re: House denies colleges tuition-setting authority (again). - TheHiddenFlask
[quote]No reason why the state should pay 100% of tuition for a student whose parents make 150K+. [/quote] I'm going to skip the obvious point that those are the people who pay the most into the system anyway. Not everyone is supported by their parents through college. Taking this away from u...

re: Myth: Coal miners were underpaid before the 1897 and 1902 strikes - TheHiddenFlask
I have no idea what they were paid and I am not justifying your troll thread by doing any research. I will say that workers' health was certainly put at risk and that was unfortunate. The great thing is that our system fixed it. Regardless, I'm not sure what line you are drawing here. I know...

Funny that you chose to avoid addressing my thread and instead made a response thread that Required you going back over a century. So, in this same vein: Fact: Africans enslaved the Jews long before any Africans slaves arrived in America. Fact: I don't know what this has to do with anyth...

re: Myth: Low wage employees are underpaid - TheHiddenFlask
[quote]I mean, yeah, I agree for the most part, but most people are handicapped from the beginning due to the government's economics policies.
