    Apples and oranges to the maximum degree. "Free housing" for prisoners? It`s called prison.

    But free money is sooo ubiquitous in education these days. My mother is an education counselor for a community college and has a plethora of these stories. One time, a 65 year old came in to get a Pell Grant for a class. The only problem is that people of that age can take classes for free in the state of Florida. He`s doing it so he can pocket the money, free money. It`s called being a leech.

    And Dzhokhar got plenty of free school money, even though he failed nearly every class. It happens all the time.

    A publicly funded system to a privately funded system...

    If anything, this makes an argument that education should be privatized.

    I was a student in college and had most of these things given to me. Awesome library, computer lab, three meals a day,etc. Granted, I paid for it all and am in horrendous debt right now...but I still had access to them.

    Oh goodie it`s one these posts! And OldOllie is already here, surely preparing to be as antagonistic and pigheaded as he can be. This will be fun!

    Andrew155- like any system there will be those who really abuse it yeah. But for me, a white girl who came from a single mother house hold with a mediocre income, there honestly wasn`t much money out there for me. Or maybe I didn`t know where to look since I have no idea how to use the system...I got a couple grants for not much at all, and the rest were loans. Point is, in short, every system is flawed in some way and will be abused by some, which is not fair to others.

    healthcare: stitches when you get in fights
    Internet: limited time on monitored and restricted websites
    Weight room: not a 24 hr fitness
    Cable television: I doubt it`s Cinemax in HD on a 50" led
    Sports programs: where fights happen (see 1)
    Degrees: lol I`m sure they jump right out the page on a resume
    Meals: slop
    Clothes: orange jumpsuit

    Actually if they wanted to make an absurd comparison it should be between the gifted and "differently-able."

    OldO please explain. I`m just wondering how what why. do you see this as some form of propaganda filled with falsehoods or do you have a valid point as to why this is "liberal stupidity"?

    I`m calling BS - every public school has free internet for students, has athletic facilities including a weight room, access to a library and free sports program. Secondly, incarcerated prisoners are WARDS OF THE STATE. School children have their housing, clothing, laundry, etc provided by their parents, as they are WARDS OF THEIR PARENTS. This is stupid and factually incorrect. Especially about the free sports programs and library!

    This is plainly retarded whichever way you look at it... Students have persnal freedoms and the ability to borrow and generate income.. Yes I am quite sure every inmate gets a personal cable tv and 3rd party employees to do their laundry..yes they get funding for a degree hence `rehabilitation`...making them a functioning part of society.

    Simple!
    Finish junior school, hold up local store. Get sent down for duration of college stay, come out educated, fit, debt-free. Change your name and move to another state.

    If you live in a first world country and your local schools don`t have libraries, computer labs, internet access or sports programs, then you might want to consider relocating.

    I wonder how much of the $28,570 they quote for the prisoners goes towards maintaining the facility and paying the wages that keeps these criminals locked up and away from normal society.

    Yet another glaring example that Oldollie has his head so far up his ass the brainwashing, he has endured, has him believing in anything with a right wing slant regardless of how ridiculous it is to normal people.

    Because there is no such thing as free healthcare.

    Why are people claiming that there are mistakes in this without defining them? No one likes to see the truth, especially when it isn`t pretty.

    Agent00Smith-"Why are people claiming that there are mistakes in this without defining them?"

    Why not just start with the fact that they are trying to create an equivalency where none exists?

    I could just as easily make a chart comparing `Average spending per Student` to `Average Spending for Jeep Tires` and it would be just as relevent.

    what did you expect when for-profit prisons are commonplace? They not only want you there, they want you there for as long as it takes you to become non-profitable.

    Correction, Female prison Hinseberg in Sweden:
    No internet access, no cable, no free sports program, no computer lab, no laundry service, no free housing (you are forced to work), no free dental care. Who make that bullpoo up anyway. Maybe it`s like that in MALE prisons in America or something.
