Columbia prof calls anti-tax
Republicans ‘seditious’
and ‘treasonous’

Daily Caller, by Eric Owens

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 12/3/2012 1:31:36 PM

A professor of Indo-Tibetan studies at Columbia University in New York City, Robert A. Thurman, is hopping mad that Republicans are refusing to raise taxes. Last Tuesday, he decided to make a video about it. In the conspiracy-minded video, Thurman equates Grover Norquist’s no-tax pledge with the oath of office. He then charges that members of Congress who have promised not to support tax increases have a conflict of interest that prevents them from serving as elected officials. The oath of office that all members of Congress take, Thurman notes, states that officeholders will do their jobs

He obviously has gotten the parties confused that are seditious and treasonous. Isn´t it wonderful we have individuals like him in our universities who teach such tolerance. s/o

Indo-Tibetan studies at Columbia University? That will give you a good understanding of life in America.

It never ceases to amaze me that the left has been so sucessful in cultivating such a a dumbed down constituency that would actually advocate for raising their own taxes.
The mind boggles.

Not much credibility .... start off with a Columbia professor and go from there. I wonder if he even knows what seditious and treasonous mean cause he needs to look at the president and his treasonous party.

He is a liberal academian which means he doesn’t have to function in the real world just in his little bubble of possibilities.
Why would anyone care what a cloistered eunuch with limited skills and intelligence have to say, he teaches only because he does not have the ability to function outside academia. With a degree in Indo-Tibetan the only work he would qualify for in the real world would involve asking if you want fries with your order.

Indo-Tibetan studies??? I guess that prepares someone to be an Occupy Wall-Streeter and sit around complaining that they can´t find a job to pay their $100k student loan for going to Columbia. Why doesn´t he just move to Tibet and live there under Chinese rule, since it´s obviously such a focal point of his life.

I think his plan is, first be block captain then his brilliance will put him in a position with the ruling cabal where he can determine exactly who qualifies as having enough ´patriotism´ in the New America. These are the kind of insane, angry, zealots who show up every time a draconian dictator pops up. Nice job on the curious intellectual front, Columbia.

His translation of the Bardo Thosgrol offers no advantages over the classic by Lama Dawa-Samdup and W.Y. Evans-Wentz. Moderns can (and should) giggle at Evans-Wentz´s theosophy, but they could be led astray by Thurman´s unique translations. I very much distrust unique translations!

We should feel sorry for Professor Thurman. He is too stupid to understand that Socialism genocided Tibet. Bless his heart.

I am ever more convinced that the Fifteenth Dalai Lama will be an American Objectivist.

Your friendly neighborhood columnist has once again run afoul of Facebook’s elusive community standards. Now before you call up the preacher and put me on the church prayer list – let me assure the posting was neither unseemly nor ungentlemanly. This time I was censored for writing something about Rancher Cliven Bundy. I realized I had landed in the Facebook gulag when I tried to post our daily Bible verse. However, I was unable to post anything because Facebook had taken great offense to something I had written. “We removed something your page posted,” Facebook told me in a rather unpleasant message.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Rep. Colleen Hanabusa (D-HI) says her constituents are "frustrated and embarrassed" by Hawaii´s failed Obamacare exchange, which cost taxpayers $204 million and signed up only 8,000 people. On Wednesday, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) announced it will launch an investigation into Hawaii´s busted Obamacare program. "This is not a partisan issue, this is an economic issue," said state Sen. Sam Slom. Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie previously predicted "hundreds of thousand of people" would sign up for Obamacare in the President´s home state. On Thursday, President Barack Obama tried to rally Democrats to

Nearly half of American voters think the IRS targeted conservative groups at the request of the White House, and most want Congress to keep investigating the matter. The latest Fox News poll also finds 69 percent don’t feel President Obama has followed through on his vow to “find out exactly what happened on this.” By a 49-41 percent margin, voters believe the Obama administration “intentionally had the IRS target conservative political groups.” That includes 26 percent of Democrats, 52 percent of independents and 71 percent of Republicans. Meanwhile, 67 percent of voters want Congress to keep investigating the IRS until

Reacting to Sunday´s hate crime at two Jewish centers in Kansas City, Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) and Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) introduced today a bill to update the government´s 20-year-old report on hate speech in the media. The Hate Crime Reporting Act of 2014 would examine the role of the Internet and other telecommunications in encouraging hate crimes based on gender, religion, ethnicity, or sexual orientation, and would provide recommendations to address such crimes. On Sunday, the eve of the Jewish Passover, a 73-year-old man shot and killed three people at the Jewish Community Center

Report: Obama Considering Bond

Even though the number of illegal immigrants who have been deported through the courts has dropped by 43% since President Barack Obama took office, the Obama administration may enact administrative changes to allow bond hearings for detained illegal immigrants. According to the Los Angeles Times, this could result in "several thousand" illegal immigrants being released from jails and "could slow the pace of deportations" even more. The Times notes that the White House is scrambling to "ease the concerns of Latino groups and other traditional allies that have turned on President Obama in recent weeks" by trying to brand him

It’s pitiful that we’ve reached this point, but Obama’s account of this chat really is more credible than Cantor’s. O’s position on immigration is straightforward: He wants amnesty badly, partly for legacy reasons and partly because he’s understandably keen to legalize a few million future Democratic voters, and he’s hoping the GOP will go along so that he doesn’t have to do something risky like an executive moratorium on deportations. The GOP leadership’s position is anything but straightforward. They’re convinced that they need to pass some sort of immigration bill before 2016 or else Latinos will hand the White House

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No
