Robert Reich Wants Students
to March Like the Germans

Newsbusters, by Tim Graham

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 9/1/2013 12:51:33 PM

The Sunday newspaper supplement Parade magazine has a cover story on "Putting America Back to Work," and promises as a guru "Robert Reich on the future of manufacturing jobs." Inside, Reich´s article is titled "What America Needs Now." Like a good liberal, Reich insisted "we should follow Germany´s lead." America´s high schools need a fifth year for what liberals call the working class: More than 12 million students are projected to drop out of high school over the next decade; the millions more with diplomas face bleak job prospects. Many young people (and their parents) still assume that the only

I remember something on a news program where Monica´s boyfriend was showing a doll house size model of something to Reich. Clinton told him he could move into one of the rooms in the model. Everyone laughed. If that had been GWB, they would have been horrified.

So Robert Reich wants students to march like Germans, eh. He sounds like the Third Reich.

All Democrats are Nazi´s in their hearts.

Maybe we should have the Obama Youth (like they had the Hitler Youth) and perhaps persecute a certain class or a certain ethnicity, intern them in Prison Camps make them slaves of forced labor for the Reich program and that would make this a better economy.

These people make me sick.

I don´t know about the German aspect, but there´s nothing at all wrong with advocating trades and trade schools as an alternative to college. Whether offered as a fifth year of traditional high school or as a stand alone two year technical school. Back in the day, my schooling included shop classes beginning in either the 7th or 8th grade (I forget which) and running through my senior year in high school. Would have made me employable at an apprentice level in several different trades if I would have followed that route. Of course, education then also taught me to read, write, speak coherently and do math. We´d be much better off if what passes for education now dropped all of the classes devoted to social issues and returned to what was once defined as academics.

#9 has it right. There´s a need for technical training and the proper place to start it is in high school. Reich´s idea is typical, to put a layer on top of a failed system, which, as #12 points out, would mask high youth unemployment.

Actual training isn´t some new-fangled foreign idea.

I´ve always advocated a vocational / technical path for those not planning to be Engineers, Doctors, Nurses, Research scientists etc.

An apprentice plumber or electrician earns more than a ´liberal arts´ graduate does after 10 years of flipping burgers or working for the gummint as a low level bureaucrat.

But Reich is an idiot wanting to add another year to high school. Split them off after they learn to read, rite and do ´rithmetic. With competent teachers, that could be done at 9th grade; not the ´13th´.

As Biden would say: "Stand up Robert". Oh my bad, you are standing up. "So let´s all stand up for Robert".

Robert gives a little man complex a bad name so we will have to have a special category just for him.

Robert wants us to march like Germans to remind him of the old country.

Those at risk kids are just being warehoused the last couple years and adding a 13th does nothing. Kill the stupid social programs and let kids opt for a trades track in 9th or 10th grade and do things they enjoy learning about and can put to use after graduation

Please excuse the multiple reply. Some high schools offer a 13th year option. But the 13th year of free, public education is not free. It becomes especially expensive if year 13 became customary. And, as usual, the taxpayer would have to write the check. This seems like an incremental step toward the transformation of college education to entitlement status.

What is needed are colleges that teach TRADES, such as carpentry, plumbing, electrical repair, large equipment operation,
welding, machine operation, and so forth. These can be local two year schools that teach people what they need to get jobs, with practical, hands-on applications, and internships with companies. This nonsense of having to join a union and learn while on the job just holds people back and is riddled to cronyism. Most of the folks hired have a "connection" with the employer.

I don´t know if things are still the same as they were in Germany in the 60s, but a young German-born carpenter came to do some work on our house back then.

He told my parents that he emigrated to the US because he could have his own business here. If he had stayed in Germany, he said, he would have had to work for someone to whom he had been apprenticed. He said the "master" owned the tools, and he would not have been allowed to own his own tools or work for himself alone. Here in the US, he was proud to say that he owned all his own tools and owned his own business, answering to no one. He said this would have been impossible in Germany.

A man was charged with attempted murder and aggravated battery in a Friday shooting that left a 40-year-old man in the Brainerd neighborhood with six gunshot wounds. Deontae C. Jones, 18, was held on $1 million bail after appearing in Cook County bond court Sunday afternoon. Prosecutors said Jones approached a man who was outside his residence on the 9300 block of S. May St., checking to see if his recycling bin was full when Jones approached the man and fired at him.

The first family attended Easter services Sunday at the Nineteenth Street Baptist Church, a Northwest Washington congregation that welcomed the Obamas on the eve of the president’s first inauguration. The Obamas’ motorcade left the White House shortly before 10 a.m. (Snip) The motorcade pulled up to the church, about four miles away, just after 10. The first family arrived through a tented entrance and sat in the second pew in a mostly, but not completely filled church, joining an estimated 250 others. The president wore a light khaki suit. The first lady was wearing a cream dress and sweater. Daughters

CLEARWATER — In the mid-1970s, Wayne Phillips saw a television program telling the story of the Shroud of Turin, a centuries-old linen cloth that bears the image of a crucified man. At first, he was miffed. Years of Catholic schooling — Jesuit High School in Tampa and Notre Dame University — and he had never known about this artifact? (He would later learn that it was a delicate subject at the Vatican.) A doctor, he has a curious mind. A mind shaped by logic and by science. But as a Catholic, he understands some beliefs are still a mystery. He

WASHINGTON — IT’S weird to be jealous of your car. But I am. Men look at my car with such naked lust, their eyes devouring the curves and chrome, that I often feel as though I’m intruding on an intimate moment. Women like it, too. They sometimes grin and give it a thumbs up as it growls by, and one girlfriend fondly refers to it as “the Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Goddess car.” But the icon evokes a special feeling in men.

California Unemployment Holds

California’s unemployment rate is rotten and holding steady. In March, according to the Los Angeles Times, the rate was 8.1%. In February, it was exactly the same. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the state only added 11,800 net new jobs in March, many of them in construction, government, education, and health services. The greatest gains were in professional and business services, with 3,100 new positions. But the jobs numbers in hospitality, manufacturing, and leisure dipped, and the biggest drop came in financial activities, as the slowing rate of mortgages forced banks to fire employees.

SCARBOROUGH, Maine- John C. Houbolt, an engineer whose contributions to the U.S. space program were vital to NASA´s successful moon landing in 1969, has died. He was 95. Houbolt died Tuesday at a nursing home in Scarborough, Maine, of complications from Parkinson´s disease, his son-in-law Tucker Withington, of Plymouth, Mass., confirmed Saturday. As NASA describes on its website, while under pressure during the U.S.-Soviet space race, Houbolt was the catalyst in securing U.S. commitment to the science and engineering theory that eventually carried the Apollo crew to the moon and back safely. His efforts in the early 1960s are largely

Democrats have a problem and everyone knows it. President Obama calls it a “congenital disease.” If they can’t control it, Obama could spend the final years of his presidency battling not only a Republican House but also a Republican Senate. Democrats don’t vote in midterm elections. That’s an exaggeration, of course, but the core of the Democratic coalition is made up of many people who turn out to vote only in presidential elections. The Republican coalition — older and whiter — suffers less from midterm falloff.So much has been made of the building blocks the president assembled to win his

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years.

Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings.

Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million.

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like
