Bloomberg: Skip College and Become Plumbers

**Well....it is easier to control one plumbers union that a multitude of independent individuals.** Far easier to control people who are $100K in debt and earning but $50K per year and rely upon a corporation for employment. Independent, skilled tradesmen are not easy to control-- their services are always in demand, they don't rely upon anyone else for their bread & butter, and they aren't paying half their income to student loan companies.

"Yet you have posted nothing more than a Youtube link!" I posted a talk given by renown expert Dr. Charles Murray. You are part of the 50% that is below average. Hillbilly.

20% is how it has always been. The truth is that 50% of people are below average intellectually: they are not capable of earning a meaningful degree. Bloomberg was right! Learning a skilled trade it what most people ought to do!

Facts & figures along with an expert, a conservative one nonetheless, discussing the fallacies of our education system. Bloomberg's advice was sound. Going 5 figures into debt to earn a poli sci or history degree is foolishness.
Were liberals' education levels not a bit higher than ours this might have a conservative point. However, it's just a political version of 'Jay walking' for cheap laughs and a good, but unintentional, criticism of universal suffrage.

Pat gives us a side of the immigration debate you'll never hear from traitors Linda Chavez, Jef Jacoby, or Hugh Hewitt-- with 'conservatives' like them, we can't afford leftists. They couldn't save James Watson for similar comments he made about a field in which he has a Nobel prize. Mr. Richwine is out in the cold for good. Meanwhile, our schools continue to fail, our neighborhoods fall apart, our prisons overflow, gangs rule our streets, and our wages stagnate: problems we wouldn't be having if we were still 90% White.

Sowell wrote similar columns, of equal eloquence, a decade ago urging us to stop the gathering storm in Iraq.
Strange that border security works so well everywhere there is a serious will, but, of course, say those who seek the demographic transformation of America "it will never work here! Supply ALWAYS meets demand." I like your suggestions of punishing the 'job creators' who're employing the illegals, indeed cheering for a new underclass. I suggest a rope and a lamppost to incentivize the elites who seek our displacement to rethink their treasonous position.
He's a mass immigration enthusiast / treason lobbyist. You can show him facts of thousands of illegals entering daily and he'll whine "But we spend billions on border security!" Such is the mindset of our 'elites'. No price is too high for someone else to pay.
Does Jeff Jacoby live in a barrio where gangs rule the streets and beat up his kids at school, where anything not nailed down is stolen, and the entire neighborhood is on welfare OR does he live in a posh Boston suburb where all the Hispanics he knows are paid (minimum wage or less) to put a smile on their faces and politely serve him? The question is rhetorical: everyone knows that Jeff, a graduate of the (semi) prestigious Boston University Law School, does not live around the underclasses of the 3rd World. He just gets to posture as enlightened while other people's neighborhoods turn to cesspools, their kids terrorized at school, and see their once tranquil lives turned upside down. Jeff, and the other treason lobbyists, will be responsible for much suffering. How shall we reward the traitors?
