"After we put in all those hours and put ourselves at risk as activists, we had [Cohen], who had not been in the van, come in and critique us," Read says. "To a person, I think we all feel kind of betrayed and disappointed."

yeah - put yourself at risk in every way except financial. the man was paying for it, there's no betrayal there - he did what he said he would do. YOU guys changed the plan after the fact. If i was giving money for AIDS research in Africa and found out they were funneling money into another cause (even a worthwhile one) i'd be a little pissy too and reserve the right to stop donating. how is this different?

but let this be a lesson to you - when someone else is paying for you, they tend to feel entitled to tell you how to use their money. i wonder if there's some sort of lesson that could be taken from that hard-learned fact.

"He didn't want to have to bother with the messy part of being in a democracy, MAN!" Mark Read, the activist who claims to have initially proposed The Illuminator idea, tells DNAInfo.com.

"He's a 1 percenter, MAN!" Read, 46, adds to the website, "telling the 99 percent, 'I'm your boss, MAN!'"

jabelar: This is actually a problem with our limited number of political "parties" here in the US -- that each party has a collection of values and it is unlikely you agree with the whole bundle.


In short ... I can't decide which group of assholes I want to give my vote to.

The My Little Pony Killer: Virgil_Lee_Nobody: wow, wow, WHOA. What is with all the HATE on OWS? What the hell has happened to FARK?

I'm not hating OWS in general, I am hating the jackasses from TFA who were given a vehicle to use for OWS-related matters and decided to stamp their little feet and demand that they be able to use it for pet projects. That's not how the contract works.


This. I totally agree with the original purpose of OWS: fixing what's wrong with our financial sector, calling attention to the growing problems of wealth inequality and corporate money buying our government. This van was loaned in good faith to promote those issues, and by co-opting a gift to promote their own issues which are completely unrelated to the reason the van was loaned in the first place. In other words, they totally looked that gift horse in the mouth.

The vast majority of Occupy people are not this lame, but it's farkwits like Mark Read who hijack and dilute the message, and unwittingly do the work of the corporatists, by pissing off a lot of good people who wanted to help. The movement has a purpose. It's not all about YOU and the flavor of the day. Anyone can take on other social issues in their spare time, but If you're no longer interested in the original purpose of OWS, then you are free to leave, and start your own movement.

lordargent: skullkrushe: "He's a 1 percenter," Read, 46, adds to the website, "telling the 99 percent, 'I'm your boss.'"

He also started his company from scratch. Actually, the first time around, they started with $12,000 and closed shop a couple of months later.

I mean, isn't that the dream, to start a company from practically nothing and grow it into a multi million dollar company?

hovsm: Why do they keep saying they are the 99% when only about 1% of the 99% actually are a part of the demonstrations?

As a former member of the 80% who is now a part of the 15% I ask, WTF are those dudes problems?


Correction, he didn't build that.

ha-ha-guy: And this is why OWS keeps stumbling. Because they can't stay on the broad appeal message of the income gap and the erosion of the middle class, instead it becomes a mob shooting the political message du jour.


Pretty much the same reason the Tea Party stumbled. If they had stuck to their core message of "taxes and government spending are too high", they'd have more support from the moderates. Instead, they allowed themselves to be taken over by the fundies and they have become the "new right wing with extra strength derp"

I'll take your word for it if you insist, but it's the lame-ass ones who are getting most of the publicity. And who are responsible for #Occupy's degenerating from a theoretically good idea (calling attention to wealth disparity into the US) into a joke.

EyeballKid: ...who honestly thinks that the pricing for college tuition is done by any sort of ethical, or even rational, process?


Given that we live in a capitalist system it's called supply and demand.

Rework NAFTA and the tax code and start getting serious about cheap ass Chinese shiat flooding our markets and decent manufacturing jobs that pay a middle class wage will return...and people won't feel like they NEED a 4 year college degree to be able to have a middle class life worth living.

But hey, that shiat is hard. Join OWS and biatch uselessly instead. Either or.

Nightsweat: One of the reasons the Iraq War protests never got the traction the Vietnam ones did was that the far left (no, the real far left, not the people Republicans like to imagine are far left) would cram all kinds of shiat into the protest. Instead of focusing on JUST the war, there were gay rights, immigration rights, anti-NAFTA, fair trade, transgender, pay equity - you name it - signs and people who would take the podium and try to get the crowd fired up over their pet issue instead of focusing on the broadly unpopular war.

I attended two of the protests in 2002 and left each halfway through with a sense of "What the fark was that"?


If I were really cynical, I would say that there's been a false-flag operation at work, sabotaging protests by encouraging people to contaminate the message with extremist noise.

