With my most recent Spearhead post in mind, let’s take a look We Are The 99% Blog at some more:

Raised to want more from her country?  Translation: I was raised to be an entitlement princess.

She says she has a health problem because of genetically modified organisms and pollution.  Does anyone think she used her extensive experience and knowledge of medicine and biology to come to that conclusion?  I don’t either.

She was promised a job the first day of college?  I doubt that, but if that happened, Wall Street is not the problem here.  Wall Street did not promise her a job.  She shouldn’t be “occupying wall street”.  She should be occupying the offices of the administration of her college.  Or maybe she meant she expected a job because she has a vagina.

Why am I supposed to hire you again?

I have noticed a lot of, “I have a college degree.  I have a 4.0 GPA or triple major.   Where’s my job?” on the We Are The 99% blog.  Most of the time they won’t tell you what they majored in unless they majored in the arts.  In that case they will tell you so that they can complain how “the arts don’t get respect they ‘deserve'”.  What were this woman’s majors?  For all we know they were women’s studies, bisexual Asian studies, and underwater basket weaving.

When you’re in a hole, what you should do is dig yourself deeper.  Since this woman is so intent on making the hole she’s in deeper, I will give her a shovel for free so she doesn’t have to go into debt to buy the shovel.

M.A. in what?  Another case of we’re not going to be told what the degree is in.

Wall Street did not make this person’s family homophobic.

So the government is supposed to pay for this person’s transgender drugs and operation?  Words fail me on this one.

Good question.  What are you watching Jersey Shore when you can’t afford food?  Being able to watch Jersey Shore means you have access to MTV.  Cable costs money, but I guess that’s more important than food.

The only reason the “men in black” would be after her is if they’re interested in engaging her for “slut” services.

At least she’s honest.

My troll sense says this one is a troll.  Stuff like “minority women’s studies” is a dead give away.  Still, I appreciate what this person was trying to do and did.  It’s better than my idea of sending the We Are The 99% Blog a picture of a lizard with the caption, “I am a reptile alien and a member of the 1%”.

  1. While I can agree with these people that there are some serious problems with US Corporatism (sp?), I have to take a view, because, you see, I’m part of the 50% who actually pay-out in Federal Income Taxes to pay for all these whiners – and I pay quite a bit.

    If these supposedly 99% were to stick to protesting against banking, monetary policy, foreign policy (especially the US spending billions abroad part), etc.: I’d have no quarrel with them.

    However, most of them seem to also be agitating for more government spending directed their way (“Give me no-cost-to-me health care”. “Spend taxpayer money to pay off my student loans for me”. “Spend taxpayer money to create a job for me”.) And, that’s when it starts to sound like they are really just agitating to raise my taxes so that they won’t have to make so many “sacrifices” – like, say, getting a degree in something other than “minority women’s studies” (is there really such a degree program?), or NOT rushing out to buy the latest iPhone, iPad, etc.And, how about not financing a “new car” if you have a “minority women’s studies” have to pay child support, and are under-employed?

    Sorry to vent, but we’ve worked hard to get where we are today. I don’t want to be forced to pay more to pay the way for some dumb-ass who chose to get a degree in “minority women’s studies”.[/rant]

  2. I have met women who owe $100,000 or more in student debt, and they have bat-sh*t crazy degrees like women’s studies, or philosophy etc…

    I have never heard of “Minority Women’s Studies” – but I would not be surprised if that last one was NOT a troll – but in fact, genuine.

    Of course, these women have something in common.

    They did not target a career – they targeted a degree.

    They expect that simply having a degree entitles them to a 6-digit salary.

    I am going to do a write up about this on my blog. I found some good statistics.

  3. PMAFT,

    Thanks for taking one for the team, man. I think I would have had to throw back three shots of whiskey before I could have dredged through that drivel.

  4. The photos from this post and your Spearhead post are the best EVER. Could not ask for better evidence (and so much of it too) of the entitlement mentality.

