    Re: Obama Proposes 2 Years of Free Community College

    I can actually get behind Obama on this. I've always felt and believed that education should be free and all knowledge be given out freely. I know there's a lot of naysayers on this. Frankly my dears, I don't give a damn.

    yes pointing out a pandering ridiculous idea is well part of America. if you don't like it you are free to move to a country where they do not
    allow for this. hear Cuba, Russia, NK all hold similar ideas.

    again you failed to answer the question. Who is going to pay for it and how.

    if you would like to do that they have education funds that you can put your own money into and have anyone on there.

    also what about those that have to pay (you know there will be an income restriction).

    Obama: President Proposes 2 Free Years of Community College

    Does anyone have any thoughts as to how this can actually work?

    Because I'm not liking this idea:
    Does Obama have any idea of who is going to pay for it?

    Yeah yeah, money money money, blah blah blah. There are some things in this world that shouldn't be about money in the slightest. Education is one of them.

    The only way education wouldn't be about money is if you taught yourself.

    So teachers don't deserve to be paid?

    How would you go about making all knowledge available for free anyway?

    Yes. A special tax on conservative voters.

    Trailer park conservatives don't really want to see a light for their child. They think that working a $10/hr job for the rest of their lives is "success".

    Why force the taxpayers to pay for someone's college education. If someone wants free education, there is Coursera, Khan Academy, and a host of other resources where a free education can be obtained.
