Students, get off your asses

Yes, students, I know you would much rather sit around smoking pot all day pondering the meaning of life. I'm sure many of us wish we had that luxury. In an ideal world, everything would be free, and nobody would have to work, and we'd all get along and also, there would be world peace.

Snap out of it, people. If you want to get anywhere in life, you're going to have to WORK for a living. You think that free university education is a right? Well guess what? Article 26 of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights seems to indicate that free elementary education is a right. As it stands today, close to 100 million children have yet to exercise that right - and what have you done about that? Most of you have done nothing, as you're too busy drinking beer and whining about having to pay for your privilege to attend university.

Oh, or for those of you in France who already enjoy free universtiy education, my favourite complaint about imposing fees: "Your students have to work while at university to pay their way. We don't want to end up like you in Britain or America" (more on that here). Awwww.... you know what I have to say to that? Boo-fucking-hoo you bunch of babies. You know what? I don't want to work either. In fact, I never want to work work a day in my life, but still make millions. And I want to eat champagne and foie gras every night for dinner and never get gout. Is that going to happen? NO. Same goes to you, you lazy assholes. Maybe that's why France is in such an economic shambles - nobody wants to work for a living.

And as for you, Quebec students, is that what you aspire to? If so, congratulations, cause with a bloated public sector and an annual fiscal debt (yes, Quebec, you are a debtor province - do you understand what that means if you separate from the federal government?), Quebec is well on its way. And so what is it exactly that you hope to accomplish by abolishing the pittance that we pay in tuition today? Even fewer qualified professors to teach us, because we don't have the money to offer them decent salaries? Or was it further diminshed student services and equipment you were after? Hmm? One thing is for certain, Quebec used to be known for housing some of the country's best universities at a cheap price. Pretty soon all they'll be known for is being cheap. And all this because you bums don't want to get off your asses and work a few hours a week to support yourselves. I suppose the interest-free student loans don't interest you either, since you probably won't feel like working to pay them off after you graduate. And for those of you who complain about not being able to get jobs after graduating, maybe that's because employers look for people who take a little initiative and work toward their own future instead of expecting it all to be delivered into their doughey, lazy lap.

That is all. Back to studying for exams.
