In Defense of Trump University

DATELINE:  State of Lower Education

Dumb America

As any professor of an American college or university can tell you, the attempts to lure students to Trump University by fudging facts or obscuring credentials is commonplace.

If you are going to dun Trump University for its recruiting of students, you are on a slippery slope.

Nearly every private college in the United States is fighting for students to sign up for their programs. If that means putting on a happy face to cover up unhappy faculty, then so be it.

Most colleges have secrets they hide when they take prospective students on a campus tour. Why would Trump University be any different? If Hillary Clinton is going to call Trump U a fraud, she had better be ready to label many more higher-learning places as something less than educationally honest.

The shrill Attorney General of New York is going after Trump’s school, but leaves unaddressed other institutions that have promised good jobs, a productive learning environment, and more, to unsuspecting students who have taken out large loans to pay for their education.

Colleges in America are now sausage factories and not places of liberal education. Heaven forfend: they hate that label. We are now in a revolution to make college a fancy vocational experience. You better have a high paying job and hands-on courses to make a fortune with that degree.

The truth is somewhat less glamorous, and Trump U merely falls into the mix of what has happened to the coveted degree that people believe makes them ready for big bucks.

The idea of learning and becoming well-rounded, a better person, died several generations ago on college campuses.


Law Learned from Bad TV Shows?

DATELINE: Dumb and Dumber

It only seems like fiction when your police are dumb and our political leaders are dumber.

On the Trump legal front, we watched as the Attorney General of New York on CNN today discussed the “facts” of the Trump University case.

For years the media has suffered legal folks begging off that they cannot discuss a case while active in the process. The people of New York have elected an imbecile to head their legal protection. By talking about a case in litigation, he has broken the First Commandment of law.

All Trump has to do to get rid of that case is now subpoena the New York AG himself as he has NOW made himself a witness as he has spoken about contested matters of material fact.

That will kill the entire case as the AG of NY will not want to be disbarred for inserting himself as a witness into the case….well, nobody’s perfect, but this maroon is sitting on his law degree.

And, your police continue to be vigilant—to a point. With the OJ Simpson case back on TV in a miniseries, some retired officer in Los Angeles revealed he had the murder weapon, heretofore lost evidence.

The cop should go to jail for withholding evidence from the defense. Is this at the time OJ’s civil case was going on? This Knife could if fact show someone else did it. Whether this cop was off duty or not he was in fact a member of the force at the time, LAPD has a big problem here. This actually supports the OJ dream team tag line that the LAPD withheld and planted evidence.

Whether it actually is, or not, OJ has beaten that rap. If the knife is genuine and does not have his DNA or fingerprints, then he was truly innocent. It’s only taken 22 years and bad judgment on the behalf of police.

So, we have our problems being compounded by the forces of law and order. They have learned their legalese from watching bad TV shows, or they slept through the coursework to earn a bogus degree.

It was never this bad for Jerry Orbach when he took down the bad guys every week on Law and Order.
