Dear Graduates: You’re Screwed!

All true, and much needed. However, to support the fact--yes, fact--that conservatives are well-informed and reliable as enlighteners, how about careful attention to mechanics in writing? (One graduates from college; one does not graduate college. When the writer speaks of two parents, using the possessive, he places the apostrophe after the s.) The message is vital; commendations to the writer, but please, let's represent ourselves as well-educated as to our use of the language.

It’s graduation season, and prominent political and media figures are making the rounds to give commencement speeches at colleges across the country. The president, administration officials, progressive members of Congress, left-wing television talking heads, liberal columnists, etc., are spewing so many feel-good platitudes that you’d think doing so was an Olympic event and they were training for the gold in London.

The one thing missing from these speeches is reality.

As such, and since not even an online college has asked me to deliver a commencement address, I’ll give mine here.

Graduates, congratulations on successfully completing college....
