Well that's certainly something they can't deny seeing as how they are always bragging about how the majority hold a degree. I guess it stands to reason that they are also responsible for the ongoing unpaid student loans that has been growing for decades. Too bad the education system didn't require everyone to take a course in common sense.

A college degree doesn't mean one is intelligent, just knowledgeable in a particular useless subject. Something anyone can on their own time if they read up and study it. I have a friend that was brilliant in the IT industry, but had a strong interest in natural healing. He is self-taught and he probably knows more about it that your average college graduate. He opened his own clinic, doing quite well I may add with a very high success rate. There was a lot he had to learn that involves the medical field. He deals with people at the top of the field (who are college graduates) and can go one on one with the best.

Too bad the Tea Party types didnt take a class in economics before trying to bankrupt the country in the intensive care units in their last days of their lives. We spend 50 billion a year keeping seniors alive for the last 30 days of their lives and thats now the Republican Base. Oh yeah you love Sarah Palin....you guys are a bunch of hypocrites taking the country down.

LOL. There you go again. Making claims that you can't back up - about me, especially since you don't know a damn thing about me, yet it's staring you right in the face when you read my posts. I'll let you figure that out for yourself.

Good for your friend, sounds like he had a great plan, stuck to it, and now succeeding at it.

Keeping seniors alive? Yes, this is an example of liberal compassion. It's barely 2 months old and liberals are already railing against the old. Just think, people can rise up and support a politician who will campaign on killing off the elders. Just imagine the control that a politician can have with Obamacare.

Seems to me Reid and Pelosi are young chickens.

Reality is that if you're a conservative who scoffs at higher eduation, then you're very likely going to be working a McJob for peanuts. If you think that's smart, have at it. There are not that many Steve Jobs out there in the world.

I can't debate nonsense. That stuff only makes sense if you are a true believer in some insane conspiracy theory.

It was his second attempt. The first one didn't work out. He enhanced, broadened and had the support of a great wife!!! Actually this is his 3rd career and he's not even 50. It helps to have the support of someone and it was stressful for her, but she believed in him and he believed in what he was pursuing. Where there is a will, there is a way.
