    Get over it Boo, nobody is attacking education. We are attacking people that have nothing but education so don't lump yourself in with the losers, you obviously are very well rounded.

    And if it is proven that the rebels were the ones using chemical weapons, would you feel the same?
    Of course.
    Would you justify their use by stating that they are fighting the regime, so it's okay?
    No, the use by any group violates the ban.

    Again, most are. That's the point. And you are attacking education.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    So. How's that working out?
    The same arguments against "intellectual" leadership can be found in budding revolutionary fascist and communist states. Maybe they knew something that we don't.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    See this is the thing about formal education taught by these liberal profs. As well rounded as you are you have bought into their elitist mindset that anyone who thinks ivory tower academics are not superior human beings must hate education. This is the downside of pursuing a higher education as taught in most of our universities, you get as much indoctrination as education or maybe even more.

    Again, nonsense. I stand by what I said earlier, you don't know who is really teaching on the whole, and you're so arrogant as to think students don't have their own minds.

    I'll repeat this for you:

    You know that's bs. Complete bs. Take me. I've drove truck, served in the military, worked retail, waited tables, cooked, partnered in an antique shop, and worked construction. What in that is not an honest days work?

    And I'm not alone.

    You also have no respect for young people who work jobs, have families, and try to balance both with getting an education. You also think they don't have their own minds. How arrogant of you.

    Like I said, the stuff you spew is the problem. Not education.
