College Professors
Get What They Asked For,
Don´t Like It Much

American Thinker, by Gary Jason

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 12/1/2012 11:39:38 AM

There is an antique saying -- no less true for its antiquity -- that you need to be careful what you wish for, because you just might get it. This came to mind when I read a recent report about what is happening at a Pennsylvania college. One of President Obama´s most loyal -- not to say fawning -- constituencies clearly is academia.(snip)This is why the news about the Community College of Allegheny County (CCAC) is so richly ironic. CCAC has just announced that because of ObamaCare, it will have to slash the hours of 400 of its employees

3 jobs will be needed to work 40 hours a week.

Unemployment will also go up. Question is, how much?

Combined with the fiscal cliff, another recession could be coming. Just like the Roosevelt years...

The dirty little secret of the academic world is that fulltime faculty hold adjunct faculty in low regard, and will stiff them in a new york minute, to preserve their own jobs.
So I don´t expect to see much of a protest in the academic world over this health care mandate.

True, #2. Adjunct faculty are treated like garbage in most colleges. Some of them do as much work as the full-time people for about a tenth of the salary.

To add to #2´s correct observation - ´´Professor´´ Barry Obama was an adjunct instructor whilst at Chicago. And no, he was never offered tenure.

Adjuncts do a lot more work in the classroom than the tenured faculty. The tenured faculty are too busy playing academic politics, publishing books and articles that no one reads, and latching on the latest left-wing causes. Since they have tenure, they have the work ethic and drive of the average unionized Hostess baker. Henry Kissinger said that the politics of academia are the most fierce because there is so little at stake. I used to be an adjunct but quit when I realized that ALL of academia is just a giant scam. Academia exists primarily to provide cushy, overpaid jobs for far left-wing liberal Democrats and to provide a training ground for future liberal activists. There is no room for a conservative in modern academia.

What also sucks is the way we are looked at and treated by full-time liberal jerk faculty.

I am afraid there will be no outrage by the moronic constituents that voted for BO a second time. One, because when the bleep hits the perennial fan, they will be too embarrased to speak out, and two, the never-ending lable of being a racist will chill any sort of criticism (even those who did not vote for him).

His racist rant is a thinly veiled suppression of speech and debate, like China, Russia and the ME. And it is being blindly followed by the press, schools, colleges, films and theater.

My only consolation in this disaster of an election is that the people who voted for the Kenyan are the ones who will likely suffer the most under his reign. For most conservatives, it mostly will be higher taxes. For BO supporters it will be underemployment or no job, no prospects, and subsistence living for their whole lives.

The most nauseating and greedy of all the public service employees are the members of academia. The private sector is so unaware of the comfortable working conditions and lives these parasites have. Particularly when it´s a husband/wife team. Just imagine what their combined salaries and/or pensions must be.

Any Obamacare costs incurred by academia will just be passed on to the students in higher tuition or paid by the state taxpayers for state schools. The tenured professors could care less about increased tuition.

Abortion and Informed Consent
American Thinker, by Carol Brown    Original Article
Posted By: magnante- 7/31/2013 7:32:48 AM     Post Reply
Informed consent is a big deal in health care. And it should be. (snip) Once a woman says she wants an abortion, medical standards and norms change. If the process of getting informed consent involves making the unknown, known, the process in the abortion industry is all about unknowing. When I regrettably and wrongly had an abortion many years ago, no one at Planned Parenthood explained anything to me -- and I mean nothing -- about my baby´s development. No one even showed me a picture of a 3-month old baby in the womb.

San Diego mayor and veteran Congressman Bob Filner is a serial molester of women who enjoyed immunity from exposure by his friends in the media who "pretty much knew" about his abuses but chose to ignore them as a non-story. We know this because a brave member of the San Diego media crowd has admitted it.(snip) Scorn is the appropriate response. The San Diego media deserves a big helping of humiliation over covering this up. There is no profession more conscious of prestige than the media. Just look at all the awards they give each other.

As a black conservative tea party activist, I am extremely excited about Bill O´Reilly´s recent series of commentaries and TV shows addressing the hypocrisy and exploitation by the American race industry that has and continues to devastate the black community. O´Reilly boldly called out all of the usual suspects: Sharpton, Jackson, the Congressional Black Caucus and Obama. Eric Holder and others on the left have been whining and arrogantly scolding us saying that we need an honest discussion about race in America.

