  •  Scholarly children are more likely to (0+ / 0-)

    increase the tax base.

    I appreciate the arts. I have been an active musician since I was child. However, I also hold undergraduate and graduate degrees in computer science.   Which set of skills do you think society values most?

    The GOP has become the "Jerry Springer" party.

    •  But WE are society... (0+ / 0-)

      and WE can inform ourselves and others of the value of a diversity of gifts.  
      Ask people if they value plumbers when their toilets are backing up?  Or the mechanics when their car won't start and it's cold and they need to get it started.  

      We do value the others........we did for many years.  But the media and too many greedy people have decided only the scholarly mattered and NOW that is being narrowed even more....as in only the scholarly who go into finance matter.

      Either we all make a decision to change or we continue down this path to a society separated by class, and class determined by greed.
