This makes zero sense…

There’s ignorant and then there’s just plain over-the-moon absurd. This professor from Chico State University managed to hit all the wrong buttons and firmly placed herself atop the list of most ridiculous people of 2019. Congrats! Check it out, via Breitbart:

A professor at Chico State (CSU, Chico) referred to President Donald Trump and the Republican Party as “poison,” and suggested that she and other professors use the “immense privilege” they have as “tenured faculty” to protect students who are offended by their classmates exercising their First Amendment rights. The instructor told Breitbart News that the First Amendment allowing the school’s College Republicans to “voice their support for Trump and — the Republican Party” is “intensely hurtful” to many students on campus.

Professor Lindsay Briggs, who without question doesn’t understand what the First Amendment is about, whined “The First Amendment protects our Republican Club students to voice their support for Trump and their support of the Republican Party. That is intensely hurtful to many of our students on campus.

Chico State — you have homework to do over break. Time to do an honest personal inventory and decide where you will stand as things escalate towards elections.

Briggs is, well, something else…

Just being a leech and drinking my socialist power juice while all these hardworking people show me how not poisonous they are by calling me names on the internet. Just another day in my glamorous life!

I needed a folder to keep all my love notes in 💕

The 1st week of class, I own my biases & tell students what they are. That way they can figure out for themselves if they agree with me or not. I tell them my classes build critical thinking skills & they are free to think whatever they want as long as they have thought it out.

So unlike many people’s presumptions, my classroom is a place to learn your own values and practice speaking up for your ideas. Hardly the indoctrination factory people seem to think it is. But then, you’d have to go deeper than tired attack points to understand that. Pity.

I don’t adhere to arbitrary codes of social conduct such a “politeness” & “being ladylike” or “being ashamed of my actions.” If that’s what you’re here to say, it won’t have an impact. And unlike Michelle Obama, I don’t go high because you go low. I will go lower. See above.

I was not born to be pleasing to others. I have an equal number of people who dislike me on the left and the right. My truth and justice don’t waver for popularity points. Love me, hate me, it doesn’t matter to me. It’s called self esteem and radical love of self. Try it.

White House Announces Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal

This could be a big boon for a number of American industries as well.

Published

Regardless of what you think of Joe Biden touting this latest infrastructure deal as a “win”, it sure is nice to see that our government isn’t completely and utterly broken in the 21st century. It took months of bickering and infighting, and more than a few moments of political pettiness, but it appears as though we may just have an infrastructure deal after all. President Biden announced on Thursday that the White House and a group of bipartisan senators had reached a deal on a $579 billion infrastructure plan. “It’s been a very long time since the last time our country was able to strike a major bipartisan deal on American infrastructure,” Biden said at the White House. Biden said he and congressional Democrats had to concede some on what’s known as “human infrastructure,” such as investments for childcare and spending on climate change. Democrats will instead look to pass additional spending in a separate bill through a Senate budgetary process called reconciliation, which requires only a simple majority to pass legislation. And, despite no one having seen the bill yet, Biden is confident that Congress will send it to his desk to sign in the coming days. The radical left will likely be the most disappointed in the bill, after having previously suggested a goal of a $10 trillion investment in climate change initiatives.

Miami Building Collapsed After Years of Sinking into the Earth

Scientists has determined the issue years ago.

Just north of Miami, in the nearby town of Surfside, there is a massive rescue effort underway as nearly 100 people remain unaccounted for in the wake of a residential high-rise’s collapse. That number was nearly double the early estimate, having risen dramatically on Thursday afternoon as more information became available to those leading the effort. The late-night collapse, which was captured on video by a nearby surveillance camera, appeared to be a sudden, freak accident, but new information seems to indicate that there might be more to this story. A Florida high rise that collapsed early Thursday was determined to be unstable a year ago, according to a researcher at Florida International University. The building, which was constructed in 1981, has been sinking at an alarming rate since the 1990s, according to a 2020 study conducted by Shimon Wdowinski, a professor in the Department of Earth and Environment. When Wdowinski saw the news that the Champlain Towers South condominium in Surfside had collapsed, he instantly remembered it from the study, he said. “I looked at it this morning and said, ‘Oh my god.’ We did detect that,” he said. But not everyone agreed with the assessment. Wdowinski said his research is not meant to suggest certainty about what caused the collapse. The building was sinking at a rate of about 2 millimeters a year in the 1990s, and could have slowed or accelerated in the time since, he said. In his experience, even the level of sinking observed in the 1990s typically results in impacts to buildings and their structures, Wdowinski said. He believes that very well could have been the case for the Champlain building in the 1990s, based on his findings. “It was a byproduct of analyzing the data. We saw this building had some kind of unusual…
