The Road to Hell are Paved with Good Intentions

There are more people with college educations and connections to the internet but few with the intellectual curiosity to research a historical fact or current event. The middle class was brain-washed back in the 70's thinking that their children HAD to go to college so sub-standard colleges were created that made big bucks graduating half-wits who now can't communicate (verbally or in writing); who don't know what "D-Day" signifies and can't point out Iraq, Afganistan or Dubai on a map.

So this is the result of a college education, when grads can't make $12.00 an hour because it takes 3-grads to write a correct sentence?

In case no one noticed, "trade schools" are back, but to appease the small minded Americans they call them "universities or colleges" but an academic background is not required so they are actually Mickey Mouse. Just another way of taking money from the middle class who believe that their ordinary Jill or Joe should have a higher education even though they don't know how to write a check.
