World Net Daily reports on a new textbook, “Pediatric Nursing: Caring for Children and Their Families, which advises nurses to discourage firearm ownership and support gun regulation. This material is placed right at the beginning of the text, following the section on poverty and immigration. Learn a little bit about the author, Nicki Potts, HERE, and view info on the text HERE.
Duke University has jacked up the fees for all students in order to offer payment for sex change surgeries for students. This will now be covered up to $50,000 dollars.
This puts Duke University on the list of nearly 40 universities which cover sex change operations.
Students who are anticipating such a change in their life should strongly consider applying to a school on this list of universities, of which Duke counts itself near the top. Those who do not feel that they can afford to contribute to sex change surgery can also opt to avoid this expense.

Transgenderlaw.org also lists Universities which only pay for the hormonal support/maintenance of sex changes for students.
Extra issues to consider: Sexual ambiguity as a congenital malformation has risen with the use of hormonal birth control. Those children with such physiological difficulties currently receive medical assistance much earlier in life. This is particularly true of the population which has access to college education.
Students at University of Wyoming have been rallying against violence in response to a threatening Facebook post directed at activist student, Meg Lanker-Simons. This missive appeared on a Facebook page called UW crushes, in which students could post who likes Whom, and in what manner.
Last week, a post, ostensibly from someone of opposing ideology was directed at Ms. Lanker-Simons: “I want to hatef— Meg Lanker- so hard,” the Facebook post said. “That chick that runs her liberal mouth all the time and doesn’t care who knows it. I think its hot and it makes me angry. One night with me and shes gonna be a good Republican b—-.”
Lanker-Simons was catapulted into the public position of victimhood, where leftists often like to be. Problems with remaining there erupted when a police investigation revealed that the offending post originated in Lanker’s own computer while it was in her possession. It’s worthwhhile for readers to check out the image showing the victim allegedly replying to her alleged self. ;-)
The aspiring victim might be facing legal charges of her own, for generating a tempest in a teapot.
Meanwhile, the leftists are praising the good result of generating protests against (fake) violence.
Yes, the headlines become ridiculous when the social problems of leftists are self generated.
Everyone is losing their minds over what Tulane professor, Melissa Harris-Perry has to say in an MSNBC “lean forward” (bend over) ad. You can check that out for yourself at this link.
Harris-Perry says that in the U.S. we “haven’t had a very collective notion that these are our children.” “[W]e have to break through our kind of private idea that kids belong to their parents or kids belong to their families, and recognize that kids belong to their communities,“
Doesn’t this sound like Hillary’s book “It Takes a Village”?
There’s an idea put forth that kids are community property. This lead your inquisitive Pharmer to explore just how far this concept goes.
Now that Planned Parenthood and Obama are Out of the Closet for Infanticide, will the community have anything to say about this?
At what point of development does the baby become community property?
Will you be allowed to conceive without village approval?
Will the community direct when you should have an abortion?
How will this impinge upon the in vitro fertilization industry? What about those frozen human embryos and the eggs which are being harvested from aborted baby girls? Do they belong to the community?
If you deliver a baby, and the “community” thinks she’s an FLK will the collective be able to tell you to kill her?
Is the community going to insert itself between a leftie-gurl and her abortionist?
Update: Are you in the mood to call out the news media for their non-coverage of Kermit Gosnell, Planned Parenthood and Obama’s infanticides?
Pharmer dropped in on Politico just now:
We can see that the Politico has chosen to feature the Texas college stabbing story, but a search of the site reveals N O T H I N G about Abortionist Kermit Gosnell’s ongoing trial for serial murders of already born, near term infants. at his Philadelphia clinic.
Why the attempt to cover this up?? Understand that the leftist media has been scooped thousands of times on this story, which they resolutely choose to ignore. Perhaps it might highlight the Planned Parenthood advocacy of infanticide while lobbying against Florida’s Infants Protection law, and Obama’s own staunch opposition to the Illinois Infants Protection Act.
Has the Infanticide Jumped out of the closet too soon for the media to have learned how to make it look acceptable?
