UD Professors (Welcome Back, Daniel of Arabia)

My sincerest apologies to my faithful readers, but I had some things I had to take care of. However I am back to blogging for this fine website, and I am ready to take on the most pressing issues.
The first thing I want to do is to give a shout out to my Problems in American Foreign Policy teacher for letting it be known his political leaning by 10 minutes into the first class. I don't know what kind of teacher this man will be and I certainly wish not to mark him with any kind of judgement. However, he is off to a wrong foot with me due to his first few commands.
After introducing himself, Professer JA Quintus listed some resources for us to get information on current events. NY Times, OK. CNN, sure. BBC, no problem. Washington Post, ehh why not. But when he listend the LA Times as a great source for foreign policy commentary, I knew I'd have to call him out.
I thought this was noteworthy, but then a freind of mine returned that night from his World Religions class exasperated as ever. He proceeded to tell me that his professor was as ridiculous as it gets. The man had a peace sign tatoo 1" in diameter on his cheek, 2 peace signs on his computer and a "War Is Not The Answer" sticker right there facing towards the class. Needless to say, my friend was in for a 3 hour lecture about how terrible America is. He was hit with the charge that Americans dont know how to love, that U.S. taxpayers are all murderers, and that many of the students in the class have ancestors who raped and killed his ancestors. The man claimed to be a pacifist in the most absolute form as well. How can this man teach a fair class in World Religions when he is so openly fanatic about these topics? Supposedly he is an easy A, but I'm not concerned about that. The man is clearly here to preach, and I worry for the minds who are in his class ready to be brainwashed. At least the University of Delaware isn't as liberal as many others, but with professors like this man it is climbing up the charts.
Anyway, it is good to be back and I look forward to contributing to this blog center as much as I can.

"Democrats plan to inject spirituality into agenda"

First of all, this "spiritual covenant" is the most ridiculous idea I have ever heard. But, we really should give the Democrats some credit for finally realizing that they're going to need to gain some support from the religious folks in order to win any future elections.

This "spiritual covenant" suggests that Congress should "gear all its legislation, tax policies, budgets, and social programs towards being "loving and caring for others." Wait, aren't Democrats always complaining about how we should keep religion and government SEPARATE? Furthermore, I doubt this so-called "spiritual covenant" would have tax policies, social programs, etc., that would be LOVING and CARING towards a conservative individual like myself.

On another note, to my fellow bloggers: good luck on finals, and congratulations to those of you who are graduating! GOD bless! ;)

Choosy Moms Choose Jif, But Not Kerry

Frivolous it may be, but this article made me laugh. In a nutshell: John Kerry is a diva.

Job market looks good for us college kids

From Reuters:

U.S. college graduates are facing the best job market since 2001, with business, computer, engineering, education and health care grads in highest demand, a report by an employment consulting firm showed on Monday.

"We are approaching full employment and some employers are already dreaming up perks to attract the best talent," said John Challenger, chief executive of Challenger, Gray & Christmas.

In its annual outlook of entry-level jobs, Challenger, Gray & Christmas said strong job growth and falling unemployment makes this spring the hottest job market for America's 1.4 million college graduates since the dot-com collapse in 2001.

The firm pointed to a survey by the National Association of Colleges and Employers which showed employers plan to hire 14.5 percent more new college graduates than a year ago.

The survey also found higher starting salaries this year. Graduates with economic or finance degrees will see the biggest gain with starting salaries up 11 percent to $45,191, while accounting salaries are up 6.2 percent, business management salaries up 3.9 percent and pay for civil engineers 4.3 percent higher.


Boy am I glad I am graduating this year

Illegal Aliens= 12 Million

Some interesting statistics from the article:

Of those living illegally in the US :
-they account for 1 in 20 people in our workforce
-since the year 2000, approximately 850,000 come here each year
-7.2 million of them are undocumented workers-- making up roughly 5% of our workforce

Some business owners argue that our economy would collapse if they had to do without these immigrant's cheap labor. Obviously they are willing to work for much less than the average American would (AND without benefits nonetheless), but we have to draw the line somewhere. I think cracking down on illegal immigration would HELP our economy. Just think about how much of the taxpayer's money goes towards incarcerating them and providing them (free) medical care.

Legal immigration is fine by me. I just find it ridiculous that we continuously allow these outsiders to mooch off of our goverment.

Another state to use their right to ban most Abortions

Mississippi's Haley Barbour says that he would likely sign a bill to ban most abortions in the state if it's approved by lawmakers. The bill has bipartisan support in a state with only one abortion clinic (located in Jackson) and a 24-hr waiting period. Also, minors must have the consent of both parents in order to perform infanticide. [More...] (h/t MSU Esquire and SmashLeftWingScum)

And in other news.. it seems that Molly Saves the Day has published a how-to manual for women in South Dakota that seek to have illegal abortions. Disgusting. (h/t SaveTheGOP)
