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.

Former IRS Official Lerner
Gave Interview to DOJ
Wall Street Journal, by John D. McKinnon    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 3/7/2014 5:02:44 AM     Post Reply
A former Internal Revenue Service official who declined to answer questions at a congressional hearing, citing the Fifth Amendment, gave a full interview to the Justice Department, her lawyer said. That’s raising questions among Republican lawmakers, who wonder whether her choice to talk to Justice reflects a lack of concern about the DOJ probe. They also question the propriety of letting her avoid questions by lawmakers when she is answering DOJ’s. The comments by Lois Lerner‘s attorney “cast further doubt on the seriousness of the Justice Department’s so-called investigation of IRS targeting, as well as the legal basis of Ms. Lerner’s refusal

This week, the Democratic-controlled Senate refused to confirm President Obama’s nominee for head of the Justice Department’s civil rights division, and already the history is being rewritten. Debo Adegbile’s nomination failed to go forward when Majority Leader Harry Reid couldn’t muster the votes he needed on a procedural motion. Seven Democrats — most, but not all, up for reelection — ensured the defeat. Reid has hinted that the vote was based on racism, and President Obama suggests Adegbile was being unfairly punished for having represented an unpopular client: Mumia Abu-Jamal, convicted of murdering Philadelphia police officer Daniel Faulkner. Nonsense. As The Post pointed

Last week, as the Obama administration scurried to remove the large quantities of egg that Vladimir Putin had deposited on its collective countenance, Michigan Congressman Mike Rogers commented that Putin was playing chess while Obama was “playing marbles.” I think that was unfair. Marbles are inherently attractive, and their deployment is an innocent pastime that has beguiled the innocent hours of many a boyhood. What’s more, playing marbles takes skill. What is happening in Ukraine is anything but innocent, and the astonishing incompetence on display in Barack Obama’s hesitant but sullen maunderings has been the opposite of skillful.

Obama proposes billions more for job

Despite spotty evidence that the billions of dollars spent on dozens of federal job training programs are delivering results, President Obama is proposing to spend billions more as part of his $4 trillion budget plan. On the federal level, the government already spends about $18 billion a year to provide multiple services to unemployed workers on everything from career counseling to job training and searching. About half that money goes to Labor Department programs. The White House, in pitching additional funding, is touting the efforts as a way to "equip" workers with the skills employers need, at a time when the unemployment

WASHINGTON -- One by one, President Barack Obama´s warnings to Russia are being brushed aside by President Vladimir Putin, who appears to only be speeding up efforts to formally stake his claim to Ukraine´s Crimean Peninsula. In the week since Obama first declared there would be "costs" if Putin pressed into Crimea, Russian forces have taken control of the region and a referendum has been scheduled to decide its future. Obama declared the March 16 vote a violation of international law, but in a region where ethnic Russians are the majority, the referendum seems likely to become another barrier to White

Solipsism. It’s a fancy word which means that you assume others see the world as you do and will behave as you would. It’s a quality often found in narcissists, people who greatly admire themselves — like a presidential candidate confident that he is a better speechwriter than his speechwriters, knows more about policy than his policy directors and is a better political director than his political director. If that sounds familiar, it´s a paraphrase of what President Obama told top political aide Patrick Gaspard in 2008, according to the New Yorker´s Ryan Lizza. More recently, Obama’s solipsism has been painfully apparent as

WASHINGTON — Contract negotiations are stalled for thousands of workers at casinos on the Strip and in downtown Las Vegas to the point where they may go on strike — and the sticking point is Obamacare. On Feb. 20, thousands of housekeepers, porters, cooks, cocktail servers, and others represented by Nevada’s largest union, the Culinary Union Local 226, voted to end a contract extension the workers agreed to last summer.

During a hearing of the House Oversight Committee into allegations that the Internal Revenue Service scrutinized conservative groups’ tax-exempt status filings unduly, Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) exploded at Committee Chairman Rep. Darrell Issa (D-CA). Cummings charged that the way in which the proceedings were being conducted were “Un-American.” In apparent protest, Issa then walked out of the committee hearing.

Meanwhile, Putin incredibly denied that any Russian troops are in Ukraine, and somehow President Barack ‘I-call-the-Russian-invasion-an-uncontested-arrival’ Obama actually thought it was a good idea to set up a lectern on a grade school alphabet mat when the entire world is seeing the consequences of his weakness.

Where Lois Lerner goes, drama follows. On Wednesday, the former IRS officer again invoked the Fifth before the House Oversight Committee. That precipitated a heated exchange between the committee’s Republican chairman, Darrell Issa, and Democratic ranking member Elijah Cummings, who called the hearings “un-American.” And that spat has become the story. No doubt that is exactly what Cummings had in mind. Because it distracts attention from the substance of the hearings — and from the questions raised by e-mails and public remarks Lois Lerner wrote, received or made when she was IRS Director of Tax Exempt Organizations.

WASHINGTON — Charles G. and David H. Koch, the billionaire brothers who are perhaps the best-known patrons of conservative Republican politics, are bespectacled and in their 70s. They look genial enough. But Democrats are embarking on a broad effort that aims to unmask the press-shy siblings and portray them, instead, as a pair of villains bent on wrecking progressive politics. On Thursday, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee is starting a digital campaign that will use Internet ads and videos, as well as social media, to tie Republican Senate candidates to the policies and actions of the Koch brothers.

President Obama strongly denounced the Senate on Wednesday for failing to confirm a top nominee to the Justice Department. In a statement released by the White House, Obama said Debo Adegbile´s defeat is a "travesty" and is based on unfair attacks. "The Senate’s failure to confirm Debo Adegbile to lead the Civil Rights Division at the Department of Justice is a travesty based on wildly unfair character attacks against a good and qualified public servant," Obama said.
