The students at the--yawn--University of Puerto Rico are--yaaawn--protesting again and threatening another strike.
Yaaaaaawn. Reminds Me it's sunny and warm in the Sahara today. Big deal.
Of course, the students are protesting the socioeconomic inequality that undermines the very foundation of Our nation...
Then they must be protesting the rampant corruption that pervades what We sneeringly call "government" and "business" in order to help focus attention on how much We are losing day after fershluggin' day...
Hold on, I'm wiping My eyes here... Seems the students are protesting over--money. Again.
A new--yawn--$200 fee that the University wants to charge to offset--yaaawn--debts.
A debt that the federal government has agreed will be covered by the Pell Grant. Yaaawn.
It means that some students will see a small decrease in the amount of money they get from Pell Grants, adjusted as they were last year. But the idea that these students could be out some $85 or so every semester has them in a frenzy--again--because Let's face, nothing upsets one of Our students more than seeing money given to them for nothing going to someone else. Burns their britches. Pisses them off. Makes them want to act, you know? 'Cuz this is important, man!
Here are some words of advice, Oh Students of Free Money: Get a job. Be frugal. Focus on the big picture. And learn something, instead of using college as a social club/adult day care center.
One more thing: stop making Me yawn.
The Jenius Has Spoken.
