Busted! Iowa Rethugly Who Wants to Fire Liberal Professors…Has lied about “Hamburger University” Degree

A white-wing Republican who proposed a law to force Universities to hire a “conservative” professor for every Liberal” professor just got busted. The boy listed a “College” Degree on his bio…

Which turns out to be a course offed at a Sizzler’s Steak House for employees. AKA Hamburger University just like McDonalds.

Besides the fact that there probably aren’t enough “conservatives” with a PhD to fill said jobs…Why exactly does this clown think the government should be legislating people’s politics?

These Russia loving traitorous SOBs want to make this country just like the communist USSR.

No Markie – Hamburger U…Ain’t Yale… Or a College Degree for that matter

Busted: Iowa GOP lawmaker’s alma mater turns out to be company that ran Sizzler steak house

Iowa state Sen. Mark Chelgren (R) was forced to backtrack on claims that he received a college “degree” after his alma mater was revealed to be the operator of a Sizzler steak house franchise.

NBC News reported on Wednesday that Chelgren’s “business degree” came under scrutiny due to a bill he is sponsoring which would limit the number of liberal professors that state universities could hire.

Iowa State Republicans spokesperson Ed Failor admitted to NBC News that Chelgren did not actually hold a formal degree even though the Senate Republicans’ website said otherwise. The website has since updated his biography to remove references to the “degree.”

“This was a management course he took when he worked for Sizzler, kind of like Hamburger University at McDonald’s,” Failor explained. “He got a certificate.”

Chelgren insisted that he was not trying to deceive voters.

“This was not an attempt to inflate anything,” he remarked. “I didn’t concern myself about this, honestly.”

The Senate Republicans’ website states that the lawmaker “attended the University of California at Riverside majoring in astro-physics, geo-physics and mathematics.”

Chelgren said that he attended the school for three years but did not receive a degree. But University spokesman John Warren told NBC News that there was only a record of him attending for one year, from 1992 to 1993.

The Iowa Republican dismissed the discrepancy by saying that he had also attended “Riverside Community College.”

Chelgren’s Senate File 288 would require that state universities determine the party affiliation of professors and then implement a hiring freeze until there are no more than 10 percent more Democrats than Republicans or vice versa.

Chelgren has said that he based the bill on his own experiences with “liberal professors.”

Trump Lawn Jockey Preacher Exposed

The Chumphazoid Lawn Jockey who published the picture of Hillary in blackface turns out to have lied about his background…

He even lies about being a Kappa.

 

Trump-backing pastor busted by CNN host for lying about military service and attending college

One of GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump’s most visible defenders has admitted that he lied about his military experience and his college background after first stating that his church website had been hacked and someone else had posted the false information.

Pastor Mark Burns has been at the forefront of pushing the candidacy of Trump with black voters, only to create more controversy by first tweeting out a cartoon of Hillary Clinton in blackface before later lashing at cable TV host, asking about her “heritage”when she asked him about the cartoon.

Pressed by CNN host Victor Blackwell, Burns first admitted that he did not graduate from North Greenville University with a Bachelor of Science degree, before taking offense at the line of questioning and stating he thought the interview was for a profile and was off the record.

“I didn’t agree to that,” Blackwell said before again pressing Burns on his bio.

“This is not fair at all,” Burns replied. “I thought we were doing a profile and all of a sudden you’re here to try to destroy my character.”

“I’m not here to destroy your character,” Blackwell replied.

As part of their investigation, CNN stated that Burns only attended the university for one semester and that his claim that he served in six years in the Army Reserve was also false, with the pastor only serving a short stint in the National Guard.

Burns later released a statement on saying he had “overstated some details” in his biography because, as a young man, he wanted to be taken seriously as a  pastor starting up his new church in Greenville, South Carolina.

In his statement, Burns also said he was under attack because “I am a black man supporting Donald Trump for president.”

Best Educated Janitors…

Fresh on news that there are 21 million Americans out of work – there is the question of the undremployed–

Why Did 17 Million Students Go to College?

Two sets of information were presented to me in the last 24 hours that have dramatically reinforced my feeling that diminishing returns have set in to investments in higher education, with increasing evidence suggesting that we are in one respect “overinvesting” in the field. First, following up on information provided by former student Douglas Himes at the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), my sidekick Chris Matgouranis showed me the table reproduced below (And for more see this).

Over 317,000 waiters and waitresses have college degrees (over 8,000 of them have doctoral or professional degrees), along with over 80,000 bartenders, and over 18,000parking lot attendants. All told, some 17,000,000 Americans with college degrees are doing jobs that the BLS says require less than the skill levels associated with a bachelor’s degree.

Now I’ve said for a while that one the the great myths of the new depression is the existence of high tech jobs needing high education. At this point there are millions of college educated out of work or substantially underemployed. You cannot fix the roots of the current economic malaise by by generating more job seekers – no matter how well educated or qualified. The brutal fact is, very little of our current economy is actually dependent on new technology. Think of it this way – the leading cell phone platform is dependent on thinking and aa technology concept first developed in Xerox Labs in the 70’s. Very little of the development today of “new technology” is actually “development’ = it is actually execution against old technology. So if you trin them – what would this new legion of scientists and engineers do?

And there is the crux of the problem.
