“I'm actually a very recent grad of The New School (like last week). It's true the class sizes are very small, about 20 tops. I think the highest amount of students I saw in a class were about 30 in total.
A lot of the students are either bored older people with money, or rich kids whose parents are forcing them to finish their degree. They typically drop the class within the first three weeks, and the class size gets even smaller. Which is good because it's easier to have a relationship with the professor (who we all call by their first names cause The New School is non traditional like that), and you can actually get your question answered.”

“It seeme like a hoax, especially since they're advising people to visit their website if they recognize any of the "assailants". Go to their site leave the info and they'll contact the cops; oh and by the way they're asking that you also subscribe to their page.”
“I like it. I wish they implemented it with the Health Care bill. Or if they did, I wish they brought this up sooner. But I want to hear more on jobs. Specific job plans, new WPA, anything of that sort.”
“Yes times are hard, but how much more does the middle and lower classes have to sacrifice?
We pay more in taxes, our jobs are always shipped out or cut completely, our retirement funds are robbed from us. Is there a limit? When is enough enough before the wealthy start paying their fair share?
Can someone please tell me that? Just when is the limit?”

“The bottom half of the country pays zero income tax. The top one percent of wage earners pay over a third of all income tax. How about instead of whining, you go out and actually earn something instead of waiting for a government robin hood?”
“I disagree on scrapping the EPA, really bad idea.
But I do (and god help me) agree on creating an Environmental Solutions Agency that works on newer sources of green energy, and rewards innovation.”

“As long as it doesn't need 100 administrative employees, or it tells us how to live our lives 10 years from now.”

“"But I do (and god help me) agree on creating an Environmental Solutions Agency that works on newer sources of green energy, and rewards innovation." why do I have the feeling that is not what Newt has in mind?”
