    Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh announces her crime-fighting initiative last Wednesday, portion of which includes free community college.

    Here is what she had to say per WBALTV:

    “Community college has become critical in providing the necessary education and training that high school graduates need to pursue a trade or a four-year degree,” Pugh said.

    “What we are going to do in Baltimore City is make Baltimore Community College free.”

    Earlier this week, ‘Project Baltimore’ asked this question: How can a high school with zero students proficient in math, have one of the highest graduation rates in Baltimore City?

    In a stunning interview from one of the masked educators who uncovered this possible great theft of education.. They said, “grade changing. Giving out diplomas to students that did not earn them.”

    So, therein lies a major issue of efficiency in the city. An alleged corrupt school system in Baltimore is handing out high school diplomas like candy to students who have zero proficiency in math. Then the expectation is to push these students into free college in the name of stopping homicides. This does not pass the smell test.

    Perhaps, the problem is much deeper and it starts with deindustrialization of the city and 50-years of democratic controlled leadership. This has forced a shocking facial wealth divide - 1/3 of black households have zero net worth.
    The schools will also be required to have male and female midnight basketball teams.

    I wonder what CERN will do when they have an inrush of requests from these "students" to do post doctoral work work there on particle physics.

    I know that personally I'd rather be shot by a well educated murderer.

    Never argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level then beat you with experience.

    Maybe one day the nation will actually have what is called a Purge Day, that movie was really wild but as of now not too far off the mark. Just stop and think forward about 40 years, if of course the continent is still above water. The thought of living in a nation that has more thugs and thieves alive than normal citizens is chilling to say the least. Poison water will be the answer to surviving.

    There was a science fiction series of paperbacks written in the sixties by a writer named E.C. Tubb.

    The protagonist in the series is a man named Earl Dumarest who is searching for Earth. He is a traveler going from planet to planet searching for clues to the direction of Earth.

    He lands on a planet where once a year there is a purge by all citizens against all citizens (old scores settled etc)
