Why would the charges stick? Fox is about entertainment anyway and liars can be great entertainers.

I agree with a lot with what you are saying. Just give a heads up, I love playing devil's advocate. Hope I didn't yank to hard on the chains of friendly sparring. :)

 

no worries man, all good here :)

She would be the best candidate for the Democrats but something tells me she is not being fully honest in her intentions (I guess you say that for all politicians to an extent). After working in taxes for the state the last two years, I have been pretty good at reading people and probably have around a handful of story narratives to hide from the truth (I'm probably the easiest to deal with in the state due to my nature of being compassionate).


Really and truly it probably has a lot to due to the fact of media, just like Jeb Bush or Hillary. Plus research on her issues that I have reviewed seem never clear.

 

I do not believe any national-level politician - with the possible exception of Bernie Sanders (who is only able to be honest because, Vermont?  who the fug cares) - is really honest with the public or open with their intentions.

 

 

to me, she just is way too inexperienced for pres. I don't know what i'm getting with her, politician wise.  That concerns me.  She needs to be in office for more time... and the senate needs someone railing against banks :P

Oh yeah colleges, would they survive without funding not from government but children themselves that want to go? You do not even get to the root of the problem...... yeah what you stated might be part of the problem but it is merely a symptom.

Ahh I don't think administrations are "the" problem with costs, just that professor salaries are not a problem with the cost of higher ed at all. 

 

My personal feeling is private higher ed, combined with huge amounts of public aid going to people attending private schools, is driving up the cost of ALL education because public schools have to compete with private schools for students, which means facilities, services, and faculty all are also in competition with private ed.

 

The government subsidizing private ed is creating a balloon that I think will burst.

 

I am 100% behind the idea Morrill had of public higher ed for all.  But I don't think the government should get involved in tuition easement for private schools.  But do I have a good solution on that, no, because there are problems if you just pull all private higher ed grants.  huge problems.

 

edit: and btw as someone sitting on a number of committees at a private university, fug the non-profit angle.  what a crock of poo...
