Confused professors shocked
schools are cutting their hours
to avoid Obamacare penalties

Barack Obama is a former adjunct professor of constitutional law, and no group has been more solidly supportive of his liberal agenda than the professorial class. So it is a sweet irony that the latest group getting hammered by the mandates of Obamacare are … wait for it … adjunct professors. The Wall Street Journal reports: The federal health-care overhaul is prompting some colleges and universities to cut the hours of adjunct professors. [...] The Affordable Care Act requires large employers to offer a minimum level of health insurance to employees who work 30 hours a week

Welcome to my world. I lost my insurance this year because my premiums doubled. I also work at a school where teachers pay 4 cents for the same plan that would cost me $400 a paycheck. I have not had a raise in three years and only make $23,000 a year and he says he can´t afford insurance on his $40,000 salary. Poor baby. I didn´t vote for this boob but I am getting screwed non the less. You probably did vote for the idiots that thought the affordable care act was obama´s gift to America. You deserve it but I don´t. Glad to see that some of the pooh is finally splashing back on you guys.

My daughter was notified that she will be losing hours, too, at her hourly job. She makes $15/hour, with no benefits, and she´s trying to pay for school. Thanks, Obama.

Having worked at a major university for many years it´s good news to finally see these ivory tower elitists finally get the shaft. I´ve seen many of these part-timers (oops...adjunct profs). They teach a few hours a week but otherwise have nothing to do but come in late and wander around chatting with other do-nothings. And they get grad assistants to actually do the work of grading papers and tests.

It is stinging irony that the dopey professors who voted overwhelmongly for obama are getting what is coming to them. But it´s sad that smart people like posters 2 and 3 pay a price for the stupidity of obama supporters.

Most professors who lost insurance and hours are too stupid to understand their plight. One guy quoted in the article blamed his employer. Although it my conjecture, others are likely to blame the insurance companies, or maybe GW Bush. Few have the sense to understand that obamacare is a disaster for the the country and a setback for them.

Adjuncts are treated very poorly at the college where I work. The tenured faculty and unions could care less (that is a broad statement - not true of everyone but there has never been effectual support for people who often work very, very hard). The unions are blaming the college administrators and lack of state funding. They will not, simply will not, consider the effects of Obamacare. If Zippy says something it is taken as gospel truth.

It would be nice to think that there will be so much pain that a backlash against Zippy will start to swell. But this is part of the plan to get us all into a single-payer system. It is working. Makes me sick.

Forgot to add that, in my department, our adjuncts attend faculty meetings, serve on committees, plan with full-time folks like me when changes have to be made, etc. They will do anything to hang on to their part-time work. I take absolutely no joy in seeing them get the shaft, even though they bear some of the responsibility for not seeing through progressive lies.

What world are these people living in where they thought that university administrators were to be trusted? These teachers are probably adjuncts because they´re not competitive in the job market for tenure-track jobs, aren´t willing to move to another place, or are in fields where there are only one or two openings in the country for full-time employment in their area of expertise. Many universities have done away with tenure-track jobs entirely, of course, in order to avoid having to pay extended benefits. I have plenty of friends who teach part-time in universities (sometimes travelling great distances every day to teach at two or three schools). None of them expect to have any job security, trust any administrator--EVER--, or in most cases, expect to be covered by any sort of benefit package. They realize that they have gone into fields that have very little value in today´s marketplace, but love their subject matter so much that they will do anything to teach it. (They´re in the arts.) One of my colleagues lives in a dorm as a "faculty in residence" this year in order to make ends meet. These people put together a living as best they can and don´t EXPECT to be taken care of by their employers and never have assumed that they ever WOULD have such. These people are certainly in the minority. Too bad so many "professors" don´t have the same attitude. In the university where I teach, adjuncts are not allowed to teach more than 6 years, as this is what is officially allowed by one of the oversight organizations (can´t remember if it´s American Association of University Professors or not).

