A lot of people graduating from college have no job opportunities because your generation fucked over the economy.

Ok. But some posters need to make better engagement and actually, you know, debate the issues instead of just throwing complacent, meaningless, cookie-cutter one-liners around.

Simples!
hamburger gases

lack of commas between coordinate adjectives

The unemployment rate among college graduates is around 5.0%, much lower than the national average. I'd very much refute your claim of "no job opportunities." It likely depends on whether you majored in something that's actually practical, or if you went in for something like gender studies or world music.

Also, I would think if someone was truly sympathetic to the occupiers, the last people they would be concerned about are the people who have been blessed to go to college.

Yep. Do you seriously think it's a coincidence that Bilderberger and hamburger sound quite alike?

Please. I think the Occupiers had the right idea (Wall Street needs to be accountable more than the government) but went about it the wrong way.

College isn't a blessing. Blessings don't come with tens of thousands of dollars of debt.

You act like it was forced on them.

Hardly. It's a choice. But it's not a blessing either.

I've been reading a lot of academia from the 1980s, and holy shit did those guys overuse the comma. It's not just Oxford commas, either. They just excessively dropped commas at every possible turn.

AP Style is the way to go.

I was waiting for someone to point that out. I'm a hypocrite.
