Leftist geography professor at taxpayer-funded university rails at students over shutdown
9:35 AM 10/07/2013 Eric Owens Education Editor
Last week, a geography professor at the public, taxpayer-funded University of Wisconsin-La Crosse used a required assignment in one of her courses to wage a campaign against Republicans, blaming them entirely for the government shutdown over federal spending.
Rachel Slocum, an assistant professor in the UWLa Crosse geography and earth sciences department, sent the vitriolic email entitled government websites on Oct. 1, reports Media Trackers Wisconsin.
Here it is, unexpurgated:
Some of the data gathering assignment will be impossible to complete until the Republican/tea party controlled House of Representatives agrees to fund the government. The Census website, for example, is closed. Please do what you can on the assignment. Those parts that youre unable to do because of the shutdown will have to wait until Congress decides we actually need a government. Please listen to the news and be prepared to turn in the assignment quickly once our nation re-opens.

Rachel Slocum is a defender of free speech.
So write her and tell her what you think.
It’s funny how the scumbags love their goobermint more than life itself. Normal people don’t even notice this alleged “shutdown”. I sure don’t.
Her inappropriate and partisan introduction of politics needs no further comment. The take down of government websites, e.g., Commerce, NIH, Education, was unnecessary and deliberately added to the public’s inconvenience. It will be interesting how many problems are caused when they turn all these sites back on.
One prof related how the school tried to force them to accept a female in one of the positions. They were forced to interview only females for one open position. None of the females interviewed were qualified, and none were hired at that time. But the prof I talked to was mighty upset about the whole charade. It appears the university is now meeting their goal of placing unqualified people in certain positions.
Although I'll give 'em credit - a quick look around the website shows that UW-LaCrosse is exceptionally diverse and sustainable :P
In short, a whole lot of money has been spent to halt already-paid-for government in order to hold it hostage to things that the activists still want to buy.
Roughly 10,000 kids pay about $15,000/year (in-state) to attend this typical American university.
You mean parents pay don’t you ?
Of course illegals can pay the same or less in-state tuition in Wisconsin.
Chancellors can lower illegal immigrant tuition, Regents told

University of Wisconsin System officials said Thursday they can offer significant tuition breaks to illegal immigrants even if lawmakers approve provisions in the state budget designed to curtail that practice.
Wow! What a coincidence! I majored in Gender and Land Access in Mali!
“Clark University for an M.A. in International Development and Social Change”
Last two words says it all, another Obamaite.
The significant other is just as bad. You have to see the comments about “Arun” from U of Minnesota students. “Worst teacher ever”. “Do not take this class”. “Only wants you to write what he wants to hear”. “If you want to hear why Racism is wrong, but already know why it is. Take a course where you’ll learn something useful”.
I had a college Geography class in the 80’s. It was all about land use and survey technologies. Nothing at all about gender, race or orientation that I can recall.
I have a suggestion for her.
There is a bridge in Mali that she can study...
oh, oh, oops, nevermind.......

Mali ‘Islamists’ blow up bridge near Gao
Suspected Islamist militants have blown up a bridge near Mali’s northern town of Gao, the army says.
The bridge over the River Niger near Bentia is on the only route between Gao and neighbouring Niger.
Looks like something out of a Spielberg alien flick.
The WNBA was on the other night. I tried watching for the first time in a long time, because frankly, I'm not a big hoops fan but enjoy the technical aspects of the game.
Not this game though. About like I remember from last time..... watching paint dry. No wonder there's no one in the seats. If the gods of PC weren't paying attention, the league would have gone belly-up years ago.
I get occasional mailings from my engineering college ...populated 20-odd years ago by 90+% dorky white guys, and the last time I checked, it wasn't much different.
However, if you look at the pictures in the mailings, you would think that every engineer was either female, or a neutrally-ethnic male.
Also, every project was "Environmentally Friendly", "Green", or "Sustainable", rather than projects that are funded by, and further the interests of, evil corporations .... which is almost wholly the case. Plenty of stories about cute and fuzzy tree-hugging grants (directly funded by you and I) and not so many about the millions or 10's of millions in funding from Lockheed, Raytheon, etc to design better radar emitters and things that go bang.
Yes, this scumbag Rachel Slocum likes to pat black people on the head and show them how kind and wonderful and “selfless” she is to her inferiors.
Jane Goodall’s progeny with a male chimpanzee.
I did write her... to ask if her bio is a parody of an unhinged statist!
I see, she writes fiction!