No Way!!!!! The Blaze and the Todd Shnitt Radio show have revealed an apparent Nursing School Obamanation! Dan, a 33 year old military vet reports being suspended from Ultimate Medical Academy, Tampa, FL, for showing Android Phone app, Gun Club 2, to a fellow student.
Is this for real? The story is that a female student complained to administrators that she felt a threat to her life due to the awesome sound of this phone app. Dan says the sound quality is pretty wimpy. Pharmer has the i-Gun app, and yes……… the sound from small phone speakers does not, in any way, convey the true sound of gunfire.
UMA Spokesperson, Linda Weldon, has assured everyone that UMA will not be commenting on this incident, which is good, because nothing is going to help the reputation of this school, which advertises itself as military friendly, after the word gets out.
Enquiring minds want to know that if a student is traumatized by the sound of a phone gun app, what good will she be as a nurse? How will she handle dementia patients, violent patients, or sex offenders in the various clinical settings?? Is she the preferred quality of student for UMA to send into the Obamacare environment??
One of those commenting at the Schnitt show was pondering whether the Ultimate Medical Academy should have accreditation with the Department of Veterans Affairs if they would allow a military veteran to blow 40,000 dollars and get within three months of graduating, only to expel him for playing a phone app.
Dan has obtained some G.I. Bill tuition assistance as a veterans’ benefit. Do avail yourself of the Shnitt link to see that he is NOT likely a waste of money. Would this suspension mean that UMA is burning your tax dollars??? A possible side story is that Dan might be experiencing backlash for objecting to fellow students cheating, and copying teachers’ test materials. Perhaps the Veterans administration would like to investigate UMA’s accreditation and use of G.I. Bill funds.
Administrators at Jesuit-run Boston College have sent out warnings of possible disciplinary action to students who have been passing out free condoms on campus.
Students have established so called “safe sites” on campus for distributing the prophylactic devices for males and females. As readers know, condoms and the premarital free for all is against Catholic teaching. While the administrators are not spying in individual dorm rooms for condoms and sex, they object to the public distribution at their institution.
One might expect that students who desired to attend a Catholic institution might have some respect for the religious sensibilities and teachings, even if they do not fully concur. But we have learned, from Sandra (the riveted) Fluke that some students attend these institutions for the purpose of tearing them down. The condom distribution is said to have been occurring since 2009. Perhaps the practice has become extremely overt, or perhaps an administrator finally mustered the courage to address the issue.
A Washington DC group, “Advocates for Youth, is donating $400 each semester for condom distribution at Boston College according to the Boston Globe.
It appears that the local ACLU is ready to jump into the fray. Perhaps this would not be so bad. If the Jesuits lose this argument in the legal arena, it might be a step towards smaller government.
If the ACLU can establish that penalties against handing out condoms in public at a religious educational institution, are unconstitutional then we can establish that laws against smoking in public are likewise unconstitutional. Remember…. condoms don’t stop the spread of HPV (genital warts), etc. In fact, new STI cases VASTLY outpace than new jobs AND new graduates in the United States, with an estimated 19.7 million new infections in 2008, says the CDC. This costs the nation $16 billion in direct health care costs per year. On these bases ‘Nanny’ Bloomberg and Michelle Obama would have to shut down their obsessive-compulsive meddling.
Boston College need not “discipline” the students for their undiplomatic and discourteous treatment of their educational institution and its traditions. Instead, the students could be “praised” online with video and verse, and in letters of recommendation, for their very public “concern” for the sexual health and availability of their fellow students. Particular attention could be paid to the students who pass out condoms in front of the church. That information would remain as searchable as the facebooks, resume, and other activities of the students, and help to track them into appropriate career paths. ;-)
Benson High School, in Portland Oregon has suspended, and may fire a pro-life teacher, ostensibly for his opposition to Planned Parenthood. Bill Diss, who has taught computer science and math in the public schools for 11 years, is known, and sometimes baited by the students due to his openly pro-life views.
The math teacher was escorted out of the school by police on March 19th, and is on paid leave, awaiting a possible firing. This is thought to stem from his refusal, in September of last year, to allow two planned parenthood employees into his classroom, because they did not have proper ID. They were supposedly there to teach an optional sex-ed class to the students. Mr. Diss also organized a protest at a school board meeting against Planned Parenthood’s presence in the school district. He says that he had kept his protests against planned parenthood outside of work until they were invited into the school to teach.
