The rappin’, agit-prop’in FLOTUS

31 Dec

Hey, high school grads: why not rack up an enormous debt, be further prog-indoctrinated and have your morals polluted in an environment full of temptation to sin, and end up unable to use your useless piece of paper anywhere because everyone else has one, too?

FLOTUS say go to college, dawgz!

    To further boil the blood, have you seen the latest data on savings for millenials? howmuch.net/articles/how-much-millennials-have-saved-up

    I may have quit my degree and be working for myself in an unreliable market. But Jon and I have more savings than 77% of our contemporaries. Not only that, our net worth is actually in the black, even with the little debt we have. I suppose real money counts for nothing when you don’t have your merit stickers, though.

    In their defense I must point out that it is an exercise in laughable pointlessness to “save” something that does nothing but depreciate in value over time and that accrues horrifying tax penalties if “saved” in a manner not approved of by the zookeepers responsible for the ersatz commodity’s creation in the first place. If we cannot direct our disapproval where it belongs (i.e., the counterfeiting criminal oligarchs and their confiscation teams that make “saving” of “money” a fool’s exercise), then we can perhaps express our displeasure at the lack of millennial foresight in investing their “money” in something of rather more tangible long-term value. Of course this requires a “low time preference” mindset – something that has been wanting in the last three or four generations.

    Alas, so do a lot of other people smarter than the FLATUS who should know better. I’m almost ready to believe that the only reason for this is that the Boomers and GenXers, having been suckered themselves into getting a worthless piece of parchment toilet paper costing them a few years of future salary, are not about to let future generations avoid repeating that same act of self-defeating stupidity, “If we had to suffer, you kids are gonna suffer too!”

    Inclined to agree, feeriker. Pathetic, ain’t it? (As a Gen-Xer, I’m inclined to want to believe it’s more the Boomers than my fellow Gen X-ers, but I know it’s both, alas.)

    For my part, as per post-secondary education, I have three things myself: a diploma, a degree, and a grad certificate.

    Enough education, methinks. 🙂

    American universities are basically just another welfare system anymore, giving make-work to phony ‘academics’ who are unqualified to do anything else. The educational system in the US is the one economic sector I really wish would get outsourced. We’d be better off scrapping everything from preschool to grad school and letting the Chinese run it.

    The educational system is no doubt running exactly as those over us want it to, with the desired results. Which is instructive in itself, with those who are able to realize that.
