Bernie Sanders Has His Fingers On The Pulse

... of snot-nosed college kids who think everything can be had for free and cliché-loving progressives. My favorite of his quips was where he showed confusion about secured and unsecured loans. "Why do we pay 3% for mortgages and 8% for student loans?" or something like that. It was breathtaking in it's ignorance and stupidity.

Close behind that gem is this one, seen on a friend's Facebook stream.

Err, dude? When you wipe out the traditional family, you end up with a tidal wave of social pathologies which lead to more criminals which means more prisons. On the flip side, without two parents, kids don't do so well in school and don't go to college.

Oh, what the heck. Why not join in? After all, if we can put a man on the moon, we ought to be able to come up with interesting and catchy clichés.

"If we can put a man on the moon, surely we can design a society that doesn't require a man to "go to school" until he's 35 or 40 just to be able to support a family"

Oh, wait, a man supporting a family is the last thing progressives want, isn't it?

There are too many people in college now. How many waiters with college degrees do we need?
The scary thing is his followers are so stunningly out of touch with reality. How did people get so stupid?
All "free" college for everyone will do is have us pay for a lot of kids to flunk out of college. And, of course, the universities will raise there tuition prices at three times the rate of inflation.

Yeah, my daughter going through public high school was a real wake up call to me. If that's the education most of our voters are getting, we're in trouble.
