Is anyone in the least bit surprised?

jimmyk

almost never participating in faculty activities.

Consistent with his status as being a mere adjunct, but also no doubt with his not wanting to betray his utter lack of knowledge of the law.

NK

JimmyK-- that's not fair-- he didn't have time for faculty activities, he was otherwise engaged by Mayor Daley/Cook Machine commitments.

Pofarmer

So, his class was seen as a joke, basically.

This unsurprising story of Obama starting big and ending small at UCLS reminded me of Mel Brooks telling Johnny Carson about meeting Cary Grant for the first time. Hilarious, at least to me.

rse

No. No. Tom he would not have been lecturing. That's not Best Practice you see. And since he and Ayers were simultaneously involved in creating the Best Practice template at the time, it would have been some sort of hands-on Action Research for extra credit or coursework. The actual classwork would have been Meaningful Dialogues sharing Cultural Perspectives.

And I have a new post up called "Using Education to Create the Behavior Government Officials Want in Future Citizens" in the LUN. Unfortunately the Columbine template is back without any question and I do not say that lightly. School officials in various districts trying to fight back from the spectre that systems thinking ties into Eastern spirituality if not some type of pagan Earth worship which of course its practitioners actually do say, introduced the 1992 essay I wrote about today. Turns out it definitively linked systems thinking and Transformational OBE to altering the human personality to get to an altered future.

Scientistic to the core in the Hayek/Von Mises sense these profs and researchers really did envision redesigning all the social systems going forward. That was what was being piloted in Colorado, not just OBE. I got the book yesterday that inspired all these tragic visions. So graphic.

Very sad. I have had a bunch of smoking guns this week and all recently fired with a history of tragedy.

And sunlight is the only way I know.

Jane - Get off the couch your country needs you!

Some former faculty colleagues today describe Obama as disengaged, doing only what was minimally required and almost never participating in faculty activities.

Does anyone doubt that some former WH colleagues will have the same diagnosis a year from now. It sounds exactly like what he does as president.

Where was this story before 2008? I thought The Washington Examiner was operating at that time or am I wrong?

DebinNC,

That was a perfect but hilarious analogy. God, I miss Carson and his show especially his guests like Georgie Gobel and Mel Brooks. That was a time when I could actually stay up way past the monologue and smile at the fact that Ted Koppel had one less watcher that night:)

daddy

At least they haven't yet blamed it on Global Warming:

Air pollution has also been shown to “negatively impact penis size.”

"Male private parts are shrinking, according to a new Italian study on sexuality. The study’s leaders claim to have bona fide research that says the average size of a penis is roughly 10 percent smaller than it was 50 years ago."

In the future we will all be Chinese:(

Neo

Tom Friedman hits on "true gold" ...

They might want to look at the chauvinistic bile that is pumped out by some of their own media — on satellite television stations and Web sites or sold in sidewalk bookstores outside of mosques — insulting Shiites, Jews, Christians, Sufis and anyone else who is not a Sunni, or fundamentalist, Muslim. There are people in their countries for whom hating “the other” has become a source of identity and a collective excuse for failing to realize their own potential.
... doesn't that sound just like MSNBC ???

Daddy, I was pointing out how the whole affair, reminds me of Pres. McNeil and his stand against the Omicronians.

Rush's Tape Delayed rant this morning is about the Media putting up a bogus meme that the Economy is turning around.

daddy,

How long before they blame Bush for the reduction in size?

long-time lurker

John McCormack is a good reporter, I think. LUN is his analysis of Romney's comment about the 47%. McCormack thinks that Romney fails to understand American conservatism because (no surprise) he is not a conservative, though he is running as the nominee of the conservative party. Here's a key sentence in McCormack's article: "Conservatives know--and explain why--their economic policies will help the poor, as well as senior citizens, working families, and our troops who pay no income taxes. Conservatives realize that the Republican party is not the party of people who want to be rich, it's the party of people who want to be free."

I wondered what you all would think of this piece, since some of you had such viscerally negative reactions to McCormack's boss, Bill Kristol. Is this any better, daddy et al.?

Lysenkoists, every one of them.

Well one fundamental transformation that the Soviets did succeed at was the deep implantation of the disease of envy in their population. Marxism is of course the systematization of busybody-ness -- instead of doing your own work you are constantly obsessed with the danger that some person's possible success might disturb the fairness of the universe.

Largest single component of givers to Obama campaign are professors at the major elite universities. Next come the tech companies. I wonder were the MFM are ranked in terms of donations?

daddy

Megyn Kelly doing a nice job explaining the case of HHS Head Sibelius violating the Hatch Act and then, having been caught, having to pay back the money it cost for her Govt sponsored Political Campaigning.

