All in the Family featured the curmudgeonly Archie Bunker. Archie was television’s most famous grouch, blunt, blustering, straightforward and untouched by the PC crowd. He was the archetype of the conservative male. Michael desprately tried to reeducate him, but he persisted in his breviloquence.



Looking back at the last 40 years, we realize: ARCHIE WAS RIGHT!

Ivy?

Yesterday evening I posted about an experience I had my Freshman year of college.  It was a bit of an eye  opener to me to learn that college wasn't necessarily about learning and that sometimes what was expected was the appearance of learning and not actual learning or intellectual development.

If you are like me you probably rank colleges.  Some schools are, "the best", "top" "really good" or just places to drink beer.  Whatever your personal classification system you probably think of American Ivy League schools as the best in terms of intellectual abilities of the students.

Not so.

Ivy League students ask Rick Perry for anal sex during campus visit
“I know you have been very strong on all foreign policy issues, including Somali pirates, but what is your stance on butt pirates?”
The above took place at Dartmouth.  For those of you who don't know, Dartmouth is where people who have too much money send children who aren't smart enough to get into Harvard or Yale.

If it was my kid and money, I'd expect something more intellectually stimulating than questions involving condoms.  Then again maybe there is why the guy who wrote the list didn't make it in to Harvard.

    Ivy League hasn't been worth spit for at least 50 years.
    Most of the problems on the Supreme Court started when lawyers and politicos decided that the only judges who should be on the Court should come from Ivy League.

    Remember how they trashed Harriet Myers when she was nominated? Well they ignored the fact that SHE was the one who vetted guys like Roberts and Alito. She might not have gone to an Ivy League, but I think she was smart as a whip, with a lot of common sense.

    There is absolutely NO requirement that Supreme Court justices should come from Ivy League. In fact in the early days, some of them weren't even judges before being nominated.

    Ivy League is worthless. They do some of the worst brainwashing out of all the colleges and unis in this Country.

    Unless one is going for a white collar profession, trade school or even a local Community College will give you a better deal if you are wanting that paper.
