UC system is pricing themselves right out of studens. It is very sad when a state school is too pricy for our own California students to attend.
My grandson wants to attend UCSC but it is almost cheaper for him to attend school in another state.

You know, the whole occupation of the graduate student commons by anonymous masked 'students' is probably an engineered PR stunt run by the University in order to discredit the legitimate protest against University policy by students and staff and members of the local community. The real issues, which the 'occupiers' pointedly avoid discussing, are as follows:
1) Corporatization and privatization of the university.
2) Union-busting and subpar wages for all university employees except crony administrators.
3) Indifference to the quality of undergraduate education.
4) Rigged student loan deals that may be directed to UC Regent-linked banking interests.
Instead of discussing such issues, the frauds who took over the graduate student commons have been putting out drivel like this:
"Graduate school is simply the faded remnant of a feudal system... We end up interpreting Marx's 11th thesis... beneathe every frustated leftist academic is a latent radical... We must begin by preventing the university from functioning... blah blah blah"
It's a Communist manifesto, in fact, almost identical to material produced during the Cold War by Soviet propagandists - and here it is, the central theme of the strategic deception operation being run by the university with the aid of a bunch of masked wankers, who are doing all they can to draw attention away from the real issue.
Slimy, isn't it? That's this administration for you - as slimy as they come. Kliger and Blumenthal and the UC Regents need to be forced out and replaced with people who put basic research and public education ahead of corporate greed - and it doesn't really matter if they're baby boomers or not, as long as they are honest and give a damn about basic science and education.

yes, the amount or rate of tax should be fixed with THE property .. not variable with when the property was bought or sold ... current system is nonesense.
