Now compare that to the cost of goods, as well as state level funding.


The subsidies in New Jersey, where I live, have gone up over time and I would wager that they have in most of the states if not all. Government does not get smaller.

I personally would like to see more made of getting people adequate vocational training. Not everyone is cut out for college nor should everyone be going to college, it only makes it more expensive via supply and demand.

You mean it has nothing to do with risk free loans?


That's a component, but it's not the only factor involved. Investing directly in education is already pretty risk free. Functionally, there's no difference between offering student loans and just directly giving the money to the schools as far as they're concerned, the only difference is in who pays it back in the end.

At the school I previously attended, when I started in 2007 something like 40% of their budget came from state subsidies, by the time I finished it was only 10%. There have been significant cutbacks.

I saw an article that Kansas State had $3.1million cut which is not exactly a tremendous hardship considering they waste tens of millions on sports programs.

Yeah, I don't care about "sports programs" either. And K-State is -- well, ew. Eww...

Conservative bastion of rural farmers and the poorlyl-educated (for the most part) alumni.

Instead: ROCK CHALK JAYHAWKS!! (KU!)

For those keeping track, Sanders has won five of the last six elections with more than 70% of the vote.

At this rate we're not going to have a nominee until June 7th.

I recently read an interesting article about how little of an ROI college sports programs actually have. If I can find it I will shoot it over to you amore mio.

I just wanted to add-

Bernie won 6 races in 6 days and got 92 delegates more than Hillary!


Six days that changed history!


...and in Arizona, it could get real interesting.

I hope it goes to the convention. I would love to see that witch sweat*.



*Figuratively speaking of course, I would probably throw up in my mouth if it were literal.

So, that's good to know!! Good for you!! (Why did you call me "bud"?) But anyway - please do your homework and due diligence to understand what Bernie is all about. There's plenty of material right here on ATS.

Right here in this thread, in fact.

Super-delegates are not "locked in." And Bernie is just getting started.

And if you ever see me quoting Fox you will know the world is ending. Shoot me then. Large caliber.

Can you be a little more specific what trades in manufacturing?

I'm asking honestly not trying to pry.
