I feel some sympathy for this young woman, and I applaud the rather dark humor displayed in her ad, but what made her think a diploma as a theater major would make her marketable in the real world?
I had a liberal arts diploma, with majors in English lit and history, so my employers could safely assume I was literate and could string words together in sentences which could be understood by an ordinary person. I also learned how to type very well and to take dictation, which meant I could always get a job somewhere doing secretarial work. I did my share of it, but I spent more time as an administrative assistant and a real estate paralegal, which resulted in higher wages and better utilization of my particular skill sets.
I’m glad I got a college degree. It was useful to me. I think a college degree is less useful now, because you can major in women’s studies, which is pointless outside of academia and the grievance industry. If you desire a college diploma, work to pay for it. I cooked and tutored and typed. It doesn’t matter much what part-time jobs you have, but you’ll learn many valuable lessons from that exposure, and hopefully select a field which requires more than 50 new workers a year.
Having had his Interior Secretary change the name of Mount McKinley to Mount Denali, His Oneness is travelling to Alaska to promote global warming hysteria, for which you should read more wasted taxpayer money and more government control over your life. The change was first requested in 1975, but the Ohio congressional delegation has blocked it because Pres. McKinley was an Ohio native. Apparently, all His Oneness need do now is announce he has the power to do as he pleases without consulting Congress.
Secretary of State John Kerry will accompany him to sing more verses of climate change and pending disaster. No mention will be made of the tons of carbon emissions his trip will produce, nor of the manipulated climate data, much less that there has been no warming for over 17 years.
This is truly too funny — “Hillary for Prison” signs keep being stolen — in the Hamptons, of all places.
Judging by these photos, the concrete in the new Panama Canal is disastrously substandard. If it is already leaking, its future is bleak indeed when you contemplate the enormous pressures involved with emptying and refilling locks.
Until the Military Times pointed out the error, the DNC website captioned a photo of Polish military veterans as American veterans. I give it credit for promptly substituting a shot of U.S. Ranger vets instead.
It also calls the Department of Veterans Affairs by its old name, the Veterans Administration. Let’s face it, folks — few Democrats harbor any affection for our military, either the individuals or the institutions. With the retirement of Gen. Ray Odierno, His Oneness has rid himself of nearly all of the war-fighting command staff. God help us.
Rule One: Consensus is NOT science. Rule Two: Soft sciences, especially psychology, are squishy under the best of circumstances. Hard science, as it was once practiced before the Obama Administration and the climate hysterics decided to corrupt the process, demands that the results of an experiment be repeatable. The soft sciences have always fallen short in this area, as this shows. Such a paltry success rate would get you laughed out of any hard science experiment.
