    And if you can't hack it, there's that requirement to keep a 2.0 or better, or it's adios amigo. My freshman year, 1st term the dorm was packed, most double rooms were assigned 3. Second term, plenty of room. Third term, a lot of double rooms were now single occupancy.

    I'll explain it again.

    The WI Gov. elect is facing a massive deficit and is trying to balance the budget.
    He ran on the platform of balancing the budget and specifically targeted this area.
    We elected him.

    But the union (WEAC) didn't ever think it would happen.

    It has.
    Now, in a panic, the union is pulling out all of the stops.

    The union does not care about the kids or the teachers, they care about union dues and power.

    People like YOU (progressive liberals) lap it all up while your legs tingle.

    To Walker, it is about fixing what's broke, keeping his word and balancing the budget.

    To the uniuon leaders it's about money and power.

    If you really honestly don't get this, maybe you could get a 5th grader to explain it.


    RK
    Tell me how the removal of collective bargaining is going to balance the budget, how much is that costing the state? Please enlighten me.

    The only way it will balance the budget is when they don't fill vacant positions due to retirement. Or by cutting extracurriculars or maybe we shouldn't buy any more books.

    Sorry I missed all of this today as I was enjoying being on the water, getting my line wet and basking in the 75 degree temps!

    Has anyone mentioned that the Union is busing in Rent-A-Mobs for the demonstrations?

    Unions, the downfall of American productivity!

    What do all the states that are in deep financial doo doo have in common? They are run by unions!

    Bust the unions and return to financial sanity.

    I was referring to two separate issues that have compounded that have brought us to where we are today. The notion that everyone should go to college is idiotic and has both brought down education standards and raised costs for others to go to school. You are right about one thing the deans of admission should be the ones keeping people out but that's not happening because education in this country is about dollars and not education. Also I find it very funny you are saying the government shouldn't be keeping people out of college but have absolutely no issue with them keeping students in.

    Do you think people who can't even get C's in High School should be allowed into College?

    Actually I do, you advertised it on a thread recently, so I will continue - but this takes away from the discussion at hand, which is how much homework should kids be given.

    Again, you're putting ideas into my head. I nowhere, nohow, no way said the government should be "keeping students in". The professors and grading system is what keeps students in or out. I believe I said in my last post, "make the grade or go home!" How do you translate that into my wanting government to override a college's policy on academic advancement???

    FWIW, I agree that not everyone needs or should, go to college. I would stop short of referring to them as "stupid" however. (your word) My grandparents didn't finish high-school (coal mine and farm work) but were far smarter than most college grads I know, and I learn something everytime I talk to my Grandfather, to this day.

    And where I went to college, there weren't any students who couldn't make a "c" in high school. That was some time ago. If they've lowered standards, shame on them.

    Could you please start a separate thread on "personal attacks" if you really plan on keeping that vein alive?

    Buzz wears "big boy pants" so don't need someone like yourself pimping for him. That BTW was not a personal attack, it was a regurgitation of factual info as posted by someone now having a bad day .
