education is not always the answer. remember when das newt wanted to make every one an entrepeneur? that would not work out either. no why? there is
always some one who must sweep up, fix something, clean, cook etc...
these people need to live, don't they?
and do not forget that one can have a good job, "oops, sorry, we had to downsize and your job is moving to india as well." and as some before said,
then the ceo gets a massive pay out.
i am not entirely sure on the quote/reply to rules in this forum, but i quoted because i wanted to reply to a few points in this post.
but education IS the answer, and it NEVER hurts to educated... remember what they would say on the after school specials all the time.... "knowlege
is power" the smarter you are, the more capable you will be of making intelligent thought out decisions in your life. therefore allowing you more
opporunity to succeed in life.
the people who are meant to flip burgers and scrub bus stop toilets are high school kids who are just making some money to go out and have fun over
the weekend. those are not the kind of jobs that are intended to gainfully employ an adult, or enable them to support a family. they just aren't
there for that... the only reason people work in those jobs, is because something happened in their life where they couldn't complete their
education, or they lacked the drive to be better than one of those jobs. I would never personally take one of those jobs, because even when i was in
highschool, i always thought myself to be worth more, or worthy of more than that.
they do need to live, but being alive does not entitle you to a comfortable care free life, when has it EVER been like that? if your answer to that is
never, then why is it all of a sudden that people think that being alive DOES entitle you to a comfortable, care free life? i think it has a lot to do
with people letting the government get out of control, and so rediculously HUGE.
i have a motto that i like to live by when it comes to helping people out (and i may sound like a dickhead but i am a very nice person, who would give
the shirt off my back if i knew it would make someone more comfortable.) it is:
"I am here to give you a helping hand, not a hand out."
