    Mighty broad brush we're using here. And I have a lot of friends and family that you would seemingly dismiss as "white trash ignorant rednecks". What exactly makes them trashy and ignorant? Voting for Trump? Disagreeing with immigration reform? Watching NASCAR and drinking Miller Lite?

    Haha - you just discredited yourself with the "Miller Lite". Everyone knows that Bud is the choice of true rednecks ;-)

    I think that the idea that that's the only way to succeed is ignorant though.

    This is a bit of a strawman, as I don't think most say it's the only way to succeed. But a college education certainly makes the possibility more likely versus no college education.

    You'd be surprised... If you have one, you don't really get the condescending comments.
    And I agree that it makes the possibility of success more likely. But is isn't because the degree makes one a better employee. I know an attorney that couldn't pass a GED, no idea how he passed the bar. I've seen engineers who couldn't fix a sandwich. From a hiring standpoint an UG degree is just a way to say someone is at least invested in becoming a success. If you don’t have the money, and don’t want to be buried in debt, you’ve got a tough road ahead in todays job market but it can be very rewarding if you're willing to do the work. And not everyone is college material. We have to keep jobs here to provide that opportunity for people who aren’t a good fit for college. A point that seems lost by the left.
