    This is an interesting read: https://www.yahoo.com/news/navy-overhaul-education-system-us-061508610.html    Will this improve or hurt the US Navy?

    The US education system is clearly failing the US Navy and therefore also the US, so now the USN thinks it can do better... will be interesting to see how well they manage to spend smarter instead of spending more... in most other areas... new aircraft carriers, new destroyers, new frigates, new subs they really don't have a great track record... the real question I would ask is WTF have they been doing... they already have military colleges like west point... I would think they would be using such institutions to teach and prepare their personnel as they go up the ranks... isn't that what they used to do?

    What they are basically saying is that they aren't effective at recruiting in your average or better than average US tertiary provider so they are going to have to make their own tertiary providers where the students learn for free but owe a debt to the navy which the navy can exploit to get career sailors... which in english translates to not so many people going to normal college want to join the military because their huge student loans take too long to pay off at their wages... and also society is heading away from a huge middle class and a small upper class and small lower class to a huge lower class... upper class want kids in the military for prestige only... to restrictive... they can't holiday any time they want, the middle class... mommy and daddy could pay their student fees so shnukums can go to college without a student loan over their heads, but the lower class looked for scholarships or the military to pay their way to college... with a much bigger lower class mortgaged up to the eyeballs and in no condition to support their kids at college those kids are going to have to find another way to pay their way through... a way that wont get them sent to Afghanistan...

    The corruption and rot in the USA has been whitewashed by the fake stream media for too long. We are seeing the chickens come home
    to roost in the yanqui laissez-faire exceptional utopia. A system built on f*cking everyone over (including the rest of the world) eventually
    eats itself. There is clear evidence that US elites and deciders are just as dumbed down as the proles. Apparently, it is a bit too hard to
    dumb down the proles and live on some astral plane of superior education and IQ in full immunity. This is something that will have to be researched
    at some stage.
