Education today…

I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible with liberty and justice for all. Ooops, some people want to take “under God” out. Screw them. (I have to admit that I cheated a little. After I wrote it all down, I looked it up for the punctuation.) Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. Ooops, Sorry Pluto was deemed unworthy to be a planet. How about the order of succession for the presidency? Vice President, Speaker of the House, President Pro Tem of the Senate. After that, it goes through the Cabinet. I used to be able to recite the states and capitols but I’m getting rusty and it would take too much time and space.  Besides, they added a couple since I learned them!  My point is that these are things that we were taught as the norm in grade school and junior high. Ooops, middle school. I would wager that no more than 20% of high school graduates know what I just recited. Probably the same for college seniors.

The state of the educational system today almost insures that kids don’t know any of that stuff. Most of the Socialist, unionized teachers are busy teaching political correctness, Johnny has two mommies, Sarah has two daddies how great Hugo Chavez and Bill Clinton were and there is nothing wrong with getting a BJ from some intern if you are a married man. There is no US history. I read somewhere that a US history school book dedicated one paragraph to Abraham Lincoln. I could do an hour on him with my limited knowledge!  Take a look at this for liberal bias in text books.

The teachers unions have produced inept, lazy and biased teachers that can’t teach subjects without including their own opinions as fact. Look up accusations against teachers on the internet and you will find pages of everything from cheating on kids tests in order to increase the school’s and their own ratings to having sex with students. Many of these crimes are covered up by the principals and school boards. In some cases guilty teachers are transferred to hide them. Take a look at this.

Please don’t think that I’m painting all teachers with the same brush. There are many fine teachers who try to teach the real history of the country and math without, “2 + 2 = 5. That’s OK Jimmy, whatever you say.” As long as Jimmy doesn’t get his feelings hurt. They are out there but they fight an uphill battle. Parents are insisting that their little darlings are the brightest and deserve the prize. Someone is going to be in first place in life and there are going to be losers. Too many of today’s kids from birth through college are not at all prepared for it.

The results of this kind of teaching is what gave us Bill Clinton and BO. If the young people that were a major force behind BO’s election were educated and informed the guy never would have won his party’s nomination let alone the Presidency. They would have realized his philosophy is nothing more than Socialism and that he, himself, is nothing more than a two-bit dictator-wanna-be.

My advice: 1) abolish teachers’ unions, no not just teachers’ unions, but all public employee unions, 2) establish standards for teachers, 3) test and monitor teachers for adherence to the standards. 4) Fire, nothing less, the teachers that don’t live up to the standards.

George and his wife, who happens to be blond, are sitting by the fire, listening to the radio. The announcer comes on and says, “Everyone in Plainview please park your cars to the odd numbered side of the street so the plows can come through.” Crystal, the wife, bundles up, runs out and moves the car.

The next night as the snow continues the announcer comes on to ask that the residences park on the even side for the snow plows. Crystal, again, bundles up and moves the car.

Two nights later it is snowing again. The announcer comes on and says, “Please move your cars to the…” Right at that moment the power goes out. Crystal asks George, “Which side of the street should I park the car on?”

George replies, “Honey, why don’t you leave it in the garage tonight?”
