Time for Thorns

An independent view on life.

The Bennett hypothesis…

When he served as Reagan’s Secretary of Education in 1987,  Bill Bennett advanced the argument that government student aid had a lot to do with the constant increase in the cost of higher education.   Numerous studies have  proven him  right.

Government aid has also encouraged colleges to offer courses and degrees in idiot things.   Yes, underwater basket weaving was a thing.   Pissed-off lesbian theory is still a thing.  So-called higher education is where a lot of the liberal freaks from the 60s and 70s went and they have taught generations of students to be as disaffected,  disconnected,  illogical and super-sensitive as they are.   They have meltdowns because someone dares disagree with their uniformed world view, or because they don’t feel they should be expected to cope with classwork and laundry and life.

I love knowing that my young cousins and friends will be competing with these snowflakes for jobs in the real world,  and my kith and kin not only won’t be burdened by thousands of dollars in student loans,  they will also have some work experience under their belts.
