Solution: Here are three “reality-based” charts to send to him. These charts show what actually happened.

    Off topic, but important story. This sort of exploitation happens at summer camps too, including reputable ones like YMCA camps–where foreign students were solicited for kickbacks termed ‘donations’.

    Diogenes, that reminds me of the “Scumbag Steve” meme over at Reddit; there was one which read something like this:

    Scumbag University Charges 100 Thou For A Degree

    Hits Alumni Up For Donations

    As for the On Topic… man, how bad does stuff have to get before the GOP liars lose the other 25% of the public?
