North Carolina defunding leftist schools



Can you believe that North Carolina, in a very small way, is defunding a small piece of the vast propaganda arm of higher education?

An advisory panel of the University of North Carolina’s Board of Governors has recommended closing three academic centers, including a poverty center and one dedicated to social change, inciting outrage among liberals who believe that conservatives in control of state government are targeting ideological opponents in academia.

Don't you love it when liberals have feel outraged? Usually they feel outraged when they see taxpayer money slipping out of their hands.

The advisory group’s report, which is likely to be considered by the full Board of Governors next Friday, recommends closing the Center on Poverty, Work and Opportunity at Chapel Hill; North Carolina Central University’s Institute for Civic Engagement and Social Change; and East Carolina University’s Center for Biodiversity.

The head of the poverty center said the center’s only agenda was to raise the profile of poverty in the state through research, teaching and advocacy. He added that the center did not receive any money directly from the Legislature, relying solely on private donations for its $120,000 annual operating budget.

If the "poverty center" really didn't receive any money from the legislature, then they shouldn't be upset that the money, which they say they weren't receiving, was cut off. (I somehow think they are receiving money, or else why are they protesting at all?)

Jim Holmes, the chairman of the advisory group, said the three centers were not doing much work and were not encouraging multidisciplinary efforts as intended. “This is not a political issue or a political report,” he said. “Everybody wants to make it that.”

Steven B. Long, a member of the advisory group and a former Civitas board member, said that the center had engaged in “inappropriate” activism. He also criticized it for filing costly lawsuits against local governments.

In other words, taxpayer money was being used to fund political activism. No wonder they want to shut it down.

Here's a tip: you don't need an institute to study poverty. The only jobs these centers ever created were their own. If you want to end poverty, lower taxes and reduce regulations to create businesses. You don't need an institute to research that, although, perhaps, it would be beneficial to have core curriculum classes on capitalism and entrepreneurship for undergraduates. But it sounds like the UNC is more interested in filing activist lawsuits.

Here's my own idea towards improving higher education: let's liquidate community colleges.

Illegal Aliens complaining about lack of bilingual doctors


The LA Times reported that illegal aliens are unhappy that not enough doctors speak Spanish. The article never used the words "illegal" or "undocumented" or "dreamer" or "super virtuous" or however we are to call illegal aliens nowadays; only referring to "Hispanics" who can't understand English. But since all citizens understand English, or should, I presume that the article is only talking about illegal aliens. Now let the sob story begin:

Harvard Study: Women are better legislators


I will know I am still dreaming when I think I wake up and read an article describing a study that finds that men are better at something than women. You'll never read that. But we do have studies coming out of our ears on how much capable women are than men. The first is sexist, the second is progressive. What was it that Napoleon the pig used to say in Animal Farm?

Why feminists want to be dominated


Have you ever wondered why feminist groups have been silent on the new movie, 50 Shades of Grey? In the movie, a young woman is spanked, whipped, degraded, has objects inserted into her bottom, and is treated like a subservient sexual object. Feminist groups have been screaming for years about sexual harassment and the poor treatment of women. Why are they silent about this film?