Megyn did her homework and tells us that part of the money paid back for the trip was paid not by the DNC as reported by Politico, CBS NBC etc, but was instead paid back from HHS Funds, which are Taxpayer Funds. (ie our money)

So no matter what the MSM is telling us, our Tax Dollars paid for Sibelius's illegal Tax Payer funded Campaign junket. We paid for all of it before she was caught, and we still paid for much if not most of it after she was caught.

What a nice racket.

What they might lack in terms of handing over cash, they certainly make up for with in-kind contributions of services rendered, 24x7x365x4.

No, it stinks. It's fine to make philosophical points critical of nominees during the primaries and it's fine to do so after the candidate wins or loses the election.
If McCormack's view is that Barry needs to be defeated (is there a sane or responsible person who thinks otherwise?) then how does making these points now advance that overriding concern?

short-time concern troll

If that McCormack piece doesn't work for you, I've got plenty of other "Romney sucks and has already lost the election" links.

It really breaks my heart to have to show up on this blog, out of the blue, right before the election, and post all these negative Romney links, because I've been a conservative Christian my whole life who's voted Republican in every election since Lincoln.

But I also think it's important that we face the reality that Obama's going to win another term and there's nothing we can do about it. :(

Jane - that snippet from Daddy at 2:58 would be a perfect illustration for your next radio show about how mainstream media outlets don't get their facts straight.

"Some former faculty colleagues today describe Obama as disengaged, doing only what was minimally required and almost never participating in faculty activities."

Well obviously he was involved in helping Michelle handle the very heavy load of casework in her $350,000 Hospital Job. Completely understandable.

Captain Hate

O/T Evidently the MFM dimwits missing stories extends to sports also:

LOL. How does an SEC football coach only have $300 in his pocket and $500 in a checking account?

Former Michigan State football coach John L. Smith has $25.7 million in liabilities against only $1.2 million in assets, most of which is tied up in retirement funds, according to bankruptcy documents filed Wednesday in federal court.

The documents detail the grave financial problems facing Smith, the Arkansas coach who filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy Sept. 6.

In the court filing, he listed just $300 in cash on hand and $500 in his checking account.

Smith estimates the only real property he owns as worth $2,000 from a "1/4 interest in deceased parents real estate -- 8 acres in Iona, Idaho, worth $8,000 (total)."

Smith, 63, publicly disclosed in July that he faced financial problems stemming from real estate investment losses he suffered when he was head coach at Louisville in 1998-2002.

The latest court filing shows the extent of those difficulties and come during a turbulent time for Smith, whose team was viewed as a national title contender in the preseason but is 1-2 and unranked after two embarrassing losses: to Louisiana-Monroe in overtime on Sept. 8 and a 52-0 lambasting at home by Alabama last week.

It looks like Chick-fil-A did back down...if the story is correct.

"The Christian-rooted fast food restaurant agreed to stop funding groups such as Focus on the Family that oppose same-sex marriage..."

Komen has to keep giving to Planned Parenthood. Chick-fil-A must stop giving to Focus on the Family.

I guess it's their choice...is "Anthony Martinez, executive director for the Civil Rights Agenda, the Illinois lesbian-gay-bisexual-transgender group" really that powerful????

Thanks, Captain. I just find it very, very disheartening. It's not about the money either...it's about being able to publicly stand for conservative, traditional, Biblical beliefs.
That Condell video to Muslims could just as well apply to ALL the grievance groups as far as I go. They are whining bullies that always get their way....& we cower & let them.

Businesses proudly tout their relationship with leftist groups...on their products, in their adverts,...
but if a business has a relationship with a conservative group they are descended upon by the rabid dogs of the left.

McCormack fails to understand that Romney was replying to a specific question about his campaign strategy - how to reach persuadables. It was a dinner for big R donors. They're already on board. They want answers as to how he can *win.* Obviously, his non-public remarks to them about strategy would not mirror the kinds of arguments he would make to the public to exhort them to vote for him or other Republicans. You could, I guess, get up and give a conservative pep talk to these guys - and maybe that would be part of your overall hour-long remarks - but that wouldn't have answered the particular question to which he was responding when he talked about the 47%.