My Mom worked as an instructor in four year college for 20 years. She worked with capital W. Her field was business. And, in her day most of the other professors did their jobs too. No one was ivory tower dwellers. Then things changed. Affirmative action meant more watered down classes and Black studies, women´s studies, etc. That attracted the lounge lizards and smoke blowers. Today a good education in almost impossible to find at the same level as it was in my day. It is astonishing how little graduates know. Anything that shakes up the elites is good. Yes, I will suffer too. But my financial hit is nothing I am not used to. Elites will suffer double. This is not supposed to happen to THEM.

Didn´t you get the memo ? Insurance exchanges will solve all of your problems.
Some states are refusing to jump onboard.
Don´t get sick while the details are being worked out.

Gorgeous Easter Eggs From the
Master Patissiers of France
Slate, by Kristin Hohenadel    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/20/2014 6:18:20 AM     Post Reply
Chocolatiers love a holiday, be it Christmas, Valentine’s Day, or Easter. The French version of the Easter Bunny is Easter Bells (les cloches de Pâques)—which allegedly fly to Rome for a few days before the holiday to be blessed by the Pope before returning with chocolate eggs for the kids. But you don’t have to hunt very far to find French chocolate and pastry shop windows full of Easter eggs all trying to out-cute, out-class, or simply out-design one another. Good-looking pastries and other sweets are a modestly priced pleasure in France. But like fashion designers, French patissiers and chocolatiers

   

 



 
Say Goodbye to Taiwan
National Interest Magazine, by John J. Mearsheimer    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/20/2014 6:11:05 AM     Post Reply
WHAT ARE the implications for Taiwan of China’s continued rise? Not today. Not next year. No, the real dilemma Taiwan will confront looms in the decades ahead, when China, whose continued economic growth seems likely although not a sure thing, is far more powerful than it is today. Contemporary China does not possess significant military power; its military forces are inferior, and not by a small margin, to those of the United States. Beijing would be making a huge mistake to pick a fight with the American military nowadays. China, in other words, is constrained by the present global balance

The Bundy Ranch Standoff

The immediate "crisis" portion of the standoff involving the federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy over his cattle grazing on federal land ended last week. Whether this will be end of Bundy´s troubles with the BLM, who have been in court with him over his refusal to pay fees to them for decades, remains to be seen, with the Bundys reporting that they´ve received registered mail from the BLM this week that they haven´t opened yet. I blogged about a lot of the factual background of the conflict here, with links to some relevant court documents. This story

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

Spotlighting a law that stripped

WASHINGTON — Daniel Swalm was researching his family when he came across a disturbing episode in immigration history. That discovery would lead to a move in the U.S. Senate to apologize for action the nation took more than a century ago. Swalm discovered that under an obscure 1907 law, his grandmother Elsie, born and raised in Minnesota, was stripped of her U.S. citizenship after marrying an immigrant from Sweden. Swalm had never heard of the Expatriation Act that required a U.S.-born woman who married a foreigner to "take the nationality of her husband." Swalm, who lives in Minneapolis, found out about the law

Russian Regular Forces To Invade

This “Open Letter to the Friends of Ukraine,” by a guest columnist who writes under the pen name of Irina Gokieli, dated April 19, offers the author’s pessimistic scenario of forthcoming events in what Vladimir Putin now calls “NewRussia.” “NewRussia” encompasses southeastern Ukraine and parts of Moldova. She predicts an invasion by regular Russian troops near the end of the first week of May under the pretext of restoring order, although she does not rule out, as an alternative, an alliance of Putin with certain Ukrainian politicians and oligarchs. Notably the author makes a persuasive case that the long-term consequences

TO THE RECENT spate of 50th-anniversary reflections on major political and cultural milestones — the 1963 March on Washington, the assassination of John F. Kennedy, the Beatles on the Ed Sullivan Show — get ready to add another: The presidential campaign of Barry Goldwater, the most influential loser in modern American politics. Goldwater was nicknamed “Mr. Conservative,” but now even liberals adore him. Robert F. Kennedy Jr. penned an essay a few years back effusive in its praise for Goldwater, whom he described as an exemplar of civility, decency, and integrity. Goldwater was “neither mean-spirited nor racist,” wrote Kennedy; he challenged

White House blames fox for

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
