Dumb And Getting Dumber
And apparently as happy as pigs in shit that way.

Quote:Republican voters turn against book learning as the party's enstupiding accelerates

Quote:A majority of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents (58%) now say that colleges and universities have a negative effect on the country, up from 45% last year. By contrast, most Democrats and Democratic leaners (72%) say colleges and universities have a positive effect, which is little changed from recent years.

Between that and propaganda dressed up as news or funny memes - we are sooo screwed.

What could we possibly get from all that fancy book learning? Drinking Beverage

RE: Dumb And Getting Dumber
So...how does that make them dumb?

There are different ways to learn. Apprenticeships, academies etc.

The lack of a college degree does not make someone dumb.

Plenty of mechanics, electricians, builders and craftsmen with no formal education that can do things the average person could only dream of. You can't be stupid and tear down a diesel engine into 7,000 parts and put it back together again. My father didn't even graduate high school and was the lead CNC machinist for Rockwell International, on the MAZAK laser that made space shuttle parts. Also the B-1B Bomber program.

Then you have dipshits with master's degrees that can't find a job, working at Starbucks and can't master how to make a latte correctly and have to cry in the back room after they get yelled at by a customer.

College is a joke and is creating a generation of angry women and wimpy "men."

I caught thirty seconds of a Saturday morning show on FoxNews. A panel of civilian women were being tossed leading questions. One of the women found herself agreeing with the most pathetic of talking points--that the media, by focussing too much on Russia, was the reason no legislation is getting passed. It was a really whiny "let him do his job, it's so unfair!" moment, and so laughable I had seen enough. I turned the channel marveling at how some people still watch that shit for hours daily and never does the light turn on.

The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who have not got it. (G.B.Shaw)

A good point, but then again I don't trust the GOP to do that. Look how the GOP are falling in line with Trump when there is Credible evidence that Donald Trump Jr, Colluded with Russians, and lies get smashed to pieces

Then they have should have planned better.

Look in a fucking mirror and you'll have your answer.

Thanks, once again, for being the bad example!

Sure, that's what Pol Pot thought of higher education also.

Suffice to say, without higher education, fewer people will get well paying jobs. A country finding higher education to be hurtful, can shake hands with the third of the Third worlds in one or two generations.

These people are dumb, there's no denying it.

Without people going to college, you wouldn't be sitting here conversing with us, mechanics would have no cars to repair and on and on. It all starts with educated people discovering shit. It's called science. Without it, you can go back to horse and buggy times.
