Confused professors shocked
schools are cutting their hours
to avoid Obamacare penalties

American Enterprise, by Marc Thiessen

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 1/24/2013 5:24:16 AM

Barack Obama is a former adjunct professor of constitutional law, and no group has been more solidly supportive of his liberal agenda than the professorial class. So it is a sweet irony that the latest group getting hammered by the mandates of Obamacare are … wait for it … adjunct professors. The Wall Street Journal reports: The federal health-care overhaul is prompting some colleges and universities to cut the hours of adjunct professors. [...] The Affordable Care Act requires large employers to offer a minimum level of health insurance to employees who work 30 hours a week

Welcome to my world. I lost my insurance this year because my premiums doubled. I also work at a school where teachers pay 4 cents for the same plan that would cost me $400 a paycheck. I have not had a raise in three years and only make $23,000 a year and he says he can´t afford insurance on his $40,000 salary. Poor baby. I didn´t vote for this boob but I am getting screwed non the less. You probably did vote for the idiots that thought the affordable care act was obama´s gift to America. You deserve it but I don´t. Glad to see that some of the pooh is finally splashing back on you guys.

My daughter was notified that she will be losing hours, too, at her hourly job. She makes $15/hour, with no benefits, and she´s trying to pay for school. Thanks, Obama.

Having worked at a major university for many years it´s good news to finally see these ivory tower elitists finally get the shaft. I´ve seen many of these part-timers (oops...adjunct profs). They teach a few hours a week but otherwise have nothing to do but come in late and wander around chatting with other do-nothings. And they get grad assistants to actually do the work of grading papers and tests.

It is stinging irony that the dopey professors who voted overwhelmongly for obama are getting what is coming to them. But it´s sad that smart people like posters 2 and 3 pay a price for the stupidity of obama supporters.

Most professors who lost insurance and hours are too stupid to understand their plight. One guy quoted in the article blamed his employer. Although it my conjecture, others are likely to blame the insurance companies, or maybe GW Bush. Few have the sense to understand that obamacare is a disaster for the the country and a setback for them.

Adjuncts are treated very poorly at the college where I work. The tenured faculty and unions could care less (that is a broad statement - not true of everyone but there has never been effectual support for people who often work very, very hard). The unions are blaming the college administrators and lack of state funding. They will not, simply will not, consider the effects of Obamacare. If Zippy says something it is taken as gospel truth.

It would be nice to think that there will be so much pain that a backlash against Zippy will start to swell. But this is part of the plan to get us all into a single-payer system. It is working. Makes me sick.

Forgot to add that, in my department, our adjuncts attend faculty meetings, serve on committees, plan with full-time folks like me when changes have to be made, etc. They will do anything to hang on to their part-time work. I take absolutely no joy in seeing them get the shaft, even though they bear some of the responsibility for not seeing through progressive lies.

What world are these people living in where they thought that university administrators were to be trusted? These teachers are probably adjuncts because they´re not competitive in the job market for tenure-track jobs, aren´t willing to move to another place, or are in fields where there are only one or two openings in the country for full-time employment in their area of expertise. Many universities have done away with tenure-track jobs entirely, of course, in order to avoid having to pay extended benefits. I have plenty of friends who teach part-time in universities (sometimes travelling great distances every day to teach at two or three schools). None of them expect to have any job security, trust any administrator--EVER--, or in most cases, expect to be covered by any sort of benefit package. They realize that they have gone into fields that have very little value in today´s marketplace, but love their subject matter so much that they will do anything to teach it. (They´re in the arts.) One of my colleagues lives in a dorm as a "faculty in residence" this year in order to make ends meet. These people put together a living as best they can and don´t EXPECT to be taken care of by their employers and never have assumed that they ever WOULD have such. These people are certainly in the minority. Too bad so many "professors" don´t have the same attitude. In the university where I teach, adjuncts are not allowed to teach more than 6 years, as this is what is officially allowed by one of the oversight organizations (can´t remember if it´s American Association of University Professors or not).

