Honorary School Counselor Michelle
Obama: ´College Is for Everyone´

Cybercast News Service, by Susan Jones

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 7/2/2014 9:23:50 PM

Higher education is no longer just for kids in the top quarter or the top half of the class. College is for everyone," First lady Michelle Obama told a gathering of school counselors in Florida on Tuesday. "Every student in this country needs some higher education, whether that´s two-year degree, a four-year degree, or professional training of some sort." Mrs. Obama went to the annual meeting of the American School Counselor Association in Florida to thank counselors for taking on a demanding job without the resources necessary to meet the challenges. They, in turn, made her an honorary school counselor.

College is not for everyone! In fact, many of today´s college students should be attending trade schools to learn works skills! Graduates from today´s colleges, and they will graduate whether they can make passing grades or not, will flounder helplessly about and end up on government hand outs.

HUGE, HUGE, HUGE lie from a HUGE liar. College most certainly isn´t for everyone. In fact, for many it is a complete waste of time since their desires, talents, and needs lie elsewhere.

But then, for someone who has never had a passion for anything but destruction, what does she know.

About five years ago my daughter attended a "medical assistant" trade school using her husband´s GI bill. Out of a dozen students in her class she was the only one who graduated. She ended up working for a cardiologist who ended up ending his practice because of Obamacare, but she is still working for him at a university hospital with state benefits.

The other people in her class were there for the entitlements. That is what this is all about.

I think John Ratzenberger might beg to differ. The country also needs skilled tradesmen and tradeswomen. Skills that cannot be outsourced.

As a college grad, I still appreciate and respect those who skillfully work with their hands. We all work together to make America happen. There is dignity in all work.

If you want proof that Michelle Obama is nearly illiterate read Dinesh D´Souza´s critique of her "senior honors thesis". She is able to "wreak havoc" on the English language in just one sentence. She also is quoted as saying she did not have the grades to get into Princeton. Oops somehow got accepted anyway. Wonder how...I guess everyone can go to college so long as the acceptance officials use the percutaneous method of selection.

"College" is progressive-speak for something that outwardly resembles a place of higher learning but in fact serves to house unemployable communists, absorb and waste unbelievable amounts of tax money and mass produce non-thinking uneducated droids that are indoctrinated with love for a failed and evil government model: communism.

So, yes, from a progressive point of view everyone needs to go to College.

Michelle is wrong. Bookish nerds like me have much to gain from college. Many young people will gain nothing. College provides a base for thinking. If you don´t think already, college will not help.
Unfortunately our "high schools" have abandoned vocational training, such as typing, sewing, cooking, auto shop, hairdressing, and so on. Each of these is a skill which provides employment. You can make $100,000 a year as an auto technician! Strict egalatarianism brought this about, as working with one´s hands was demeaning and racist. I am an adjunct at a local community college. Their most successful branch is automobile technology!
Clearly Michelle gained nothing from College. She probably couldn´t think when she went in, and she can´t think now.

The headline is a bit off as Michelle does allude to 2 year degrees "or professional training of some sort" indicating she does not really know of what she speaks.

Not until vocational track programs in high school receive the same status as college tract programs will these programs excel. The easy FAFSA money has downgraded the integrity of these programs as another poster remarked.

I´m including a link to the 2011 Harvard Graduate School of Education Study "Pathway to Prosperity" for anyone wanting an interesting read on what IS lacking and needed for the future. It worth downloading and reading .... even if it is from Harvard. You will be pleasantly surprised. http://www.gse.harvard.edu/news_events/features/2011/Pathways_to_Prosperity_Feb2011.pdf

This is a true story from my hometown. Bare with me as it is over 50 years old...showing things do not change.

In the 1960´s the local TV repairman arrives at his former senior English teacher´s home to repair her TV. Mrs. Wilson was notorious as a demanding teaching and known to mentally break some of the best students. The TV repairman did well in her class and she remembered him fondly.

As he was repairing the TV Mrs. Wilson expressed her remorse that he had not gone on to college and made something of himself.

