Some of these countries have the highest IQ in the World.

But they aren't as smart as your right wing, Southern, rural, white folks.

You know it all.

That's why Mississippi and Alabama and West Virginia, and Oklahoma are such power house States.

Free education - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Are YOU going to pay for all that free education? Of course not! Liberals want everything "free" but they are willing to pay a dime themselves for their extensive "needs". They always want someone else to pay for the things they want. What a great world that would be if everyone else paid for everything we ever wanted. I personally had to work for everything I have and nobody gave me a cent.

In contrast to most liberals, I actually DO PROVIDE two high school and one college scholarship for students. For those students, thier education is "free", but they know better.

I guess the things that are really worth the most should cost nothing. Healthcare, Education, Housing(the bank can bail out all the foreclosures), Children(just have as many as you want, we'll all pay for it), etc. are vacations included in this entitlement thing?

I have a question. If someone is an idiot and we give them a free education, are they still an idiot?

All those free things are going to be rationed by the government.

Yes, with them keeping most of it before they dole out the rest to us.

Yes, it's free to those who qualify.

In typical liberal fashion, you keep omitting critical facts that would alter one's perception.

That's a concept that pudcracker can't seem to grasp.

If we adopted those systems for the US, those who scored 2100+ on the SAT would go to school for free.

For those who scored less than 2100 on the SAT, thank you for your participation, please turn off the lights and shut the door on your way out, and enjoy your life as a cheese factory worker.

And one of the reasons is because people who have no business being on a college campus are going to school.

Been there, done that.

I roomed with someone for 3 years before saving up enough and having enough from my stipend and part-time job to get my own place. We used a lot of candles, but then our electric bill was only $15/month (and his girlfriend made the candles so they were free for us). You do what you gotta do.

Hardship is good. I think it all comes down to, "How badly do you really want it?" I saw a lot of students who worked full or part-time, sharing a place with others and they had more drive and ambition than those who were showered with what apparently might become free student loans.

He'd be a good cheese factory worker.

I wouldn't disagree, but that is not the attitude in America, and certainly not the attitude of corporate America, or even for small businesses for that matter.

There's nothing wrong with working in a cheese factory.
