Unintended consequence!

Or something. Yeah, sure. What do you ask am I talking about? Well, the left’s recent realization that carrying a shit-ton of student debt will prevent you from buying a home. Now the left limits it to first time home buyers, but it applies to any homebuyer at all: if you have a student debt that is as big as a mortgage you have shown you are not a reliable debtor to most sane … Read more

L.A. Times misses the real picture

The L.A. Times has a short article titled Record number of educated women are ‘marrying down’, where they bandy the following set of statistics:

A record number of American women are “marrying down,” tying the knot with a husband who is less educated than they are, according to a new study.

Nearly 21% of married women in 2012 were better educated than their spouses, a threefold jump from 1960, according to the Pew Research

If this is for real, it is real sad

The Atlantic has an article about where young people today find themselves titled Highly Educated, Highly Indebted: The Lives of Today’s 27-Year-Olds, In Charts, where they ask and answer the question:

What are today’s young adults really like? For those who’ve spent too much time gazing into the dark recesses of Thought Catalog or obsessing over “Girls,” the Department of Education has a new report that offers up some enlightening answers.

Three of the … Read more

This is probably why so many of you can’t get a job

I have become convinced that college no longer is an investment worth making for most people. The simple truth is that not every degree is created equally, and it is more than what college the degree comes from. While many people are impressed when someone tells them that they have an Ivy League degree, I have to admit that I often have the opposite reaction. I have dealt with too many Ivy leaguers that were … Read more

Now that they have read it..

So, remember a few years ago when Pelosi was telling us we had to pass it to get the details about it and the CBO, given a nice pile of bullshit lies told us this thing would reduce the country’s deficit, AND reign in healthcare costs, AND get more people on it? Remember the days where a bunch of smug scumbag marxist told us that after passing the ACA on a strict party line vote … Read more

When you are deep in debt and going broke….

Double down n the shit that got your there? Really? Most people’s reaction is to reign in the spending to what’s absolutely necessary, and to get things under control, because being a homeless bum living on the street isn’t something appealing to anyone that has the mental acuity to avoid it. Sure, some people end up homeless anyway, but they do so usually because something is seriously wrong with them, mentally, and they can’t control … Read more

If you encourage them to act like dolts, they will

The other day I was having a conversation with someone that was telling me that we make kids grow up way too soon these days, and was absolutely baffled at how little this person really knew about what things really are like. When I pointed out that for countless generations, and millennia, due to the simple fact of life expectancy being low, kids became adults – they had their own kids, joined the work force, … Read more

Maybe it is this sort of shit that makes these leftists so enamored with collectivism

Nobody sane doubts these days that college has become an iffy investment, at best, considering the cost vs. return of practically most degrees outside the STEM, medical, economics, and legal (where they are actually now experiencing pain) fields, but there is even more to turn off sane people from pursuing a pricey and dubious college degree these days. These places are about the most intolerant of any kind of real diversity of ideas or opinion, … Read more

Brave new world, huh?

Stupid shit like this is why I hope life fucks over these kids as hard as possible. Seriously, can you be more brain dead than these morons when you find out that they engage in this:

Students at George Mason University (GMU) signed a petition early this month asking President Obama to listen in on the “private conversations” of all Fox News employees and their families. The petition, which was circulated on GMU’s flagship campus

This should be a national law!

Every once in a while some politician has a good idea that should be made law:

A Maryland state senator has crafted a bill to curb the zeal of public school officials who are tempted to suspend students as young as kindergarten for having things — or talking about things, or eating things — that represent guns, but aren’t actually anything like real guns.

Sen. J. B. Jennings, a Republican who represents Baltimore Harford
