From 2002, IMHO, the best halftime show of the last couple of decades.
Via Hot Air, President Obama says getting a degree is a good thing but, what does thousands of dollars in debt from your college education get you job wise? The awesome Peter Schiff went to New Orleans to find out.
From the video:
President Obama promotes the myth that everyone must go to college. That if you don’t go, your life will be ruined — that you will end up waiting tables, or trapped in some other mundane occupation. The truth is, even with a college degree, you may still end up waiting tables, you’ll just begin your “career” four or five years later, tens of thousands of dollars in debt.
Here is an example of some of the plumb jobs college grads were able to land during the Obama administration. Not just liberal arts majors mind you, but graduates with degrees in mathematics, robotics, neuroscience, engineering, accounting, business administration, economics, biology, communications, graphic design, marketing, and linguistics.
Before the Federal Government got involved, college degrees were much more affordable, and ambitious students from poorer families could easily work their way through. In addition, as fewer high school graduates actually went on to college, not only were college degrees much less expensive to obtain, they were far more valuable to have. With so many high school grads now going on to college, a college degree is actually less valuable in today’s job market, despite its inflated price tag, than was a high school diploma in the 1950s. The only solution is to get the Federal Government completely out of higher education, and let the free market fix what the government broke!

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – The NFL has removed a replacement official from the New Orleans-Carolina game because it discovered he’s a Saints fan.
Side judge Brian Stropolo has been replaced by an alternate, Tim Keese. The NFL made the decision Sunday morning just hours before kickoff.
“He was replaced because of the information that surfaced disclosing that he is a Saints fan,” league spokesman Michael Signora said.
The league will look further into the matter. It received several phone calls and emails about Stropolo, who is from New Orleans and posted several photos of himself in Saints gear tailgating at a preseason game on his Facebook page.
Stropolo’s Facebook page has since been taken down.
Stropolo worked the Week 1 NFL opener, a nationally televised game between the Cowboys and the defending Super Bowl champion Giants.
ESPN was first to report the news.
Panthers general manager Marty Hurney declined comment on the situation, calling it “a league matter.”
