The Morning Rant: J.V. Edition

punk-monkey.jpg

I wonder if the staff of that newspaper needs some lessons in poo-flinging, because I am just the monkey to do it!

Duke Professor Bars Student Newspaper Staff from Enrolling in Her Course

It is said the "sunlight is the best disinfectant." Clearly not at Duke, where a pompous ass of an economics professor has quite publicly proven her stupidity, parochialism, insularity, and ignorance of the proper function of academia.

“Anyone who is on the staff of The Chronicle is not permitted to take this class,” Hughes’ syllabus for her “Inside Hedge Funds” course reads. Students at the Chronicle, the student newspaper at Duke University, got ahold of the syllabus according to a report that was published on Monday,

“Audio recordings of this class are not permitted and students will be asked to keep the information shared by some of our guest speakers confidential,” the full quote reads. “Anyone who is on the staff of the Chronicle is not permitted to take this class. Please honor this in order that we can continue to get high quality visitors and information.”

Does professor Hughes really believe that some hedge fund manager is going to whisper the secrets of the financial universe to her and her class of undergraduates? Is her knowledge of the topic so profound that it must be zealously guarded from...uh...who is it being guarded from?

When I was 18 and a callow youth I used to be impressed by professors. I was disabused of that notion rather quickly, and in the intervening years nothing has happened to change my opinion of academics; that they are, in the main, arrogant, narcissistic asses whose primary goal is to impress children.

Duke's motto is "Eruditio et Religio,"...Learning and Religion.

Professor Hughes got the "religion" part right...the religion of academia.

******



An epidemic of guns? What does that even mean?

So we are to ignore the fact that homicides are on a long-term downtrend in spite of a huge increase in the number of guns owned by Americans? And just send the cops to random homes, break down the doors and confiscate whatever weapons they find? Sounds like a plan.

But let's look at the reality. A small number of gun owners will fight. And that means dead cops and dead gun owners. My guess is that the resulting carnage will result in a huge increase in gun homicides, but that's sort of the plan, isn't it?

******



The hatred of Western culture is so deeply seated in the progressive mind that they are willing to destroy themselves in service of the larger goal of the destruction of the West. Amazing.

If he pulls out at any time before the election his name will still be on the ballot. If he wins after pulling out the race is considered void and there will be a new election.

146 With no end in sight for America's gun epidemic, it may be time to consider a radical approach: seizing millions of weapons from law abiding citizens.


The operative phrase being "law abiding." Seize them from the criminals who shoot each other every night with illegally-acquired weapons, the ones who plump up our murder statistics. The criminals are easy to find; just go to your local ghetto and look for the gangbanger uniform. Seize their guns - if you've got the balls.

147 Without going into what a badass I am, and how I'd start a militia if gun confiscation actually came about, what if I just said "no"?

First, if you do a buyback, even a mandatory buyback, I'm not showing up. I live in Texas, so my guns aren't registered anywhere. So you're not going to know.

Second, actually, I might show up. I'd bring the .22 I bought for $99 and request many times its actual value. Then I'd take that money and go buy more guns. Thanks!

Third, if you try confiscation and come to my house asking for my arsenal, I'm going to point at the Constitution hanging on the wall next to the door, say "no", and shut the door in your face. Are you willing to shoot me? Are you willing to shoot in front of my kids? Are you willing to do that to millions of Americans who don't agree with your views? That'll be a real hit.

Fourth, that situation actually won't happen. I am a commander in the National Guard, so I'd be among those who'd be sending to knock on those doors.

149 Ironic, considering Mattel used to make wonderful toy guns, modeled on the real thing. In fact their Shootin' Shell pistols worked on the same principle as real guns: a cartridge, a bullet nose, and a firing cap. When the hammer fell, the gun made a sharp report (with even a tinge of neat-smelling smoke), and the plastic bullet zoomed out of the spring-loaded cartridge and put some kid's eye out. Remember those good old days, Horde?

The House sought to unseat Adam Clayton Powell; the Supreme Court found for Powell (there was nothing extra-constitutional in his behavior, so they could find no justification for denying the expressed will of the electorate etc.), and I think that case was considered when Harry Reid wanted to unseat (or prepare to unseat) someone, don't recall who.

The Four Seasons Hotel is on the Top Four Floors of Mandalay Bay.

