‘F*ck injustice’: 4.0 GPA student quits Kansas State after first semester over college debt ‘scam’

Published

on

A student at Kansas State University revealed over the weekend that he quit college after the first semester even though he earned a 4.0 GPA.

In a Facebook post on Saturday, Billy Wilson said that he was withdrawing from the university because he was “being put thousands into debt to learn things you will never even use.”

“Yes I have dropped out after finishing my first semester (with a 4.0 GPA),” Wilson wrote. “And it’s one of the best choices I’ve ever made. Not because I am adverse to learning, but actually the exact opposite.”

“YOU ARE BEING SCAMMED. You may not see it today or tomorrow, but you will see it some day,” he continued. “Heck you may have already seen it if you’ve been through college. You are being put thousands into debt to learn things you will never even use.”

“Wasting 4 years of your life to be stuck at a paycheck that grows slower than the rate of inflation. Paying $200 for a $6 textbook. Being taught by teacher’s who have never done what they’re teaching.”

According to Wilson, “[a]verage income has increased 5x over the last 40 years while cost of college has increased 18x.”

“You’re spending thousands of dollars to learn information you won’t ever even use just to get a piece of paper,” he said. “Colleges are REQUIRING people to spend money taking gen. ed. courses to learn about the quadratic formula (and other shit they will never use) when they could be giving classes on MARRIAGE and HOW TO DO YOUR TAXES.”

Wilson’s conceded that not everyone would agree with his opinion, which sparked more than 3,000 replies on Facebook.

According to Time, college tuition alone has skyrocketed 42,930 percent in the last 100 years, while inflation has risen 2,263 percent.

Published

President Donald Trump went off on the "fake news media" yet again, after his own appointees announced he was willing to meet with Iran.

"The Fake News is saying that I am willing to meet with Iran, 'No Conditions.' That is an incorrect statement (as usual!)," Trump tweeted.

In an odd twist, Trump announced just three months ago he'd be willing to meet with no preconditions.

“Not as far as I’m concerned – no preconditions,” the president said in a Meet the Press interview. At another point in the interview, he also said: “I think they want to make a deal. And my deal is nuclear.”

the largest U.S. oil producer can be brought to its knees with a drone carrying a bomb. President Donald Trump responded to intelligence that the drone didn't originate in Yemen, but rather from Iraq or Iran, by saying he was "locked and loaded."

"Saudi Arabia oil supply was attacked. There is reason to believe that we know the culprit, are locked and loaded depending on verification, but are waiting to hear from the Kingdom as to who they believe was the cause of this attack, and under what terms we would proceed!" Trump tweeted Sunday.

Donald Trump in coal hard hat thumbs up

President Donald Trump's promises to coal miners have fallen along with his other broken campaign promises. Another state is facing the harsh reality that Trump is not riding in on a white horse to save them.

According to Axios, three out of the nine coal companies in the Powder River Basin in northeastern Wyoming have filed for bankruptcy and another two companies are consolidating. Kentucky coal miners have been protesting Blackjewl, which filed for bankruptcy in July, withdrawing payroll dollars from miners' accounts. Little has been heard about the Wyoming workers as those companies crumble, however.
