Why I have next to no chance of ever getting hired.
1. I spoke out publicly on being Aspergers. This now days is a no no. Even if you do it to help others understand Aspergers. A lot of HR departments will search the web and find my name next posts talking about being Aspergers.
This makes me hire risk because of the ADA. They will see me as a lawsuit waiting to happen. Even if I despise such lawsuits.
2. I spoke out on politics publicly. Again this is a no no. Considering were I stand on politics and who is currently in the Whitehouse. Then my degree is also in an industry that is incredibly leftest. If you are libertarian, never get a entertainment based degree like me. You will never get work.
Again HR will search my name and come up with political posts with my name attached.
3. I have spoke out on student loans and the waste of college degrees. Another unpopular topic that one should never speck of if one wants work.
I have never passed one in my life. There for this tests are a barrier to me. A wall to my chances of employment. Personality is more important then skill now days. Personality also does not mean you can’t do the job ether. I can fake happy. It would be like a acting job. Pulse with some jobs, why do you have to be perky? Why is this a requirement?
In some stores were they have this personality tests. I have seen some of the most grumpy people in the world. Who can careless about their jobs. So if the personality tests are working. Why do they have the opposite in the types of people they hire?
5. Some employers will hire you based on your credit score and amount of debt. As an example. If you have a large amount of debt. You can’t get security clearance. Both in the private sector and the goverment.
With the amount of student debt I have racketed up. I have no why of getting these kinds of jobs.
6. I have no industry experience. Before the economy went into its nose dive. My industry of animation. The hire out from grads at my school was close to a 100%. After the economy fell on its face. The industry retroactively started to require three years of industry experience.
When you are fresh out of college how the hell are you expected to have 3 years of industry experience? I had a lot of employers who loved my work, but they were not willing to hire based on that sole fact I had no experience in the industry experience. “Sorry Joe we love your work but you have no experience!”
7. I am stuck loving with parents because of my lack of employment prospects. We I live. If you have a 4 year degree. You have no chance at work. It does not matter what degree it is. It could be in underwater basket weaving and you could not get hire.
Here is why. 1. You are considered a flight risk, they will think you will go for a better paid job the minute you find one. 2. Jealously on the part of the hiring mangers, “he has a degree and I don’t!” 3. The mangers fear you because of your degree. They think you are out for their job.
With all of this I have zero chance of ever getting hired by anyone, anywhere. There is no light at the end of my tunnel. It has caved in and is permanently blocked.
Education and me.
Wonders why when I am trying to take responsibility for my actions. People don’t want me to, aka my debt. It is my fault for being duped in to this loan scam. I did not do my job as a consumer and now I am paying for my stupidity. Ignorance is not bless, it is enslaving. Don’t make my mistake. Only go to school if you can pay out of pocket or you are able to get grants and money sources you don’t have to pay back. Say a rich uncle or something like that. It is not a worth while investment.
I had did not have a good employment background to justify giving me loans. In turn I should have known I had no chance of succeed. With my ever presence of depression and anxiety and autism, I am UN-employable. No one in their right mind would hire me. Why would that change after I have a over priced degree? Again I did not do my job and reserch the topic. It is my fault and I am taking responsibility for it.

Student loan forgiveness act, madness!
My fellow friends from collage seem to be universally supporting Student Loan Forgiveness act. It is a little annoy to say the least. Reminds me of the housing loan bust of a few years ago.
Why does the goverment have to pay off your dept? Considering it is payed from other tax payers. It is not like that money come from thin air. It has to come from someplace. In this case the productive members in our society.
Here is what I would propose to fix the student loan dept issue.
1. Make Sallie Mae follow the same laws as every other loan provider has to follow. Do not give them exceptions, like bankruptcy immunity. Were it is almost impossible for the former student to include his dept in a bankruptcy.
2. Get the goverment out of the loan business. As it stands now. Under Obama care. Student loan under the law can only be done by the goverment. This gives us a monopoly. Lack of competition creates lack of innovation. No developments in new services and products. that can best benefit the student and former student.
Then you also have a system were the goverment can pick and choose winners in who gets loan money, and what schools can accept student loan money, and who can get “Forgiveness”
3. In the short term they can limit the amount of money given out. Like health insurance. Student loans have inflated the cost of education. The colleges think the money from the loans are a bottomless pit were they can keep drawing money from. They don’t need to follow traditional free market principles. They can keep raising the cost forever.
4. Encourage free market to flourish. So we current and former students have employment. Deregulate every thing so business want to grow and hire more people. So we can earn money to pay off our dept, instead of being unemployed.
Just a few ideas I have.

Will not be forced to buy federally mandated healthcare
I have decided I will never do this. I will not buy this mandatory health insurance. If it means I am going to jail. So be it. I can not morally support anything of this nature. On top of all of this. Its not like I can offered it anyway. Fining again wont do any good. I can’t offered that. Like trying to get water from a stone.
I hate it when the people who are proponents of forcing everyone to buy healthcare to car insurence. That is a poor comparison. I can chose not to drive. In fact I don’t even own a car at this point in time. Healthcare on the other hand. The only way out is to commit suicide. Of course even that is against the law in a lot of states.
So police state come and get me!!!! Not like I have quality of life. They way your taking away all my liberties for the sake of the so called greater good. I am ready to be a martyr for liberty.
