In case you haven’t noticed what’s coming out of our colleges and universities lately or maybe more importantly, who’s teaching at our colleges & universities, I hardly think it matters that Scott Walker attended but never graduated from college.
There’s actually a website called the College Dropouts Hall of Fame and it would amaze you some of the people who are included in this list! Here are a few:
- Ansel Adams, photographer
- Sheldon Adelson, billionaire casino owner
- Ben Affleck, actor
- Edward Albee, playwright
- Paul Allen (& his pal Bill Gates), co-founders of Microsoft
- Louis Armstrong, jazz musician, singer
- Carl Bernstein, Watergate reporter
- Patrizio Bertelli, billionaire co-founder of Prada
- Ray Bradbury, award-winning science fiction author
- Richard Branson, billionaire founder of Virgin Atlantic Airways
- Warren Buffett, billionaire chairman of Berkshire Hathaway
- Scott Carpenter, astronaut
- John Chancellor, TV journalist and anchorman
- Grover Cleveland, U.S. president
- Walt Disney, developer of Disneyland
- Albert Einstein, Nobel prize-winning physicist
- Al Gore, inventor of the internet
- Barack Obama, community organizer, socialist and unfortunately our Commander-in-chief
- John Dean, failed presidential candidate former head of DNC
You don’t have to graduate college to succeed, you just need common sense, something sorely missing in Washington D.C.
