He is a lawyer. What do you expect?
I saw in another thread that you are blue collar. What did you want to be when you grew up?
A useful, productive member of society. You know, someone who produces things that people need. I wear my blue collar proudly. Many people depend on it. And it has made me a pretty good living.
This is a dodge and likely dishonest. What child says, "I want to be a cog in the grand societal machine"? They say they want to be astronauts or something.
No, it is your kind that are dishonest. Most blue collars are honest and hard working.
What do I do? Ran out of money in college and was tired of a full course load while working 30 hrs a week. Still managed six semesters with a 3.54/4.00 in one school and a 4.00/4.00 in another. Tested with an IQ of 145 (so much for the idiots that think all those who did not get a nice piece of paper to hang on the wall are subhuman). Qualified as an aircraft mechanic and received the FAA A&P rating. I have worked 30 years producing electricity in two powerplants. I have been a Nuclear Auxiliary Operator, Repairman, Predictive Maintenance Engineer (not bad for no degree), developed the Infrared Thermography Program, Vibration Analysis Program, Tribology Program, as well as spending a stint with the Institute of Nuclear Plant Operators in Atlanta, where I audited the equipment failure reports of 28 US Nuclear Plants while assisting with writing the Reporting Guidance Manuals and developing the Equipment Performance Exchange Database. I was the first non-degreed person to work in this capacity at INPO, and only the second to be asked for by name. I have recently worked as a Maintenance Planner and am now rebuilding our Preventive Maintenance Program as we restart the power plant where I currently am employed. I have spent 13 of my 30 years of employment titled as an Engineer, and my salary is comfortably in six figures. Not bad for no degree, particularly in the blue collar Union position that I currently hold. I would guess that since I have been employed in all aspects of the generation of electricity for the last 30 years, and given the value of electricity to a civilized society, my guess would be that I have produced far more for this country and people than you have even thought of. I think that it would be safe to guess that if a vote were taken to either get rid of lawyers or get rid of power plants, I would remain employed.
As to wanting to be an astronaut, it never interested me. My father (yes, I am one of those who both know who he is and have actually spent time with him) drilled into me from a young age that it was important to have at least one craft skill, and that the most important thing in life after serving God is to serve your fellow man. In fact, serving your fellow man IS serving God. As to what I wanted to be as a child? I have been interested in history, religion, and machines since I can remember - and my parents tell me that I was constantly looking through the set of encyclopedias that we had even before I entered school.
So much for another one of your small minded stereotypes.
