    However, obtaining an education used to mean something quite different than it is not, meaning not built around structured studies and diplomas.

    Welp, there ya go. The bolded and red text in your post points out the possible. I would say that Walker might well be a person who fits into that category of being educated. Disclaimer: I'm in no way implying Walker's intelligence is equal to, more than, less than Washington or Lincoln. Merely pointing out he's an educated person without an official college credential.

    Obviously the following folks didn't have an official college credential, but were, in their own right, educated:

    Michael Dell, the founder and CEO of Dell, Inc., dropped out of college at 19.

    Henry Ford never graduated high school.

    Bill Gates, a college dropout after attending 2 years.

    John D. Rockefeller Sr., a high school dropout, became the first American billionaire.

    Steven Spielberg briefly attended State University in Long Beach, CA.

    Mark Zuckerberg dropped out in his sophomore year of college.

    So in essences, especially in our society today, yes, the value of a lot of types of non-technical, non-medical degrees are often based on social perception rather than concrete education.

    And obviously, the world has become more complex, more technical. There is the necessity of creating institutions charged with creating standards of practice within certain professional disciplines. Those institution must ensure that all who chooses to engage in the public practice of a respective discipline is competent and skilled enough to participate in the profession. Those institutions are also charge with the responsibility to policing all practicing members.

    Perhaps there needs to be an institution created for setting the standards and policing the professional disciplines of "Political Spinning, Public Deception, Special Interests Cultivation, Taxpayer Exploitation."

    Went through that place about four or five winters ago. Thought it was a great place in between the usual booze for breakfast, booze for lunch and booze for dinner.

    thank for reminding me about the late night intake.

    I think we have been there about eight or nine times now over the last 12 years. I distinctly remember the first year we hit Key West we were having breakfast and the folks around us were all drinking bloody mary's and we thought it was very inappropriate. Within another year or two we were dining like natives.

    Those roosters are something else. And the Hemingway cats - six toes and all - who can forget that.

    Re: Scott Walkers lack of College Degree.

    [QUOTE=Risky Thicket;1064324263]I strongly disagree regarding Bush and his military service and a little regarding Al Gore. This thread is not the place to discuss it.

    You can disagree until the Jupiter goes supernova. It does not matter. I speak the truth about Gore and Bush.

    I will say this, I still have copies of my volunteer requests (2) for Vietnam. I'm certain Bush still has his too, but we've never seen them. Actually he didn't have enough flight time to qualify AND he was flying the wrong aircraft.
    Does not mean he did not attempt to volunteer. You are at least partially correct about the fact that he was flying the wrong aircraft(at the time) to qualify for Vietnam service. The plane he flew had seen combat earlier in Vietnam, however was not much in use in Vietnam at the time he enlisted. But then, the Vietnam war was winding down at the time. I am not claiming that Bush was a perfect young man in that era. He was a party animal at the time. So was Al Gore.

    And they both held a "gentleman's C" average as undergrads with Bush's being slightly higher, as I recall.
