Another of his excellent semi-rant observations.
…agreeing with a progressive is like shaking hands with a leper.
Not a big deal, really, just one of those stories with the sound of the second shoe dropping.
In a joint statement, CU President Bruce Benson and Boulder campus Chancellor Phil DiStefano said they were pleased with the decision and now consider the matter to be settled.
Any reasonable person knew he was done at CU and would never regain his tenured position at that institution again, not after about 20 other academics ratted him out as a total fraud.
Still, we had some good old times with “Chutch” over at the place that shall not be named, where many of us met as blog buddies.
So in celebration of the fraud Churchill’s just firing being upheld by the courts, I take us back, waaay back to 4 Feb 2005, when Iowahawk introduced us to Chutch.
SONG: “Colorado Kung-Fu Justice Man”
Words & Music by Tommy Terry and Danny Boycey
Performed by Jan-Peter Bronston
From the ABC-Polyglam LP, “Arapazowee Nation”
In the aspen covered Rockies there’s a legend often told
Of a tenured native shaman with a cougar, grey and gold
He had two fists of fury and a Master of Arts Degree
From accredited Sangamon State University
He was a Colorado kung fu justice man,
Fighting fascist critics across the campus land.
Office hours: Monday Wednesday Friday 9 to 10
Colo-RADO (kung fu)
Colo-RADO (kung fu)
With red hair in his hat and Arapazowee soul
Speaking truth to power was his only goal
Writing grants and lectures, a simple mountain life
A Bultaco for his horse and a cougar for his wife
Adios, Chief Fakeyourassoff, we hardly knew you…and we are truly thankful for that.
Rachel Corrie, the fun-loving idealist, the peace-making protector of innocent Arab children, the face of human shields everywhere, the rich, white, suburban girl who became the matron saint of wannabe Code-Pink martyrs, the Peace Activist™ whose actions still beg the question, “Is it bravery or stupidity to stand in-between a kill-dozer and its intended target?”, Rachel Corrie was flattened 10 years ago today.
So, Happy St. Pancake Day! Have a stack of Aunt Jemimahs and walk out on the tab.
Blame it on the Zionists.
Blame it on Bush.
Rachel Corrie lives!
The Occupation Crowd made it to Smith Park in Jackson, yesterday. Nuke’s contributor, Jseedubya was there to provide us with some idea of what happened.
I went to the Occupy Jackson Rally this morning. I wanted to see for myself what this “movement” was all about. I understand the basis of their complaints, corporate greed, and the fact that politicians favor Wall Street over Main Street. In fact, I can relate to their anger as I too am having a tough time in this degraded economy. I agree that there needs to be some significant changes to the status quo, and I was curious to hear their ideas, if any, that the 99 percenters were promoting.
Some of what I saw was just plain bizarre. They claim to have no “leader”, but one fellow wearing a “wifebeater” t-shirt, and oversize belt buckle with a pot leaf emblem on it, did seem to be the head honcho. He would make a statement, and the crowd would repeat his words, almost like the were chanting. Then they would throw their hands up in the air like an old-time tent revival, and wiggle their fingers in agreement with the chanting.
