Nursing is a special case, but the same type of schools churn out education graduates who have little chance of obtaining a full-time job in most markets. In most states, these schools pre-date community colleges rather than evolving from them.
Half the students in community colleges are studying "criminal science" and end up as minimum wage mall security guards.

Construction estimators for major engineering firms are generally degreed engineers. Estimators for commercial construction maybe not.

Most community colleges are hopelessly out-of-date on training designers, who need skills far beyond mere computer manipulation.

You're only fooling yourself if you think there have been notable strides in strengthening the economy and job growth in the past four years. Obamacare is weighing it down.
Look at any one of these graphs from the Treasury Department and make that argument.

Dana Perino and Fox News aren't the liberal media.
Just since yesterday, sources from the NYT, ABC and CBS were posted to prove a liberal wrong and get them up to snuff. Even the liberal media knows some thing liberals on here don't know.

By the way, Auto-CAD is a low-level system not widely used by major firms and "CD ROM" has nothing to do with a career.

"cd rom". LOL. He's attacking your age, so let's discuss cd rom? Any major software developed today does not fit on "cd rom"...DVDs are used. Very few people buy music on "cd rom". Why buy the cow when you can have the milk for $1.29

If any clown wore a Bush mask, you'd be rooting for the bull.

So I'm not buyin' your indignation and "inciting violence" which IS bull.

Was Obama rodeo mask just a case of clowning around?
Question: If a black person wears a George W. Bush mask, is he racist? The next logical question answers the first: What if the clown wears a Bush mask at an event attended primarily by blacks and invites the crowd to cheer for the bulls?
This unlikely event would feel offensive for the same reasons the recent clown event did. The Missouri rodeo audience was mostly white and the masked man in the ring was depicting a black man. This changes everything we think about humor, about clowns and about good old-fashioned fun.
Just as N-jokes are no longer funny to almost anyone, placing a black man in the arena like an unarmed gladiator isn’t amusing. As much as we aspire to racial harmony, we have centuries of history to overcome, including the mob-inspired lynching of black men, and this is what so many saw in the clown skit. Memory conquers humor.
....I am the last person who would suggest that irreverence be censored or punished — or that clowns be sensitized. The excessively reverent are far scarier to me than those who would die laughing. Political satire is, in fact, a public service inasmuch as it channels aggression that otherwise might find bloody expression.
But a civil society should find reprehensible even mock violence against a president, especially one who belongs to a minority that was once targeted for state-sanctioned violence.

How else would you put a mask of O'bama on? as a white face. So stupid. He is a black man. A civil society is not what you or O'bama is about. You can't find enough whipped up lies about racism. But I give you idiots a blue star for trying.

No, it sounds like all black republicans educating other blacks who still don't get race is a political tool used by democrats.
And used by "useful idiots".
Ya mean the blacks the GOP is using as tools to try to show that they're not really racist?

Where was the violence and you have to gain respect to be disrespected. O'bama is a clown. A black clown.
