He is speaking at a college for christ sake. Don't any of you think at least 85% of the people there are  more educated then us?
I don't know about anyone else, but I have two degrees, one of which is a Masters, and a handful of graduate diplomas.

I love how people think simply because they attended college they are so much more intelligent than everyone else. What they fail to mention is they majored in fine arts, drama, philosophy, English lit or some other useless study which will not be benificial in most real life situations unless they plan on being a teacher.

I'm not talking about you, Wearer of Hats. You are a very reasonable person and I don't believe I've ever seen you being condescending to anyone. You don't flaunt your education or use it to demean others. :tu:

Do not get me wrong. I delivered Pepsi, and at a lot of the stores, the Managers had degrees, and I was making more then they were.( learned this when I used to say " should have went to college " in conversations.)

And, there are MANY people more educated then myself, and many that are " smarter " when it comes to higher education.

The only thing that a higher education gives you is that you become more susceptible to the *Con*.

I noticed this too after completing my BBus. You always seem to leave College with a liberal political slant. It took me a few years of the real world to set me right.

And some who are self taught and learned from practical application or experience. I've had doctors ask me what formal education I've had because I learned a great deal while taking care of my Mother in her last ten years. It was prudent to become educated in her care.

I know what you mean.

I've got some college education under my belt. The first time I went to college, I was able to get the degrees so I could teach English Lit. and History. I actually, went back to school so I could become an occupational/physical therapist for children, but I wasn't able to finish due to money reasons. When my son gets older, I definitely wanna go back to college. I love learning.
Now, my husband, has a GED and has never been to college. But the man is the smartest guy I've ever known. And his knowledge is useful in real life! He can do anything, figure anything out. He can get fix ANYTHING, make anything. He's just like my dad in that respect. People need to realize, there are different levels of intellect. Some people, like me, are book smart. People like my husband are life smart. :)
