Tater Totter: CNN's In-House Flack Brian Cryface Stelter Has Lost Forty-Two Percent of Xis Audience This Year

If ratings were bodyfat, and Tater lost 40% of his bodyfat, he'd still be really fat.

But ratings aren't Tater's bodyfat. This is a big drop. And this Egg With Legs didn't start with high ratings.



YASSSS!

There's still a lot of reach in old media. Not everyone gets news/info exclusively from the internet or social media. I'd say the majority don't. Radio and TV are still a thing. CNN's airport niche though...not so much.

Seriously, CNN used to drive discussion back in the day, but that day was thirty years ago. No one pays CNN much mind anymore.

No student loans are restrictive.

The government gives the school whatever you request to take out the school refunds you whatever the difference is.

I used student loans to pay for everything including rent food and beer.

I also knew I had to pay the money back so I was mindful of how much I spent.

Lots of my friends were less mindful.

Frankly if we have to have federal student loans the only way I see it even being somewhat workable is if colleges have some financial teeth in the game.

Because as it is they dont have any downward pressure on tuition nor do they have any incentive to ensure kids make wise financial and education choices while at college.

Lots of my friends were less mindful.

I was stunned when a kid I went to college with IN THE MID-80s told me he bought his car and an amazing stereo sound system, among other things, with his student loan money.

I was really poor and first thing I did was pay off my loans when I got out -- and can't imagine using any of that money on personal expenses.

Looks like the tuition and fees alone for OU pharmacy school come to $186,252 for the four years.

Then there are books, probably $2,000/semester easily for a specialized area like pharmacy -- add another $8,000 for that.
That comes to $194,252, but does not include room, board, transportation, insurance, and that's just counting pharmacy school. I would bet the person probably has loans for undergrad as well that are included in that $300,000 figure.

Well herein lies the problem. Banks only made student loans because they were backed by government (and have been for decades.)

To get a non backed loan you needed a co signer. Which means kids who have poor parents and/or parents with shitty credit could not get loans.

The real root of all of this is frankly how stupidly expensive college is.

I don't think professional schools generally have the kind of TA/RA jobs for grad students that you find in regular academia. There aren't any freshman pharmacy classes that need papers graded, or 100-level gen ed pharmacy classes that can be taught by a grad student.

397 I don't blame current college age students for being pissed - the system we've allowed to develop is a huge ripoff. Sadly, the best answer for most of them (which almost no one will tell them) is that College today is a colossal waste of time and money, and you would be far better off giving up that fantasy of a "professional" job and instead learning something honest like plumbing, wiring, or car repair.

These 18 and 19 year-olds are making foolish decision, BUT they've got the entire education establishment whispering in their ears saying "oh come on you can borrow the money! You'll earn enough to pay it back, you have our word on that! DOOO EEEEETTTT!!"

406 Sheesh. Now the textbooks are $100 a pop, and usually written by the professor who's teaching the class. And you're required to have the most recent edition which, surprise surprise, gets released every year without fail.
Posted by: Insomniac at July 16, 2019 01:00 PM (NWiLs)

Maybe averaging $100 if you can get away with buying used.

My Con Law book was almost $300. I'd say the average price of my law school books was in the mid-$200's for the ones I had to buy new.

About the same in my masters program.

Undergrad was a decade ago, but even back then, I think the books averaged between $150-$200 new.

It's RIDICULOUS.

and the new edition scam is ... I mean, it's very close to fraud.

407 I graduated debt free. It was no picnic.


I was a drafter and designer 20-25 hours a week during college. and 50-60 during any vaco time. I was good and fast and made decent money, particularly for an 18-22 year old kid. I never took any real time off much less a vacation. I studied hard and got out in 4 years not the standard 5 years to get out with a BSME. I ate lots of Raman and had an understanding girlfriend that didn't demand we go out much.

I had several offers and took the one at the company I had been drafting and designing with. No off time from graduating.

Best advice I got when out of college is a guy said live like you are still in college. I didn't quite do that but was not anywhere living up to my income. Bought my first house within 3 years of graduating on my own.

Turns out sacrifice, hard work, and long hours go pretty far. Something I do not see in the kids of today.

417 I had to go to a meeting but a topic in the last thread:

2024 Republican candidate - Ron DeSantis.

Generally the pick is from governors. This has been busted up a bit of late but I predict a return to the norm.

If you take a look at the Republican governors on display at rga.org there are onyl a few that will pass the "reasonably telegenic enough to be on national TV" test. Sorry, its a factor.

Ron DeSantis is also the only one with marginally national name recognition (the MFM shot themselves in the foot making his impending doom a news story).

He's Trumpy and he's a fighter and he's the governor of a must win state.

DeSantis.

I have been an auto mechanic for 44 years. With the exception of some specialized dealer only tools I've had to supply my own tools, plus storage.
And at the end of every day, walk away from them, leaving my livelihood under vestigial security.

My insurance agent recommended they be covered under homeowner's in a detached location (the shop I worked in) and would require a current inventory of every single item.

