The Student Government Assn. at Western Kentucky University has passed a resolution that free college tuition ought to be given to “black” students–I put “black” in quotes because they don’t define the term–as reparations for slavery, which ended 150 years ago ( https://www.usnews.com/news/best-states/kentucky/articles/2017-04-21/wku-student-government-calls-for-free-tuition-as-reparations ).
And by the way–what kind of reward is a college “education” that blows four or five years of your life to give you a bachelor’s degree in Nothing Studies?
Don’t you just love liberals? They give away other people’s hard-earned money so they can feel good about themselves. You don’t see them ponying up any of their own money.
Maybe I ought to demand reparations from Italy: the Romans enslaved my ancestors. With the interest accruing over 2,000 years, that ought to be a pretty hefty wad of dough.
Another thing that makes liberals feel righteous is stirring up strife among people who would otherwise be at peace with one another. The last thing they want is racial harmony. It would be a calamity for them.
Anyway, there you have it–more proof that America has too many colleges and universities, with way too many people in them, way too much money poured into it, and no longer serves any constructive purpose whatsoever.
Cut the funding now. These ninnies on the WKU Student Government panel need to be out in the real world, working and trying to support themselves. It might teach them a thing or two about cavalierly slinging around other people’s money to indulge a political delusion.
No, this is not an April Fool story. Yesterday all the Democrats in the Montana state legislature voted against a bill to ban Muslim sharia law in their state ( https://lynx.media/2017/03/31/montana-democrats-vote-bill-banning-sharia-law/ ).
All the Republicans voted for it, so the bill passed, 56-44. But now it will go to Montana’s governor, another Democrat. I will be amazed if he signs it.
A nut-case in the legislature said any measure banning the use of foreign legal systems in Montana would send a “dangerous message to minority groups.”
What? You mean competing legal systems would be a cool thing to have in your state? Including the Muslim system that calls for oppressing women and putting homosexuals to death? Do Democrats really, truly, think that would be a good idea?
I guess they do. Which means they’re crazy. Sure, let’s have a nice hefty dose of sharia in our state! That ought to lead to some really interesting jurisdictional squabbles. Along with some deaths.
The sooner this insane political party gets put out of business forever, the better. Because now they’re not only a perpetual annoyance, but a threat to public safety.
President Donald Trump (I do enjoy typing that!) this morning posted a Twitter message threatening to cut off federal funds to the University of California/Berkeley because of student rioting ( http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2017/02/02/donald-trump-threatens-cancel-federal-funds-berkeley-riots-shut-milo-event/ ).
See, Berkeley was going to have a conservative speaker, one Milo Yiannopoulos, so the “students” had to riot and create a tumult so that the speech would have to be canceled on account of inability to ensure security. Hard to do that when everybody’s rioting.
To demonstrate their tolerance, their good will, and their acute reasoning, the students burned ATM machines, broke bank windows, beat people up, and set fires on and around the campus. This I love: they even torched and looted a Starbuck’s! Oops–it seems being a big fat prating liberal won’t protect you from other liberals.
This is our chance–and it won’t come again!–to starve leftism right there in its nest. The university is the nest where leftist vermin hatches. This is the training ground, the propaganda center, where otherwise normal young people are turned into raving idiots.
There is no reason whatsoever for 17 to 20 million Americans to be enrolled in assorted colleges and universities. It’s bad for the country, bad for the students who have enormous debts to pay off but have been taught nothing but how to be nincompoops, and good only for the academics themselves, who get to suck America’s blood, and a really nice pension at the end.
Now is the time to cut America’s overgrown, over-funded university system down to size–not with a scalpel, but an axe.
Posterity will thank us for it.
The bigger a movie big-shot you are, I guess, the more you can mouth off.
Now it’s James Cameron–Terminator, The Abyss, Titanic, Avatar: a bunch of big movies like that can give you a really big mouth–warning us that we’re all gonna die unless we embrace the saving faith of Global Warming/Climate Change and start listening to Democrats instead of indulging in criminal follies like electing Donald Trump ( http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2017/01/29/james-cameron-on-the-trump-administration-these-people-are-insane.html ). And blah-blah-blah.
Is there any room left for doubt that Climate Change has become a species of religion? Cameron’s hooked up now with some guy named Simcha Jacobovici, last seen claiming to have found Jesus Christ’s brother’s tomb with the body still in it. That claim quietly died out for lack of proof. But if only they could put Jesus Christ away for good! Then we’d all be free to worship Mother Gaea, or Chuck Schumer, or both.
I admit to having enjoyed the first two Terminator movies. Just because Cameron is as big a fat-head as Arnold Schwarzenegger himself doesn’t mean they couldn’t make a couple of compelling movies. But I don’t think I’ll bother with any more of Cameron’s movies. I repent having contributed time and money to an artistic enterprise that helped cause this guy’s head to swell perilously close to the breaking point.
Okay, tell me: you want this woman to “teach” your children because_______?
