Do UH Professors think like this?
I am asking my students to boycott your event. I am also going to ask others to boycott it. Your literature and signs in the entrance lobby look like fascist propaganda and is extremely offensive. Your main poster "Communism killed 100,000,000" is not only untrue, but ignores the fact that CAPITALISM has killed many more and the evidence for that can be seen in the daily news papers. The U.S. government can fly to dominate the people of Iraq in 12 hours, yet it took them five days to assist the people devastated by huricane Katrina. Racism and profits were key to their priorities. Exxon, by the way, made $9 Billion in profits this last quarter--their highest proft margin ever. Thanks to the students of WCCC and other poor and working class people who are recruited to fight and die for EXXON and other corporations who earning megaprofits from their imperialist plunders. If you want to count the number of deaths based on political systems, you can begin with the more than a million children who have died in Iraq from U.S.-imposed sanctions and war. Or the million African American people who died from lack of access to healthcare in the US over the last 10 years. I will continue to expose your right-wing, anti-people politics until groups like your won't dare show their face on a college campus. Real freedom will come when soldiers in Iraq turn their guns on their superiors and fight for just causes and for people's needs--such freedom fighters can be counted throughout American history and they certainly will be counted again.
Prof. John Daly
I would bet that over 20% of UH Professors think like this.
Republicans Calling a Decorated War Hero a Coward Devalue the Heroism of our Soldiers Currently Serving in Iraq
Even in the Orwellian world of American politics the events of recent weeks have been surreal. But despite all the arguing going on among our political leaders one thing has been constant and that is the overwhelming support among Americans for our troops in the field. Regardless of ones political affiliation or view on the conduct of the operation in Iraq, it is clear that all Americans support the troops, and all grieve equally when they are injured or die. Suggesting that only one side of the political spectrum is concerned about the well being of our troops is small-minded idiocy; clearly those who say or believe such a thing are profoundly morally handicapped.
It is clear to anybody who is paying the least bit of attention that the war in Iraq is not going well. Thus far 2094 American soldiers have died and more than 15,000 have been left permanently disabled. The war has thus far cost the average American family over $3000 and costs each family an additional $100 per week. The sole measure of success on the part of the wars supporters is that if we left now the country of Iraq would implode. Americans have rightly come to question whether this is an appropriate measure of success for a war that has cost us all so dearly.
But as the Bush Administration grows increasingly desperate they have come to adopt a strategy of questioning the patriotism of those with whom they disagree. It should be noted that 63% of Americans believe that the war is not going well, and that 57% of Americans believe that the Bush Administration misused pre-war intelligence to justify their preconceived plans of going to war. But Bush and Cheney are undeterred, grimly describing those who don’t agree with their policies as “deeply irresponsible, reprehensible and dishonest.”
Recently the Bush war marketing campaign has taken a further turn, suggesting that those who question the Administration conduct of the war undermine our soldiers in the field, that those who disagree with Bush don’t support the soldiers. Only19% of Americans support Cheney, 34% support Bush and only 40% of Americans still believe that Bush is honest. Those numbers seem to be sinking by the day as Americans are increasingly disgusted and appalled by an Administration and a Republican Congress that judges whether citizens support their own soldiers on the basis of who agrees or disagrees with the Administration war policy.
There is no doubt that we ask a great deal of our soldiers in the field, this has been the case throughout the history of our country. We have seen so many times that ordinary men are asked to perform extraordinary duties; those that go above and beyond are considered heroes and recognized by their country for their valor. Just over a week ago our country paused to reflect and remember, and to honor those who served our country in war. Veterans proudly displayed their medals, tokens of appreciation from a grateful country for their acts of bravery. Today in Iraq we have men and women performing those same duties on our behalf; some will be similarly honored.
But what message does it send to our soldiers in the field in Iraq, soldiers whom we are asking to perform extraordinary acts of bravery on our behalf, when their Commander in Chief who sent others to do his war service questions the bravery and patriotism of a soldier who earned 2 purple hearts in battle? When the Vice President (himself a recipient of 5 deferments) suggests that a much-decorated veteran who happens to disagree with him “lacks backbone?” When a Republican member of Congress suggests that that same decorated war veteran is a coward? Does it devalue the service of our soldiers in the field when they see that the Administration can so easily dismiss a war hero as a coward simply because he disagrees with them? Why should they be as committed to duty, honor and bravery as John Murtha was when they see that the Administration would piss on Murtha and his medals for their political purposes? Would the Administration do the same to them?
