    So, let me get this straight. The college system is unsustainable . . . unless other suckers get involved, is that it?

    Don’t ever question the financialization of the whole deal. Don’t ever do that. Don’t ever think or represent the interests of citizens. Oh no. Just be a lazy fraud of a figurehead doing the banksters’ bidding and enjoying the phony “rock star” treatment you get.

    How funny the feighned concern for higher education. This from the man that converted us to a part time service economy.
