J          “Forgive. 

K          “But do not forget how we as a society got into this mess.”

. . .

J          “Everyone else has a hand in the government pocket for less beneficial undertakings.  Why not let the kids belly up to the trough.”

K          “If some of the graduates are not relieved of the financial yoke, the economy might further stagnate because they cannot participate.”

. . .

K          “The cost of the SIC (Schooling Industrial Complex) is so expensive because it feeds layer upon layer upon layer upon layer of bureaucrats who do not teach but instead leach.  What teaching is done is done by adjunkts.  And the real cost of an education is the cost to really educate oneself after the schooling/indoctrination process.”

J          “Going to college today is not worth it, but not going to college today is not worth it.  College is still the gateway and the choke point to economic success in our society.”
