Handel may not be very educated, but I love his Concerto Grossi.
The “hyper-educated” are much more dangerous than those who went through the School of Hard Knocks. The administration in power is the greatest proof of that.
George Washington had several gaps in his formal education, but made up for it in many other ways, earning the title “Father of our country” in the process.
Abe Lincoln, two years of formal education!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Benjamin Franklin never graduated high school or college and he’s thought of in the same breath as Newton and Da Vinci. Lincoln hardly ever saw the inside of a classroom. The list is endless.
“Abe Lincoln, two years of formal education!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
Harry Truman, none! But he had read every book in his local library.
I have an associates and I can gaurrantee you that I know a whole lot more about a whole lot of things than a lot of Bachelors, Masters, and PhD’s out there. I’m sick of eletist snobs. These are the “smarter than the rest of us” bums who are uniformly destroying America.

The first Dollar General store opened in Scottsville, Kentucky, on June 1, 1955, the concept was that no item in the store would cost more than one dollar. The idea became a success, and other stores owned by J.L. Turner and his son Cal Turner were quickly converted. By 1957, annual sales of Dollar Generals 29 stores were $5 million. The Turners did not reach this level of success without obstacles. James Luther (J.L.) Turners father died in an accident in 1902 when J.L. was only 11. J.L. had to quit school so he could work the family farm and help provide for his mother and siblings. He never completed his education. J.L. knew his limited education demanded that he become a quick study of the world around him.
