This is classic OWS stupidity. One of several protesters complains to Citibank about loans that she voluntarily took out for college, loans that amount to over $100k, and now that she’s going to have a $1600 payment every month and doesn’t have a job, she blames Citibank. But how is this Citibank’s fault? She even said her parents allowed her to take out these big loans because they wanted her to have a great education. But now that she’s jobless, instead of showing up at the White House to protest, she shows up at the bank to blame them. How ridiculous!

When I was looking for a college to attend, I saw some that charged $20k per year. I quickly did the math and realized I didn’t want $80K in loan debt after I graduated, so I chose a much cheaper state college and ended up with around $21k in debt. In reality it was me dabbling in the real world, living paycheck to paycheck before I went to college that gave me enough wisdom to make a better choice for myself. I wanted a way out of poverty and finally made the big choice to go to college. The last thing I wanted was a huge amount of debt.

Now I don’t know this one girl’s story, but I’m betting that she wanted to go to a college of her choosing and after months of whining about it, her parents finally yielded to her choice since she was all growed up. And now look at her. What a fine ignoramus she has become. Obama would be so proud.

There’s more whining in the video below:

    Who wants everything we need and more importantly what we want for free! It’s a right isn’t it? So nice of them to recognize the workers at the bank- working today. The videos get more revealing of the stupidity of these fools, puppets.

    Hey, genius, why don’t you go protest the universities who charged you that large sum?

    • LadyLiberty2000

      My thoughts exactly! How did she make the leap to the evil corporations being responsible for her high tuition/debt? In her world, the schools are bad for allowing students to take out “these loans.” Hey smarty, they want to get paid for the “service” they are providing you . . . uh oh, they sound just like those evil corporations! Conspiracy alert!!

      Yes, she should protest the college that charged her all that money for that worthless degree. I’ll bet she majored in “Gender Studies”.

      She went to a nice “free” public university that taught her all these fine attributes like blaming others for the consequences her choices and protesting banks that gave her the ability to go to the nice college in the first place.

    Loved your analysis, RS!

    A college education should lead the way out of poverty in stead of the way in. The problem is that this girl needed a college education before she could figure that out!

    I love the way the commies try to co-opt the bank employees by letting them out of the “circle of guilt.” Commie scum, yes, but magnanimous commie scum.

      Yes, but only when accompanied by the proper hand gestures. You see, in revolutionary parlance, “exoticism” is a “visual utterance…”

      And after she takes up the cost of her education to her college,she can go directly to obama and yell at him for intentionally collapsing the businesses via hundreds of oppressive leftists regulation so businesses can’t afford to hire.

    Her tuition likely included the education of an illegal immigrant and someone with far less qualifications than she had. The costs of “protected” class “scholarships” and in-state tuition for illegals is built into the full tuition that regular folk have to pay.

      So in other words, the schools are socialized in that they spread the wealth around, but she doesn’t like socialism, but she wants to force the whole country to be socialist. Ok. I got it now ;-)

    • KenInMontana

      Her student loans are the problem, it is a partnership between the Universities and Sallie Mae. It has nothing to do with illegal aliens, these schools jack their tuition up and get a kickback from the additional interest from the Sallie Mae loans. If one defaults it gets sent to Sallie Mae’s own collections firm (it is run under a different company name to appear as a third party agency) and the University gets yet another kickback from the penalties and additional collection fees. Pretty slick eh?

    And who doesn’t want the free and lower cost public education and instead wants the most expensive prestigious institute to teach them for free? And oh yes, the professors need to work for nothing.

      These socialist and communist professors understand that with “free tuition” that their paycheck is going to go down and the quality of the facilities is going to drop right?? If we can’t pay for anything already and these people want free college why is the gov’t going to pay insane amounts of money when they can higher someone else who will do the job for less.

    The problem is somewhat the tuition, but more important the degree you pay for. If I get a degree in history, which costs me over a hundred thousand dollars, but will only net me 30K annually, I should expect that I paid too much for an education that won’t benefit me financially. Also, history degrees, business degrees, education degrees, etc. are sought after because they are simple to get. If you want to get money for your education, you either have to be the best in the field of degrees that were easily got, or get a degree in medicine, chemistry, etc, because these degrees weed out the morons quick, and have the most financial return for your tuition. Just my two cents, but you can take that advice to the bank and cash it.

      Exactly stevenbiot. My son graduated engineering school last year at the height of the recession and had no problem getting a good paying job as a mechanical engineer. I was just telling one of my liberal friends the other day, who OF COURSE sides with these protestors, that if you choose to get a college degree in history or South American Studies or some other useless degree, that’s great, but the world does not OWE YOU A JOB because you majored in something you enjoy. There’s a reason why engineers and physical therapists and computer programmers find jobs after graduating and history and english majors don’t.

