    Burny's offering free college and I think some other things. Mr. Magoo should have the full tally of what's being offered.

    Nothing, free if my favorite price. But...just one thing...the only things is this world that are free are air, sunshine and water, everything else someone has to cover the tab.

    Yeah I know we use to invest in our citizens educations but no more.
    That could be another reason other countries are beating us.
    But I'm getting old why should I care. :idunno:

    Yeah, well, those countries can afford free education because we cover their 'street tax' for them. But then...even if we collected that street tax or quit covering them and diverted those funds inwards towards our citizens' educations we'd still be buried in debt.

    My point exactly.... Sanders isn't offering anything for free....he proposes to spend the taxpayers money on the taxpayers.... Healthcare, education....etc.... It's a matter of priorities.....but it isn't "free".....as you already know, of course..... But some apparently don't seem to understand....

    The air, water and sunshine you mention..... Essential to all life on Earth....but Corporate America has no problems polluting the air and water we must have.....profits ahead of life itself...and there is a cost to try and protect those essential parts of the environment from those that don't care....
    Sunshine is free.....why not use it as the valuable source of energy that it is.... Solar power and wind energy is logical....but the fossil fuel Companies would rather keep oil consumption as the main...if not only energy source...

    In Mexico, for example, solar powered water heaters are everywhere.....solar panels are becoming ever more common..... I have solar water heaters on my homes....and I'm putting up panels in the very near future.....at a fraction of the cost in the States....... The air, water and sunshine you cite as free....are also the most important things we have and need.......

    The best interests of American citizens is served when the border is secure
    Allowing low and no skilled labor to flood the job market represses wages hurts all Americans.
    Supplying all these people services including health car and education which they do not pay for takes resources from American citizens
    Time for a wall, it is in the best interest of America

    The thing most Americans don't think about when they bash Muslims is that ISIS kills tortures and rapes mostly muslims.
    So they are not all the same just like Christians
    Thank Obama your son is doing something good over there.
    I voted for Obama twice and proud of it :1036316054:

    The best interests of American citizens is served by Companies employing them here rather than sending them abroad.....unless keeping jobs here is part of a "secure" border....which we both know isn't the case....


    Allowing Corporations to take jobs overseas as a way to pay extremely low wages and have no responsibility to envoromental issues represses wages far more than Mexican laborers coming here to work.....furthermore, those people are often exploited by employers who hire them..... You can blame whomever you want....but taking jobs off shore is more detrimental to wages than Mexican workers... Usually the work preformed by Mexican immigrants, legal and illegal, by and large isn't work that far to many Americans are willing to do for the wages offered..... Are there exceptions?...Yes..always....but by and large it is often the case...

    Supplying all what people?... Illegal immigrants?.... Illegal immigrants do not qualify for healthcare services that is funded by taxpayers.....many years ago....perhaps...but not now....nor do they get taxpayer funded education.... Are there exceptions?.... Yes there could be.....
    Supplying the over bloated military/industrial complex and funding wars overseas that never seem to end takes away far more resources from American citizens....

    A wall to keep out Mexicans is a waste of resources that would be better spent on directly taking care of more important needs of Americans......

    Colledge use to be almost no charge to students years ago. The State paid most of the cost of school.
    Even if you didn't want to get a degree, if there was something that interested you, then you could take that one class.
    Learning something about what interests you is big fun.
