What an idiot.

You just have to watch and suffer through til the end.

No such thing as free education.

Germany VAT is approaching 20%. Income tax caps at 45%. Property taxes are out of this world. Germany has one of the lowest home ownership rates of any industrialized nation. Multi-generaltional households are common.

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.
Some kids just don't belong in college.

Ok tell me where the jobs are without a college education. You know what, I feel bad for the doctors who have an enormous loan to get the education to take care of us. Who do you think ultimately pays for it.

If the nitwit in the OP video represents the future, we're all doomed.

I suspect this snowflake was constantly told "how special" and what a "winner" he is.

Got a roomful of trophies for just showing up.

Pusscake.
