I am assured that some of you are reading this and saying to yourselves, "Duh! This topic is old hat. We already know there's a glut of nurses in many parts of the country, so why are you writing about this?" Here is my reason... Read More

    LOL I already gave up my homemade marshmallow recipe. Soon you guys would have any reason to invite me to scandals anymore and I'll have to make up my own scandal recipe.

    Though if it's freshly made it's still warm and sticky and will get stuck in people's hair.

    Ok all right LOL. It's not much of a secret but I use this recipe and sub out coarse salt for a nice chunky sea salt. Sometimes instead of peanuts or cashews I use pistachios.

    Oh and toss the corn in the sea salt while its warm as well as put salt in the syrup mix.

    True, at least to a degree. but when you see the ads, encouraging schooling that we know isn't going to lead to a job, I see uncontrolled capitalism at its best (worst).
    Uncontrolled capitalism? Are you saying the gov't needs to decide who can advertise and for what? I am more the take responsibility for your own actions kind of guy. If the news started telling there was a shortage of people that build stagecoach wheels, I saw schools advertising the career possibilities of being a stagecoach wheel builder, and I jumped on the bandwagon without any research I would deserve being in debt with little job prospects.

    People want others to do all of their thinking for them today. I guess that way they can blame others when it hits the fan.

    Yeah if someone wants to go to school to study a particular thing badly enough and has the resources to do so either $$ or loans then can you blame the schools for trying to sell them exactly what they want. Oh and they want it to be easy too.

    How exactly would you go about researching the job outlook for stagecoach wheel builders? Clearly you cannot as the government, the training programs, the media, or the employers...

    Hunting down new grad wheel builders?

    There's certainly no "stagecoachwheelbuilders.com to stalk religiously.

    Yes, too many people externalize the blame for their own personal faults, poor decisions, and shortcomings. Personal responsibility seems to have been thrown out of the window in favor of the 'poor little me, woe is me' outlook on life.

    More people must face the music and be accountable when something goes wrong in their lives. Whatever happened to due diligence?

    If only we could go back to the days when we were ruled by The Fates, Shamans, medicine men, witch doctors, sun gods, and fortune tellers.

    It's human nature to erroneously believe we've somehow lost the "glory days" of human kind when, in fact, you're staring at...human nature.

    I would start with doing a search on job sites to see how many openings there are in my area, then I would move to contacting the HR dept. of a company that hires them. Most will give you a min of their time if they know you are researching a job field and not trying to get a job interview. It isn't Rocket Science, just have to use some common sense.
