I'd love to see the same graph representing income instead of education. I know multiple people who make more than I do with no more than a high school degree or just "some college" whereas I know plenty of masters < that make less than I do. Education is not always a good representation of success. My most successful friend didn't finish his last year in aerospace engineering because he already had many job opportunities without it and now does the job of a senior executive on some serious $$$ military contracts.

I also know some folks that are highly educated but have 0 real world experience. I know a girl who's highly intelligent with multiple masters (none in a science though) yet she has zero world experience and can't get a job anywhere other than being a teacher. She's stuck in a state of perpetual schooling and falls in your line of highly educated democrat, but at the same time I wouldn't trust her with a fraction of the responsibility I trust some of my junior enlisted kids that work on our aircraft (thus are responsible in part of my life).

So in conclusion, education is hardly a measure of aptitude and usefulness to society.

Since she voted for Trump, I suspect Aquina is a russian, nazi, antisemite self-loathing anti LGBT racist.

and probably hates spagetti O's . . . . so anti american!

Just because someone has a degree that doesn't any less then an idiot.

I know people with college degrees who don't know how to work a washing machine/dryer, change a light bulb, change a car battery, don't know what a fuse box is, can't fix a flat tire, can't navigate without their GPS, etc. The list goes on.

They might be educated but they sure as shit lack common sense and how to do basic things.

Do you know what post-graduate degree even means? lmao

It's important for low-skilled workers to get an education to further enhance their skills. It's better to have skills, then not.

It sounds like your friends took the time to become more skilled, you chose a different path.

So what are you gonna do with your 'Liberal Arts Degree'. Maybe you can put smiley faces on the McDonald's burgers with the mustard. Use pickles for eyes. Get really creatiive and use the lettuce for hair. People will appreciate your talent.

Screw the numbers, charts, the focus groups, the post-mortems, Trump won for one very singular reason - Her. Full Stop.
If American girls were looking for a well rounded female role model in this election cycle, they certainly found one.

I wasn't responding to your Post Graduate lie. I was just wondering what you were going to accomplish with your Liberal Arts Degree. No one is saying you have to work at McDonalds but you gotta start somewhere. After a couple of years, maybe you can move up the ladder of success and work at Captain D's.
