Tell Your Kids, No You Are Not Going To College Dammit!!

Why did YOU go to college? and why pay to send your kids to college? I feel that going to college and acquiring a degree is a big multimillion dollar scam that has been fueled by the “career industry” for ages. I mean seriously even before these times where having a double p.h.D and a double masters means not a damn thing people rarely if ever go into their field of studies.  So you spend all this damn money for an education that you rarely use (I know this for a fact. I haven’t used all those letters and numbers and little numbers on top of numbers and signs with slashes from math class yet.. and I’m… well my age isn’t important but you get my point.)  I feel aside from specific areas you don’t have to obtain a degree.  Here is another example, in Georgia if you have a computer science degree but do not have a certification from cisco or juniper etc. you will not get hired.  true story! For those that don’t quite understand the example i’ll break it down.  A computer science degree runs you close to a hundred grand could be more could be less depending on where you decide to go to school, A certification in cisco/juniper etc runs you about 200 dollars everytime you take the test to get certified.  So you tell me, what route would you have gone?? Below are some reasons to not send your kids to college,  I have to say they make damn good sense even though I don’t agree with some of them due to the kids not the ideas. You just cannot do certain things with certain kids.. anyway you be the judge and leave your comments.

Anyway here 7 reasons to not send your kids to college and these reasons are brought to you by  James Altucher a finance columnist.

1. More than 60% of people entering college take more than four years to graduate. So whatever you think yourkids are going to cost you to go to college, add 20% to 100%.

2. The cost of the average tuition has gone up nine-fold since 1976 versus seven-fold for health care and three fold for inflation.

3. The differential in lifetime income between a college graduate and a non-college graduate over a 45 year career is approximately $800,000 (read on)

4. If  i put that $200,000 that I would’ve spent per child to cover tuition costs, living expenses, books, etc. into  bonds yielding just 3% (any muni bonds) and let it compound for 49 years ( adding backin the 4 years of college) I get $851,000. So my kids can avoid college and still end up with the same amount in the worst case.

5. If smart, motivated, ambitious kids (the type of kids who get the most out of college) avoided college I’m sure the differential would be a lot less than $800,00and may even be negative (i.e. they would make more if they avoided college and started going into the business world earlier)

6. The average debt burden of a college graduate is $23,000 up from $13,000 10 years ago. Students with professional degrees can see their debt burden go higher than $200,000. Total student borrowing has topped $75,000,000,000. It’s too much for young adults just starting their careers.

7. Alternatives to spending $200,000 per kidso they can waste four years of their lives:

Give them $20,000 to start one to five businesses.

most businesses fail but that’s ok. The educationfrom the process lasts a lifetime and the networkyou build when you start a business will lead to many futurejobs and possibilities.

Travel the world. That would be an education thatpays many dividends and is much cheaper. Your kids can then go to college with a much more mature view of the world.

Work. They won’t get the best jobsbut they can make money,network, get a “hands-on” education, learn the value of money and go to college in their 20’s when THEY can afford it — and make every dollar worth it. Plus your kids willhave a more clear idea of what they want to do in the world.

Volunteer. Let them see a side of life that is harder and where they can add value. An education like thatis invaluable.

Do nothing but read. Get the benefits of a college education without paying the $200,000. I’d be happy to support a child that wants to home school a college education.

Woman Jailed For Not Allowing Son To See Rapist Dad In Prison

 

A Brooklyn mom has been tossed in jail because she refused to send her 9-year-old son to an Arizona prison to visit his father, a serial rapist locked away for decades.

Sukhwant Herb is serving 50 days on Rikers Island – in solitary confinement, she says – because she ignored a court order mandating twice-a-year prison visits for her son Seon.

She agreed to the visitation deal with representatives of the boy’s father in September, her lawyer said.

Then she changed her mind.

“I don’t want my son in that environment, seeing the prisoners in jumpers, and the slamming of gates, the noise. My son is 9, and it’s horrible, horrific,” Herb told the News in a phone call. “I’m locked here in a room, locked in 23 hours a day, with a TV.

“I turn [the TV] on just to hear another voice. The first time they took me outside for some fresh air was after 13 days in jail and that was for only one hour.”

The 29-year-old mom from East New York can have visitors and make some phone calls.

But she doesn’t want her son visiting her, either. “Not in this environment,” she said.

Brooklyn Family Court Judge Robin Sheares shipped Herb off to Rikers on June 10 after having her arrested on a warrant.

The judge declined to comment.

David Bookstaver, spokesman for the state Office of Court Administration, said Herb was jailed because she missed five court appearances.

She had ample opportunity to try and modify the visitation order and is a flight risk, he said.

The circumstances of Herb’s incarceration “are highly unusual,” Bookstaver acknowledged, “but warranted.”

