Far too many young people are spending far too much money and incurring far too much debt to obtain worthless college degrees from third-rate colleges.
Community colleges are a prime example, granting absolutely worthless degrees.
We have created a society where most waitresses have college degrees, because they have no skills and cannot find a job that requires their "education."
The idea that a college degree is essential is absurd, when skilled trades earn far more than many college graduates.
Academia has long had the ear of Congress and this Socialist Magic Negro and so the game plays on about how a college education is the key to everything....

But I have known so many degree-laden jerks who wouldn't know how to change the newspaper in a bird-cage that it has become obvious that something here is very wrong.

The Liberal Media, the racist NAACP and the Boy Messiah all want us to feel sorry for those 'graduates' who now owe $150 grand and can't pay it off. Jerks like Dennis Kucinich want our Socialist government to forgive all college debt - and then what? Free Education would then cause universities and colleges to become worthless paper mills - more-so than they are right now.

Industries are increasingly hiring college graduates from outside this country like from India, Pakistan, China..because those graduates kick-ass.

Chasing paper with handfuls of dollars given to a Liberal academia centers who then run to Congress to fund more students....is becoming a shameful waste of money.

David Johnson
Lieutenant Colonel
United States Army

Lieutenant Colonel David Johnson began his military career as a Cadet at West Point. Upon graduation and completion of Airborne, Ranger and Infantry training, he served in the Berlin Brigade and was commanding a rifle company on the Berlin Wall the night it fell.

During Summer and Fall 2004, Lieutenant Colonel Johnson was injured in an improvised explosive device (IED) strike on his vehicle in Ramadi and in a rocket-propelled grenade (RPG) attack in Fallujah. In 2009, he was injured by the blast of a suicide truck bomb in Kabul.

Lieutenant Colonel Johnson credits his recovery in part to the service work he does with Pointman Ministries and GallantFew. He is an active participant in Ride 2 Recovery's bicycling programs and is able to heal both physically and spiritually through the comradeship of men and women who share similar experiences and who also enjoy cycling.

After completing the United States Army War College, he will be medically retired from the Army and plans to continue his service by assisting veterans who are transitioning to civilian life.

Many people equate taking medication with getting better-as evidenced by the people of the United States, it isn't working.

All thanks to the Obama Administration. Republicans argued to slash funding to help American war veterans. In fact, republicans betrayed all of our U S veterans by defeating President Obama's Veterans with Disabilities Act."Forty Republican members of the United States Senate betrayed veterans today when they decided that denying President Obama a victory was more important than spending $1 billion to create jobs for vets.

The Veterans Job Corps Act of 2012 would have spent $1 billion over five years to put veterans to work tending to federal lands, and in the nation’s police and fire departments. Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA) based her plan of FDR’s Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC), but Republicans opposed the bill because they said there is no proof that it would work.

Republican Sen. Tom Coburn claimed that there is no evidence that jobs for vets will work,“What we have is a bill that’s brought to the floor that has good intentions behind but shows the absolute laziness of congress in terms of really digging things out. issued their duplication report on the job training programs for veterans, four of them do exactly the same thing. None of them have a metric. So we don’t know if they’re working, and we haven’t held a hearing to find out if they’re working. But what are we doing?”

It doesn’t matter to most Senate Republicans that the CCC put 2.5 million people to work. When confronted with an actual jobs program for America’s vets, including the 220,000 who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, the majority of Republicans claimed the plan, which was already offset, was too expensive.

Bush didn’t chose to retire in a lethargic swoon to lick his wounds, but continues to challenge himself – this time by learning to paint in oils. Mindlessly doodling a year ago opened the door to all this creativity and attention – and who’d have thought?

With encouragement from friends and family and inspiration from Winston Churchill (via his book “Painting as a Pastime”) GWB decided to give art a chance. Describing to the Dallas Morning News his “great delight in busting stereotypes,” Bush added that he studies privately with an artist and paints almost daily.

What does he have to lose after being leader of the free world, the complexities of post-9/11 and almost universal excoriation in the press? Bush has the kind of thick cowboy hide a fledging artist can find useful when facing critics … or their own insecurities. His art was brought to public without his permission when a hacker sent three years worth of family photos and email to various Internet sites.

Some art writers have become unexpected bedfellows and cheerleaders of this new manifestation of George W Bush.

here's another stat for you: do you want to pay for these drug addicted morons? "Experts say most of those prescriptions are unnecessary. The United States makes up only 4.6 percent of the world's population, but consumes 80 percent of its opioids -- and 99 percent of the world's hydrocodone, the opiate that is in Vicodin."

Opioids are essentially legal heroine-O'bama better keep that war going in Afghanistan so he can continue to feed his people on O'bamacare.

Ever wonder why insurance costs so much? because of the people-the people in the United States are druggies-sick, infected, mental case druggies.