I know as well as anyone that Romney is not a orthodox conservative, but this is not compelling evidence of it. AND it doesn't matter, Romney is the candidate and it's ABO.

long-time lurker

Ignatz,
I could be wrong, but I actually think his critics are trying to help Romney, who is nothing if not malleable. His current style of rhetoric will, I think, repulse that limited slice of voters who are still up for grabs. Rick Ballard seems to think these people vote from their gut and don't follow arguments, which seems right to me. If they were smart or thoughtful, they'd have already decided to vote for ABO, correct? Personally, I'm anxious for Romney to change his rhetoric, and soon, because I suspect that more than a few of those voters are downscale Catholics in Ohio and Wisconsin, or more socially conservative Virginians. These are not people who read the Weekly Standard or National Review, so Kristol and Lowry's criticisms don't reach them. (People who read the WS or NR decided to vote for Romney some decades ago.) We know that the MSM are fully engaged on Obama's side, and the undecided voters will hear that whenever they do wake up (when *does* that happen?). But these people do go to church. This year, the Republicans have an ally in the Catholic bishops, who are terrified by Obama's encroachments on religious freedom; the bishops were also not amused by the abortionpalooza in Charlotte. They don't want to be seen as partisan -- they really don't -- but they also don't want Obama to be re-elected. On the other hand, they believe in a preferential option for the poor -- which need not mean big government. I know you like what Romney said at that fundraiser, but it's just the sort of thing that will prevent the bishops from issuing more full-throated statements against Obama (never by name), and may also prevent like-minded Catholics or Reagan Democrats from pulling the lever for Romney. I realize *you* like what Romney said, but Romney already has your vote; he needs to speak in a way that won't alienate the few people who are up for grabs.

Perhaps Rick Ballard will correct me, though; he's the master of demographics. I'm just going on what I've heard tell in vague terms from pollsters -- and what I know more immediately about ecclesial politics.

As I said, I may well be wrong. But it would be nice if you didn't question my motives. I honestly don't think that criticism in a conservative publication hurts Romney's chances at all, and in fact might help -- especially if he changed his campaign strategy accordingly.

daddy

Can't find that Megyn Kelly tape yet on FOX on the web, but when her guest said that (per Politico) the DNC paid the money back, Megyn said no and pulled out the Politico story.

Here's the Link to that Politico story and the relevant part of the story that Megyn was sharp enough to be aware of and to pounce on in order to correct her guest.

"After that appearance, Sebelius had the event reclassified from official to political, and done in her personal capacity, in an attempt to avoid a Hatch Act violation. She and HHS also reimbursed the Treasury Department for all the costs associated with the trip. At least some of the cost was picked by the Democratic National Committee, according to the OSC."

Having read that, Megyn then went on to explain that HHS money is TaxPayer (our) money.

Earlier in the segment she did a nice job on rebutting 2 other claims put forth by Sibelius supporters:

1) That this was an off the cuff misspeak and not a planned Campaign speech, and

2) That immediately upon realizing it was a potential Hatch Act violation she leapt into action to rectify the problem. BS, according to Megyn's understanding of the actual timeline of how this thing went down.

Was nice to see some actual reporting going on versus having the approved soundbite narrative move ahead unchallenged. Great job Megyn, and you could tell she enjoyed doing the challenging of the narrative.

Thomas Collins

See LUN for Obama clearly indicating that he needs to be booted out of office if he is to have any chance of fundamentally transforming America. I hope Americans oblige him on Nov. 6th.

...we face the reality that Obama's going to win another term and there's nothing we can do about it.

Baloney. Considering the skewed Dem/GOP numbers in the polls (to '08 levels or worse, and that's not gonna happen), if the election were held tomorrow Romney would win the popular vote. There's electoral work to be done, in Ohio and Florida and Virginia, but there's plenty of time - and debates, and higher gas prices, and October surprises to come. There's no "reality" to late-September presidential picking.

long-time lurker

Then they need to re-read the Bible and figure out that it doesn't require the State to be the sole provider for the "poor".


They can do that after you work on your reading comprehension.

I specifically said that the preferential option for the poor need not mean big government. And anyway, that's not the point. You can wait for the bishops to change Catholic social teaching -- which you obviously don't understand -- or you can try to bring them on board and win the election.

Porchlight

I know you like what Romney said at that fundraiser, but it's just the sort of thing that will prevent the bishops from issuing more full-throated statements against Obama

long-time lurker,

The bishops have made it very clear where they stand wrt Obama, and they did so before Romney was the clear nominee. That gauntlet can not be unthrown, and will not. The bishops know what is at stake and they have taken some considerable risk in staking their opposition to Obama. They did so knowing that nearly any Republican opposing Obama would likely promote a reduction in government, as Republicans generally do.

Are you asking Romney not to take any position that might offend the Church, for fear that the bishops will stop opposing Obama? I don't think the bishops are as timid as you seem to be on this.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

--As I said, I may well be wrong. But it would be nice if you didn't question my motives.--

When did I do that?

