For years, states have been able to throw tons of money at both the young and the old.  Now that reality is forcing states to be more choosy, well... seniors are much more reliable voters.  I wonder what will happen when younger generations finally figure out that 'socialism' eventually devolves into making younger generations the slaves of previous generations?

Dewey told us that education means squat in terms of producing knowledge or the ability to think critically. All that matters is whether we have social harmony where everyone espouses the correct politics. (Who's drones? Our drones!)

Um, that's, "Whose drones? Our drones!"

C'mon, Sarah. Dincha get it?

Oh, it's sarcasm, right?

Well, excuuuuse me.

Proper grammar and spelling are TOOLS the MAN uses to OPPRESS the, uh, underclass. Or something. Either way, UNITE! With POSTERS!

Well, hell, I would be protesting an educational system that produced people like that, too...

Is that the very definition of Irony?

Not to be pedantic, and I could be wrong, but I think that protest is at Wash U., in St.Louis, not UW, in Seattle, as you stated.

Could be I misunderstood the original source.

I think the building in the upper right is the Music Building at the University of Washington.  I couldn't find a picture from the same angle but these are a pretty good match for the structure:

Jerry Pournelle (who lives in bankrupt California) recently commented on his blog:

"I do have a question for the rioting students: 'You want me to pay more taxes so that your tuition will be lower. What are you learning that will benefit me? What is it you intend to do that will make my investment worth while?' I suspect that what I will get in answer is a lecture on human rights and entitlements, not an actual answer to the question."

If these posters mean to imply that the schools belong to the students, then the students should pay the costs, no? Failing that, it is entirely reasonable to ask what benefit society receives from yet another degree in art history, sociology, English literature, minority studies, et al.
