The bigger issue is that overpriced college educations turn out people who can't find a job. Many would have been far better off to start their working careers either straight out of high school or after some technical training. Colleges and universities continue to scam proud parents into sending their progeny off to school where they're charge exorbitant tuition so they can get a worthless degree and stand in unemployment lines. There is no incentive for colleges to hold down the costs because government loans and grants make it fairly easy for anyone wanting a degree in basket weaving to get one. Many of those loans are never repaid.

The kids may make a good grade in class but the subjects don't prepare them for the real world.

You can get credit for sleeping.

We need to reestablish the status quo. A teacher, after 30 years, should not be able to retire !We are aging.
This week Japan announced its intention to cut welfare payments by a billion dollars over the next three years because people live too comfortably.

Imagine that, a government would actually tell its citizens you are getting fat and lazy and have no incentive to work because someone else pays your bills. We just found out you can't get government work by telling citizens they're takers. But after its economy derailed, Japan slipped into a two-decade slumber marked by people giving up on old beliefs and traditions like Japan's legendary work ethic. When we thought Japan would conquer the world, including the...
