    They don't campaign here, they hardly show up here, and when they do they sure don't let anyone know about it. "Here" for me is the University of Wisconsin - River Falls, which is hardly a bastion of librulism, but I'm hearing about the same everywhere. They don't show up at colleges, and they don't care about higher education or students.

    They've written off almost all college students. So much for the future.

    But Tommy's got the time to go to some two-bit for-profit parasitic reverse-Robin Hood "college". Grrr.

    Good thing I'm stone sober or I'd write what I really think. ;-)

    •  State Universities don't make profits (2+ / 0-)

      for their monied interest donors.  What they should do is offer affordable education so that our young people can get good jobs (and, therefore, pay more taxes to the benefit of all).

      If it were up to the GOP, state universities would close their doors and only private, for-profit colleges would exist.

      There already is class warfare in America. Unfortunately, the rich are winning.
