MORE ON THE NEW CIVILITY: Obama fanatic threatens to kill Arpaio.

A “fanatical supporter” of President Barack Obama is the prime suspect in an investigation into an Internet death threat against Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

Adam Eugene Cox, 33, was arrested in Tennessee Friday on an unrelated warrant for assault.

Working with MCSO, deputies in Knoxville, Tenn., served a search warrant and seized evidence from Cox’s home on Friday after an investigation into the death threat came to light in October.

In that threat, Cox stated Arpaio and his family would be killed, according to MCSO. His postings read, in part: “I plan to kill Arpaio first. He will be filled with a thousand bullet holes before the year is out. I promise you this. He won’t [expletive] with Obama. He will be buried 10 feet under and his whole family will be murdered along with him.”

Well, given the President’s extremist, eliminationist rhetoric, this sort of thing was bound to happen, I suppose.

HIGHER EDUCATION BUBBLE UPDATE: Free Courses, Elite Colleges.

Udemy, a company that allows anyone to create and sell courses through its online platform, has announced a new area of its site, called The Faculty Project, devoted to courses by professors at a number of top institutions, such as Colgate, Duke University, Stanford University, Northwestern University, Vanderbilt University, the University of Virginia, Dartmouth College and Vassar College. While Udemy is a for-profit enterprise, the Faculty Project courses will be free.

The goal is to “elevate the brand,” according to Gagan Biyani, Udemy’s president and co-founder. The company says it has no immediate plans to monetize the Faculty Project, and would never do so without the input and permission of its faculty contributors.

HIGHER EDUCATION BUBBLE UPDATE: A “Disrupted” Higher Education System?

The “disruption” of the higher-ed market is a popular refrain these days. Rising tuition prices and student debt have left many wondering if the current model is indeed broken and whether those like Harvard’s Clay Christensen are right when they say that innovations in course delivery will eventually displace established players.

What exactly those innovations will look like remains a matter of debate. One view from Sheryl Sandberg, chief operating officer of Facebook, envisions a future in which every industry will be disrupted and “rebuilt with people at the center.” . . . While amenities and services on campuses have been redesigned in the last decade with students clearly at the center, the core of the academic experience for students today is almost exactly the same as it was for their parents decades ago. While other industries have been able to find productivity gains without sacrificing quality, on most college campuses we still have professors at the front of a room or at a table with an average of 16 students in front of them.

The biggest — and fastest — savings, however, are to be found in reforming administration. Those will be politically more difficult, however, as higher education administration provides a lot of jobs for people who reliably vote Democratic, and who have a lot of free time for politics.

JAMES TARANTO: Alternative Certification and ‘Colorblind Racism’ — The sooner the higher-education bubble bursts, the better.

The higher education industry’s credential cartel is under financial threat owing to the necessity of state and local (and eventually federal) budget cuts and the increasing sense that a degree isn’t worth incurring a mountain of debt. It is under legal threat, too. There is a strong likelihood that the Supreme Court will abolish or severely curtail the use of racial preferences in college admissions sometime in the next few years, a possibility that led to gnashing of teeth at the New York Times editorial board. Thanks to the senescence of white guilt, explicated here Monday, it is also under cultural threat.

Now, as Vedder reports, there is a competitive threat as well. We can expect that the higher-ed industry will do whatever it can to crush this threat. The obvious point of attack would be to claim that the new skills tests have a racially disparate impact.

No industry loses market share without a fight.

USING BOOK-MENTIONS OF BACON TO PREDICT WARS: Two observations: (1) Is there anything it can’t do? (2) Uh oh.

UPDATE: A reader emails: “Historically, there may well be a co-relation to the phrase ‘to save one’s bacon.’ That, and traditionally bacon as a preserved food was a common military ration. Curiously, the Cold War, Korea and Vietnam do not register on the bacon-o-meter, possibly because ‘bacon’ in the modern era has largely been replaced by the word ‘ass.’ And because the Cold War otherwise lacked sizzle. The current spike in bacon references is probably a confluence both of the religious particulars of our current conflict, and this happy time of culinary liberation in which we dwell, when bacon is being embraced and celebrated in new and exciting ways.”

Meanwhile, reader John Scanlon writes: “Google Ngram on ‘liberty’ is pretty depressing.”

True, although “freedom” is somewhat better. Still dropping off, though.

FUEL ECONOMY IS FOR THE LITTLE PEOPLE: Obama Leaves Event Promoting Clean Energy in Motorcade of 22 Fossil-Fueled Vehicles (Video).

January 27, 2012

WELL, THAT’S PRETTY MUCH THE KISS OF DEATH, ISN’T IT? Biden visited DOE-backed, bankrupt green company.

