Remember when I said the Republicans were going to “Ron Paul” the Trump and make sure he wasn’t the Republican nominee for President? Well I was right. Of course. Interesting thing is that despite their best efforts the Trump may still end up winning the nomination. This is a historic moment kids. The destruction of the Republican Party.
The vast majority of people who study college degrees do the degree and that is it. They figure that all they have to do is graduate and then they can wave their piece of paper and jobs will magically appear. This is not the case. You need to start early. You need to foster professional relationships. You need to build your network. While studying you can volunteer your services for a small firm in the field that you want to work in when you finish studying. You’re helping them, you’re helping yourself, and they’re helping you.
By the time you finish your degree you should already have a clear idea where you’re going to be working. Let’s say your degree takes you four years to complete. That’s four years of networking in your future field. Maybe it’s four different start-ups where you help out. Think of all the contacts you will have made.
Or you could go out and get shit-faced every night with your buddies.
Today’s headline is of a Canadian mom who was investigated by child protection services for letting her kids play alone in the backyard while she was home. A few things stick out for me here.
Someone made a complaint about her children playing in their yard. We often look back at grand dramas like World War II and shake our heads at stories of collaborators and people being betrayed for acts such as hiding Jews. But the truth is that those people are always with us and that it only needs a tiny little bit of tyranny for them to crawl out of the primordial slime.
When the social workers showed up they went through the house to inspect the premises. As the mother said,
“[The worker was] asking me about if we’ve ever dealt with CFS before, what my childhood was like, how I punish my children,” she said. “She had to look to see where my kid slept. She had to see if we had enough food in the house.”
From a young age, it is quite clear to any young person growing up in America that you must go to college. Especially as a man – you are made to believe is the only way you can get a girl, the only way to provide, that you are far less of a man if you lack a college degree.
In reality, having a silly Liberal Arts degree in LGBT Studies makes you less of a man.
I’m not going to preach that you should or shouldn’t go to college – but what I will preach is that you should think very carefully about throwing down six figures or more on a piece of paper that won’t get you a job beyond making a latte (also remember: a Civil Engineering degree from a random state school is likely more valuable than a LGBT degree from Harvard). In addition to that, even if the job is has some prestige and sex appeal to it, if it only pays $18 an hour – is it really worth it? There are plenty of options out there that pay far, far better, won’t require four years of your life, won’t require a ransom worth a 20% downpayment on a new home, and won’t suck you into the system designed to keep you in debt and working for the rest of your life.
Having documented the growing tensions in Sweden between an immigration-happy government and a nation beset by refugee-crime sprees, it appears ‘the people’ have had enough. Stockholm residents are upset over the city council’s plans to re-locate hundreds of Muslim migrants right next to a school and during a recent meeting, brawls broke out as Swedes exclaimed, “we demand f##king answers, now!” These are not ultra-right-wing nationalists exhorting their racist feelings, these are average Swedes and the revolution is building…
However, rather than fight them in their own turf, allow me to simply debunk, disprove, and destroy them in a much simpler, and sniper like way from the opposite direction. If they are so committed to reality. If they are so correct. And if they truly know better than all of us. Then why have nearly all the liberal arts and humanities failed to improve, let alone solve, any of the social ills they purport to be solving?
The wage gap between blacks and whites has not closed, nor has the wage gap between men and women.
Income distribution has worsened since the academic left’s wet dream of The Great Society has been implemented.
Divorce, single-parenthood, and broken families have skyrocketed.
And they never seem to point to any success they’ve had in solving the social ills they purport to (thus always resulting in a hypocritical clamoring for more money and funding).
