it goes back to evolution of pack days when the Alpha Male/Female would go on a long hunt and often come back with food which is regurgitated out. Pups would welcome the Alphas by trying to get as close to their mouth as it gives them the best chance to get food.”
“wanting to legalize people just because they would vote for you is a sad fact of democracy”

“No one wants to legalize just because they may vote for that party; however when you hear the way republicans denigrate people of Hispanic background the GOP has no right to expect they will get many of their votes.”

“What you call a sad fact, is just your opinion, and is not really true. I don't believe that is the only reason, and there are many others you may not have considered. Opinion/fact. Get it?”

He might be and they might want to look into it, but you are suggesting that he be limited and controlled for the rest of his life based on one sentence.”

“For Profit Colleges ----- make profit
non Profit Colleges ---- make surplus
that is the only difference. The concept of profit is lost on may of the posters here. Profit is the share of the value created for the customers.
Only governments can coerce customers, no private firm can coerce a customer into purchasing its product. If the private colleges exist then they are providing value to customers. If they don't provide value then they are dead as a dodo.”

“Coerce, no. Beguile and defraud, yes. If a "for-profit" school provides legitimate education and doesn't lie to students about such things as accumulated indebtedness and real employment prospects, it would not fall under the specific scrutiny needed here.
Contrary to some comments here, the students are not dodos, but most of them are marginal students grasping at the only opportunity they see, and their lack of economic and academic acumen makes them vulnerable to the unscrupulous hucksters greedy for the all-too-easy financial aid windfall.
The sense of economics in this comment is no better--phony and false free-market-ism that begs the reality of what is happening. The for-profit industry, if one should actually call it that, would do well to set its own higher explicitly academic standards and to "police" itself, but so far the evidence for that is dismal and unconvincing.
Where the idea that "profit is the share of the value created for the customers" comes from, I can't tell, especially in this case. Here we have huge profits derived from exploiting both the government aid programs and the students, often with little or no real value to the customers, the students.I have seen illiterate students receive a diploma, a diploma rendered almost or actually worthless by the failings of the institutions themselves. And the reason these "private firms" are not "dead as dodos" is the lobbying against regulation they engage so fervently in, just what this posting is about.”

“Condoms are free where? Even if it is, how accessible is it? Can a woman in India get it without being shamed by the society?”
“y dont they simply add a obamacare charge to their goods. Since everyone is involved and the courts have said that it is indeed a tax, there will be no competitive pressure. The consumer pays for it and in turn gets the same from his employer.”

“In India we call it appeasement of minority groups for votes. Sad to see it becoming center-of-stage in US too. It will cause nothing but trouble ahead.”

“"In India we call it appeasement..." So which country are you in today? And would you care to discuss that period of Indian history during which Indian professionals were all but prohibited from getting the exit visas they sought so they could leave and make more money elsewhere? I remember it because I grew up with children of such people. 1975. Don't try being disingenuous when you're not good at it. And, the US isn't India. We don't have a legal system--yet--which enforces caste structure. There is a difference between having an underclass, and having assigned political positions for members of the designated underclass. India still has that, the US never has.”
