College tuition prices rising.  "Are you getting sick of high-priced enrollment shit?"

Universities of Kentucky & Louisville board of trusties have voted to raise the tuition hikes 5%. Thanks to the state government of my home state cut the funding to education. Now it's gonna be even harder to enroll into colleges nowadays. No wonder why this nations IQ is dropping nowadays b/c no one can afford of high costs of everything. Fuck the speculation and greed!

I can't wait for the 2014 & 2015 Kentucky gubernatorial races to vote these politicians who has their heads buried in the sand out of office!

Actually I'm pretty sure IQ's are dropping because the people in charge of the education system don't know what they are doing.

That being said... just because some people don't have a college degree doesn't mean that they have low IQ's.

IQs are dropping because people find it more important to be reality TV and internet media/social networking smart rather than book smart.

Libraries are going to turn into museums - "...this is what the primitives used to have to submit themselves to in order to get information or entertainment. Death from infectious paper-cuts reached epidemic levels in 19..." "...could you imagine those poor bastards having to flip pages manually, let alone actually read and memorize something instead of just simply looking it up when necessary?..."

Not really. It's when the prices of stuff, especially food, gasoline, education, homes, and so on started to going up dramatically in the current age that got me outraged.

UPDATE: I forgot. Healthcare costs are rising too!

Stuff. It's not worth the rage man. College educations aren't all they're cracked up to be. The whole system is ass backwards, and no one in power cares. Give 'em a few more years, it'll all be free for those with the proper id chip in their hand.

The IQ is dropping because people are getting more intelligent over time, that's how IQ is calculated. :P

Boomers are too busy worrying about guns they don't know how to shoot and fags they don't know. They might find time in between things. I know bitching about cigarettes and assault sodas is pretty hard work. They're very busy working the 60 hour work weeks they earned by fucking up unions in every way possible.

We should probably let them do their thing. They know what's best after all. They saw who to blame on television.

Yes, leave them alone. Some of them folks on TV have a university degree, so they know how things really work

The things I don't know could fill libraries.

Graduating from school, starting a job and paying taxes is one of the quickest ways to convert a young Liberal into a Conservative. ( tongue in cheek )

I just wanna clarify, again, that I don't hate Boomers, I just think their politics are pretty shallow and ineffective.

I once met a guy who was a Kennedy liberal and then became a Reagan conservative when he made money. People who are successful financially vote Republican. That is why Democrats keep the poor poor.

In regards to the OP:
Education is getting expensive and there are no policies that I know of which are actually helping. More student loans just creates more people like me who make what should be enough to live but isn't because of that $600 a month I don't get to keep.

The really sad thing is that education isn't getting better either. We just keep pouring more and more money into it. There was a time when getting a college degree, was something you only did if saved up money and wanted to study abstract things. Now it is just what you do and if you can't hack it in real university classes, you take business.

I'm still smarter than you

Three Conservative radio talk show hosts in Milwaukee, where I live, started out as liberals. One of them was a hard core Marxist. The longer they got away from our education system and lived in the real world, the more conservative they became. What I like about that is that it gives them a better feel for explaining what goes on in Liberal's heads.

And here in Wisconsin our UWM college system was crying like they do every year for more state aid and tuition increases. Then it is discovered that they had quietly stashed aside over 1 billion dollars in a "slush fund". Our governor then put a 2 year freeze on state funding levels. Not long ago more articles in the local newspaper showed the college board voting for more pay increases. OY.

Here in Australia they're also talking about raising the cost of university fees. Pretty much everyone's against it so hopefully it won't go through. I hear what you invest in universities, you get several times back, both due to the higher taxes the graduates start paying when they get a decent job, and through enrichment to the community through scientific/cultural advances or whatever.

Edit: I gather the cost of tertiary education here is still only a tiny fraction of the costs in the US. I don't know how the system over there got so fucked up.

The "great liberal bastion" of college seems to do a great job of keeping students poor and fucked. How progressive of them, to take all the money for themselves.

That said though, the older I get, the more pragmatic I get. I wouldn't say get more conservative, if anything I get more center left libertarian. I can't stand conservatives because they want some of the same things that libertarians want, except that they don't want the personal responsibility that goes along with it. They'd rather hand it off to a politician or a businessman who will fuck them in the ass.

Over here in the U.S. we hammered into our youth's heads that you get nowhere without a college education. So a bunch of kids go to a college they can't afford and major in subjects with no real value or skillset to get a decent job. But they are left with a huge loan to pay off ( default on ) I think we have close to a 1 trillion dollar loan debt figure.

It's a trillion dollar bubble that can't burst soon enough.

average IQ scores go up about 3 points per decade and have been since 1947. It mostly has to do with refined education techniques and not if one generation is actually more intelligent than the previous.

But we like to look at the retarded decisions made by the baby boomers and come to the conclusion that people can only be getting dumber. Then they pass that genetic deformity containing lack of foresight on to their kids - it's why you see so many self inflicted nut shots on social media sights. kinda inbred somewhere to stop reproducing and passing that crap along. Darwinism or something.

The youth are self obsessed and shitty regardless, it's nothing new. What is new is social media. It gives shit a voice, and reality TV legitimizes it.

both creations of the baby boomers.
this shit ain't new.
don't you see the patterns of the1%ers
Keep people stupid and entertained with slapstick.
Been going on since Charlie Chaplin, Keystone Kops, and the Three Stooges.
Probably longer, but i'm not big on stage and play performance knowledge
Even Kings had court jesters to entertain and distract what was considered less than his peers.

conspiracy.illuminati. bilderberg, intelligentsia


and this tuition bullshit is just another loophole the government created which the banks exploit, like those crappy home loans. Students take the loan at X% interest, but then the rates jump hella-high after the grace period is over. Just replace housing bubble with education bubble, sit back and watch shit collapse again. Fucking boomers are too stupid to stop touching the hot stove.

I totally agree with that "hot stove" comment, all Boomers do when they are in leadership positions is serve themselves or blame others because they are too self absorbed to see the big picture.

But let's be honest here: When's the last time you guys did anything?

we're too cynical and disillusioned to lie, so we'll never get elected to any political office.
We wouldn't even be voted in to wipe our own ass if the boomers were willing to touch us.