Supposedly Prince Talal was in LV the night Paddock was taken down. Some say he was gambling in a nearby casino and video shows him being walked out by his armed body guards when shooting starts next door. (I saw purported video on Youtube but I couldn't recognize it as Talal, just 5 guys with long guns and a middle eastern looking civilian walking through a casino.)

Notice a month later Talal is under arrest in SA.

There could be more going on with LV than just Paddock.

224 Moore is Bannon's guy, more than he's Trump's.

Mitch was in cahoots with the WaPo outing of Moore. Even Chuck Todd picked up on this, as allies of Mitch decried Moore within the first hour of the WaPo story. Mitch is doing this as his response to Bannon's declaration of war on Mitch and the GOPe Senate.

I expect no more women to come forth, and little new facts to come out. We may find a money trail but I'd expect that it's been deeply buried. So the story will just hang.

Moore won't drop out -- he's ornery -- and he'll probably win the election. Mitch can't not seat him (so sayeth SCOTUS), but he can press a vote to expel him with the support of the Ds and the GOPe in the Senate.

If Mitch does so he'll clearly be defying the electoral will of the voters of Alabama. A point Bannon will hit with salvo after salvo.

The guys at the bottom, the vast majority of service members, and the most well-armed, are always going to be people of the right. They are not going to confiscate guns, EVER, and officers who value their own lives would be wise to remember that, should some goofy unconstitutional order ever come rolling down the pipe.

The guys at the bottom, the vast majority of service members, and the most well-armed, are always going to be people of the right. They are not going to confiscate guns, EVER, and officers who value their own lives would be wise to remember that, should some goofy unconstitutional order ever come rolling down the pipe.

Part of the idea is to get African countries to reject them. They feel rejected here - and they are, because the gangbangers contribute nothing and cause a lot of problems. They attribute their rejection to racism, but when people just like them (actually even darker, for the most part) ALSO reject them, because of their behavior, they may just have a teachable moment.

315 CBD,
Sorry to hear about your experience in higher ed with your professors. However, as someone who was a consumer and then currently as a prof, your experience is not universal. If I cared to, I could go on and on about the students, their morals, and their behavior.

Just like other people, professors vary in their approaches, their humanity, their wisdom, and their skills.

There is a reason that most of the really bad behavior and poor judgment in academia (apart from classroom rules) comes from the adjunct/temporary pool just as some contractors tend to be the one to misbehave in the military/national security field. They were screened out by somebody for full time status but for temps, the need is just to be there as a warm body.

Most of the professors are reluctant to allow recordings for several reasons--it is easy to take out of context, some organized campus groups such as frats and sororities distribute them among the members to avoid class, and it can involve violations of intellectual property which is all the professor has (same thing as bootlegging a musician). It also leads to tuning out by some students.

I allow audio recording in my classroom, probably against my better judgment, because I give essay tests that require students to problem solve and I change these every semester. I would not allow and do not allow video as it creates privacy issues as classrooms are not really public spaces--imagine if you were a student who asked a dumb question in class and it was distributed via social media. Audio would be bad enough but video would be permanent.

Anyone who showed up with Google glasses would be shown the door. Videoing people surreptitiously is generally a bad idea in a class period. To hide doing it also distracts the student from active participation in the classroom.

If you choose to do so, you can minimize your exposure to the hacks in academia just like in real life. It requires research on the student's part and discussions with other students. Ask senior students in the program--most will spill their guts for beer and pizza and dish on profs-good and bad Professors will vary in their approaches and purposes in the classroom and a bit of research into a professor can yield quite a bit of useful information about what your classroom experience is likely to be.

Some profs like acolytes, some play devil's advocate, some play the authoritarian, some play the sage on the stage, some play the fool, some like to buddy up with students, some view students as distractions from their research, a few are sociopaths, and some view their job as to cull out the weak and unworthy or the "bad thinkers". You find the same types teaching in your local middle and high schools as well.

Most of us in academia represent a mix of the above roles and a few are probably more pure in type. Nevertheless, I find little resemblance in my experiences as a student at a number of universities to what you present above.

In my humble experience, the worst experiences as a student personally were generally with those who came from elite school backgrounds who felt diminished by teaching at a not so elite school and lack any experiences outside of academia. Ironically, some of the leading lights in the profession at many of those schools were some of the most kind, thoughtful, and helpful within the profession regardless of their personal ideologies. To them, the ideas and truth are what matter, not so much the status climbing virtue signalling.

