80 degrees by Sunday? Maybe you better quit getting your forecasts from those taxpayer funded scientists of yours:
http://fox8.com/weather/
It is now 70 degrees which is 17 degrees above our "normal" high. How many weeks have we spent this season with 17 degrees below the normal high this season? Lets' see, one day above normal, 50 days below normal. You're right, it's global warming.
I had Mexican last night.

I farted.....sorry.

Would you prefer I keep it in and we return to a foot of snow?

I was going to go back tonight and order a double side of beans.

So, after making the argument that the people are primarily driven by money in their job search, and maintaining that they would rather work in a steel mill rather than be a pharmacist because the money is better...now you are telling me that YOU were willing to work for less money because you prefer the working environment of a smaller company?
I prefer it, but the other side of that coin is the government will not allow me to work for a larger company where the real money is.

My nephew graduated college with a Masters a few years ago. My niece will graduate this year. My sister and ex brother-in-law are strapped with college loans they will have to repay until past their retirement. My niece and nephew will be strapped with their loans for many years to come.

When one figures out what kind of money they can make with a college education, and then subtracts all the loans they have to repay, all the years they spent in college forfeiting full-time pay, it really makes a person wonder if college is the investment of a lifetime. How many years does it take for a college graduate to break even?

I'm sure this is on the minds of our youngsters today. If you get a job at Fed-Ex, they train you for a few weeks and you're working for a lifetime. In many fields such as medical or technical, people continue their education for the rest of their lives. They have to be retrained on the newest developments coming out.

no malice intended.

just correcting your figures was all.

very tired of the 5 year lying spree, and fully intend to end the madness sooner than later.

Absolutely will not let the loony left off the hook like happened in 2012.

Expect a collage of lies played continually on TV reminding America what they were duped into voting for.

Enjoy the nice evening, and take a stroll to get some fresh air in those lungs.

what I will add is college was just a key to unlock doors for me.

The rest was up to me, or doors closed.

a college education over a average life will pay over a million dollars more than a HS diploma.

everyone is not college material and can make above statement foolish....like Bill Gates as example or Steve Jobs. Also plenty of people who started businesses and worked hard growing them.

College shows an employer you can follow directions and be trained. Also college developed critical thinking skills necessary to add value in business.

An individual who earns a degree who feels they are entitled to earning more money than a HS grad usually is unemployed.

bottom line......if it is to be it is up to me.

I agree that the loans folk take out will burden them for a long time. My alimony exceeded tuition at an Ivy league university, and I took no loan. It also had me living very uncomfortable making 5 figure monthly payment for 7 years. Now that the end is just a few months away I can save 5 figures monthly.

tell the kids not to get married unless they are positive it is real. Failure here is much more painful than any student loan.

Do you really expect a lowly trucker to understand the value of education?
His "career" involves peeing into empty bottles and driving in a straight line during week-long meth binges. We could train circus monkeys to do his job. It's not like he's a rocket scientist or something. LOL

I pretty much agree. BUT IF some did not go into (incredible ) debt, there would be a good number of needed positions not filled. Largely in the medical fields.
The CRIME is what establishments of higher learning keep charging!!
A son of mine chose a particular college largely for it's reputation in his field & largely because of it's class sizes. From his 3rd to his 4th year, class sizes doubled & tuition went up a double digit percent. WHY? Seemingly to enlarge the campus & increase enrollment for more money.
Tuition does NOT need to be so F'ing high semester after semester.

Why do you continue to denigrate truckers? They move EVERYTHING that you need or want.
I didn't go to college because I didn't have enough self control to study for it even tho I have a respectable IQ.
I have 3 grown sons. One is an awesome mechanic, everything from weed eaters to Freight Liner trucks. Can YOU repair your own car?Another has been in the Navy for 10 1/2 yrs with 3 1/2 to go on this enlistment keeping air craft flying. Can YOU weld aircraft alloys or service an engine in a jet capable of MACH flight or a helicopter that rescues down pilots, or lands Marines on a beach? My 3rd son is studying towards a PHD to be a Psycologist. Can you help someone professionally to conquer drugs or keep a marriage together or help youngsters of divorced parents?
So just quit insulting others! You insult yourself.

Agreed. My nephew and his wife are renting an apartment from my father who gave them an extremely low rental price. Without my father, I don't know what those kids would be doing today. Both are working but both are paying their school loans back. They are watching every dime as if they both worked at McDonalds or something.

I heard on the radio that colleges are the highest profit business in the US today. I never checked into it, but I almost believe it.

When you meet Jesus he will remind you to keep your arms inside the elevator while traveling to the bowels of hell. Wonder if Jesus will have your car special painted with a crow on the side.
That Jesus! What a prankster.

At least I work. Can you say the same?

We are all aware of your education. It's on display with each and every one of your posts.

I'm on a medical restriction. I can't get all my endorsements and all major trucking lines require their employees to be fully endorsed. If the government would allow me to drive being fully endorsed, I probably would have had a much better job years ago.

You need to adjust the amount that you make up to tell people about your income. With your minimum $120,000 annually in spousal support, your $40,000 annually in vacations, your tens of thousands annually in boat related expenses, and your pink truck and your race car and your Italian shoes and all that other stuff, there is no way you are getting by on the .5% commission on $10 million you claim to make. Just trying to help out a little.

So far their marriage is working out very well. They want children but of course, not financially ready yet. Lord knows if they will ever be.

I never said college was not a great thing, just in comparison to the cost. Several years ago I read that doctors who borrowed all their money for their education are not out of debt until the age of 40. That's over half of your life in school or paying for it. No wonder they charge what they charge.

That's outstanding. The fat, diabetic, smoker who is on medical restriction so he doesn't kill people in his truck blames the government for his situation. Classic right wing personal responsibility.

Totally non-constructive! Can't you post something that is NOT MEAN or angry. Something constructive, something pragmatic, something that addresses the topic instead of something personal?
Your lack of legitable argument shows your lack of intellect, your lack of substance, your lack research or ability to research.
WHY do you make personal attacks? I know, I know, you do NOT have adequate counterpoints.
I would NOT bet that your parents are proud. OR in your case does the seed not fall far from the tree? One or the other.
