    Perhaps a remedial reading course? According to one source I posted, Wisconsin in official and real unemployment rate, Wisconsin is up there with the top 10. All sources agree that last month, Wisconsin's official unemployment rate was 5.2% while the national average is 5.6%. That would put Wisconsin I think ranked 17th or 18th in lowest official unemployment rate. You were the one to say Wisconsin's unemployment rate exceeded the national average I believe.

    And I have never said Wisconsin's GDP was in the top 10. I said that Wisconsin is #20 in population and #20 in GDP, which means it is certainly holding its own.

    Well, guess if a person is smart enough...no need for high school. Go straight to med school. I knew a number of people in college who were "pre-med" students who were in majoring "OLOGIES" of one type or another...and even chemistry. They graduated. If I had my ruthers when seeing a doc, I'd prefer an ologie/chem undergrads that went on to med school than an english undergrad, but thats just me.

    I see medical professionals who have gather a body of knowledge that usually involves undergrad work...might possibly be skill/practice enhancing. But that's just me.

    If the undergrad drop out works for you...groove.

    1) My observation was regarding a specific person.

    2) For all their protestations, said person never did offer any personal examples to the contrary.

    It appears that he does not value it for Wisconsin.

    This seems like a pretty relevant piece of information when regarding him as a potential Presidential candidate.
    I think it is interesting how he is trying to repurpose the university to deliver graduates who will have skills that are desired by the state.

    I'm a business owner without a college degree. In the 8 years of being in business and the previous 20 working for other people, of the many people I have hired and fired or been a mentor to in apprenticeship I can tell you that a college degree has meant absolutely zero to quality or proficiency on the job. These days I am more likely to hire someone with a good attitude and problem solving skills that someone with a degree even in our field. I can teach job specific skills, college does not teach good attitude or work ethic. Quite the opposite in my experience. I hold 9 Master certifications and am the go to guy in the area for diagnostics, when other shops get hung up on something it ends up at my shop. My most successful apprentice studied under me for 2 years and THEN went to school for it.

    Re: Scott Walkers lack of College Degree.

    If somebody hasn't figured out what Scott Walker would do by now, and what his motivation and mindset would be, then really they're too effing stupid to vote.

    Same goes for any other candidate who is two decades plus beyond normal college age years.

    I take back any positive kudos that I've been attempting to give to Scott Walker. He's a common run-of-the-mill imbecile politician.

    Charming guy, isn't he? Subtle as a rutting moose. Except when Walker is asked about his belief in evolution, then he's all shuck and jive.

    he was asked basically to see if conflict could be stirred up between him and Guliani, and he passed on the offer by pointing out that he doesn't know (and he doesn't). I don't think anyone is going to see this in a negative light who wasn't already predisposed to vote against him.
