My Worthless Degree

Quotes from this story from the left-leaning “Slate” magazine by a woman with a Master degree in “Bioethics” who tries to make the case that the US Taxpayers should help pay off of $200,000 in student loans because she was too stupid to understand that she had borrowed $200,000 to get both a bachelor’s & Master’s degree in a low paying field and that she had willingly signed loan documents without knowing what she was signing (but was well informed enough to vote for the next president of the United States at least once during that same time frame) 

Quotes from the linked story: 

“After finishing my master’s degree in 2008, I found out—as in, I didn’t already know—that I had $200,000 in student debt.  

Some well-paying professions might make this amount manageable, but for a bioethicist like me, it’s been crushing. 

Having followed the common advice to study what I loved, I had abandoned my initial plans to focus on biology and majored in music performance, but also minored in philosophy and was a few courses short of pre-med. By my senior year, however, I realized I was drawn to a subfield of applied ethics called bioethics, which deals with controversial ethical issues in science and medicine.

Like most people with loans, I started getting repayment letters within six months of leaving school. 

I already knew that I had about $70,000 in federal loans from Penn and some federal loans from Conn—but I had no idea I also owed $100,000 in Sallie Mae–serviced private loans. 

I was shocked. It turned out that my parents and Conn had had me ink them during my semesterly flurry of document-signing without discussing them with me. Now I was making $50,000 a year in an expensive region with close to $200,000 in loans.”

Christianity out of Christmas itself

Tom Mullen 

*According to a recent Fairleigh Dickinson University poll, nearly 40% of Americans believe politicians are attempting to remove Christianity out of Christmas itself. 

In 2013, only 29% of Americans believed this, signaling a significant growth that should be concerning for the future.

*71% of those who voted for Trump in 2020 compared to 14% who voted for Biden feel this way, showing an enormous discrepancy based on political preference. 

*Obama did not even mention Christmas in his holiday card his entire Presidency, leading many to believe that Christmas is being canceled by the highest office in the nation. If that can happen, then there is no telling where it ends.

*Several high-profile Christmas trees have been burned in recent weeks, including the 50-foot tree at Fox Square in NYC just a few days ago.

Biden’s Top 10 Hits to Energy Dependence

Daniel Turner – Power the Future 

https://www.worldometers.info/coal/coal-reserves-by-country/ 

President Joe Biden signed an executive order yesterday setting new goals for the federal government to achieve net-zero by 2050. The order comes just after the administration laid out its plans for achieving the 2050 net-zero goal at the COP26 climate summit in Scotland. 

Power The Future Launches “Biden’s Top 10 Hits to Energy Dependence” 

Lowlights Robbed America Of Our Energy Independence 
December 21, 2021 

Washington, D.C. – Today, Power The Future, a non-profit organization that advocates for America’s energy industry and its workers, released “Biden’s Top 10 Hits to Energy Dependence.” This infographic documents how, in less than a year, the Biden Administration has transformed America from energy independent to reliant on other countries for our energy needs. 

“Given his hostility to the industry, it’s ironic that the only thing Joe Biden deserves in his stocking this Christmas is a lump of coal,” said Daniel Turner, founder and executive director of Power The Future. “From day one of his Administration, Biden and his team have been pushing an extreme anti-energy agenda, which has worked out as well as his Afghanistan surrender. Sadly, misguided policies lead to undesirable consequences, and we are all quite literally paying the price this holiday season, with energy prices on the rise across the board and our energy independence robbed from us faster than the Grinch stole Christmas.” 

The lowlights of “Biden’s Top 10 Hits to Energy Dependence” include: 

  1. January 21, 2021: Cancelling the Keystone XL Pipeline and the 11,000 U.S. jobs and $1.6 billion of gross wages it was projected to generate in 2021. 
  2. January 21, 2021: Halting all further efforts to put Alaskans to safely develop the 1002 area of Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) and its estimated 7.6 billion barrels of recoverable oil and 7 trillion cubic feet of natural gas. 
  3. January 22, 2021: Issuing a moratorium on federal lands production that accounts for 25% of the nation’s crude oil supply. 
  4. March 2, 2021: Preparing a review of the federal oil and gas leasing program to further slow down domestic production. 
  5. May 19, 2021: Waiving sanctions on the Russian Nord Stream 2 pipeline while standing by his decision to cancel the Keystone XL pipeline here in the United States. 
  6. July 7, 2021: Begging OPEC to pump more oil, after crude prices hit their highest levels in six years 
  7. August 13, 2021: Prioritizing his so-called “Build Back Better” spending agenda that includes 30 tax increases totaling $3 trillion over the next decade, including roughly a dozen tax increases on oil and gas taxpayers. 
  8. October 14, 2021: Shifting the blame for astronomical energy prices onto energy companies’ ‘anti-competitive practices.’ 
  9. November 2, 2021: Jetting across the Atlantic Ocean to attend the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26) and pledging to spend $555 billion of American taxpayer dollars on climate change. 
  10. November 5, 2021: Biden’s Energy Secretary, Jennifer Granholm, laughed in the face of an interviewer asking about domestic production. 

A gallon of gasoline averaged $2.379/gallon on Biden’s inauguration. The average in December is $3.323/gallon – an increase of nearly 40 percent.
