Yes, Really: Texas University Offers Degrees
in ‘Victim Studies’

I wish I could say this is satire. Sam Houston State University now offers degrees in “Victim Studies.” I guess ingratitude and chronic discontent are educational skills now? Thank goodness useless ignoramuses can now spend thousands of dollars to be indoctrinated into the worst of woke ideology and learn how the system is oppressive, even as they live a privileged lifestyle inaccessible to more than 99% of all humans. The American education system has become a blatant joke, but it’s not a funny one. From Sam Houston State University‘s website:

I'm a victim of the OBiden Administration's chronically bad policies. The study should include the victimization of the DNC's class warfare on American society.

Back in my day, before Sam got all uppity and became a University, it was named Sam Houston State Teacher's College.

I'm not sure this program is what some think. Huntsville, Texas is the home of several TDCJ (Texas Department of Criminal Justice) prisons, including the location where they do executions. The school has always had a large criminal justice department. I suspect that the victims they are studying here are victims of crime.

It says something about the people who would sign up and pay thousands of dollars for this. Do they really expect some employer to hire them with this 'degree' hung around their neck?

Considering that Sam Houston State University is located in Huntsville, home of the main operations of the Texas prison system, I'm sure that SHSU can find a load of "visiting professors" who will happily demonstrate how to create victims.

Sam Houston State University is famous for their criminal justice studies. The death chambers for the state of Texas executions are located in Huntsville, so the tie is logical. It's not a university known as a cesspool of lie-beralism (though all universities have some of that there days). I have to wonder if this (despite the snarky commentary of the author) isn't actually an extension of the criminal justice curriculum. Studying victims of crime is a definite angle that would help in the study of crime. I could be wrong, but, like I said, I have known a lot of people that have attended SHSU, and none of them came out as moon-bat lie-berals. So I will give SHSU the benefit of the doubt until I read more about this.

There is not much information about the author. This sounds like a knee jerk reaction from someone who is not familiar with this particular college. Being a Texan and living in the East Texas area, I would not have reacted in the same way to this course description. As others have pointed out, this probably goes with the criminal justice courses. It sounds like the author ignored the "crime victim" part. She might want to go see that new movie "Sound of Freedom" and pay attention to the roles of child victims of trafficking and pedophiles.

What exactly is “Bidenomics”? It’s a real headscratcher because Joe Biden — the individual it’s named after — can’t tell us what it is either. Biden wants to take credit for an improving economy — an economy he wrecked in the first place. He wants to claim authorship of a drop in inflation — inflation caused by his massively irresponsible $5 trillion in federal spending. And as Fox News points out, only the rate of inflation has fallen. Actual prices will probably never come down. Biden did nothing to bring inflation down. It was the Federal Reserve jacking up interest rates that has begun to cool off the overheated Biden economy.

The Biden administration is trying to ban real cars in favor of electric cars. It’s pushing unreliable wind and solar over reliable gas, oil and coal energy sources. All of that requires lots of lithium for energy storage and that makes us dependent on China. Meanwhile, the Biden administration also keeps shutting down efforts to mine lithium in America. (Snip) “In error”. It probably doesn’t help that there’s an eco-terrorist in charge of BLM now.

At a Jan. 26, 1998 White House event, with wife Hillary by his side, then-President Bill Clinton wagged his finger at reporters and said, “I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky.” If not for the stains on Monica Lewinsky’s infamous “blue dress,” he would have been happy to leave it at that. But called upon to provide a blood sample for DNA testing that summer, Clinton was forced to admit to a grand jury that yes, actually, he did have “inappropriate intimate contact” with Miss Lewinsky. In a televised address to the nation on Aug. 17, 1998, he confessed: “Indeed, I did have a relationship
'Feeling Right' About Morality 2 replies