        Yep! I picked med school for that exact reason. I love to help people and all that jazz; but my family doesn’t eat if I don’t earn. I would have loved to take the easy way out and get a mindless degree, but there is cash in the medical and engineering fields. This is plain common sense, Rosie. You should be proud that you didn’t raise a moron, as was my mother when she saw my acceptance letter a few years back. Her dying words to me were, ” Obama is an asshole, Steven.” I kid you not.

    What makes this and other protesters so special and entitled?

    I don’t get it. I am still paying back my student loan and it is a hardship. So what makes this and other crazy protesters think they are so much better than me and others paying back student loans? Why should the banks forgive their loans? What makes these protesters better than me and others paying back student loans?

    Did the bank twist this woman’s arm and make her go to college?

    To the dumb protester.
    Buck up, graduate, if you don’t like your lot in life (you can’t get a job) take it directly to the source of the problems in America, take it to obama. And in the interim, do whatever you can to legally make money. I bet the soros organizations are only paying you $350-$500 a week to protest…and that is not enough to pay rent in NYC.

    $100,000 for the college yikes! I think Citibank et al should interview these yoyo’s one by one and be able to reject there there loans in the first place based on attitude alone. You can read Rules for Radicals for free at the library and I haven’t met a radical marxist who wouldn’t be thrilled to indoctrinate you at nausium about it for free (unless he/she is a professor of course).

  • Anonymous

    These kids were forced to take on these obligations ? By who ? They must never have learned simple math at all, so should have not qualified for a loan at all. Just because someone offers you something, doesn’t mean that you should take it. Something that should have been learned at their parents knee. Grow up you whiners.

  • Anonymous

    I gotta say that these communist occupy protest movement are learning from congress. They essentially tell the taxpayer give me your credit card with an unlimited spending limit and you get the bill every month. The college loan issue is substantially the same thing. I wanna borrow and spend tons of $$$$$$$ on college and don’t dare send me the bill afterwards.

    Same message, just different words.

    If you wanted to go to college before you could afford it, do take out student loans, get financial aid, unemployment, food stamps, and welfare :)

    The cowardly protesters have disabled comments for the video on YouTube. It just shows that they know they are out of line.

    Ultimately they are after free college education and they want it done retroactively to wipe out their loans. Sorry but its not going to happy. Frankly the best way for them to pay off their loans is to sue the college they attended for fraud because after 4 years and $100K+ they are still morons.

    Open letter to all America.
    From the Supreme Leader of North Korea. Kim Jong-il

    It have been rumor that you Americans want to send those who Occupy Wal-Mart to My great country to show what a Great Country under Communists look like.
    Are you out of your mind, you keep those dead things in your country. They would contaminate our drinking water; they stink of piss and are as lazy as my second born child. They would be bad influence on my people who are very hard worker. If you try to send them to here I will reverse the charge and sent back to you. We do not want any losers here; I have been informed it is Wall Street not Wal-Mart???What is difference?
    Therefore, I, Kim Jong-il say our Great Country will not take your loser children from you.
    Some say this is a plot to destroy my Country by sending your waste here like my friend Fidel Castro did in the 1970s …do I look that Dumb. So do not sent them to My Great Country. You keep them there…AND I MEAN IT….I HAVE NUKES ….

    Sincerely

    After four years she’s in debt up to her eyeballs instead she could have earned a decent living at doing something she’s pver qualified for, flipp’n burgers or making the next pot of coffee. I guess what I’m saying you better know what your aiming for before you pull the trigger on a 100k loan. Was it a broad liberal arts degree in some BS studies program, could have recieved that from viewing tv. Did she just attend college thinking that a degree in anything made her entitled to a job? Did she work extra hard to rise to the top of her class so she’d get noticed by future employers?

    This is a terrific lesson to all who are contemplating college….pick a major with a future and persue it with all your heart otherwise enter the workforce after HS to start on a meaningless job as someone’s secretary, hostess, store clerk or whatever puts food on the table. Putting yourself in a huge hole for a dead end stagnant or declining field is a loser.

    Why is her complaint with the bank?? Did the bank charge her to go to college or did the university charge her?? Perhaps, as was said below, she should take up her issues with the university and it’s prices for an education as opposed to the bank who gave her the money for college and crazily expected her to pay it back.

  • mradam

    How can they blame a bank who helped them out with a loan they themselves wanted? Obviously they got ripped off by public edu and college edu because they have no concept of cause and effect. They should protest at the colleges for charging so much for their services but all the banks did was help them out. OWS though is not known for logical thinking on any subject.

    I have a son i collage and he will have the same debt. He chose to do so and is responsible for it. I don’t think he will blame the bank, but he will lay partial blame on the so called goverment for the people. The girl refered to and the others in this vid. are among the childeren of our police, natl. guard, and armed forces. So when the time comes that you righty’s have eliminated the middle class, they’re fathers won’t be there to protect you behind your gated fence’s. The time will come in your lifetime that we the middle class will have had enough of the” catter to the rich” policy’s of our current govt. And i will be one of the one’s at your door. Please don’t beg forgivness for you and your family at that time, maybe take a real look at history and the comming consequences for you all.
