Posted by: Vic We Have No Party at March 31, 2016 06:38 PM (vvmPQ)
Defunding universities requires eliminating both federal student loans and  bankruptcy protection for private student loans. 

As far as state universities are concerned, although they could have their public funding removed it would be far better for state governments to assert their power and take control of their state university systems from their current, incompetent administrations.

81 Yesterday, local news had on the middle of the night chalkings at the University of Michigan. One chalking said, " Stop Islam" and down the sidewalk was "Trump 2016". These were done on the diag, a crossroads of sorts of sidewalk that students use frequently to get from one building to another. So of course, the Detroit news stations were there to interview students. They went to every woman wearing a hajib of course. Most said they were "scared'. One did stomp her foot and said that "neither terrorists, or Donald Trump was going to define her religion". A group of Muslim students were shown crawling around with soapy buckets of water, scrubbing the offending chalk off the sidewalk. Because...the university's maintenance department only cleans off painted evils. (such as when Michigan State hoodlums come before the MSU/UM football game and paint a big green S on the diag, LOL). The university is investigating this chalking.....

94 >>> Defunding universities requires eliminating both federal student loans and bankruptcy protection for private student loans. ***** I'm 100% in favor of this. There is absolutely no reason or justification for 80% of the people going to college to ever be at a college, outside of working on the custodial or maintenance staff. There is even less justification for me to be subsidizing it or covering the defaults on the loans. You want to solve the "stop leaving food out for the cockroaches" problem of illegal immigration? Stop sending future baristas to daycare for 18- 25 year olds that accrue nothing but unfunded debt. I'm sick an tired of involuntarily co-signing notes for 25 year old children so that they can eventually graduate and demand more of my money and higher wages so that they can make their loan payments while not being subjected the the 3rd world humiliation of owning a smart phone that is more than a year old.

106 No, these inhabitants (I won't call them students) are doing their job. They got admitted under lower academic standards. The only reason to do that for a given group is because they have uses, other than academics, to the people handling admissions. Those uses are: terrorising the real students: and terrorising the non-Left faculty, staff, and administration. See also, Cornell 1968.

130 Here's where we are today. 2 of the top 20 best-selling books on Amazon.com last year are... adult coloring books. Now I like coloring as much as anyone, maybe more, but really? By age 20, they know Everything. Yeah, college kids have always been like that. They think they know it all. The problem is, that's always been true. Always. What's changed is that people are taking them seriously in this delusion now, instead of shaking their heads and hiding a grin, ignoring them and going on until they grow up.

Posted by: Christopher Taylor at March 31, 2016 02:10 PM (39g3+)

131 We laugh at them, and we should, but there is another lesson here. Liberals/leftists are disturbed people. They have psychological problems that go WAY beyond just having a different opinion on a subject. Think about it... If your 5 year old behaved like this ranting and raving every time there was a "micro aggression" you would explain to the child how they can't act out like that and certainly not for something so trivial. Yet, here are people of age at major universities and elsewhere literally doing just that.

180 Doctors require university degrees. Lawyers require university degrees. Hard sciences require university degrees. The end. Every other career knowledge can be better, faster, and far more inexpensively gained by getting an entry level job and working. Imagine that! People getting paid, supporting themselves, and gradually earning more throughout the course of their career and in proportion to their work ethic, ability, and contribution! All without a single line of government regulation, legislation, or tax dollar "invested"! You want to study 18th Century Transgender Interpretive Dance? Fine. Pay for it out of your own pocket. Universities want to teach 18th Century Transgender Interpretive Dance? Fine. Go fundraise for it or pay for it out of tuition fees and NOT sticking it in as core curriculum for another degree or demanding government funding. Enough of this bullshit. Unapologetic application of the most basic free market principles would simultaneously solve employment, education, immigration, and countless other political issues easily within 5 years. The only downside is that drooling imbeciles with giant holes in their ears and purple hair wouldn't be able to cite a degree on their Starbucks job application.

Posted by: the littl shyning man at March 31, 2016 07:30 PM (U6f54) Yes.... because everyone knows that if you make something against the law, there should NEVER be any punishment involved in breaking said law! that's just... barbaric!

224 Doctors require university degrees. Lawyers require university degrees. Hard sciences require university degrees. The end.

Every other career knowledge can be better, faster, and far more inexpensively gained by getting an entry level job and working. Imagine that! People getting paid, supporting themselves, and gradually earning more throughout the course of their career and in proportion to their work ethic, ability, and contribution! All without a single line of government regulation, legislation, or tax dollar "invested"!

You want to study 18th Century Transgender Interpretive Dance? Fine. Pay for it out of your own pocket. Universities want to teach 18th Century Transgender Interpretive Dance? Fine. Go fundraise for it or pay for it out of tuition fees and NOT sticking it in as core curriculum for another degree or demanding government funding.