This. Also, early on in 39-40, the men were most often separated from the women and children, and either sent to work details in Germany, or shot right there. The women thought they had a chance to save their children by aquiescing. It was later that everyone was herded into the cars, but by this time, they had been starved and riddled with disease for so long that they were too weak to do anything. The Ghetto uprising was a last valiant effort as a group. The few that survived that went to the forests to join Resistance groups. But there weren't many left.

328 The lowland scots who fought the Romans and then the anglo-saxons for hundreds upon hundreds of years had a big contingent sent to colonize Ulster, where they fought the Irish. A lot came here, skirted around the already established Germans who were taking up space around philadelphia and west/south, and headed inland. These Scots-Irish are a prickly bunch, represent most of our war heros, and have a natural hatred of goverment. They couldn't even manage a religion with many 'requirements.' As much as I don't like Jim Webb, his book "born fighting" is pretty good up to a point.

Are you serious? If I'm a professor, the ONLY reason I don't want my lectures recorded is because I know I'm crossing the line between the logically and academically defensible and indefensible. Because I know I would be forced to provide "context" to statements where there actually was no contextual loss, and I would be driven further into chaos. Recording college courses is a necessary first step in wiping out leftist indoctrination where there should be factual learning. Funny how it's only those otherwise worthless liberal arts courses that need to be hidden from the public view. If it's a public institution it should ALL be public access and public record regardless of what the professors want to keep hidden.

Posted by: MSTisdale at November 14, 2017 12:33 PM (xHVD5)

368 Some profs like acolytes, some play devil's advocate, some play the authoritarian, some play the sage on the stage, some play the fool, some like to buddy up with students, some view students as distractions from their research, a few are sociopaths, and some view their job as to cull out the weak and unworthy or the "bad thinkers". You find the same types teaching in your local middle and high schools as well.


I had a different approach. I viewed my job as a travel guide, pointing out features of interest for later study (because that's where students actually learn things), showing the inter-relationships of the various ideas, and providing a verbal outline that subordinated lesser ideas to greater ones (pet peeve: when lecturers present all ideas as equally important, the intellectual equivalent of flat-filing).

But all of that was strictly as an intro, the subliminal message being "But to learn it you have to take this travel guide, go home/to the library and get on top of this stuff."

399 I read an interesting piece over at Jews for the Preservation of Firearm Ownership that theorized why Jews in general were so compliant to the Nazis.

In general, for hundreds of years the Jewish Diaspora had existed with fairly frequent pogroms and other violence and humiliation. They had adapted by passivity and had managed to survive fairly well. When the Nazis came along there was no comprehension that this was fundamentally different. That the goal was extermination.

The way the Holocaust unfolded the ingrained passivity and hopefulness combined with an inability to comprehend that level of evil combined with folks being generally unarmed and a non militaristic culture sealed their fate. The Warsaw ghetto allowed enough time combined with knowledge and insight into the Nazis for a resistance to develop.

And yet, to this day Jewish progressive culture failed to learn from those terrible lessons about an unarmed populace and and all powerful state.

Exactly right. It's like buying a book: read it, don't read it. Whatever.

Some faculty (usually in the arts) used to agonize over slacking students. Not me. I used to joke, somebody's got to make those lattes - thank you for volunteering. If you can ace this course without attending lecture or doing the reading, I salute you.

My perspective was that the students were adults, and could make their own decisions. I enjoyed teaching, and tried to do a good job, but it was maybe 10% of my job. Running a research group, hustling grant money, publishing, giving seminars, organizing symposia, etc. was my main focus.

Timmy's decided to fart around? Why would I worry? Is he worried that I won't get a grant renewed and will have to fire some postdocs? No. Of course not. He's got his concerns, I've got mine. As long as I'm doing a good job teaching, I figure I've held up my end of the deal vis a vis him.

of that 6.6K, Democrat hellhole Chicago alone accounts for about 660 at current run rate
1.6K are domestic violence - we got laws for that, enforce them harshly

Since the Left usually regards even the most rudimentary rules of modesty for prom dresses or other attire (minimum skirt length, no cleavage, no bare midriffs, etc.) at Catholic or other Christian schools as an intolerable infringement on female empowerment, I'm presuming you're being sarcastic.

475 So basically Hijab Barbie is saying to little Muslim girls that they should all aspire to wearing the Hijab when they grow up. Sounds very progressively feminist, right?

Also, I hate when companies virtue-signal as a fig leaf for making moolah $$$$. There are a billion Muslims on the planet, that = lots of dolls.

