    Manufacturing those products has quite a waste stream. Not that they’re bad, but:

    That could have saved the lives of thousands of native Americans. Of course, if that document also included “You must wash your hands after going to the bathroom and generally try to sustain good hygiene” then millions of Native Americans wouldn’t have died of diseases such as smallpox.

    Multiple areas of proof that all show that Trump is guilty of extorting Ukraine. The Right has no real response to the accusations.

    “In recognition of Col. Trump’s loyal to service to the Russian motherland, as the head of the Special Intelligence Department of Foreign Political Infiltration, he is now promoted to Major General.”

    Gordon Sondland specifically said that there WAS a QPQ. Mick Mulvaney told reporters to get over it. heck, if you listen to what the President himself said. or the transcript. Trump only allows Ukraine to receive military aid if they give him dirt on Biden. Quid pro Quo means This for That. Military aid for help against Biden. I don’t see how this is hard to understand. For anyone. The present scandle is, as Stephen Colbert put it: “The most obvious crime you’ll ever hear.”

    I’m sorry, 65%, not 75%. The point is, tertiary education is hugely important. The more technologically advanced our economy becomes, the more specialists we’ll need. Many jobs that do not require a college degree are prone to being outsourced to automation. As machines are cheaper than workers, a Capitalist economy will invariably march towards automation.I am well aware that individual States run public universities (except for military academies such as West Point).

    Because they are public institutions, universities have no incentive to maximize profits, or indeed have any profits. Tuition is so expensive because Universities are expensive to run. Again, UNIVERSITIES HAVE NO REASON TO MAKE TUITION AS HIGH AS POSSIBLE! Even though they are primarily run by states, the extra funding necessary to fund universities without tuition fees will come from the federal government, with the states individually approving the funding for their universities (like the Medicaid expansion under Obama. I heard that went so well for Gov. Bobby Jindal).

    The extortion and the bribery and the quid pro quo are all the same thing, and Trump has effectively admitted them.

    All of those listed were true. There WAS a quid pro quo. Mulvaney and Sondland said so themselves.

    AGAIN. THE US ALREADY HAS TESTS! What do you think the SAT is? NO ONE is saying that we should remove qualifications for higher education. We still have these qualifications. Also, I will point out that quotas are illegal. Affirmative Action does not have quotas. And yes, tuition-free higher education is another idea that originated in Europe. Many European countries have tuition-free university. This is where we got that idea. And once we have agreed that this will only apply to more useful jobs, the government will only be regulating loans, not giving them out. Furthermore, most schools ARE government schools. In order to make them tuition-free, we just have to fund them directly from government revenue, not tuition fees, as currently. And finally, if three-quarters of jobs in the job market require at least a bachelor’s degree, college is at least useful, if not necessary.

    I really do not understand why so many things that you think about American education are wrong. The kids that go to college today are mostly qualified, and the ones that aren’t usually don’t need financial aid. Finally, colleges are mostly not-for-profit, government institutions. Tuition is high because it is an important source of funding for universities. If the government directly funded their schools, they would not have to charge tuition. Fund higher education the same way we fund K-12 education (it is free for all, although, unlike universities, they are not specialized).
