Praise the prof and pass the bong

Puppy Blender link about the higher ed bubble.
I'm not discussing if there is a higher ed bubble*, I'm just talking about this the pic at the link.
Written on the pic is:
"Four years for a BS with honors
6 years for a Ph.D
Now, I work 70 hours a week for $30K
It just wasn't worth it. I want my 20s back"

If you're working 70 hours for $30k I'm gonna guess neither your BS nor your master's nor your Ph.D required any math and since you don't say J.D, you're not being abused by a law firm.

But that's not the point.

The point is the "I want my 20s back."

You partied your ass off for your 20s on your parent's dime and loans.

You didn't want to go out into the "real world" so you kept going for your Ph.D in 12th century French poetry or Linguistics of the Patriarchy and now have to work your butt off teaching English at a community college or something.

In other words, you partied your ass off and got some useless degrees and now you're mad?
Color me totally uncaring.

*I would suggest there is one for high-dollar schools.
I went to state schools when I went back so my student loan payments are around $130/month.
And that only because I didn't feel like working full time+ the last  two years, I had no loans for the first two years, no sleep, but no loans.
I tutored for pocket money and let loans pay my $350/month rent and pot of stew every week for the last two years in Fucking Utica.

The company you keep says a lot about you

It seems that The Twat has a rather, um, "interesting" buddy writing over at TwatForum...

The sexual exploitation of children is an almost unimaginable horror, abetted by the insidious online movement to paint pedophilia as just another puritan taboo. It should be just as unimaginable that a prominent public intellectual would allow this evil to fester in the conservative movement, but that is precisely what former Bush administration speechwriter David Frum does each time he renews his support of former NewsReal Blog contributor Alex Knepper.

Knepper’s disgusting views on sex have been thoroughly documented in posts we have written here at NewsReal Blog. We have contacted Frum three times to present evidence of Knepper’s degeneracy. In response, he snidely brushed off our documentation, instead focusing his protege’s energy on how to “fight the crazy right.” Never has Frum condemned any of this previously-disclosed material.

The whole thing has to be read to be believed, but I'm going to warn you right now—there is some *EXTREMELY DISTURBING AND NSFW CONTENT* at the link.

I know that nobody here was buying the crap that The Twat was selling, but he needs to be shunned from polite company until he turns his back on this sick fucking creep.

I am very seldomly required to wear a suit and tie...

...but on those occasions, I try to do my sartorial best. This includes wearing suits that are somewhat slimming for my frame (the cut and color/pattern can do wonders for your own lying eyes), crisp dress shirts, and choosing a tie that has a classic pattern that is free of hate symbols.

I would imagine (I hope so, anyway) that he just didn't notice.

Fun Fact: In the fifth grade, I actually sat next to his niece. Nice girl, and pretty, too. And she never expressed any hostility to any ethnic or religious group that I can remember.

Andrew Sullivan, the last True Conservative™

Okay, maybe not the last one—after all, we still have Frum, Brooks, and Parker to look toward for sage wisdom—but here's the author of The Conservative Soul talking about his fantasy date:

It's time for the sane center and the left to rally behind this president, especially given the domestic and foreign policy recklessness of the alternative.
The "alternative," I'm assuming, is a massive wave of GOP wins in the midterm elections. The "recklessness" is harder to pin down. Could it be...

Spending cuts in an era of massive, Obama-created deficits?

The repeal of a law that, for the first time in the nation's history (and, very arguably, in violation of the Constitution) would compel citizens to purchase something whether they want to or not?

The extension of tax cuts during a recession, thereby allowing business owners to grow the economy?

Kicking creeps like Barney Frank who helped to engineer the economic collapse out of office?

Making sure that a leftist pipe dream like Cap and Tax never gets near Obama's desk?

It's funny, but I get the feeling that Sullivan isn't really a conservative at all. But, then again, I'm just a nobody and I never get invited to appear on libertarian Bill Maher's show.

Blogrolling script pulled

Some of you have received warnings about malware due to a bad script seeded into Blogrolling.  Blogrolling script has been removed and will stay removed till blogrolling gets their shit in order.  Saw Patterico going on about Blogrolling's malware issue on Twitter, so I know we're not the only ones.

I sure hope there's more to this than what's being reported

Maybe the objecting parents were being asses - er, booties - at the meeting and that's why their daughter was kicked off the squad.  Because I'd sure hate to think that the other parents were all about having their 6-year-old daughters call attention to body parts that shouldn't be having attention called to.

Bad Parenting: Rule 1

It is impossible to be a good parent if you are unaware of your child's location. 