    The constant theme through all of them is proof of what a waste and scam college is (at least for humanities/social sciences). Definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. Only women it seems keep going back to school for MAs even after they moan about all the debt and uselessness of their BA degree. They are insane or stupid enough to keep falling for the same tricks and thinking it will be different this time. I suppose it is the same reasoning that leads women to “bad boys”. Obviously, this is not Wall Street’s problem! These women should rather be mad at their schools and the WOMEN who largely run the useless degree mill that are the social sciences. Those who told them that being “spunky” and “passionate” or just having enough self-esteem will get them a job. But of course they can’t get mad at a fellow sister. When will they get that it is women via feminism that has lead them to where they are. The men just wanted them to stay home and be good wives and mothers. I’d like to ask them what is more oppressive, being married or being $60K + in debt with nothing to show? Had women stayed on a natural course, they would at least have a family to show and bring some value into the world that way.

    The first photo gave me chuckles over “when voting isn’t enough”. Duh–voting has never been enough or the end all be all, but women had to have that precious “right”, thinking the vote and their influence would save the world.

    The gay person must have missed the message of all the other photos as he is actually ahead of the game for not having an “education”. Lucky to not have the debt load.

    • The college education bubble will burst along with the misandry bubble. Those women were pushed into college and a career and fed lies about feminism. Now the cost of misandry is coming back to bite those women. Enjoy your spinsterhood and cats!

When will they get that it is women via feminism that has lead them to where they are.

      Eventually they will get it about feminism, in a manner of speaking. By that point, their battle cry will be, “Men benefit from feminism and created feminism.” They will still blame men, but feminism will be “something men did”. I think we will see the same thing with student loans once enough of these women realize that higher numbers of men aren’t going to college and thus aren’t getting in student load debt. They won’t realize that the reason is because of misandry in the schools, affirmative action, etc. plus men realizing that a lot of college majors are a waste of time. They will think that men ran a con job on women tricking women into student loan debt.

      I didn’t include any of these, but there are several entries on the We Are The 99% Blog from women complaining how they can’t “afford” to get married and have children. Of course, their lack of marriage and children is Wall Street’s fault too.

  5. Majored in wimminz menstrating vagina studeeez.
    Can’t get cushy government job because of budget cuts.
    50k in student loans.

    I am the 99% of libtards.
    Occupy wall street instead of graciously take any job you can get!

  6. Here’s my contribution:

  7. It’s almost enough to make me write up a sheet detailing my experience as one of the 49% who built and maintain all civilisation…

  8. Where are all the accountants, engineers, nurses, software developers? Oh that’s right, they got degrees in something useful and in demand. They are at work.

  9. Didn’t some US ex-president wonder: ‘Don’t ask what your country can do for you. Ask instead what you can do for your country’. In the first picture: I already got the vote without paying taxes, voted all goodies my way how does the government dare to run out of money and subsidize me?

  10. I think if a certain commenter keeps people getting to post links to the manosphere at MSM websites he will make his own prediction wrong that the feminist government bubble only pops by 2020. Haha!

    BTW, obviously, most don’t post their degrees, otherwise people yell at them you stupid cunt chose a useless degree. BTW the arts like charity events seems to have been places where the offspring of the wealthy gather to meet, marry and occupy their thoughts with. But, now, people just thought it is a valid profession choice with a good ROI! Yeah!

  11. So, it seems feminist bubble burst earlier and singularity comes later:

    So, maybe, update your blog URL! 😀

  12. The greatest irony — one easily visible to those of us who know how the gears of the world interlock and operate — is that Wall Street’s financial shenanigans are what has made it possible for so many average intelligence, average ambition people go to universities. Financialization is Karl Denninger’s term for this.

    When you want to fund social policies or undertake tasks that are so inefficient or so foolish that they are net negatives, you must have a way of finding new cash to dump into the black hole. Wall Street teamed up with consumers and governments who wanted to live beyond their means, and gave them exactly what they desired.

    Total systemic debt in the US has risen faster than real productive output (even when real GDP is exaggerated by government statisticians) in every year since 1980. Wall Street’s buddies in Congress even raised leverage limits so the financials could keep the fake debt-based growth of the US economy running smoothly.

    These 99% people are angry that their lives should be better than what they are, but the funny thing is that their lives are actually superior in many ways to what they would be absent artificially easy credit.

