They went to community and state colleges. Don't know if that makes a difference in price compared to universities. But, the costs are escalating too fast compared to the average income (around here) of 50K.


It probably makes some difference - the most I ever paid for a single book at a community college was $96, in the early 80's. Back then, it seemed ridiculous - until I got to university a few years later.

Did you go to college? We sent three. It takes all our resources along with loans and grants, together, to make it all the way to the end. We are finishing our part up and the kids take over the loans once they graduate. I can't imagine how anyone except the rich will be able to afford the cost with the tuition increasing 13% every year. At least.


Yes, I went to college. Actually I'm still in college, post grad. $600/yr for books is pretty low. That's probably one my lowest book costs for a year. One of my business law books was $400.. I did the military route (not for college, I had no plans at all to go to college and wouldn't go if it wasn't paid for) my current job pays well and I use zero skills I have learned in college. I use the practical skills I learned in my military training. Prior to military I managed a restaurant, making 50k+ with no education other than a hs diploma. There are plenty of jobs out there that pay great with no college. That's my point, college is not a necessity to live a decent life.

Yes the same do nothing republicans that have blocked everything Obama has tried to accomplish by voluminous history breaking use of the filibuster while at the same time calling him a "do nothing" President. I mean seriously how stupid can people be?

The concept is still Marxist redistribution of wealth. how much or how little depends on the social engineers and how many increments of Fabian socialism they are applying to Keynsian/Capitalism. We are a mixed economy, so nothing is going to be straightforward.

Also I would remind that Lenin himself said that communism is the goal of socialism.

And why shouldn't Republicans block monstrous bills and insane foreign policy? It's the least they could do as they cannot stop his abuse of power with his Executive Orders. Even impeachment was pretty impossible due to the Senate being controlled by Democrats who still support his radical Progressive policies. The Democrats have made quite the show of acting like its Republicans who are the extremists but Republicans right now are far more moderate than these DSA people in the Democrat Party.
And face it, O even expanded TSA with all that nasty groping. How disgusting and invasive that is. He expanded the Police State, he signed of on the bipartisan NDAA extended the Patriot Act, got us militarily involved in Libya against Congress. (and McCain the co sponsor of NDAA is as RINO as it gets, he's considered a moderate).

I think you need a dose of reality.

If obstructing things that should be obstructed wrong? Or do you just want change because of change?

Obama's change will inevitably lead to the very people voting for to struggle. Liberals are weak without a fake society propped up around them.

Nine times out of ten, "progress" is a tool used for control, the same as hatred or fear.
People don't really change. They just do the same things differently over and over again.
One more thing: all these acts that the Democrats and Republicans are passing? They're trying to control society, and culture, and nature.
And you can't. Laws against murder have been on the books since man first started killing, and it hasn't let up yet.
This idea that we can control people is a costly and horrific lie, an expensive illusion. Coercion is essentially a destructive force that needs to be balanced carefully against other destructive forces. (You *can* fight fire with fire, but you have to do it right.)

Power comes out of the barrel of a gun.

Perhaps the saddest thing about that is that those "low-life Republicans" are ALL WE HAVE standing between Obama and the things he wants to... AHEM... "accomplish".

Ain't it a sad thing when the ONLY guys trying to save you are the ones that want to be the ones to eat you instead?

The difference between Marxism and Fascism is who gets to keep your money after you are robbed of it (i.e. "after it is redistributed by government decree"). In Marxism, "the collective" ( read "government" - that's the way it has worked out in every practical implementation ever attempted) keeps it, and in Fascism a private corporation keeps it.

The end result is the same for us victims in either case.

Wow, just wow. Upon reading the thread title, a few names popped into mind, and OP, you didn't disappoint.

Here's a thought, why don't you wait until the Republicans actually take control of Congress before you criticize their performance?

Sorry, but I find it hilarious that you posted this, when you'd be one of the first to defend President Obama against critics who question his performance after six years.

