    The title is misleading. Republicans do not think College is bad. They think what is being taught in colleges is questionable. When it comes to the humanities and identity studies programs they are right.

    A lesbian history major probably isn't in the running for highest earner, but statistically, those with degrees out earn those without over the course of a lifetime. This is well documented. So, the poster that suggested people go to college because they're "lazy" is very incorrect in his assumption.

    LOL the University of Who The Fuck Wants To Go There. Meet your faculty-

    I'm also curious how you are going to ban on-campus parties. How do you differentiate a "party" from a group of people being in the same room and having a good time? Is there going to be a per room limit? Can a bunch of people be in the same room together if they're not enjoying themselves? Would that be OK with you?

    This does illustrate a certain type of conservative though. That is, people who are very concerned that someone somewhere is having a good time and think we need to put a stop to it.

    Believe it or not, there is more to life than partying and there are many people who find other things in life to be entertaining.

    Of course there's more to life than partying but making it forbidden is some repressive nonsense. You're coming across as the guy who denigrates partiers because he doesn't get invited. Nothing wrong with getting together with friends and blowing off steam bud, it can be a very healthy and productive activity to maintain good mental health and have cool social interaction. You can still do plenty of other things, one doesn't preclude the other.

    Besides you still didn't answer any of my questions. What makes it a "party"? Are you proposing a limit on how many people can congregate in a given area or is there a cap on how much fun they are allowed to have?

    I did not say partying would be banned. It would be banned on campus. Students would be free to engage in degenerate activities off campus. When I say partying I am referring to activities that include drugs, sex and alcohol. If students want to get together in their dorms or a designated socializing area to engage in an appropriate social activity, then there would be no problem as long as drugs, alcohol and sex are not involved. That can be taken off campus.

    Orange County ca is filled with college grads with liberals arts degrees that work as baristas/servers. They are no more cultured and educated than those who didn't go to college. They are if anything more close minded, they are more arrogant, and more "bitter" than those who didn't go to college.

    Imho the pay gap will gradually disappear as more people graduate college with bullshit degrees that doesn't train them for the real world.

    Of course right wingers despise higher education. It clashes with their personality. Right Wing Authoritarians are motivated by their fear. They follow any authority that promises to quell that fear, protect them, etc. The dispassionate inquiry of higher education is antithetical to the right winger’s impassioned cocoon of emotional subservience to authority. That's why they hate science as well. Therefore higher education is a boondoggle and indoctrination of some sort. It’s hard to tell really bc the right winger uses language loosely and thinks so sloppily.
