Leftist indoctrination centers long on cash, yet short on real value.
Michigan’s state constitution does not specify a value when it mandates the support of our colleges and universities.
§ 4 Higher education institutions; appropriations, accounting, public sessions of boards.
The legislature shall appropriate moneys to maintain the University of Michigan, Michigan State University, Wayne State University, Eastern Michigan University, Michigan College of Science and Technology, Central Michigan University, Northern Michigan University, Western Michigan University, Ferris Institute, Grand Valley State College, by whatever names such institutions may hereafter be known, and other institutions of higher education established by law. The legislature shall be given an annual accounting of all income and expenditures by each of these educational institutions. Formal sessions of governing boards of such institutions shall be open to the public.
Shall appropriate moneys.
How much? It could be $1 million each school, money for a truck, or other provision that ‘maintains’ in someway the universities and colleges in our state. But instead, we punish our taxpayers, and frankly our social norms by paying nearly 2 Billion a year for that which kills our culture and promotes leftist ideology.
And Michigan has Republican dominated Legislatures and Executive offices. go figure.
The slide into values negative programming was so obviously nearly complete when we discovered the University of Michigan was spending $85 million of our hard earned resources to promote a false vision of diversity.
Today, academia’s product is largely garbage – gender studies, twisted history, and pointless sociology spin-offs like communications and political science. Yeah, we need more students studying politics when they don’t even know that the Constitution says they can’t shut people up because their feelz has got the hurtz.
Sure, the STEM fields produce a few grads who are going to be more than mere cogs in the corporate machine like their marketing major pals, and some STEM research is useful, but don’t think STEM is immune from academia’s endemic idiocy. Why, the latest thing is how science is racist because…well, probably because these hacks say everything is racist and the weak-willed gutless wonders of America’s faculty are too scared to stand up and say, “Uh no, that’s stupid and it’s not a thing and stop it.”
Why we fund our enemy is a query that is clearly beyond my critical thinking skills. It is hard for me to understand why we would spend ONE dollar more than is constitutionally required to promote the filth that revealed itself as the only islands in our breadbasket to vote for the criminal Hillary in the 2016 elections.
Politics has meaning.
Are Republicans not elected to enact republican policies? Fairness in the legislative process is a ridiculous concept. The positions won by election, and the wins are supposed to allow one side or the other to demonstrate why THEIR ideas are better for policy and the health of the state. Giving the other side it’s agenda when they are out of power suggests there is VALUE to their agenda.
We know better.