Enough of this bullshit. Unapologetic application of the most basic free market principles would simultaneously solve employment, education, immigration, and countless other political issues easily within 5 years. The only downside is that drooling imbeciles with giant holes in their ears and purple hair wouldn't be able to cite a degree on their Starbucks job application.

Amen and that goes double for education majors... have tests to prove the prospective teachers know the subject matter they would be teaching and put them to work. There is no sense in spending the money college costs to be indoctrinated into liberalism and still not know the material you are supposed to teach others.

They will coodinate by using Twitter to elect people who will seize your bank accounts, 401K, and property under the guise of racism, fairness, and miscellaneous other stupidity until you own nothing. Then you will watch as they redistribute the assets it took you a lifetime to earn amongst themselves and consume it all within an unfathomable short span of time, all the while preaching to each other about their commitment to "conservation", "caring", and "responsibility". They will replace you in your work with the next generation of university graduates who have the latest set of acroyms, initials, and other made up credentials (but absolutely zero experience or ability to produce results) because they will be "better qualified". With all your property, accumulated wealth, and assets, seized, your job redistributed, you will have no alternative but to sign up for their EBT and healthcare programs. There you will be relegated the the death panels so that other, more entitled , more compliant people are deemed more in need and society will benefit more from serving can have access to the limited amount of services available. After all, you came from a privileged class that subjugated and fed off of those you kept under your foot for generations. You owe them.

273 Friend teaches foreign policy/defense classes at a local univ. (big state school). He's finally being forced out (just a guest prof, no tenure) by the idiot freaks of the department there, asked if I want to teach one class next month (in past years I've usually done it, talk to them about things I was involved in, given them some perspective on Congress and foreign policy, etc.). Really not sure I want to even bother. In past years almost the only kids with any clue were young military vets - they were completely different than the others, far more worldly (well duh). You wouldn't believe the stories - students come to his office hours, and furtively tell him he's the first real teacher they've had (i.e. knows his stuff and teaches, doesn't preach) - these are seniors, and grad students. He told me to come in and just let the nukes fly this time, as of course he has FIGMO about the situation. But I'm so discouraged by the state of things, not sure I'm even up to it. Though it would be funny to outline how Congress has surrendered its limited influence on foreign policy, and highlight some examples of the disasters of the current admin. and the Dems current prez front-runner.

317 Over the past three years, Venezuelans have seen shortages of food, water, toilet paper and medicine. In some areas of the country, electricity has been curtailed. Now, the lights may go out in the nation's capital. A prolonged drought blamed on the El Nino weather system has dropped water levels to a critical threshold at the Guri Dam, the hydroelectric plant that supplies Caracas with most of its electricity. http://goo.gl/GF0NmR

320 >>> Amen and that goes double for education majors... have tests to prove the prospective teachers know the subject matter they would be teaching and put them to work. There is no sense in spending the money college costs to be indoctrinated into liberalism and still not know the material you are supposed to teach others. **** I'm with you in principle but not in application. Personally, I think all education should be paid for by the consumer directly but I concede that doing away with public primary education would be a bridge too far for the short term. Again, basic free market provides a simple solution. Vouchers. Parents pick their teachers and schools. Your kid isn't getting the education they deserve? Take them and the voucher somewhere else. No need to mess with unions, school boards, or any of the other ridiculous bureaucracy. There will be no money left for the shit schools or teachers and the good schools and teachers will be flush with cash. Let them whine about tenure all they want to on no paycheck and no students. I, along with all the other people who don't have children, will be taking my voucher and writing it off as a tax deduction. I'll be generous, for now, and let you borrow my money for 12 months, interest free to support your kid's education. On April 15th, I get it all back out of your pocket.

And there is something to beards and ethnic heritage that probably accounts for that particular signature item. But abasing yourself before racist totalitarian criminals is now OK for an American president. And you know, given the electorate, and the state of the institutions, best traditions, and rule of law - that sounds about right.

A Corpoelec spokesperson declined comment, saying no one knowledgeable was available to talk because of the reduced hours put in place at government offices to conserve energy. Maduro’s ruling socialist party has in the past blamed the water and electricity shortages on a combination of El Nino and “sabotage” by political foes I'm surprised they didn't blame it on global warming caused by the United States.

Posted by: weft cut-loop at March 31, 2016 08:17 PM (A/3fN) "

I didn't say "outside country." Japanese was one of my minors during undergrad. Gaijin is literally the kanji for 'outside' and the kanji for 'person.' Yes, 'gaikokujin' is more formal, and gaijin can certainly be used pejoratively. But we're also talking about a country where it's impolite to call someone by their first name. I certainly don't put it on the same level as ethnic slurs.

