: Until a decent education is available for 100% of the people instead of only 25%, we'll NEVER KNOW, will we?
...as if education is not available to anyone who wants it. I know the problem you have, Barry. You expect someone who wants it (and probably those who don't) to be able to get it for nothing. I expect them to work for it. My dad worked full time at Sears while he got his degree in industrial engineering at Long Beach State University, CA. Then he worked up to upper management at Douglas Aircraft. It was a lot of work but he got what he wanted and what you want for everyone else - interesting work and good compensation.
The problem with free education to the masses (provided in government schools) is that the state controls it. That doesn't have a good track record looking backwards. For all the looking you do it's a wonder why you never spot these things.
: BTW, how's those employees of yours doing without health benefits this Christmas season? No one sick or injured, I hope... 'Effective demand' and all that...
Worry about yourself, Barry. At the rate your posting it won't be long before your living in a box. How do you find the time?
Merry Christmas anyway!
