Free College?

If you think college is free, you're stupid.

Here's an original idea for idiots. Get a edited job.
Don't go to college unless it's for a degree that employers want.
You aren't entitled to an instant six figure salary just because you have a Sociology or Lesbian Dance Theory degree.

And you have no edited right to demand the taxpayers pay your student loan. You ran the debt up yourself.

The issue of paying student debt is a complex one. Might be better to suspend interest accrual and still require the student to pay the principal.

The issue of free college should be considered given that other countries do provide free college. That means we have to compete against a better educated work force...A number of people I've worked with from India or China did go to school for free...

Students in college are WARNED about taking on too much debt. The registrars make them sign documents understanding that. And they accrue debt anyway, sometimes just cashing entire checks and partying. And then they imagine that their Lesbian Danced Theory degree will automatically get them a six figure job.

The issue of free college should be considered given that other countries do provide free college.

That is a LIE. There is not ONE institution in the entire world where the educators work for free. There is no such thing as free college.
What you're thinking is free college is college paid for by someone OTHER than the person getting the education. Kinda like if I stole your car. It wouldn't make it a free car. It would be stolen.

That means we have to compete against a better educated work force...A number of people I've worked with from India or China did go to school for free...


I understand a blue state's education establishment being inferior to India or China's government indoctrination centers. But NOBODY goes to college for free. Your welfare checks were not earned. So the things you buy with them are not free.

You are playing a silly game of semantics...grow up.

Fifty years ago I went to college and it was free.
Fifty years ago, college was not free. The dorms weren't free. The Professors didn't teach for free. You are lying.

If you didn't pay for it, someone else did. It wasn't free.

If I rob your houses, take a thousand dollars, whatever I buy with that money is not free.

The only people that should get free college are Veterans, that should also include automatic upgrades to full citizenship on a successful completion of four years active service if they are aliens.

(When you make stupid statements like that, everybody has to wonder if you ever made it out of the third grade.)
What do you expect from a group of people who follow an idiot that tells us his $3.5 trillion tax and spend plan will cost $Zero...

Not complex...You bought it, you pay for it. You could go back to your Germany and get a free education. Remember you get what you pay for. There is always a reason why it's free.

Perhaps you dolts are envious of me. My classes were free and I paid for my books. I found that most who wanted me to fail were conservatives. So much for the kool aide.

My ancestors are Dutch and Irish. Not German...but that is only a minor error on your part...

India. In case you had missed it a large number of IT workers these days are from India...same with a very large contingent of doctors.

More than I expect from people who follow an idiot who says windmills cause cancer or that he'll pay off the national debt in just 8 years....

Funny cuz you picked a German name and the Dutch speak a West German language.

As far as qualified people who emigrate here legally...Welcome. My mother did the same.
