  •  Education? (3+ / 0-)

    Other countries subsidize education for their young adults because they see the value in an educated workforce.
    There's no money for education. Money is only to be used to bring "democracy" to foreign lands at the point of a gun. In addition to education, I would add infrastructure, health care, and so on. Wish I could label this "snark" but, I don't think it is anymore.

    Where are all the jobs, Boehner?

      for monopolizing access to foreign resources under the guise of  spreading democracy. Think of all those juicy contracts to be had during those time we "spread democracy at the point of a gun," all the money we can "loose in the desert" by the pallet, all the oil fields and rare earth mining operations to be had--also at the point of that gun.

      Education here means "programmed company man" No independent thought necessary, just learn to conform conform conform--and if the things you actually know don't add up to what the company expects--well keep it to yourself, you know what we do to whistle blowers around here...

      Gentlemen, congratulations. You're everything we've come to expect from years of government training (Zed, MIB).
