Sugar Babies: More and More College Students Are Literally Becoming Whores to Cover Rising Tuition Costs

While some call prostitution the oldest profession, its getting a high tech, modern boost due to rising college tuition costs (no street corners involved). More students these days are turning to so-called “sugar baby/sugar daddy” websites to get hooked up with older, rich “generous sponsors” to “help” them graduate college debt-free. One of the largest Sugar Daddy/Baby sites, Seeking Arrangement, tagline: “Where beautiful, successful people fuel mutually beneficial relationships,” claims that more than one million college students have joined “for their Sugar Baby Scholarship”. (Ew. I mean, come on, are they just trying to sound lecherous?) In an interview with Sky News, Brandon Wade, the founder of SeekingArrangement.com denied it was an escort site but that it enabled “sugar babies” to “upgrade their lifestyle”. He said sex was never expected, but it is aspired to and that the website had led to countless marriages worldwide. “You want to find […] Read More

Student Loans Are Becoming The Most Crippling Debt In America

It’s one of the key facets of the American Dream: if you want to have a great house, beautiful spouse, and that head-turning Mercedes, then you need to get a good education. For many, an education does just that, as it provides them with the training they need to get into the field they are passionate about, to pursue the career that helps them achieve this “ideal” reality. However, there seems to be a much darker side to post-secondary education that is strengthening its grip on the necks of well-intentioned Americans. This dark side is student debt. According to the Federal Reserve, student loan debt is now nearly $1.2 trillion in the United States alone.(1) A 2012 study revealed that the average cost to attend an American post-secondary institution [tuition, room and board] ranges from approximately $14,300 to $37,800 per year.(2) With the cost of education so high, it’s no […] Read More

Florida Cop Breaks 14-Year-Old Girl’s Arm During Warrantless Cell Phone Search

The Supreme Court ruled earlier this year that police must have a warrant to search cell phones and other personal electronic devices. Florida parents are calling for a Greenacres Police Department officer to be fired after he reportedly broke their 14-year-old daughter’s arm while attempting a warrantless search of her cell phone. According to an arrest report published by the Broward-Palm Beach New Times this week, Officer Jared Nash explained that he approached the 14-year-old girl at John I. Leonard High School on Oct. 21 because he believed that she had video of a fight on her cell phone. Nash described the girl, who was talking on the cell phone, as “uncooperative.” He said that she pushed him back as she tried to get past him to walk away. “When she did this I took a hold of her left arm,” he wrote, adding that he gave her a […] Read More

2004: The Horrors of Public Education

“School sucks.” Most students will agree, and many have voiced their disgust concerning this abomination we call public education. They spite the good students who obey like little sheep, frown at imposed conformity, and laugh at the hypocritical nature of the system. The same will be done here, but there is a big difference between these defiant students and me, the author. I was one of those good little sheep. I graduated high school with a 4.0, perfect attendance record, two years of student council under my belt, and a host of top scholarships to get me through college. Teachers loved me, students both feared and respected me, and the principal knew me better than I knew him. It’s enough to make you sick. I know it made me sick. So here I am, biting the hand that feeds because it’s been feeding nothing but propaganda and sour grapes. […] Read More
