The Legislative Branch concocted this "crisis," as usual, teaching half the populace to hate the other half, as usual, with a line of "scapegoats" all in a row.

It's just another version of "Hamas," a baal-system of PhDs profiting from atop the rubble, misery and grief of their own limelighting self-importance, The People be damned.

Stop funding paperFAKEwork and start building for real, paying real workers, not 3rd party HigherEd systems. Problem solved.

Look, if you wanted to build the 'infrastructure' of your own private property, and it costs $1 in materials and $1 in labor, do you really 'need' to pay a committee of 'credentials' to concoct paperFAKEwork $10?

If any budget exceeds 3% in 'admin' costs, end it.

We need workers building our dreams, not HighEd concocting paperFAKEwork roadblocks. It really is about National Security.

Kind Regards, always,

Let's just go over the cliff. It's the 1 percent now, next will be the top 5 percent, until we get to the top 50. Then half the folks that voted for this policy will themselves get slapped, and it won't be such a good policy anymore. But it might be too late, cause the policy isn't about $ anyway, it's about control, or power. That's a hard thing to reclaim. So folks just voted to hand over a good chunk of their freedom to the government. Hope I'm wrong, but history says otherwise.
