By Ross Elliott, published 14/9/2017

Education is one of the fastest growing industries in Australia, soon to reach number four spot as an employer ahead of the traditional retail employment machine.

Dumbed-down and Mickey Mouse degrees offer backdoor immigration; and, what about the huge HECS fees incurred by locals, who leave them to taxpayers to take care of? The whole, over-protected tertiary education system should be pared down to provide qualifications for those wishing to enter professions really needing expert knowledge. TAFE colleges are adequate for most careers, and our resources should never be used to educate foreigners.

No they're not holding back our education export potential!
Just brain calcified, dumb pollies?

When we had a robust manufacturing industry, education was a human right and a service, not an industry competing for, money grubbed export dollars!

And proposed by folk who likely benefitted from the Whitlam reform and free tertiary ed!

We can't affordably house the folk we have here now?

Yet untroubled airheads want to jam more folk into our already overcrowded gridlocked capital cities, to fleece them of scarce foreign exchange?

One of who got a job as a waiter, in a cousin's restaurant?

Then spent months learning to correctly say, fried rice. Only to be confronted by a drunken yobbo and his boozy friends. Whereapon, yobbo thought it would be humor, when he asked for, three bowls of flied lice.

Our little asian friend nodded politely, hurried away, returning almost immediately with three steaming bowls of buck bo fan. Which yobbo and co hurled down with lip smacking gusto. Only to realize, they'd not had any rice?

Three bows of flied lice, cried the chortling yobbo having the time of his pea brain life. While adding significantly to the finacial returns for the evening.

Wherapon the waiter disappeared, returning promptly with three bowls of wonton soup. Which cretins one, two and three promptly destroyed.

Then realizing he still hadn't had any rice, giggling gerty repeated. Flee bowls of flied lice! Whereapon the waiter having had his fill. Enquired, what's the matter you, can't you say fried rice, you plick?

Drug test them and confiscate 80% of their HECS fees, to be used to pay power bills of the poor and build affordable housing!
