Geez I don't think he deserves to be "attacked" like that for aspiring to go to Penn State or for anything else. He seems like a hard working person to me who isn't looking for any sort of entitlement. Doesn't ring hollow to me, and I think that's unfair. So everyone should just find the cheapest school and just shut up about it.

I majored in sociology and it's done jack for me financially. I had professors who tried to get me to change my major and I didn't want to do it. I wouldn't trade my college degree for anything. My parents didn't go to college. Of course it's much easier for me to say because my education was much cheaper back then, in two private colleges. But there is value in education and the college experience and in doing what you want to do in college that goes far beyond dollar value. All outside economic factors aside. I sympathize with anyone who has educational aspirations and has to deal with the harsh financial realities.

I find it odd to pick on someone for choosing to get a good education, I mean isn't an affordable, good education something to aspire to for any civilised society? Choice seems to be inhibited when money becomes the main factor in educational decisions.

You choose to spend a bit more on education and therefore you can't afford your current health costs. You spend less on your education and you may end up not reaching your earning potential in order to afford good health care, and probably be a less happy individual because you feel like you've never achieved to your fullest extent because you couldn't afford the education you wanted.

It's swings and roundabouts.

I'll just add that in the US you guys seem to have a hell of a lot more to actually think about in life, i'd quickly lose track of how much and what I am meant to be paying for, healthcare costs, multiple different university fees and different scales (though we are somewhat getting that here now), no VAT added to your price tags. I am surprised you guys are not top of the world at math.

Yeah and then we can put them in camps in the desert because they could be terrorists!

In the "I guess Bono won't be a welcomed guest at the White House during a Ron Paul administration" dept:

Can the U.S. afford to spend billions to fight AIDS and malaria in Africa?

Ron Paul: "I think the aid is all worthless. It doesn't do any good for most of the people."

To which I heartily say, "Booooooooooooo!"

The issue has always been whether the money goes to those who it's meant for, or to corrupts governments that change every five minutes. I usually think government aid to Africa comes down to the latter.

I do support organizations like the Gates Foundation, though.

I think it's sad we have to resort to a rich guy who is not a complete asshole to fix our problems for us, as well.

Seeking to quell growing criticism and public attention, "Late Night" host Jimmy Fallon has apologized for his house band's understated musical attack on Rep. Michele Bachmann on Monday night.

"I'm honored that @michelebachmann was on our show yesterday and I'm so sorry about the intro mess. I really hope she comes back," Fallon wrote on Twitter Tuesday night.

When Bachmann, who appeared as a guest on Fallon's show, walked across the stage to take her seat next to the host's desk, The Roots played the opening of a song by Fishbone called "Lyin' Ass Bitch."

While the audience only heard a "la la" refrain, the message was sent. Before the show, the band's drummer, Questlove tweeted, "aight late night walkon song devotees: you love it when we snark: this next one takes the cake. ask around cause i aint tweeting title."

Earlier on Tuesday, Fallon tweeted, "@questlove is grounded."

It's nothing short of disgusting that you approve of what happened. Why on earth are you proud of this? Are you just that indecent of a human being?

How is any different from what what Beck and Rush do on a daily basis?

Oh, I know the difference: Fallon had the decency to apologize. Am I missing something? Is it only indecent when it happens to someone on your side of the aisle?
