This article would be incredible but unfortunately it’s not.
If one is not planning an advanced degree a bachelor’s degree is little more than a ticket to join the rat race to mediocrity.
Two years are clearly enough at a junior college, then think about trade schools.
How many millionaires can’t fix their own cars or appliances because most everything has become computerized?
Look no further than Cal Berkeley as a perfect example.

Few students matriculate from Berkeley in the social sciences, women’s studies, and African American Studies that will add little more to their communities than more left-wing zealots and community organizers.
As a California taxpayer I would love to see the entire university shut down until its radical administration can can be replaced with one that will be more moderate, a tough job indeed when one considers their replacements probably have never worked a day in the private sector since their last paper route.

Day after day we need to battle the absurd Marxism that is destroying our schools and colleges.
It is hard to believe that it took a long drawn out legal battle just to retain this basic right given to us by our founders.
What is worse, it is luck.
It could have turned out a whole lot differently had they not settled.
Luck of the draw apparently.
After a two-year battle, the Los Angeles Community College District has agreed to abolish a policy that limited student expression to “free speech zones,” available only through application.
Pierce College student Kevin Shaw was handing out Spanish-language copies of the U.S. Constitution in November 2016 when an administrator told him that he would have to confine his activity to the school’s “free speech zone.”
The school told Shaw that he would have to apply for access to the 616-square foot zone and that his failure to comply would result in his removal from campus.
On Wednesday, the Los Angeles Community College District agreed to settle the lawsuit, as well as to revoke the unconstitutional policy that recognized all campuses within the district as “non-public forums,” effectively removing free speech restrictions placed on 150,000 students, according to the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE).
“I wish it hadn’t taken two years for my school to conclude I had a right to free expression,” Shaw told Campus Reform.
“All the same, I’m thankful to know future students won’t have to worry about being harassed for expressing political opinions.”