Bookstaver said Herb “was given numerous opportunities to answer simple questions to avoid incarceration, but was uncooperative, could not produce proof of where she’d been, or where her son was attending school.”

Herb’s version of the hearing is quite different.

“I kept telling the judge where I was living, that I had a house in Ohio and was planning to move there with my son. But [the judge] kept screaming at me, ‘I don’t believe you, I don’t care. I don’t believe you.'”

Herb, who said she worked with a financial services firm dealing with foreclosures, is planning a move to Cambridge, Ohio, with her son and a 6-month-old daughter she has with her fiance, Dwayne Waithe, of Jamaica, Queens. The boy is living with Waithe while Herb is in jail.

Waithe said he was willing to put up his home, his trucking business and his bank account for Herb’s bail, but was shot down.

“Even killers get bail,” Waithe said. “This is unbelievable.”

Herb conceded she made many mistakes in her dealings with Sheares. “It was a poor decision not to hire a lawyer earlier and fight all this in court,” she said. “Still, this is wrong.”

She recently hired a lawyer, Dale Frederick.

“It is not in the best interest of any child to incarcerate his mother for refusing to allow that child to go to a penitentiary, particularly where the father is a convicted serial rapist,” Frederick said.

The father of Herb’s son, Seon Jonas, 31, was convicted in 2003 of raping three women in Phoenix and is serving 27 years in an Arizona state prison.

Herb said she and Jonas, who met 11 years ago in New York, were living together in Phoenix when the rapes took place. Two of Jonas’ victims were teenagers, she added.

“I had no idea of his secret life, that he did that,” she said. “He was a kind man, was never abusive to me when we were living together.”

After Jonas was imprisoned, Herb came back to Brooklyn with her son and moved in with her mother. The boy has not seen has father since at least the beginning of 2009.

“I am just devastated by this,” said her mother, Gloria Herb.

Herb’s aunt, Shelly Alexander, visited Herb last week and said, “She was just crying all the time.

“You sit across the table from the prisoner and right next to us was a woman who was a murderer.

“My niece made bad choices, but that doesn’t make her a bad woman. June 30 is her birthday and she’s going to spend it in jail.”

It’s unclear what will happen after she serves her sentence.

Now What Floyd??

MANILA, Philippines – Manny Pacquiao and the powerful Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) are on the same page when it comes to blood-testing.

That blood should not be drawn from boxers very close to a fight because, according to a medical analysis, it may cause “hematomas, infections or other injuries.”

Fanhouse boxing editor Lem Satterfield yesterday reported on the results of an NSAC hearing regarding the testing for steroids or other illegal substances, favoring Pacquiao over Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s demand for random blood-testing Olympic style, one that would require blood being drawn “all the way to the fight.”

Dr. David Watson, the former chief ringside physician, said the negative effects of blood-testing can take place if it is conducted “within three weeks of a fight.”

In the failed negotiations for the Pacquiao-Mayweather superfight, supposed to have taken place last March 13, the undefeated American insisted on blood-testing 14 days before the fight. The Filipino pound-for-pound king said he can’t do it nearer than 24 days.

Recently, however, Pacquiao softened up on his stand just to get the fight done, saying he’d do it 14 days before and right after the fight. Then reports came out that Mayweather’s new demand was to have it done “all the way to the fight” and it could mean on the eve or the day of the fight itself.

The NSAC, through its executive director, Keith Keizer, couldn’t find the reason for this.

“Dr. Watson has done thousands of weigh-in physicals and done thousands of fights. He’s viewed tons of medical records. What Dr. Watson was kind of saying was that on some occasions with fighters, he would notice hematomas on the inside of the elbow where they gave blood,” he was quoted by Fanhouse as saying.

This could be the reason why the USDA (Doping Agency) stopped drawing blood from Mayweather and Shane Mosley at least 18 days before their May 1 encounter which the former won with pretty much ease.

The NSAC position now means that Pacquiao and Mayweather should agree to blood-testing probably no closer than three weeks to the fight, if ever the fight, being pushed for Nov. 13, takes place.

The Fanhouse article said Mayweather submitted blood and urine samples on March 22, April 1, April 13 and then on the night directly after the fight, and urine only on April 3, April 6, April 21 and April 24. Mosley had blood and urine drawn on March 23, March 31, April 12 and directly after the bout on fight night, and urine only on April 3, April 6, April 21 and April 24.

“Well, I’m not a doctor, but you have to realize that a fighter uses his arms a lot like a runner uses his legs. You can’t take blood too close to the fight. Two or three weeks before the fight he can get a hematoma which can prevent him from either training or fighting,” said Pacquiao’s promoter, Bob Arum.

