    KG, there’s actually a name for the practice of using obfuscating language to present old ideas as new research. The AGW crowd is eyebrow deep in it.

    • KG says:

      Prof. Harold Bloom (The Western Canon) nailed it when he talks about “the anxiety of influence” – the desperate urge to produce something seemingly new, free from the influences of past authors.
      Any drivel will do, provided it looks new…..
      No wonder academics hated him.

  2. Cadwallader says:

    She certainly drains the inkwell when describing her garbage!

  3. mara the deplorable says:

    We plebs are not supposed to understand it. These demented academics invent a “language” that only they can understand. It’s a power thing. And no doubt they have a buzz-word generator that they employ to save time. All bollocks!

    • Ronbo says:

      Exactly…We The People of fly over country who cling to God, Bibles and Guns simply do not have academia knowledge to understand such high intellectual concepts….Why peons like us will likely say, “It’s all a bunch of crap!”

  4. K2 says:

    The academy was taken over by SJWs decades ago and the right has done little or nothing about it. Presumably, they’re afraid of being accused of interfering with “academic freedom” which is a pretty laughable idea when you consider just how little freedom conservatives have in these institutions.

  5. The whatsit who of the whatever are you kidding me?

  6. Contempt says:

    Somehow I think it would be difficult to cheat on her examz. Maybe if a few advance copies were procured there may be a chance for something above an F. Or drop out and hit the road.

    • Ronbo says:

      I’ve often wondered why I’m so conspicuously alive when I’m alleged to have tried to terminate with extreme prejudice both Bill and Hill Clinton in early 1994….although there were two attempts on my life in ’95 and in 2015 an alleged out-of-control car ran into me on a crosswalk guarded by a stop sign (I survived because I was somehow ejected in the air and the car ran under me and not over me.)

      I can only conclude the Clinton Machine Murderers are losing their touch.

      • Pascal says:

        My guess is that you’re still alive because you don’t actually have solid evidence of crookedness as these others who were close to them surely could have. Why did Stalin send so many good apparatchiks to the gulag? Because the closer they came to him regularly, the more they posed a risk. The fearless leader wished to remain fearless, while millions stand in line to be allowed to be apparatchiks. Nobody is irreplaceable but fearless leader.

        OTOH, you surely serve as a warning to others of what happens to anyone might consider crossing them.

        • Ronbo says:

          You very likely are right. Pascal – the people nearest the king are more of a threat in his eyes than the patriotic Marcus Brutus who is motivated not by money and power, but only by love of country – and lurks in the Capitol with a dagger for Caesar hidden in his toga.

          You see the Caesars cannot understand such a man, or fear such a person since he is outside their experience in a life of crime…at best they think such an individual is a harmless madman and hence no threat.

          • Darin says:

            I have a buddy that worked for years as an accounts manager for a major insurance company.One of the things he was taught in training was how to read customers.
            He said the customer that’s in a screaming ,cursing, rage,is oddly enough not the one to worry about.Worst case you end up calling security on them.

            The customer that shows no change in emotion or even tone of voice however is the one to fear.They aren’t reacting,they are thinking and planning and there is nothing more dangerous than a person that stays calm and thinks things through.

            • Ronbo says:

              “Revenge” [murder] say the Greeks, “is a dish best served cold.”

              There is wisdom in what you say,Darin.

  9. Darin says:

    Reminds me of Engineerees -“A cellulose encased,manual marking transducer including alloy ferrule retained Buna-n marking eradicator” in layman’s terms-a pencil.

  10. “Class is part of the futility of reality,” says Debord. Marx suggests the use of Sontagist camp to read sexual identity. It could be said that the main theme of the works of Tarantino is the paradigm, and subsequent economy, of dialectic class.

    Abian[1] implies that we have to choose between
    poststructural construction and the modernist paradigm of discourse. However, the primary theme of Geoffrey’s[2] model of nationalism is the difference between sexuality and sexual identity.

    You read it here first. (Footnotes here:

    • Ronbo says:

      CASSIUS: Did Cicero say any thing?
      CASCA: Ay, he spoke Greek.
      CASSIUS: To what effect?
      CASCA: Nay, an I tell you that, I’ll ne’er look you i’ the face again: but those that understood him smiled at one another and shook their heads; but, for mine own part, it was Greek to me. I could tell you more news too: Marullus and Flavius, for pulling scarfs off Caesar’s images, are put to silence. Fare you well. There was more foolery yet, if I could remember it.

  11. Pascal says:

    Concerning academia, nothing has matched its surrender of the hard sciences due to venality and fear wherein climate change has been made King of the Sciences.

    And maybe because I’ve been posting with a sour note all day today, let me provide this counter-attack that may raise a smile or two.

    From the fever swamps indeed. According to the Telegraph today “In the UK, senior academics have said that advising women not to drink when pregnant is SEXIST and causes needless anxiety.” One concludes from this that men should also be warned against drinking while pregnant. Of course they should be; it’s only fair.
