thats so stupid!! I agree with you.. but im not in the US so my opinion doesnt even matter!
I'll go broke if I have to start buyin my books. I can't even pay my overdue fines.
2 reasons, Jen1) an educated populace is not in the best interests of career politicians (note I didn't say Leaders) Educated folks ask pointed questions, which is deadly to a Pol.2) After you live through a few more election/budget cycles, you'll recognize that the attempts to make cuts are always engineered to generate the most public outcry so that no (or few) cuts are actually made. Its a distraction game set up to make said pols look like they're doing something. Same as it ever was.
