I have said many times...Universities, and even schools generally, are our biggest domestic enemy.
Parents: Home School!
We had a choice in the 50’s and 60’s to choose either education or sports.
The choice then is part of the problem now. College full of million dollar stadiums and empty skulls
I wholeheartedly agree that taxpayer money should not be spent on higher education. Maybe start shifting it towards trade and technical schools?

Liberals want forgiveness of student debt.
We have something that will forgive their student debt. It’s called the G.I. Bill. Sign up for military service for 4 years and we’ll forgive your debt. I am good with that plan.

This is a lesser known but very inportant part of Eisenhower's military industrial complex speech:
Today, the solitary inventor, tinkering in his shop, has been overshadowed by task forces of scientists in laboratories and testing fields.
In the same fashion, the free university, historically the fountainhead of free ideas and scientific discovery, has experienced a revolution in the conduct of research.
Partly because of the huge costs involved, a government contract becomes virtually a substitute for intellectual curiosity.
For every old blackboard there are now hundreds of new electronic computers.
The prospect of domination of the nation's scholars by Federal employment, project allocations, and the power of money is ever present and is gravely to be regarded.
Yet, in holding scientific research and discovery in respect, as we should, we must also be alert to the equal and opposite danger that public policy could itself become the captive of a scientifictechnological elite.

(Democracy dies in darkness when Bezos bans books.)
so the universities are raping students for higher and higher costs and the tax payers are sending them even more money. I’m going to start a university. Care to sign up?

They take over the Federal government, then use Federal funding to take over universities.

Unfortunately the transformation is almost complete. The relentless attack on American institutions are the biggest threat to our liberty.
The enslavement of college graduates by financing worthless degrees and holding a mortgage on the future of the hapless masses of students is crippling.
And for those of us that have earned wealth without the intrusion of Federal assistance, we will be robbed to pay for these socialist programs.
Some one said "To give something for free the government has to first take it away from someone else."
Count me in that group.

Colleges are the head of the socialist snake. They need to be re-engineered. I thought online learning would kill them off, but it’s taking too long.
