Subject: Diversity departments related to college costs

“Diversity departments related to college costs?”

“Cost Of College Degree In U.S. Has Increased 1,120 Percent In 30 years.
The cost of a college degree in the United States has increased "12 fold"; college tuition and fees have increased 1120 percent since the late 1960s and early 1970s.”

During my forty-odd years of real-job employment in the private sector, I have worked with and around many men, with spouses and friends, who were always working, saving and struggling to pay taxes and then tuition to send their (village) children to various colleges and universities without PC perversities. Parents were purposely paying for productive educations, not for cultural, political and societal indoctrinations. Can some of this delightful diversity-department drivel, inclusive [excluding Hannity] institutional insanity, and marvelous multicultural mush be honestly equated and related to the inflated [1,120 percent] costs of college knowledge, during these past forty years?
I remember my coworkers’ anger and fear as it got harder and harder for them to make and pay those blue-collar dollars, year after year; most of them tried to work overtime or part-time outside. I have a hunch that some of their wives were working to pay for tuition, gasoline and lunch. Continual and cumulative college costs and incremental inflation added to their aggravation throughout the nation; despite immigration, legislation, regulation, taxation and academic buddies doing gender and multicultural studies. My proposed common-sense educational reforms would not make academics feel safe, secure or warm.
Like ya know, some parents, students and taxpayers might naturally and normally (if not morally) not think it fair that they are paying for some of these passionate part-time professors, angry affirmative-action academic activists and advocates, devout diversity disciples, and multicultural media messiahs to be figuratively and literally flying through the air everywhere; to participate, perform, pester, pose, protest and speak in public and on radio and TV shows. They and their fawning fans may seriously state that they are really representing their academic brands.
If these educational employees and academia leaders get tenure and cannot be fired, before they get into government and retire, can we insensitive jerks at least budget-cut some of their prestigious perks of work? Can we end or limit their personal political missions by withholding our taxes and tuitions? Can parents, students and taxpayers demand and establish some sane sensible common-sense educational and institutional priorities; besides memberships within athletic departments, fraternities and sororities?
Oh, would it do me any good to ask for or rant for a literary job or an academic or government grant? I can be paid to behave and be bribed to be nice for a reasonable [cheaper than E. Gordon Gee] price…with expenses.

After all of these violence studies, these elite academia buddies want to take my guns away, while forgetting to mention the fatherless Democrat bastards and brats of unwed mothers and others who breed dumb young illiterate inconsiderate violent clueless useless savages who we have to feed but do not need, their only job being to drug deal, steal and rob.

Today's Sunday issue of the Dayton Daily Snooze: Two full editorial/opinion pages, just like the good old day, except for not one Speak Up or letter to the editor; just the typical syndicated columns and delightful dingbat UD diversity drivel from pet bed wetters.

Listen to the bitchin' as loony libs lie and try to excuse this academic inflation rate, while accusing questioners and critics of being ignorant and jealous of education hate, like when they likewise question and criticize the Obamas and the Welfare State, unable to accept the bitchin' about their failures but good intentions.

The edu-nuts and their media slutts are mad and sad because we ignorant envious little people don't kiss or miss their butts. They do not want to hear us bitch or holler, because they know that we cannot cut big education by one damned dollar; while we make their staffs laugh with our gaffs.

Some dumb college students who leave home still work for college knowledge instead of taking loans. Educrats and Edutards do not care or notice that they work hard, for minimum wages and tips, so that their part-time activist professors can take expensive trips. Some have the balls to even say that parents and students demand climbing walls! Education budgets can never be cut, according to media whores and edusluts who want us to kiss their butts. During the past 40 years, college costs have been inflated by over 1,000 percent, paid by parents and students who cannot pay their rent. Maybe they can bitch and pitch a tent?

Is there any college-education-inflation outrage coming from those silly students who are still working for tips and the minimum wage; like those who used to work their way through college to pay for productive profitable useful knowledge? More for employment, regardless of their personal or political enjoyment? Do the edubabbling media whores tell them that they are going to just have to work harder and for a few hours more?