Another issue of contention was the use of Mr. Diss’s name on permission forms sent home to the parents of students, for planned parenthood’s teen outreach program. His attorney contested the misuse of Diss’s name as though he endorsed the TOP program, and demanded a retraction of statements on the forms. Since that time, the school officials have been sending notes to Diss concerning his teaching practices, and requiring him to attend various hearings. He has been told that his teaching contract will not be renewed.
According to US NEws, Benson Polytechnic High School is not doing so well academically.
Now Benson H.S. is down by one more math teacher. but who needs math when one can have planned parenthood’s version of show and tell? Poly-Technique!
Sister Marge Kloos, 54, of the Sisters of Charity has agreed to plead guilty to a charge of fraudulent voting. She apparently sent in an absentee ballot for Sister Rose Marie Hewitt, who had been ‘celestially discharged’ on October 4th 2012.
Is Sister Marge a democrat? Pharmer bets the Pharm on it. The Chicago native joins the embarrassing list of Catholic left-leaners who signed this Letter to John Boehner, which exhorts him to stop his cooperation with the “reckless Teaparty”.
Sister Marge has resigned from her position as the dean of the Division of Arts and Humanities at Mount Saint Joseph College, in Delhi twp., Cincinnati, Ohio.
Sister Joan Cook, president of the Sisters of Charity says that her organization is cooperating with the investigation of Sister Marge Kloos.
The article above informs us that 80 percent of NYC High School Students need remedial instruction in the basics before going on to college. In other words, they have to pay for additional education because they’re not being adequately prepared by the government funded education.
Three hours before Pharmer encountered the article, another reader, “SS”, had commented on a typo in the word ‘group’, (grouip), the mispelling of the word ‘nervous’, (nervus), and the use of “emersion” rather than immersion. Two of the errors were corrected, but the word “nervus” still remained at the time of this reading.
Were this a blogger, such as yours truly, who posts news on the fly, without the benefit of an editor, one might expect some errors. Journalists write for a living, and have the “benefit” of editors, who are supposed to review articles before publication.
Fortunately, CBS has a third layer of help from those who append comments to the posts. Thanks “SS” for your voluntary service to news readers.
Three Cypress Lake High School Students in Fort Myers Florida, have been suspended for disarming a fellow student, a 15 y o football player. The latter student, had pointed his loaded .22 pistol directly at another student on the bus, and threatened to shoot him.
The three students were suspended immediately, for 3 days, without a hearing. It is said that they will be permitted to go back to school on Monday.
The gunman is charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
Punishment and stigma is the consequence for defending the lives of others on school property. This is training for the new leftist order.
De Paul University, Chicago, has mismanaged itself into an untenable situation.
Kristopher Del Campo, chairman of the Young Americans for Freedom was found “guilty” of “Disorderly, Violent, Intimidating or Dangerous Behavior to Self or Others” and “Judicial Process Compliance.” This conclusion was reached at a De Paul University tribunal which did not allow Del Campo to have counsel.
That charge sounds so horrible!
What he actually did, was release the names of vandals who admitted to destroying a pro-life display that his group had put up on campus with permission of the University. His organization posted a copy of the university’s incident report online, just like THIS. <—- Click it!
We have not heard that the vandals will be expelled for their “Disorderly, Violent, Intimidating or Dangerous Behavior to Self or Others”, but that’s what is likely to happen to Mr. Del Campo, 13 weeks before he was to graduate.
So…… for giving out information which would have been public record in any other locality, Del Campo appears to have wasted six figures of tuition dollars to attend this university, which punishes the victims rather than the criminals.
Pharmer advises you not to similarly waste your yearly $32,000 tuition/fees, and $6,500-$11,000 room and board to attend this institution. You might wind up being flushed out of the university for doing what journalists and bloggers do routinely: pasting reports of crimes online. We’ve all grown up with the first amendment, and have expected freedom of speech. At the nominally Catholic De Paul University, it’s considered a crime to report a criminal act.
