Words to live by from your friends at The Daily Paul. So, you've just spent at least 80,000 on a college degree (purchased it, no returns or exchanges, sold as is)? You've just been called a student for the last 4 years, which is a different name than a customer, but whats the difference? You now have a designer name, (as in MD, PhD, BA, MA) but no guarantee of a job. Your college treated all of the subjects equal, except they're not all equally marketable, by a longshot. You qualify as a person now, according to society, since you have a college degree. You might also have been given the impression that the only way you become educated on a subject is if you have a college degree in it, or have taken a college course, instead of just going to the local public library & checking out 3 or 4 books on it for free. In other words, the only real education is a paid for college education. What would be the use for colleges if they didn't have degrees, no one would see the sense in going. Hmmm you're paying for access to the instructor, for a limited time, 1 instructor at a time who is the only 1 with the authority to give you a grade.
IN case you weren't satisfied with your supposedly spectacular commencement address given by some big whig, here are some real quotes as you walk through life with your college degree which may or may not have been worthwhile.
Life's real failure is when you do not realize how close you were to success when you gave up -- Author unknown
Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter. -- Martin Luther King, JR 1929-1968
There are 2 entities without competition in our country, the government and the currency (money) -- Mell_o_Drama
There are 2 kinds of debt, personal debt & government debt. The 1st kind you must be personally responsible for & address to the extent you can, the 2nd is your share of the gov't debt, which is only addressed at election time & by the candidates for election. -- Mell_o_Drama
A tax doesn't have to be labeled a tax for it to be a tax. Tolls are an example, parking tickets are an example.
You are even taxed for going to church at Christmas, its called the gasoline tax used to get there.
If you can't figure out what the law is, you don't know when you're breaking 1.
If you're a Republican & want to know what it feels like to be a Democrat, go change your voter registration, then change back if you'd rather be a Republican.
You must comment on this to keep it on the front page, any others?
