Yep. The number of people still taking degrees in gender and/or ethnic studies, underwater basket-weaving and the like never fails to astonish me. What’s more, when they finally graduate (weighed down with student loans totaling tens, if not hundreds, of thousands of dollars), they bitch and moan and whine about having to repay the loans, and default at the slightest opportunity. I know of several who’ve appeared overseas, teaching English in third-world countries, who openly and defiantly state that they refuse to go back to the USA because that would entail accepting responsibility for their student loans and repaying them. The attitude of “I’m entitled!” is astonishing – albeit hopelessly naive, of course. So much for our advanced society!
Is it any wonder that so many illegal aliens flood across our borders, intent on obtaining the same benefits (?) for themselves? After all, they (or at least some of them) must surely reason, if Yanquis themselves can get away with such behavior, why can’t they?