Prosecutors in Milwaukee County have charged a 20-year-old mother with misdemeanor child neglect after the woman's 2-year-old daughter was found wandering Milwaukee's streets near 27th and Burleigh late this past Monday night.

Well, thank God they found her!  I'm sure her mother was worried sick!  Why add insult to injury?!?
Police released the girl's picture to the media after investigators were unable to figure out who she was.  Someone recognized the girl and directed police to the girl's mother, Shymika Williams.

According to a criminal complaint, the girl's mother told police that she had taken the girl to a home near 29th and Burleigh approximately two weeks ago.  The mother said she paid the people there $25 to watch her daughter for the weekend.

"The people there."  Heh.  Well, I'm sure they were mature adults who could be trusted caring for a child.  Someone must have abducted her or something.

That person, who is a 13-year-old, corroborated the story about watching the girl.

Wait, what the fuck?  She better have rushed back after the weekend.

While the mother didn't know those people's last names or exact address, she said they had watched her daughter before and were related to her sister's children.

As far as I know?  I mean, Obama's related to McCain, right? 

She said after the weekend, a person named NeNe took the girl and that was the last she time she had seen the girl.

Well, as long as fucking NeNe has her.  Finally, some adult supervision.

The mother claims she hadn't seen her daughter for two weeks.  It's not clear where the girl was the entire time, although the mom did say that after a week, NeNe called her and asked if she could watch her longer.  The mother told authorities that NeNe lives in a foster home.

What.  The fuck. 

I believe it is time to play euthanize six degrees of Shymika Williams.

Please oh please let the author be in Texas

Where "he just needed killin" is still a valid defense.

I suppose the good news is, if we find someone in possession of this manual, we can lynch him right away instead of waiting for him to actually hurt someone.

Kathleen Parker continues to be stupid

We have a few tried and true punching bags here, and Kathleen Parker is one who seldom fails to disappoint, so to speak.

In a column where she suggests that social networking sites like Facebook and MySpace may hold the key to Middle East peace—Facebook "friends" don't tend to kill each other, she basically contends—everyone's least favorite "conservative" columnist manages to out-stupid herself with the following:

Meanwhile, evidence mounts that sentiments are shifting among younger people, whose worldviews are broader than those of previous generations. Recent polling by Frank Luntz found that American Jewish college students are more willing than their elders to question the Israeli position. They resist groupthink and desperately want peace.

Might Palestinian youth feel similarly? Alas, I could find no similar polls.


First of all, we're talking about American college kids who have probably never faced a Hamas rocket attack being polled here, not Israelis. Secondly, you "could find no similar polls" because...

1.) I doubt Frank Luntz does much polling in Gaza and/or the West Bank and, more importantly...

2.) Many Palestinian children are brought up from birth to hate their Jewish neighbors and are taught early and often that killing people is a great way to get into heaven.

Such people are not known to desperately want peace.

Meanwhile, Kathleen Parker draws a paycheck from the MFM in between remembering to breathe.

“I’m a dentist and I don’t think this country is headed in the right direction.”

I was going to call your bullshit, but you're a dentist? 

Well, in that case, fuck away!

"I'm a vagrant blogger and I don't think conventional physics theories are getting enough play vis a vis string theory."

"I'm a asteroid mining robot and I really like Jennifer Aniston's hair."

Could his being a dentist have less to do with the rest of his statement?  Is there a word for completely unrelated expositional phrases in a sentence?

Compare and contrast


I say to you today, my friends, that in spite of the difficulties and frustrations of the moment, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream.

I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal."

I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at a table of brotherhood.

I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a desert state, sweltering with the heat of injustice and oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice.

I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.

...and contrast:
"Shame on them. We still have a dream. We are here to let those folks on the Mall know that they don't represent the dream," said Jaime Contreras, president of SEIU-32BJ. "They sure as hell don't represent me. They represent hate-mongering and angry white people. The happy white people are here today. We will not let them stand in the way of the change we voted for!"
That is all.

Confidential to "Ann A."

Glenn Reynolds writes:

A law school classmate who was a big Obama supporter emails: “Have to say, I thought you were overstating the dangers of Obama before the election. Sheesh. This November can’t come fast enough.”

I didn’t say “I told you so.”
Heh. Indeed. I was told that if I voted for John McCain, we'd all be well and truly fucked, and now we are!

(I'd link to a sale on cookware or digital cameras at Amazon here, but I'm fucking tired and can't think of any more Instapundit cliches, so I'm about to go to bed now.)

I've been trying to puzzle out what the rationalization for this is.  All I can figure is that, if the school was acting with the best of intentions, they were trying to ensure that there was some racial diversity in student government and handled it insensitively afterward.  I think I might be giving the school more credit than they're due.
