re: Considering childhood has essentially been extended into the college years... - volod
Honestly I'm ok with increasing the age of voting. But as per your statement, I think drafting should be raised to the same age or preferably done with both genders and/or abolished. Sorry, but I take issue with you saying its okay to send someone off to war but not vote on those who send them ?...

re: My simple solution for school security. - volod
I agree with you. A deterrent is typically cheaper and usually makes kids feel that its impossible to pull off. That said, I think the bigger issue is what leads to these crimes. We need better systems to counsel troubled youth. ...

[quote]the schools have been engineered to punish these kids if they don't conform, and on top of that, they gear the education towards feminine traits. this is why college is like 55-45 or something insane now. i think graduation may be as high as 60-40[/quote] I've never really understood the f...

Nursing being a medical profession is not always included in STEM calculations. Nursing is one of few exceptions of a woman dominated major that does very well. Same for Pharmacy. That said, nursing programs are very competitive. It still hold true that women are not getting the most m...

[quote]Most of these stats don't take into account student loan debt.  I know men and women that made 45k out of college with a low ceiling liberal arts degree and had 150k in student loan debt.  That 45k is still more than most entry level blue collar jobs, but the net is less because of the ...
