Michigan Professor Strips
Naked In Class, Shouts
'There Is No F--king God'

NewsBusters, by Noel Sheppard

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 10/2/2012 12:02:54 PM

The rigors of teaching apparently got to Michigan State University professor John McCarthy Monday. According to multiple sources, the math teacher stripped naked in the middle of his Calculus 1 class and started shouting obscenities. Freshman Kyle Hillman told MLive.com that while walking the class through a routine derivative equation, McCarthy said, "Math is all about questions and answers. And Steve Jobs invented the computer, but what do computers do? They ask questions and we answer them." "He started talking about his colleagues and how they're all actors," Hillman told MLive.com.

Wow. This is just normal behavior for freak leftist radicals. There has been criticism of Romney that he would take us back to the 50's. You can guarantee if we had the morality in place like the 50's this insane jerk would be fired on the spot. OTH, he wouldn't have been hired in the first place.

As a professional mathematician, he would expect his words to be parsed. He may be right that there may be no "F****** God", but there may still be others.

If I'm going to hell for thinking that then I want to blame several Catholic Nuns (OP's) who insisted on logical linguistic expression above all.

They're a lotta nut jobs in Academe.

Bored, I guess, just reading his lesson outline to our class--an outline probably drafted around 1942-52 or so (I swear I saw a moth or two flutter out when he turned the pages)--out of his dusty old three ring binder, one of my former professors, who was supposed to be teaching us a "profession," and who looked a lot like "Mr. Peepers", took off his shoes one day, got up on a desk, did a little dance, and sang "Yes we have no bananas" in falsetto.

His secret advice to us was that, no matter how unoriginal, without merit, and totally boring the supposed "research" paper you might write, if you submitted it to enough publishers (I think his record was publication by the 38th publication he submitted one paper to--sooner or later--one of them would surrender (he would also re-submit the same paper to some publications, over and over again) and publish it.

A year or so later I heard the news that he had been made a full Professor.

#7, criminal charges require proving a requisite mental state. In the case of indecent exposure, it's usually something along the lines of "with the intent to arouse or satisfy the sexual desires of himself or another." Disorderly is something like "knowingly does an act in such a manner as to disturb another."

In a case like this, you'd have difficulty proving the intent or the knowledge requirements, since he clearly was acting irrationally.

Lucky for the nutty professor, he didn't say something that might hurt his career -- like that anthropogenic-climate-change theory is a scam. Or that Obama is still hiding some potentially-embarrassing (or even potentially-incriminating) secret by refusing to release school records and generating more than one bogus birth certificate. (Admitting skepticism over either matter can be enough to end someone's career in some circles.)

First charges filed in connection

Federal prosecutors have filed criminal charges against an alleged militia leader in connection with the Sept. 11, 2012 terrorist attacks on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, CBS News has confirmed. Ahmed Khattalah becomes the first person charged in connection with the attack that killed four Americans. Khattalah is a Libyan militia leader who admitted to being in Benghazi last Sept. 11, Global Post reported. Reuters reported last year that officials considered Khattala a suspect in the attacks but U.S. investigators were not sure about the scope of his role. The charges against him are under seal.

RUSH: There is a somewhat shocking report that I came across today at a website run by Doug Ross. It´s called the Conservative Report. Doug Ross maintains here that Valerie Jarrett gave the orders to stand down in Benghazi. Valerie Jarrett, who constitutionally is not in the chain of command and cannot do that. And that´s why this, if true, is a bombshell. Valerie Jarrett nixed the raid on bin Laden three separate times, remember, and the adults had to come in and basically act on the intel that they had as to where bin Laden was.

The federal government has determined that obesity is a national health epidemic, and while obesity-prevention goals were established at the national level in 2012, the question now is how to determine if those goals are being met -- not just nationally, but in your very own neighborhood. The Institute of Medicine (IOM) has just released a report listing 83 ways to "assess the progress made in every community" -- and at the national level -- in the fight against obesity. Some of the benchmarks would require new legislation or executive action to change the way we live and work. (See below)

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus says the party has to “control the referees that we bring into our playground” — the Republican primary debates ahead of the 2016 presidential election. Those referees, he says, shouldn’t be producing documentaries hailing Hillary Clinton, the likely Democratic nominee, while they’re also orchestrating debates among Republicans. “I’m not going to sit around and let this happen anymore,” he said. The Republican National Committee has announced it will not allow CNN and NBC to hold primary debates unless the networks pulls their production of films they’re planning about former secretary of

President Obama’s signature legislation, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, has stolen the joy from being a physician or hospital administrator, Dr. Ben Carson said. On Fox News on Monday, Dr. Carson called Obamacare a killjoy — and a financial disaster. “We’ve had three years now to see what’s in it,” he said, “and the level of enthusiasm has not gone up. In fact, it is going down as people are finding out what’s happening.” Dr. Carson also had a message for Americans who don’t want Obamacare: Get moving and get politicos to repeal it.

At least now, after having his email account hacked by high-level security-breacher Guccifer, Colin Powell´s besmirching of the Republican Party´s "shift to the right" and "identity crisis" finally makes sense.

For nearly a year, we have had no answer to why the administration lied about Benghazi — why it told the world, not to mention the parents of our murdered SEALs at the funeral of their sons, that the cause of that fatal conflagration was an anti-Islamic video no one saw, when the various arms of our executive branch (White House, State and intelligence) already knew, or strongly suspected, it was a terror attack orchestrated by al-Qaeda affiliates. You only have to read the now infamous talking points to know that. That this lie was deeply immoral is obvious.

There’s a Tsarnaev out there, somewhere – could be the Mahgreb, the Levant, the Horn of Africa, the Indian sub-continent – who knows? So, as Richard Fernandez writes, “Shelter in place, this time globally.” Maybe it will work. Maybe by the end of the day there will be, unlike Benghazi a year on, men in custody. But if not?