Just as President Obama toured Solyndra LLC before that taxpayer-funded company declared bankruptcy, so Vice President Joe Biden gave a speech at Ener1, an electric car battery company that filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy today despite $118.5 million in stimulus money from the Department of Energy (DOE).

“We know what’s coming — you don’t have to be a fortune-teller to see where the automobile industry has to go,” Biden told Ener1 employees last year. “So why not? Why not have it made in America? That’s why we went out there and came up with $2.4 billion for battery technology.”

House Energy and Commerce Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee Chair Cliff Stearns, R-Fla., recalled Biden’s visit and the failures of Solyndra and Beacon Power earlier this year. “One bankruptcy may be a fluke, two could be coincidence, but three is a trend,” Stearns said in a statement today. “Our investigation continues, and we are working to ensure taxpayers never are never again stuck paying hundreds of millions of dollars because of the administration’s risky bets.”

Risky bets, payoffs to cronies, whatever.

Plus, Space Policy:

Gingrich should never have talked about a colony on the moon. His idea of loosening regulations and offering prizes to encourage private enterprise in space makes a great deal of sense, but it wouldn’t lead to a commercial colony on the moon, at least not for a very long time. The market would be primarily space tourism, satellites, commercial use of orbital space. He looks like a geek surrounded by grownups, not really a fair characterization but one that Gingrich invited.

On the other hand, Romney — who should have said the above — came across like a know-nothing on space policy, yet again.

WHAT’S HAPPENING IS THAT COLLEGE STUDENTS ARE BECOMING MORE LIBERTARIAN:

Even though on an issue-by-issue basis the opinions of incoming freshmen are becoming less conservative, the number of liberal students per se is not necessarily on the rise.

As students over the past couple of years have become more likely to self-identify politically as “middle of the road” (47.4 percent in 2011, up three percentage points since 2009), the percentage who consider themselves “liberal” has actually declined more than that of those who say they’re “conservative.”

Which makes sense. More here.

MEGAN MCARDLE: HOW RICH IS WARREN BUFFETT’S SECRETARY?

In sum, the presentation of these numbers is quite confusing, and I suspect a little bit of cherry-picking to maximize the invidiousness of the comparison. Ms. Bosanek probably does have a somewhat higher effective federal tax rate than her boss, and it may even be much higher. But if so, this is because she is a very unusual taxpayer–exactly the opposite of what is implied by comparing Warren Buffett’s taxes to those of his secretary.

Update: apparently, she makes $60K. So I gather what Buffet is talking about is comparing her federal marginal tax rate, including both sides of the employer tax, to what must be his effective tax rate, since there is no marginal rate of 17.4%. That comparison is beyond bizarre.

About as honest as I’ve come to expect. And let me add: What a cheapskate Buffett is. My secretary at Dewey Ballantine made over $50K back in the 1980s, and he’s only paying his secretary $60K today? Hey, Warren — how about focusing your redistributive efforts a little closer to home?

MORE ON THAT GINGRICH MOON BILL: Reader Jonathan Fellows writes:

It looks like the bill was introduced in the 97th Congress as HR 4286, The National Space and Aeronautics Policy Act of 1981. Title IV of the bill dealt with the government of space territories.

The bill had 12 cosponsors — both R’s & D’s, including Tim Wirth, Robert Roe, Charlie Wilson, Bob Dornan, & Ed Derwinski.

Yes, that comports with my (vague) memories from the time. I think he may have introduced it more than once, though.

UPDATE: It’s also sad to see all our punditry miss out on what Newt’s doing here — he’s pandering to the tens of thousands of space workers in Florida who have been, or will be soon, laid off under Obama. Honestly, this should have been the lead item: “Pandering Newt,” not “Daffy Newt.” Do try to think outside the storyline, people.

TEDX AMSTERDAM: Guns For World Peace. “The gun may be one of the most important instruments of peace and stability that we have in this world.”

UPDATE: Various readers object that he’s not talking about guns in the hands of citizens, which is true. But what he says is shocking enough to contemporary Euros, even if it is in accordance with their traditions. As Sanford Levinson has noted, though, their traditions are not ours:

Such analyses provide the basis for Edward Abbey’s revision of a common bumper sticker, “If guns are outlawed, only the government will have guns.” 67 One of the things this slogan has helped me to understand is the political tilt contained within the Weberian definition of the state — i.e., the repository of a monopoly of the legitimate means of violence 68 — that is so commonly used by political scientists. It is a profoundly statist definition, the product of a specifically German tradition of the (strong) state rather than of a strikingly different American political tradition that is fundamentally mistrustful of state power and vigilant about maintaining ultimate power, including the power of arms, in the populace.

In this, as in many things, of course, American elites often take their cues from the Germans.
