But all studies show that education is one of the strongest links to success that exist, and lack of education one of the strongest correlations of failure and poverty.
For entrepreneurs, a little education is better than too much education.
Not all opinions are based on facts. Donald Trump is a perfect example of that.
uninformed opinions is turning our cops into blathering idiots.
Wow, 100.. That makes it less likely than winning the lottery.
Students are trained to beat the test (i.e., always having the right answer), which inhibits risk-taking because they don't want to be failures. Students who are already considered failures by the education system aren't afraid to take risks. You can't succeed in business unless you're willing to take risk and hire people smarter than you.
Do you always refer to parents as "Mommy and Daddy" or just when you're being a condescending dick?
Only when I'm an asshole (which is why I work in IT).
Back in the 1960's, corporations had training programs. The bean counters in the 1980's eliminated everything that didn't add value directly to the bottom line. The cost of training people to become employees got shifted to the public school and colleges. These days you need a college degree to get hired on as a filing clerk.
Please point me to one person in the past 100 years that achieved success with exactly no education at all and no help from anyone else.
A successful person doesn't have to be the smartest person in the room. Here's a list of 100 entrepreneurs who succeeded with little or no education, including a half-dozen who dropped out of elementary school.
Even in those early days of AltaVista and Lycos I can't ever recall using Yahoo.
I can't ever recall using AltaVista and Lycos. Of course, I came late to the Internet GUI scene. My first five years on the Internet was on a dial-up SLIP account into a UNIX box and using Lynx (text web browser) to browse the Internet.
The assumptions I'm making are the most-generous most in-your-favor assumptions I can reasonable make.
Your assumptions are shit.
I'm pretty sure you'd be an asshole no matter where you worked.
Someone has to get the job done.
And from the pissing and moaning you've done here in the past about your help desk gigs and difficulty finding jobs after being outsourced, I'm pretty sure the "highly paid" thing is just about as real as your "75 pounds of muscle gained in just a year."
I've never been outsourced from any job in the last 20+ years of my IT career. I'm a contractor. I do contract work. The contract can last one day to one year. I'm currently two years into a five-year contract for government IT that's fully paid for by your tax dollars. That also includes paid federal holidays, 20 Paid Time Off (PTO) days, healthcare/dental/vision and 401k. If the Republicans shut down the government tomorrow, I'll still be working since I'm an essential employee.
Yahoo was a rather lame index.
That must have been the three years or so that Google provided search results for Yahoo under contract.
That would require you to first remove your political/ideological blinders and we all know that ain't about to happen.
Which "political/ideological blinders" would those be?
Who else could claim ownership of the US "our country"?
Mexico. Next question?
Nature always sides with the hidden flaw.
