    Blowback from the Education Bubble: University of Wisconsin, Stevens Point, has proposed dropping 13 majors in the humanities and social sciences — including English, philosophy, history, sociology and political science — while adding programs with “clear career pathways” such as chemical engineering, graphic design, and fire science as a way to address declining enrollment and a multimillion-dollar deficit.I’m all in favor of eliminating curriculums such as “social studies” – or any degree that includes the word “studies” for that matter: women’s studies, gender studies, black studies, race studies, ethnicity studies etc. Gender Studies MajorsIf that’s your area of interest save...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Remember, whenever a Clinton accuses someone else of wrongdoing, it means they’re guilty of that behavior themselves. – The Pantsuit Princess, in an interview on Dutch television, claimed that President Donald Trump has “undermined the office and used it to enrich himself and his family. Disregarded laws, ethical standards.” This, of course, is yet another episode of Clintonian “projection,” an attempt to deflect attention from her own influence scam while serving as Secretary of State. Seems the Grasping Grifter must have gotten wind that the Justice Department’s ongoing investigations into the Clinton...

    This week the US Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that job openings increased to a record 6.3 million. The number of openings now equals the number of currently unemployed Americans. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) assailed these statistics, saying "this is the economic disaster our Party tried to avert, but the GOP rammed through their tax cut, which as we now see, has created a serious labor shortage. Millions of unemployed Americans will now be pressured into taking jobs they'd rather not do." Pelosi also contended that "these statistics validate the foolishness of the Administration's determination to throttle immigration....

    As far as I can tell Fox is the only cable running wall-to-wall Austin Bomber Blows Himself Up coverage, possibly because they sent both the Deuce and Geraldo on-site to report. CNN and MSNBC are both continuing their non-stop trash talk Trump coverage, today’s emphasis seems to be – in addition to the Stormy Daniels Passes Lie Detector Test! exclusive – Trump having the audacity to congratulate Vladimir Putin on his win. They are in good company, saint-in-waiting John McCain was throwing the same bomb:But back in 2012, when John wasn’t feeling quite as close to earning his angel wings...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Don’t expect CNN to spend any real time covering this one. – A good guy with a gun stopped a school shooting on Tuesday, and the fake news media barely noticed. A “resource officer” at Great Mills High School in Southern Maryland responded within 60 seconds to reports of a shooter on campus and traded shots with the attacker in an act that likely prevented more killings from taking place. The shooter ultimately committed suicide, and witnesses called the officer, Deputy Blaine Gaskill, a hero. It is worth noting that, had the...

    First Generation Transmogrifier Question: How do you transform an absolutely brilliant political strategy into a venous scheme of astronomical proportion?Answer: Allow it to fall into the wrong hands. Case in point: Remember when Obama and his frat boy campaign squad were lauded as “brilliant” for their “innovative” use of data mining? Of course you do, everybody was talking about it( here, here, here, here, here, here and here – I could go on but you get the point). Even Congressional brain trust Maxine Waters got in on the crowing, despite not having a clue what she was talking about: "The President...

    CHARLOTTE, North Carolina — Before a reporter could go there with Carolina Panthers rookie running back Christian McCaffrey, right guard Trai Turner took it there. Turner rightly figured the discussion would turn to the fact that McCaffrey is among the handful of white players at his position in the NFL. “Have you seen him run?” Turner asked. “If you’ve seen the guy run, you don’t think about it [his race]. White, black, red, green — I don’t care what color he is. He’s special.” Nine games into his professional career, McCaffrey has flashed the talent that prompted the Panthers to...

    I understand that some Congressmen (by that I mean men and women, I’m unaware of any other “genders” currently serving but if there are, it includes them too) are offering jobs to Andrew McCabe in order to allow him to earn his federal pension. Would have been nice if they’d been similarly concerned about ordinary Americans who lost their jobs, and pensions, during the 8 year Obama occupation.I wish they’d just get back to tending to Global Warming, so the Rothschilds don’t end up running the world – and the weather.But what’s really not what’s bothering me today; number one...

I swear I don’t make this stuff up. “It’s climate manipulation and D.C. keep talking about ‘we are a resilient city’ and that’s a model based off the Rothschilds controlling the climate to create natural disasters they can pay for to own the cities, man.

I can't find a "My CD" folder, as described in one of the articles' repair steps. I'll do what I can from your suggestions, up to my limited knowledge base, to implement any ideas. Within reason. Thanks in advance.

