MY Tax Dollars at work, educating the youth of NC...and the World at Large

Many people know I am NOT a fan of current residential State.  For lack of any other reason, the place is schizophrenic.  WHY would generally decent, God fearing, Christian, Moderates CONTINUALLY vote for ever more Liberal Democrats, right up to the point where our last Governor was metaphorically under Obama's desk, holding his 'cigar', and some of her Cabinet now work in D.C. for that idiot.

Our greatest gift to the world at large however, and by 'our' I include myself ONLY as a NC Taxpayer, our greatest gift is the greater UNC University System.  A group of 17 colleges and universities guaranteeing that Karl Marx is alive and well, and living in the hearts of graduates and attendees of the UNC System.  Being a good communist institution, they also seek to undermine anything wholesome or clean.

There are damned few Conservative professors in America, fewer still in the UNC schools.  So few in fact, that one of them was recently called out for BEING a Conservative, and for speaking his mind on Conservative topics, and for saying Marriage should be for ONE man and ONE woman.  One person went so far as to call him "an embarrassment to higher education in America".

Dr. Adams answer to this tick turd is a classic.
Dear Edward:
I want to take the time to thank you for writing and telling me that I should be fired from my position as a tenured professor because I am “the biggest embarrassment to higher education in America.” I also want to thank you for responding when I asked you exactly how you arrived at that conclusion. Your response, “because you insist that marriage requires one man and one woman,” was both helpful and concise.
While I respect your right to conclude that I am the biggest embarrassment to higher education in America, I think you’re wrong. In fact, I don’t even think I’m the biggest embarrassment to higher education in the state of North Carolina. But since you’re a liberal and you support “choice” – provided we’re talking about dismembering children and not school vouchers for those who weren’t dismembered – I want to give you some options. In fact, I’m going to describe the antics of ten professors, official campus groups, and invited campus speakers in North Carolina and let you decide which constitutes the biggest embarrassment to higher education.
1. In the early spring semester of 2013, a women’s studies professor and a psychology professor at Western Carolina University co-sponsored a panel on bondage and S&M. The purpose of the panel was to teach college students how to inflict pain on themselves and others for sexual pleasure. When you called me the biggest embarrassment in higher education, you must not have known about their bondage panel. Maybe you were tied up that evening and couldn’t make it.
2. At UNC Chapel Hill, there is a feminist professor who believes that women can lead happy lives without men. That’s nothing new. But what’s different is that she thinks women can form lifelong domestic partnerships with dogs and that those relationships will actually be fulfilling enough to replace marital relationships with men. I can’t make this stuff up, Ed. I don’t drop acid. Well, at least not since the late 1980s. But I promise this story is real and not an LSD flashback.
3. At Duke University, feminists hired a “sex worker” (read: prostitute) to speak as part of an event called the Sex Workers Art Show. After his speech, the male prostitute pulled down his pants, got down on his knees, and inserted a burning sparkler into his rectum. While it burned, he sang a verse of “the Star Spangled Banner.” I believe that stripping incident was almost as embarrassing as the other one involving the Duke Lacrosse team.
“the biggest embarrassment to higher education in America.”
“the biggest embarrassment to higher education in America.”
“the biggest embarrassment to higher education in America.”
There are 7 more examples, each one, more lurid than the last, go read them, it's quite enlightening.  And just for the record, I hate here just a liiiitle more here now.  Texas looks better allllll the time.

Anon, are you EFFING kidding ME!!??

First, and most importantly, when speaking of NC there is no 'you', 'ya'll', nor 'you'se guys', I'm not from NC and I have hated this place since 1 or 2 WEEKS after I moved here, 46 years ago. Unfortunately, my wife is FROM here, so here we stay, for now that is...Texas is ON the horizon!! The kids have informed her that they have ZERO intention of staying here post our D-i-L getting out of college in 3 years. Mama is 100% vested in her state retirement, she's young enough to draw that AND work for a few years to get to 67. AND she's about to take some teaching classes. Or about to teach Computer Basics at night, to get her feet wet. So she can work or teach computers in TX.

