I believe that everybody should get the chance to make something of themselves and that's not possible with the American school system since you need to either have above average intelligence or have special talents in sports to actually have a shot at getting a scholarship. If everybody could go to college they could choose to work hard to achieve their goals or get a low paying job. When you say that free education is "getting everything handed to you on a silver platter" it sounds like you think that some magical force does all the studying for you, but that's not how it works. If you want to be a doctor or a psychiatrist you have to work hard for several years and not just party or play video games 24/7.

I understand fully seeing as how I have a degree, that being said in many schools around the country kids can barely get through highschool and many of them don't give a shit. you give those same kids the option to go fuck around through college and it devalues the accomplishments of everybody else. You don't have to be from a rich family to go to college, paying loans back sucks, but it gives people who want the education bad enough a way to do it regardless of their background.

Actually with the way the system works now it's fairly easy for a disadvantaged student to get access to higher education in America.

For 4 year college you have to take a lot of debt but it's worth it, and 2 year colleges (community) are basically free.

Government and local grants cover most of the costs and they're not awarded based on academic success but on need. The government estimates the amount of money your family can provide for your education and pays the difference, up to $6,000 a year. For a community college, or even a university, that is the cost of tuition.

A majority of school's cost comes from housing. It costs almost (if not more than) 10k a year to room at my current college. For that I had to take out loans, but if I lived nearby I could have just continued to live with my parents.

I was third highest in my class with a gpa of 99.8.

I got one scholarship along with anybody else who got a 90 average or higher. That scholarship pays about 2 and a half grand a semester.
That's literally about 1/5 of tuition a semester at a half decent college.

If I was the valedictorian or salutatorian, I may have gotten a better scholarship, but considering the fact that neither the val or sal took ap credits in high school, I ended up with the short end of the stick for "working hard."

Hell, even the val and sal had to take out student loans at my school because I didn't go to a private school because my parents aren't filthy rich.

tl;dr You're fucking retarded. You don't know the situations of others. Check your privilege. I've always wanted to say that. Bitch.
#512 - ncsutroll (07/06/2014) [-]
what kind of fucked GPA system are you in based out of 100? 2.5 grand covers about 30-40% of many state schools tuitions which would reduce your loans quite a bit (except up north where everything is ridiculously expensive). There are hundreds of programs out there where you can apply and compete for scholarships. Are they full rides? no, but a few hundred bucks or a grand here and there adds up. Financial Aid gives people the option to be able to go. If you go virtually all on loans for 4 years and then major in humanities that's a personal problem. Other than that it's worth the cost
User avatar #513 - mrdrpage (07/06/2014) [-]
Many public high schools base GPA's out of 100, you twat.

Oh fucking joy. I covered less than half of tuition and still have to pay for housing and food on top of the other half of tuition (unless I'm going to a shit community college that no well paying job is going to take seriously).
#514 - ncsutroll (07/06/2014) [-]
housing and food = part time job

Most majors require volunteer hours or internships at some point.

the key is at some point. I had to do a semester long internship near the end of my degree, and that was a difficult one. but all worked out in the end

#261 - ncsutroll (07/05/2014) [-]
Can everybody? no. But everybody also doesn't have the drive to do what needs to be done to get those scholarships and grants. If it's your only way to higher education and you don't even so much as attempt to obtain them, then you didn't need to go anyways. There are plenty of ways to make a living here through trade without the need to go to college

"don't get paid that much" Some get paid over 100k a year and are expected to act above normal citizens, they are not supposed to lash back at criminals in a criminal manner just because they "started it". That is both childish and ridiculous. Police believe that they are above the law because they enforce it. This is not the case and needs to change.
User avatar #177 - collateraldamageco (06/17/2014) [-]
1. You need to be on the force for like 20 years to even be able to make that much
2. Yelling at someone isn't criminal
3. Not all police believe they are above the law, most become police because they respect law and want to uphold it.
Please educate yourself on matters before commenting on them

Because shouting is a fucking criminal manner. Next time you yell I expect someone to slap a pair of irons on you for being a criminal.

User avatar #63 - damonisgay (06/17/2014) [-]
The guy on the right is an asshole yes. But police have a sacred responsibility that comes with the powers they receive upon becoming police officers regardless of how much they get paid. There job is to apprehend people who appear to have committed a crime and for the courts to decide whether or not the did commit a crime. With the exception of a circumstance were the lives of the police or a civilian is threatened in which case deadly force may be necessary. Any police officer who takes punishment into his own hands/ abuses this power to harass people when a crime has not been committed should not be a cop. Policing is a shit profession to be in, yes but for those who decide to live a life of service suffering is often required and there sacrifice should be respected. (excuse the grammar)

Cop gets yelled at

Cop yells back

Cop is "abusing his power"

WAT
User avatar #89 - damonisgay (06/17/2014) [-]
I'm just putting into context the duties of police in reply to ncstroll in which saying that cops don't get paid much so it's excusable that they aren't always going to deal with people shit. I'm not certain where I stand on cops yelling back if they are yelled at. I don't think I would if I was a cop if only for the reason of it creates a less well defined line of not getting personally involved in a situation other then my official duty's. At the very least its unprofessional.
#102 - poppenhoffer (06/17/2014) [-]
The duty of an officer is to protect the people. That's pretty much it. Hell, according to the Desmedt use of force continuum that's used in the US, the cop could pepper spray the guy for getting in his face like that because according to said continuum, the officer is always allowed to use one level of force greater than the suspect is using (that's to say if suspect takes a swing, cop can taze him. Guy has his own tazer and tries to use it, cop can shoot him, etc.). That whole "cops need to act a certain way" thing is bullshit. If you're dealing with someone who may get violent, the last thing you should be doing is trying to be as polite as possible because they'll think you're weak and then they may take a swing.
#202 - ohemgeezus (06/17/2014) [-]
Very first sentence, "The duty of an officer is to protect the people." I'm not going to bother reading the rest of what you said because you obviously don't know what you're talking about. The duty of cops are to uphold the law. You're pretty dumb.
#90 - solomonkane (06/17/2014) [-]
A cop yelling at someone isnt seen as abusing power or abusing in general cause Cops have set the "abusing power" bar pretty low, So a cop yelling at someone isnt even noticeable. Cause there is a LOT more things they could be doing. Keep in mind, the dude is allowed to have a gun, so if chooses to yell at you, count yourself lucky.

Survival wasn't dependant upon bears.

And about bear hunting history in North America:

"...In 1818, a “War of Extermination” against wolves and bears was declared in Ohio.[15] Bear pelts were usually sold for 2-20 dollars in the 1860s.[4] Between 1850 and 1920 grizzly bears were eliminated from 95% of their original range,..."

Plus I don't see how killing them for trading their pelts would make it any less immoral.
#111 - ncsutroll (06/08/2014) [-]
2-20 dollars was a shitload of money back then. we have no idea what this man did for a living and it wasn't like you could just go get a job managing a store or something back then, the thought that hunting/killing an animal is hippy BS, if the animal was used, then so be it. As it is today in many areas bears are overpopulated again. TL;DR - bear is delicious