    While in India promoting her election memoir "What Happened," former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton laid a big share of the blame for her loss to Trump on "white women who were too weak to stand up to bullying by their husbands demanding that they vote for Trump." Clinton's former 2008 presidential campaign manager Patti Solis Doyle called Hillary's contention "wrong" and "unhelpful. To try to portray women as the pawns of men will clash with every woman's personal perception that she is the master of her own self. It won't ring true to women or to men. Rather than blaming...

    Survival tips for a world in which it seems only the sanctimonious survive: 1. When you’re caught and fired for Lying and Leaking, first throw your own hissy fit. 2.  Have your friends and possible co-conspirators join in your indignation by upping the amperage to full-throated distemper:Just don’t be surprised if people make fun of you: I thought it odd that nowhere in McCabe’s very wordy screed of how he’s just a victim of the Trump Train did he bother to deny the allegations. Instead he just deflects them by claiming victimhood and shifting responsibility to his former boss, James...

    TodayÂ’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) While the fake news media outlets like CNN and MSNBC spent all day Saturday trying to brainwash the public into believing Andrew McCabe is pretty much as pure as the Virgin Mary, and that he was fired for purely political reasons, itÂ’s important to remember the facts we do know about him: This is a man who has spent his entire career making a government salary, and yet somehow has managed to accumulate a reported net worth in excess of $11 million; - McCabeÂ’s firing was brought about via a recommendation from...

    House Intelligence Committee Republicans' announcement that it is ending its investigation of possible collusion between Trump and Russia to rig the 2016 presidential election because "there is no evidence" enraged House Intel Committee leaker Adam Schiff (D-Calif). "There's plenty of evidence that the Republicans refuse to acknowledge," Schiff maintained. "So blatant was the conspiracy that during a televised debate Trump brazenly signaled the Russians to reveal the 30,000 emails that Secretary Clinton had erased from her computer. And lo and behold, these emails started showing up in Wikileaks publications." "On top of that, the Russians punked Sec. Clinton by selling...

    We're all expecting and anticipating Hillary's descent into madness. Given that, I'm thinking a tie-in to Lady Macbeth might be appropriate. No time soon, perhaps. Months, years? Yet madness will overtake her I think. With apologies to William Shakespeare... At the beginning of Act 5 of Bubba Macbeth, Lady Hillary, who has apparently dropped out of the story is brought back upon the stage that we may see how she too pays the penalty of her crimes. The strong will that enabled her to defy her woman's nature has broken down utterly; left alone in her castle while Bubba is...

    Hat Tip: H. Gregory Badger Enigmas (1) Isn't it weird that in America, our flag and our culture offend so many people, but our benefits don't? (2) How can the federal government ask U.S. citizens to pay back student loans, when illegal aliens are receiving a free education? (3) Only in America are legal citizens labeled "racists" and "Nazis," but illegal aliens are called "Dreamers”. (4) Liberals say, "If confiscating all guns saves just one life, it's worth it". Well then, if deporting all illegals saves just one life, wouldn't that be worth it? (5) I can't quite figure out...

      For this year’s reenactment of St. Patrick driving the snakes out of Ireland… AG Jeff Sessions fired Andy McCabe. If this godforsaken island of perfidy is ever going to be habitable by decent men there are a lot more snakes that need a one way ticket out of town. But nice start.On another St. Patrick’s day note I feel I should warn those of you wandering off to a bar to celebrate the day with a beer and perhaps a wee dram chaser: along with the usual green brews this year’s on tap selections include a new “glitter beer”...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Down goes McCabe! Down goes McCabe! Down goes McCabe! – Sweaty swamp snake Andrew McCabe got his formal walking papers from Attorney General Jeff Sessions last night, one day before he turns 50 and his lucrative federal pension was about to kick in. Despite the buttoned-down bureaucratic nature of the decision, based as it was on an Inspector General investigation and a firing recommendation from the DOJ Office of Professional Responsibility, the fake news media went into full fakery mode, declaring that this firing of a single well-documented bad actor means that...

    This week, various schools across the country sponsored "walkouts" in memory of the 17 students and faculty members killed in the Feb 14th massacre carried out by Nikolas Cruz at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. In other schools students took it upon themselves to walkout without permission. New York, Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) warned school administrators not to punish students who engaged in unsanctioned walkouts, asserting that "it would be wrong. Threatening to discipline students for participating in the peaceful demonstrations is not only inappropriate, it is unconstitutional. Demonstrations against gun violence are protected by the First...
