Synopsis: This book is dedicated to the billions of ignorant American taxpayers. Without them this tale of a Pacific island college could have never been dreamt up. This book contains several webpage links, all functioning at press time, and is best read near Internet. …the College of Make-Believe (COM-B) grants less than three degrees for every 100 enrollees … COM-B is a make-believe educational institution from which greater than 90% of enrollees never graduate despite the lack of traditional rigors of academic challenge. Instructors are expected to, and do, bend over backwards to get enrollees to pass, all to no avail. Focus is on keeping enrollees in school and the Pell Grant money flowing. Academic integrity is a joke. ... In essence Make-Believeians are being paid to enroll in classes at the College of Make-Believe. ... shut down the whole campus or cause the enrollees to become students, either outcome would be correct. Either outcome would be better than its current deplorable state of affairs. Shut it down or clean it up, but stop scamming Americans out of their hard earned money. ... instructors teach nothing; enrollees learn nothing; instructors receive paychecks every two weeks; enrollees receive Pell refunds every semester; and everybody is happy with the turd-free punchbowl. ... The fecal matter must have had hit the fan back then, the splattering repercussions of which are still being felt more than a decade later. Ever since then instructors at College of Make-Believe have been bending over backwards to get enrollees to pass, keep them in school, and keep the Pell Grant money flowing. Academic integrity, of course, has been a joke ever since. ... Yes she realized it right there and then, call it an epiphany if you will. She suddenly realized that this place was a joke, and they were all in on it. Everyone of them was in on it. Her head swirled in a sea of nausea. She looked down at her desk and put her hands together. A silent prayer ran through her head: Please, please don’t you become one of them, don’t you dare. ... why are the enrollees never absent or late when it comes time to pick up their Pell refunds? Why is it that, on payday Friday, Make-Believeians are never late getting to the bank before closing time? And NEVER sick on payday Fridays? ... This is theft. This is stealing. This is outright deception and fraud. The people who are doing this to this poor girl are cheating her. They are telling her that they are giving her $1.00 but when she goes off island to spend it toward earning her bachelor degree she realizes it’s worth only $0.75 and there’s just no way she can ever make up the deficit, a deficit which increases exponentially with each passing semester. And this is just but one more way that the Pell Grant Dropout Factory destroys futures. ... Ebola was all over CNN. It’s a wicked disease she thought, but not as bad as the epidemic from which she’d emerged unscathed. With Ebola people die, their corpses are quarantined, and the survivors grow wiser for the experience. But teachers gone awry relentlessly infect hundreds, thousands, and have a lasting impact on students throughout the remainder of their lives. Nobody ever grows wiser. ... the financing of higher education for the people in the Fedapilated States of Make-Believe, who have consistently shown a blatant lack of desire for such, needs to be reassessed.
