This would be a good thread to talk about college education and real education.

I'll start...

Agree...although those kinds of degrees can be very interesting.

Just before I retired I worked with a young lady who got a degree in forensic anthropology. She was washing cars for the company cause she couldn't find a job in her field.

You get an A. But don't get cocky! :rolleyes:

Here's an interesting one...

Never mind that much of "education" is liberal disinformation spread by liberal Academics.


And that without common sense, education is rather useless,.


Can anyone cite one single liberal on the board who has common sense? :\

You make a good point...and yes, I can cite one liberal.

AL is my favorite liberal here because she has an open mind and flexibility. In fact, she may be the only true liberal here.

She's what I would call a logical liberal. We don't always agree, but that's OK.

Nobody agrees all the time.

Higher Education is worth while for many, and an accomplishment that deserves noting.

If you insist on buying a job, at least be smart enough to cash flow it and graduate debt free from school loans. :rofl: 8edge falls in that category!

It's a shame the lives that get destroyed by crushing student loan debt.

Agreed...an education is a good thing.

But college educations are also a scam on the unsuspecting. Some students think that once they get an education everything will turn up roses.


P.S. When I was in electronics school I heard something from one of my teachers. The real learning starts when you leave school and get a job.

I don't understand why some Conservatives are always bashing education.

You don't need to be highly educated to be financially successful but, if you want to go into a certain field like science or medicine you need to be educated in that subject.

My Godfather was one of the smartest people I ever knew and he never made it past 6th grade.
But he educated himself by reading voraciously.

Still amazes me students are not ready for reality, that thing called life and what it takes to pay the bills. More stress should be placed on the financial aspects of being an adult in the teenage years. A Dave Ramsey approach (minus the god part) drilled into their thick heads for a minimum of 3 years!

My parents pushed my ass out the door at 18 and told me I would figure it out. Best thing they could have done.

By scam, I would say paying $70k for a $35k salary is a scam. The idea everyone needs to go to college is also a part of the ruse.

Not bashing Misty...being realistic about the bigger picture.


Review the earlier videos and you see some leftists saying the same thing.


Now stop knee jerking and go to your room. :sleep:

One of the bands I played in did the Politician...our bass player thought he was being cool or something by picking it, but I cringed over the thought. It was a bad choice, and I knew it.

Sure enough...half way through the song people starting getting up and walking out. It had nothing to do with politics mind you.

It's just that the song sucks!

30% of the people in college today SHOULD be in college today. people go to college to get a job, WHO WANTS A FUCKING JOB? college should be setting people up to be business owners...we got enough employees in this fucking country. the thing about a degree is that the more common it becomes the less fruitful it becomes. universities need to stop it with the fucking left wing indoctrination and get the fuck on with educating kids...currently universities are retarding kids mentally and financially.....the left wing professors need jailed for what they are doing to the nation and its children