At the time of retirement, the replacement value of those tools at current prices was just north of 96k.
And I walked away from that investment each day.

I'm not sure that makes any net difference, though. If Walgreen's gives a grant to a pharmacy student, that money comes out of the money paid by consumers for their prescriptions. Walgreen's isn't a charity, yes?

The fundamental problem, as several people have noted, is (mainly, though not excusively, due to administrative bloat) pharmacy school now costs nearly $200,000 just for tuition and fees.
That money has to come from somewhere, whether directly from the consumer in the form of higher prescription costs, or indirectly from the consumer by means of taxes that get funneled to the institution in the form of student loans.

Right. The books have a useful life of 2 or 3 years before the new edition comes out, so the resale prices are very very low. A $300 book that you bought the new the near edition came out might fetch $100 at the end of the year. Because the rental / resale companies have to hedge hard that a new edition might come out that summer and they have a bunch of worthless inventory.

Because once the new edition comes out, the old edition sells for like $20. (which was my trick -- I said fuck it and bought old editions for my upper level law classes, and most of my professors were cool enough to give me an old syllabus with the page numbers that corresponded to the old book. Because it's not like the new editions have substantially different content then the old ones. They just move the pages around.)

But the administration -- jesus fucking christ are those people wildly overpaid and there are way too many of them. My law school had substantially more administrators than professors, and I have no idea what any of them did on a daily basis.

Yep. And they push true, but misleading statistics about how much more money you'll make with a college degree.

Like, yes, people with college degrees tend to make more, overall, then the rest of the population. But there's two HUGE factors at play:

1) you're counting MD's, JD's, and jobs that require a lot more education, and while they pay a lot, most people in those jobs are so fucking buried in loans its ridiculous
and
2) you're counting a lot of idiots working at McDonalds.

And most people aren't going to end up at McDonalds or with an MD, so the outliers really do shift the numbers in a way that's pretty misleading.

A guy with an undergrad degree working in a cubicle is not necessarily making more than a guy working as a plumber. And that's the real comparison that should be made.

MDs complaining about their student loans are a bunch of idiots. $100,000 or $200,000 in loans and they are making a few hundred thousand a year ... cry me a fucking river. You'd have to be a retard for a medical school loan to put any appreciable pressure on your earnings.

Of course, this is the problem - medical school has gotten to be such a lucrative business for the schools that they have been trolling the retard class for students (and to help with all their diversity, title IX, awoken bullshit).

The difference is drug reps are no longer able to give us free pens as the government bureaucrats think docs will prescribe the wrong medications just to get the pens and refrigerator magnets. Universities need a comeuppance.

I think the lower cost of diagnosis tools is fantastic, when I saw the advent of computer control systems, diagnosis tools were non existent.

The bulk of repair work in today's market is diagnosing. Thus paying attention and learning HOW to follow the charts is paramount.

It's common and easy for people to forget that for every lawyer doing something shady and manipulative, there's another lawyer on the other side trying to stop him from doing it.

and the worst thing of all is that Lawyers are generally always doing what their clients are telling them to do, especially the worst things. People get mad at lawyers because what many of them do exposes what we as a people are.

What Bill Clinton showed, even as everyone around him thought that he HAD to resign, was that if you just ignore the shame and power through seemingly oblivious ... people tend to lose their "anger momentum" and most others just forget.

Barky took this tactic to the next level with his total abuse of our system in shoving BarkyCare through, even after it had been killed, dead, 5 times and everyone around him - all the AMericans, at least - were convinced that it was done, just as Bill and SHrillary's asinine health care industry takeover had been done, before. But no. Barky had no AMerican sensibilities about him to stop him from saying, "Fuck it. FUck this system. FUck America. Either my national socialized health care passes or I break the system in the process. I'm happy either way." ANd he did. ANd people forgot a lot about it as he was committing new un-Constitutional acts and America-hating crimes every week.

I wonder if you've been in any of the countries Texas Dan is referring to. Take anything south of the US Border in this hemisphere, for example. Sure, you can buy property down there, and live there, and you can own it until some low level official has a friend who wants it, and then fuck you, suddenly you don't own it and you had better get out of the country if you want to stay alive.

That's what "civil law" is like in much of the world.

Remember they guy last year who moved to the Acapulco area because US drug laws were oppressive and he wanted to live where he could be Free from Government Oppression? Well he was doing great for about a year until suddenly 2 cartel guys showed up at his doorstep with M-16's and that was that. And I don't think anyone even investigated it, the police weren't going to mess with that. Oh, so THAT's the downside of a country with an ineffective legal system, his ghost must be thinking.

I always had questions about this. Living in the Detroit area there are lots of blue and white collared people. As a rule, the blue collar (factory) workers make lots more money than the white collar people, but the lifestyles are different. Blue collars have boats, snowmobiles, etc. white collar people have cottages they enjoy for maybe a few weeks a year. Hard to say who is happiest or right, but it is safe to say white collar workers know more about being better at managing their money.