Frequently, private or ivy league colleges find themselves to be serving as the babysitters of spoiled, or sometimes mentally ill, children of wealthy individuals, or diplomats. These institutions attempt to keep the misdeeds of their wards hushed up as a service to the parents, who might return the favor with contributions to the institution well in excess of the tuition dollars.
This might have been the intention of De Paul University to protect the reputations of their benefactors and their income stream.
With the internet, and cameras everywhere, it is much more difficult to keep a lid on such things. The administrators of De Paul as well as their benefactors, need to understand that criminal activities cannot be expected to be shrouded in secret anymore, and that they cannot guarantee such complete protection to some of these “children” they are babysitting.
The situation of De Paul University, which finds itself punishing the victims instead of the criminals, results from a failure to connect with today’s reality, and it is likely to hurt their income stream more than the loss of the 13 spoiled brats involved in the vandalism.
At the Union Activities Board, it is felt that the students of North Carolina State University need a little spice in their sex lives…… and that assistance from the University is warranted.
Sick pic and story can be found HERE. Lots of people know these sex toys and incontinence stoppers exist, but does an institution of higher learning have any business supplying this stuff to students?
Planned Parenthood will be the organization, charged by the government, to teach sex to kids.
It bothers many people that pharmaceutical manufacturers spend 20 percent of their revenue on advertising to consumers and prescribers.
Why does it not bother them that planned parenthood, the tax funded abortion and birth control purveyor, is used to educate the kids in school, on behaviors that insure need for that organization?
Why also does it bother people that churches give an opinion on a social issue at election time, but it does not bother people that both Kathleen Sebelius, and Cecile Richards-of planned parenthood were out stumping for Obama.
Pharmer spotted a document coming from the Campus Progress brench of the Center for American Progress on the Student Loan Crisis, and felt compelled to respond:
Our government has been selling the idea that college education is an absolute necessity, and should be accessible by everyone. Naturally this has led to an influx of students, some of whom are completely unprepared for college level classes, and who have obtained government grants and various loans to enter school. Many have absolutely no intention of repaying the loans.
All things administered and/or funded by the government will increase in price far faster than baseline inflation.
Education and healthcare are prime examples of this.
The real problem is NOT that a private lender is willing to give a loan to a student and gets the student to agree to a specific payment plan and interest rate. The true travesty is that colleges and universities are so eager to sell useless degrees and propaganda to students which are actually detrimental to their employment future. Many of the universities are willfully inculcating helplessness. Students are graduating with no job prospects in their area of training.
The problem is also not with the existence of for profit educational institutions. It is that the government is paying for unprepared students to go there, or granting loans for the same. Without this government intervention, many of the most problematic educational institutions would not have even been formed in the first place. The education bubble will pop just as the housing bubble did, because loans were made to people who could or would not repay them. This could have been stopped by requiring a significant down payment to be coming from the students themselves. The result of the education crisis will be similar to that of the housing crisis: massive loan defaults and a broken industry, with increased joblessness.
The increase in costs to the students is being blamed on reduction in government funding for educational institutions. Some people don’t realize that the debt for educational funding is passed to the students when they begin working.
The students will pay for education one way or another, by working their way through, by paying loans, and by paying the taxes which support our educational institutions with their bloated infrastructures and administrations.
The one difference is that the TAXES which will support the colleges and universities are paid by ALL tax payers including those who cannot afford to go to college. For one example, the pharmacy techs where I work, could not afford to go to college when they were young, but they are paying taxes for the children of other people to go straight through four years of college on the government dime, or on government loans which will often be defaulted. Some of the techs have slowly obtained college education as they work, and one by one, they head off into new careers.
The American people, who worked their way through higher education, and those who are still unable to do so, need to be informed that THEY ARE EXPECTED TO PAY FOR UNIVERSITY STUDENTS WHO THINK EDUCATION OUGHT TO BE FREE!!!!
Nothing is free.
First of all we need to understand that college education is not for everyone. More than half of people don’t have the kind of academic acumen to get through a traditional four year program. They should be encouraged (never forced) to go into a career and education program that fits their abilities, instead of being propelled towards certain failure and crippling debt.
