Thoughts on Clinton’s promise to ease US college debt

Hillary Clinton, increasingly likely to be the next American president, has a plan for free college, here:

Hillary knows Obama won the youth vote in two consecutive presidential elections by promising to erase the burden of college loans. She also knows the average college student graduates with $33,000 in debt. Finally, she knows independents and Republicans are offering young voters little by way of a counter offer.

But the heartbreaking problem is that independents and Republicans do not need so many student ‘crats to staff burgeoning bureaucracies. In fact, they would prefer to do with far fewer.

And, as noted earlier, much of the U humanities experience today fits students only to be public service union members, forcing their “ideas” on an increasingly powerless populace.

Sobering statistic via Townhall ’s Katie Kieffer,

there are 6.5 million (6,455,300 to be exact) more Millennials with college degrees than there are jobs for them now. Furthermore, when you account for all the jobs forecasted to be created between now and 2022, the BLS says there still will not be enough jobs.

Yes there will be. Government will create them. There are still a large number of areas to invade. Progressive government is a growth industry that needs no rationale expect power, a willingness to use it without compunction, heedless of result, and a docile population.

Kieffer cites people such as Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Ralph Lauren, LeBron James, Michael Dell and Rush Limbaugh, who rose to the top without a college degree.

Sure, but does anyone think that the students whining against freedom of thought or speech are in that league? No, the students will either serve coffee or serve citations, and the latter pays better.

Now more than ever, private citizens should stop giving money to universities via alumni programs, etc. Let the government train its own ‘crats.