To which and to her surprise he remarked, "Mrs. Wilson, you haven´t gotten my bill yet!".

As is always the case with anything involving former-Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, our unbiased, objective, not-at-all-liberal media couldn´t wait to mock her impeachment case against President Obama -- but not everyone is laughing. According to reporting from The Hill, The White House fears exactly that should the president take executive action to grant amnesty to thousands of illegals. Senior White House advisers are taking very seriously the possibility that Republicans in Congress will try to impeach President Obama, especially if he takes executive action to slow deportations.

Israel is leaning toward rejecting US Secretary of State John Kerry´s proposal for a cease-fire in the Gaza Strip, Channel 10 reported on Friday. Citing sources in the diplomatic-security cabinet that convened in Tel Aviv on Friday, Channel 10 said that Israel viewed Kerry´s bridging proposals as "a Qatari proposal with ornaments." Qatar has been accused by Israel of providing financing and political support to Hamas. According to Channel 10, senior Israeli ministers have ruled as "out of the question" a cease-fire in which the IDF would be prevented from fully rooting out the threat of underground tunnels built by

Militants with the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, planted explosives around the tomb and detonated them remotely Thursday, civil defense officials there told CNN.

President Obama told Democratic donors Wednesday night that most Americans don’t have time to think about the details of the Benghazi terrorist attack or the problems with Obamacare. Speaking at a fundraiser at the Los Angeles home of “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Scandal” creator Shonda Rhimes, the president took his usual shots at the Republican Party, suggesting its members are focused on the wrong issues and frequently “obfuscate and they bamboozle and sometimes don’t say what’s true.” And because people are not familiar with the intricacies of many public-policy issues, Republicans can get away with such obfuscation, he said. “The Republican

The president’s demeanor is worrying a lot of people. From the immigration crisis on the Mexican border to the Islamic State rising in Mesopotamia, Barack Obama seems totally detached from the world’s convulsions. When he does interrupt his endless rounds of golf, fundraising and photo ops, it’s for some affectless, mechanical, almost forced public statement. Regarding Ukraine, his detachment — the rote, impassive voice — borders on dissociation. His U.N. ambassador, Samantha Power, delivers an impassioned denunciation of Russia. Obama cautions that we not “get out ahead of the facts,” as if the facts of this case — Vladimir Putin’s

That journalist was Lucinda Franks and while her latest book, “Timeless: Love, Morgenthau, and Me,” doesn’t have much to do about the Clintons, the part that does offers never before reported information from a 1999 interview with the former First Lady.

When President Obama issues executive orders on immigration in coming weeks, pro-reform activists are expecting something dramatic: temporary relief from deportation and work authorization for perhaps several million undocumented immigrants. If the activists are right, the sweeping move would upend a contentious policy fight and carry broad political consequences. The activists met privately with the President and his aides June 30 at the White House, and say in that meeting Obama suggested he will act before the November midterm elections. hey hope his decision will offer relief to a significant percentage of the estimated

The chairman of the Federal Election Commission today blasted Democratic colleagues opposed to his effort to protect conservative media after they imposed rules on the publisher of Rep. Paul Ryan´s new book, opening the door to future book regulations -- or even a ban. "By failing to affirm this publisher’s constitutional right, statutory right, to disseminate a political book free from FEC conditions and regulations, we have effectively asserted regulatory jurisdiction over a book publisher,” warned Chairman Lee E.

ST. LOUIS – The nation´s third botched execution in six months offers more evidence for the courts that lethal injection carries too many risks and amounts to cruel and unusual punishment, death-row lawyers and other opponents said Thursday. Death-penalty opponents say the execution of an Arizona inmate who took two hours to die shows that state experiments with different drugs and dosages are a callous trial-and-error process. The result: Every few months, an inmate gasps, chokes and takes an unusually long time to die.

According to a CNN/ORC International poll released Friday, 33 percent of Americans think the president should be impeached and removed from office, compared with 65 percent who say they don’t support impeachment. Fifty-seven percent of Republicans say they support impeaching Obama, compared with just 35 percent of independent voters and 13 percent of Democrats.
