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!".

America has a doomsday plane. Actually it has four of them. But the US government does not — repeat, DOES NOT — talk openly about its doomsday planes. The doomsday plane is like a mirror to Air Force One — a great big flying working office for the president and his or her staff. But while Air Force One is your everyday, garden variety kind of presidential flying office, the doomsday plane is built and equipped to keep the US government running in the event of a nuclear war or other disaster.

DENVER- Colorado’s Department of Motor Vehicles mistakenly issued U.S. citizen driver’s licenses to 524 non-citizens, including some illegal immigrants, CBS4 has learned. The licenses look like those given to state residents. The DMV blamed a software problem at a contractor, who is working with DMV to retrieve the licenses and re-issue correct IDs. The licenses were mailed at the beginning of September. The contractor said it learned on Sept. 8 that the printing error occurred Aug. 8. “What happened is there was a software update error on the part of the vendor,” said Director of Dept. of Revenue Barbara Brohl.

A day after Secretary of State John Kerry cautioned against "war fever," administration officials on Friday said the U.S. is indeed waging a war against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS, otherwise known as ISIL). However, the administration is still trying to draw a distinction between this new "war" and the previous war the U.S. waged in Iraq, which included putting American troops on the ground in Iraq for combat operations. "The United States is at war with ISIL in the same way that we are at war with al Qaeda and its al Qaeda affiliates all around

Qua speech, Barack Obama’s address Wednesday on the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria was surprisingly terrible: a disorganized mess, insincere and unconvincing. To appreciate just how bad and bizarre it was, compare the president’s speech announcing a new air campaign in Iraq and Syria to Dwight Eisenhower’s 1958 statement on his decision to intervene in Lebanon with 14,000—14,000!—troops. The statement contains no chest-thumping about America’s leadership in science and medicine. No pivot to the auto industry and medical research. Eisenhower simply explained what had been done, and why.

SAN DIEGO — African-American elementary students in California were chronically truant at nearly four times the rate of all students during the last school year, according to a state report released Friday. The report by the California Attorney General´s office is the first time the data has been broken down according to race and income levels. Officials say such data is needed to address the problem. Poverty and suspensions are contributing factors. Overall, more than 250,000 elementary school students missed 10 percent or more of the 2013-2014 school year or roughly 18 or more school days.

Throughout his presidency, President Obama has emphasized one point while talking about Islamist extremists: They are not practicing Islam, he has said, they are perverting it. He took that a step further Wednesday night. While announcing that he´s expanding the campaign against the Islamic State extremist group into Syria, Obama said flatly that this group, which is trying to install a caliphate in the Middle East, "is not Islamic." He didn´t say they are perverting their religion; he said they´re not even part of that religion.

Body odour is among 52 criteria that officials at San Diego International Airport use to judge taxi drivers. Cabbies say that smacks of prejudice and discrimination. It does discriminate between cabbies who smell like an open sewer and those who don’t. It further prejudges what a good smell is.
