Socialist education

I think today’s college students are being sold a bill of goods at a hefty price. They go to school to get a degree so they can go out in the world and earn a living. Once they get to college they are met with a bunch of socialist professors who are living high on the hog in their socialist world funded 100% by capitalism. Their wealth comes from either taxpayers or mostly student’s parents or the students themselves, both of whom are earning their money the hard way, working for it in a successful capitalist economy.

Why would you want to go to school to learn a skill needed to earn a living only to be told that you should champion the idea that the government should pay for everything? Why get a degree and work then? Why work while those who choose not to can be paid not to work?

Remember your professor knows where his bread is buttered and they don’t want to have to work for it instead. If you want to succeed and prosper in the real world then take what they tell you with a grain of salt.

By the way, climate change is a hoax. Remember, you don’t have to go to college to be an idiot but sometimes it helps!
