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!".

The childhood home of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis is for sale in Manhattan at $44 million. The recently renovated 1929 duplex retains its traditional architecture but has been updated with modern finishes and a contemporary look. The 17-story Art Deco building was designed by architects Arthur Loomis Harmon and Rosario Candela, who made a name for himself designing apartments in New York City in the 1920s. Candela’s name is often associated with luxury buildings and coveted addresses. Onassis’ grandfather, James T. Lee, was the builder.

Jeddah (Saudi Arabia)- King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia has warned that the West will be the next target of the jihadists sweeping through Syria and Iraq, unless there is "rapid" action. "If we ignore them, I am sure they will reach Europe in a month and America in another month," he said in remarks quoted on Saturday by Asharq al-Awsat daily and Saudi-backed Al-Arabiya television station.

Even the most ardent immigrant rights advocates are saying it: Reform legislation is dead this year — and for the foreseeable future. With that in mind, all eyes have shifted to the White House, where President Obama is weighing unilateral changes to his immigration policies in the face of congressional inaction. In March, the president asked the Department of Homeland Security to review its approach to deportations in search of blanket ways to conduct them "more humanely." With the results of that review – and Obama´s subsequent policy response – expected next month, both sides of the immigration debate are

ISIS is a cancer that must be stamped out, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry wrote Saturday in an opinion piece for The New York Times. Kerry called the Islamist extremist group, known for beheadings, crucifixions and terror campaigns against religious and ethnic minorities, a "unifying threat to a broad array of countries" that needs to be confronted. His article appears in the aftermath of the political uproar that engulfed the White House this week after President Barack Obama said "we don´t have a strategy" on ISIS in Syria.

When the Coachella Valley football team takes the field against Rancho Mirage High for its season opener on Friday night, the mascot will be absent.

The state Senate on Friday gave final legislative approval to a measure that would phase out single-use plastic bags in supermarkets, pharmacies and convenience stores as part of an effort to rid beaches and streets of litter. The measure, which now goes to Gov. Jerry Brown for consideration, would allow stores to charge customers 10 cents to provide paper or reusable plastic bags as an alternative to single-use bags. California would be the first state government to approve such a ban although the bags are outlawed throughout Hawaii because of local jurisdiction laws. Sen.

NEWPORT, R.I.— President Barack Obama on Friday blamed dysfunction in Congress on a Republican Party he said is captive to an ideologically rigid, unproductive and cynical faction, urging like-minded Democrats to show up for November´s midterm elections. Addressing Democratic donors at a fundraiser in Rhode Island and another in New York, Obama said Republicans had realized that blocking all progress led Americans to become cynical about government. Republicans consider that "a pretty good thing" because they don´t believe in government to begin with, Obama said.

During the Great Depression, the Communist scribes at the Daily Worker were forever assuring the more skeptical among their colleagues that the heroic spark was near. Having read about a “small riot somewhere in rural Minnesota,” Whittaker Chambers recorded in Witness, Robert Minor started shouting about “the beginning of the American revolution.” If the paper wished to capitalize upon dissatisfaction and spin it into insurrection and change, Minor proposed, it would need the staff to keep an eye out for the tell-tale sign and, then, to “play it up big.” Over the past month, the events in Ferguson, Mo., have played

This is not merely snatching defeat from the jaws of victory -- this is snatching defeat from the bowels of victory -- in astonishing tone-deaf fashion.

At least four hostages held in Syria by the Islamic State, including an American journalist who was recently executed by the group, were waterboarded in the early part of their captivity, according to people familiar with the treatment of the kidnapped Westerners. James Foley was among the four who were waterboarded several times by Islamic State militants who appeared to model the technique on the CIA’s use of waterboarding to interrogate suspected terrorists after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. The victims of waterboarding are often strapped down on gurneys or benches while cold water is poured over a cloth covering

Watching the events unfold in Ferguson, Missouri, I can’t help thinking about the Holocaust and post-war Germany. As the daughter of a Holocaust survivor, I’ve spent years watching Germany wrestle with its dark past. It’s just one of many places that have made efforts to understand and compensate for a difficult history: For nearly three decades, countries as varied as South Africa, Rwanda, and the nations of Latin America and post-Communist Eastern Europe have been engaged in this process, often called “transitional justice.” That’s a broad term for the ways in which societies deal with the legacies of past injustice.
