Trump World! Where the circus is always in town.
So you are saying College professors will work for no pay?

The contractors building the dorms, classrooms and Libraies will build them free of charge?

Publishers will print and supply books for no charge?

Just because the STUDENT isn't paying for the College Courses...

does not mean it is free


IF THE NON WORKING CLASS INVESTOR PAYS FOR IT.. MEANS IT IS NOT FREE


Remember the First rule of Economics (no matter what Economic model you are living in this is the first Rule)

You are a lunatic

read my post again and put on your thinking cap (if you own one)

I was very clear as to who should pay and NEVER in my entire life have said that anything is free.

I cursed Sanders for running around yelling "free education."

I can't stand that kind of stupidity.
It's as bad as people who don't read your posts because they are a zealot and jst post dogma. This is where you take a bow. .

I agree w/ you besides the "corporations have been able to offload expenses, at least in part in this case, on the taxpayer." Part. The universities along w/ the rest of the education model is self fulfilling. It is a giant money pit that defines it's own need in society just as w/ every other government organization.

Remove all public funds from it and let it crumble.
So, you agree with having professional unions(which are closed shop unions btw), but not trade unions or service worker unions for the non-one percent of the working population!

Most of the debate on this board seems to be arguments between conservative and liberal factions of the same economic class!

It used to be...and probably was near free when you were young! And it probably in your state as well as most others in the state university systems that were set up and either had no tuition fees or low tuition until Gov Reagan in California got mad about college students protesting the Vietnam War! Learn

Someone pays for it. the LWNC want it to be the TAXPAYER funding ALL of their education.
THUGH TAXPAYER! You mean it's one guy out there who pays all the taxes? Too bad it's not Jeff Bezos, or Zuckerberg or the some of the other dotcom manipulators and harvesters of personal information.

How many colleges are paying the dean and university dept heads the highest salaries/while degree'd, tenured professors get no increases to go with their increased class sizes?

And then there's all the *meant to say "adjunct" (part time employee) professors who make subpar wages and no benefits/ but still have to perform the same functions as a full time professor.

*not to mention, how many times have I heard of the coaching staff of the goddammed football team being the highest paid staff at the university! And then they demand brand new stadiums and facilities to go with their job of exploiting unpaid college students who will get brain damage/not a worthwhile education for their efforts!

Just like it is in most other developed countries. But then, those countries don't have the same problem with useless negroes and mexicans that we have. Despite that, I think it could still be done. After all, a high school education is free. All that needs to be done is extend that to higher education. If I thought there was a snowflakes chance in hell of my ever being to afford college, I would have done better in high school.
You start out your argument with a racist comment, and then expect to be taken seriously. And then you blame your lack of education on some asinine excuse forgetting that many have worked their way through college. Or you could have gone into the service. There were ways for you to obtain what you are whining about now, you just chose not to.

Now I will try to find a common sense argument in this thread simply because I agree with the proposition just as Jefferson did.

This is just silly.

1 nothing is free
2 we have a need and will have a need for all different levels of education and vocational training
Do you get paid to be such a douche? Ants, termites and bees all have societies of a sort. And not a single penny changes "hands" to get things done. Of course, human society is different. And there are some things that are more difficult to do. There is also some need for status. Taking all this into consideration, there is no reason why anybody should have to pay any more for a college education than it costs the average student to get a high school education. Now, agree with me worm. I DEMAND it!
