    That "could" actually be true......
    BECAUSE the Dimocrats have been very successful at making young people dumber than a pile of Rhinoceros droppings

    And...stupid ass people DO STUPID THINGS.

    GREED has overwhelmed the nation. The individual (from Instagram Models, to Corporate CEOs) pursuit of material self enrichment was both the boon for the nation and could be it's bust as well.

    It's the combined fault of The American people for recklessly & irresponsibly supporting detrimental influences, it's the fault of corporate greed, it's the fault of government.....it's your fault and my fault.

    But to say it's the "GOPs" fault clearly reveals a lack of any grasp of reality.

    The question is what (if anything) can be done about it? No matter what, Socialism is NOT the answer.

    So did I when it was $5K a year. Today, it's $20K a year. But it's not like the kids today are making more than we did back when we went to college. Factor in inflation they make less and college costs more. How you gonna go without taking on massive debt?

    So we will have a less educated society. Walmart and Target CEO's love this shit.

    And in a way, so do I. It makes my college degree more valuable. My brother is a millionaire so he will have no problem paying for his kids college and I don't have kids. Fuck it.

    AND, we were talking about this the other day. Many of my co-workers now and in the past have not had college degrees. The president of my company doesn't have a college degree. Many kids go to college and don't know what they want to do. They should go get a job if they don't know.

    I'm in sales. Did I really need a communications major and business minor to do what I do? Fuck no. I would have been better off working at a furnature store learning how to sell. Or a used car lot. Or working for a stock broker which is what I did after 4 years of college. College didn't prepare me for cold calling and passing the series 7. I could have done that straight out of highschool.

    Remember when our parents could graduate college and go work for GM and start raising a family right away? Today it takes 10-20 years to be financially ready to start a family. This is going to lower our population which I love.
