The Million Student March by The Elephant's Child

This is just priceless! Neil Cavuto had as his guest Keely Mullen, the national organizer for the optimistically titled  “Million Student March” — to discuss her movement’s plans for making public colleges tuition free.

MULLEN: The Million Student March is a movement for a more equitable and fair system of education as opposed to the really corporate model that we have right now. So the three core demands of the national day of action are free public college, a cancellation of student debt and a $15 an hour minimum wage for people who work on campus.

CAVUTO: How’s that going to be paid?

MULLEN: Ummm, great question. I’m not sure if you’re talking about on a national level or at particular schools, but I can touch on both —

CAVUTO: Well, you want all that stuff. Someone has to pick up the tab. Who would that be?

MULLEN: Ummm, the one-percent of people in society that are hoarding the wealth and kind of causing the catastrophe students are facing…

Yeah, I saw this silly twit on Cavuto. My first thought when listening to her was that she hadn’t really given any thought whatsoever to her plans, or what the results would be if she was successful. She was talking as if this were just another campus function, with no real world impact; something interesting for the resume, and not much thought besides.

That young nitwit could hardly put a coherent thought together other than the goal of the Million Student Whine-In which is to get more stuff from folks they think have more stuff than they should although they earned it. I’d be a lot more open to assisting with vocational schools that could and would provide skills for young people to get “real” jobs and even open a path for them to start their own small businesses after time.
