and screw the students. Except the information they can extract from them for the Obama campaign.
For that, they pay tuition? I could email my notes for the whole semester, but these are students who pay$40,040 tuition per year!
($21,350 if they are Wisconsin residents, a break they get because
their parents pay the exorbitant Wisconsin taxes that help keep this
stellar university going.)
From an earlier post:
"President Barack Obama will hold a campaign rally on Bascom Hill this Thursday."
Openly announces the University of Wisconsin—Madison.
After I went to all that trouble to critique the earlier attempt to frame the visit as historical and presidential, when it was really a campaign rally.
I can't believe the University is shutting down, closing buildings such as the Law School, depriving us of the rooms for regularly scheduled classes, for an entire day, to accommodate a campaign rally. The grounds and the students are provided for a massively intrusive photo-op. Of course, the students don't have to attend. But they will. They've paid their tuition for classes, which they're not getting, and their bodies are repurposed for political exploitation.
Hey, what's losing a day of classes you've been charged out the ass for when they can use you to push The Lightworkers' campaign?
