College degrees not worth the paper its printed on! Graduates find themselves jobless, hopeless and in debt... Yet another Ghost prognostication!
To all the so-called intelligent people who thought I was crazy for telling my listeners not to force their children to go to college because of degree saturation and lack of employment, well this story is for you ass clowns. A recent Time Magazine article, has confirmed my argument!
I've stated many times that college degrees are worth absolutely nothing in America today. Basically, these kids are putting themselves into a lifetime's worth of debt ($23, 200 on average) so they can have a 4 year party of sex, drugs and alcohol ("Girls Gone Wild;" enough said). And then when they're ready to go into America's service-industry oriented economy, they realize that they're not getting paid any better than a pot-head working the cash register at the local head shop.
For those graduates who do find modest salaries after college, they don't do the fiscally responsible thing and pay-off their student loans. Instead they go finance a house, a car and any other materialistic widget they feel that they deserve because of all the "hard work" (wink-wink) they did in college. Not taking into consideration the lack of true job security and globalization of economic systems; both of which jeopardize a graduate's income potential and longevity.
Because of all that's mentioned previous, a young person can feel a bit betrayed or lied to about the current set of circumstances. I feel for you young people! Not only have you been robbed of the economic opportunities accorded to your elders, but you've also been robbed of the critical thinking necessary to properly interpret the seriousness of all that's around you. Your minds have been hypnotized and programmed through an alternate reality perception, and that is Television.
For those of you young people that have snapped out of the MTV daydream and are attempting to lay blame but don't know where to look; look no further than those who raised you; the BABY BOOMERS!
