"The problem here finding the middle ground that works well in most situations. I am a professor. It is the time to of year where out of 1000+ students (yes, three zeros) this semester, one to three female students ~ plus one or two female significant others of my students or friends of students ~ will come into my office, close the door, bend low over my desk, and inform me that they are willing to do anything to pass my class or help a student pass a class.
."Fortunately, my swivel chair allows me to turn my back so I can face my computer to look up the student’s grade to begin the conversation of possibly extending deadlines, removing late penalties, or other measures of assistance that I offer to all students.
."I spend much of the term pointing out my delightful wife of 20+ years, my teaching for 25+ years, my kids, my grand-kids, the struggles with my weight, and other factors that serve both to express my delight in life and hopefully serve as a deterrent. It works because the numbers are down since I have started expressing personal aspects of my life. But there is this strange occurrence in the past where I was in trouble for reporting such an event and received a reprimand for expressing hatred towards a student. Where does your attitude leave me?
."Yes, men are pigs, much more frequently than women. Just look at public restrooms at the end of the day for verification. But piggish behavior (whether from the majority of men or minority of women) needs to be attended to. A safe environment needs to be safe for all. I have had to institute some strict measures that displease me greatly and annoy my students. As I explain to them, only one student in a thousand causes me problems so the other 999 have to suffer the consequences."

UPdate: According to Timster, comments below, John wrote this as satire. And to be honest, that is much more in keeping with the mindset of this man as I knew it decades ago. Can I just blame Yoko Ono for the Communist take as well? And we know that John never was the marshmallowy type, sharp-tongued and eloquent pacifist that he was.

Ed note: Gosh, there’s something SOOOOO familiar about the thesis contained in this piece…Hmmmm, let’s see…
Why yes, it appeared right here, just a week ago in fact, right in the midst of the ‘muuvmnt meltdown’ following Trump’s ‘declaration’ on Jerusalem, when everyone, his brother, his cousin, and everyone in between was in full blown screech mode that this development had no further significance attached to it other than as living, breathing, sweating, stinking confirmation that Trump is a ‘seekrit Joo’ pretending to be a blond-haired Gentile in order to fool everyone.
Please compare/contrast the thesis contained in this piece with what appeared here a week ago, to wit:
ed note: before everyone reacts and erupts with all the typical noise, please consider what may be the underlying strategic reasons for Trump doing this:
1. The ‘friendship’ that Israel has been trying to cultivate with the Arab countries–most notably KSA, Egypt, Jordan, etc–has now been put to the torch over this issue. The Zionist/Sunni alliance against Iran which Israel envisioned whereby Judea, Inc was then in the position of utilizing the militaries of the aforementioned Sunni countries as proxy forces against Iran has just come to a screeching halt.
2. Israel has now been put under the gun as all her surrounding neighbors are seething with rage, thus putting Netanyahu in the position of being forced to come to Trump on his knees begging for assistance and support, a situation which puts Trump in a much better position in terms of his much-discussed ‘peace deal’ between Israel and the Arabs.
But, naaaah…None of that makes any sense. It’s much easier to just say that Trump did this jes’ cuz he’s a ‘seekrit joo’
Post Script ed note ~ NB the comments of Ghaith al-Omari, described as ‘a senior fellow at The Washington Institute for Near East Policy’ which represents the NEOCON line, as WINEP is one of Likud’s many tentacles in DC, operating alongside AEI, JINSA, AIPAC et al.
As we wrote yesterday, regardless of what one feels about Trump, the man, we have to acknowledge that Trump, the President, has just done a brilliant move in forcing the long-overdue issue of Palestinian statehood front and centre.
