Why would any low information person want to get in the way of their confirmation bias? You're asking a lot from people there.

Wanting it to be true is just as good as it actually being true.

Have to add this one for the other side.... fake quote from George Washington

^ well, it didn't specify which George Washington. Could've just been a random buffoon with that name.

I can't stand the options we have, but Bernie Sanders isn't honest.  He's more honest than some politicians (maybe even most), but his campaign has been based on telling college kids and underemployed college educated kids what they want to hear.  He doesn't have a realistic plan to actually pay for his programs.

The other thing is that most of these people don't really understand "European style socialism" all that well, or what it would mean coming over to the US. A lot fewer people get to go to university over there. We've had as many as 70% of our high school graduates do at least one semester of college. That would never, ever work with "free" college. Most of the European "free" systems are way more selective and people on the lower end just have to find something else to do.

That's probably a good thing, but all these marginal college students struggling to find jobs these days who think they'd have been better off with paid for college simply would never have gotten to go. I don't think they want to hear that.

I've been saying that for years here. Just like most, as in probably 98%, of US liberals believe healthcare systems break down to status quo vs. single payer.

Yeah, no thanks. Keep your Europoor socialism in Europe. Fuck you.

I would actually be fine with free college if (a) it was limited to qualified students and (b) it was limited to useful degrees. Also limiting college to skill based classes and cutting out all of the art classes and political indoctrination coursework would be good.

I think the average Berniebro envisions everybody getting government money to get an 8 year degree in gender studies and that would be a massive disaster.

Who would you appoint to determine what is a useful degree? Government is complete garbage. You want to support free college? Fine, you fucking pay for it. Don't take the meager sums I'm able to cajole from drug dealers and rapists to support your pet project. Fuck you, munch.

Am I only one starting to see the picture of the girl standing on a toilet for (it's claimed) an active-shooter drill?

This is starting to make the rounds on my Facebook, and it's invariably supplemented with a melodramatic post about how guns are making our children unsafe.

In a related question, am I the only one who thinks the psychological damage we're doing to small children by teaching them to be afraid all the time is far more of a concern than the 1:2,500,000 chance they'll be shot at school?

I do not engage in Facebook shenanigans. I will take your word for it. I think Jr. texted me that pic yesterday. I will berate him for it.

I used to ignore fire drills. I hope I would have had the strength to ignore active shooter drills.

Useful degrees are not that hard to define.

As it is, your money is being used to subsidize loans so that people with mediocre and sub mediocre intelligence can go into lifetime debt to get useless education. It's a totally broken system.

We had active shooter drills for these guys . You a bunch' big pussies
