Lots of conservatives and libertarians say "Welcome to the party, pal."
This is two brand new things happening in two weeks. The Middle Class
rioting in France and forcing the government to back the hell down off
their shiny new fuel tax, and now pop music fans telling Lefties to shut
the fuck up about their diva.
If you're expecting praise for being so sensitive and caring, and suddenly some of the people you're expecting it from tell you to eff off, it would be a horrible shock to an Enlightened One.
Excuse me while I catch my breath from laughing.
The latest study published
by the highly-credentialed researchers in these well-funded programs,
“California's comprehensive background check and misdemeanor violence
prohibition policies and firearm mortality,” was designed to evaluate
the effect of California’s 1991 comprehensive background check and
prohibiting those convicted of violent misdemeanors policies on firearm
homicide and suicide. The study period was 1981-2000, with secondary
analysis up to 2005.
Using a synthetic control methodology, the
researchers found that the comprehensive background check and violent
misdemeanor prohibitions were not associated with changes in firearm
suicide or homicide.
In conversational language, the two policies had no effect.
Higher Education: "I want to get rid of you, so I'll find SOMETHING you've done. Even if it's bullshit."
Herzog placed Gouws on “Official Warning Status” on November 13, on
the grounds that he was guilty of “substantial and manifest neglect of
professional duties.” Sounds serious, does it not? Was Gouws out
throwing darts in the Springfield pub when he should have been teaching
class? Using students’ term papers for tinder at campfires for
Springfield’s dwindling cohort of men?
No. Herzog’s complaints focus on his refusal to meet in person with
the chair of his department to discuss some student complaints. The
chair, Alice Knox-Eaton, declined to tell Gouws the nature of the
complaints or who had complained, and she refused to put the matter in
writing. Gouws has his back up about this, having already been subjected
to closed-door berating on the basis of supposed student allegations
that he was never allowed to see.
I'd be pissed about that, too. An administrator playing "You can't know what the complaints are, and none of this will be in writing" is a Party enforcer who figures they can get away with anything. And you'd be a fool to play their game.
One of the Democrats admits that their clown show over the Kavanaugh nomination cost them.
Well, that and being a hypocritical asshat politician in other ways.
