Exploiting Students

One of the things that really frosts my ass- is the raping that educational institutions and banks apply to students. Often they couple that with the illusion of plentiful and great paying jobs- which is untruthful and illusory when viewed on a macro scale.

Use any ploy to rip people off. The over-reliance this country has on bullshit credentialing also frosts my ass. It's amazing that government lets you pump gas without a fucking diploma or license.

My take on the Student Loan Program is that it is a scam designed to provide well paying jobs for those in the ever growing (due to births) financial and political elites.

In 1973 I attended U of Md for about $30 a credit hour, it is now about $335 per.

My professors back then probably made $35k per year. Today they may easily make $350k.

A nice living for the privileged class.

Then the bonus is they get to mold those young minds.
