We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
I see some stereotyping going on here. Not ALL grads are useless and self important. However, it seems to be getting worse in both the numbers and scope of deficiency.
2014 grads are just the latest bunch of ill prepared, insufficiently educated, overgrown children to enter the real world. Most will get sorted out (at a cost to us all of course) and some will go on to experience failure upon failure.
Where the education system has failed most is in weeding out and identifying the failures.
