No, we need an education system that prepares people to be self-sufficient.

Vigorous disagreement is a basic right in every free society. What the radical right now does is: resort to name calling and deciding who gets to speak, what constitutes patriotism, even who is deemed worthy to be considered American.

This post is a clear example. No substantive argument on the ideas or ideology.
Simplistic bait for the rabid: "moron", "communist", "idiotic", "dumb", "socialist" and finally "3 strikes you're out". Basic argument: if you dare disagree, respect and common decency are out and your freedom of expression should be revoked.

Wow, free speech is a basic right? Thanks for pointing that out. Doesn't seem anyone on the right stopped her from speaking, as you claim. But, you seem to be unhappy about my right to speak out against her.

Her article is so idiotic on it's face that it doesn't deserve further consideration. You may notice that she makes no "substantive argument" on how her idiotic idea would work. I'd love to see someone tackle that.
