Diminishing Returns to Higher Education?

sparcboy Wrote: Apr 04, 2014 8:29 AM
Part of what needs to be considered is supply and demand. Now there are more college educated than there are jobs that require a college education. (Our receptionist, trying to get a foot in the door, has a 4 year degree from the University of Texas. She is working so far below her potential...) This, in a free market, naturally drives down wages.

That's the course of the many, but I paid my way through college, going primarily at night. It took me 9 years to get my first degree. I never considered borrowing money to pay for any of it.

Democrats are only about power and control. Deep down inside, the could care less about the masses. But preaching they're the ones that care works for the ill-informed and/or short-sighted. Democrats policies are, in general, bad for the country in the long-term. How anyone with an iota of morals and/or ethics be OK with a party that has no problem suffocating our children and grand children's under a mountain of debt?

It's quite simple: marketing, when done correctly, works. Just look at "reality" TV. It's done great primarily because it deals with people in extreme situations, thus getting the big emotional response. Even shows about mentally ill people who hoard garbage is successful. It's that emotional "click" that works, despite being verifiable false. Think about all the talking points and slogans against Republicans. They want to starve the elderly, women and children in the streets. They're the party of the rich. "War on women"....ad infinitum...ad naseum. Does marketing work? Look how easily and quickly a guy became a billionaire selling 5 hour energy. Probably 10 cents worth of vitamins and supplements. You could by a months supply if you bought them bulk yourself what you pay for one bottle. Humans are easily used and manipulated.

Why Hillary Clinton Will Win in 2016

Shapiro couldn't be more correct on why the Republicans will lose. Democrats are masters at politics and failures at efficiently running the nation and vice versa for Republicans. If Republicans were smart, they would relentlessly portray Hillary for what she is, institutionalized government corruption and equate her with her sleaze-bag husband and let the public no if they elect her, they're going to get more of the same, another lying politician. They should show Hillary watching clips of Obama, and nodding yes, while he's saying, "If you like your doctor, you can keep him." If you like health insurance plan, you can keep it."
Not only is Colbert a comedian, he is the personification of a joke. Never to be taken seriously.
Interesting comment on geography. That very geography is what is allowing us to be invaded by illegals from all over the world every day.

Clearly Branson is an optimist...of this definition: An optimist is someone who tells you to cheer up when everything is going their way.
Think of this way Bill, if you're OK with denying me my rights protected by the 2nd Amendment, then I just might be OK with denying you your rights protected by the 1st Amendment. Like the way that works? "Once you buy the argument that some segment of the citizenry should lose their rights, just because they are envied or resented, you are putting your own rights in jeopardy-- quite aside from undermining any moral basis for respecting anybody's rights. You are opening the floodgates to arbitrary power. And once you open the floodgates, you can't tell the water where to go." - Thomas Sowell
