I rarely participate in online debates with believers. There was a time when I would, but I came to not only find the person I was in discussion with insincere, but also not very knowledgeable in the topics they want to challenge. The one I’ve come across the most is Evolutionary Theory. Believers want to argue against evolution without having the most basic understanding of the subject.
It’s not the first time in the last few years that I’ve read an article that was actually jaw-dropping for me. In fact, it seems the last few years it happens more often than not. My brain races and I find myself thinking, what in the world?
This is so sad, it’s actually a bit, well, funny.
In case you cannot read what is written on the poster board:
“I have a Master of Arts degree in women studies. However, the only job I can find is as a bartender at a local restaurant. I owe over 60K in student loans. I am forced to rely on foodstamps and W.I.C.* to support my son.Is this the “American Dream” I worked so hard for? I am the 99 percent.”
Then there’s a link to occupywallst.org.
I have no idea what Wall Street has to do with her poor decision making in choosing a career but it seems to be a fad.
Hat Tip to AtheistLoki who tweeted this picture with the response “You chose poorly”.

This is part 2 of my previous post. I want to delve a little deeper into the idea of a college or university sanctioning a student without constitutional due process.
There’s been a debate/conversation (I still have a problem with using conversation when referring to Twitter) about a recent post by one of The Usual Suspects.
On the way into work this morning, I heard an interesting, no shocking news story on NPR.
I was actually looking for this the other day when I wrote this post.
Yes, these are (our?) Teachers protesting. Need I say more?
A little palette cleanser for this morning. It’s just too funny on one hand and sad on the other to pass up making a comment.
