No, those with advanced degrees are more likely to be employed as teachers or in academia, and/or they lived off of government grants and research contracts while obtaining their advanced degrees. Pigs always want more food in the trough.
The Palistinian anger/outrage is no different than the racist anger/outrage of blacks in the US, or the anger/outrage of the French separatists in Quebec, the Catalan separatists in Spain, or the Iranian anger/outrage at the West. It's all driven by politicians and leaders to keep their followers anger/outrage focused on some external "evil" rather than on their own leadership. It's how they build their own power and stay in control...by giving their followers someone else to blame for their follower's own failures. It worked for Hitler, Lenin, Stalin, Khrushchev, and Obama.
"...future is simply too important to leave to politicians." That's true of most of our world, economy, and lives, BUT the politicians and elitists in Washington insist that they know better--they know how to manage our economy, our lives, and our world affairs better than we do. The only solution is to quit electing politicians and start electing people who cherish liberty, individual responsibility, and economics.

Taxing Life Away

The only time we have ever been able to reduce taxes is through revolution. Yes we've sometimes reduced tax rates, but every time, the total revenue from taxes has gone up. Reducing the tax rate is good politics, but the total taxes collected is what the nation is actually paying in taxes.

The only solution to this is to let energy prices skyrocket to the point that our national economy stops. When people can't afford to put gasoline in their cars to go to work; when factories and businesses can't afford to keep their lights and heat on; when stores can't stock food and necessities because trucks can't afford to operate; and prices for everything skyrockets as a result, the ignorant voters will figure it out. Unfortunately by then the Dems will have figured out how to blame it on Bush.
Had the airport not have a "gun-free zone," legally carrying civilians would have prevented the situation in the first place and the TSA officer would be alive today.
ATF needs to be disbanded. Roll their responsibilities into the FBI, get rid of the bureaucracy, and allow their agents to apply for jobs in the FBI if they're qualified.

Republicans and Blacks

Then why is this article written by a black man stereotyping blacks as a voting block that we should be going after. Just referring to blacks as a group who typically vote Democrap is stereotyping them. We should be talking about consistent, solid positions that help everyone, not just blacks. If those positions are beneficial to us all, blacks will join in, not because they're black but because our position benefits everyone.

Dr. Sowell barely touched on an issue that I think is at the heart of the issue--that we tend to stereotype all blacks together into a whole rather than as individuals. Many of us have close friends who are black and think like us. I've even been taken to task by one who informed me that not all blacks celebrate Kwanzaa! Once we begin to treat blacks as individuals with individual beliefs and responsibilities we can begin to enlarge the GOP tent to include them. But that same point applies to libertarians, many of whom are black.
You want standards? How 'bout we start with one that says everyone speaks English! Or one that says if you don't graduate from high school you are ineligible for welfare, food stamps, ADA, unemployment compensation, voting, and a driver's license.
