But just think how successful they would have been HAD they graduated! On a more serious note----what bugs the he// out of me about guys like Gates, Jobs & the more recent case of Zuckerburg is their willingness to get into bed with the feds & do whatever is necessary to rig the system in their favor. it's like the second they're successful & hit the jackpot--they won't fight to keep intact the very capitalist system & economic freedom that allowed them to build their business--preferring to kissup to & expand failed public schooling, idiotic environmentalism & progressive taxation.
You use your education to excel, you don't use your diploma. I've simply dealt with to many "educated idiots" that are out-performed by people who, on the face of it, are less credentialed. I'm not discounting the value of education--it's important, but a sheepskin isn't a substitute for hard work, dedication & ambition. I run into this all the time--people who have the attitude "I have a degree, this is beneath me". That's what this Perdue character sounds like.

Never understood why I would want to abuse any drug to the point of self destruction just because it's legal to do so. I quit cigarettes & I stopped drinking to excess in my early 20s to the point where I rarely drink at all..........it's called "growing up". The best anti drug program known. The whole idea that the state of Washington & Colorado are going to go down the toilet really sells Americans short. If you sit in your home & smoke dope--leave em alone. If they get in a car & drive--throw the book at em. Personal liberty Personal responsibility.................& no I'm not a liberal, I'm conservative.
Can't these news sites give transcriptions along with the video? It isn't like the software is all that exotic.
Case in point................The Affordable Care Act. We all get to watch the process in real time.
ALL socialism.....................is crony socialism. It's the very nature of the system that the second any good or service is socialized...we all have to game the political system to get any of it----& at least as important, we all have to game the political system to protect what is ours. We are all forced to become "cronies".
You have to understand--liberals get their news from reputable news sources like Comedy Central & The View.
Careful about that credit thing---I saw that-- they then immediately reported it in the context of the fight over extending unemployment benefits. Liberals to the end.
All CCN did was make official what we already knew---human interest & sensationalism is their stock & trade.
