@MeGrendel: Exactly. STEM majors have been on the decline in the US for a while now.



STEM majors are harder than their artsy counterparts, plain and simple, but why are so many students taking these useless degrees when they must know they aren't getting hired with them?

keith2-"If you want my real opinion, the real way out of this mess is education, education, and more education! I'm talking about the hard stuff. "

Agreed, and by the 'hard stuff' you mean engineering, math, science, etc. No more 'women's studies' or 'aboriginal macrame pot-holder' degrees. If you graduated with a degree in Mime, then you deserve to deliver pizzas for the rest of your life.

You call Chavez a dictator? Really?

@HolyGod: You truely know NOTHING about Hugo Chavez my friend!
Saddam Hussain won "free and fair elections" with 99.5% of the vote!
Fidel Castro won "free and fair" elections all the time! Of course anyone who tried to run against him was thrown in jail...
& etc.

@HolyGod try a little "wiki-wisdom" before saying something as BLINDLY STUPID as that, eh?

"MSNBC calls it Obamacare."

I guess MSNBC doesn't have as good a memory as the African American community.

"You don't use the negative term Obamacare in front of a black audience if you want to win back some of the 90% from Obama."

MSNBC calls it Obamacare. What's wrong with it?

Also, Chavez is a ruthless dictator that killed dissenters when he gained power. The people cower in fear of him.

You call Chavez a dictator? Really? I don't know terribly much about him but isn't he an extremely popular leader that was freely elected in a fair election by a wide majority?

So was Hitler. What's you're point?

@ultimakewl considering romney is both
i think it speaks the worst for him


Man, you failed HARD on that one. Did you even READ the question? The reason people have foreign bank accounts is that the IRS confiscates a huge chunk of the money you earn overseas if you are stupid enough to bring it back into the US. Are you saying, then, that Romney PERSONALLY wrote those idiotic tax laws and got them into to the IRS code all by himself without approval of congress or the president?

2. Now you are really comparing misspelling a word in a foreign language to misspelling your own country?

@HolyGod: The #3 person in the USA (more or less) presents a token/gift to the #2 Superpower IN THE WORLD and it's F-ING SPELLED WRONG?
YES! That is 100X MORE dratted up than a tiny typo on a candidate's web page (or wherever it was).

In diplomatic terms it was a slap in the face with a cold flounder...

To the people who are saying it was fine for Mitt to tell the NAACP audience that he would eliminate Obamacare, I don't think you quite understand or you are spinning this one on purpose. What the audience was upset with is Mitt's use of the negative term that conservatives created to personally attack Obama on his Health Care Reform "Obamacare". You don't use the negative term Obamacare in front of a black audience if you want to win back some of the 90% from Obama. If he would have used the actual name of the reform he would have been fine. I question his judgement in something so glaringly obvious.

"I feel for my conservative friends. They have a not-Obama candidate. Just like Liberals had a not-Bush candidate in John Kerry. It is very hard to win an election when your people are voting to not have four more years of the other guy instead of voting for you."

This is actually very true. I had this in Kerry. It sucked.

And since this is the most recent "War for the White House" thread I see, let me add a dumb prediction.

Bain Capital sounds like the badguy from Batman this summer. Everyone will see Batman. Bane will be a bad name. Romney was the sole owner, CEO, and President of Bain Capital. People who know nothing of politics won't like that. And there are a LOT of those who vote. Just keep saying "Bane" and "Romney" together.

However, sarcasm aside, the jobs aren't coming back because not only do China and India have a labor force who are willing to work for next to free, both of those countries have many more engineers and scientists per capita than the U.S. If you want my real opinion, the real way out of this mess is education, education, and more education! I'm talking about the hard stuff. I have faith in the generation growing up on internet, because I see more and more of the younger generation calling each other out on stupidity and ignorance of facts online and more kids who want to be smarter than the rest. Engineering and science are becoming more and more appealing to our youth. This is what might save us from our own destruction.

"He only got into Harvard because of his skin colour."

Yeah, and became editor of the Harvard Law Review, and fricken President of the United States, all because he was black.

America. You are talking about America, home of the KKK and the Confederacy. Home of the Jim Crow law and state-sanctioned segregation until 1964.

Obama fu*cking won Virginia, Ohio, and Florida. Don't minimize his education when his record blows your bullcrap affirmative action argument out of the water.

You won't accept it, but Obama is master politician with sure convictions who does what he says. He worked your asses with Obamacare - legislatively and in the Courts. He is DESTROYING Romney on the Bain Capital issue - yeah, signing SEC filings as "sole owner, CEO, and president" until 2002 really squares with the "I had no involvement with outsourcing at Bain in 2000-2002" line.

g-jerry, thank you for making the same point I was, but without the sarcasm for those who missed the point such as yourself.

$6 dollars an hour, for 40 hours a week, for 52 weeks in a year = $12,480. Awesome! Let's have a country where Rich-Guy keith2 can get richer surrounding himself by an army of angry poor people employees. They'll agree with his economic view. They'll say, "Boy, that keith2, with his 'smartest and richest of business men' thinking, he MUST have my best interests in mind! I'll vote for the guy who wants my cousin and sister to make less money so that keith2 can decide to keep my job in America! What a fuc*ing Patriot!"

That always works out well, politically speaking.

Obviously. It is much easier to get rich by exploiting the weak, you're right. Nicely done!

Obama obviously doesn't get how jobs are created. They won't work here, so all jobs MUST be shipped overseas. Not until we do away with minimum wage. The smartest and richest of business men would pay you less, but that would be illegal! Until we fix that, the jobs are gone and aren't coming back.

1. The reset button gift was completely stupid to begin with and made me cringe.

2. Now you are really comparing misspelling a word in a foreign language to misspelling your own country?

... But one is a massive and ironic f.uckup and the other is just your average everyday typo.

MeGrendel

"typos are easy to do and easy to miss."
Agreed.

Nor do I think Obama, nor Romney, personally oversaw the creation of either.
Absolutely.

Romney's was done by a web-designer, Obama's by this organization.
I differ here. It probably took a team of people to put those Romney graphics together and approve it. The Obama post was probably just one person updating a page with event info.

So neither is representative of the intelligence of either.
Absolutely agreed.

But if you can't see the difference between misspelling your own country vs. a foreign one, a team missing a typo vs just a person or two, missing it on something for distribution and mass consumption vs. a post few people would really see, and a large headline vs. a word in a line of copy than I don't know what to tell you. They are different. Way different. Neither one is indicative of anything. Nor really news. But one is a massive and ironic f.

lolz @MeGrendel: Yeah, that was a bad moment!

And you're correct, the main (only?) difference is how the MSM Hawks on one side while it Doves the other...
