With Election Behind Us, A Return To Normalcy OR Let’s Get Back To Saving My Conservative Friends Government Job!

Thank GOD, now that the election is firmly behind us noted higher education expert Gary Gross and his also notably unbiased conservative political blog can get back to brow beating MNSCU and St. Cloud State University for daring to cut their budgets! That isn’t speculation. That will be reality within the next 5-7 years. President Potter and Chancellor Rosenstone have the ability to change that by rescinding the decision to cancel the Aviation program at SCSU. It’s without question that SCSU can’t produce all of the graduates it’ll take to replace the soon-to-be-retiring pilots. Still, they’re capable of being a significant part of the solution. When oh when will these damn leaders of higher education finally LISTEN to an unemployed conservative blogger who thinks government … Continue reading

Gross Inaccuracies: Government Jobs Are For CONSERVATIVES ONLY!

For some time now this blog has been following the highly amusing story of conservative activist and local layabout, Gary Gross, trying desperately to convince his readers that his friend, a conservative elected official and public university professor, Jeff Johnson deserves his government job at Saint Cloud State University. You see, despite all his other writings about how the super evil menace of government should be cut to the bone, Gross feels that perhaps an exemption should be made for Mr. Johnson because frankly he is super awesome and his government job is useful to the community [disclaimer: the aforementioned statement about the super awesomeness of Mr. Johnson's government job should in no way indicate that maybe government can create jobs]. [on a side note, … Continue reading

Gross Inaccuracies: “Help Me Save My Conservative Friends Government Job!”

Gary Gross, local conservative drone, really thinks that government ought to be shrunk because frankly it’s a terrible awful no good very bad thing. So bad that when he goes to get the benefits it generously provides him as an unemployed right wing blogger he has to write about his bad experience.  Now I know it seems odd for someone who hates government so much to literally suckle at its teat but believe me there is some logic behind it. I am not sure what it is but trust me it’s there. Anyway, in this latest installment of Gross Inaccuracies we find Gary once again fighting to keep government jobs despite his daily cheering for cuts to government in those very same areas. So, for … Continue reading

Gross Inaccuracies: But Government Doesn’t Create Jobs!!! Except when it does…

Do you remember when cutting government meant allowing the private sector to thrive? Government, we are told, only drains resources from the private sector and can never EVER create jobs. It is the mantra of every small government conservative and it is the daily reminder from unemployed conservative blogger, Gary Gross. Except today apparently: Also discussed was how the decision was reached. In the commission’s opinion, the public’s input was limited at best. The commission is putting a resolution that a) talks about the economic impact closing the department down will have on St. Cloud’s economic development and b) will call for a more transparent, public process. [emphasis mine] WHOA WHOA WHOA! How is it possible that making a government entity such as St. Cloud … Continue reading

You're A Racist, NO YOU'RE A RACIST!

Well that didn’t take long. Only days ago I felt the need to write a post agreeing with local conservative, King Banaian, that the rhetoric of an SCSU Professor calling those people who voted for Michele Bachmann racist because some idiot was putting up disgusting posters of Muslims around St. Cloud. Now I find myself needing to write another post because another local conservative took the rhetoric too far. Leo Pusateri, who sits on the Executive Committee of the Senate District 15 Republican Party, decided to not only chastise the SCSU Professor in question but then turn around and do essentially what that professor did, call an entire group of people racists. Additionally, if I were to equate any political ideology with racism, it would … Continue reading