“The seat of knowledge,” said William Hazlitt (1778-1830), “is in the head, of wisdom in the heart. We are sure to judge wrong, if we do not feel right.” What can “feeling right” about knowledge mean in a head stuck on politics, and what wisdom can come from a cold heart? How can “feeling right” connect to justice when the realities of being human are dismissed – as, for chief example, by progressives and fake liberals? At the heart of the matter, frequently though incorrectly framed as a conflict between liberals and conservatives, is the difference between ethics based on the politics of the day and ethics reflecting centuries

Joe Biden is obsessed with “firsts” — especially when it comes to naming minorities to positions in his administration. Biden has prioritized “diversity” over almost everything else, including merit, experience, and judging by some of his choices, intelligence (we’re looking at you, Mayor Pete). So it was no surprise when Biden announced that the new secretary of the Navy would be Adm. Lisa Franchetti — the first woman to lead the Navy and the first female member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. The backstory to Franchetti’s nomination, as told by Politico, is that Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin had two slates of nominees for Biden to examine, including two choices for

Let’s see how many old-timey words for “nonsense” I can squeeze into one article about 56 years of climate change balderdash. Soap-dodging prairie fairies have been ringing the Chicken Little climate klaxon for at least five decades. That means we are celebrating more than 50 years of “the sky is falling” horsefeathers. Every climate gloomster has one thing in common: when it comes to their grim predictions for the planet, they’re all batting zero. A lot of them also seem to ignore actual climate-related emergencies, like the ongoing train derailment trauma in East Palestine, Ohio, where residents suffered vomiting, rashes, nose-bleeds, and bronchitis as they watched their pets and livestock die.

Naive conservatives point to the leftist obsession with electric cars even while the grid is being moved away from reliable energy sources like oil, coal and gas, to fundamentally unreliable ones like wind and solar, and then point to the blackouts in California. “How is this going to work?” they argue, thinking that they’ve made a convincing point, while fundamentally misunderstanding (as conservatives often do) that they haven’t found a logical weakness, they’ve uncovered the enemy’s plan. Shoving everything into an unreliable power grid, especially personal transportation, isn’t a bug, it’s a feature. That’s the whole point of electric cars, and the proliferation of always

Two radical left “scholars” have crawled from underneath the rocks where they were hiding and are now openly advocating the end of “judicial review.” That’s the theory that the Supreme Court has the last word on constitutional issues and that all must obey their decisions—including, and especially, presidents. The doctrine dates back to the 1803 Marbury v. Madison decision, where Chief Justice John Marshall decided the ultimate question of power: is an act of Congress or the Constitution the supreme law of the land? But now, Harvard law Prof. Mark Tushnet and political scientist Aaron Belkin are advocating for something they’re calling “Popular Constitutionalism” to give Joe Biden the dubious authority

Donald Trump’s favorability among Republican and Republican-leaning voters has fallen from 75 percent in July 2022 to 66 percent in July 2023, according to a new Pew poll. Conversely, while only 24 percent of Republican voters surveyed thought of Trump unfavorably in July 2022, that is now up to 32 percent in the latest poll. Among the broader voting public, the former president’s unfavorability has remained largely stable. Whereas 60 percent of Americans did not hold a strong opinion of him in July 2022, today, that is only 63 percent following his legal woes. Trump’s favorability ratings place him in a similar league with President Joe Biden, who went from 43

The threat of legal action was made in a letter sent to Texas Gov. Greg Abbott by the Biden administration on Thursday. The barrier of wrecking ball-sized buoys, which was strung up earlier this month near the border town of Eagle Pass, was “unlawful” and violated federal law, the letter charged. “The State of Texas’s actions violate federal law, raise humanitarian concerns, present serious risks to public safety

You should pity czars. Things never end well for them. The reign of diversity czars began a few years ago when a violent drug-addled Black criminal was accidentally murdered by an idiotic white police officer ostensibly trying to subdue him. This rarely happens, thankfully. In fact, more cops get murdered by Black criminals than the other way around. And when Black criminals do get murdered by cops, the cops are usually Black themselves (though the left would say cops are never Black even if their skin color is black because, after all, cops promote white justice and not Black Justice).