“If it’s done further out before the fight, then there’s no real problem. But closer to the fight, there’s a real problem. For a fighter to lose the last week in training or the week before the fight is a disaster for a fighter. That could happen if he gets a hematoma in the arm that’s used for the blood test. USDA, whatever, they might say, must have recognized this, and I believe that that’s why they didn’t test for blood before 18 days.”

Is Floyd Scared To Fight Manny?

Topless Beach A Possibility In N.J.

New Jersey has a nude beach in a remote corner of Sandy Hook, but no ‘topless’ beach anywhere else along its roughly 140 mile coastline. Asbury Park may be about to change that.

“I sit topless at my house so I don’t have a problem with it,” said Nicole White, 35, as she laid on the beach in Asbury Park with her bra strap undone, while showing she has no tan line back there.

“Why not?” asked Deputy Mayor and City Councilman John Loffredo, who asked the City Manager and City Attorney to come back with a full report in time for its July 7th meeting.

“It’s a person’s prerogative if they want to go topless,” said Loffredo, who noted that it is common not just in Europe, but on Miami Beach as well.

Beachgoers Might Soon Bare More in NJ

Beachgoers Might Soon Bare More in NJ

The nude beach on Sandy Hook, called Gunnison, is sanctioned by the U.S. Park Service, as is an even more remote nude beach on Fire Island in New York, both part of the Gateway National Recreation Area.

But no municipality in New Jersey officially sanctions ‘topless’ sections, and some, like Belmar according to Loffredo, actually ban topless sunbathing.

And that suits beach goer Courtney Phillips, 29 of Ocean Township just fine.

“Some things need to be saved for intimate moments with their significant other in the bedroom,” said Phillips, who added “Not for everybody to see.”

John Boon of Matawan, who was at the beach with his children Kayla and Madison, admitted he personally has no problem with topless beaches. But watching his two young daughters he quickly added “I don’t want them to be exposed to that.”

But the proposal being considered by the city council would authorize a ‘topless optional’ section only at the far northern end of Asbury Park’s long beachfront, away from any homes, or even the boardwalk.

Still, men could walk up there just to ogle.

White’s response was dismissive. “I could care less, honestly.”

As to the chance that if they go topless they might as well go all the way, Deputy Mayor Loffredo said “I don’t think that’s gonna happen.”

Kevin Costner Oil Clean Up Centrifuge

Kevin Costner hopes his invention can make the oil spill saga have a Hollywood ending.

The “Field of Dreams” actor called his oil separator a “life preserver,” saying that his device can help clean up the Gulf and that it’s not too late to put it into action. BP has already purchased 32 of the machines.

“I’m not on a white horse,” Costner said. “I’m not the savior to this thing. But I’m kind of saying, like, I got a life preserver.”

The device, which is designed to be brought to the spill site on barges, can separate 99% of oil from water and recycle up to 2,000 barrels per day. Costner spent 15 years and $20 million of his own money to develop the machine.

“If 20 of my V20s would have been at the “Exxon Valdez” 90 percent of that oil would have been cleaned up within the week,” Costner said.

BP tested a version of Costner’s device earlier this year, but the test failed after the machine gave the oil a peanut butter-like consistency. That problem has since been fixed, and BP is retesting the machine now in the hopes of getting it to the Gulf soon.

In my opinion they should have tried Kev’s idea as soon as the bullshit ideas BP had failed.. But hey that’s just me.. If this shit work your boy Kev Costner is gonna be mofin paaaaiiiidddd..

DO You Think Kevin Costners Centrifuge Will Work?

Seattle Police Clocks Female In The Eye…WOW

 Wow… see this is the bullshit right here, cop doesn’t have any excuse to punch that girl in the face like that none whatsoever. This is just another example of how police can pretty much do anything they want to us. Now if that girls father,brother,uncle, cousin or a family member just beat that cop down im pretty sure they would get prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. I’m also sure that this cop will probably only get reprimanded and/or suspended for a month WITH pay. SMH..

NYC Mayor Bloomberg Robbed…

A Republican operative was indicted Monday on charges he exploited his political reputation to swindle $1.1 million from Mayor Michael Bloomberg, claiming he would use funds to help guard against election fraud but instead buying a house, prosecutors said.

John Haggerty duped Bloomberg and his political advisers into giving the money to the state Independence Party to help with ballot security during the mayor’s campaign for a third term, District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance Jr. said. Haggerty then laundered the money and used it for personal expenses in the months after the election, Vance said.

Sooooo what!! the Mayor is a damn billionaire, he won’t miss a measley 1 mill…I’m sure he spends waayyyy more than that in a year…shit this fucker bought himself another term as Mayor of NYC so why the fuck should we care.. but hey thats just my opinion.
