COME THESE FOOLS?
THE OTHER MONEY PIT
By: R.A. Hawkins
media has begun discussing the next financial crises, which they say is student loans.
This is the reason that Obama has started to pander to those who hold these loans with
offers of lowered interest and relief. In essence hes using tax dollars to create
voter incentives, but at what cost other than the tax dollars hes offering to waste
on their behalf because nobody is donating to his campaign? Thats just one question.
A few more relative questions include: What are we getting in return for this, other than
an attempted do-over with college kids voting for the do-nothing president again? Why do
we have all of these loans in the first place? My father swept floors to get the money
together to go to school.
when you dont agree with a professor you get your butt handed to you by that
professor. That is the exact opposite of what higher education is supposed to be doing.
Lets look at one of my favorite degrees out there that we probably have a lot of
loan money tied up in. Climate Change Impact Studies. Yes theres actually a college
degree like that. The very name of that degree program tells you that youre going to
have crap poured into the top of your empty head until they cant get any more in
there. How are these degrees useful? The UN Agenda 21 people love those degrees. As a
matter of fact any time you see some expert telling us about the horrors of climate change
see what their degree is in. Im talking about the signers of the UN scare papers.
Their degrees are always in Climate Change Impact, which has nothing to do with science at
any level. That means their entire education is based on a lie and that lie is the global
warming lie. They arent thinking. Theyre reciting. Tax dollars got poured into
that? Really? What a waste! This isnt education its indoctrination. And these
are the experts they always turn to!
The sad part
is that when these people graduate there are only a very few places for them to go to
work; either at a University cloning Mini Mes, or working for some radical leftwing
organization. They could always get a government research grant, but you get the picture.
The degree is useless, and is based on lies and flawed assumptions. I cant help but
wonder how many of these people will go off the deep end when they realize theyve
enslaved themselves with their own signature when they got those loans. The universities
have become the exact opposite of that theyre supposed to be. The Ivy League schools
are no longer the places where intelligence services seek out potential employees because
they have become dens of seething liberals.
We ended up
in this predicament because all employers now require you to have a degree in something,
but they dont care what it is. What theyve done quite by accident is
theyve turned a degree into some idiotic initiation rite. This is how education has
been dumbed down. Anytime something becomes widespread or required it gets watered down
just like whats going to happen to our healthcare.
So what we
have these days are people with useless degrees who are now accepted by some as experts. A
certain scarecrow comes to mind here. Its time to push back against the employers
who demand a four year degree for a forklift operator, and to push back against the
institutions of higher education that arent. Our present version of higher education
only teaches people how to pass tests and tells students what to think and what to say
instead of teaching them how to think. It used to be that if you didnt agree with a
professor he would ask for your thinking and then listen to what you had to say regarding
the subject at hand. If he agreed with how you came to a conclusion you got a pass because
when it comes to matters of opinion there are always two sides. These days theres
only one side and you damn well better agree with that leftwing professor or youre
not going to get through the corporate required initiation rite.
