Now you know why liberals are "PARASITES."  This great institution has been taken over by far left think tanks who have no clue what Judaeo Christian law is and the Constitution is for that matter.  It is a joke. I like my state law school anyway.

Liberals do too many idol worships with illiterate people if you ask me.

Become an activist Leftist lawyer on the taxpayers dime

Christian Adams is reporting that elite and expensive law schools are promoting a program to graduate swarms of activist leftist lawyers at federal taxpayer expense. The U.S. Department of Education program, called "Public Service Loan Forgiveness," would result in unlimited numbers of students at the most expensive American law schools obtaining law degrees for free -- as long as they practice law to advance leftist causes.

Law schools like Georgetown are blatantly promoting the tuition-free ride:

"public interest borrowers might not pay a single penny on their loans--ever!" 

The program works like this. Law schools with a particular affinity for left wing causes -- count Georgetown, George Washington, Cal Berkeley, and NYU among them -- promise to pay a law graduate's student loan payments up to a certain amount, provided they are engaged in "public interest" law.

Because these school-sponsored subsidies to leftist lawyers often are limited to only ten years after graduation, the borrower-lawyer is forced to pay any loan payment after that. 

That's where the federal government program kicks in. The federal government program forgives the remainder of the loan, as long as the lawyer is practicing in left-wing dominated "public interest" law.

While the program relates to "public interest" lawyers, public interest law is widely understood to be the practice of law with left-wing causes. Conservative law students who wish to work for conservative public interest organizations are routinely denied access to school benefits reserved for leftist "public interest" practices. Conservatives wishing to adopt the label do succeed sometimes, but usually must fight an entrenched institutional bias against them at American law schools.

The program says employment with the government or a 501(c)(3) organization qualifies. The number of leftist 501(c)(3) organizations dwarfs the handful of conservative 501(c)(3) organizations engaged in public litigation. The qualification has the discriminatory impact of subsidizing the left.

Law school student organizations and "public interest" clubs are also nearly exclusively leftist in orientation, especially at the most elite law schools. You don't find many Second Amendment clubs on campus.

The federal program, combined with the ideological biases of elite American law schools, has created incentives to produce increasing numbers of leftist activists with law degrees who will then practice at groups pushing for racial quotas and discrimination, against election integrity measures, against the free market and any other of the foundation-funded anti-freedom causes. 

Under this program, leftist activist law students have no incentive to seek more reasonably priced legal educations. They will gravitate toward the most elite and most expensive law schools. These elite schools have conveniently drifted away from providing a traditional utilitarian legal education, and instead are heavy on curriculum designed to aid ideological activism.

And you, the American taxpayer, are helping their cause.

While reading an article on the Ludwig Von Mises Institute site today, I was suddenly struck by how closely it described how one might "understand Obama".  Since I've not been lately indoctrinated by our sublimely inadequate system of public education and am somewhat of a "loose cannon", perhaps our esteemed professors at the Harvard Law School could work with these few rules Obama follows to the letter and actually encourage critical thinking on the part of their students:

Rules of Bureaucracy
 
Rule #1  Maintain the problem at all costs!  The problem is the basis of power, perks, privileges and security. Problems, not solutions, are the basis of bureaucratic power, perks, privilege and political security.  Witness:  The War on Poverty, The War on Drugs, The War on Terror, The Global Warming War, The Class War, The Culture War, The War on Women; there's a war going on with  about anything imaginable!  Just name it!

Rule # 2  Use Crisis and perceived crisis to increase your power and control.  Well, one could go on forever inventing one crisis after another without outside assistance of any kind.  How about the radical Islamists?  Voila...the TSA appears ready to view the traveler in his or her entirety or worse yet, grope one in a manner that under normal circumstances would have the perpetrator behind bars and looking for a lawyer.  Need I mention drones?  Homeland Security profiles? Intimidation?  Threats? Governmental Agencies of all kinds standing at the ready to reduce one to a grease spot like an unwelcome insect at a picnic?

