    Several Democratic presidential candidates are running on a platform that promises “free college,” an idea that has been warmly received by many young Americans.

    It seems that many college students don’t want the responsibility to pay their own tuition bill.

    Case-in-point: In interviews with students on Sunday at Carleton College, a small, private liberal arts school in Northfield, Minnesota, they agreed college should be free.

    When asked who should shoulder the expense, students offered up everyone from “taxpayers” to “the 1 percent” to “the government.”
    I wonder if they considered getting a part time job, not spending as much money on dope, getting tatoos etc

    Oh my! How ridiculous!

    I agree with the old adage :

    You get what you pay for.
    It will not be worth diddly!!!

    And I still can't fathom the foolish parents *these days* that send their kids to such expensive places of "learning"
    (read leftist indoctrination) as Harvard. etc.

    A complete waste of time & money!

    My daughter just graduated from nursing school in August and passed the state board exam 3 weeks ago. She has school debt, but doesn't feel anymore else should pay for it. She's a registered nurse and won't have any problems finding a good paying job anywhere she looks unlike those "educated " morons with liberal arts degrees and cant find a job that will pay off their school debt.

    It's about the choices we make...

    How about getting a degree that will pay something or else taking up a trade instead of hiding your lazy a$$ in collitch.

    This proposal will have Zero appeal to young people who haven't gone to college, are employed and paying taxes ... they might actually be motivated enough to vote.

    Too many colleges are pushing those feel good degrees that don't mean shit in the real world; then they blame the world because they're not making 100K plus a year.
    After they get these degrees they should be taught one phrase that will serve them in the future ..." YOU WANT FRIES WITH THAT? ".

    Something needs to be done to lower the cost of tuition at public universities. Some of that could be done by reducing the athletic budgets and having the NCAA either put some limits on how much schools can spend on athletics, or letting the NBA make them their farm league and pay the schools for the services provided. The big game in MI is this weekend, between the Spartans and the Wolverines. It is obscene how much money is wasted on this event. Michigan pays their coach $45,000,000 for a 5 year contract. MSU pays their coach about $3 or $4 million a year.

    I have heard the argument that sports already bring in a lot of money for the school. Okay, fine, but put more of that money raised into either funding programs better so tuition costs can be lowered or put the money into funding more scholarships for students.

    When I went to WMU in the 80s, our coach was Harbaugh's dad. He wasn't a bad coach, LOL. I wonder if he even made a 6 figure salary back in those days. Schembeckler never made that much money until he retired from U of M and went to work for Illitch..

    You speak heresy! You cold be crucified in the south for suggesting such blasphemy.
    Cast your burden on the Lord,
    and he will sustain you;
    he will never permit
    the righteous to be moved.
