The Israel Deception

Is the return of Israel in the 20th century truly a work of God, or is it a result of a cosmic chess move to deceive the elect by the adversary?

Millennial students following in the footsteps of baby boomers in demanding grades at college be abolished

It is perhaps ironic that everyone loves to tout a Harvard or Yale Law Degree as something almost holy and miles above every other law school graduate, but the fact of the matter is, it is quite impossible to ever really determine how competent those ivy leaguers are since they no longer give out actual letter grades.  Instead, students are graded on a system of either Honors, Pass, Low Pass, and Fail, and according to Business Insider, virtually no one ever fails, and very few every get stamped with a Low Pass mark.
Yale Law School is widely regarded as the top law school in the U.S.
The school doesn’t have regular grades, just Honors, Pass, Low Pass, and Fail. Almost no one fails, so basically the worst you can do is get a low pass.
Not only does Yale Law have a different grading structure, but it has a unique culture as well. -Business Insider

No country for young American men

Remember when we were growing up and it was a rite of passage during high school summer breaks to get a job, and perhaps even buy our first car with those earnings?  Sadly today, this is no longer possible as the real consequences of Obama’s job recovery, coupled with the tens of millions of illegal aliens in the country over the past 10 years, have made youth unemployment a thing of the past.
At 41.3 percent, the July labor force participation rate of teens was the lowest for the month in the post-World War II period.
The teenage summer job has been going the way of telephone booths and the cassette tape for decades. The length of the downward trend has been masked by the fact that it’s hard to tease apart teen summer jobs from teen employment more generally.
Looking at the jump in the labor-force participation of teens in July over the average for the school months, it’s clear that summer jobs peaked in the mid-1960s and have been sliding since. - Bloomberg

Obama’s next boondoggle: Free college at the cost of $60 billion

President Barack Obama believes that people cannot do for themselves, and that he, as Master of the Universe, must do for them in all things.  Beginning with his schemes of investing in green energy companies that eventually went bankrupt, to nationalizing General Motors who today isbuilding new plants in China, not the United States, and of course in Obamacare, which has caused companies to divest full time jobs and people to pay over twice in premiums than they paid before.
So with little aptitude beyond puttering around on golf courses and spending billions on vacations, the President is once again trying to muster his inner ‘Hope and Change’ and reveal the next great scheme for the American people.  Free college.

College income study shows education won't assure you a future of success

Proponents of education have quite often used the propaganda that higher learned not only is a vital necessity to succeed in today's world, but is the equalizer against poverty and social economic environments.  That fallacy may be coming to an end as a new study is showing that those who begin at lower levels of household income stand to earn far less for the same college Degree than those in a much higher bracket.

Meaning... in the real world, success is not measured by education and drive, but on money and the connections that come from it.


What does the above chart imply? Nothing more than that for the vast majority of people, college degrees are the modern-day equivalent of very, very expensive snake oil.

Yes: colleges are sold to you as the critical stepping stone on the path to wealth and prosperity, but sadly the empirical evidence demonstrates that when it comes to an actual, demonstrable income effect, only the wealthiest people actually benefit from a degree! The lowest fifth of household by income see their change in income decline by 10%, while the middle fifth sees an incremental 2.1% drop. Where do incomes rise? When you are already wealthy and belong to the highest fifth of households by income: there, going to college boosts your income by an additional 15.1%

And since for the great majority (excluding the richest of course), a college education is funded by even more implied poverty, i.e. debt, which is merely the opportunity cost of future income and wealth, the simply math works out as follows: college - a tool for making the rich richer, the poor poorer, and virtually everyone (excluding the richest, again, of course) a debt slave into a system that beguiles impressionable youths with dreams of money and power, and cheap low interest private and Federal student loans, only for the illusion to shatter upon graduation and all those wonderful jobs demanding a piece of paper procured in exchange for 4 years of debt-funded classes, turn out to have been a mirage all along...

In short: the only hope for a great many people is nothing but a debt trap. - Zerohedge

For a large portion of the wealthy in the world, education had little to do with their prosperity and success.  Bill Gates was a college dropout, and Sam Walton relied upon loans from his Father-in-law to build his first few retail stores.  In truth, luck, risk, and hard work achieves far more than a college Degree, and validates that in an open playing field, not all have the intestinal fortitude to be an entrepreneur because of the qualities necessary to achieve great success.

If your college Degree can't land you a job, demand a refund

Refunds are a common practice for businesses who want to ensure customers return again and again to their places of business, but what is the recourse for an college student who receives a lifetime of propaganda that their college Degree ensures a lucrative career, and it doesn't actually pan out?

Demand a refund of course!

And this is just what one student has done on Nov. 12, by submitting a petititon to the Obama administration to offer college graduates, who owe massive student loan debts, the right to turn in their diplomas in exchange for a refund of their money.


We petition the obama administration to:

Provide University graduates ability to trade their diplomas back for 100% tuition refunds.

Because of the inability of recent college graduates to find gainful employment in order to repay their college debt, and since this college debt cannot be eliminated in bankruptcy, and most of the recent additions to the job market have been in service related industries, the Obama administration should take up the cause of reducing college debt and hold those accountable responsible.

In the name of Consumer Protection, recent college graduates should have the ability to return the diploma and not make any reference to receiving education from the college in exchange for a 100% refund of college tuition. This may be extended with a graduated (ha, get it?) reduction for the last four years, with a red line at January 20, 2008.

While a novel idea, and unique way to hop on the Obama welfare wagon like 53% of Americans have already done, it would probably be more prudent to simply sue the college professors and university where you got your Degree, for failing to teach you basic logic and economics in believing that borrowing $120,000 would guarantee you a chance at one of Obama's famous shovel ready burger flipper jobs.

I'll have some fries with that Mr. Liberal Arts Degree man.

The dying college and university model

As costs for college and university eduction has skyrocketed over the past decade, student loan eligibility has gotten easier for young adults.  The paradigm Americans have over borrowing for today without considering tomorrow's future is leaving the next generation with debts that will affect their choices for decades to come.

So with this being said, and the statistical no-win scenario of further education, coupled with dwindling job opportunities and falling wages, the old model of needing a college Degree to have a good lifestyle is dying in society as the cost of eduction itself, not the lack of opportunities, is what is killing the future of the next generations.

A recent infograph study by Online College News shows exactly how the unsustainable cost of higher education is no longer a viable solution to ensuring a good future in a career, or lifestyle.
