And Now… More Idiots

Thanks to LC Sarge we’re alerted to yet another masterpiece from the brilliant Michelle Malkin (who has an excellent blog too). As if we didn’t already read every syllable she writes.

It seems that some pencil-pushing fucknozzle, one Federal Air Marshal Service Director Thomas Quinn, is too obsessed with dress code to bother with such minor problems as security.

Next, he’ll be requiring his air marshals to wear a sign saying “I’m an Air Marshal, and I’m Here to Help”.

Assnugget.

Next, in case you’re wondering where the traitor swine infesting the MSM are being spawned, LC Zeek informs us that known fifth columnist and terrorist sympathizer, professor of journalism Robert Jensen at UT Austin, has been busy celebrating our losses in Iraq.

This columnist suggests that we start a deportation fund, and we’re 100% behind it. If we get to choose the way he’s sent away, that is.

An unheated cargo bay in an old DC3 would do nicely. I always wondered if the eyeballs pop before they freeze or after.

    The old goonybirds don’t have enough altitude for that. He’d just get really really cold. Hypothermia might do him in. But he’s not going to freeze solid.

    It would take an early model jet I’m thinking.

    I read somewhere these same shitbords too kmarshalls off a plane because they weren’t wearing sportcoats.

    Do they have to wear those ridiculously shiny shoes that used to give all cops away, and those little earpieces?

    And we wonder why the HeadChoppersr aren’t afraid of us…because we let dolts like these make decisions, instead of launching them into the sun.

    The older I get, the more I think the “just shoot the fuckers” approach is the correct one.

    Ultimately, parents (since they’re the ones paying the bills) should quit sending their checks to UT Austin until said Professor is shitcanned. Yes, Mr. Jensen does have the right to his opinion, however, a University is ultimately a business and parents have a right not to frequent a business which supports such a vile agenda.

    About a year ago a Dallas talk radio show had the good professor on. It was truly illuminating. When the host, POLITELY, began to refute with facts, some of Jensen’s statements the professor became enraged. He started to sputter and snarl. Calmly and smoothly Greg Knapp said, “You aren’t in your classroom where you can just toss stuff out and expect people not to question it.” The professor hung up on the talk show host.

    How he retains his post at UT-Austin is a shame. But then Austin is a cesspool of liberalism in Texas.

    There are several colleges waiting for the outcome so they can ban the military as well. The only reason they haven’t is a law ruling that said they couldnt. They are waiting to see if it gets overturned again.

    Xealot growls and barks:

    What I don’t get is why every liberal calls this country “The American Empire.” Allow me to define the term Empire: Large militarized nation ruled by an authoritarian figure, bent on conquest and subjugation.

    Funny. I don’t see “freedom” or “liberty” anywhere in there. I also don’t see any mention of “republic” or “democracy.” And last I checked, we didn’t address Bush as Emperor George the Second.

    So we spend billions to rebuild Iraq. We let them have their own elections, and begin preparing to pullout when the nation is put back together again. But yes, go ahead and call that conquest. I mean all conquering nations pay the people they conquer, and giving them money and rebuilding their industry is definately the worst form of subjugation. And I’m just sure that Emperor George II will annex Iraq as the 51st state any day now.

    Liberals obviously don’t know what “Empire” really means, and for a college professor, this is really pretty sad. Perhaps this Jensen fellow should try reading history instead of trying to revise it ;) .

    DumbAss Tanker growls and barks:

    Quinn is merely the bureaucratic type of idiot that those of us in the Federal military and law enforcement communities are entirely too used to trying to ‘get things done in spite of.’ They shouldn’t necessarily be killed, just retrained as tax accountants or something equally suited to their personalities.
    They unfortunately tend to rise in professions for which they are totally unsuited to be senior guiding hands because they are simply meticulous painstaking (and pain-in-the ass) micromanagers with no judgment or risk tolerance. In an environment where there is not much “free play” for their lack of judgment and perspective to exhibit itself early on (or where that approach works at the rubber-meets-road level but not so much at management levels, which is true to some extent for police work), they are all-too successful while displacing their betters over the long haul, due to their perfect bureaucratic records. They out-compete those who are willing to take the risk of trusting and empowering their subordinates, since no matter how successful that approach may be, it inevitably leads to a non-zero level of defects, losing out to the bureaucrats in the all-important area of what their work looks like in stats (as opposed to what a Hellhole slavepit the workplace they run might be).

    I think a demand for an apology should be made to Jensen, or better yet, to the school. In that demand, it might be wise to remind them that among the numerous federal grants they get, they have a current one worth around $4.5 million supplied in part by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. I guess their money is good enough, but the sacrifice is only worth scorn and derision.

    What an ass.

    Tao Libra growls and barks:

    Calling America an Empire is like calling Bush Hitler: To make either comparison is to exaggerate beyond reason, to distort and ignore reality.

    Any RATIONAL person can see why it is absurd to compare Bush to Hitler. The fact that people who make the comparison can continue to do so, rather than being carted away by the Secret Police, should be enough to demonstrate the difference between Bush and Hitler; and if it isn’t, perhaps the absence of extermination camps should be noted.

    It is equally absurd to concoct an American “Empire” where there is none, and to imagine that the U.S. Government is bent on world conquest.

