9. In my opinion
there are too many people going to college. I think that many people simply aren't smart enough for a college education, and have business being there at all. We need more ditch diggers, house painters, masons, etc. Colleges have watered down higher education so as to pass more students and basically sell more degrees, as they are (mostly) businesses selling a product. We don't need a nation full of college-educated people. We need an educated society, but we need productive people in all fields, even skilled, semi-skilled, and unskilled labor.

America spends too much time "selling" and not enough "producing". That's why China is whooping our ass economically.

Before anyone attacks me for what I've said, let me state here that I attended college (art school in NYC) and I own a cabinet shop (skilled labor job). I respect both worlds.
