This US Marine’s Response to Million Student March Is EPIC!

Million Student March

A Marine’s response to the Million Student March, a walk out organized by petulant children who believe college education should be free, is making the rounds on social media.

While liberal 20-something college students are “marching” for more free stuff and handouts, one of their peers took an epic shot at their efforts.

James Erickson, a current member of the U.S. Marine Corps, took to social media and wrote, “I wanted money for school, so I marched too.”  The caption was attached to a photo of Erickson participating in a 25-mile hike with his fellow Marines.

The response to Erickson’s tweet was overwhelmingly appreciative (HT Twitchy):

What a novel concept – earning what you want in life. A completely foreign concept on today’s college campuses.

“Nothing of value is free” – Perhaps that should be lesson number one taught during student orientation these days. This however, might be the most appropriate response of all to Erickson’s post.

‘Dayum’ is right. Entitled students today want everything handed to them on a silver platter. Marines and our other service men and women actually understand that things worth attaining require hard work and relentless effort.

Nothing is free. So stop with your walk outs and perceived grievances and get your asses back in class.

    She should have been the one to play the lead in “Clueless” because she is the biggest airhead I’ve ever witnessed. In fact she needs to clean Latrines for about a month and then go through the actual Basic training for Marines like my Father did! She’s insane to think she can hold hostage financially the top 1% of taxpayers and for someone to even think like this is insane at it’s worst! She’s a frutcake!

    No more handouts, period. Athletes want to boycott football, you lose your scholarship. Grad student wants to stop eating, he can’t do that on campus. “You’re expelled immediately. You have 3 hours to get yourself and your stuff off campus and you may not come back or you will be arrested for trespassing. You saw a poop swastika on the men’s room wall Where’s the photo? Twitter? Facebook? On your phone? Do the cops have it ? Did anybody else see it? Can you prove it was ever there? Then you’re expelled for trying to start racial aggression on campus. Get out.

    All of the lies and all of the BS these idiot students — and faculty and staff have come up with to start this crap are punishable offenses. If they are not crimes to be punished by the police then they are violations of university policy. Yes, I am a retired College VP. Yes, it needs to stop here and it’s all legal.

    Grow up and get a life. This generation is lazy and believes they are entitled and privileged. Real life isn’t like that. I work hard for everything I have and appreciate what I have. This generation doesn’t appreciate anything.

  4. John says:

    Why is it that some folks think they are entitled to every for free? I was brought up if you want something you worked for it as nothing is free in this world. Even the freedoms you have today were paid for by Service men and women with blood sweat and tears. If you don’t believe ask a Veteran

    Killing people and breaking things is not productive work. Neither is marching 25 miles. Who cares what you did for your government handout. It was still a government handout. This is just hypocritical preaching from one type of socialist to another.

    Young men like this Warrior are America’s heroes. Those college wanta bees who want everything given to them without earning it on their own rights are NOT the young Americans we need in this country. God bless and keep you safe James and thank you for your service.!!!!

  7. Martin says:

    Entitled brats! I earned my GI Bill for college by spending six years in the military. What the hell have YOU done?

    1. Dora says:

      Thank you for your service Martin!

    I would think that I’d we could give Isreal 4.5 billion dollars a year and they have free medical and free higher education for everyone in their country that we should probably do the same. If we are to compete in a global economy, we need education to be a high priority. It is a good thing to work for what you want, but this is a deliberate shaming attack perpetrated on the public by the same people who don’t believe in minimum wage. Our country is suffering because rich men think they deserve all the money. America used to be about what can we do to make the world better, not how do we pinch pennies. You people have been accepting table scraps for so long that you think it is fair. Get a clue about how the real abuse in our country.

    1. Martin says:

      You are wrong. I don’t support people being handed something for nothing. But I am also a supporter of raising the minimum wage to $12.00/hr. I wish national service of some kind was compulsory. It would teach responsibility and discipline. Six years in the military did that for me!

      1. Martin says:

        Furthermore, a lot of degrees aren’t worth the paper they are printed on. A college education does NOT guarantee you a career anymore.
