"There is one good thing that can be said about Teacher Boomers. At least they didn’t charge their students. Oh yeah, they charged the taxpayer, and often times at rates charged by colleges. But the 3rd graders themselves weren’t forking over the bill to learn about dangling participles, new math, and how eight year old Amy might in fact be a man inside. But if there’s a group of people the Millennials should be rounding up for free helicopter rides, the estates of which should be confiscated to bail them out of their student loans, these are the people. The true snake oil salesmen. The Boomers who financially crippled the Millennials forever - The Professor Boomers.
Like Teacher Boomers, Professor Boomers (and their College Administration Boomer colleagues) also wasted the youth of the Millennials with pointless schooling. But instead of the taxpayer footing the bill for tuition, it would be the Millennials themselves who would pay the bill. And not only pay the bill, but all the interest that would accrue on it as they slowly found out their degree would not land them a decent paying job.
There is not much that can be said about the Professor Boomers that wasn’t said about the Teacher Boomers because they’re essentially the same. They’re rank Marxists. They have no real world experience. They can’t do so they teach. And the education they gave the Millennials was likely also worthless. But what really makes the Professor Boomers vile is they damn well knew the education they were giving the Millennials was worthless. They were just happier than punch the Millennials were dumb enough to pay them $300 a credit for it and borrow $100K at 7% to finance it.
The only problem is how can you, with a straight face and a conscience, tell a kid to borrow $75,000 and spend four years of his life on such bullshit degrees like Sociology, Journalism, Women’s Studies, English, and the like? How can you take young, naïve 18 year olds and ruin their financial lives forever by selling them worthless degrees? How can anyone with the slightest bit of a moral compass forcibly charge $400 a credit and $300 for a textbook for a pre-req class that has absolutely nothing to do with a student’s major?
Apparently the answer is simple. Just be a Professor Boomer!
Disgusting as it is, you once again see how Boomer actions show their true colors. Millions of Professor Boomers and millions of College Admin Boomers had absolutely no moral qualms about lying to an entire generation of youth about the value of these worthless degrees. They didn’t care if it ruined the Millennials’ financial lives forever, these vampires were perfectly fine effectively enslaving these kids to them for the rest of their lives.
But what I get a kick out of, what has got to be an absolute kick in the teeth, is when a professor or dean pulls up to the coffee store in his Lexus, goes up to the counter, and orders a latte from a barista they just screwed $120,000 out of for a “Master’s degree in Chicano Studies.” But the barista is so stupid, he doesn’t realize he’s been screwed or by who. He actually falls for the indoctrination by his professor that it’s the “evil republicans in congress” or “the evil banks” that screwed him over, not the scumbag Professor Boomer who is in effect his new slave owner standing right in front of him. It’s debatable which is more impressive. The fact Professor Boomers screwed younger generations out of $4 trillion in tuition or that they fooled said generations into not realizing it. Either way it was one hell of a heist."