I'm sure you meant that to be insulting but simply lacked the requisite wit and/or intellect to craft a sufficiently impressive riposte. I don't spend much time around the mouthbreathers on Fark much anymore so, yeah, my mistake for assuming someone like you would be possessed of a hint of knowledge. I'll do this Blue's Clues style just for you, sugarpants:

- college applications are up, admission rates are down = greater demand for less spots
- kids pursue college in greater percentages (and raw numbers) these days because of the drastic decline of traditional middle class jobs (read "manufacturing, heavy industry, etc") that don't require a 4 year college degree
- those same kids refuse to abandon the silly notion that they should simply accept a lower standard of living than their parents (aka: "they still want to be middle class and better")
- traditional middle class jobs have been fleeing this country for the past 20-30 years due to taxation pressures on the employers/providers of those once domestic jobs, the elimination of international protectionist trade structures (that'd be the NAFTA part) and the rise of Chinese (and other 2nd and 3rd world countries') economies whose records for consumer safety, respect for the environment and outright governmental manipulation designed to reduce American competitiveness in the global marketplace is abysmal and in violation of many existing trade treaties which we fail to do much more than complain about (things like MNF status for China despite manipulation of the yuan, flagrant ignorance of international patent and copyright agreements and illegal dumping of various products designed to destroy foreign marketplace competition)

In short, if there were a way for graduating high school students to make a decent living without a college degree (like what used to be the case not all that many years ago), the demand for such would drop and, due to that, colleges wouldn't be able to charge the exorbitant tuitions they currently demand for their product.

There. Clearer now? If not, rather than try even harder to craft an even less effective smartass ignorant response, go find an adult or even a reasonably competent child to explain it to you.

except that because it is subsidized, they can "demand" whatever they want and it will get paid.

Rich people will always pay for that degree
Middle class people will always borrow for that degree
Poor people - well fark poor people. Enough of them will get in on merit or for throwing a ball that we won't feel guilty.

They keep jacking up the price, people keep paying/borrowing so they keep doing it.

Ask our friend Peter Schiff: A hundred years ago you could work for a month on the Ford plant to pay for a year at Yale. Today people are paying down student loans for 30 years after going to Yale. Has the quality of education at Yale gone up a few hundred fold? i doubt it.

All that's true enough. Thing about the Ford plant part though: those jobs used to be plentiful and, if you were good at what you did (or had a particularly strong union) you could work your entire career there and retire. You won't make your millions but you made enough to live a reasonable middle class existence...and, on occasion, pay for your kid to attend Yale.

However, those jobs are way down in number from what they once were and they're under constant assault still. Kids can't aspire to be a line assembly worker in Detroit like they used to, right? So, what do they turn to and need to acquire in order to remain in the middle class?

I won't claim that tuition rates have kept pace with what Ford pays because they haven't...but Ford pay has been declining in overall numbers while degree seekers have been skyrocketing. As long as we pay teachers, charge for books and chalk, have entrance standards and award a degree at the end, education will remain a commodity and it will be subject (at least in part) to market forces (supply and demand).

yeah - and that's how it should be. i'm hope i've been quite clear which "side" of this issue i'm on.

You always read (or were told) that college graduate makes about a million dollars more over the course of their career than the average high school student. If this is true why is it necessary for government to subsidize such a great investment?

There is nothing wrong with taking a loan out to pay for something - but that's not what a government subsidy is. A government "loan" is a risk-free - otherwise why would they enter into that market at all in the first place? they're doing it to give loans to people that otherwise couldn't get them.
That's great - but they're doing so at the risk of other people's money: yours.

So government makes riskier loans than do private lenders. That's not good practice. It also might explain why almost half of the students in this country don't graduate in 6 years.

A NORMAL business that is subject to normal economic rules is always going to try and keep costs (and therefore tuition) down. What incentive does any academic institution have to do that?

THAT is why yale is charging close to 30, 40, 50, 60k a year in tuition. 
The same reason a dog licks his balls.

Again, all true. However, what empowers the dog to lick his own nutsack is that his effort to do so is successfully rewarded. If the demand for college degrees decreased and Yale kept jacking their tuition into the stratosphere, at some point they'd discover their efforts to make more and more money via tuition was counterproductive to that goal.

That assumes a lot of perfect circumstances like a lack of collusion amongst colleges, those same colleges being unable to successfully lobby for greater access to their campuses by foreign students, etc.

And yeah, I'm not a huge fan of government backed loans. They're not at all secure loans (which is why the government is involved in the first place because the private sector has actuaries that know it's a lousy bet) and they make them with taxpayer funds. If they were secured against assets I'd be more in favor...but then that would lead some to decry how education is only available to those who own things (aka: "the rich" which would actually be the middle class).

Recently, I've had discussions with my stepson about his desire to acquire a degree (a laudable goal) versus looking at a trade. Many trades feature a workforce that is rapidly aging with few follow-on younger workers to replace them. Machinists in particular are practically uniformly gray...and machinists can make a damn good buck. He won't consider it though.
