Default U.of Virginia cancels veteran's day shoot

.
Yes, the U. of V. cancelled the usual 21 gun salute. It appears that despite that it is an expected part of any patriotic program, and would be

pre-announced, the babies of the University of Virginia. would all have nervous breakdowns over what thrills the average 5 year old.

It was the Navy this year to fire the salute. The services rotate each year. The Navy is protesting this decision.

Can't do that. They aren't fully indoctrinated yet.

They will send them back to Mommy after 4 years..fully indoctrinated and ready to live in her basement. Not many jobs available for 4 year graduates

College is ok for what we NEED. We need more engineers, nurses, doctors. Not degrees in "women's studies" or other such liberal arts degrees. The average starting pay for a psychology degree is about $30,000 a year. Hmm, average pipeline welder makes between $50 and $90 a hour or over $100,000 a year starting. An RN in Alabama can start at about $50,000 a year. Wrong degrees for a real working society.
