We Don't need no Education

I just realized this was a title of a post I'd done many months ago...I guess that post also had to do with a certain political party not recognizing the value of education. Now here is another post, about a certain political party not recognizing the value of education.

Well, here it is in a nutshell. To those people that are so afraid of our President giving their children advice on why it might be a great idea to remain in school and excel educationally as far as their intelligence will allow, well, keep your kids home. I don't care because even if you deprive your children of a chance to become inspired and perhaps excel beyond your educational level, that's a family issue, within your family.

Me, I'm happy, because so many parents will allow their children to become inspired by our President's speech and they will go on to make advances in medicine, technology, and a whole lot of other fields that will benefit me.

To the parents that keep their children home and ignorant of the importance of education. That's okay too, because the US military-industrial-war-machine always welcomes C students and dropouts as "fresh meat" in their latest war, heck they even recruit them heavily at the local Army/Navy/Marine office here in my town. Wal-Mart also needs your underachieving children; it welcomes them with open arms and pays them $7.15 per hour with NO BENEFITS. Same with any fast food joint.

Here's my heartfelt "thank you" to the parents that keep their kids from hearing Obama's inspirational speech tomorrow.

I'm very happy to know that there will always be dupes to fight unjust wars for me, sell me cheap crap at Wal-Mart and hand me my favorite "guilty" fast food snack through the drive thru window of my local burger joint. These servants will always be here for me because their parents denied the importance of education.

Actually, really, thank you, thank you and thank you again to the parents that are fearful of Obama's pro-education message, because I don't know what life would be like without having your little underachievers in MY life.

Please, keep your kids home, perhaps watching Faux News with you...yes, please do, because if you let these kids get educated, well, it may very well create a disturbance in MY way of life and that is just too horrible to comprehend.


  1. As the manager of a fast food resturant in Canada who took the time to print out and pass out the Presidents speach to my student staff members I resent the implication that fast food is for dummies. Currently I have on staff 3 university freshmen all of whom are studing science. All of whom are paying their own tuiton thanks to the job they have and have had since their freshman year of high school. Please don't not continue the myth that those in fast food can't get work elsewhere due to lacking intelligence. I personally have a Bacholar of Business Degree. ( dosen't help my spelling though, but i'm spoiled by spell checker programs).

  2. I've worked fast food myself, and know that dummies don't go far in that industry. However, I have no college degree, and that seriously limits my choices, my options. And that's the key word: options. Education gives options you just don't have without it.

    Good careers can be made in fast food. You have a college degree in business, and are putting it to good use in your chosen profession. I imagine that your degree has been a real plus to you in that career.

    As for your student workers, they're studying science. It's doubtful they plan on making fast food their career or they'd be studying business administration.

    For many people, fast food is a workable step towards other endeavors. It brings in cash, and the schedule can be worked around one's school schedule.

    Options. They come with education.
