On Friday’s broadcast of HBO’s “Real Time,” host Bill Maher said President Joe Biden’s student loan program will make income inequality worse and the issue is higher education is sold “as a golden ticket to be in the upper middle class, but they’re not really getting any education.” He also argued that “education is to Democrats what tax cuts are to Republicans, they think it solves everything.”

It's not about more education for the left. Education is a tool for their kind to make money, indoctrinate, and dictate. These evilenes care only for empowering and enriching themselves; everything and everyone else is only useful to those causes for them. Can you understand the anger of the people who strung up Il Duce after he was executed?

Maher is right in this instance and is often a voice of reason. College has become a scam: a 4+ year summer camp which promises even wastrel offspring knowledge and wisdom in service to a better life. Dollar-for-dollar a college education may be the biggest scam in world history.

Actually it should be illegal to hire a college graduate. They don't know what a woman is. They're not sure what bathroom to use. And they firmly believe that only electric vehicles should be allowed AND all electricity generating plants should be shut down.

What is truly sad is these people think the handout is about forgiveness of student debt. When, in my humbled opinion, it is about something else. First, colleges and universities are needing a bailout and secondly, this handout makes a person indebted to government come tax time. The subject of forgiveness is something that perplexes me. There is a counterpart to forgiveness and that is repentance. Taking ownership of a wrong. We have a lot of people running around saying you have to forgive but they forget about the aspect of admitting wrongdoing. My concern for people receiving this student debt forgiveness is they now have a target on their back. Democrats don't just give free stuff, they expect something in return.

He’s right but he doesn’t mention the true reason for this loan “forgiveness”. It’s nothing but vote buying for the demonrats. They see via the polls that young people are moving to the right so they have to bribe them to come back to the left.

The people off the hook are the ones who got a nice fat loan but dropped out with no degree. Doesn't matter ... they weren't paying the loans back anyway. It's probably rayysist to expect them to.

Education, from K-PhD, is an industry. It lost its esteemed status many years ago when the game changed to provide the gullible with the "golden ticket", and employers the opportunity to hire "highly qualified" affirmative action dolts with great fanfare. The middle class was first trained to push college as the only real choice in career development. turning many prestigious schools into diploma mills into the doctorate levels. And government subsidized the scam with grants and loans, expanding that to include every living human within our borders. Like housing, it was "good for the economy" and "socially just". That bubble just burst on the taxpayers and those who actually paid off their loans.

I'm a brain surgeon and I called a Plumber to my house last week because all my plumbing was stopped up. After working for 2-3 hours he finally cleared all the drains and everything got everything working again. Her handed me an invoice for $5k. I told him that was ridiculous. I told him I was a brain surgeon and didn't even make that kind of money. He said "Tell me about it. I used to be a brain surgeon too...."

Republicans on the House Foreign Affairs Committee have released their report on the U.S. military's final, problematic withdrawal last summer from Afghanistan that concludes no senior Biden administration officials have been "held accountable" for the "tragic" departure and warns the county has again become a safe haven for terrorists. "The choices made in the corridors of power in D.C. led to tragic yet avoidable outcomes: 13 dead service members, American lives still at great risk, increased threats to our homeland security, tarnished standing abroad for years to come, and emboldened enemies across the globe," read the 115-page interim report titled “‘A Strategic Failure’: Assessing the Administration’s Afghanistan Withdrawal.”

In the wake of the 2020 election, many questions arose about the power of the vice president of the United States during the counting of the electoral votes. The 12th Amendment provides that, in the counting of electoral votes, the president of the Senate (the vice president) shall “in the presence of the Senate and House of Representatives, open all the certificates and the votes shall then be counted.” The clause is ambiguous; clearly, the vice president is tasked with opening the certificates (the electoral votes certified by the states).

Many RedState readers will recall our exclusive series covering the bullying and harassment Kamdin Hernandez, a 4th grader in Simi Valley, California was subjected to by teachers and school administrators because he was unable to wear a face mask fully over-the-nose throughout the school day. Due to Kamdin’s attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), wearing a face mask so distracted him that he was unable to concentrate on his school work, yet teachers and administrators berated him in front of classmates, physically blocked him from entering the door into the school, locked him out of his classroom, physically pulled the mask up over his nose against his wishes, and more.

Hollywood star Drew Barrymore has been accused of “racism” for posting a video of herself dancing in the rain on social media. The short video shows Barrymore filming herself laughing, dancing, and encouraging others to enjoy the pouring rain. However, leftists pounced on the video and argued that it’s “racist” because she’s “frolicking in the rain.” The accusation comes from a “woke” activist with the handle @amushroomblackly who posted a video response, that quickly went viral, and accused Barrymore of cultural insensitivity. “Whenever you can, go out into the rain,” Barrymore says in her video.

A plan to save migratory salmon by demolishing four hydroelectric dams on California’s Klamath River got backing from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission Friday. FERC released the final version of the environmental impact statement evaluating the dam demolition plan. FERC commissioners will vote on whether or not to implement the plan later this year. The dam’s operators filed an application to surrender the Lower Klamath Hydroelectric Project on Nov. 17, 2020. The project rests on 400 acres of federal land in Oregon and California, and consists of the Copco 1, Copco 2, Iron Gate, and J.C. Boyle Dams.(Snip)These dams were originally licensed by FERC in 1954; new guidelines suggested

They weren’t the only ones who noticed this strange behavior from Biden and things are just getting worse.

In the transition from gas-powered vehicles to electric, the fuel every automaker is after these days is cold hard cash. Established automakers and startups alike are rolling out new battery-powered models in an effort to meet growing demand. Ramping up production of a new model was already a fraught and expensive process, but rising material costs and tricky regulations for federal incentives are squeezing coffers even further. Prices of the raw materials used in many electric-vehicle batteries — lithium, nickel and cobalt — have soared over the last two years as demand has skyrocketed, and it may be several years before miners

It's only a day since we reported on California’s intention to outlaw sales of new combustion-engined vehicles from 2035, and already the ripples are being felt across the nation. The California Air Resources Board (CARB) that governs motor vehicle emissions for the state adopted new rules that will require 35% of the new cars sold in the state are electric or plug-in hybrids by 2026, with that percentage rising to 68% by 2030 and 100% by 2035. California has a waiver from the federal government to set its own air quality rules, and other states are allowed to opt into its regulations, which are typically more stringent than the national standards.
