6. I hate this "education" meme...
that's pushed by the right wing when it comes to jobs and domestic job cuts. Not that there's anything wrong with strong education, but the emphasis seems to be on forcing the workforce to continually hop here and there to meet the ever-shifting whims of industry as it reacts to a global economy and seeks cheaper and cheaper labor, more tax cuts, etc. If workers are retrained for another industry sector, who's to say enough jobs will be in that field in a few years? And the hypocrisy of war-lover McCain talking about wasteful government spending is disgusting.
