  1. This is the reason why Democrats have seen to it to make the schools “dumb factories” where kids go to become dumb, and that is dumb as the dumbest Black since they are the whole reason why the government got so involved with public education to begin with. The liberals wanted to make sure the Whites weren’t making the tests to hard so that the failure rate of Blacks could be kept at a level where they wouldn’t look like they were as dumb as they really were. It didn’t take long for the truth about Black to surface when they were allowed to invade the non-Black public education system. Once integration was complete the truth began to come out when the Blacks were subjected to what everyone else were having to deal with for generations. Blacks were totally unprepared for the difficulty of getting a real education compared to what they were getting in their own schools.

    Keep the kids dumb and you can guarantee that they wil always be unemployed or underemployed and on government subsistance and you’ll have Democrats in office forever. Because if conservative Republicans ever get a chance to change all of that they might start making Blacks get off their butts and get an education so that they can be employed. The Welfare Reform Act did exactly that. It started putting thousands of Blacks to work who had not been employed before, but had to go to work before their Welfare checks stopped, because that was the Reform was that checks would stop, and Blacks didn’t like that, but that was to bad.
    Soon Blacks found out what White people had been telling them for years and that was Democrats were paying for keeping all the dumb Blacks on Welfare by taxing the hell out fo working people. They decided to get out of the Democrat Party and join the Republican Party so as to put a stop to the taxes and force more Blacks to work and after awhile Blacks would be just as educated as Whites or anyone else and would be the productive and prosperous citizens they thought they were by just being Black that Democrats had told them they were. And they would know that it takes work and education if you want something out of life, and no goverment could ever provide those things you wanted by taking the money to pay for those things from people who were working, by continuously taxing the hell out of working people.

  2. While this article provides certain facts favoring higher education and its ability to rake in more cash, the sad reality is todays college graduate has no job force to walk into after graduation.

    Joe Queenan (MSN Money) described the environment that 2010 college graduates would walk into as they entered the real world;

    “They will enter an economy where roughly 17% of people aged 20 through 24 do not have a job, and where two million college graduates are unemployed. They will enter a world where they will compete tooth and nail for jobs as waitresses, pizza delivery men, file clerks, bouncers, trainee busboys, assistant baristas, interns at bodegas.”

    But it’s actually much worse, when application after application goes unanswered. According to a 2011 article written by the Huffington Post, one graduates efforts to land a job was described this way, “Seventy-five job applications. Forty cover letters. Twelve interviews. Zero job offers. Since graduating from Wellesley College four years ago, Kayla Calkin, 25, has yet to get a break.” Calkin has a Masters degree. She is employed as a nanny.

    And here is something your chart would reflect, if it were current: “According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics’ Current Population Survey, the unemployment rate for college graduates between the ages of 20 to 24-year-olds soared five percentage points in the past month — from 7.1 percent in May to 12.1 percent in June, compared with a three percent jump during the same period last year.”

    Just to keep up with the population growth, 125,000 new jobs are needed every month. We aren’t even able to that, let alone create enough jobs for college graduates with hefty student loans to pay off. That alone has many asking if the expense of a college degree is worth it anymore.
