More Evidence of an Education Bubble

For some time now Glenn Reynolds has been blogging about the higher education bubble in which the cost of a college education has skyrocketed while its value has plummeted.  What better evidence of it than this?

College Education: Voters with at least a college degree are at least 40% of all likely voters. Here is where Obama does very well leading Romney by 8 points – 47% to 39%.  This matches his 8 point margin over McCain (53%-45%) in 2008 and other indicators suggest he will do well again. His approval rating among college graduates is slightly higher than his overall rating from all voters and slightly more than the average feel he deserves re-election.

And they think they're educated?

Brawndo? It's what plants crave.
I learned that on a tee vee commercial during the movie "Ass".

Remember: Much like "Obama's going to pay my gas bill!", there's an astonishing number of "college
level" graduates that are being led by nose with a potential mulligan on THEIR "fair share" of the economy, if only they'd just re-elect a Socialist for just ONE more little four year opportunity to set in motion a delusional "right" to freedom of personal consequences.

Even "Dunesbury" is jumping on the bandwagon.

Of course, "unexpectedly" with HIM, it's all about the "for profit" schools taking the "gub'mint money" from the too-stupid-for-college first year drop/fail outs, and ZERO concerning Not-for-profit "institutions" "helping" and accepting anyone with "access" to an "affordable" pulse, without informing them they (or their co-signer parents/grandparents) can't simply claim bankruptsy (due to un/"under"-employment) like their parents and "professors" did.
YET!

What's the current line on Rhodes/Pell "grants" for "on-line" higher education, now that one can be "accesed" for "free", if you don't mind not earning an "accredited" certicicate of attendance, or won't "need" free contraceptives and "preventitive" medical wellness, along with with room and board (on the seven year plan)?

And you can even register to vote, engage in political "activism", and "give back" to the very community that labored for your previous manditory K-12 "education".
