Reading "RANSOM'S RANTS" every morning is fun Years ago I taught Nuclear Power in Admiral Rickover's Navy. We started with students that had an IQ of at least 120 just to enter the program. Most has at least some college. The program was in two parts, academic and an empirical qualification program at an actual reactor. If they passed both phases, the student was then allowed to go to the fleet and qualify on an operating ship or submarine reactor. The amazing part was that our first job in the empirical training was to teach the student to "think for them selves". Academia does NOT teach our kids to think. Sadly witnessed by many of the comments posted. Ransom's common sense sarcasm is refreshing.

I previously addressed your main point this way.

Much can be learned in Military training programs but they do not call them educational programs; they are training programs. Unfortunately many of our educational institutions are simply training, conveying the instructors biases to a new generation. Students are penalized for thinking, and darn near ostracized for thinking different from their liberal, narcissistic professors. The message is, you came here where we have figured these things out, so you only need transcribe our thoughts!

Apparently you were not in the Naval Nuclear Power program like myself and Levi above. Sorry to burst your bubble but it was indeed an education program. Anything that takes a year and a half to complete ceases to be training alone no matter what you think. Though, you are mostly correct in regards to "institutions".

Dear Kathleen,

In elections the only one responsible for the outcome is the candidate. Romney had every chance to win and he didn’t. His bad, not Gary Johnson’s.

Unfortunately the GOP has too often put forward candidates that advocate the very policies that they criticize their opponent for.