Will the Republicans change anything? Who knows (probably not), but geez, at least wait until they've had control to criticize their use of it.

I think you need to understand WHY college tuition is rising at such an extreme rate. I would guess the majority (if not all) would like to see the cost of a college education come down. But it is important to understand why the cost is escalating and for you to focus your energy and blame in the correct place.

The financialization of college has caused the dramatic increase in college costs. It is through financialization that entities sit down and figure out exactly how much they can extract from others in a transaction, causing the price to rise right to that limit. At the same time they lobby for "ever-easier-appearing" terms that increasingly transfer the fruits of the result of whatever has been financialized from the buyer to the seller through that increased price!

The result of this paradigm and the unholy alliance between banks, Wall Street, Washington DC and the colleges themselves is that the marginal utility of college degrees for many, perhaps even the majority of students, is now negative.

Remember that the school, the lender, Wall Street and Washington DC do not care about individual outcomes. They don't care if college is a good deal for you.

That is what happens when anything becomes financialized; the only metric that matters is the aggregate outcome for the financial chef; that is, his goal is to strip all but one penny of the benefit on average from the participants and keep it.

The closer he gets to that goal the more money he makes. He does not care about your outcome, only that in aggregate the pool of "buyers" keep just enough that the next group will come in the door.

In other words so long as they can point to a few rocket scientists that make $100,000 a year right out of school that you can only make $30,000 and leave school with $150,000 in non-dischargeable debt, thereby virtually guaranteeing financial hardship if not outright bankruptcy, does not matter to them at all!

The colleges are not only aware of this they are willing participants in that they have their own finance offices that will help you arrange for your own fiscal destruction and, if they (or you) can talk your parents into it, theirs as well.

This must be stopped -- but until the financialization of education is reversed it won't be. Until that day comes the best you can do is to take a long, hard look at the numbers and figure out how to get the education you want without taking any debt at all. If that cannot be done given your specific set of circumstances then in most cases what you're proposing to do is objectively a bad deal.

Here are the bills passed by Congress. Not really seeing any of the Democrat talking point rhetoric regurgitated in the OP. I'm not really impressed by what I see either though.

BHO "Elections have consequences." The electorate has spoken and they do not like his policies.

The desires of around 15% of the electorate do not constitute "the will of the electorate."

23 million or so voted Republican, 21 million didn't.

The GOP tea party philosophy of hatred, fear, greed, and selfishness is in full swing in the nation’s political landscape…


Point a finger at another you have four pointing back at you.



NOTHING ON COLLEGE TUITION which is ready to explode


So you seek handouts for college, stripping others of their hard-earned money.



NOTHING ON URBAN BLIGHT


You seek to blame hard-working Americans for Urban Blight and then requests handouts to fix what they themselves have broken.



NOTHING ON GLOBAL WARMING


You seek more handouts for stuff caused by the Sun.



NOTHING ON WOMANS EQUALITY IN THE WORKPLACE


You dont not want women to progress by merit. You want that jobs are handed out to him for nothing.



NOTHING ON POVERTY


Another code for "Handouts please"



NOTHING ON THE MINIMUM WAGE


And again "Government forced handouts please!"



NOTHING ON VAST ECONOMIC INEQUALITY IN THE NATION THAT’S GETTING WORS DAILY


"economic inequality" is another way of saying "We dont make as much as others and want handouts!"

Your ENTIRE post is a whine that cries for handouts. When enough people think like you, thats when civilization as we know it, collapses because the world is run by children crying for handouts.

a reply to: TDawgRex Comparing counties side by side, over State lines. The counties with the higher minimum wages have had greater economic growth, higher employment and minimum price changes. While the counties in States with the Federal minimum have lagged in growth, employment, and have an increasing cost of living.
The price of goods and services, if in sufficient needed by more people keeps the prices down. The company makes money on increased business. More people can afford the goods or services, so company profits increases despite the increased cost of labor.
