FFOT: More Speshul Snowflakes

Students at a university in California tried storming a Board of Trustees meeting, and rightfully got faces full of pepper spray for their efforts  Apparently, California is so broke it's cutting funding to its leftwing voter factories.  Interestingly enough, the school that had the near riot happen had, in desperation, done something to keep the classes cut by budget cuts. 
Under the tuition plan, believed to be the first of its kind in the nation, the school is creating a nonprofit organization called the Santa Monica Career and Transfer Alliance, which will offer the courses at full cost.

The foundation will offer about 50 class sections in courses such as accounting, art history, economics, Japanese, music history, speech and psychology — 18 courses in all. If the classes fill up, more will be added, depending on the availability of instructors and classrooms. California residents will pay about $540 per class and non-residents will pay about $840.

Students will be able to apply for some financial aid and the college is providing about 300 scholarships of about $300 each for needy students.
But any nuance was apparently lost to the students. They are reported to have chanted, “No cuts, no fees, education should be free!”

Deep breath...breathe out...rant mode on:

(Warning: there's more profanity, and more screaming [all caps, italicized all-caps, and bolded all-caps] than non-profanity below the fold.  Don't click to read more if you don't want to have your hair blown back.)



Free?  Free???  Listen, cupcake, There Ain't No Such Thing As A Free Lunch!  Where do you FUCKING FUCKTARDED FUCKSTICK TWATWAFFLES think your FUCKING classes FUCKING COME from?  Where do YOU FUCKING LITTLE SPOILED FUCKING ROTTEN FUCKING SPUNK-SOAKED TWATFARTS think the FUCKING buildings come from?  Do you FUCKING realize that the FUCKING university FUCKING pays FUCKING taxes and FUCKING upkeep on the FUCKING buildings you plant your FUCKING lazy FUCKING ASSES in (when you can fucking be fucking arsed to fucking go to fucking class)?  What about the FUCKING equipment?  Do you think the FUCKING desks and FUCKING CHALKBOARDS, WHITE BOARDS AND FUCKING SMARTBOARDS GROW ON FUCKING TREES YOU CAN FUCKING PAY FUCKING INIGO CHINGADERA VALDEZ A QUARTER OF MINIMUM FUCKING WAGE TO SWIM ACROSS THE FUCKING RIO GRANDE TO PICK FOR YOUR FUCKING LAZY FUCKING FUCKSTICK SELVES?   Do you FUCKING think that the FUCKING board of trustees is FUCKING PAID ENOUGH TO FUCKING DEAL WITH YOUR FUCKING SPOILED FUCKING ROTTEN WHINING FUCKING PROTESTS?  NOBODY is fucking paid enough for that fucking shit.

    1. A-fucking-mazing. To think that I'm privileged to pay for the education of the little fuckwits that won't bother to read their textbooks or revise their fucking papers. I'm fucking overwhelmed.

      (If you can't tell, I'm picking up papers, and I have a student who's failing the class on not following the assignment guidelines and turning in shit for papers, without bothering to try to revise.)

    2. That's it. Let it out. Catharsis is good for the blood pressure.

    3. So is going to the range. Someday, I'll have time to do that. In the meantime, dropping f-bombs will have to do.

  2. So that's why I saw a giant blue bonfire in a general northeasterly direction.

  3. Yeah, my usual response to the "education should be free" crowd is, "Yeah. Because professors don't need to eat and the lights and computers power themselves."

    I also have considerable wrath towards the few students I have who take out student loans and openly say they have no intention of repaying them...they figure the next sop thrown to voters is going to be forgiveness of student loans.

    I just hope that the higher education system doesn't totally crash and burn in this country before I have a chance to retire.

    1. It's one of the main reasons I'm trying to get stories done to try to publish. I'm getting so disgusted by the students coming into my virtual classroom that it's only a matter of time before I unload on one via email and get fired.
