Study Computers in College!

History majors face a difficult job market… according to a new study.  Only architecture majors fared worse statistically.  History majors face an unemployment rate of over 15% with little hope of improvement.  Because of stringent teaching requirements in most states, a history degree cannot lead to a career in education.  A history degree seems to condemn the recipient to more schooling and more debt.

A history degree ??

The remedy is a simple one… avoid history classes in college.  Studying engineering and computers will provide the most opportunities after college.  It appears as if the national drive to strengthen science and math education has paid off handsomely.  Dot.com executives dominate the Fortune 500 and even entry level technology work pays handsomely when compared to what is available in the liberal arts.  There’s nothing cooler than hip, young tech industry executives soaking up everything gentrified neighborhoods have to offer.  But has all this effort come at a price?  Will our education system continue to turn its back on the liberal arts?

  • The biggest reason the Reagan Revolution was so successful– the incredibly weak alternative in 1980
  • Santorum is not the next Reagan.
  • Obama should be a peach and extend the Stafford loan forgiveness to loans taken before 2000
  • Student loan debt is the next bubble– don’t hate the tens of millions who are going to be popped (they were lied to)
  • ABC is offering a bona-fide insomnia cure tomorrow night– the Oscars

  • Happy birthday to the 16th amendment !  The income tax was unveiled to the public on this day in 1913.  Three cheers?
