Comment: Who supported this man for ten years? (Score 1) 1032 1032

A lot of people went to work day in and day out at jobs they disliked or even despised, and set aside some of their meager wages in savings accounts or retirement accounts, so this asshole could live for free for ten years pursuing vanity degrees in areas of study that equipped him to do little more than better rationalize his shitty choices, and to lie to himself and others more skillfully about the meaning of that choice.

Fuck you Lee Siegel. It's one thing to fuck over the people who loaned you money; it's another to reframe your shitty actions to make you the victim, or even the hero.

It was pretty clear from the trailer that they douched up the Mad Max series real good. I won't watch it, but not because it has been ensnared in the incessant gender-war yammering that is almost inescapable these days.

Correct, these are called "costs of doing business" and should be treated as such by the employer, not clawed back from the employee. Auctioning off the employees to the card companies adds insult to injury.

Fuck those employers/slave-traders.