    So you see, it’s not as easy and simple as dumping on the criminals who work on Wall Street. Their fraudulent and unsustainable behavior has benefited every man and woman who was able to access tens of thousands of dollars in credit without having to demonstrate an ability to pay it back or being forced to choose between majors likely to produce high earnings. Contrast the difficulty of convincing a wealthy investor to give you $60k with filling out a few pages of forms for a government backstopped loan.

  13. Wall Street teamed up with consumers and governments who wanted to live beyond their means, and gave them exactly what they desired.

    I think they desired a high paying job and were lied to and told that college would do this for them.

    But don’t worry, the truth has never been a problem for you before, so why start being honest now?

    • PT Barnum: “I think they desired a high paying job and were lied to and told that college would do this for them.

      But don’t worry, the truth has never been a problem for you before, so why start being honest now?”

      You’ll have to argue a lot better than this if you want to challenge me. I know full well that you have no idea who I am, so your clichéd and pre-packaged omni-purpose insult has zero impact.

      Your post is so lazy, you don’t even bother saying who did the lying.

      I hope you say some Wall Street fat cat did. Please say it was them; don’t say high school counselors. Don’t say the Ad Council. Don’t say Bill Cosby. I beg you to say Gordon Gekko. The restfulness of my sleep tonight depends on some guy using the handle PT Barnum.

      • How about the colleges that took their money?

        PLEASE say the colleges didn’t lie, stupid-lying-animal.

        PLEASE say that. Cause it would make this all so easy.

        What do you stupid animal libertarians call it when someone takes someone’s money through fraud?

        And PLEASE tell me, PLEASE tell me, that Wall Street didn’t lobby to make College debt immune to bankruptcy. PLEASE tell me.

        PS:
        Gordon Gekko wasn’t really part of Wall Street, stupid-lying-animal, as he was actually convicted of breaking the law. Real Wall Street personages are almost never punished for ignoring the law.

        Take for example, all of the people who worked for Madoff…. cause only Madoff knew. Or maybe the DA gave them a “deal”, WINK NOD WINK.

        • u mad?

          I mean, not to be snarky, but you really shouldn’t call PMAFT’s guests “stupid lying animals” on his blog, brother. Chilling out might be a good idea.

  14. Where are all the accountants, engineers, nurses, software developers? Oh that’s right, they got degrees in something useful and in demand. They are at work.

    What a fascinating specimen of Stupid-Lying-Animal we have here. I think we have encountered a pure blood! Why don’t you challenge me to “prove” that job prospects are poor for engineers and software developers? Prove your pedigree, Stupid-Lying-Animal. You can do it.

    • “Job prospects are poor for engineers and software developers”

      Yes in america you could argue that

      Considering most of these jobs are now outsourced, or indians are actually shipped in from india to places like britain for months at a time, for pennies on the euro

      I’m not sure if large american firms even use american software engineers anymore …

      I really wish these guys would come out & say theyre protesting the bailouts & demand the tax payers money back, nobody voted to bail out scummy banks

      Clouding it what all this feminist politically correct liberalism ruins any credibility the ows movement could have had

      If they were simply protesting the injustice of the banks & massive theft of tax payers cash, more ppl wld support them

      Instead of the lesbian feminists & politically correct race whining ethnic minorities who make up a large majority of the camps …

      Feminism & pc liberalism simply alienates working & upper middle class

      Feminism & pc liberalism alienates 99% of society … theyre the 1% ….

  17. i would like to know how someone can rack up $100,000 worth of debt from fees. what were they studying? i would hope it would be medicine or something like that.

    i guess i can say im lucky. The Australian government gives you the option to loan the money interest fee and you only start paying it back once you hit a certain thresh hold. normally when you start working full time. is there something like that in the US? im not sure.

    it has done wonders for many of us from lower income families like me who would otherwise been forced to do a trade or other unskilled jobs.

    i feel sympathetic for these people but i wouldn’t know how this could be resolved but there is one phrase that springs into mind with all the primadonnas who cry foul over useless degrees, “toughen up princess”.

