This campus commie is a piker in comparison.
They have hold of your child's mind seven hours a day...
Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels wrote in The Communist Manifesto of their plan for the "abolition of the family," to "replace home education by social" or public schools, and to replace monogamy with "an openly legalized community of women" (sharing women in common).

It never ceases to delight me with the schadenfreude that the MI-GOP rubes bury themselves in, with their chosen duplicitous chair Boobie ShowStak, having a hot air case of the fantods about an uncreative commie bleating his DNC talking points on MSU's campus.

Was that the investment by the Michigan GOP for the University board and Michigan Board of Education candidates?
Is it surprising that we lost the 8 seats while at the same time maintaining control of the state house? Those state wide races needed the Michigan GOP to step up, but there wasn't any pretense of help or assistance.
Tim Bos (letter below the fold) puts it best.

Sometimes overpaid, overly powerful, over egoed individuals can cartoon themselves in a single line. Mary Sue Coleman's comment during a discussion on consolidation just struck me as humorous. from the Ivory Tower:
"We are market driven," Coleman said. "If we are offering a degree that nobody wants, we drop it."Uhh yeah, but Mary sue? If you eliminate ALL "Non Market" elements from the program, could you still say that?
Right. I thought so. But the chuckles don't stop there. WSU president Allan Gilmour says there's not much "clamor" for consolidation.
"The alternative (to autonomous universities) is a czar, a commission in Lansing," he said, adding he didn't think any of the business leaders in the audience would want politicians running their companies.
Oh heavens no. Not politicians. In fact I agree.
But Mr Gilmour? They pay to play. WE pay to play. So maybe you ought to swear off public assistance entirely and for the benefit of M.S. Coleman and yourself become TRULY autonomous, so that you can attain TRUE market status.
Ask your economics departments how that will work for you.
And carry a laugh prompt card for use as necessary.
