    College has ceased to become about education and has become a "gateway drug to prosperity". The HS Diploma has become about "can we give you a low wage job and you know how to obey".
    The education system today is all about getting just enough training to do your job. Be it an engineer, teacher, lawyer, plumber, or burger flipper. With many institutions becoming nothing more than diploma mills that saddle their students with 20-30 years of loan payments.

    I talk to twenty-somethings just out of college and if the topic isn't something they covered in the last semester (or related to the latest TV show fad) they don't know jack about it. The concept of a "broad, liberal education" is all but gone from our schools. Sacrificed on the altar of cramming as many students cattle thru the school feed lot as possible.

    GOP 2014 strategy -- Hire clowns, elephants, and a ringmaster and say "a media circus" has emerged and blame Democrats for lack of progress. Have pundits agree that "both sides are to blame" and hope the public will stay home on election day.
