Looking into my crystal ball, I see several growth areas.

1. Scribe: Complete College Georgia will produce an additional 250,000 graduates , but we will still need " soft " skills like reading and writing. Offshoring to educational powerhouses like India and the Philippines will serve part of this need ,but we will still need domestic scribes to serve domestic needs such as bill paying,eviction notice reading, contract reading,report card reading,transcript reading, and memo generation.

2. Translators: Spanglish, Valspeak, Textspeak, Cliche,Slackerspeak,and Ebonics speakers will be in great demand.

3. Work Coaches: After four years of easy A's, work coaches will be required to motivate workers to show up , to show on time, and to address the affective needs of employers.( Laymen often refer to this as working.)

4.Shills: As we become dumber and dumber, heroic efforts must be made to insure that voters believe that we're still number one.

5. News Babes: News Babes will require special curriculum such as D├ęcolletage and the News, Cleavage and Rhetoric, Makeup and World Conflict.

6. Number Crunchers: Since continuous assessment is essential for college success, we will need to insure that the numbers come out right.

7.Yes Men/Women: Agreement is so much easier.

8. Therapists: Teachers who believed that knowledge is important will need to be disabused of this idea.

9. Costumers: Although all costumes will be produced in China, alterations will be required due to the increasing girth of Americans and Chinese production anomalies.Look for rapid growth in patriotic costumes.

10. Manikins: Great numbers of historic manikins will be required to service the large influx of Asian tourists. Expect a burgeoning demand for manikins representing American iconography: middle class Americans ( especially the silent majority), Founding Fathers, Elvis Presley, talk show hosts, and so on.

11.Math Technicians: See scribes.

Ponder, I must. New professions on the horizon I see. Must think up job descriptions.

Brave New World?

theflyonthewall commented on Saturday, Jul 13, 2013 at 09:47 AM

Let's see. Entertainment is the primary occupation of many young scamps. Soma will be legalized any day now, and we have evolved past the need for Episolons since workers are either imported or work is exported. I think Huxley would be proud.

Educational " reformers" have an impressive command of Newspeak .so I think Orwell would be proud as well.

Lord of the Flies?

Transparency for the Supreme Court
March 01, 2014
In theory the Supreme Court stands apart from the political fray, rendering decisions based on the merits of the case rather than furthering a political agenda. In practice theory and reality parted company long, long ago. As it stands each political party tries to gain political ascendancy by stacking the ...

Time for a Unicameral Legislature?
February 15, 2014
Our present form of government is the product of Enlightenment political theory,the colonial experience,and a weak sense of national identity. The House was designed to represent the interests of the states. The Senate represented the interests of the nation. House and Senate were balanced to insure that the large states ...

Corporate Propaganda
January 10, 2014
Corporate propaganda is a feature of life in contemporary America. Perhaps one of the most egregious examples of corporate propaganda is found in Ohio in the unhealthy marriage of Disney radio and the Ohio gas and oil industry. Disney has participated in a 26 stop tour throughout the state of ...

What Is in a Name?
December 30, 2013
After plowing through too many stores this Christmas season, it has become apparent that long established names and trademarks mean very little. Murano glassware is made in China ,as is Waterford crystal ,as is Spode china ,as is " Irish" linen ,as is Cuisinart cookware. This to me seems the ...

The Transpacific Pact and National Sovereignty
December 22, 2013
The Transpacific Pact is essentially a twenty-first century version of the kind of international trade agreements first realized under NAFTA and that in itself should give us pause. Prior to the NAFTA agreement , the US ran a trade surplus with Mexico. After NAFTA, the US has enjoyed a trade ...
