    Obviously he couldn't handle it, that's why he dropped out and went crazy. :tongue:

    No, its just another example of why government shouldn't be in the education business.

    I suspect Obama had absolutely nothing to do with the decision. It really isn't helpful to pretend otherwise. It makes you look like a hack.

    How nice, those guns that killed a dozen people were bought with government welfare.

    Of course he didn't personally make the decision. But whenever anything good comes from the government (like "saving" GM) Obama gets credit, so why not in this case?

    Because some random kid went nuts and shot people at a movie theater? The logic behind that is outstanding.

    Actually it has more to do with the fact that he was unemployed and couldn't find work in this career field. Why are we wasting tax dollars to train people in that career field if there really isn't that bad a shortage?

    If the health care industry needs people in a certain field let them front the money to train people in it. They'll do it a hell of a lot more efficiently than the government will.

    Because it is as fucking stupid as Obama getting the credit. If it works one way, it works the other. Logic... it is your friend, embrace it.
