In my experience, I have seen that engineers with a BSEE and the additional 2 years of real world experience to be much more useful than MSEE degrees. And it seems like a greater percentage of MSEEs were useless types who could study/test well but not actually deliver any solutions.

I look at the return on investment on a MSEE, and I don't see it. You lose 2 years of income, which you take off the end of your career when you earn the most (100+K/yr), and pay an $50+K for the two years of tuition. You wind up in an >$300K hole, and the premium from having an MSEE doesn't really compensate.

Let me ask you as a hiring manager: which would you prefer, an engineer with a BSEE and 2 years of experience doing the job you need, or someone with an MSEE who may have taken a class about what you need?

Its not like the current Administration is concerned about the rights of its citizens, they are making Bush Jr look like a staunch civil liberties advocate

Someone's memory is awfully short. Renditions, torture, and the Patriot Act are just some of the actions of Bush Jr. I just don't see any significant expansion into civil liberty violations by Obama. Now, don't get me wrong, I don't think Obama has done anything notable to improve on the civil rights violations introduced by Bush, but I don't see anything like what Bush cooked up being introduced either.
