Of course he will. He's looking for the "PROGRESS", "HOPE", and "CHANGE" that Obama promised in the last election.

Union Leaders is an oxymoron. They're only in it for the money. How about an "OCCUPY A BJOB" protest.

When Ben made the choice to get a degree in sociology, just what kind of job did he think that was supposed to get him?

I'm sure Ben thought he'd get an entry-level job with his Sociology degree that pays six figures. Ben has the same problem as BJ (she decided to get her degree in Fine Arts). Maybe Ben should follow BJ and choose substitute teaching as a career.

This is a better whopper than any of BJ's!!

5 million bucks? Maybe in monopoly money.

If you are a 5 time millionaire, why are here wasting your time trolling topix?

You are a real Liar.

Who care what you think. You are a pathetic loser.
Do something constructive about your problem. Good night.

Wouldn't it be funny though, if there was some douche millionaire in Scotts Valley who talks like a caveman and busts on your carefully worded complaints that amount to nothing?
It's not totally far fetched.

Most self made millionaires, and others
who have worked themselves up are usually
not the kind of people you want mad at you.
You don't get rich by being nice.

You don't buy a house and make a living
by smoking weed in Mom's basement or hanging
at some local coffee shop nursing a coffee you
had to beg strangers for the money to buy.

Dopers, drunks and bums...losers and sissies.

Stoned and stupid is no way to go through life.

Who needs a socialogist in a business anyway?

Stupid should be painfull, the world doesn't owe

you a living once you are full grown and able bodied.

Another sissie anarchist from the sidelines of life.

Rest assured the hippies will be evicted and when

appropiate, those in charge need to be identified and

arrested and given jail time so that they do not act

in this way again.

The day the people of Santa Cruz wake up and back the

SCPD in doing what is necessary to restore proper order

will be the day families take their children downtown again.

Actually jeffie would like to bite BJ's mega-pillow of a rear end. That is if they'd unlock the door of his rubber room.

I think he's a closet case myself.
Just look at his hatred for Women.

He'd be much better off to stop fighting
his true nature and be the person he is inside.

It's so sad when people live a lie.

Come out of the closet Jeff.
