    Amazing how a guy who has THREE degrees — one more than Obama, incidentally — has such objections to higher education. Must be a snob.

    Remember that SNOB is an abbreviation for the Latin “Sine Nobilis”" or “Without Nobility” – fits nicely IMHO!

    It’s too bad the only great thinkers being taught about are Marx, Engels, Alinsky, et. al.

    Books/texts about the really great thinkers are gathering dust in university libraries’ stacks and archives, seldom seeing the light of day.They just aren’t PC enough for today’s crowd of NON-thinkers.

    Hard to believe that Marx, Engels, are considered great thinkers since there are no examples of their thinking being successful but many examples of their thinking being tragically unsuccessful.

    Nonsense. I’m a snob who went to college, And I never studied those. Just yesterday I listened to a discussion of Benjamin Franklin. Is he American enough for you?

    You say only Marx, Engels, and Alinsky are read in universities? Remarkable. Is everything you say so uninformed?

    My students read Homer, Aeschylus, Sophocles, Euripides, Herodotus, Thucydides, Aristophanes, Plato, and Aristotle, for starters, on the Greek side, then Plautus, Terence, Catullus, Lucretius, Cicero, Caesar, Vergil, Horace, Propertius, and Ovid on the Latin side. And some students (not enough) study the original languages. And I’m one of those dreaded tenured radicals.

    It’s funny, in a sad kind of way, to read the posts above from Bill Ewing and Libby Times, and realize that Santorum actually has an audience that is ignorant enough to agree with him! This inconsequential little twit is playing on this ignorance, willfully going along with the dumbing down of this once great nation, to appeal to these shallow, resentful, small minded ignoramuses to try to get himself elected. Pennsylvanians took a few years before they realized that they had elected a 13th Century mind to represent them in the senate and then dumped him unceremoniously in a landslide election. The larger country will not be fooled so easily and this odious little vermin can crawl back under the rock where he was spawned. Hopefully he’ll take the Bill Ewing’s and Libby Times and Tiggers with him so this country can begin to move forward again. If it is snobbery to find this kind of ignorance distateful…then, please, call me a snob!

    My “great one” as far as philosophy and morality goes, is Jesus. I already know what conservatives think of his teaching.

    From my observation of right wingers and their relationship to Jesus is the opposite of what was published in the Bible.

    There’s a real problem today with Government AND business thinking that you need a piece of paper to be able to actually DO something.
    My dad was a structural engineering technician w/out a degree, whose last 10 years in practice was to check the work of all the other PEs in the office (including two Phd’s). My Brother is Vice President of Engineering, West Coast, for a company that manufactures hard drive assembly and QC gear. Guess what? The only formal training he got was in the Navy in optical systems repair.
    I have a BA in studio art (metal & jewelery), but have been a civil engineering technician for the last 25 years.
    The degree means only what others think it means and nothing more. It’s a shame so many can’t get past the idea that if you don’t have a piece of paper with fancy writing on it you can’t think or DO anything.
