funding your studies with your virginity

"I'm an 18-year-old virgin with student funds to pay and I'm looking to sell my first time right here. I'm brunette, 34C, green eyes, all in proportion and good looking"

Well, according to this report she's found someone who will put up NZ$25,000 in cash and will do it today.
I've been offered the money in cash and I'm going to do it this Thursday. Sorry I'm at work so I can't speak any more

Lindsay Mitchell says " Don't let the Greens get hold of this. They'll immediately scream, education should be free for all!"

And that brings me to another point. The Greens are pretty good at quoting UN Conventions. They did it with the UNCROC (UN Convention of the Rights of the Child) during the smacking bill. Now if the Greens were to comment on this, would they mention the International Convention on Economic, Cultural and Social Rights, ratified by NZ over a decade ago - particularly Article 13.2, which says:
Higher education shall be made equally accessible to all on the basis of capacity, by every appropriate means, and in particular by the progressive introduction of free education

No, of course they wouldn't mention this convention, as Greens use UN conventions merely to back up ideology. But it's a good time to mention that we are breaching our international treaty obligations with regards to tertiary study. Pity student groups aren't saying much about it, preferring to rabbit on about voluntary student association membership instead.

So much for being more like Sweden, where tertiary education is fully subsidised.

Have you read degrees for all by Bob Jones?
Personally I don't have a problem with free education as i view it as a social investment.
But not for the "mating habits of a lower nakker gurgler or some such".
Politics and economics and serious stuff like that!
