THIS IS ALL SO, SO SILLY … 

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again … institutions of higher learning should be free to pursue their destinies in the private sector, competing for the best and brightest young minds (assuming America still produces any of those) in a free market with private resources.

There is simply no place in higher education for taxpayer subsidization …

Taking colleges and universities off the government dole would not only save billions of tax dollars each year, it would eliminate ridiculous feuds like the one currently transpiring between the S.C. General Assembly and the University of South Carolina Upstate – a battle of competing views on homosexuality that has turned downright petty.

Here’s the debate in a nutshell: USC-Upstate is all about spending money on pro-gay propaganda – while the “Republican-controlled” General Assembly would rather spend money on, well, pretty much everything but pro-gay propaganda.

In response to USC-Upstate’s pro-gay propaganda, the General Assembly has symbolically cut small amounts of funding to “punish” the school. And in response to those “cuts,” USC-Upstate continues to push the envelope.

The latest?

Wow …

USC-Upstate refused to tell Campus Reform how much tax money is going toward this production, saying it would only respond when the outlet asked “how much money has been spent on heterosexual literature.”

Cue apoplexy among the leaders of South Carolina’s “religious right” in 3, 2, 1 …