The solution is for the educational institutions to stop building useless infrastructure which wastes energy and resources, and to fire all of their excess/useless administrators. Our higher education has to be leaner and more cost effective. Too much of it is run by greedy, money grubbing, frequently leftist 1%-ers who need to be replaced by those who know where money comes from, and would be wise stewards of whatever funding comes their way. When these changes come about, the cost of education to students and to the tax payers will drop.
Currently there are private programs which pay grants to students to NOT go to traditional colleges, and go straight into industry. It’s an awesome experiment and may serve to tap the creativity of young people before the universities suck it out of them. Cultural education is being moved out of the universities and housed in on-line resources. Testing and internships or apprenticeships, have been added as university requirements to enter more and more professions which require high skill. This is evinces the failure of universities to provide the necessary preparation for real world opportunities. This provides a strong impetus for higher education to be “homeschooled” and obtained online.
In short, our creativity and inventiveness will only be preserved to the extent that we can escape governmental control of our access to educational resources and opportunities.
What happens when the city is looking at bankruptcy, and teachers strike for a raise? (Most others, who pay the taxes for teachers salaries, are taking a cut.)
What should happen is that striking teachers should be fired and new teachers should be hired. That’s too much to hope for in Chicago-town.
Click above for Bain’s analysis and advice for colleges and universities which are facing the financial crunch of bloated infrastructure liabilities. and fewer students able to pay the ginormous tuition.
Have you been watching the construction at your nearest educational facility over the last two decades? Did you see cutting edge architectural wonders with soaring entryways and huge heating and cooling liabilities?
With the economy in collapse, private contributions and federal and state funding being pinched, the higher educational institutions are in DEEP DOO DOO. Like so many others, they built houses that they can’t afford.
Pharmer sees universities receding, and the smaller private and online educational institutions taking over, as people look for more immediate value in their education.
There have been numerous theories concerning the motivation for Supreme Court Justice John Roberts to excuse the Obamacare insurance mandate penalty as a TAX, and allow Obamacare to continue its job of destroying personal freedom and the U.S. economy.
Here’s a theory that Pharmer has not heard yet, and it seems fairly plausible. Supreme Court watchers suspected from the way the decisions were written, that Roberts had originally opposed the insurance mandate, and that he changed his mind.
Pharmer suspects that Roberts was influenced by old establishment Republicans seeking to galvanize the Tea Partiers behind Romney.
This judicial precedent has inflicted widespread damage.
What should be the response? Conservatives will probably have to choose Romney in order to get rid of Obama. That’s an emergency.
The Tea Party should stay very active in removing crusty old establishment Republicans from their government posts at the National, State and Local levels in all subsequent primary elections. Pharmer intends to assist in this continuing effort.
7/2 Update: CBS claims to have sources ‘revealing’ that John Roberts changed his opinion one month prior to announcing the Supreme court decision. There is a claim that Justice Kennedy tried hard to bring him back into line with the conservative judges.
Of significant mention is the treatment by many that Roberts’ insistence that the commerce clause does not justify the insurance mandate is significant in the decision. In actuality, Roberts opinion on this is a Dictum, and, as such, it has no value as judicial precedent. Roberts provided exactly zero judicial protection against the further encroachment of government on our liberties.
The self flagellators wish to hang on Roberts’ words that the Court has no job to protect the people from their bad choices of governmental representatives. (Perhaps he desired to have George W Bush, who appointed him, classified as a bad choice.)
Roberts must bear personal responsibility for his own bad decision, and Tea Partiers hope to place it on the ash heap of history.
A reason for the primary school instructors to tell 10 and 11 year olds how to participate in oral and anal sex is for the sake of increasing sexual availability. The above article focuses on such an incident in Onalaska, Washington. The principal topped off at class on STDs with an explanation of the above mentioned procedures. School officials say she stuck to the curriculum.
Earlier exposure increases business for Planned Parenthood, which is why that organization has worked so hard for its position to provide sex education programs for kids in Kings County, Washington, and elsewhere.
At the High School Level….. teacher and four students arrested for sexual hazing.
