New App to Get Legal Consent for Sex

Sadly (and necessarily) it's come to this.

Now imagine if all you boys forced women to sign/use this app every time they wished to makey with the bam bam.  It MIGHT get annoying (and unromantic) enough that there might be some backlash to this insanity....oh who am I kidding.

Enjoy the decline.

What College's Fear Most - Corporate Training Programs


It was before my time, but like "nickelodeons," "World War I," and "dinosaurs I was reliably informed about an equally extinct phenomenon from America's days' past.

"Corporate training programs."

You see, apparently, waaaaaay back in the day, corporations and employers would hire you, often times fresh out of high school, mayhaps even before and then, and...

(GET THIS

No, really you have to sit down.

No, honestly, this is going to floor you!!! )

then they'd TRAIN YOU in the job you were hired to do!

I know!  Who knew!  Those crazy old people with their antiquated ways and walking uphill both ways to school!

Anyway, apparently what ended up happening was about the time the baby boomers took over corporate America they realized that instead of training people for specific tasks, they would instead simply require you have more education in a field that was at best tangentially related to the specific duties that would be required of the job.  So if they needed a credit analyst they would require somebody have a degree in finance.  If they needed some one to manage a fish store, they'd require a business degree.  And if they needed a computer system administrator, they'd require a degree in computer engineering.

Now, you might be asking, "Captain, well those degrees are pretty general and not specific enough to help do any one particular job.  Even if I had a business degree, I would still need to learn a little bit about fish and their fish like ways.  Wouldn't these new baby boomer bosses, you know, still have to train you in a little bit?"

And you would think so Younger Generation American.  But you see, the baby boomers had two solutions to that problem!

"Steep learning curve."

And

"I don't have time to hold your hand!"

And thus with those two mere phrases, combined with requiring you spend 4 years earning a degree, they completely outsourced all their training expenses, ne'er having to spend another cent training their actual employees.

Of course, employee loyalty tanked.  You had to start employing the other half to make ends meet in an American family budget.  Not to mention every Gen X'er and Millennial want to kill pretty much ALL baby boomer bosses, but you see what REALLY mattered was that baby boomer bosses didn't have to actually, you know, like "manage" their employees and could just sit in meetings all day kissing ass for promotion.

This lasted for about 40 years and certainly is still heavily practiced today (as most baby boomers didn't adequately save for retirement and have to work well past 70 asking us younger people how to use Excel as we pay for their social security).  But some interesting things happened over those 40 years.

First an educational arms race occurred where an increasing percent of the population was required to get an increasing (and unnecessary) amount of education for entry level positions.  And so whereas a job in 1950 required a high school diploma, that same job required an associates in 1980, a bachelors in 1990, and a masters in 2010.  This manifested itself in the "Masters Preferred" phrase that was typically used in conjunction with "Steep learning curve" and "I don't know how to use Excel."  Never mind a young man or woman was now required to spend an extra 6 years in school and $125,000 on post-high school education, it was more important the future generations cripple themselves financially so baby boomer bosses didn't have to pay for training or get their hands dirty actually managing.

Second, there was something happening at the actual schools.  Since there was an educational arms race occurring, demand for degrees shot up.  Baby boomers, always deathly afraid of Excel, found this a win win.  Not only would they require younger generations get completely unnecessary degrees, but they would also be the professors who would teach (and also charge $250 per credit) for those degrees.  This worked for a while until two variables became so critical it actually destroyed the value of degrees, no matter how much the baby boomer bosses demanded them in the real world.

1.  The cost of tuition got too high (both in terms of time and money).
2.  The quality of the students graduating with masters degrees were of poor quality, unable to meet the demands of the real world.

Enter the internet.

By all accounts and measures colleges should have been replaced long ago with online certifications by the government where you could simply test for your "finance degree" or "HR degree" much like IT and computer professionals test for their certifications.  It would have saved Gen X and Millennials trillions, but remember, baby boomers who have nightmares about Excel and inadequate retirement savings need to keep this obsolete facade up so they may parasite off of their beloved future.  But no matter how much they controlled the economy, no matter how much they lied to their children, inevitably newer industries led by smarter people would come along, obsolete them, usurp their power, and implement a more efficient and moral way to train in the younger generations.

And thus we have come full circle where increasing number of companies are offering...

(get ready for it!!!!!)

TRAINING PROGRAMS!!!

Sprouts and saplings of training programs have existed more or less for the past 15 years.  More Millennials and certainly Gen Z'ers learn MUCH MORE from YouTube than they did all their teachers, parents, and professors combined in 17 years of schooling.  Online and free colleges, or at least educational opportunities are forming in the form of EdX, Coursera, and bootcamps.  And even accredited online colleges exist now that charge 1/3rd the price of tuition for an increasing number of degrees (not to mention, void of parking fees, commuting, waking up at 8AM, and $400 textbooks!) The internet has made training so cheap, and the baby boomers made traditional education such an absolute EXPENSIVE and psycho-sh!tshow, sanity is once again prevailing in the labor market and corporations are bringing back training.

