    I think at least a minor in philosophy could do a lot of people a lot of good.

    Having looked for jobs in the last 10 years I would say it's extremely important. If you want to work for yourself, then no, but otherwise they are fairly necessary. Trade schools are also a good option.

    A Degree in Philosophy is also know as a degree in sophistry or bloviating. This degree will get you a job taking out the trash or flipping burgers.

    Fashion Design. It is a profession that is very exclusive and competitive. Very few break into this profession. Job you can expect with this one. J. C. Penny's stocking the clothing department.

    Fine Arts: It has no relationship with the real world out there. It will not put money in your wallet or food on the table. Expect to be flipping burgers for a living.

    Art History: Another fluff degree that is as worthless as a wart.

    Women's studies: Fine fertilizer for your backyard but it will not impress an employer. He'll put a clothespin on his nose.

    Performing arts: AKA acting degree. This one equals working at McDonalds.
    As a guy with a generic History degree (ugh) it's just as bad.

    We all know medical professionals and lawyers and judges need degrees, but how many people make the big bucks without college degrees?

    Good for what? To ponder why you spent money on nothing?

    "Around the country, progressive bullies have attacked Christians for daring to put their faith ahead of the pet causes of those who feign compassion while destroying life-giving liberties. What we are seeing is a scorched-earth, take-no-prisoners approach as the wildfire burns across our land. It is not enough that Christians be quiet. Christians must be silenced and punished. Their faith cannot be respected. Legislation that ensures people are free to live and work according to their faith without fear of being punished by government must be stopped and decried as discrimination...There is one key reason that those on the Left must force their beliefs on the rest of us: if they didn't force their craziness on us, we would never embrace it." ~Erick Erickson
    Proverbs 3:5-8
