The University of Cincinnati announced last week that their president, Nancy Zimpher, has resigned to take a position in New York. I have several reasons for saying good riddance to this.
She did not lift a finger to stop University Hospital from performing abortions. There is only one other hospital in the Cincinnati area that does.
She has continued to follow a policy of gouging taxpayers with all the wasteful government grants that U.C. gets. These are both unconstitutional (10th amendment) and unnecessary. They’re unnecessary because corporations would provide adequate grants to do the research that is really valuable. But the way it is now, the corporations “piggy back” on taxpayer’s funded grants so that they don’t have to spend as much of their own money. If you don’t want your money going to pay for experiments that you find morally reprehensible, you can boycott the corporations which perform them by not buying their products. But you can’t boycott the tax man without leaving the country or going to jail.
Zimpher did nothing to stop the medical school from teaching med students the “benefits” of teaching children the “safe” way to fornicate themselves. If fact, she approved a recent week long series of events sponsored by a sexual enhancement product company at the U.C. Wellness Center called “Sexploration”.
Unfortunately, one of the leading candidates to replace Zimpher can’t be much better. She uses U.C.’s email system (paid for by taxpayers) to send us (employees) messages to pass on to our legislators in support of the same wasteful and morally reprehensible policies. Examples include the messages in support of the recent economic stimulus bill (and adding more on to it) and messages against Ohio legislation to ban cloning and embryonic stem cell research. It’s not just that this U.C. employee is on the wrong side of these issues, but it is illegal and unfair to use taxpayer’s money to support a political cause. Hopefully someone else will step forward to reverse this increasing trend to wickedness.
And yes, we do need another POTUS as well. At least if we are going to remain a union of states. Barack Obama’s wasteful spending, his intentions to prevent murderers of the unborn from receiving justice, his continuance of the bloody wars and failure to reign in our overextended military are just a few of the reasons that it is imperative to remove B.O. from office.
We have talked several times on this blog about his lack of proper citizenship credentials calls into question the very legitimacy of his oath of office. Should we obey laws passed by Congress and signed into law by this usurper? Should the members of the military disobey orders given by B.O. as Commander and Chief? I’m curious about what the other contributors of this blog would have to say about this. If you were in the military now, would you disobey your commander’s orders if they originated with B.O.?
