Many Americans with college degrees have jobs that don't require their degrees.
"We wrote earlier about the college debt bubble, and how greedy, government-subsidized college administrators are charging obscene amounts of money for largely useless and ideologically-slanted 'educations.' (100 colleges now charge $50,000 or more in tuition, compared to just 5 colleges in 2008-09, and federal financial-aid subsidies effectively reward colleges for increasing tuition to levels that would evoke outrage in other civilized countries.)"

New York State law bans the sale of wine and spirits in a store that also sells food. This law ostensibly bans the sale of wine-and-cheese gift baskets.
"In reality, these laws are designed to provide special-interest protections for existing wine retailers. To ensure liquor stores get all the profits, you must go to the supermarket for your food and make a separate stop at the liquor store (if you can find one) for your wine or spirits. And you must assemble your gift baskets at home."