Just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse, just when you thought you had seen the worst of American politics, we’re treated to the spectacle of cowards like Cheney calling heroes like Murtha a coward. Orwell lives, but the last shred of decency on the part of the Bush Administration has long since passed. The Bushtanic is sinking, but as it was when Nixon went down the mood is not celebratory, it’s far more like mourning; mourning for our country, for all of us…for we brought it upon ourselves when we elected the incompetent bastard and his band of sissy-hawk warriors.
Thank God none of us have to look at life through the prism of Phil. The guy would have even told on his own Mother to get her sent to the Concentration Camp.
In a day when 50,000 Americans are killed in auto accidents each year, and 4,000 fetuses are aborted on a daily basis.
Phil looks at 2,094 American combat deaths as a political tool to get us out of Iraq.
Phil is definitely an ass. I bet you he has watched 1984 twenty times just for the nudity alone.
I have received medals including a PH, but I don't gloat over it as he does in low poll numbers that the President and Vice President have. Polls can be so easily manipulated its ridiculous, and Phil's reliance on them puts his whole argument in quick sand.
Dude, you're living in the past, or in make-believe or something. You use the military when it suits you then you chunk it. Do you know anyone that has even been to Iraq? Or do you get your tripe from the left wing looney blogs?
Phil, I hope your psych bills don't take up to much of your income this month.
No professor should ever pressure their students to boycott any event. That is not instruction; that is indoctrination. The state is not paying them to do this. They are here to teach not politicize. What this professor's students should do is report him to the following website that deals with this issue of professors trying to inculcate their student's with their own political beliefs while on the clock for the state.
Anyone who thinks that the energy companies are happy about the war is full of it. They are the last people who wanted our soldiers to "fight for the oil company's imperialism". The energy companies want stability of prices and supply with good but predictable profits, not the kind of volatility we have been seeing. Yes they want to make profits so does every other company, but do your research "professor" it was a lot of the oil company types who were against the war because of concerns about price volatility, and supply uncertainty. Our beloved professor obviously knows very little about the energy industry.
As for the healthcare comments this is the biggest joke of all. How many millions if not billions of lives have been saved by the technology breakthroughs in the medical field that were a result of the capitalist system. Drug companies, medical instrument companies, and private hospitals that pioneer ground breaking new methods of surgery do not invest billions in research and development just because they want to be nice, they expect to get a good return on investment like any other company, and we are all better off for it.
Why do you think people come from all over the world to get treated at the medical center here in Houston? It is because capitalism has created the most advanced medical system in the world. Our technology is #1 because of capitalism. I damn sure don't want to have my heart operated on in Cuba, or Canada for that matter. A lot of the Canadians go across the border to the US as cash patients to get better care because their system is so screwed up.
Yes unemployed people or those with low paying jobs with no benefits may not get covered, but anyone who has dealt with the nightmare of socialized medicine would never prefer it to ours, they would get a job with benefits so that they could have coverage. Look at the VA system or worse yet the Canadian system. You could be dead or permanently disabled before you get treated since you have to wait months just for diagnostic tests like an MRI.
Screw the Libs and boycott the socialist professors!
Our sane readers can detect sincerity. It's the liberals that go bonkers.
The French Underground didn't identify themselves to their Nazis, and we will not identify to you liberal Nazis either.
If don't like what we have to say. Stay the hell away. We don't want you to cry.
Karl Marx would probably tell this professor and anyone who agrees with him to lighten up on his rhetoric. Anyone who believes the kind of pinko crap this professor was spouting is residing on another planet with a different reality system.
It's not my fault you socio-communist-liberals get wood whenever you see Fidel, Chaves, Gueverra, Stalin, and Mao. I'm not responsible for your orientation. Blame yourselves.
I never gave the impression that the leftist Daly was a professor at UH.
