Exactly. My late uncle was a very smart guy. All A's in college and his military training was a plus. He ended up dying as a janitor with not a dime to his name. First the drinking, then the gambling, and he finally did odd jobs until he landed the full time janitor job.
In my field of work, we have our share of college graduates. They were smart enough to go through college, but not smart enough to choose a career where there was a lot of employment. That's what I mean when I point out the difference between logic and education. You can't teach logic in school. You either have it or you don't. And what I've found from experience is that college boys make terrible truck drivers. Truck driving involves some education, but to be good at it, it mostly requires common sense.
I wonder how many of those super intelligent and super educated college graduates could pass the written CDL test, let alone the driving part. As when I pass a church or a semi, I always say a small prayer of thank you. It's a realistic indication of how well the economy is doing by the amount of trucks on the road. Thank God for truck drivers. Thank God for many other supposed blue collar workers also. It amuses me when the snot nose college grads make snotty comments and insults against the very people that made our once great country once great.
Some huge and popular corporations are now requiring tests instead of GPA and degrees when considering hiring someone. Harvard and the like, have let their primarily liberal professors, doom this country. Most don't even know the difference between a solvent and an acid, wet sanding or dry sanding. They are mostly a bunch of "whack em pack em" unidentifiable genders.

When you are seriously ill, do you go to a medical doctor that has lots of "book learning", or do you go to an uneducated person who has lots of "common sense"?

On behalf of all truck drivers, I thank you for your prayers. We need them because truck driving is one of the ten most deadliest jobs in America.

Your comment reminds me of my nephew. He graduated with a Masters and has a great job. But he couldn't hammer two boards together if his life depended on it. LOL! He's a great kid and we're more like friends than relatives, so I raz him about it all the time.

Certain people are geared towards certain things I guess. Like my father, I couldn't stand to work inside. I've done it a few times and hated it. The only job I liked working inside was when I was teaching music at the music store. I enjoyed that although it was only part-time.

I found the same thing with teaching. For some reason or another, the students who were obsessed with sports had no ability to play a musical instrument. They tried, and I know when a student is practicing because his strings would be out of tune by the next lesson. They simply didn't have what it took no matter how much I tried to teach them. When my boss sent me a new student and he came into the studio with sports gear on talking about the Indians or Browns, I knew that kid stood no chance at ever being a musician.

On that note (no pun intended), I couldn't tell you about one football play or basketball move. It just doesn't interest me. I guess that's why I'm on Topix discussing politics.

. Hey now- I think your spot on in judging POP's on his kool aid opinion of Obama! Everyone should have respect for our President regardless of their politics! I feel his color is a major fault for many, so they use the Fox News "kool aid", as a sheep follower opinion! POP's is the type that waits for the polls to decide, before he votes, IF, he even votes! Most truck drivers don't, they just jaw! Obama is probably the best educated president the country has had! Opinion's are like butts, everyone has one!

I am glad you brought the subject up. I could tell you a bunch about medical doctors but will save you all the details. I chose one with common sense.

If you would like to talk about the government or the congress or judges or prosecutors or the law I will be glad to join in.

Let me ask you again: when you are sick, do you go to someone who was educated in medical school? Do you think that education made them a better doctor?

You are able to read my words because someone taught you to read. Did that education make you a better person?

Or do you really think that all education is pointless?

It is weird how you think or believe that an education makes a better person. I disagree; it is the person who makes a better person not his education. There a good doctors, carpenters, teachers, etc and there are those that are bad: just like there are bad truck drivers (no pun intended).

I had more education after school than while in school. So that education to me was pointless.

Here is some interesting reading as Danny Bubp wants to be a judge in Brown County, Ohio.

We don't need him. Wonder what other government office he is going to have while being a judge.

IF they don't need to write a prescription, I would go to the one with common sense.
Personally I have been to 3 PHD/MD's for an issue of which they have about 25-30% agreement as to condition & treatment which leaves a lot of space for disagreement.
Personally, I have 2 sisters that are RN's & some of these doctors that they talk about should be sued, fired & cooked over a charcoal grill, BUT they got their M.D.'s which means a lot, on paper.
I have had a DOCTOR in an O.R. that diagnosed a hand injury as a 'sprain' & treated me with an Ace Bandage for 6 weeks but the injury was in fact a BROKEN BONE that NEVER healed being treated as a sprain & is still broken to this day which has lead to very avoidable arthritis.
So from MY experience, YOU & your argument can kiss my butt.
The primary reason to go to a "medical doctor" with 'book learning' is procedure/insurance reasons.

1st, I respect the office of president of the United States. Next; that does NOT mean that the person in that office deserves that respect that the position warrants.
2nd Being a president is what the kool ade drinkers rely on. That does NOT mean that the pres is NOT a brain or jackass.
In our current situation, the person occupying the office of president is a total jackass. Many zoo's in the world would love his DNA to perpetuate the species.
Personally, that species can become extinct & we would ALL be better off.
To briefly clarify...Obama is a witless, butt kissing, them or us idiot. With IDIOT being the key word

You mean like less jobs, higher unemployment rate than the rest of the country, an 8 billion dollar debt? Is that what you consider "get on with our own?"

Sorry, but I like the way things are going now in Ohio. A smaller unemployment rate than the rest of the country, slimmed down spending and thus, an eliminated debt, more companies and corporations considering out state for new business, and current businesses deciding to stay in Ohio rather than leave for higher grounds.

But why would we want that--right? Let's go back to the way things were before Kasich.

Debt means no money. Debt likely means stressed credit. Debt means failure. Why any fool would elect failure over success is really beyond my ability to understand.

Maybe what we have is "a failure to communicate." I'm not saying that education makes a person a better human being in general. I'm saying that education helps us to learn difficult, specific skills. I want major bridges to be designed by mechanical engineers, not some untrained person who has lots of "common sense." When I'm sick, I want to see a medical doctor (usually one who spent many years learning about the specific part of me that hurts.)

But I don't think these people are "better" in the sense that they are great human beings. I'm sure some are unpleasant in their private lives, and others are nice folks. Education doesn't change that. But they are "better" in a specific skill set that helps humanity. I respect them for the effort it took them to get there. It doesn't surprise me that they often get paid very well for what they do.

That's a much different perspective than I have where I respect anybody who works for a living and tries to better themselves be they a ditch digger or a rocket scientist. We live in a country of loafers promoted by your President. Those are the only people I look down on.

No wooboy it is not the ones you blame it is the Conservative points vs your Liberal points. The Liberals have the same category in their team. One would be Rafeal Madcow.
