    If you're going to get all snarky about it and not show me where liberals want free college, then fine. I'll assume that's a false assertion.

    I did not agree to bailouts before, I do not agree with them now.

    We bailed out the banks and the auto manufacturers, right? In theory, they are paying us back for these "loans". How will we be paid back for bailing out individuals?

    When you say "creative writing" or "liberal arts degree" (which aren't capitalized), are you implying that those realms of study aren't valuable?

    Yes, they are impractical.

    Agreed. I have a problem with the concept of too big to fail. Every business has a right to succeed, every business has a right to fail. Period.

    College and medical care are a privilege, not a right.