    That is all

    • Likely it wasn’t just fees. In the US how much aid and/or loans you can get is based on an estimated total cost of college. This doesn’t just include tuition, fees, and books, but living expenses (i.e. dorm fees or equivalent rent, food etc.) Since you can get a loan for all of this, you could rack up the loans pretty quickly. A smart person without an entitlement complex would keep their expenses and thus their loans to a minimum. (That is too much for most women.) There are other ways of incurring high expenses. State universities usually have separate tuition rates for students are from the state the university is in and for students from outside the state. For example, a resident of Wisconsin would have a lower tuition rate than a resident of Minnesota would at the University of Wisconsin. At the University of Minnesota it would be the opposite. Private universities can also get expensive.

      Another way costs can add up is graduate school. Lots of graduate schools will make you exempt from paying tuition if you get a teaching assistantship or research assistantship with them. In addition the assistantship pays you to work. It’s like having a job, and it pays you like having a job but with the added benefit of free tuitioin. You will still have fees to pay, but that is minuscule and living expenses too. For instance, I have a Masters degree. I benefited from the tuition exemption through so my only expenses were living expenses and minuscule fees. I didn’t have to take any loans out because the money I was paid for my assistantships plus money I earned at career related jobs during the summer provided me with more than enough cash to pay all that. Things like engineering and the sciences will have more assistantships obviously. My masters degree was in computer science and everyone who was in my major got an assistantship. Being a science there was enough research to go around for assitantships. If you are going for a degree in the liberal arts, there are going to be a lot less assitantships so those people have to pay full price tuition.

      Loans aren’t the only thing available. There are lots of scholarships and need based financial aid (grants you don’t have to pay back) available. With need based financial aid, one of the big problems is making too much, or your parents making too much, to qualify.

      There are two types of student loans, subsidized and unsubsidized. Subsidized have a lower interest rate. Chances are the idiots with $100K in loans have a lot of unsubsidized loans. You are required to start paying back your loans six months after you stop being a full time student. There are plenty of deferments where you don’t have to pay back the loan for the term of the deferment, including one for unemployment, where the government pays your interest for the term of the deferment. There are also forbearances which are the same as deferments, but interest accrues. In the end the problem with all of those options is that they can’t pay for a useless overpriced degree.

  18. I’m not sure where to start but I am $20,000 in debt and have been out of college for 6 years. I don’t own a house or have children because I am not financially ready for either. Since I know I can’t afford a house (yet) I live with a roommate with a rent low enough for me to save some bucks at the end of the month. I don’t have children because I practice safe sex and know a child will cost $100’s of thousands of dollars which is another reason I save money every month. How am I am able to save money? I work full time about 60+ hours a week, some days are great some really suck but I went into my field of choice. How did I get a job? I went to college and in the 4 years there decided what I wanted to do and pursued a job during that time rather than waiting until when I got out and leaned on my degree. I eat healthy food that is priced “in my budget”. I workout regularly to maintain good health so I won’t get a bunch of doctor bills I can’t afford. I don’t buy a flat screen or an Iphone cause I can’t afford it, but I have a phone that calls and a TV to watch if I need to. I don’t sit around watching people on TV do things that make me mad because they are the 1%. I go out and work and enjoy MY LIFE. I am grateful that I get to wake up in a country that, has problems, but also gives me the choice to do with my life what I must. I couldn’t imagine how these protestors would handle living in war-torn Africa, struggling to stay alive, while avoiding AIDS, gun fire and a hungry lion. I read all of these stories and I do have to say I feel bad for some of them, but I also feel that we make our own life and we only have the problems that we allow to be problems.

    This statement may be the single truest thing I have ever read in my entire life…

    “The sad fact is that people are poor because they have not yet decided to be rich. People are overweight and unfit because they have not yet decided to be thin and fit. People are inefficient time wasters because they haven’t yet decided to be highly productive in everything they do.”
    -Brian Tracy

  19. […] Boosterism to the contrary, it’s become blindingly obvious that the core of the OWS crowd are a bunch of sulky little girls stamping their feet […]

  20. If I had to guess…you have been rejected by most women, haven’t obtained an education past the eighth grade, have an abusive or absentee mother and a secret sexual desire for men. Good luck with your women hating ventures!
