While the education system is dumbing down the youth and creating one trick ponies like AAmech,this is the future.

A microbiologist can have all the knowledge in the world about his feild,but if he doesnt feel like typing out word word,or waisting his time explaining the details of microbiology to someone who doesnt understand it,does it take away from his knowledge if he simply copy/paste information he already knows? No.It saves time/energy and is quicker on a forum like this. Some of you mofos can type 3000 words per minute,so you can run your dick beaters on the type writter all day talking out the side of your neck. It doesnt ake you any ore knowledgable about a subject.

Experience trumps education 10 fold. But, many companies won't talk to you unless you already have experience, or the degree.

The main ebenfits to college, in my opinion, mainly involve learning how to act like an adult, and network as a professional.

Everything you actually "learn", or need to know, you can learn much faster on the job itself and from free internet resources.

So, although I am thankful for my college experience, frankly, I would have to agree that it is a scam, UNLESS you plan to pursue a masters or Ph.d.

A lot depends on whether you see knowledge or education is simply "job training."

No big deal about what I said. I'm in the Cooks now. Believe what you want.It was a good way to spend time with my niece.She loved "Lord of the Rings" so it made sense to go there. I work for an airline of course I'm going to use the travel benefits. I'm not stupid. If you think I'm trying to impress you must be from the hood and not familiar with upper income. Can tell what type of area you live by your responses.
My girlfriend,family,friends,neig hbors,etc. I know are more my equal and not impressed about anything.
Everyone I know it's normal to take a few days or weeks vacation.A group of my neighbors are planning a canal cruise through Europe in two month and I say good for them.Half the people in this area have summer homes somewhere.
Just a normal life style in the area I live.
I see that the weather is in the 70s at home. Next weekend I will be planting a Dynamite crepe myrtle tree and installing plywood floor in my garage attic.....my niece will be back in school.
Paid off my home last year so I'm going to take a refresher course in coastal navigation next month. Want to get back to charter again.
Just living my life. Really no big deal and doesn't impress anyone in my circles.
It is what it is. If it bothers you go back to school,focus,get a better job or whatever and you will understand and not be so bitter.

Seriously,let go of whatever mistakes you've made concerning this college scam thing and move on.

I'm just a black guy who got an education,Skill/Trade. Decided not to get married,no bastard kids,use common sense and know how to handle my finances.
Life is good.

Good luck!

Like flight attendants (but not for $40,000 like flight attendants), many of the TWU-represented employees can take an early-out option. According to numbers out of TWU, 633 mechanics and relates employees and maintenance stock clerks had put in for the early-out option as of Friday morning



In nine years, the mechanics' wages and benefits were cut by 25 percent.

Minorities and the poor have to take a few avenues. One, if there is an opportunity to have stability, go for it; military, college, etc... But, never live off of someone if you are not working toward independence. Never borrow or get into debt if you can avoid it. Debt kills all people but especially minorities. As soon as reach your goal, teach others, volunteer your time. But, do not loan money. Most people are bad investments unless they demonstrate characteristics of success. And, if they did, they would not borrow. Pay it forward.

Yeah a lot of people got hurt by the pay cut back then but has since adapted Company allowed employees to work second job if they wished. There were way too many living beyond their means back then. There were employees living and spending high on raises they haven't ever received yet. Hard lesson learned I hope.

None of what happened affected me but the ability to contribute more to my 401k but continued to save and invest. I've stayed above 15% in 401k contributions though. I was prepared and lived on 1/3 my income anyway. I knew the TWU wasn't going to look after me.

Now we have the TWU,Teamsters,Amfa,and AIM after us because of this merger. Three more years and I won't be dealing with all of this union stuff anymore.

What's strange is I'm making more in the past 5 years than I ever had. According to the after freeze pension formula on jetnet I will get $2700/mo for retirement. And who ever contributed to the company 401k/Roth401k/SDA years before this 5.5% match began in November is a very happy camper.

Like President Obama Said..........Black men stop wh*ring and take care of your women, children and communities!

Surely if Obama thrives as a Black President surely Black men do can do for their own! After all if didn't waste so much time chasing WW Sex (Pu**y) maybe you would have something!

BLACK MEN WASTE TOO MUCH TIME CHASING SEX AND WOMEN FOR ATTENTION OVER MORE IMPORTANT THINGS IN LIFE LIKE EDUCATION, RAISING YOUR CHILDREN, MENTORING, CHANGING YOUR COMMUNITIES!

Thats why your on the bottom of the food chain! Black men need to change their plight! Black women have helped you but you spit in their races by saying other race of women are better after Black women raised you alone without any Fathers!

Your Fathers were too busy chasing WW or SEX to care about you and your well being!

Just like your Father didn't do a damn thing for you! All of your responses and actions show you didn't have a Father or any male relatives to teach you how to be a man!

Otherwise, you wouldn't be "Whining on forum boards bashing young IR BW who are 30 years younger than you! Especially when you PUT WHITE MEN/WOMEN FIRST IN YOUR LIFE!

Stop being a hypocrite and grow up! YOur almost 60 years and you look foolish!

you know whats funny take someone like Capn Black he is on here dropping crazy knowledge and no one is getting it. I would suggest people watch to movie Matrix again and again. Things are not what they appear and as our society changes one will need a host of skills for survival. they don't teach these skills in school.

BE like MalcolmX, Fred Douglass, Richard Wright

If you don't go to college be like Maloclm X, Richard Wright and others. They became well informed, vastly well read, and mentally astute through consistent STUDY.
Read Wright's BLACK BOY, Malcolm's AUTOBIOGRAPHY, or THE LIFE AND TIMES OF FREDERICK DOUGLASS if you're not familar with my references.
In fact, it is good to be like them--students of the world--whether you go to college or not.

Yes, there's nothing that says that an individual cannot or should not take up reading on his/her own. Of course, too many of us have short attention spans and treat any unrequired reading as though it was a homework assignment.
