That loan has been available for years!


Perhaps, but I also need it with no collateral put up on my side. I need 2 million dollars just for the asking.

Here is the link to the Harvard professor who says universities will be going bankrupt in the not too distant future. It's actually 50% in 15 years.

If you knew the government was providing a floor for the price of your services, why would you lower the price below that floor?

No one has mentioned that once the gov. has control of the rating system, institutions that dont play the party tune will be cut out of the cash.

Should have mentioned this is the same thing they are doing with Common Core.

How true the two above posts are. Heaven forbid that the government will dictate the curriculum that meets its standards and gives you the PROPER bang for the buck, but this new Obama policy assures that this will be the case.

The government can by this means control and quite effectively OWN the universities, without actually showing ownership on paper. This is the essence of how Fascism operates.

Exactly, but why do so few see it? the gov never fixes anything and sometimes it aint broke. Not everyone should go to college. I should know, I was/am one. It is just another step towards total control.

Because all of our lives we have been taught that the greatest evil manifestation of government is socialism leading to communism. Little do we know today that the system devised by Mussolini was very well admired by our politicians clear up to FDR, and it is the dream of restoring Mussolini’s model that predominates our politics of today. It was never really about democracy leading the charge to stave off the evils of socialism and its purest form, communism. That was always just smoke and mirrors. It was always about leading us down the path to Fascism, the definition of which is the fusion of industry and state, with private ownership of enterprise that is so thoroughly government regulated and manipulated and controlled that it doesn't really matter who the owner is on paper. It was moving along nicely due to the fake depression brought upon us in the 30's, and the various massive WPA projects, etc... of the great depression were showing the benefits of the fusion of state and industry to us right here in the USA. But then Hitler came along and threw a monkey wrench into the works for the Fascists in the USA, so they had to go underground. The morphed version of the grand plan post Hitler taught us that Fascism means killing the Jews (which it does not mean at all), while the government-military-industrial complex slowly moved forward with its grand Fascist plans virtually undetected due to our ignorance and our having been mislead by the media and government into believing that Fascism is something that it isn't, and that we had thrashed and crushed it out of existence once and for all with our great victory in WWII. As long as those in power here in the USA didn't do what Hitler did, the government could plod along with the grand design while the totally duped populous was lulled into a belief that the only remaining governmental evil was socialism/communism and our system would never allow communism to happen here. We even fought stupid and unnecessary wars against the rise of communism to prove our resolve against the one and only remaining evil governmental system post WWII, while ever plodding along down the road to Fascism the entire time.

And then something of a (provoked?) dream happened for the power lusting Fascists. 9/11 gave them free reign to bring it on full speed and full force. No longer would they need to plod along slowly with the grand design post Hitler's messing things up for them many decades ago. They even threw another nice sized depression at us for good measure, to soften us up to the wonders that the fusion of state and industry hold in store for us.

It seems that a lingering depression is a pre-requisite if you want your suffering citizen/serfs to see the great and noble benefits of Fascism. And for some odd reason it all seems to work much better if you also have petty to major wars and lay false blame, so the military-industrial complex (including the militarized police) can both profit and prove their worth in tax dollars to the masses at home. Mussolini purged the Communists and the trade unions and had petty wars and slaughters aplenty in North Africa. Hitler blamed and slaughtered the Communists and the Jews, and he conquered a few petty neighboring countries (the plan for which only devolved unintentionally on the part of Hitler into a world war because of treaties that Great Britain and France had with some of Germany's neighbors). We blame and slaughter "the terrorists". Our model of Fascism is a vast improvement upon the older and more savage models. We use sanitary methods.

And then there is the spying on the citizenry (you never know who just might be a terrorist or a Communist or a Jew or whatever else floats your Fascist boat unless you snoop and spy on everyone), and of course you must also control the news media. We have perfected and highly sanitized these Fascist requisites as well.
