    EDITORIAL: The Wall Street whiners - Washington Times

    Mostly college grads who didn't get a big paying job right after graduation. We kinda saw this coming. Entitled college grads who think they're degree in Diversity Studies or Multiculturalism and Globalism, or Environmental Studies...........are pissed that Microsoft, Target, Apple, NBC, Google, won't give them 100K a year and a corner office upon graduation.

    After all, THEY the students went through their lectures on how evil America is. They eradicated any hint of racism, sexism, bias, discrimination or judgement (except against white christian males) from their minds.

    One demonstrator held a sign saying he had a doctorate, three postdocs and would “work for food.” Even not knowing the young man’s field, it makes sense that he couldn’t find a job. His resume tells a prospective employer that he’s a perpetual student who’s spent most of his life hiding from the real world. This protester proves the point that you can be extremely well-educated and still not know anything.

    1) Editorial
    2) All hearsay
    3) Zero evidence to back up claims

    Well done.

    +1 Life for you.

    Perhaps Colleges and High Schools better teach students some fundamentals: Start with, acquire and develop MARKETABLE skills. A question I have for the OWS is if they would rather have a job that pays to meet their needs that they may not like or spend their time and energy being pawns of those who seek to have this country engaged in Class Warfare

    What the fuck would you do if you just finished college, are $150,000 in debt with interest payments accruing, no job opportunities available, largely because of the economic collapse, and the jokers who brought it all down are getting blow jobs from strippers on their 50 million dollar yachts? I'd say they have a right to be fucking pissed off, and it would be appreciated if there was some respect for their position and some legitimacy considered for their apparent sentiments. Thank you.

    1- Like all left wing media
    2- Everything is said by someone, thus life is hearsay
    3- Evidence? Have you watched TV or read any OWS literature?

    I would have NEVER gone to a damn college that costs 150K and gotten a degree that didn't guarantee a great job. Lots of morons bought into the idea that "OH my fancy liberal arts degree guarantees me a job!!"

    Go to a tech school, learn a trade, or be a doctor. Otherwise, college is little help.

    OWS folks are learning a life lesson many of us already knew. Education is great. But only work ethic guarantees a job, and even then it may be tough. Entry level, hard work, luck, modesty. That works.

    But as we speak, an 18 year old is taking out 200K in loans to major in Multiculturalism Studies at Columbia U, and will protest in 6 years when he graduates and can't find work.

    So basically, we have about 2 general types:

    1- College grads without jobs who spend almost a quarter-million dollars for a piece of paper that says they went to lectures and partied for 4-5 years while.....either not working, or working at a coffee or music shop.

    2- Those who didn't get an education, had too many kids, got arrested, partied until age 35, or any combination of those who now want a good job.

    So........1: Dumb. 2: Dumb and irresponsible.

    Why? They did it to themselves. No one FORCED them to take out a mountain of debt to get a useless degree. Sorry, but when you don't use any common sense, I have zero sympathy for your entirely self-inflicted wounds! If you borrow money to get a degree, then you had better make certain it is in a field where there is a high demand; otherwise, you're wasting your time and money. A BA in something like "Interdisciplinary Studies" and a buck will get you a cup of coffee (Not a latte from Starbucks).
