Higher education is one of the many factors contributing to the declining economy since like most of these naive pipedream ideas nobody asks the question "and who's going to pay for it?" These poor kids being put decades into debt just to end up with a degree in a field nobody is hiring for -- welcome to flipping burgers while the dropout is your store manager. Oh wait, did I just describe 90% of my graduating class still living at home rent free with mommy and daddy at age 40? To be brutally honest it's sad when my crippy ass is one of the successful ones. But what do you expect when 99% of what school does is teach people to be employees.
Next thing you know they'll come up with this brilliant idea of health care reform being to force people who can't afford health care to pay into a state run program... Instead of socializing health care, let's socialize insurance -- yeah, that'll help.
