      Yay free community college. And I'm positive.

      My favorite was how this one hippie girl was screaming about how she has a BA from a prestigious liberal arts college but she can't find a job despite having a degree and how she spent all this many to be broke and how it's not fair that the rich get richer blah blah.

      Same guy asked her what her major was. Her response? 19th century English poetry.

      El oh el.
      Mood: WOOF!

        That actually speaks more to the entire institution of college and how it even HAS that as a major. Promoting uselessness to our children!! lol

          I'm not sympathetic to the movement, and I'm sure there were many more JUST like her in the fray (had to have been -- and worse -- with that many people gathered), but those are pretty cherry-picked examples. Not by you, but people who covered it. Hannity brought on some Russell Brand wannabe and, predictably, ripped him another *******.

          I just wish that all those rich people looking to gain favor with the "99%" would actually give more taxes, as is their right. They sure talk a hell of a lot about it, but they'd rather engage in political advocacy, and philanthropy at a fraction of the cost, but with monumentally more upside in the PR department.

            My guess is she was an English major that had a concentration in 19th century poetry.

            My point is why would you choose that as a career?

            • And community college basically is free. In NJ at least, High Schools have the NJStars program for those that finish in the top-15% of their class. They get a full-ride to CC. But if money is the issue, there's always financial aid that covers the bulk of tuition for full-time students.

              With NJStars, on top of grants, and I'm getting back like $1200/semester just to go. And there's a bridge program right into Rutgers if you maintain a 3.0

                with most CCs, you can qualify for grants that essentially pay for school so long as you pass your classes. It's not uncommon, it's just called different things in different states.

                  Yeah. I mean these two cases were on the extreme end. Unfortunately OWS turned into just that at the end and lost steam. My thing is why waste time arguing about this when you could be spending that time applying for positions and internships. I personally would have used my time for that than arguing with a bunch of rich people who couldn't care less.

                      Who couldn't care less, and are probably going to be the bosses at the positions for which they'll apply.

                      And just to clarify, idgaf what rich people do with their money, or how much they pay in taxes -- just stop talking about how "we should be paying more." You can if you want.

                                I've skipped way too much this semester. Can't afford to miss anymore classes.