My Mom worked as an instructor in four year college for 20 years. She worked with capital W. Her field was business. And, in her day most of the other professors did their jobs too. No one was ivory tower dwellers. Then things changed. Affirmative action meant more watered down classes and Black studies, women´s studies, etc. That attracted the lounge lizards and smoke blowers. Today a good education in almost impossible to find at the same level as it was in my day. It is astonishing how little graduates know. Anything that shakes up the elites is good. Yes, I will suffer too. But my financial hit is nothing I am not used to. Elites will suffer double. This is not supposed to happen to THEM.

Didn´t you get the memo ? Insurance exchanges will solve all of your problems.
Some states are refusing to jump onboard.
Don´t get sick while the details are being worked out.

What would a Mitch
McConnell-led Senate look like?
Washington Post, by Paul Kane    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/17/2014 5:08:09 PM     Post Reply
It’s no secret that Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) don’t like one another. They battle regularly over legislation and their Senate floor fights over arcane-but-important rules have become must-see entertainment for senatorial insiders. According to aides in both parties, the two leaders have not had a one-on-one sitdown to discuss legislation (or anything else) since late last year. Nowadays, all business is conducted on the phone or in brief discussions on the Senate floor. Part of that feud is political – Democrats targeted McConnell in 2008, Republicans targeted Reid in 2010, Democrats

   

 



 
Jews ´ordered to register and list property´

Jews have reportedly been told to ´register´ with pro-Russian forces in the east Ukrainian city of Donetsk. They were also told they would need to provide a list of property they own as well as being ordered to pay a fee or face the threat of deportation. U.S. officials in Washington say leaflets bearing the chilling order have recently appeared in the city amid pro and anti-Russian protests as tensions rise in the area. It comes after Jews leaving a synagogue in the city of Donetsk were reportedly told they had to ´register´ with Ukranians trying to make the city part of Russia.United

The Problem with Rand Paul

In his column earlier this week, the Wall Street Journal’s Bret Stephens laid out his case against Rand Paul becoming the GOP’s presidential nominee. It was a powerful indictment and perhaps one worth building on. Mr. Stephens highlighted what he believes would be some of the obstacles facing Senator Paul, beginning with his long political association with Jack Hunter, alias the “Southern Avenger,” who among other things wrote an April 13, 2004 column titled “John Wilkes Booth Was Right.” The “Southern Avenger” said this: Although Lincoln’s assassin, John Wilkes Booth’s heart was in the right place, the Southern Avenger does regret that Lincoln’s

The following article is his remembrance of actress Ava Gardner.I was deeply saddened by the death of Ava Gardner. At one time, I guess I was about as close to her as anyone outside her immediate family. I first met her (I believe it was in connection with the filming of 55 Days at Peking) while lunching at La Puerta de Hierro Country Club near Madrid. She was at the next table. With an absentminded

Nothing to see here folks, move along. That was the verdict of Mayor Marty Walsh and Police Commissioner William Evans on the latest “performance artist” to plunge the city in turmoil. So what if they had to shut down the Green Line and “detonate” said artiste’s attack backpack Tuesday night on Boylston Street? “There was no breach of security,” said the mayor yesterday. Of course not.

At any one time hundreds of thousands of us are cocooned in pressurised cabins scything through the cold upper reaches of the troposphere. Soon enough, this figure will rise to a million: a million passengers, flown safely, if not always comfortably, across countries and continents, and with little call for comment. Before engines could lift heavier-than-air machines convincingly off the ground, any attempt at flight had been dangerous, and yet for hundreds of years, adventurers strapped wings to their arms, and leapt off hilltops and towers in the vain hope of flying. Even when a part of the science of flight

Max Blumenthal, like others on the far-Left, jumped on the July 2011 Norwegian massacre of 77 dead and 319 injured to impugn the counter-jihadi right. His screed, “Anders Behring Breivik, a perfect product of the Axis of Islamophobia” included this sentence: The rhetoric of the characters who inspired Breivik, from Pam Geller to Robert Spencer to Daniel Pipes, was so eliminationist in its nature that it was perhaps only a matter of time before someone put words into action. In other words, we three were to blame for the massacre. A year later, Blumenthal returned to the same theme, this time focusing

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it."

I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

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

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

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