In the 70's, guys drove their trucks to school and parked them in the school lot. They all had gun racks behind the driver and they all had at least one on the rack. Nobody every thought a thing about it.

They still have rifle ranges in the basements of the high schools here. At least the schools that were here then. Some still use them for archery. I don't think they still use the air rifles at the schools, but they do offer rifle team, and I think they practice at a local range.

It is more, and worse, than that. Sessions is an old school Senator and a "southern gentleman" type. And the Demunists have shown that they will arbitrarily change rules any time it suits them. I hate to say it, but Sessions needs to be replaced by someone who knows how to fight back.

He can't (well legally he can) fire Mueller but he can fire this POS he put in as AG and get someone more eager to put some Democrats on the fire and fire some of the liberals at the DOJ.

That gets my vote. And he needs to withdraw his Nominee for DHS.

She's already stated she's for letting more in and legalizing the ones here. Nothing about the wall though.

Trump better watch out. That's the main plank that got him elected. Forget about the GOPe dragging their feet, if Trump looks weak about illegals he's not serving another term.

It would be a lot like the Obama years. Lots of "cunning plots" to get guns to be less popular, tricky use of agencies to harm gun dealerships, pissant rules about lead and such to make guns difficult to even use, etc. No outright bans, but plenty of nibbling on the edges and discomfort for gun owners.

Its not impossible that her extremist radical hard left psycho Supreme Court pick (s) would probably end up reversing previous established law and stating that owning a gun is not an individual right, though.

Asshole accidentally kills an o!d prospecter and tries to blame it on the kid. I say it's old school because the asshole strips the kid naked so he'll die of exposure but doesn't butt fvck him. It's about survival in the desert, the difference between right and wrong, between truth and lies. You know, hate speech.

been shooting a lot of bullets lately, hundreds of rounds, large
magazines," Flint said. "We made it aware that this guy is crazy and

The thing that amazes me is the level of delusion that people have regarding the effectiveness and strength of the modern state. I would argue in some ways the modern state is weaker than the Empire the colonists rebelled against 240 years ago. The modern state depends heavily on a complex military and intelligence apparatus that would be heavily compromised if even just 5% of it were to become moles. US infrastructure is in terrible shape, and a few well placed guerilla strikes would cause complete and total chaos and disruption of the power grid, food and gas transportation, and commerce. Thousands upon thousands of miles of bridges and railways which would need to be secured by a military whose combat troops number in the hundreds of thousands.

Then there's the question of credit and financing for some sort of counter-rebellion campaign and the interests of foreign powers. You think China and Russia wouldn't be all over funding revolutionaries under the table while they got busy in eastern Europe and the South China Sea? How many thousands of miles of unguarded coast are there?

Hundreds of millions of guns, a military whose grunt force is largely right-leaning, a massive middle part of the country (the bread basket and massive chunk of land crisscrossed by vulnerable interstate roads, bridges, and railways), and a government that is so inefficient it can't even find time to repair the interstate or seal our southern border let alone our coasts.

The left is, pardon my political incorrectness, doorknob-lickingly retarded if they think an outright revolution would go in their favor.

I think it's happening but not as fast as I would like and certainly it isn't being written about it as much in the media. But what Sessions is doing right now is undoing the unlawful practices of the last 8 years by following the law and rules that the DOJ was always bound by pre-Obama.

As for things happening, it really isn't getting much press but the downfall of the Podesta Group, one of if not the biggest Democrat lobbying and power bases in DC is dead and John Podesta is still under investigation. That will do enormous damage to the left going forward.

Fusion GPS has been exposed as a corrupt manufacturer of fake news with ties to the left and to the media. They are also under investigation and for all intents finished even if they don't go to jail which is a real possibility.

And I do believe that in addition to the 27 leak investigations that Sessions mentioned today their are indeed ongoing investigations into Uranium One and lots of things the Clintons and others were doing. It will take time for the details to come out cause Sessions seems to run a tight ship but I can wait.

673 Let me amend, Crest/Banner of the Stars is more space opera. Starts with a boy named Jinto who sees his homeworld conquered by the Abh. His father was the planet's president and many think what he did was a betrayal because he surrendered instead of sacrificing people in a lost cause. Jinto becomes Abh royalty and is shipped off to school because the Abh believe one must serve. So after completing his schooling Jinto joins the space forces to start life as a supply officer.

