‘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

on

President Donald Trump is considering firing Mick Mulvaney, his acting White House chief of staff and director of the Office of Management and Budget, The Atlantic reported Friday.

"Mick Mulvaney's job was in danger even before his disastrous press conference yesterday, and his equally disastrous attempt to walk that performance back," The Atlantic reported. "The fumble could not have been more poorly timed: According to multiple current and former White House officials, many of whom spoke on the condition of anonymity to relay private conversations, Trump has been steadily souring on Mulvaney for weeks."

Michael Moore predicts Mick Mulvaney will get into Heaven after confessing Trump’s quid pro quo

Published

Academy Award-winning filmmaker Michael Moore predicted acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney will ascend to Heaven in the afterlife during a Friday interview on MSNBC's "The Beat" with Ari Melber.

The host played a clip of Mulvaney admitting Trump's quid pro quo while seeking foreign election assistance from Ukraine.

"This man obviously is going to be admitted into Heaven," Moore said. "You know, he told the truth."

"If there was a movie version of this, somebody stuck him with a needle just before he walked out onto the stage there, a truth serum needle, and he just went on and on saying, 'Yeah, that’s what we do. Yeah, of course.' Essentially admitting there is a quid pro quo. In fact, there are many quid pro quos."
