Dear Bernie Sanders, a message from Jim Lantern, 28 June 2016:
You’ve heard of “Anyone but Trump.” How about “Better Sanders than Clinton”? Not a bad idea, really, regarding college – I attended back in 1975 at age 19 (born in 1956) – not for free then. But in 1981 I got my MTV on its first broadcast day. Anyway, you don’t go far enough – making college free. Ever heard of “Earn while you learn”?
Talk about “Dire Straits” – here’s a couple of excerpts from the lyrics of “Money For Nothing” – followed by the music video…
- Now look at them yo-yo’s that’s the way you do it
You play the guitar on the MTV
That ain’t workin’ that’s the way you do it
Money for nothin’ and chicks for free
Now that ain’t workin’ that’s the way you do it
Lemme tell ya them guys ain’t dumb
Maybe get a blister on your little finger
Maybe get a blister on your thumb
- We gotta install microwave ovens
Custom kitchen deliveries
We gotta move these refrigerators
We gotta move these color TV’s
Yes… I want my MTV!!! I mean the MTV that existed when it first began in June 1981, which also happened to be when I first got cable TV. That was years before the Progressive Liberal Democrats on political correctness steroids totally screwed it up with so much social madness.
Socialist Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders believes in MONEY FOR NOTHING AND CHICKS FOR FREE!!! No? Right. I mean, MONEY FOR NOTHING AND COLLEGE FOR FREE!!! Keep in mind, they don’t teach Common Sense in college or any university. Some people are educated beyond their intelligence, and some people are intelligent beyond their education. Intelligence is not limited to what we learn in school – what we are taught in school, thank God.
[I didn’t post anything for Music Monday (yesterday) so I’m making up for it today Tuesday 28 June 2016. Now back to the subject at hand…]
I do believe in apprenticeship, on-the-job-training, for hands-on experience. I believe college should be a natural extension of high school, but with streamlined education so that “college” is done by age 21 – “high school” done by age 16. I believe “college” should be morning classes, followed by afternoon apprenticeship to make use on a job what was just learned in ma classroom. So I’m more extreme than Bernie Sanders wanting college to be free. I believe students should get paid while they learn. No more college debt, but a surplus upon completing apprenticeship to then work full time in a profession. Considering Donald Trump’s former reality TV series “The Apprentice” he should like this idea, known as “Earn While You Lean!” The afternoon job pays for the morning classes, your living expenses, and more. By the time apprenticeship is completed you have some money saved up.
