Seek professional health. Whether psychological or sexual surrogacy, you need to get over your obsession.
Hey Hey Hey!!!....It was you and Hollywood who brings up the appearance of their asses....It provides me with disturbing mental images, that block out my real concerns, like giant, Texas sized tatas...<giggitey..giggitey>

There are all sorts of things NOT listed in the constitution. Marriage, God, the presumption of innocence, right to privacy, reproductive rights, education, right to vote, etc.

Do you really want an uneducated country??

Article 1 Section 8 spells out the 17 enumerated powers that the Federal Government can spend the people's money on..... The very root of our current unfunded mandate debt, goes right back to a bunch of men in black who were intimidated by FDR and reading something into the General Welfare Clause that was not intended.. This is the very reason that we need an Article 5 Convention of the States and straighten this kind of bad interpretations of the Constitution out....

Now, there you go again, who said I wanted an uneducated country??...But education was a job of the States and local governments....not the Federal Government..

Really I have worked for the same company for 29 years, doing just fine without the Government tit in my mouth. If they do give free higher education, I want reparations for missing out on said free college or trade school

I got through college and received three degrees basically for free.

Don't be so pouty and petulant that you weren't smart enough to get scholarships and fellowships.

Fellowships paid me to receive two Masters degrees!

The purpose of the Ninth Amendment was to create a rule of construction. It has nothing to do with rights not listed.

I'm so proud of you.....I went to college for free too...on my GI Bill...at night...after working a 10 hr day.

But that is not the point.....When I was in high school if you would have said I would go to college to learn accounting, business management, marketing, real estate law....I would have said "WTF are you smoking!!"....But after 6 years in the service and working trades, I knew what I needed an education for....

That is why I say very few kids just out of high school have any idea of what they are suited to do, so how are they going to make that investment successfully??....That's the major reason that there is so much unpaid student debt....bad investments....Now if you give it to that kid for free you are just going to increase the number of badly invested education...

You're not talking about a higher/college education.

You're talking about advanced technical school education.

They are not the same thing.

I'm very happy with my education and the career it afforded me to have - and I had one of the worst possible majors supposedly you can have!: theatre!

Almost every single time we get this push back from the RW about education it boils down to resentment. "I worked hard for my money." "I didn't get the chance." "I shouldn't have to pay for someone else." Blah blah.....
First of all, this country is rife with examples of paying for others--for the good of the nation. Property taxes for public education, even when we don't have school aged children. Public libraries. Parks. Paved roads. Healthcare.
The attitude seems to be "I pay my taxes so it's not fair that OTHERS are cheating me and not paying their fair share." This is a very narrow view and not in our nation's best interest.

Second, a college education is about much more than getting a degree. It's about social skills. It's about life-long learning. It's about curiosity. It's about different cultures, social mores, lifestyles, ambition, competition, being challenged. It's about failure AND success--deadlines and requirements. It's about growing up and finding a passion.
The benefits of education at any level are intangible and immeasurable.

An uneducated country is a country without a strong military. In fact, it's a threat to our national security. An uneducated country is a country without exceptional leaders, innovators, entrepreneurs, researchers, dreamers, and teachers who ultimately guide/mentor all other professions. There is absolutely NO EXCUSE for a country as wealthy as the U.S. to downplay the importance of education.

Bring one room school houses back where you learn the three R's. Learning the three R's gets your foot in the door.
