Summer vacation is over and like other area schools, the LTE campus of Glen Beck University has re-opened its doors. Clad in flowing academic robes and tea bag festooned mortarboards, the faculty has already begun delivering non-factual lectures on many of the favorite subjects at GBU, including socialism, revisionist history, climate science, socialism, big government, and constitutional original intent.
Recently we were treated to a handy list of influential proponents of the latter which included virtually all of the prominent Democrats in Washington (Pelosi, POTUS, Hillary, etc.) The pedantic lecturer will no doubt supply us in his next post with a list of occasions in which these folks have argued for state ownership of everything as prescribed by Marx.
Unlike USF and FSU, GBU does not benefit from ideological guidance and generous donations from the nation's billionaires and Birchers. Perhaps this explains the shoddiness of scholarship in many lectures as well as the cost-saving interdepartmental projects I have heard about like "Punching Down" (Sports and Poli-Sci) or "Designing Sturdier Bootstraps" (Arts and Economics.)
There are no requirements for acceptance into GBU. In fact, the less you know the better. However, some might want to visit the Newt and Callista Prep School for refresher courses in history and religion. All major credit cards accepted.
Lecture attendance at GBU is, thankfully, neither mandatory nor advisable, except for the devoutly paranoid. Or as a Jon Stewart substitute.
Wishing you all a wonderful academic year!