    To whatever extent that America IS using its military might to shape the world, it is doing so to the benefit and advancement of DEMOCRACY. This would remain true even if our motivation was purely “Imperial.” Even if it was really All About The Oil?, it would still be true that Iraqis now have the freedom to build a democratic nation — and join the civilized world — thanks to America.

    To imagine that the Iraqis were somehow better off under Saddam, to imagine that this evil American Empire is worse than Saddam, is to be a contemptible Fool.

    To claim that American soldiers have not brought freedom to Iraq is a brazen LIE, and a despicable insult to the lives of all the Americans who have died fighting tyranny and terrorism in that godforsaken place.

    To say such things is to spit on America. To call for one’s own nation to be “defeated and dismantled” is TREASON.

    How far is Free Speech allowed to go? We are at WAR, and this maggot is cheering for the Enemy! How much longer do we have to listen to traitorous scum like this before we can send the Secret Police after them?

    Indeed Tao Libra, the absence of gestapol and extermination camps proves the leftists wrong in their assumptions.

    But to simply be wrong is one thing, we aren’t perfect. People can be wrong without being evil. However leftists are not merely wrong. It’s not an innocent mistake or an error, it’s a deliberate, brazen lie. They know just as well as we do that America is not an Empire, that Bush is not a Hitler. But they will use these phrases as banners to rally around to push their pacifist and collectivist agendas.

    These people are social addicts, they live to be in groups and cannot exist on their own. They typically become depressive, even suicidal when confronted with being alone. If this just affected their own lives, it would be one thing (hell, I’d hand them the gun to shoot themselves with). But they apply this fear on a global scale. They feel alone if Europe does not agree with the USA. They feel like everyone should agree and want to be a part of the big collectivist group because somewhere deep down they are afraid to be alone. So they will take absurd positions just because they want all the nations to agree and live in some quasi-hippie dreamworld.

    I take the opposite viewpoint, the objectivist viewpoint. If I can stand for my beliefs, if this country can stand for it’s beliefs…. when all other nations and people disagree. THIS IS A GOOD THING. We do what we believe to be right and just, and to hell with global public opinion polls.

    It’s just a pity that our universities and colleges don’t take the truly intellectual viewpoint, and instead cower behind the opinions of the masses. This Jensen takes wildly absurd positions with absolutely no regard for truth. Is this “higher learning?” No. Even as many college research departments invest in computer technology seeking to discover artificial intelligence, they miss the real point. Most colleges are thriving bastions of Genuine Stupidity. And the fault lies with professors like this one.

    I always wondered if the eyeballs pop before they freeze or after.

    I believe the answer is “while“. The crystalline structure of frozen water is such that it is less dense in a solid state. The aqueous humor of the human eye would probably behave similarly. Thus the eyeballs would be in a semi-frozen state when they popped. Something like eyeball ice cream, perhaps, or more like an eyeball Slurpee.

    LC Bishop, Imperial Titweasel growls and barks:

    Walter, while the tenure system was supposed to create an environment where the professor was free to make his own conclusions, without external influence; it has had two negative results.

    The first and most obvious of these is the sense of entitlement that a tenured professor is bathed in. I despise the system, and I myself would find it very difficult not to feel the same way after being immersed for years in this caste system.

    The financial rewards (especially in the Engineering and Science fields) through siphoning “consulting fees” based on an unreasonable number of hours said professor promises to devote to each project in the grant application.

    Of course, there is no project hour charging of this by the University; the professor is paid the full amount that he bills. It is in the University’s best interest not to provide this oversight, as the institution takes a facilities cut from each grant; up to 15-20% of the total award in some institutions.

    Thus there is no way that the university is going to refuse a grant over something as trivial as criminal fraud.

    The second, more subtle result of the tenure system is that the while not beholden to outside influences, now becomes beholden to his peers. AS far as the University is concerned, the two principle criteria for tenure are financial; the amount of grant dollars brought in, and prestige; the number and regularity of refereed publications. Small matters, like plagiarism and fraud, tend to get ignored.

    So as long as the tenure track assistant prof keeps publishing and bringing in dollars, the more difficult task is to gain approval from the members of the tenure committee. In my experience, this is often handled by writing these professors into grants as consultants, or performing work in support of the tenure committee Brahmans’ research.

    The decent professors mostly prefer to do their jobs as best they can, and are simply not interested in any “management” role. Many tend not to be confrontational, or are willing to give their ethically challenged colleagues the benefit of the doubt, and turn a blind eye.

    Let me be clear here, the number of decent professors far outweighs the bad and fraudulent; but it only takes a few bad ones pissing in the soup to foul it.

    Finally getting to your guest ion, I would propose the following:

    1 Tenure track professors must have at least 5 years experience in industry. Forget about post-docs in other universities, or federal labs.

    2. 40% of the tenure committee to be from outside institutions, with at least one from an applicable industry/discipline.

    3. Teaching effectiveness being one of the more important tenure criteria.

    4. Proper oversight and auditing of contracts, with termination and prosecution being the fruit of fraud.

    5. Consistent enforcement of academic dishonesty policy. For example: Putting ones name as first author on a paper of which you have not proof-read, on a research project that you have only peripheral involvement, should result in the same penalty for a prof as a student; namely expulsion. Yet, this behavior is accepted by university administrations.

    6. Tenure being subject to renewal every 10 years. This could be done as a relatively minor review, as long as it provided an opportunity to weed out the worst.

    Sorry for the long screed, but I witnessed every one of these things multiple times while a grad student. In my opinion, the system is very sick.
