Education is Free, College is Not

Education should not be a debt sentence.

Today’s “progressive” nonsense: ^ as seen on facebook (The Other 98%) This wanna-be student is holding up a sign complaining about how education costs money that they don’t already have. It doesn’t actually cost money, it’s the college that cost money and their prices go up the more money there is to chase those services. As […]
