AWD’s favorite line from the movie “Trading Places” was when Louis Winthorpe (played by Dan Akroyd) said of Eddie Murphy, “He’s probably wearing my Harvard tie…like, oh sure, HE went to Harvard!” What an a**hole! And a perfect representation to the rich communist bastids that infect Harvard and the Ivy League universities.
Texas Senator and conservative superstar Ted Cruz had the unmitigated audacity to tell the truth about the comm-a-nists at Hah-vahd. He accused the Harvard Law School faculty of having had “twelve” Communists who “believed in the overthrow of the U.S. Government” on its faculty when he attended in the early nineties. Oops! No more Grey Poupon for you, Senator!
Well, the upper-crust brats at Harvard didn’t take kindly to Senator Cruz speaking the truth. The Harvard Crimson student newspaper said:
If you think Harvard is a revolutionary communist hotbed, don’t apply. If you think Harvard is full of “pinheaded” professors, don’t enroll. And if you think Harvard pollutes the minds of its students, don’t walk out of here with a degree—and certainly don’t get two.
They left out “if you want to learn how to balance a checkbook, don’t apply at Harvard! Or any other Ivy League snob-a-torium that knows a lot about theory but nothing about reality! The cabinets of the past several administrations have been filled with Ivy League-tards who have fancy degrees but can’t piss and hit Earth in the real world!
Ivy League universities are really no different than other universities, except the students are hairy and smell worse. Most come from rich, well-connected families who can get their spoiled, worthless brat offspring accepted knowing they don’t have the skills to deliver pizzas. The other group accepted into Ivy League schools are Affirmative Action losers who couldn’t get into a community college in their towns without preferred pigment.
Duke University is called “the Ivy League of the South.” It’s populated with rich, yankee kids from the bankrupt hellhole of New Jersey who weren’t either rich or connected or black enough to get into Hahvahd. So they go to Durham. AWD attended NC State (Go Pack!). My accounting professor also taught at Duke. Same material. Same lectures. Same tests. Only Duke graduates were supposed to be oh-so-better educated than the “lowly state universities.” AWD got an A in both accounting classes I took. But I was too sexy to be an accountant and accounting ain’t no job for a man.
The Harvard Crimson brats continued:
If only we could have spoken to a young, wide-eyed Ted Cruz, Mitt Romney, or Bill O’Reilly. We would have assured them that it was okay to be anti-intellectual, and that millions of people around the world do it every day. Although we didn’t share their dread of academia, we would have tried to make them feel comfortable with the lifestyle they were preparing to lead. We would have attempted either to disabuse them of whatever cognitively dissonant impulses gave them the urge to attend Harvard or, at the very least, try to prepare them for the potentially scary environment that awaited them. For one, we would warn them that Harvard has a few liberals.
It’s the “intellectuals” from Harvard and their ilk who have given America a $16 trillion national debt, Cash for Perfectly Good Cars, $1 trillion non-Stimulus Bills, ObamaCare and other disaster zone legislation that has piled mountains of debt on us lowly commoners who know how to make a buck and live within our means.
AWD will tell you one damn thing. Academics are losers! They never have made one dime of profit nor have they ever signed the front of a paycheck. They create nothing except politically correct claptrap that doesn’t work to indoctrinate rich brats who have never had a job. I would as soon hire a guy who has worked as a dog poop scooper in Waxahachie, Texas than some spoiled brat with a Harvard degree. Sure, every now a Ted Cruz squeaks out of Harvard without becoming a drooling socialist but, for the most part, Harvard graduates are no different than what comes out of UT in Austin or any other America school.
One thing AWD has learned. The rich take care of their own. In Dallas, SMU graduates are guaranteed high paying positions from SMU alumni because they play golf with their daddies at Dallas Country Club. If one is a minority or a member of the lucky sperm club, you’ll have no problem getting into one of the fancy big-name universities. Sure, you won’t know sh*t when you graduate but you’ll get big jobs you really don’t deserve ahead of those who have worked their entire lives to earn such positions.
George W. Bush was a C student at Yale. He would have been a C student at Harvard or Collin County Community College. But he had a wealthy daddy who had been the Director of the CIA. His disastrous results as President show that an Ivy League degree didn’t make him smart. Obama shows that the PC route into Columbia and Harvard don’t do anything for you except further indoctrinate you into socialist ideology.
Academics work in theory. ObamaCare is a perfect example. Oh sure, the libtards believe everyone should have health insurance…as long as it is paid for by the taxpayer. In reality, the only thing ObamaCare will accomplish is putting American companies out of business! Since the academics who dreamed up that nightmare legislation have never run a company or had to pay insurance premiums for their employees, they have no @#&*ing idea of how unrealistic ObamaCare is! And I’m still waiting for any of the academic geniuses to explain how moochers who receive free healthcare at hospitals and clinics today are going to pay for health insurance under ObamaCare!
AWD knows people who attended Harvard and other Ivy League schools. They weren’t any smarter than the rest, only better connected.
The wealthiest guy in my city is a plumber. He started a plumbing company and grew it by hard work and sacrifice. He can also balance a checkbook. He now lives in the largest house here and is very wealthy. But he drives a pickup truck. His tax dollars are taken to pay the salaries of professors who couldn’t turn a wrench at his company yet complain about his greed and the evils of capitalism.
Screw Harvard! Want American government to succeed? Fill it with businessmen who know how to create wealth instead of libtards who teach how to divest in stock funds that include firearms manufacturers! Haven’t the over-educated/under-smart done enough damage?
Here’s the Wikipedia entry about Ivy Leaguer Timothy Geithner’s education:
Geithner spent most of his childhood in other countries, including present-day Zimbabwe, Zambia, India, and Thailand where he completed high school at the International School Bangkok. He attended Dartmouth College, in the tradition of his father and paternal grandfather, graduating with an A.B. in government and Asian studies in 1983. He studied Mandarin at Peking University in 1981 and at Beijing Normal University in 1982. and earned an M.A. in international economics and East Asian studies from Johns Hopkins University’s School of Advanced International Studies in 1985. He has studied Mandarin and Japanese.
Geithner can’t even pay his own taxes accurately! His performance as Secretary of the Treasury proves he would have been a window-licker on a short bus if not for his rich, well-connected parents.
Screw Harvard! Screw Ivy League communist brats! Screw academic frauds who, outside of academia, couldn’t succeed as a line worker in the fast-food or janitorial industries!
Preach on, Senator Cruz! Expose the frauds for what they are! The fact that Barack Obama graduated from Harvard tells me all I need to know about the joint!
Go Wolfpack of North Carolina State! Go to Hell, Carolina! And Harvard? Kiss my big ol’ state university educated ass! And don’t bother applying at my company!
