A recent study has determined that a majority of college undergrads are complete morons.

Part of the problem is that we want to send too many kids to college where they dont belong

hate the best and brightest if you will, because they often come from wealthy families, but they make the best leaders

Like we need or want more factory workers making $20 an hour and living in poverty. Yeah that's the life to aspire to. Just what the corporatists and business owners want....cheap labor.

We have people living in poverty with useless college degrees that cost them six figures....That make you feel any better?

Both sides say the other side is racist.

Both are in America. Surely, there's posts by the OP calling dems racists.

The article is all about people being morons because they say America is racist.

Politics is retarded.

Further, Donald trump offered ice cube reparations...$40billion dollars, to be exact...within his $500billion dollar plan.

Whoooops

Skilled blue collar workers may start at $20 but they often make much more in time

however, how many unemployed welfare bums are making more than $20 an hour sitting on their backsides now?

so factory jobs do have value

Duh. That’s why I keep saying I would never hire a recent college grad.
I'll say it again. When I was a kid, most people didn't have or need a college degree. You went to college to be a doctor, lawyer, scientist, some highly skilled specialist. Now you need a college degree to get a job as an office clerk.

College doesn't raise your IQ. It doesn't make you smarter. They say it prepares you for the world but what they are really saying is that it gives them time to PROGRAM you for the world. At best, it gives you special training for a technical field you want to work in.

WHAT HAS CHANGED OVER THE YEARS is that they used to prepare you for the world by the end of high school. Now to make room for all of the social engineering, that takes until college. To put it another way, IT NOW TAKES A COLLEGE DEGREE to get as much education as you used to get in high school. I went to a private high school and to a university to get two degrees, but I routinely meet college grads now fresh from college who don't know as much or have the common sense I had back in HIGH SCHOOL!

An old person with a high school diploma probably has a better education than a young kid today with a degree. We used to learn Latin, used trig tables and did math with slide rules and paper. Today's college grad can't do any of that and is lost without a calc.

Bullshit!
Whats bullshit?

That many kids dont belong in college?

or that the best educated people make the best leaders?
I think it's that people who went to college are basically thought to be more educated. Frankly I know a lot of people who got educated, but have no real clue on how to use it. Knowing facts without the ability to apply them really doesn't do someone any good.

While I worry and fear for the kids who are glued to electronic screens and indoctrinated by Socialist Professors; the one thing that gives me hope is how these kids have been slugging it out in Iraq and Afghanistan.

They have bought their generation a PASS.

Many college grads are not even well educated

but they are working at Starbucks, while crying about how much debt they have

True that. Just addressing what I *think* their issue was. Maybe I'm wrong.
