Just Curious: Who at the White House and NSA . . .

By Debbie Schlussel
. . . Bought fake college degrees from St. Regis University?
It’s not a new story (even high-ranking DHS employees used fake degrees also). But it’s in the news again.
I’m not opposed to people who never graduated from college holding important jobs if they have the smarts and experience necessary. We all know that drunken frat parties at college doesn’t infuse you with that.
But lying about your education is another thing. And fake degrees at the NSA? Come on.

Idiots are running our country Deb. The head idiot is in the White House. The same anti-semitic idiot is selling weapons to IRAN?!!? Maybe he’s not an idiot:
And Ann Cunter loves and supports Bush 100%

Are you surprised Deb? Especially after reading this?

My degree can be checked by anyone with my name and year of graduation by phone in minutes 24/7. Too many colleges make it too difficult to verify even the most simple assertions like that Phd in Psychopharmaceutical Solutions for National Policy Makers.

My very first job after I left the service was as an employment agency councellor. A young kid came in, badly dressed, badly groomed, and not too articulate. He sat down and I asked him what he could do, and he just shrugged. “Lots of shit,” was what he said. Then the inter-office phone rang on my desk and one of the guys in the office knew this kid. He told me to call up Cal Tech and tell the person who anwered the number to put so-and-so on the line and just give the phone to this kid. Well, I did as suggested and then handed the receiver to the kid. The kid started talking gibberish stuff and then handed me the phone. The guy on the other end of the line was a big big NASA guy and he told me to send the kid over right away and to mention his name to anyone who stopped him. I learned later that the CalTech complex including AeroJet, NASA, and Cal Tech, none of which had any requirements at all for employees; if the person could do it, send him over. As far as I know the guy is still over there. He can’t write, talk, or dress well, but he sure can think.
In those days resume’s meant nothing, just as they do now.

There is a big difference between your mythical genius that is self educated and government employees that use diploma mills to get promotions and jobs.
That is called fraud my friend and if you do not know the difference, you are part of the problem.
A good resume does matter especially when the whole thing is not made up.
