Much like you do at LERN? Hypocrisy much?

Gender pay equality would be great if you had actually practiced it at LERN. The only gender pay equality you practiced was for your wife. Every other female got screwed.

Well, that failed miserably, didn't it? Lol.
But let me take this further. You've always said "Anyone can teach, anyone can learn." LERN's goal used to be to promote continuing education, of any kind. But now it seems to be that the view is continuing education is only valid, or recognized if taught by "approved" institutions. Like UC Berkley. The birth place of free speech, where a mere few weeks ago shutdown free speech because it didn't agree with their point to view. Perhaps these classes are so popular because students are sick and tired of trying to learn, and expand their knowledge and critical thinking,without being indoctrinated by the far left. And who cares if someone is making a profit off a class? Universities have been doing that for years. To line the pockets of the administrators and tenured professors. Just because a company is registered as a "non-profit", doesn't mean they actually operate that way. You know, similar to how LERN operates.
Interesting that you bash Ed2Go and Centage now, while LERN profited off them for a good 20 years. And if my memory serves me correctly, their founder served on the LERN Board of directors at one point.
Interesting that employees of LERN were never given a cost of living wage increase in the 28 years of employment there. 1% was the normal, If that. Most years it was a nominal bonus, that was taxed so high you might as well have sent a card that said we donatated to the IRS on your behalf. Meanwhile the execs of LERN grew their salaries exponentially.
Neither one of your children have a 4 year degree. Does that make them worthless also?
How on earth is Bernie Sanders at 74 years old on the same page with Gen Y? He's 6 years older than Hillary. And if Gen Y doesn't want her, why would they want him? They are both out of touch with the populace and entrenched politicians, which is why neither is ahead in the polls. While Donald Trump is a loose cannon, the ONE thing he is not, is an entrenched politician which DOES speak volumes for his supporters and Gen Y as well. The American people are tired of the status quo. Even Gen Y. The Republican establishment is far from backing Donald Trump. There is still talk of a brokered convention. Your assertion that they are backing him is laughable. Donald Trump is the last person the Republican establishment wants elected, because they are as scared of him as the Democrats are. Gen Y for the most part, won't even bother to vote. They'd have to actually exert some effort to do so, something most of them don't possess. Unless they decide to vote for free everything, because they're not intelligent enough to figure out that free everything means they will be paying for free everything, since the Baby Boomers are all about to retire.

Lol. City slickers call them baby horses. Country folks call them colts and fillys.

Elders in both parties dismiss Gen Y because they have zero political sense. They have zero work ethic,and want free, free, free stuff and have zero realization on how their "free stuff" will get paid for. They are already p*ssed off because FICA takes so much out of their paychecks. But they'll blindly vote for Bernie because he promises "free stuff" yet they don't comprehend that free stuff will increase their payroll deductions by 35% It's really sad Gen Y doesn't understand basic economics

And yet they're all going broke. That's works...Not.

Embraced by everyone who hasn't taken a basic economics course. Because everyone that has,realizes his policies are nothing more than a pipe dream.

The get rich for-profit sector. That's rich, pardon the pun. How about the get rich non-profit sector? You know, the one where you don't give your employees raises, but you take them, and cite "financial reasons" while your non-profit makes a $50,000-$200,000 profit a year. And then you let employees go citing "financial reasons" and then less than a month later you take your whole staff (What's left of them) to Floria for a staff retreat on the beach. But you're set for life right? With your $500/month rent payments that are never recorded as income, your $500/month retirement contribtions in addition to regular retirement contribtions. Oh, and let's not forget the company paid life insurance policies that only benefit your wife. But those little details are not reported to the BOD, they're just buried in a Financial statement no Board member dare question, or they're off the BOD. Some day, you'll have to answer to your maker on how you treated people, how you lied and stole, and how you climbed on employees backs to get you where you are. I hope it was worth it. And yet you profess yourself to be a Democrat/Progessive. The Bush's would be proud of you.
Who changes the oil in your car? Who replaces your flat tires? Who repairs your car? Mechanical or auto body? Who hooks up your cable or intent connection? Who services the busses or trains you ride? Who restores your power when your elictricity goes down? Who holds the door at the posh hotel you check into, or checks your bags at the hotel, or checks you into that hotel? Who serves you that gormet dinner you ordered? Who cleans your hotel room? Who drives your taxi or limo to the airport? Who sold you that last suit? Who delivered your last FedEx or UPS package? Who does your snow removal or your lawn mowing? Who sold you your purchase at the hardware store, or Menards, or Home Depot? Who sold you that book at Barnes and Noble? Or your coffee at Starbucks? Who checked you out at the grocery store, or bagged your groceries? Who read your electric meter or gas meter this month? Who plowed the snow from your street this week? Who played in the band you bought a ticket to watch last week? Who assembled that synthesizer the band used? Who changed your printer cartidge last week? (because you can't) Hypocrisy is thy name. People matter. Whether they have a formal education or not. Trades are learned. Indoctocation is not required.

So, then what you're really saying is Gen Y is stupid. Because it's absolutely stupid to be paying your landlords mortgage payment instead of paying your own mortgage payment and investing 1/2 of every payment in your personal assets. Wow, we are doomed as a nation if that's the mentality of the young.
Well you pretty much did stereoptype the Boomers that worked for you for years on end, when you fired 6 of them within a year without reason - except of course, your wife. But let's not talk about that. Gen X & Y are so cool!
If you have no highway structure, how will farm crops get to market? Farmers have to drive harvests to market, co-ops or trains for transportation to the rest of the US. If taxpayers won't pay for highway infrastructure, how do they plan to buy groceries?
