#2 If I was one of these professors, I'd file complaints against these cunts every day or every hour if necessary.

#3 Where's the Governor? Usually the one who hands out the patronage jobs to fill the Regents seats.

#4 Wiki: In the military, a political commissar or political officer (or politruk, from Russian: политический руководитель, "political leader"), is a supervisory officer responsible for the political education (ideology) and organization of the unit they are assigned to, and intended to ensure civilian control of the military. From the establishment of the Red Army after 1917, these officers were almost invariably tasked to make sure the Communist Party of the respective country could count on the loyalty of the Army.

#7 Academic tenure

Tenure is a means of defending the principle of academic freedom, which holds that it is beneficial for society in the long run if scholars are free to hold and examine a variety of views.

It would seem the contract has been voided, Grom.

#8 The point is, Skid, a tenured professor cannot be fired unless he sleeps with students. And he can sue, if fired.

#9 Ah, /sarcasm.
Wait, when you say 'sleep with students' do you mean, like all nighters, or just a little closet romp?

#11 a tenured professor cannot be fired unless he sleeps with students. And he can sue, if fired.

That is, indeed, the definition. But when the position no longer exists, there can be no instructor filling it, tenured or not. And if the pay and benefits are reduced enough, while the teaching requirements are substantially increased, even tenured professors will wander off to greener and less stressful pastures. This actually happened to my sister, who is now happily employed elsewhere; she is no longer carrying the entire department’s courses after the university retrenched following a serious spending spree, and all the other staff left.

#12 As someone pointed out elsewhere, the interactions between male and female in close proximity have a way of turning romantic after a while.
Which might, per grom, provide opportunities to fire the palefaces.
