Breaking news often takes me back to the good old
days when I too was a delusional college student.
This week, it was Keely Mullen’s interview
with Neil Cavuto on Fox Business News.
Ms. Mullen is both the poster child for
Marxist indoctrination and an organizer for the
Million Student March.
Launching a national day of action she
demanded free tuition, cancellation of all student
debt and $15 per hour for all campus employees.
it is not greedy for her to covet your stuff, but it
is greedy for you to keep it for yourself.
Progressives are truly thieves.
Keely is a political science / sociology
major, so her wake-up call will come after
graduation when she learns she has wasted the last
eight years of her life earning a virtually

call came when I learned the world does not holiday
on the semester system.
Let me explain.
Thanksgiving break from 1975 through 1978 were the
greatest holidays of my life.
Because most colleges cancel classes
beginning the Wednesday before Thanksgiving,
skipping school Monday and Tuesday gave me a
nine-day, holiday vacation.
Even if we were shipping calves over the
break, it still left eight days to harvest pheasants

university and racking shell after shell through my
After Thanksgiving, there were only about ten days
of classes before finals week and then I was home
for the five-week Christmas break.
December was waterfowl season and with most
ponds frozen solid, the warm springs feeding Pass

harvest was nearly guaranteed to any hunter who
could point the barrel and pull the trigger.
January, February and March could be long

were it not for the anticipation of spring and
Easter breaks; two more week-long holidays.
My brief encounters with cable television
taught me most college students frolic beachside
over spring break, but we ranch kids night-calved
and went coyote hunting.
Coyote hides were in high demand in the late
‘70s, but I do not recall ever exchanging one for
anything of value mostly because our harvest rate
was near nil.
Regardless, the excitement carried us through
studies until the first week of May when finals
signaled the end of the academic year.
Then, after a three-month summer break in the
hay fields, academia begins again and the holiday
cycle repeats itself.
Yep, it is great being a delusional college
student, but eventually reality reveals everything
you assumed, or were taught to be true, just isn’t
so and this brings me to my point.
Ms. Keely Mullen will be shocked when reality
teaches her there is no free and all the goodies she
lobbied for have been added to our national debt.
Ultimately, the burden for her free stuff
will be borne by Ms. Mullen herself, her children
