Science Says Liberal Women Are Nuts

Science Says Liberal Women Are Nuts –A 2020 Pew Research study has revealed that over half of white, liberal women have been diagnosed with a mental health condition at some point. 

Now, some might say that this study is a ploy to maintain the patriarchy based on perpetuating ancient and demeaning stereotypes.

We respond with but one word.

Science.

That’s right. Science has spoken. This must be accepted.

Granted, a white, liberal woman might not accept this unfortunate truth.

But then, she’s very likely crazy.

Fortunately, there is a cure. Stop being liberal. Turn off The View. Stop watching MSNBC. Cancel The Handmaid’s Tale. Delete your Facebook account.

You’ll return to sanity and be much, much happier.

Oregon Libraries Keeping Seuss

Oregon Libraries Keeping Seuss — Bob Small of Swarthmore sent us this link about how libraries in Oregon are dealing with the bizarre decision by Dr. Seuss Enterprises to stop publication of six classic titles due to anti-intellecutal and arrogant wokeness.

The libraries — believe it or not — plan to keep them on the shelves until it is time to remove them due to well-established criteria i.e. the books become worn or are no longer checked out.

So kudos to the libraries for not caving into virtue signaling hypocrites.

St Joe Cowards Persecute Greg Manco

St Joe Cowards Persecute Greg Manco — Bob Small of Swarthmore sent us this link to a Philadelphia Weekly article about the plight of St. Joseph University math teacher Greg Manco.

Manco, who had taught at the school for 17 years, published this tweet on Feb. 17 questioning the wisdom of racial reparations.

St Joe Cowards Persecute Greg Manco

Manco was placed on paid leave and is under investigation for expressing this opinion.

The tweet had been circulated among the school’s activist community with instructions to contact the school administrators to demand Manco’s firing.

The problem isn’t the activist community. Spoiled activists will spoil. It’s their nature. They can’t help it. The problem is the school administration for not dismissing the complaints out of hand. Cowards will coward you might say but we should never tolerate cowards in school administration or any type of leadership role.

The St. Joseph administrators are clearly cowards. They must be replaced.

With regard to racial reparations, it is a disgusting racist concept that must not be merely questioned but dismissed out of hand.

Congrats to PW for good journalism and to Bob for letting us know about it.

Designed to Debunk Lies About America

Bob Small of Swarthmore has forwarded this information about a free online-class at Hillsdale College that many of our readers might find of interest. The class is designed to debunk the premeditated lies about our nation being promoted by what has become the establishment.

It is widely claimed today that our nation is irredeemably flawed—that America has been fundamentally unjust from the beginning due to the “systemic racism.”

The purpose of promoting this falsehood is to sever Americans’ patriotic attachment to our country and its founding principles in order to replace our limited government Constitution with radically different form of government.

The only way to confront this false and dangerous narrative—and preserve free government—is to counter it with the true and honest story of America’s quest to achieve justice.

Next month, Hillsdale College will be releasing its latest free online course: “Civil Rights in American History.” I invite you to pre-register for this free online course by visiting this secure link:

https://lp.hillsdale.edu/civil-rights-in-american-history-course-pre-registration

Topics covered by this nine-lecture course include:

  • The American Founders’ understanding of equality and natural rights
  • The arguments over slavery from the founding period through the Civil War
  • The true history of Reconstruction
  • The importance of civil rights leaders from Booker T. Washington to Martin Luther King, Jr. in the quest for justice
  • The impact and legacy of the Civil Rights Act of 1964
  • The danger posed to civil rights by identity politics today

Given the divisions in our country and the violence in our cities, this new course on “Civil Rights in American History” could not be more timely.

To guarantee the impact of this timely and important new course, we have set a goal to raise $350,000 by midnight on November 21.

You can pre-register now for this important free online course at this secure page.

New York Times Opposes Free Speech

New York Times Opposes Free Speech— Swarthmore’s Bob Small has sent us this link from an Oct. 11 Glen Greenwald article that appeared in The Intercept, describing how the union representing the dead trees inksters — no, they are not journalists –of The New York Times has taken a bold stand against dissent and free speech.

What has invoked the ire of The New York Times Newspaper Guild is an column by Bret Stephens taking to task the discredited 1619 Project promoted by the greedy tree killing corporation.

We have written about the 1619 Project before. It’s garbage befitting The New York Times.

Enrollment Plummets At Pennsylvania State Universities

Enrollment Plummets At Pennsylvania State Universities

By Lowman S. Henry 

Governor Tom Wolf’s address to a joint session of the General Assembly in early February marked the official beginning of the annual state budget process. Higher education, specifically the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education (PASSHE), became a dominant issue.

Enrollment Plummets At Pennsylvania State Universities

Unfettered by economic reality, the costs of higher education have skyrocketed. The result is massive student debt and never-ending calls for more taxpayer dollars to subsidize our education institutions. This despite declining enrollment and an economy more in need of individuals trained for technical jobs or skilled in the trades.

