University Psycho Babble Exemplar

According to a book written by longtime Florida A&M University professor Barbara A. Thompson, ...

Professor of Something Very Bad, Barbara A. Thompson

... Barack Obama is no mere mortal. He is, as she wrote, "Apostle Barack," sent to create a “heaven here on earth,” a post at PJ Tatler said Monday.

In her book, "The Gospel According to Apostle Barack: In Search of a More Perfect Political Union as 'Heaven Here on Earth,'" Professor Thompson says she was given this message in her dreams.

"Yes, Barack had worked tirelessly on behalf of the American people, especially those who elected him in 2008. His followers needed to re-elect him to a second term, so that he could continue to accomplish the promises he made, thus, realizing his vision of America as a more perfect political union or heaven here on earth,'” the book description at Amazon says.

"Then, as I began to contemplate ways to assist Barack in his 2012 re-election bid something miraculous happened. I felt God’s (His) Spirit beckoning me in my dreams at night. Listening, cautiously, I learned that Jesus walked the earth to create a more civilized society, Martin (Luther King) walked the earth to create a more justified society, but, Apostle Barack, the name he was called in my dreams, would walk the earth to create a more equalized society, for the middle class and working poor," she added.

I'll let an Amazon review speak for me, and, I am sure, for the entire rational world, such as exists.

1.0 out of 5 stars Barbara: Put down the Cool-Aid! November 9, 2012
I would have given this a Zero Star but that is not an option. Rather than waste money on this book, and fuel the author's next "dream," reflect on this wisdom from over 2,000 years ago:

"Do not blame Caesar, blame the people of Rome who have so enthusiastically acclaimed and adored him and rejoiced in their loss of freedom and danced in his path and gave him triumphal processions. Blame the people who hail him when he speaks in the Forum of the 'new, wonderful, good society' which shall now be Rome's, interpreted to mean: more money, more ease, more security, more living fatly at the expense of the industrious." -- Marcus Tullius Cicero

Don't miss the five star reviews!

Don't you wonder what the 1 star reviewers were expecting when they bought it?

Esteve said...

On second thought, after reading a few 1 star reviews, I don't think anyone actually bought the book or read it. Their logical reviews are probably derived from just reading the title.

Can we know where Barbara A. Thompson represents? I was thinking maybe we could send a sympathy card, or start a Novena for those hapless souls she presumes to represent. These poor souls need the help of God Himself to make it past this Cosmic Stupidity!

She got that right. He's Beezelbub, Lord of the flies and the Prince of Demons.

Such are the words of wisdom from a person that bought a degree at Walmart, when they purchased a picture frame.

Jess, I would rather believe that the "Professor" got her degree by answering an ad in the back of an old Mechanix Illustrated magazine.

And that is very likely where her book will be sold from as well.

Also, because of the subject of the book, it would not even be decent fireplace fuel. It would leave a terrible stink for a long time.
