Hmmm...if he's so proud of his accomplishment, why is he hiding behind that sign? Sort of reminds me of listing to Mr. Pizza man Cain. Oh if it were that easy. Nothing like blaming the victims.
You're entirely missing the point and concentrating on (or trying to deflect attention to) something entirely inconsequential
to the message being delivered.
Oh cut the shit. Plausible? Of course it is. It nearly mirrors my own situation (not quite the 3.8 GPA unfortunately). I won't elaborate on it because I don't need to. Nor do I need to "show my face" as it were because it has no purpose in this argument
(nor the author of the photo). All I'll say is that I've paid my way
through college with scholarships, TAing, and government student loans (which I am thankful for), just as my parents did to move our family from near poverty level through two recessions to their current level of relative comfort. I have zero
sympathy for chumps who took out student loans and are indebted thinking that unemployable fluff degrees in something like library science or anthropology were worthy of a such a risk, even in good times. I just hope that there is no debt forgiveness, lest the loan programs end and any future children not be able to take advantage of such loans in a responsible manner.
So don't pretend that the 99% are some single group that associates itself with the OWS people.
And if this were true, why would he have hidden his face!
Because it's not the point of the image. Hell, some lunatic might try to pull some shit with him/her too. Who knows with that group?
This is just a plant to undermine the Occupy movement.
So dissent is not tolerated huh? Let this movement fail if so. I will not succumb to the will of such a mob.
None of whom is asking for any free lunch.
