It’s Repulsive How Entitled These Special Snowflakes Feel

An Oxford graduate is suing the university for £1m claiming the “appallingly bad” and “boring” teaching cost him a first-class degree and prevented him from having a successful career.

Faiz Siddiqui, who studied modern history at Brasenose College, told the high court he believes he would have had a career as an international commercial lawyer if he had been awarded a first rather than the 2:1 he achieved 16 years ago.

If he wins, the case could open the floodgates to similar claims from students complaining about inadequate teaching, unsuitable accommodation and poor decisions.

Siddiqui, 38, who trained as a solicitor after university, says his life and career have been blighted by his failure to obtain a first when he graduated in June 2000. He said he underachieved in a course on Indian imperial history during his degree because of “negligent” teaching which pulled down his overall grade.

He is bringing a loss of earnings claim of at least £1m against the chancellor, masters and scholars of Oxford University, which is seeking to have the claim struck out.

According to a report in the Sunday Times, Siddiqui suffers from insomnia and depression which his barrister, Roger Mallalieu, puts down to his unexpected failure to gain a first.

Mallalieu told the high court that his client’s lesser grade “denied him the chance of becoming a high-flying commercial barrister”.

Oxford University argues that the claim is baseless and should be struck out because of the number of years that have passed since Siddiqui graduated.

Sickening.  I hope he loses and he never finds employment again.  Who would want to hire such an entitled whining snowflake.

Trumpites Need to Get a Life

This is vile.

Diners aren’t just great places for an affordable bite to eat.

Specifically here in Philadelphia, they’ve long been places for community members and politicians of all stripes to gather, talk and debate, with a civil tongue.

But the 2016 presidential election may be changing that, judging by the firestorm that has erupted at the Trolley Car Diner in Mount Airy.  A server’s comment to a supporter of President-elect Donald Trump has fueled racist and anti-Semitic harassment—an episode that has potentially disturbing implications for free speech in the era of Trump.

You Trumpians aren’t going to like where all this is going.  Rein yourselves and your colleagues in or you’ll rue the day.

If This Doesn’t Infuriate You, You Lack a Soul, and a Heart

These are the kinds of people Donald Trump is surrounding himself with.

Donald Trump wasn’t the only person to see opportunity in the 2008 housing collapse. As the economy recovered from the rubble of failed banks, foreclosed homes and government bailouts, Steven Mnuchin emerged a winner.

That success is coming back to haunt the hedge fund manager and Hollywood producer who is Trump’s choice for Treasury secretary. OneWest, a bank Mnuchin and his partners established during the collapse, has taken steady fire from regulators and consumer advocates for myriad failures ever since.

In Florida, the company foreclosed on a 90-year-old woman after a 27-cent payment error. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo singled out the lender for squeezing Superstorm Sandy victims. Last month, the company’s successor, CIT Bank, was accused of discriminating against minority borrowers.

Behold, the face of greed and the incarnation of the truth that the love of money is the root of all evil.

Tullian Tchividjian is a False Teacher

Tchividjian’s remarriage was first confirmed in a Facebook post on Saturday by his new wife, Stacie, as she highlighted a sermon he delivered at the non-denominational Spring Hills Community Church in Santa Rosa, California.

“What an honor it was to be invited to Spring Hills Community Church and sincerely welcomed by such a loving staff and congregation! Our time in Santa Rosa was too short, but SO wonderful … Tullian Tchividjian (my amazing Hubby!) delivered an authentic, powerful message,” she wrote in part.

While he did not comment on his remarriage, Tchividjian highlighted the same sermon on his Facebook page on Saturday about an hour after his new wife posted it.

He’s a false teacher.  He is, in his essence, Donald Trump- a con man who deceives and manipulates in order to advance his own agenda.

Total Depravity: The Mother who Injected Her Son With Cancer’s IV With Feces

An Indiana mother faces seven felony charges after court documents say she put fecal matter multiple times into her son’s IV lines while he was undergoing cancer treatment.

Marion County prosecutors have charged Tiffany Alberts, 41, from Wolcott, Indiana. She faces six counts of aggravated battery and one count of neglect of a dependent resulting in serious bodily injury.

Prosecutors found Alberts did knowingly or intentionally inflict injury multiple times on her 15-year-old son, which created a high risk of death.

The investigation began on Nov. 17 at Riley Hospital for Children when officers were called in to assist a child abuse investigation. A 15-year-old was being treated for cancer at the hospital, and medical staff said the boy had several infections that delayed treatment. All the infections were unexplained in origin.

Video surveillance was then placed in the child’s room.

According to court documents, medical staff saw Alberts inject an unknown substance into the IV bag with a syringe multiple times.

In September, medical staff told police the boy received his first round of chemotherapy for his leukemia and went home. But, he then returned a few days later and was sick with fever, vomiting and diarrhea. They continued to say he has had high fevers and vomiting since that day with significant bouts of diarrhea.

Doctors also confirmed to authorities the child has positive blood cultures with organisms that are normally found in stool, and experts say there is no medical reason to explain the ongoing blood infection.

And she admitted doing it… Because she’s evil, that’s why.

So, Betsy DeVos….

Is as qualified for her job as 99.99999% of the people who talk about the Bible are to talk about the Bible…

#DrainTheSwamp My Eye- Trump’s Aiming to #FeedTheGators Instead

Trump cannot be believed.  His promises are empty rhetoric, aimed at conning the masses into supporting him.  And guess what, the masses did…
