I'm fucking 19 and already 22,000 dollars in debt cause of college. This shit is not cool yo. Why dont we have shit like that in America?


Because people like me don't enjoy paying extra to send folks like yourself to over priced universities. The parents of the students should be taxed at a higher rate then that money should be recycled into the higher education system. As a single property owning male with a car and a job I have to say I'm getting sick paying for other peoples kids.

I'm a big fan of America. I've spent lots of time down there and have many American friends. But the corporate greed and political propaganda regarding universal health care has gotten the best of you. I could not even fathom the idea of having to pay for medical service. The idea alone scares the shit out of me. Never mind the fact that your pharamcutical companies RAPE the shit out of you. You are being criminally over charged for prescription medicine and you guys bend over and take it.

With my job and being Thai boxer I'm in and out of the ER and have had many major surgeries and have never paid a dime. Some of the best care in the world too.

To whoever doubted the living conditions and quality of doctors in Canada is as ignorant as one can get. Do you think Canada is some 3rd world country lol?

Canada is a free market democracy just like you. There is no reason a developed industrialized nation shouldn't be providing universal health care to its citizens. The world doesn't know whether to laugh at you or pity you.

some of you guys need to know that health care is not free in most european countries BUT everybody (even if you don't have a job) gets the minimum insurance, no matter what. and our politicians (they are far from great) don't allow companies to rape the people. they can't just charge what they want for shit, they have to pay their employees a minimum wage and stuff like that. so most people can afford the 100 bucks for the standard insurance. i don't know one person who has 2 or 3 jobs because 1 can't pay the bills, this just doesn't exist around here. and i think this is where the problem really is. and if you call that bad socialism, i don't know what the fuck is wrong with you smile

and yes, i love america but living there, i don't know...

Word though we are getting raped. Our medicine companies are ran by politicians instead of doctors and pharmacist. And to the people who had comments about my college situation,why should I have to settle for inferior education when I'm just as good as any other student? I mean cause I dont have the money I shouldnt be afforded the same quality of education as the next man? That shit is pure greed yo. Everyone deserves a fair shot at education. If my grades and work are just as good as everyone else then I should be able to go to whatever school I choose.

For real I love America,but I wouldnt mind leaving here and going to the UK or something. It's technically the same culture plus more.

i heard that free health care is not so great because the gov't needs to spread the funds evenly to everyone so it's hard to get some serious bills paid off if you ever get some.

i wish i could show you guys a video of a lecture that took place at my university. this author made a few good points. don't go to college. too many people go to college these days that a BA is nothing special anymore. he said that you should find something you're good at and persue it because chances are, you'll live a life you wanna live and you might make even more by doing what you wanna do instead of diving face first into a college career studying something you don't give a shit about and starting a career you hate and have no passion for.

Save for a few elite schools, a ton of French universities are overcrowded, subpar, and generally shitty. It's actually quite a big issue in contemporary France.

...And are you kidding me dude, if you apply to a school in France or abroad that is gov't subsidized you are going to be paying full tuition unless you're brilliant and get a scholarship. If the case was different everyone would be crossing borders to get free education.

Dog Americas so called shitty school will set you back. Unless you go to community college but they dont have the resources that other schools give so you dont get the same education. Id rather go to an average school in France for free instead of spending 10 stacks on a shitty school in America.

Thing is you can go to community college, do well there, and get into a real good school w/ a scholarship. Two of my friends who were avg high school students transferred from community college to Boston University (a good school) and got 1/2 tuition scholarships. Hell I know ppl that have gone from community college to the Ivy League. Not to mention a lot of states have good schools that are either free (Cali has Berkley and UCLA among others) or quite cheap (Umass, UMD, UVA, Penn State). And if you can't afford it, there's always aid from the gov't and/or the school itself; not to mention student loans. The French system is considered a bit of a failure but American schools are the best in the world and attract students from all over the world, there's a reason for that.
