Let's Liquidate Community College


President Obama wants to make community college free to all. But we already have way too many unqualified people going to community colleges. Did you know that the number of students who successfully graduate from publically funded community college is only 20%? And that figure is for students who take up to 3 years... to complete a 2 year program!

Put another way, 80% of students who go into community college don't graduate in a reasonable period of time. And community colleges are heavily subsidized by the taxpayer. Why should we subsidize schools where 4 out of 5 students drop out? That's an incredible waste of money!

Furthermore, what is actually taught at community colleges? For many students, it is basic reading and writing. There is a place to see how Spot runs. It is called grade school. It is called high school. It is not called college. If students can't learn how to read and write in 12 years of schooling, they are unlikely to be successful in another two... which explains the high dropout rate. Why should taxpayers pay to try to teach basic skills at the college level?

I would argue that they shouldn't. You could perhaps make a case for subsidizing access to vocational schools, where people learn specific skills related to the jobs they hope to get. But trying to teach semi-illiterate 18 year olds to read and write like eighth graders is a waste of time and money for all involved. The fact is that many people simply aren't suited for college. And that's ok. Not everyone is going to be the CEO of Citibank. There are many jobs out there that don't require a college education.

So in light of that, I propose that all community colleges be abolished. Take the land and turn them into shooting ranges, where citizens can practice their second amendment privileges. Or turn them into prisons or holding areas for illegal aliens pending deportation, or a place to store nuclear waste, or perhaps a combination of all three. Any of these uses would be much more useful than what community colleges do now.

Politico High On Rand Paul Pot Policy


Scientists say that evolution normally takes tens of thousands of years to occur. But in a remarkable study, scientists have found that the species that evolves the fastest is the mainstream Republican. What else to explain the sudden reluctance of most Republicans to take on the stealth legalization of marijuana? Lighting up the debate on pot decriminalization is none other than Rand Paul.

The mark of a good work of fiction is one in which you accept one or two untrue facts but everything else has to be believable. That's a skill the dilettante agit/prop writers at the New York Times seem to lack in an article describing how President Obama wants to reduce income inequality, but nothing in the article even remotely makes sense.

Mark Levin's Challenge to Conservatives


Influential talk show host Mark Levin has called on constitutional conservatives to come up with a way to appeal to young people. Levin said it is not enough to make intellectual arguments for conservatism and constitutionalism, we must come up with a way to reach young people that has emotional impact. I'd like to step up to the challenge, using nearly the same buzzwords that the Left has programmed young people to respond to, like "privacy", "equality", and "investing in the future".
