Currently, the employment system seems deeply biased towards degreed individuals based on the theory that a degree is a sign of intellectual quality and hard work (however dubious the reality may be). Even if a degree has no relation to the work being done, employers demand a degree because they can.
What would the end of the FFA and ubiquitous degrees have on the job market and how would that work?
It seems like there would be a whole wave of young people that would be lost during the period between degrees becoming less available and and businesses being willing to accept non-degreed workers as equally valuable. Plus, if there are few decent jobs available to non-degreed individuals during this period, how would that support the argument that people can just work and save up to go to college?
I don't care what some random, raging green guy has to say & he is NOT ruining my movie! And who here thinks the fans will be screaming his name on the red carpet? Nope, RDJ & Chris Evans all the way.
And really, a team does have to give up certain things in order to create a cohesive group. Military members give up certain aspects of free speech and subject themselves to greater restrictions than the rest of the population because that's the way teams sometimes work.
But really, how/what are the other genres going to protest? Rap, R&B, and Pop are completely in the tank and Rock and Metal are having an identity crisis. (Seriously, when did Rock become pro-control & conformity? Did I miss a memo?)
Kiri and Thorin are both pretty gorgeous, but even better, I've heard rumors that Elladan & Elrohir may show up (which, considering their sister, should be interesting), Plus, we will get to see Legolas's daddy at some point.
So, I'm pretty happy with the eyecandy factor, and completely unashamed by it.
No, what we need is someone who actually has a platform and goals. Newt & Romney have "visions" but those are about as coherent as an LSD trip. I've had three years of wincing over the great orator's news conferences (before he stopped giving them after the press actually asked him real questions). I'm fine with another Texan.
I'll take a Texan, Alaskan, Floridian, Wisconsinite, basically anyone who can do the job. Santorum & Huntsman aren't memorable, Newt & Romney can't figure out their political leanings, Bachmann is acting like a stereotypical hysterical female, and Paul as President has no power to accomplish the stuff he wants without resorting to Executive Order.
Perry is memorable, consistent, steady, and has a limited set of major goals to accomplish.
