The Value of a Global Business and Econ Degree

You just have to see this...

The following picture was shared on a libertarian friend's facebook wall.

Setting aside the veracity of the above receipt .. the comment section got a little rowdy... as someone referred to the person who presumably made this transaction... as "human garbage".  Enter our heroine...  Whom I shall call... "kristin"...  well...because her first name is kristin.

Here are a few of Kristin's comments:

Kristin:  God damn you are the most Republican person I know. I understand not giving people who don't deserve it food stamps. But why in the fuck would you want to see good people starve? Of course its the government's job, aka our jobs, to help keep others from starving. Unless you want to live in a heartless, disgusting country. How can you demand a better standard of living within our country without wanting to help others or pay taxes? Sigh.

I particularly enjoyed this comment... as she complained that an officer in the Libertarian Party of Alabama was somehow Republican.

Kristin:  So you know everyone that is on food stamps? YOU ignorant fucks are the trash. Have a heart and understand that not everyone was born into the environment or family you were.

Kristin: There are plenty of people who have multiple jobs and still can't support themselves. Especially places like CA where I live. It's expensive.

We are all shocked to learn Kristin lives in California.  She continues...

Kristin: I'm done with the debate. I'm going to go about my educated lifestyle. Have fun living youre terribly close-minded life. Fuckin hicks man.

The poor dear is getting so angry her grammar is suffering...  this isn't good.

At this point... and Evil Libertarian jumps in...

Evil Libertarian:  Kristin, sweetie, consumption is the driving force of capitalism, which, capitalism not corporatism, is the greatest economic system this planet has ever seen...over consumption is a right of the people, to buy and spend as much as they choose...it only strengthens our economy.

Kristin: First of all, do NOT be condescending with me. Second of all, consumption is of course great for our economy, but its not great when people eat too much and get fat and die. It also doesn't mean that I don't value a meaningful life more than the economy. People worry too much about how big their flat screen TV is or how super sized they can get their Big Mac when there are children dying of AIDs and genocide in the world. People need to get their shit together. And that's coming from a Global Business and Econ major.

Now this is important.  Kristin is a Global Business and Econ major.  I want to make sure everyone understands that.

After someone else brings up Austrian Economics...  Kristin blows them away.. with this amazingly awesome retort...

Kristin:  And what does Austrian economics have to do with anything? But yes, in fact I do know some considering I was just there last year. I know a lot of the basics of the economies within the EU.

And there you have it.

Kristin the Global Business and Econ major knows all about Austrian Economics... because she was in Europe just last year.

See friends?   Put down that Milton Friedman.  You don't need to read all that.  You just need to do some sight seeing in Chicago.

Obviously Kristin should seriously reconsider her choice of educational institutions...  unless of course she has already graduated.  If that is the case... she should sue them for fraud.

Her stupidity is Ph.D quality isn't it? Her response to Austrian econ is almost as funny as that one you said you overheard while on vacation that bacon comes from rocks. That bit of stupidity from an American citizen still makes my head spin.

"But why in the fuck would you want to see good people starve?"

I don't want to see anyone starve. Why should welfare leeches get to have a better standard of living and eat steak and lobster when the tax payers footing the bill can't afford hamburger helper?

I can't help but believe she is going to feel really stupid sometime in the near future.

Orion said...

Don't count on it IM2. Here kind of hamster logic is impervious to reason. It would likely take a personal and traumatic collision with reality to jar her. At that, I don't think I'd give her a 50/50 shot at coming to the correct conclusions regarding said event.

black said...

Wow... it's real.


jm said...

I was going to ask you if she was hot, but hotties seldom have even a pretend interest in econ, let alone a genuine one.

Nate said...


No. She's a solid 6 I would say.

Can't believe you missed it Nate. It was performance art: demonstrating government malinvestment via student loans in real-time.

"good people starve?"

I would never watch good people starve and do nothing. I would, however, not hesitate to deprive a leech of blood while I use it to bait my hook.

This is proof God loves us.

I do wonder if He created the bubble head strictly for comic relief.

Nate Winchester said...

I do believe she was thinking of "economics of the nation of Austria" rather than "style of thought".

Which makes it even funnier when people are so proud of their misunderstanding.

Res Ipsa said...

"This is proof God loves us."

Ya but Kristen is allowed to vote.

Ya but Kristen is allowed to vote.

That wasn't God's doing.

Res Ipsa said...


No reason to blame God for the foolish enfranchisement of the female.

You guys are very harsh.

I thought the fact that Kristen knew Austria was in Europe was spectacular for a bubblehead.

TD said...

Please, please, please share some of the responses to her "Austrian" remark! (Along with any reaction from her to being called out as a fool.)

Thanks for the suggestions you have discussed here.

Something else I would like to express is that computer memory needs generally rise along with other
breakthroughs in the technology. For instance, whenever new generations of
processor chips are made in the market, there's usually a related increase in the scale eferences of both the laptop or computer memory plus hard drive room. This is because the program operated by simply these processor chips will inevitably increase in power to leverage the new technological know-how.

Howdy! I know this is somewhat off-topic however I had to
ask. Does building a well-established website like yours
take a massive amount work? I'm completely new to running a blog but I do write in my diary on a daily basis. I'd
like to start a blog so I will be able to share my own experience and
views online. Please let me know if you have any kind of
suggestions or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers.