And how does a surreptitiously recorded meeting with contributors constitute Romney's campaign rhetoric?

Perhaps Jerry Sandusky of Penn State infamy was actually just at the forefront of a new Eco movement to save Gaia by saving water:

It's one thing to save the world by sharing rides. Now, perhaps, by sharing the shower?

"Unilever, one of the world's largest consumer product makers, this week will unleash a controversial online ad campaign for its edgy Axe brand of men's grooming products that urges college students to shower with a friend, or "an attractive stranger."

Showerpooling (wink) is what they're calling it. It's all about conserving water (wink), the company says. "This is a cute irreverent way to communicate what is really a significant message: water conservation,"

Unstated, (but on the plus side) perhaps it'll reverse penis shrinkage.

long-time lurker

Ignatz,

You didn't question my motives, that was the short-term concern troll. And I think you spoke up for me, so thank you.

If you read McCormack's piece, he gives a series of similar tropes; it's not just the fundraiser (though he ought to have realized he'd be recorded there). I'm not asking him to propose big government programs; I'm just asking him not ever to say that he doesn't much care about the poor -- which is basically what he's said more than a few times. In his personal life, his generosity has been exemplary. He just can't seem to talk about this stuff without seeming really out of touch.

Porch -- Paul Ryan does a much better job of speaking about this stuff in a language that resonates with the bishops. I just want Romney to imitate his running mate, not switch to big-government policies. He could talk more about the good work that Catholic Charities does, which will end if the HHS mandate is allowed to stand. He could talk about the work that parochial schools do, especially for poor kids trapped in failing schools in the inner cities -- which will also end if the mandate stands. And each bishop has a choice in the next few weeks about how aggressively he will push this message in the pews -- so it matters how Romney addresses it right now. Lots of people weren't paying attention during the Fortnight for Freedom.

DrJ

You still have time! Come on down! Top secret meeting location and time to be disclosed on request.

If the economy, debt, scope of government, constitutional contempt, price of gas, or inept foreign policy doesn't work for you, I've got plenty of other "Obama sucks and has already lost the election" links.

It really breaks my heart to have to show up on this blog, out of the red, right before the election, and post all these negative Obama links, because I've been a socialist atheist my whole life who's voted Democrat in every election since Buchanan.

But I also think it's important that we face the reality that Obama's going down in an epic defeat and there's nothing we can do about it. :(

Rick Ballard

LTL,

1. I am not a "master of demographics". I can handle tables of numbers and do the basic arithmetic required to verify or falsify conclusions reached by manipulation via over or under sampling on the basis of age, sex and race based upon Census data and the exit polling data used by almost all polling firms. Two of the three demographic attributes which I follow are immutable, the passage of time will move individuals through the age brackets and the relative size of age brackets will change due to fluctuations in the number of births, deaths and immigration.

2. McCormack is guilty of imputation of feelings based upon his own imagination of the thought processes of the "group" described. My imagination leads me to believe that, regardless of reality, people will not feel themselves to be members of the Presidential Parasite Party and will conclude Governor Romney was referring to the real parasites. IOW - reason will play as large a part in their decision making process as it did in their initial decision to be undecided after enduring four years of policy failure after policy failure.

Porchlight

long-time lurker,

So you want Romney, a Mormon, to imitate Paul Ryan, a Catholic, and talk more about how great Catholic charities and Catholic schools are, just in case some bishop out there might think R/R is worth an extra shoutout from the pulpit?

This seems rather parochial. The bishops aren't going to cave on HHS/Obamacare and Obama's abortion stance. And if Catholics haven't yet made their decision to vote against Obama - with everything they have in front of them now - then this minor stuff is not going to move the needle.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

--My imagination leads me to believe that, regardless of reality, people will not feel themselves to be members of the Presidential Parasite Party and will conclude Governor Romney was referring to the real parasites.--

Heh. Caught a snippet of the Fox business channel with one of the now ubiquitous billionaires whose claim was that Barry is good for Wall Street. Well, duh.

The clown also related how he told his 80 something mama on SS how she and her buds will need to get jobs according to Mitt's 47% rhetoric proving two things;
1. It appears to be Democratic billionaires who don't understand Mitt's reference, not little old ladies on SS and,
2. You have to be neither sensible nor smart to become a billionaire.

"DIck's constant response is: "You got that from some blogger".

Jane,

On catch up I have just gotten to your anger about the FWD&J double standard.

