That's a really weird priority. Why exactly?

"I am not employed there any longer and all my attempts to return to the college and the classes that I love have been unsuccessful."
Yes. Being a college science professor requires being in touch with reality.

Looks like somebody fought the law, and the law won.

I don't see this as that fundie. She admits that she wishes that she can just make anything she doesn't like disappear without any consequences. Who the hell hasn't done that?
Granted, I think her wishes are stupid. But I'd be lying if I said that I didn't have any wishes or daydreams that were stupid, irrational or unfair.
5/11/2012 3:45:32 AM
Yeah, I'm sure at least half you Freepers have dictator fantasies.
5/11/2012 3:45:38 AM
Sometimes I like to daydream about what if I became an American dictator. You know, just like the Romans used to do in the Republican times when things were getting out of hand, someone who was given absolute power for a limited time, with a life-time immunity for the decissions made while in office. It worked for them, and I wonder if it would work for us. Anyhow, if I became absolute ruler for a time, I think the first thing I would do would be to get rid of all fundies in positions of power. That includes judges, congressmen and civil servants. I would not spare anybody. Then I would ask former fetus if she had changed her mind about how well this works out.

To be teaching at a university you need a Ph.D
How the fuck did you get a Ph.D in biology while believing creationism?
5/11/2012 4:01:28 AM
So she admits to not doing her job on the one hand, and to wanting the destruction of American democracy on the other. Typical Republican, really. And that is why this country is doomed.

Well, I can certainly understand why she calls herself "Former Fetus."
It was the greatest accomplishment of her life.
P.S. Kudos to the technical college for firing her fundy ass.

Sometimes I like to daydream
Hmmm, I prefer Martin Luther King's dream.
5/11/2012 4:44:47 AM
Yeah, I have the same flight of fancy on occasion. Difference is that I daydream about things that would make life better.
5/11/2012 5:00:20 AM
Awwwww isn't that cute an airhead dreaming of being a dictator.
5/11/2012 5:45:53 AM
@alex: by being discreet and parroting the lessons, i assume.
also, don't fundies usually bash the romans?
after rereading this, maybe she's OEC, and not YEC...

"Like my husband likes to remind me, I am not employed there any longer and all my attempts to return to the college and the classes that I love have been unsuccessful."
I can't imagine why that might be.
"Sometimes I like to daydream about what if I became an American dictator. You know, just like the Romans used to do in the Republican times when things were getting out of hand, someone who was given absolute power for a limited time, with a life-time immunity for the decissions made while in office. It worked for them, and I wonder if it would work for us."
You know the Romans has a bit of a fetish for assassinating pretty much anyone in just about any office, particularly the highest ones, when they went too far, right? Just because you were the Dictator didn't mean that you weren't still accountable for your actions.
"Anyhow, if I became absolute ruler for a time, I think the first thing I would do (after overturning Roe vs. Wade) would be to get rid of all judges. I would hold special elections to replace them, but I would not spare anybody!"
And when your successor comes along and either undoes everything that you've done, or simply does a whole bunch of shit that you really don't like, then what?

I am not employed there any longer and all my attempts to return to the college and the classes that I love have been unsuccessful.
Gee I wonder why? Maybe Ben Stein was right. Or you're a complete idiot. One of those.
It worked for them, and I wonder if it would work for us.
No. No, it wouldn't. Funny how conservatives claim to all be in favor of freedom and upholding the Constitution, yet they dream about a fascist dictatorship.
5/11/2012 6:32:52 AM
They're not even hiding the fact that they're authoritarians anymore.
5/11/2012 6:35:50 AM
She still thinks like a fetus...I don't think her brain grew beyond that point.
And, uh, Ms. Fetus...we're all former fetuses...nothin' special...we didn't grow from trees or sprout from cabbage patches.
5/11/2012 6:37:38 AM
*Former* fetus? I think not. I think her brain has not progressed beyond the embryonic stage.
All the same, altogether too much of this brainwash is propagating out there. Too many of these types have been talking about resorting to armed violence if the election doesn't turn out *their* way. Quite a few have crossed the line to sedition, and I hope something is being done about it.

I like how she calls herself "Former Fetus" as though that were somehow an argument against abortion.

Some universities, in the Unites States at least, allow non-PhDs in some teaching positions. Adjunct professors, for example.
Also, she said was at a technical college, which in the United States means a 2-year community college that teaches technical skills, often to attain certifications in those fields. And the majority of their instructors them do not have PhDs and sometimes not even a Masters.
Anyway, I do get your point. She comes off more as someone who teaches biology in a small-town high school.

And the third thing she'd do is round up all the Jews and send them to the gas ovens.
5/11/2012 7:20:49 AM
Is this person serious? It's like a 5-year-old girl's Princess fantasy, if you replaced Princess with Fuhrer.

Except that ancient democracy, though very imperfect, was in many respects much more democratic than our own.
The term for a dictator was 1 year, his powers not absolute, and the other public offices, most importantly the tribunes of the people, also had immunities, so no, you could no do a purge.
Furthermore, it worked as intended maybe once, during the punic wars. After that, dictators came to power thanks to the army or counter-coups, and basically killed their enemies and gave opponents' land to supporters. More Mugabe's Zimbabwe than modern democracy, really.
5/11/2012 7:46:23 AM
You do know things seldom ever end well for dictators, right?
5/11/2012 8:04:18 AM
Lying for Jesus, delusions of grandeur AND revenge fantasies. I wonder if there is a psychologist who randomly browses Free Republic, carefully documenting the myriad participants for a thesis or ten.
