Actually, no you won't do better than a Republican who didn't go to school because his daddy got him the job. I know a lot of guys who's fathers hooked them up right after high school. These guys don't know what the real world is like because their fathers handed them a great life. They don't even realize their own white privilege. I was talking to my republican cop buddy the other day. He doesn't care that college isn't affordable now in fact he didn't pay for college when he went in the 90's. His daddy paid for it. And he's a cop in a union who's going to get a pension and that's what allows his ignorant ass to be conservative. He was bragging about how Sean and Bill and Brian all did really well for themselves without college. Then I reminded him how they got those jobs. He didn't care because it doesn't fit his narrative.Even with the G.I. Bill and some money from where I work by the time I finished college I owed $56,000.what would two or three years worth if tuition money wasted by not getting a degree be worth?Yeah buy beer guns and vote Republican .Irrelevant.
I gave a link can you ?
If nothing else half of those people entering college should not have bothered
They could have used that money they wasted on 2 or 3 years of tuition much more productively
The average private college tuition is 50K
So let's say your bright eyed kid enrolls in college and like 50% of all freshmen never graduates with a degree
Instead of shelling out 150K on nothing he could have saved up for a down payment on a home, or started a business, or got some training for a job in the trades
But I guess it's better for 50% of all freshmen who enroll in college to rack up debt and get absolutely nothing for it
Not only did I pay that off but I raised a family and I retired at 63.
I retired a senior design engineer from a company that built custom equipment. I trained at least a dozen good engineers before I retired.
If you go to college and you get a degree in Scottish clog dancing then yeah you’re going to have a problem getting a good job.
But if you have a degree in Scottish clog dancing then you’re probably going to do better than a Republican who didn’t even finish high school.
But it’s not all about college you could become an electrician or a plumber and make a very good living.
The problem with Republicans is that they just don’t believe in education. No matter what it is.
If Republicans did believe in education they wouldn’t vote into office people who cut funding for job training. Not just College, Republicans cut funding. How else are you going to pay for tax cuts for billionaires?
Anyways, I've realized that Republicans are all greedy selfish bastards. I am one of them now. I can't worry about college kids student loans. When it turns out only 40% of 18 year olds show up to vote, fuck them. When only 40% of poor people show up every 2 years, fuck them. When women vote for Republicans and Republicans want to do away with affirmative action and equal pay for equal work, fuck em.
These people are the ones that will benefit from these liberal policies not me. So why should I care? I tried. I showed up and voted Democratic every 2 years for 28 years. How the fuck are Republicans in charge today? So sorry Dean, but fuck liberals. I may agree with you guys but you are not smart enough as a group to show up and vote, I have to cut my ties with you all. Sorry. I'l still vote Democratic but I have to say liberals are losers. Most of them anyways.
