53% is actually a good number

consider that way less than 53% of the recruited college athletes go on to earn a living as a Sport Pro.

the conveyor belt of corporations using individuals is evident when you look at college BBall, FootBall and definitely wrestling....my guess is that 80% of the 'athletes' get a college education minimum education for their needed services with the team and are tossed out with little fanfare... but little more than a 'network' of sports related people they nurtured in a short 4 yr college career

Wow, so black and white in your world.

So what about the people who earn, say, $200k? They are not millionaires, and they're not in the welfare line. So are they lazy or hard workers?

I'm not gonna take a guess at what political party you support, because this kind of brain-dead ignorance to reality seems to follow one group of people around like a bad smell, and everyone knows the deal with that.

My point is that plenty of people, just like you, seem to think it's between those who work damn hard for what they have, and those who don't try at all. There's no one in-between at all.

Do you suggest that the banker, sitting behind his desk and telling people to make decisions for them, somehow works harder that a fire fighter? Or are they more deserving than that fire fighter?

I'm guessing that you, yourself, are either a millionaire, or are you texting this in from your welfare line?

Good, I'm glad to see these figures.

You're 25 years old and you haven't contributed anything to society. Mom and dad put you thru college, they helped you as much as they could.

Now you're on your own, lost and helpless like a child.

No real skills, no talent and no future.

From your response ive deduced that you are a baby boomer or in that age range and we (under 30) should thank you for letting the country get to the point it is. Thank You for YOUR hard work and dedication to society!!!

Can I also ask about your "real world" where the sons and daughters of wealthy politicians and business men go to some over-priced school, and basically BUY a couple of good results, then are immediately given everything for the rest of their life simply because who their daddy was?

Are they hard working and somehow more "worthy" than the hipster NY kid who has just worked every day from 5pm to 2am to pay FOR THEMSELVES to go through college, to come out at the end of it with no opportunities?

You know, they say ignorance is bliss, but it's certainly no excuse.

Tell it like it is.

I'm sick of the baby boomers treating people of my generation like helpless children when they too, are helpless children!

The irony is that these people marched against the Vietnam War and their response to OWS is to call younger folks "slackers" and "thugs".

You know what? They sold themselves and this country out once Reagan showed up.

Go to a trade school if you think you have some kind of physical talent (electrical work, plumbing, general mechanical work).

If you know what's in demand and you can cobble together the money, try a 2 year college.

I can't recommend a full-time, 4 year college degree to anyone at this point because the job market is constantly shifting. If you know what you want and you're willing to pay to get it, go for it.

For me, college was a no-brainer due to my dedication to education. I just regret that I didn't pick a better field of study. Society frowns upon environmentalists and also scientists at this point.