I know this ancient and outdated phenomenon - like the nuclear family, 4.25% average GDP growth, masculine men, feminine women, and all things from the 1950's - is evil.  And I know that Millennials and Gen Z'ers view "the college experience" more of a birthrighted party, which if taken away would be about the worst thing that could happen in your ignorant unwise eyes. But if we were to be logical about this, think it through, and ACTUALLY CARE ABOUT FUTURE GENERATIONS, we could do away with forcing every young person to waste 6 years of their youth and $150,000 in unnecessary expenses if we just fully embraced online education and brought back the "corporate training program."

The Man Who Escaped Seattle

Given Seattle's recent leftist insanity of instituting a soda tax and trying to install a municipal income tax (which is against the Washington State constitution), normal, self respecting people who like freedom and hate taxes will want to flee from it.

One man did where he escaped up into the Cascade mountains, bought an old shack, has converted it into his bachelor home, replete with refurbished wood burning stove, and now works remotely while also writing books and hiking.  He also started podcasting and whereas I normally wait till podcasters are a bit more seasoned before linking to them, his episode on escaping Seattle is definitely worth a listen. 

It will also has to serve as a substitute for my podcasting this week as I've been migrating from Vegas to Phoenix and got sick for the past two days, doing barely anything but the bare necessities.  Hopefully, I will be back in full force this weekend with a regular level of production.

Why Herman Cain Should've Been President

I delve into the true role racist politics should play in American government.  Republicans are at least noble and honest while the democrat party painfully made it clear they are a party of tyrants and not democracy when they screwed Bernie Sanders out of his rightful place in the primary.

Still, all that doesn't matter. Herman Cain should've been president, and if he was, it would have been a true testament to the fact minorities can indeed advance America foward.

Leftists Will Scare Away Rightists

But when all the rightists are gone, who will they parasite off of then?

Oh, wait, that's right. Themselves.

Canadian Bloggers: 25% Off!

Just a friendly reminder.  While the US economy grows (somewhat) under Trump and his policies seem to have somewhat of a positive effect on the economy (though still yet TBD), Canada is stuck with the world's biggest and softest trust fund baby who's never worked a day in his life and wants to use Canadian's money to make foreigners and parasites love him in a popularity contest!  This (along with a drop in oil prices) has made the Canadian dollar drop about a quarter from the US dollar.

Which means it's never been cheaper to donate to Canadian bloggers you love and adore.

May I recommend two of them?

Kate at Small Dead Animals.
Stefan Molyneux at Freedomain Radio.

I know you beta boyos are too busy donating your money to cute conservathots that say obvious shit, but if you could perhaps donate money, AND AT CHEAP RATES, to our real Canadian friends to help advance freedom and philosophy?

Will Trump's EEOC Go After Google?

I know it's a personal law suit, but if this susses out to be true, the EEOC might have grounds to go after Google.

When Feminism Jumped the Shark

Feminism is just a laughing stock.  A sad, pathetic laughing stock now, completely removed from reality.

Why I Can't Take Feminism Seriously

When you bend over backwards and reach so far as to make cryptocurrency "sexist"

AND

you get published in a major government news outlet because you are just so oppressed

you'll forgive me if me and the rest of the world just laugh at feminism and feminists and accurately ID you for the pathetic, sad whiny entitled children you are.

How Western Governors University Will End the Insanity at American Colleges...Sort Of



A long time ago a fan of mine put me onto WGU or "Western Governors University."  It is an online college that charges less than half the national average in tuition, it's accredited, it allows you to study from the comforts of your own home (or anywhere, really), you don't have to commute, pay for parking, walk in the cold, get falsely accused of rape, attend marxist indoctrination seminars on "diversity" or "privilege," take worthless pre-requisite classes, or pay idiotic "student service fees."   It (along with ASU online) is one of the first accredited colleges to do one simple thing that:

banks
brokerages
music
movies
energy companies
retailers

and nearly every other sector of the economy has managed to do these past 20 years.

Offer their service online.

Of course, colleges have absolutely no incentive to go online even though their product (education) is ideally suited (i.e. - a service, not a physical tangible product) to be sold over the internet.  Because if they did start offering accredited degrees over the internet, nearly everyone in higher education would lose their jobs and have to go find real ones in the real world instead of teaching.

One excellent professor can deliver a superior seminar or lecture to millions of students over the internet for a fraction of the cost it would take thousands of inferior in-classroom professors to do so.

You certainly don't need student centers, dorms, sports arenas, safe spaces, classrooms or any other physical buildings, let alone the land or infrastructure required for a college campus.  Just some servers and IT staff.

