    Not everyone is college material. Some of the journeymen that I have had come to remodel,
    repair and add to my home make pretty good money. Some eventually have their own businesses.
    Encouraging college for everybody isn't necessarily good and doesn't always work out.
    A lot are following in "dad's footsteps' and are being trained from an early age on 'how too'.
    Aptitude testing when entering high school may serve a better purpose in helping young people
    really find the path they should follow with a re-visit before graduating and some exposure
    to what they thought they would like to do.
    Unfortunately to many classes have been discontinued that could assist in finding that path with so many aimed at getting into college.

    Anything to get the Pressure off ACA Obamacare and other events that are weighing down Michelle's heart. She has been living such a dream since she was finally happy about being in the United States of America after her husband's elections and crowing glory of Nobel Peace Prize before his first day of office.

    It is not easy being the President, especially when honest and true to the President's word for our whole country.

    In the military we called this diversionary tactics. They needed a Strategic Plan from day one and not shooting from the hip. Executive skills come from doing and being involved and not just doing what the advisers and pundits want you to do. Integrity is part of the reason a person raises their arm and pledges to go by the Constitution of the United States of America. You don't just become a constitutional attorney or lawyer in college to figure ways around the Constitution inspired to Founding Fathers who took to heart their task to write a valued document still standing after 200 plus years.

    It is not a document of man.

    The right and left flanks still need protection from harm.

    As long as the quantity of college graduates equal quality, will the US have first rate college graduates. However, the truism is, as First Lady Obama indicated, that two people being equal in ability and intellect, the educated one will have an advantage over the one not educated.

    Seriously? I am sorry you can claim you were referring to student loans etc. but the second half of your comment confirms the fact your first comment was off topic.

    Come now, SS. Surely you can see the value of my suggestion; reviewing mortgage documents, student loans, legislation...
    We would all be better off if we didn't sign it first to see what's in it.

    @say no
    How about actually addressing the content of the article instead of vague off topic references about other subjects?

    How about an initiative in reading the fine print?