Adding fuel to the fire, the governor proposed diverting more than $200 million from subsidies to the state’s horse racing industry to pay for scholarships or to help reduce the debt burden for students attending state-run colleges. Most of the money to pay for the scholarship program would be diverted from the Horse Racing Development Fund.

Revenue to supply that fund is generated by taxes from the slot machines that now dot the commonwealth’s landscape. That is ironic because casino gambling in the state began as a plan to place slots at race tracks in an effort to save the then floundering horse racing industry. What gaming has become is a subject for another day, but taking away that revenue stream resulted in predictable howls of protest from those in the equine community.

Governor Wolf’s solution to every problem is to spend more taxpayer money. He is especially fond of throwing more dollars at education, without ever demanding those dollars be spent prudently and with no means of measuring quality. Likewise, as predictable as Punxsutawney Phil emerging from his burrow, the reigning chancellor of PASSHE every February petitions the legislature for more money.

In so doing they have turned a blind eye to market forces. This is because most in the higher education community don’t view education as a product. While there is merit to valuing education for the sake of adding to the societal pool of knowledge or even for personal edification, the main reason for obtaining a higher education is to equip oneself to earn money – presumably at a higher level than one would have earned without a degree.

To that end, state system schools have become the retail equivalent of shopping malls – overbuilt behemoths with a rapidly declining customer base. According to the Allegheny Institute for Public Policy in Pittsburgh, enrollment at the 14-university system peaked in 2010 at 119,513 students. By the fall of 2019 enrollment had dropped by 20 percent to 95,494 students. Mansfield University saw an enrollment decline of 51 percent, while Cheney’s enrollment fell by 61 percent.

With a declining customer base, the schools have not only failed to contain costs but have actually increased both annual spending and debt. The schools’ combined financial liability has increased from $2.07 billion in 2010 to $5.46 billion in 2019. Pension liabilities are up 53 percent.

The decline in enrollment can be attributed to several factors. First, Pennsylvania’s high schools are graduating fewer students, thus the “customer base” is shrinking. Second, state-related universities such as Penn State and the nation’s private universities are doing a better job of attracting students.

And while all of the above have made adaptations to accommodate non-traditional students, adult continuing education, and on-line learning, they have failed to adequately respond to the fact the nation’s workforce has less and less need for classically educated individuals and a greater need for those with a technical education or ability to work in the building trades.

Yes, there will always be a need for those equipped with four-year college degrees and higher. But, the failure of the higher education community to contain costs and adapt to market forces has made such an education unaffordable for many potential students. This is especially true when high paying, family-sustaining jobs in manufacturing and the trades are readily available, and for significantly less cost for training.

In the age of Amazon, Governor Wolf and the higher education establishment are stuck in a brick and mortar world. They are over-built, inefficient, and fail to deliver a needed product. Cost containment, consolidation, and a realistic assessment of workforce needs are necessary steps. Simply giving them more taxpayer dollars will only make the problem worse.

Lowman Henry is chairman and CEO of the Lincoln Institute and host of the weekly Lincoln Radio Journal.

Trump Extends Pell Grants; Black Colleges Benefit

Trump Extends Pell Grants; Black Colleges Benefit — Students at historically Black colleges had petitioned Barack Obama for years to make Pell Grants year-round for college students as many of them attend summer school.

Obama ignored this as was typical.

Trump approved this in less than two years and giving students fresh financial aid options, notes Deroy Murdock.

Sarah Honeychurch Attacked By The Sick And Evil

Sarah Honeychurch Attacked By The Sick And Evil — Swarthmore free speech activist Bob Small has informed us of some twisted news from the U.K.

Sarah Honeychurch, a fellow in the Adam Smith Business School at Glasgow University, has criticized an LGBT training program pushed by the rich and powerful in that country on the grounds that the claims it makes are “anti-scientific” yet are presented as an “objective fact.”

Pretty reasonable objection.

So why are there serious calls for her to lose her job?

Do sick and evil perverts predominate among the rich and powerful?

OK, silly question.

For the rest of us, let us stand up for the principle that bullies are always bad whether they are picking on a gay guy or attacking an honest dissenter speaking truth to power.

The program is run by the charity Stonewall.

Robert Hockett Unwillingness To Tell The Truth

Robert Hockett Unwillingness To Tell The Truth — Tucker Carlson of Fox News is one of the better interviewers and on Friday (Feb. 8), he sold pompous Cornell professor Robert Hockett enough rope to hang himself.

Hockett seems to be one of the puppet masters of new socialist darling Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY14) who is being marketed as AOC, an abbreviation of her name.

Anyway, AOC released a bizarre manifesto on Feb. 5 calling for a Green New Deal in which she called for spending trillions to replace airplanes with trains, ban farting cows and provide “economic security to all who are unable or unwilling to work.”

Well Hockett sputtered she never said those thing and the phrase came from a “doctored document from someone other than us.”

It is truly amazing how easy it is for progressives to lie without shame.

The part about cow emissions. Click to enlarge.

Leaving aside the many contemporaneous reports of the phrase attributed to Ocasio-Cortez, there is an internet archive of it from her website. It can be found here.

Tucker’s interview can be seen below.