And he finally meets an Abh when one of their patrol ships picks him up to ferry Jinto back to the capitol to finish his schooling. Her name is Lafiel who is about his age with flowing waist length blue hair, delicately pointed ears, expressive brown eyes, and is quite sure of herself.

685 I've said this before but claims that the left would fare so poorly if a revolution took place remind me of the confidence of the south during the civil war. Better soldiers, better guns, better morale. They won and won their earliest battles. They lost the war.

Its not the quality of soldiers, its the ability to fight that matters. the cities absolutely control distribution and shipping, internet, just about everything in his nation. Yes, we can grow food in rural areas but how are we gonna get it anywhere but locally?

The military may be made up of mostly rural types but they're taught to obey commands and if you think somehow the soldiers of the military are going to en masse turn against their officers and commander in chief, you don't know how it all works. If you think cops won't do what they're told you don't know how the world works.

When it comes down to keeping my job - and staying out of prison - or doing what I'm told, most people pick that second option and justify it in their heads somehow. If you think a nation trained for generations that dying for anything is stupid and that nothing is worth dying for will somehow step up and fight and die for freedom, you are a fool.

Most of them would, like the cowards they are, shrink away if shots started getting fired and people stopped thinking the law would protect them.

Cities would collapse into ethnic strife and chaos. Hell, LA is already a bubbling cauldron with the Aztlan types trying to ethnically cleanse the blacks. Now imagine that kind of hostility once the stores started running empty or worse, food stamps stopped being paid out.

702 RE: Boston Globe call for authoritarian gun confiscation.

Reality in tweet form:

2015: US 4th in OECD nations in homicides/100K pop. Australia = 16th. Remove stats of 4 top homicide/100K US cities: St. Louis, Detroit, New Orleans, Baltimore (*all having *strict* gun control*) - US is 33 out of the 34 OECD. Ban murdering-monsters - not guns: Problem solved.

2016: Chicago murders it's way into the top 4 Murder-Cities (the real "gun-crime") in US.

If we were rid of just those 4 cities and the mentality that runs them, Only Luxembourg would be less murderous/violent and then only by a fraction of 1/100K population.

"Gun Violence" is the Big-Lie of the anti-America Left. Wait for it, the McCain-wing of the GOP (RINOs) will be tacit supporters of gun confiscation if/when Left regains power.

When my girls were younger it didn't matter what the dolls wore,
naked Barbies everywhere and those damn little shoes hurt when you
stepped on them.

My family used to use the dolls as sacrifices in various historical reenactments. Barbie on fire in the kiddie pool in a vaguely 'Viking' ceremony. I think they gave up trying to get Ken dolls, and everything burned, blown up, or slung in the trebuchet were barbies. Youngest kidlet tells the story of her brother and his friends hanging the dolls on the trees and bushes for Halloween.

Do you really think you're going to head out there to brave a mob?

I'm convinced the only reason she doesn't get shouted down like Milo or Shapiro is because she has that "I was for Bernie, voted for Jill Stein" mantra going and it protects her. I'm starting to doubt it's true, though. She ripped into the overgrown government bureaucracy and defended capitalism. And she's too smart not to know that those are the last things Sanders and Stein stand for.

In order to get food and resources into cities, the railway card and trucks still have to travel on the interstate and railway systems. Cities are powered by power plants, lines, and substations. Police aren't military (yet). I don't think beat cops will be doing their jobs with any regularity in the hypothetical we're supposing (revolution/ at least partial breakdown of order).

I get your point about the military, perhaps I was being too charitable. Even assuming a minute number of them misbehave in any way, it takes a large psychological/morale toll to fire on your fellow citizens. And a few hundred thousand soldiers to police a nation-state where a good chunk of the population is rebelling? Seems a fat chance they'd be successful.

Again, I'm assuming in this hypothetical that a solid chunk of people, 30% are outright trying to bring about some kind of revolution.

Regarding the South- I think they may have won had they refrained from attacking at all. Their adventures in the north leading to Gettysburg were a mistake.

750 Remember, the south was largely rural and largely food-producing. They were starved out. How on earth could this happen? The north blockaded the ports. Fields are easy to burn and destroy. Ports are a lot harder to take over. You have to conquer a city and control the airspace and waterways. Easy to do if you control the military and the city already. Not so easy for a rebellion to do.

Rebellions almost always fail without outside assistance. If they're left totally local and internal, they almost always fall apart.