I've been imbibing Japanese culture since I was a toddler, so trust me, I know that they can be intensely xenophobic and racist. Most of their characterizations of black people are so bad that they'd be seen as racist even in the Jim Crow South. And they're not very fond of the Chinese or Koreans, either. But I don't think gaijin is inherently offensive, and it can be used as a term of endearment or just a neutral word for 'foreigner.' And I think they tend to have an ambivalent attitude about Americans - most of them like our culture and our country, but they also have an upbringing that inculcates a sense of Japanese superiority over all others. I mean, Shinto mythology pretty much says that Japan is the center of the universe and other countries just aren't worth a damn.

504 My impression: The American invasion of the Philippines was unnecessary, and the occupation was ugly and violent. Then the Japanese invaded and taught the Pinoys that there were worse horrors than Americans floating the Pacific. As far as "kicking the Americans out", I dunno. I thought the Americans left on their own because, with an occupied Japan, there just wasn't much point in occupying Luzon anymore.

510 I remember that commenter at HA. Never saw that particular idiocy, though. But sounds like he's part of a rich tradition of clueless people who - incorrectly - think there is any place on earth less racist than the US. I recall with enduring disbelief a friend who returned from the Peace Corps (often a fatal experience for common sense on such things, I've observed) and grad "education" in "education" to let us know that India's class structure was less rigid and toxic than America's. No, I'm not kidding. There was a great, now-depressing quote from an astute British observer in the US (post-war I think, cannot recall name) that went something like "in the US, the term and concept of 'racist' are more important and more serious as a negative than in any other society in the world". No need to break the news that, thanks to familiar forces and pathologies now disfiguring the country, the term "racist" is now less meaningful or serious in the US than in most places on earth. A clean inversion. A term, and for the most part concept, I now instantly and categorically reject as much as I would anything like space aliens and black magic. The residue of meaning left in "racist" is, more or less, "non-racist", and the old ruined term now applies almost exclusively to those who wield it as one of their War Clubs of Stupid.

554 ...The typhoon was a volcano named Pinatubo... US military was unpopular there also. When the base was destroyed the Philippine Government couldn't allow it to be rebuilt. Times were good and China wasn't threatening. There was a documentary about the group monitoring the eruption. Some guy they didn't interview was always being quoted by the people they did interview. A General was in charge and he came across as a poor leader. The quoted guy used his wit to save their asses. Otherwise they would have been buried under pyroclastic flows.

560 Since we're all free-range on this thread, and discussion drifted to WWII. My maternal grandfather served in both theatres. Poor bastard was in the Philippines when the unpleasantness began, but eventually made it to Europe. I've read his letters to his mother, my great grandmother....amazing for a man with a fourth grade education, the sort of insight he had. He was on his first amphibious assault - location redacted by the censor - and he was just sort of walking from the edge of the shore inland, when a japanese popped up out of nowhere, put a pistol right up against his helmet, and pulled the trigger. The shock knocked him unconscious - the round penetrated his helmet and the liner, but lacked enough oomph (it was probably the angle) to do much more than cut his scalp wide open. In that moment, he said he realized he was going to die, and he said afterward, he'd lost all fear of the inevitable. He was, evidently, something of a berserker until he got to Europe.

600 "Lost his brother. They had a battle-flag, a sword, and a skull" Much the same as my own uncle. Never claimed to hate the Japanese in later years but the stories of thw what the G.I.s and Japanese would do to each other in the process of fighting was something else. He an 18 year old kid and all at the time. He too brought back a battle flag with something inscribed on it. Maybe it's the names of the troop like yours but we've often thought about having it translated to find out. Came back with an Arisaka too that he said he pulled from a Japanese solider that he personally killed.

I just re-read Fred Lieb's book about his life in baseball. He talks about the trip he took to Japan (in 1933, IIRC) with an American all-star team, and how beloved the players were in Japan. Less than a decade later, our countries were embroiled in some of the most brutal fighting ever. Funny how quick things can change.

Speaking of WW2 and baseball, when some American soldiers would shout "To hell with Hirohito!" at Japanese soldiers, it was reported that some of the Japanese soldiers responded with "To hell with Babe Ruth!"

630 Any theocracy has the problem that the most holy man (or woman) wins - and the most holy man is, as CS Lewis noted on several occasions, almost always the most evil man. Think, SJWs... Christianity has historically solved the problem in two ways of which I am aware. One is the Byzantine model, where the Emperor orders the priests about and sends the most holy men into monasteries (this is also the Anglican model, and the Russian). The other is the Roman Catholic model, where the Pope stays in Rome and the kings keep (an uneasy) balance with the Pope's emissaries.

