The lib. way is really been taught good to these college folks trying to get there education for nothing . go out and get a job and pay for your own education like I did. you will find out you will have a higher respect for your self if you do it on your own, it will make you forget about taking under water basket weaving or finding the composition of a pencil eraser if your paying for it, you will take only classes that pertain to your goal's.

Nevada needs to wake up, in study after study it has been shown that Nevada is near the bottom of taxes and fees yet it has not brought in any additional business, and the businesses here reap huge profits from this, and yet contribute little to the overall economy. These same studies have shown that Nevada can support the increases and must look at these to attract and hold onto the programs and services we have.

Nevada can and should raise the revenue through any means possible, call it taxes, call it a fee increase if we don't do something Nevada will be the Wasteland many folks thought it was in the 80's and 90's when we fought for recognition as a destination other than legalized gambling.

Education is not cheap, but ignorance is. I did not go to school in Nevada and took my share of classes that did not pertain to my degree and yes, I did pay for them. Everything I took helps to make me a better employee and mentor for other students.
