Let me explain.
Too many years ago, when I was a public school student, 2+2 equaled 4. Everybody knew it and if you happened to write down 5 as your answer you were docked for it. If you stood your ground and argued the point long enough and without reservation, there was a good chance you would find yourself taking the same math class over next year while all your friends moved on.
Today, thanks to Common Core, you can proudly say that 2+2 equals 5 and get a plaque and a pat on the head if you simply explain WHY you think the answer is 5. Nobody will criticize you, nobody will dock your grade and along you go to the next level of common core math.
At this point in a rather nutshell sort of way, it should be noted that during those early years of my public school education…we sent a man to the moon and returned him safely to the earth and while it was Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins who made the trip…they were sent there by people who knew damn well that 2+2 equaled 4…NOT 5 and were considered to be at the top of their class.
Common core math is but a singular example but know that Common Core encompasses the entire curriculum from math to social studies, history to science and everything in between. It is meant to change the way children think thus, changing the way future ADULTS think and make them all part of the collective and while some states are dumping it, far too many are not.
Remember…“It takes a village to raise a child.”
What we are watching as it happens in our country today is…
The impractical application of Common Core as a means by which liberals will control the people via their ideology they’ve been building toward this seminal point for decades. Dumbing down children who will become dumbed down adults voting for dumbed down candidates is the only way liberals can maintain power over the people while indoctrinating them to believe that a REGRESSIVE ideology is somehow…progressive.
The liberal ideology of complete control of the people had to first manifest itself in our public schools. Indoctrinate children into the ideology by TEACHING it to them 7 or 8 hours a day, 5 days a week and then send them, as many of them as possible off to asylums of HIGHER indoctrination called COLLEGES where liberal professors spit-shine the ideology before the little liberal robots are scattered about in our formerly free society.
Do this for enough years and eventually you have the first wave of liberally indoctrinated STUDENTS becoming TEACHERS of the liberal ideology and a little while later, you have the next gen of the liberally indoctrinated, those taught by the first wave making THEIR students believe that they should be ‘offended’ by every little thing…feel ostracized if they don’t get a trophy even when they lose and be moved along to higher levels of classes even if they didn’t really pass because they might have their oh-so-fragile sense of self-worth damaged when you tell them that 2+2 doesn’t equal 5.
Now, those ever so brittle former eaters of paste are voting and guess for whom they will vote? Ahhhh, yes…
They will vote for the party that stands for their right to eat paste and get the wrong answers on their tests. Those candidates are, after all, their ego protectors. They are the ones who BOOST their self-esteem and they are the ones who tell them they are RIGHT to have voted for them.
Those voters will be told that those who answered 4 on the 2+2 test are evil. They WANT the paste eaters to fail and it is the 2+2 equals 4 crowd that stand in the way of making paste eating a successful and viable way to make a living.
Only the liberally indoctrinated, liberal ideologues can make their lives better. Elect THOSE people…democrats…because THEY will take CARE of you.
Common Core governance.
The problem is that those who were eating paste 20…30…40 and even 50 years ago and bought into the common core fundamentals of governance are still eating paste today while still believing only the liberals can provide them a better meal.
The paste eaters are now electing paste eaters to serve in congress and it is not limited to just the left side of the aisle either.
As a case in point, I give you the paste eating senator from Arizona, John McCain who recently told a radio audience that we all must simply “accept” that everything we say, even in the privacy of our own homes is going to be recorded by the government. Said McCain, “It’s the world we’re living in, you don’t like it, but everything I say I expect to be recorded. It’s just the way we live. It’s something you’ve got to accept. I don’t particularly like it, but it is what it is.”
That’s equally as insane as Nancy Pelosi telling us that, “We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it, away from the fog of controversy.”
2+2 equals 5.
Sure, there are holdouts…those who won’t simply go along with the plan…another case in point would be the New Hampshire father who spoke out against the inclusion of a book in his 14 year old daughters government indoctrination center’s curriculum that contained some pretty sexually graphic content at an indoctrination board meeting last week. When the father exceeded his scant two minute allotment to speak his mind…the paste eating members of the “school” board had a police officer ARREST the man and haul him out of the building in handcuffs.
Do NOT apply common sense to the equation. Do NOT speak out against the liberal ideology or you will be publicly spanked.
The congressional equivalent to this would be what happened to senator Ted Cruz when HE dared to stand and speak HIS mind on the floor of the senate for 21 hours.
Cruz was ostracized by paste eaters from BOTH sides of the political aisle, publicly spanked for daring to recommend that Obamacare be delayed or done away with as it was nothing but a nightmare.
Doesn’t Cruz realize that paying more for health insurance and more for deductibles, prescriptions and submitting your most important decisions regarding your health to a 15 member panel of unelected, non-medical bureaucrats is far, FAR better than making your own decisions regarding your insurance in accordance with your financial situation while making your life and death decisions with the doctors you liked and wanted to keep???
Obviously neither Cruz nor that New Hampshire father, are tasting the paste.
Just as liberals are forcing paste down the throats of students from kindergarten to college graduations, elected paste eaters are mandating ALL of us to eat paste and like it…or else. Obamacare = paste. Amnesty = paste. NSA surveillance = paste. IRS targeting = paste. The Benghazi investigation is a waste of time and money = paste. Green energy = paste. If you don’t like Obama you’re a racist = paste. Our $18 trillion dollar national debt is no big deal = paste. Our military must win the hearts and minds of the enemy = paste.
Abortion is healthcare…terrorism is workplace violence…Islam is the religion of peace…coexist…the Constitution is outdated…there’s time and space for diplomacy with Iran…It was Bush’s fault…It’s the republican’s fault…
It was the fault of a You Tube video.
“You didn’t build that” …”fundamentally transforming America” …”hope and change” …”Yes we can” …”it’s the right thing to do” …”We must do it for the children” …”I have a pen and a phone” … gun free zones…freedom of speech zones…patriots are domestic terrorists…Nothing but paste, paste and more paste.
2+2 = 5…Eat up.
Government rule of the people via common core.
When children are forced to follow nonsense blindly, they will grow into adults who have no choice but to follow nonsense blindly and the next generation will follow blindly as they will have known no other way. It was Edward R. Murrow who said “A nation of sheep will soon have a government of wolves,” but that was when the press acted more like guard dogs than lapdogs.
Let’s put it this way…if you voted for Obama the first time, you’re a paste eater. If you voted for him the second time…you started on a bigger bottle of the stuff and if you intend to vote for more liberal/socialists in November of this year and again in 2016…you’re washing it down with Kool Aid.
If you’re voting for the likes of McCain, Boehner, Graham and McConnell…you’ve got paste on your chin and those guys are so full of the stuff it’s leaking out the other end. They’re glued to their chairs and it’s time we dissolved the bond.
Common Core is nothing but ideological paste and…
This is America where we are STILL free to NOT eat the PASTE!!!