Just read a Stengel biography last year. One of the real all-time characters in baseball history, an innovator and a terrific manager. But even the legends have bad games - Stengel's mismanaging of Game 7 in the 1960 WS is mind boggling when you consider how strategically solid he usually was.

That Romanian...he hated Germans almost as much as he hated Russians. He described the way they'd throw them into the battle to cover wehrmacht withdrawals, armed with only a few mg's and maybe, if they were really lucky, anti-aircraft guns depressed to fire at ground level. And the cold, he said, was unbelievable.

Anatoli Davidovitch, one of my chums, was a Leningrad veteran. he described the starvation rations of sawdust and burnt wheat salvaged from under the floorboards of the distilleries made into less than 300 gram loaves of bread that they were expected to survive on. He talked about the first time he ate rat, and how grateful he was for a bit of meat. He described living in a cellar and watching the woman next door, with two sons. Gradually, one of the sons stopped losing weight while she and the other began to resemble a skeleton. His mother was starving herself and the older son to save the younger. He described going into battle his first time at 17, armed with a spoon and nothing else. He talked about seeing his officers machine-gunning their own men. He described fighting hand-to-hand with a 10 or 12 year old boy who reminded him of his kid brother, and of killing this child with an entrenching tool. He was always hungry, always cold, always afraid. Said vodka and benzedrine were the only things that ever seemed to make it through to his unit - he was a sturmovic. He described the hail of rocket fire from retreating germans, the way they'd leave a trail of bodies everywhere they went, and how there was nothing he could do to help any of it. And he talked, absently, of his entry to Berlin and what happened there. Said he didn't rape or murder civilians, but that he did nothing to stop those who did.

712 You really think a gargantuan government program with no future was the apex moment for the West? Posted by: just no at March 31, 2016 10:09 PM (y2JGC) Kennedy's goal of putting a man on the moon in 10 years was audacious. It was very ambitious, and most were sceptical. Yet they staffed a government agency with intelligent engineers, brave pilots, and managers with goals. They met goals, kept track of what worked and what didn't. They achieved their goals, albeit at a cost of several good men. Less than 10 years, man on the moon. A great human achievement, not just a governmental one. If only all the rest of government programs kept what worked and scuttled what doesn't, made goals and achieved them.

Like many evangelists, Luther got ticked off when the Jews wouldn't abandon their old, dusty religion for his obviously superior one. He went from basically thinking "Jews are just embryonic Christians" to "Jews are stubborn snakes in the grass that need to be rooted out."

Something similar happened in, oh, just about every other European country.

Right now your  government betters are developing a Congressionally-mandated 18-billion dollar launcher (that should cost 3 billion, if it wasn't a pointless make-work project) that has funding to actually launch once every two years, starting sometime in the 2020s.

Berlin, he dives into a cellar of a ruined house, ppsh in hand, and finds a volksturm kid in there. They look at each other for a moment - he said he had the drop on the kid, and could have killed him, but took pity on him, because the boy was so scared at seeing a Russian he burst into tears. He lowered his weapon, and they sat across from each other for a while without talking or moving. "Ne strelyat?" the kid asked? "Nyet," he answered. He smoked a cigarette then passed another to the kid, who took it, but coughed and choked and he laughed. They shared his tin of pork in silence and then the kid fell asleep and so did he. When he woke, the kid was gone. he said that not killing him was the only decent thing he'd done in the war.

Some of those ideas are just hilarious. There's a Disney produced film about the "highways of tomorrow." One feature was that we were going to be able to tunnel through mountains in real time instead of having to dynamite them, using trucks with nuclear reactors strapped to the front.

Not entirely.  There's some theories about bending space that are credible enough that NASA is looking into them.  The upside of it as a propulsion method is that you don't have nasty relativistic effects.  The downside is that we might (or might not) need a negative-mass particle...  which is also theoretically possible, but out of reach for now.

968 The labs spent a great deal of the last few decades making our nukes (and others') "safe" (love that) - PALs, safeties, insensitive high explosives, etc. Things to prevent accidental OR unauthorized detonations. Not sure about safety features on the various Broken Arrow crashes/mishaps, earlier. But recall they told the engineer (think he passed away in the last 2 years) for the Hiroshima mission, the day before, that he would have to arm the thing in flight instead of pre-flight, as there was uneasiness in the brass about Tinian being suddenly bye-bye in the event of a crash. I think being involved with the nuke testing program in the 50s/early 60s had to rank as one of the best jobs ever. Have an idea? Let's blow it up! With a nuke! Money - no problem. Just think - unlimited funds, cutting edge science and engineering, world travel, tropical and desert locales, vital national mission - and you get to blow shit up. Heaven on earth.
