"Anyone can study for years and obtain degrees... there's little or no risk in that. Not everyone has the courage, energy or balls to go out and put their livelihood on the line. Until you show me you've taken an iota of risk to create something of value to the American economy and society... please, talk to someone else... I've hired and fired many who're qualified on paper but couldn't produce a thing."
You must be such a huge man with such huge balls! I have great respect for you, Tom.
I am an historian. You can create as many jobs as you want, fire as many people as you want, and take as much financial risk as you want, but a society without a sophisticated awareness of its past, or even the
past (as in other pasts, other histories, etc.), is a society that is sociologically lost to its future. My profession adds value to our society; it is not some Ivory Tower circle jerk, as I assume you imagine it to be. I wish you well with your money and your pursuit of more money. It all sounds revolting to me, but ... then again ... I'm not you. I don't have huge balls and take huge risks. I bet your chest is super hairy. You big man, you!