And all those college administrators, professors, diversity counselors, diversity directors, directors of inclusion, dorm managers, coaching staffs, student aid officers, janitors, counselors, and consultants?  Gone.  Again replaced with...well...some servers and IT staff.

If you think about it, the cost of college tuition should be approaching zero.  It's just so few colleges dare to offer accredited degrees online that what few entrants there are can still charge a pretty penny (though half the cost...and 1/100th the hassle and brainwashing...of that of physical schools).

According to economics this less costly, less painful, and ultimately superior product should cause a mass exodus from America's traditional colleges and universities and into the new online ones.  This exodus I believe would also be doubly encouraged by the never-ending price increases in physical colleges' tuition and the fact the upcoming generation of college students (Gen Y) have spent their entire lives online.  And though we won't know for sure until it happens, it's almost as obvious that today's physical colleges are as outdated and obsolete as the horse and buggy, the typewriter, newspapers, and ESPN.

There's just one problem.

Tell today's college bound kids that.

The truth is we...well...don't tell the youth the truth.  We lie to them.  Every day we tell them they "have to go to college."  That the "key to success is college."  By god, if you don't go to college you'll end up poor, alone, and (GASP!) not as successful as your peers!  And you don't want that do you?

But there is something else much more fundamental going that adults, parents, and people-you-shouldn't-trust-because-they're-over-30 don't understand.  And that is we have created such a hopeless, prison-like environment in the K-12 education system that these kids literally have NOTHING ELSE in life to look forward to than college.  We don't teach them about the trades.  We don't teach them about potentially joining the military.  We don't teach them about homeownership, repair, housekeeping, having kids or the American dream.  And I don't know one family that sits their kids down and tries to teach them about the importance of love, friends, family, and their future, giving them a kernel of hope there's something better for them in life than "just more school."  This myopic focus on college ensures that young people today view college more like a young lady views her wedding day than they do an incredibly expensive and important financial investment in their future.  And thus a fair amount of college-bound kids do not view college as an education, but a birthright entitlement called "The College Experience."

This will cause a split between America's college-bound.

Serious kids who want to invest in a real education that will increase their lifetime earnings.

and

Defeated kids who, lacking real guidance and upbringing from their parents and teachers, just want to escape to The Promised Land of Canaan College for the "college experience."

And this is how the insanity at America's colleges will end...more or less.

With physical colleges being unable to compete for the real college students, their attendances will drop, their revenues drop, and the quality and caliber of their students will drop.  Again, this won't happen over night (and online colleges will have to start offering more STEM and engineering degrees if they wish to accelerate this process), but it is already happening.  Tuition is getting so expensive it's forcing kids to look for cheaper alternatives, plus the internet is exposing higher education for the racket it is, not to mention breaking the information monopoly the old "Baby Boomer Era" of professors, teachers, and deans held in analog days over their students.  The worthlessness of many college degrees is becoming apparent and alternatives to attending the "big university" are becoming increasingly well-known to college-age youth.

But this exodus will not only leave traditional, physical college with less money, but it will also leave them with the poorer-quality students.  The mere "dreamers."  The "college experience" students.  The pot-smokers.  Those who don't take their studies seriously and largely major in worthless subjects to post-pone adulthood for another 4-8 years, perhaps their entire lives by becoming professors themselves.  This will not only result in physical colleges becoming more hostile towards serious students (protests, made up student fees, forcing people to attend "sensitivity training, accusing people of privilege, etc.) and thus further driving them into the arms of online colleges, but it will highlight to the world just what a mentally insane (and ultimately worthless) environment physical colleges have become.  Combine this with the internet, and the DAILY insanity is hilariously/tragically chronicled for all the world to see.

What's worse for physical colleges, however, is while all the world will witness their mental and childish behavior, they are so inoculated in their precious world of academia they're completely unaware how they're driving students away.  And thus, they will not only continue this insane, even hate filled behavior, but turn it up to 11...then 12, then 13, then 50, inevitably deterring even the most brainwashed of students because it will have turned into nothing but a radical, hate-filled cult of leftist, mentally damaged inferiors.  Alas, slowly, but surely, physical colleges will no longer be bastions of true diverse and independent thought, with 10's of thousands of students, but poorly-attended liberal arts colleges that the world will make fun of...and never hire from.

In the end we will never get rid of the allure of "The College Experience."  There will always be mis-informed kids who were so ill-raised they will have nothing else "but" in their lives.  But with the power of the internet, both in terms of the nearly-free education it can deliver and its ability to expose just what a toxic and worthless institution American higher education has become, we can maybe start saving generations of youth from making the crippling mistake of paying for overpriced worthless degrees instead of feeding them to the meatgrinder of Big Education.
