    Default The left sneers at those who do not have college degrees.

    The next time you lefties need your car repaired, plumber, electrician, general maintenance man or any of the myriad of professions that require specialized training and not a sheep skin. Insist that they be college educated then see how long it takes to get the needed repairs. College is great for many professions but often technical schools are just as demanding when it comes to knowledge and intelligence as many college degree programs. So sneer at the poor uneducated boob fixing your plumbing making $40 an hour with no student debt. Yea a college degree really makes one superior. I have an advanced Bachelors degree so I am speaking from experience.

    You make up stupid shit and then create a thread to show your creativity. But the facts and truth always elude you. Your degree is proof that thick headed rightys can bluff their way through college and stay as ignorant as they were as freshmen.

    Isn't it true that many on the left claim to "champion the poor" and "care about the average American" and then mocks those who "shop at Walmart", live in "flyover country" etc.?

    That is your idea of a relevant post? Of course, it is. that is all you can bring. Makeup shit and insult. A genuine bottom-feeder.

    Plumbers, electricians, and stay at home mothers are honorable work.

    What I generally object to is abject ignorance. Plenty of blue collar workers are smart, self taught, and life long learners.

    Plenty of dudes with Ph.D.s thought invading Iraq was going to be the most awesome idea ever.
    Plenty of dudes with Masters degrees thought the George Dumbya Bush economy was performing admirably up until early 2008.
    While plenty of people with only high school degrees understood in a visceral way that invading Iraq was a dumb ass idea, and that the Bush economy was built on debt, and doing nothing for average working Americans.

    Wrapping up: before you even have standing to complain about this, you need to practice what you preach. Plenty of Trump boot-lickers yucked it up about John Kerry because he was fluent in French, and spoke like an Ivy League college graduate. What you wanted was a dumb ass president who seemed like you could have a beer with him.

    If you are going to mock higher education, if you are going to support anti-intellectualism, then you have no standing to cry about those who mock the poorly educated.

    Whether one supported or didn’t support the Iraq War has absolutely nothing to do with how those without college degrees today are viewed. That’s just stupid.

    Let’s just cut to the chase, this is all about partisanship. If you are white, don’t have a college degree and hold conservative political beliefs you will be mocked by liberals like Cypress. If you are a minority without a college degree, are anti-intellectual but vote Democratic you will get a pass. It’s not about disliking ignorance, it’s disliking those who don’t vote how you would like them to.

    Stop making stuff up. I don't have one myself, and never will. College is a waste if you don't look at what's out there, and aim towards the right stuff. If you get training for a job not in high demand, you will wait a long time to see anything fruit from it. Normally without it though, you may tend to be left with grunt work, and working your way up.

    Just what am I making up Jade? How many posts have you seen on JPP that say blue states are better educated and more intelligent than red states. So what is your problem?