How is the U.S. like Sweden? In its low murder rate. That is, if you include in the statistics only non-blacks in the U.S. legally.(snip)In round numbers, there are about 250 million non-blacks in the U.S. legally. So their murder rate is about 1.0 per 100,000, or the same as Sweden´s. A murder rate of 1.0 is in the same league as the Europeans who like to call us gun-crazy cowboys. But it´s not the "cowboys" who are doing the killing. (In fact, Idaho, Montana, Utah, and Wyoming have murder rates significantly lower than the U.S. average.

Remember when scientists and other truth-seekers used to get all riled up about the way the Catholic Church treated Galileo? The outcry was not over the fact that Galileo was a "peer-reviewed" researcher, and therefore beyond question. Quite the contrary: the argument was that, from the point of view of the quest for truth, no one, including the representatives of official orthodoxy and authority, ought to be regarded as beyond question. In the Michael Mann lawsuit against Mark Steyn and National Review, it is the "award-winning researcher" who is joining the fight for Church orthodoxy

Money can´t buy the kind of political boost Huma Abedin is receiving. Like her mentor Hillary Clinton, the stand-by-your-man strategy will be her gateway to widespread popularity and respect. Don´t feel sorry for the Democrats over losing a former rising star politician like Anthony Weiner, whose future is so hopeless that even the New York Times says it´s time to go. They have gained an even more promising candidate for high office. Huma Abedin is better-looking, better spoken, and more appealing than her role model.(snip)Although raised in Saudi Arabia, Ms. Abedin was born in Kalamazoo, Michigan, a natural born American.

Much has been made of Obama´s impromptu crashing of the press briefing at the White House the other day to weigh in yet again on Trayvon Martin´s death. The reception of Obama´s discussion reminded me of the movie The King´s Speech, where the man who would be king of England had to give just one good speech, so all of England would feel comfort. As in the movie, I chuckled at the big deal made by "reporters" that the man who is supposed to be a great orator and "Leader of the formerly Free World" did so without his "blankie,"

Now we have proof that the current Obama-Holder campaign against stand-your-ground laws is nothing more than a pose intended to distract from their political problems, having whipped up a racialist fury and pushed prosecution of George Zimmerman. Although State Senator Barack Obama could boast of few legislative accomplishments, one thing he did do was co-sponsor a bill strengthening the Illionois stand-your-ground law. The Illinois Review writes: The Obama-sponsored bill (SB 2386) enlarged the state´s 1961 law by shielding the person who was attacked from being sued in civil court by perpetrators or their estates

The IRS Intervened
in Tea Party Elections

Did the IRS intervene in Federal election campaigns for Congress? According to the Washington Times, U.S. Treasury investigative special agent Dennis Martel has uncovered a new example of political abuse. On March 9, 2010, Christine O´Donnell´s personal income tax records were illegally accessed by a Delaware public official. Sen. Charles Grassley (R-IA) reports that a previously-undisclosed "back door" to the IRS computer system was used to invade the privacy of Christine O´Donnell´s tax records. Who knew? It turns out that state government criminal investigators can directly -- though illegally -- access IRS records through a "back door."

We can now officially say that the IRS harassment of conservative groups is a political scandal connected to the Obama political machine.

Step-by-step the chain is being followed upward (snip)Now we begin to prepare the vice to squeeze the Obama political appointee, perhaps making an immunity grant to Lois Lerner a possibility. Keep in mind, it is not an offer, it is an involuntary grant she cannot refuse.

President Obama has been rolling up his sleeves campaigning across the country delivering a surreal stump speech message supposedly aimed at the middle class: big government works, Obamacare is manna from heaven, the wave of recent scandals are “phony” figments of the imagination, and all economic problems are the fault of the Republicans. Conveniently, he leaves out the bankruptcy of Detroit, a city run by his own party for more than half a century. His message is so stale and unconvincing, that even The New York Times and Washington Post have noticed. Both papers, usually loyal to Obama, remarked that

Many low-income families receive government assistance to help them purchase food and housing. Diapers are another story, a new study suggests. In what they are calling the first peer-reviewed study to quantify diaper need, Yale University researchers have found nearly a third of mothers cannot afford to purchase their infants diapers, raising health risks for not only babies but for moms who become stressed over the finances.

Mideast: The sequester has "cost jobs," says President Obama, and "gutted investments in education and science and medical research." But somehow he´s earmarked $500 million for Hamas terrorists. Circumventing Congress and with no fanfare, President Obama last week issued an executive order enabling him to send an additional $500 million directly to the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank — much of which you can bet will wind up going to the Iranian-backed Hamas terrorist organization. According to Obama, "it is important to the national security interests of the United States to waive the provisions of" Congress´ legislative restrictions "in
