Because, somewhere, in an office, is a useless bastard not wanting to get his job cut in the next round of budget bingo. He wants to do something useful, so he makes up a straw enemy and beats the hell out of it. His concern is for his own useless job and the fact that he will have to enter the real world and work like one of the people/proletariat and actually be answerable to a boss.
Jousting @ windmills has saved more government jobs and cost taxpayers more than Hillaries last two terms in office.

Youre right , money management IS a problem for young college attendees.
Mom and Dad spent high school buying everything for Jr. that his job at McDonalds didnt cover. So Jr.s first splash in the adult pool doesnt leave room to buy food because the cable bill is two months due, he already put in an order for an oz. of mexican pot and its his turn to buy beer this weekend, he had to buy more data minutes for his phone and gas for the graduation Stang costs waaaay too much.
The answer is; get a girlfriend, shower more and get a girlfriend. Get one with some meat on her bones, she likes to eat and will feed you. Big gals always try harder in the sack too. Win/win!

It really IS important to teach the young how the world works and how to get from point A to point B, before turning them loose on the wild , wild world.
OOOH baybeee baby, its a wild world, its hard to get by without a fat girl.
The difference is; dont pick up girls @ bars, pick up girls @ Dairy Queen!

Yeah, they do, or the Meta-cops will bust them for not doing the right thing.
There are meta-cops, right?
The Fed is answerable, right?
Someone is big enough to do something about it, if they dont , right?
If there is a law they have to obey it or face consequences, right?
We have a long list of examples of this , right?
Bush? Clinton? Reagan? Carter? Ford? NIXON... see, someone got caught, feel better? Johnson didnt get caught because he was funny and Kennedy didnt get caught because he was a soap opera. Only homely Quakers with shifty eyes get caught, WORD!

Yeah, and now that it is newsworthy, a whole bunch of cops and agencies are going to expend as many tax dollars as they can toward doing the Silk Road bit to this Grams. Of course, someone else will start one somewhere else and more tax dollars will disappear into the aether. Done often enough, this could cut funding to Repubmocrat programs which buy them votes, while polishing the donut for the enforcement agencies. Repubmocrats, not wanting to detract from ,doing it for the children, will attempt to enact more internet control to protect their usual modus craperandi. Look for the CIA to be knee deep in Grams a la Sandinista, and the whole mess swirls round and round till it gets stuck in the plumbing and the log will have to be plunged manually.

Instead of chicken filet, chicken legs or chicken wings, I buy a whole chicken and cut it up myself. The 2 filets I use to wok together with som vegetables and rice. Enough for 3-4 days.
1 day is some potatoes, chicken legs and potates.
The chicken legs and the carcass I cook and the meat I use for sandwiches. The water as stocking for soup. That is already 5 days of meat from a 4 EUR chicken.

I know that one supermarket does 50% of meat on mondays, because that will be the last day before the expire day. I can keep it in the freezer for another few days easily (including the chicken).

Look uo things about "living frugal. Don't follow everything, but instead see what you can easily do.

What I also did was buy a book with many wok recepeis in a second hand book store. The advantage you have with using a wok is that it is fast. Chinese cooking is the world first fast food.

Also always use a shoppinglist and don't go shopping hungry. A last is to NEVER buy bottled water. NOT EVER. And have a budget. Write everything down on what you sped it on. Or use any of the free programs or apps for whatever you use.

If you like pizza, learn how to make your own. Making your own dough will spare you a lot and they taste better. Spagetti is the number one food for students where I live (Belgium) because it is cheap if you make your own sauce and it can feed many when you invite people over.

As an extra bonus, when you have learned to cook, you can invite somebody over, which is cheaper then taking them out to dinner,and with a bit of luck they will have sex with you.

So yes, learning how to cook will save you a LOT of money. It will also help you in the long run. You will be able to sit down with your kids and have a meal without having to make cooking a drag. And there is no price you can put on that, no matter how rich you are.

If people think the NSA isn't all over the dark web, they be dummies.

The NSA isn't that concerned with where you buy your pot. They aren't even that concerned with where the local gangbanger buys his guns, or where the local perv sources his kiddie porn.

If you're going to wear the tin foil hat at least direct it at the appropriate three letter agencies: FBI, DEA, ATF, et. al.

True forward anonymity is a useful thing and it served the myriad dissidents escaping opression which is good. Being involved in it also meant facilitating the use of others involved in slavery, abuse of minors, and so on. On balance I decided that I could not justify facilitating the downside, no matter how important the upside was. There has to be a better way than dancing with the devil. If you dance with the devil, you will pay his fee.
