Very well said. Unfortunately, many of these indoctrinated college graduates grow up to become the next politicians and end up stifling the economy and private business.

Wow that's still cheap!! Each class I took was almost $ 2k . I went to a private Catholic college though.. I still feel that college is somewhat overated.. Most kids in college are in La La land when it comes to reality.. In a lot of ways it postpones the entry into the real world, especially kids who go away to school on some theme park campus. I'd never said my kid to one of those places..

Reason kids are in "la la land" is due to their parents making them that way. Of course kids take advantage of liberties.

your're absolutely right, it's funny how when kids graduate, start paying taxes, and taking on responsibilities, their attitude about the "real world" quickly changes..
