The bright new idea – one embraced by that commie from New England, that other commie from New England who tricked her college into thinking she was an Indian, and that firewater aficionado who lost the election – is “free college.”
Let’s set aside the fact that community college exists to give everyone the opportunity to get some higher education; today, it’s job is to occupy high school students for a few extra years by intermittently teaching them the things the incompetence of unionized teachers ensured they didn’t learn in public high schools. The “free college” idea offers those of us who have already paid for our own education the opportunity to pony up for someone else’s.

If we're gonna pay for someone else's education involuntarily, how about making it trade school? Industry needs the trades.
Mike Rowe's (the dirty jobs guy) is one of the few folks pushing for training folks in the trades.

A halfway decent machinist, electrician, plumber, welder, or carpenter is worth an infinite number of grievance studies graduates.