Rule # 3  If there are not enough crises, manufacture them, even from nature, where none exist.  Need I mention global warming, cooling, climate change, well whatever.  It's just too boring to go on with it.

Rule # 4  Control the flow and release of information while feigning openness.  Sorry, there are so many examples I can't even go there. In your dreams. 

Rule # 4a  Deny, delay, obfuscate, spin, and lie.  I know what you're thinking and you're totally busted. Enough said about that since so much has been said already it would be beyond redundant!

Rule # 5  Maximize public-relations exposure by creating a cover story that appeals to the universal need to help people.  Ah yes, social justice, cultural diversity, environmental sustainability, equality for all, everyone pay their fair share (ha ha), nasty old corporations and free markets, green this green that (I'm green to the point of nausea), go vegan (now I'm really green), and... don't forget the polar bears!

Rule # 6  Create vested support groups by distributing concentrated benefits and/or entitlements to these special interests, while distributing the costs broadly to one's political opponents.  Hmmmm, that's a hard one...Hollywood, the elite media, academia, the unions, ACORN, Soros, GE, Solyndra, etc., etc., etc. I'm exhausted, how about you?

Rule # 7  Demonize the truth tellers who have the temerity to say, "The emperor has no clothes."  Here we go...the Constitution, our Founders, Conservatives, Patriots, the NRA, racists, bigots, homophobes, Christians...let's make it short...anyone who disagrees with the Progressive (Communist) agenda.  I yield the floor to each and every one of you!

Rule # 7a  Accuse the truth teller of one's own defects, deficiencies, crimes and misdemeanors.  With this, we have much too much information to include in a post that would entice a reader to prevail through it all.  There's only so much one can endure.
 
The entire article, minus my feeble attempts at truthful humor will be found at:
http://mises.org/daily/5955/The-Seven-Rules-of-Bureaucracy

It's long, but excellent, well worth the read, and I sincerely recommend it. Too bad the Harvard elite will ignore such a forthright critique in their just so sophisticated analysis of the petty little adolescent tyrant who sits on his self-imposed throne in D.C. and wields the power of the entire federal government to the detriment of We the People, our Constitution and the values we hold dear. Our "leader" is an empty shell. How's that for a critique of the class and "Understanding Obama"?  Guess my grade would be a failing one, eh?  That's life.  I'll get over it.  I've managed to survive much worse!

Caroline May says not every Harvard Law School alumnus has a class devoted to him -- but then, Barack Obama is not just any alumnus.

According to the Harvard Law School course catalog, professor Charles Ogletree will be teaching a reading group called “Understanding Obama” for one classroom credit during the 2013 spring term.

“This reading group will focus on the way in which race, religion, and politics have impacted the development of President Obama as a leader,” the Harvard Law School Course Catalog explains. “We will explore his views as a biracial child, his time as a student at Harvard Law School, the successes and failures of his political campaigns, and the way religion and his views on faith nearly derailed his campaign. Finally, time will be spent analyzing the challenges he faces as president of the United States in establishing both his domestic and global policies.”

Obama graduated from Harvard Law School in 1991. He was elected the first African-American president of the Harvard Law Review in 1990.

Ogletree was a mentor to both Barack Obama and Michelle Obama while they were Harvard law students (now there's a suprise!).

In an interview, Ogletree explained to The Daily Caller that the reading group will deal with both the positive and negative issues surrounding Obama and his presidency.

“They’ll be reading both critical and positive issues about Obama -- of what’s happened in terms of the way the race and religion have been viewed during his candidacy, his presidency, and how it affects the larger country; and some other classic reading on issues of law and justice,” Ogletree said of the curriculum.

 

See!  That's why Harvard is Harvard.  In the real world, this group would be called the Obama Fan Club.

 

And considering the fact that it was Ogletree who hid the Obama-Bell video it defies belief that the reading group will deal with anything that could be descibed as a "negative issue," unless it is the criticism of the socialist-in-chief.

 

Easy "A"
