    I was listening to the news on my way home the other day, and they were doing a segment on an obama speech, and obama wanting to start a program to teach 10,000 new Engineers a Year. I have ponder this since I heard it. Where does he plan to place all those new engineers? There will have to be enough new jobs for these highly trained people to have work. The you must have someone with the need to start a new project Then you must have new contractions jobs and people to do the job.
    I just think he's scared and blowing smoking up his followers ass.

    Having worked as an Engineer for over 30 years I can tell you a large percentage of our engineers come from overseas. Americans are too stupid and too lazy to become engineers. The jobs are there....always have been

    Look at what college graduates are getting jobs

    You have no idea whay engineers do

    There are well over 10,000 recent engineering grads who find jobs. The problem is that a good percentage of those grads are foreign

    Americans are too stupid and lazy to graduate in Engineering

    Nothing against foreign engineers. They are well educated and well motivated. They do a very good job. Problem is that Americans are poorly prepared for engineering when they graduate HS

    They should train 10,000 Sanitation Engineers and when they have become well-trained, take them to Washington to get the shit out of that town.

    Too stupid and lazy?

    No, I'd say primary education simply isn't preparing kids for technical professions.

    And that's not the kids' fault, it's the education system's.

    Perhaps if we spent a little less time handing out participation medals and a little more time teaching math and science...?
