A Way Out for College Kids

Altho I studiously avoided liberal arts classes like most Engineers, the U. managed to sneak a little into Economics, philosophy, speech, poetry and literature. And we were not inundated with liberal ideas ala Plato and Keynesian economics.

20 years is 3.5 % inflation in college tuition. Probably less than the real cost of living over the last 20 yrs. The problem is general inflation and lack of job and salary growth do to overly burdensome government and unfair trade agreements with the East. The lack of performance in college performance is largely due to poor primary/secondary schools and lack of preparation requiring colleges to be dumbed down. Many foreign students coming here excel.
Bernadine should make a good judge, after all it takes one to know one.

Wish that I still did live in CA in my old 4x2 in Sunnyvale Bought it for about 45K in '67 (before Si valley was more than just a farmers feed store in the apricot groves). Last time I checked that rancher was over $1 million. Commuting on the foothill expressway up to Palo Alto was(still is?) a beautiful drive tho.
This is exactly why politicians are considered to be disingenuous no matter what the subject or political spin that they are selling. It would have been a great opportunity to emphasize the mental health and psychotropic drug dimensions of the problem and at least appear to be more balanced in his position instead of being the US chief gun grabber.

"..state should use the background check database to hunt down non-compliant owners.." To anonymous editorial scribe: It is illegal for such a data base to exist for just this reason. The data is retained at the FFL dealer and may be accessed on a specific Ser. # basis to track a specific weapon known to be used in a crime. Attempts by BATF to illegally copy these records en mass is being pursued in the courts. So much for trusting our federal government 'not to confiscate' registered guns.

A question occurred to me. Why does the UN care what happens re. guns in client countries? Is it for the day that they intend to occupy the US with their Blue Helmets?
