I’ve never understood why parents spend nearly $100,000 to send their children to high-priced universities. The best and brightest of these graduates have screwed up our nation, and yet there are tens of millions of Americans who believe that graduates from these over-priced and under-delivering schools will somehow save us.
Consider this from the over-priced Duke University where it costs $60,000 per year to attend. Meredith Shiner is a graduate of Duke University. She writes for Yahoo News. She’s one of the site’s political reporters. Before Yahoo, she was with Roll Call and Politico.
Duke is a hard school to get into. Young people who attend are smart . . . on paper. People can be smart but also ignorant. Meredith Shiner is ignorant.
After Ted Cruz announced that he was going to run for President of the United States in 2016 and mentioned God a few times, and even said our rights come from God, Shiner had this to say: “Bizarre to talk about how rights are God-given and not man-made. . . .”
It doesn’t take much mental acumen to know that our founders believed that God-given rights were fundamental to the success of our nation.