What immediately came to my mind in your defense was that episode a few weeks back, where in response to your telling Dick that he didn't know what he was talking about concerning The DNC Convention (since he admitted on the Show that he did not watch the DNC Convention) was Dick's rebuttal that he had previously seen more Conventions than you, therefore he doesn't need to watch them to know that he knows more about them than you ever will by watching them.

I do not know how to break through that veneer of stunning hubristic ignorance except by mocking him.

Cue bgates and Iowahawk for professional tips for that, but for starters, "Okay, I think I understand the ground rules now. Like the Conventions, Dick doesn't even have to watch them to pontificate about them and we take his word as Gospel, but I, being a Conservative, have to provide 2 sources for everything I say. Have I got that right?"

"And just for interest, what are the approved sources? NYTimes?, Dan Rather? Mike Barnicle? Hey, MSNBC wants to give Anthoney Weiner a new Show on MSNBC? Does he count? I'm dying to hear this."

Good luck.

Porchlight

daddy, I like your approach.

Jane, I do think it would be a nice little twist if you were to respond frequently to Dick's assertions with "Well, as a matter of fact, Dick, CBS reported just today that" and use whatever small nugget of truth that the alphabets let slip.

It'll drive him nuts.

Former SF official booked for child porn (09-20) 15:00 PDT SAN FRANCISCO -- Former city Human Rights Commissioner Larry Brinkin was booked Thursday morning into San Francisco County Jail on suspicion of distributing child pornography, according to the sheriff's department.

...

Brinkin, a 22-year veteran of the city's Human Rights Commission and a long-time gay rights advocate, had been out on bail since he was arrested in June. He was arrested after e-mail attachments allegedly containing child pornography were found on an America Online subscriber's account.

Some of the attachments appeared to show toddlers engaged in sex acts with men, authorities said.

Okay, as I remember it, it was Don Cathy -- who admittedly is the COO of the family owned Chick-Fil-A corporation -- who made the donations. According to Wikipedia, it was Cathy and the WinShape Foundation, the family's philanthropic organization, that did it.

LTL: You are aware, are you not, that it was Romney that was out front and went public with the assault on Catholics by the Administration first, long before the media or the public even knew there was a problem. He wrote a strongly worded op ed and has been the #1 supporter for the Bishops and Cardinal Dolan.

It isn't surprising that in the division of campaign labor, Ryan, as a Catholic, would have the lead role now. But make no mistake, this is an area that Romney has a personal stake in as a Mormon, since their charitable and church affiliated programs are every bit as much at stake as the Cathoic programs.

I watched the videos of both Romney's Miami rally and his Univision Q&A at the U. of Miami. Narc, your Miami crowd is crazy loud and really fired up for Mitt. The Univision Q&A seemed like the questions came straight from the Obama campaign or were media fed. He got lots of applause for different answers, but by no means the enthusiasm I saw going on at the rally. It was much more about how much are you going to give me and what do you dare take away that I already have.

Another Bob, 07:18 thanks for a powerful LUN. I recommend everyone read it.

"According to hagiography, Barack Obama was born to a hippy girl from an insignificant family and raised in poor circumstances, out of which he rose through brilliance. Yet his haughty demeanor, his stilted language when off the teleprompter, his cultural likes and dislikes, bespeak an upbringing in an environment at once so upscale and so leftist that it makes him almost a foreigner to ordinary Americans."

One of Mitt's best responses to a student who was worried she was going to lose all her freebies was that the best thing he could give her was the prospect (guarantee) of a good job when she graduates. It was hard to follow the tone of the questions since the Q&A was conducted in Spanish and the questions and answers were dubbed over in English for the video. Mitt had his son Craig, fluent in Spanish, at both events and translating for him. Made me wonder if there was some distrust that the translation given in Mitt's ear would somehow be flawed.

Yeah, thanks Another Bob.

"Obama had refused to release not only the birth certificate but his academic and medical records. He indirectly, and his partisans most directly, vilified as "birthers" those who asked for this personal information (a term made-to-order, implying racism, stupidity, and lower-class odors).

Nonetheless, by the spring of 2011, several state legislatures, including Indiana's and Louisiana's, had passed or were about to pass bills requiring any candidate for federal office to show the original or original copy of his birth certificate, and providing for forensic analyses of the documents. Obama's April 27 release amounts to what John Ehrlichman called a "modified limited hang out"—some information let out to relieve pressure for the release of more. Had Obama done nothing he might have been banned from the ballot in any number of states; had he delayed too long, any certificate he produced would have been subject to close scrutiny. After the disclosure, however, Democrats argued that any and all requests for Obama's personal information had now been shown to be, in the president's words, "a silly distraction.""