But I digress, given your insult of my status with regard to 'Q', lemme set the record straight.

Here are the finer points of "Carolina BBQ", as it relates to NORTH Carolina...

There are FOUR different types of 'Carolina BBQ', these schizophrenic MFers can't agree on HOW to cook a hog, nor on WHICH parts or quarters or whole hog is 'best'. Nor can they agree on how to sauce that puppy. So, in effect, there is no such 'thing' as Carolina BBQ. No more than there is such a thing as 'pizza' or 'chowder'. Those things vary from place to place, NC is split into 4 places. But those places are separated by distances of hundreds or thousands of miles. (as if any part of the noble swine ISN'T good for bbq!)

Traditionally the ONLY thing, in all of NC, that they BBQ is pig. IF you go into a BBQ place and they have ANY of the following, chicken, whole or ANY part, beef in any form...slabs, ribs, brisket, snouts, tails WHATEVER, any sausages, in ANY, form, made from ANY kind of meat or, hot or cold, cased, patties, or ANY meat other THAN pig whole or parts, the natives here in NC would call these people, Philistines!!!

They are Johnny's-come-lately, poseurs, fakes, and quite often here over the last 20 years, Yankees who, [enter your least fav Yankee accent here, for the quote] "...left up there, because of taxes and high prices..."!!!

As to 'sauce', as I said, there are four types. Eastern [vinegar based, a lot of red pepper flakes, a little salt, pepper and sugar], Western [ketchup based, vinegar, sugar, S & P in that order], Lexington [mix Eastern and Western, but lean on the vinegar], and WAY off below Charlotte near SC, they use the SC mustard based, PLUS some extra vinegar sauce.

Then as I said they go nuts on pig parts or whole hogs. Eastern is whole hog, Western is rear quarters, Lexington is Butts, and that crap they put the SC sauce on is anything meat from what I've seen. [I know a place where they have SC sauce on wild game BBQ...uh, yuck! game ain't go 'nuf fat for bbq'n]

NOW, I'm from Kentucky. IN Kentucky, we use a cross between Memphis and KC / St. Louis styles. Depending on where you live, the meat is cooks choice. In the 'down river' area [that's the Ohio River for those geographically challenged] Down River they used to grow a LOT of sheep. They grew them for the wool. This meant that you quite often had old sheep hanging out, who were too old for good wool. As with most BBQ, it's poor peoples food initially. They cooked what was cheap. OLD sheep was super cheap, so in and around Owensboro, KY they cook mutton BBQ. AND all the rest of the meats. Oddly, IMHO, they swap to a more E. NC sauce there.

Let me say, I am food guy. I didn't get this big from eating salads. I love good food, I've eaten a ton of E. NC bbq. But that's because of where I live, not because I like it best. I prefer the TX BBQ over everything I've eaten. And by TX style, I mean Brisket and German style Sausage, cooked slow over mesquite and oak, sauce on the side, served with Shiner Bock Beer, white bread, pickles, and jalapeno peppers.

Come own out Arizona.. we'll BBQ a Javalina fer ya

Schteveo said...

Aw crap Poots, that sounds so damned good!!! Mesquite, or live oak? I don't care, I'm not that picky, just cook it!!! I never met much porkage I wouldn't eat.

I was seriously thinking of getting a Wild Boar tag for this winter here. But then I got this 'lima bean'* in R my butt cheek, so it's probably not going to happen.

[I take various and sundry weekly injections for various and sundry maladies .... at some point in July, one of my T injections 'crystalized' around a nreve / nerve bundle... it left a lima bean sized knot in my ass, that has a nerve irritated and I have all the symptoms of sciatica ... my leg hurts from the hip joint to the top of my foot ... OK, I guess I'm thru pissing and moaning now...]
