Comment Re:Subsidies inflate pricing. (Score 1) 1797

Speaking as a engineer and high school drop out that has developed more products by the age you graduated college then you will likely ever do within your career, let me tell you that college for the most people is a waste of time and money.

Most kids go to college to play. Gaining marketable skills usually starts after leaving. That's all well and good so long as you're content waiting (and not earning) 4-8 more years to build any skills needed to get a real job and YOU'RE NOT DOING IT ON MY DIME.

Govt 'education' loans are all about subsidizing the college industry, not education. Same things with local govt schools; all about protecting govt union jobs.

Everything you've listed are goods; not rights; you must take from one person in someway to provide any of these things to another.
Doing so without voluntary consent is theft and a violation of the right of a person to own themselves, their labor, and their free will.

Try reading something a bit more enlightened then a government supremacist scumbag like FDR. Every one of those 'rights' were just the lies of a politician as a means to exert control and gain more power over people.

Because we all know if there wasn't a government to tell you how to live, we'd all go around smashing ourselves in the head with a hammer as we continually run into walls, and the entire race would perish.

It's so very obvious that's the case because the instant a person gains a position of power, they are better then everyone else and more able to make decisions for other's lives, much more so then any person could ever decide for themselves.