Yes, here’s one of thousands of unionized classroom schoolteachers who have come unhinged because Donald Trump is now president and Hillary Clinton isn’t. Go to youtube and search “anti-Trump teachers” and you’ll find video galore.
This particular “teacher” shoots her water pistol at a picture of President Trump and screams while doing it.
And the collidge “teachers” and professors are just as wacked-out as this one.
Meanwhile, Democrats mean to figure out “how to talk to regular Americans.”
That’s funny–I thought their whole idea was to fundamentally transform the country so there wouldn’t be any regular Americans left in it.
Well, hey, if a lot of angry foul-mouthed feminists can do it, Climate Change kooks can do it, too–a big fat march on Washington.
They’re organizing right now to “take a stand for science in politics” ( http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation-now/2017/01/26/first-women-now-scientists-march-washington/97079742/ ). So much for not politicizing science.
But of course what they’re really going to march for is Climate Change/Global Warming, which they like to call “facts with no alternatives,” and all the colossal Big Government action which that would entail. It’s just the same old Save The Planet crap–the biggest and best excuse lefties have ever come up with for their insatiable appetite for more and more power over regular people’s lives. Never mind it’s been repeatedly shown to be just fudged data and outright lies.
It cannot be denied that throughout earth’s history, local and regional climates change all the time. These are natural processes and no government, no matter how much power it grabs with both hands, can control them.
We can expect to see a lot of “marches” by a lot of left-wing losers over at least the next year or two.
Thankfully, we now have a president who has the courage and the common sense to ignore them. And we should, too.
You can’t make this stuff up–and why would you want to?
Democrats from all around the country will soon be meeting in a “retreat” in West Virginia to discuss “how to talk to regular Americans” ( http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2017/01/25/democrats-teaching-how-to-talk-to-real-americans/ )–sort of like cats getting together to discuss how to talk to mice.
“Yeah, yeah–we’re gonna get our mojo back! Our only problem, last time out, was that we didn’t know the right sales pitch. All we have to do is figure out how to get people who are not mentally ill to realize that they really want what our party has to offer. Open borders! Lots and lots of Muslims brought in without checking to see if they might be in a jihad frame of mind! Transgender bathrooms! Lots more public funding for abortion! Globalism out the wazoo! Ten thousand new regulations a day, to stop Climate Change! High taxes like you never dreamed were possible! Obamacare!
“We know you peasants really want that stuff! It’s just that you don’t know you want it! So we’re gonna work out how to make you see the light!”
The gulf, the abyss, that separates Democrats from regular Americans can only be bridged by sheer fantasy. But that’s all right: Democrats have that in abundance.
Fort Sumter, 1861–the Civil War begins
Bearing in mind Infowars’ occasional penchant for getting a tad more worked up than the situation warrants, it still piques our interest to read that certain American millionaires, including a lot of Silicon Valley panjandrums, are fleeing to New Zealand for fear of a “crackup of civilization” and impending civil war at home. (http://www.infowars.com/u-s-elites-buying-new-zealand-redoubts-to-escape-crackup-of-civilization/)
Since the day after Election Day, 2016, over 13,000 wealthy Americans have registered with New Zealand immigration authorities. Some New Zealanders are not happy about that, but hey, it could be worse–we could be sending them celebrities.
So… America’s ruling class prepares to flee the consequences of its ham-fisted mishandling of the country’s business for the past eight years, and then some. Think the folks in New Zealand will want to give them a crack at running their country for them?
Doubtless the Far Left would love a civil war, if it meant a lot of people would get killed, the American republic would collapse, and they’d come out on top. They would like it even more if they got their poor schnook followers to fight it for them, with themselves coming out of hiding only after all the shooting stopped.
But I think most of the privately-owned firearms in America belong to persons not inclined to rally round Michael Moore, Madonna, and the Clintons. And bearing that in mind, there will be no civil war–just a lot of messiness for our new president and his team to clean up.
Libs are gonna be surprised by how easily America can do without them.
Public education strikes again!
A group calling itself the “Caucus of Working Educators”–that sounds so much grander than “bunch of classroom teachers”–has announced its plan to devote a week of the curriculum to “Black Lives Matter,” the radical racialist, anti-police group ( http://www.philly.com/philly/education/20170122_Phila__teachers_plan_Black_Lives_Matter_week_-_not_all_are_happy.html ).
Not all the teachers are happy about this. It has to be pretty far out, to make unionized teachers uneasy. But the Caucus is pushing “Six Days of Action”–that sounds pretty grand, too; but wait for the punchline–highlighted by giving the kiddies a little item entitled “The Revolution is Always Now.”
“The Revolution is Always Now” is… “coloring pages.” Shazzam! A coloring book! Your school tax dollars at work!
Some “transgender affirming” will also be thrown in. For laughs, maybe?
One teacher said he wasn’t exactly thrilled with teaching the kiddies that “Western society makes war on black people.”
Just one question. You continue to send your kids to these schools because…?
