America’s Universities are About to Reveal Their Essential Uselessness

Harvard: America’s most expensive University of Phoenix clone.Harvard announced on Monday that it will hold no face-to-face undergraduate classes  this fall – all “learning” the students accomplish will be done on-line. This plan could also extend through the spring semester of 2021.

Oh, but guess what? That $49,000 tuition per semester won’t be commensurately reduced. Oh, no – perish that thought.

Think about what Harvard and other universities who take this same politically-motivated approach are about to see happen to them over the next year: Millions of parents who have been either footing the bills or watching their kids go into heinous debt so they can attend classes in the “hallowed halls” of extremely overrated brainwashing factories that are largely responsible for producing the mindset behind all of the Marxist-led social unrest we are seeing this summer are going to realize just how unnecessary those “hallowed halls” happen to be.

It’s inevitable. We are going to see the exact same dynamic take place in the commercial real estate market as employers are figuring out that most of their employees are actually more productive working from home and don’t need to commute to and from costly office space every day.

If all “learning” can be achieved equally well from a distance, if every university can become just another University of Phoenix, then why in the hell have America’s parents been paying for the building of all of these stupidly-costly palaces filled with tenured professors who haven’t really taught a damn thing in decades? Surely, an institution of higher learning like Harvard would not implement a 100% distance-learning agenda unless it could ensure its students continued to learn at the same pace, right?

Well, right???

Here’s the other thing that is inevitably about to happen: Many parents of students learning from home are likely to take advantage of that fact to witness first-hand the kind of Marxist/anarchist crap these universities are indoctrinating their children with. And those parents are going to be horrified, and they will talk with other parents of other students who they know.

Trust me, that will not be a positive sequence of events for America’s universities.

One of the dirty little secrets about the Antifa/BLM domestic terror complex is that the vast majority of those chubby, pasty-white Millennials you invariably see leading those riots and making up most of their participants were indoctrinated with Marxist/anarchist ideology while in college. These aren’t teenagers – the basic age group appears to be in the 25-35 year old range. They didn’t just think up all of this anti-America nonsense on their own or stumble into some organic riot planning meeting – they were steeped in this radical ideology by university professors.

About a month ago, some football players at The University of Texas famously sent out a long list of demands about renaming buildings, removing statues from the campus and declaring the school song – The Eyes of Texas – to be “racist.” (It isn’t.)

Guess who wrote that list of demands? If you think it was those football players, you might be naive about the thinking and writing abilities of 20 year-old wide receivers. The list was written by a radical professor at UT. That professor’s name will inevitably be made public soon enough.

The point here is that these kids don’t just come up with this stuff on their own. Left to their own devices, these kids are going to drink some beer, smoke some pot, listen to a whole lot of really bad music, study a little bit and end up getting a 4-year degree in 5 or 6 years. But at our nation’s universities, these professors and other campus radicals aren’t going to leave them to their own devices. And that’s how you end up with a dozen U.S. cities being looted and burned by domestic terrorist groups over a month of one summer.

Thus, one of the great benefits of a year of distance learning is that these students will have far less exposure to their professors and thus, much less indoctrination time.

There is no more fundamentally archaic, financially draining and wasteful institution in America today than the nation’s university system. By pretending for political reasons that they can’t risk letting 18 to 23 year-olds who are virtually impervious to COVID-19 go back to school this fall, these universities are about to reveal their essential uselessness to the world.

Cool.

That is all.

Pelosi, Sisolak Take TDS Depravity Beyond The Pale

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II (Because the Campaign Never Ends)

Some mid-day notes everyone should be aware of:

America’s universities in action. – Harvard University has the largest university endowment on the face of the earth, currently estimated at over $40 billion. Yesterday, as reported by the Washington Free Beacon, Harvard laid off its dining hall workers in an effort to “cut costs”:

A Harvard spokesman said he was unable to provide the Free Beacon with the number of subcontract employees in dining services. In 2018, the New York Times reported that the university dining halls employed 275 subcontractors.

Based on the local living wage standard, it would cost Harvard $710,000 to provide four weeks of full-time paid leave for all of its subcontracted dining employees. This represents 0.001 percent of Harvard’s endowment.

Other universities that have transitioned to online classes have handled the situation with contract employees differently. The University of Chicago said last week it would continue paying its subcontract workers through the end of the academic year. The University of Chicago has an endowment of $8.5 billion, around one-fifth the size of Harvard’s.

Disgusting.

Speaking of disgusting people… – San Fran Nan is holding up the passage of the senate stimulus bill again. As reported by the Daily Caller, Pelosi is now using arcane House procedures as a tactic for delaying any action by her chamber for at least one more day:

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi delayed the passage of the Senate’s coronavirus relief package on Wednesday, as the House was in session for nearly three minutes and then adjourned until Thursday.

“House Democrats will now review the final provisions and legislative text of the agreement to determine a course of action,” Pelosi said about the nearly $2 trillion emergency relief deal which will be voted on Wednesday afternoon in the Senate after a long night of negotiations. Meaning, the House will not be able to vote on the package for another day.

This is yet another clear effort by Pelosi to cause another day of negative stock market reaction. She will do literally anything, including throwing people out of jobs and causing more human misery, in her neverending zeal to harm President Trump. The woman is a sub-human ghoul, a clear domestic enemy.

Speaking of Democrat ghouls… – The Democrat Governor of Nevada, Steve Sisolak, last night issued an executive order denying coronavirus patients access to hydroxychloroquine, the safe, well-known medication that has been proven in multiple peer-reviewed studies as an effective treatment for the China Flu. As reported by Sifi.com:

Despite the world including India pinning the hope on anti-malaria drugs to treat serious COVID-19 patients, Nevadas governor has ordered to ban use of chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine to treat new coronavirus patients.

The governor’s executive order came after US President Donald Trump termed the drugs as a potential treatment for treating the illness, reports NYPost.

A man in US state of [Arizona] died and his wife was in critical condition after taking “an additive used to clean fish tanks called chloroquine phosphate, similar to the drug used to treat malaria”.

[End]

Thus, we have a Democrat Governor, in a zeal to do political harm to the U.S. President, banning a safe and effective treatment to patients in danger of dying because a couple of idiots decided to ingest fish tank cleaner. It’s akin to banning the use of Clorox to bleach white shirts because a couple of kids found a bottle of it under the kitchen sink and had to have their stomachs pumped.

This is a special kind of Trump Derangement Syndrome depravity, folks. It is utterly beyond the pale.

That is all, for now.
