‘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.

McConnell blocked by his own party from calling impeachment witnesses Trump wants for Senate trial: report

Published

on

According to a report from the New York Times, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is finding his hands tied by members of his own party who are skeptical over the appropriateness of calling some the witnesses Donald Trump  -- and a few of his House Republican enablers  -- want to appear.

As the Times notes, "While Democrats who control the House are focused on a swift impeachment vote by year’s end, the White House is almost entirely consumed by the trial that would follow in the Republican-controlled Senate, where Mr. Trump’s team believes he would have the chance to defend himself and where Democrats would almost certainly fall short of the two-thirds vote they would need to remove him from office."

Speaking with NBC host Chuck Todd on Sunday, Cruz attempted to push what has been described as Kremlin propaganda, asserting that "there is evidence of Ukraine interference in our election because an op-ed was written criticizing Trump’s campaign rhetoric about Ukraine."

Published

on

According to a report from Politico, Chinese diplomats have been unleashed, as well as urged, to attack Donald Trump's administration and the U.S. in general via social media like Twitter -- turning the president's favorite social media platform back on him.

"The tactic comes as China’s Foreign Minister Wang Yi has reportedly urged his diplomats to adopt a 'fighting spirit,' which has led to Chinese diplomat Lijian Zhao to describe "America as 'unjust, 'inhumane' and 'hypocritical.' He’s gone so far as to slam neighborhood segregation in Washington, D.C., and assert that 'racial discrimination, gun violence, violent law enforcement are chronic diseases deeply rooted in U.S. society," Politico reports.
