If it Looks Like a Duck

19 Feb

Obama on Islamic terrorists:  “Islamic killers have legitimate grievances”.   In the “killers” (globally referred to as terrorists with the exception of Islamic terrorist supporters) own words, the 3 main grievances are:  too many non-Muslims live… kill all non-Muslims; not enough women to beat and rape; killing is fun, we need many more victims.  Obama wants to work with terrorists to give them relief in those areas they consider to be grievances.

1.  Obama will not call a terrorist group which calls itself an Islamic terrorist group a terrorist group.

2.  Obama will not call Islamic terrorist attacks against Jews who call their own attacks against Jews the purpose of the attack an Islamic terrorist attack against Jews.

3.  Obama will not call Islamic terrorist attacks against Christians who call their own attacks against Christians the purpose of the attacks an Islamic terrorist attack against Christians.

4.  Obama has given money to Islamic terrorist organizations.

5.  Obama has given military hardware to Islamic terrorist organizations.

6.  Obama has released the most violent of Islamic terrorist organizations from incarceration.

7.  Obama has enabled Islamic terrorists to cross our southern border into the US unchallenged, and granted all manner of assistance to move about the country, and receive benefits.

8.  Obama wants to build a stronger economy and create more jobs for Islamic terrorists while dismantling our economy and putting more Americans on the unemployed, under-employed, and no longer looking for work rolls.

9.  Obama wants ALL illegals who are caught in this country driving while DUI/DWI to be set free while ignoring the federal law “equal protection under the law” and wanting all others to be prosecuted.  Remember, Islamic terrorists are coming into this country across our southern border.

10.  Obama has enabled Illegals to move about the country without ID. That includes Islamic terrorists.

11.  Obama let thousands of illegals free from ICE control. How many were Islamic terrorists?  No one knows.

12.  Obama has said Americans who own firearms are a threat to the country, yet his administration has taken NO STEPS to close down the more than 20 Islamic terrorist training sites scattered around the country, even in light of the ISIS global threat, and direct threats against the US by ISIS.

13.  Obama refused to give Jordan and Egypt any intelligence on ISIS after those countries requested that help after the burning to death of a Jordanian pilot and the beheadings of Egyptian Christians by Islamic terrorists.

14.  Obama has said he would like to set up a coalition to “make it more difficult terrorists to travel between Syria and Iraq, but there is no mention of slowing the influx of terrorists into the US.

15.  Obama falsely claimed Al Qaeda was destroyed and was no longer a threat in spite of OUR military leader’s statements which contradicted Obama’s claims.

16.  Obama wasted the sacrifice of thousands of US and Arab military by prematurely pulling military support to fight ISIS.

17.  Obama will meet with terrorist sympathizers, but will not meet with Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu.

18.  Obama tries to give Islamic terrorists credibility by comparing today’s Islamic terrorists to the Crusades of 900 years ago, while ignoring the brutality of Muslims before, during, and after the Crusades.

19.  Obama is helping Iran acquire nuclear weapons through weak negotiations with Iran.

20.  Obama states that one’s religious sect cannot be a contributing factor when identifying the perpetrator or victim of an attack, assault, murder, butchery, and the like… except when a Muslim is killed by a non-Muslim in the US. Then, it is critical to identify the victim by religious sect.

21.  And so forth.

In OUR justice system, a person is charged criminally when a felony is committed.    Additionally, others who supported the act such as a driver, one who planned the act, one who funded the act, one who provided equipment to commit the act, and more are criminally charged also.  Again… one who provides assistance to those who commit criminal acts is chargeable!

In President Obama, we have a man who has done everything in his power to empower Islamic terrorists to commit murders, rapes, assaults, butchery, debasement, beheadings, burnings of people to death, mass murders, and-on-and-on.

Now… do you remember Obama’s PROMISE during his first run for the presidency…  “Change you can count on”?  He was very vague in his explanation of what that meant.  In fact, he gave no indication of what “transformations” he would bring.  He leads by secrecy, deceit, misstatements, deflection, and other means necessary to achieve his agendas.

By his own admissions, he is a Muslim.  By his own actions, he supports Islamic terrorism.  By his own words, he will transform this country.

How does that go… “If it looks like a duck, acts like a duck, and quacks like a duck, it’s a duck”?

I’m really worried about what kind of “duck” we have in Obama.

What We Do Not Say or Do Says Everything

28 Jan

As far back as we can go, there has always been a disdain for people who witness criminal acts, and instead of trying to help the victim, we watch and say nothing; we watch and do nothing.

Cheap entertainment when women are raped… people watch… they say nothing… they do nothing.  People of all races, ages, and physical condition get assaulted… people say nothing… people do nothing.  The continuing “knock out” game being a prime example.  People watch as others are degraded, injured, maimed, killed: and when are asked to help the victims by reporting what they saw… it’s often the same story… “I know nothing”.  Cute when used in the sit-com Hogan’s Heroes where there were no real victims.  But when people take no action to help others being assaulted, there are very real, and often serious consequences for the victims, often life changing.

People often say “I don’t want to get involved.  The presumption being they don’t want to be inconvenienced by having to appear in court to testify; they don’t want to be bothered by having to take time off from work, they don’t want their daily routine to be altered in the least.

Assaults are different than cases of burning buildings, car accidents and the like in that with these types of incidents there are no perpetrators.  Observers run no risk of getting involved in court actions, police reports, ridicule from special interest groups, verbal attacks from race baiters, and so on.

Then I ask myself why is it that people will ignore assaults on our way of life; saying nothing, and doing nothing?  And so it goes as we watch the deterioration of our way of life: our customs, our laws, our eating habits, our various religious practices, our legal institutions, and-on-and-on.

We are being invaded by people of a different way of life; different customs, different laws, different eating habits, a very different religious outlook, a different legal institution, a different way of treating women, a different practice in accepting people of a different lifestyle, a drive to change the very fabric of our way of life.  All these changes being aggressively pushed on us; changes that will effect everything about how we live…and we say nothing… we do nothing.

We watch Islamic extremists butcher, rape, assault, kill, beat, dismember, perform honor killings, and so on.  We listen and watch as Muslims in OUR country and other western countries say nothing… and do nothing.

I wonder what the hell has happened in our land where the fear of offending people who come to this land to live with us… to live as we live has taken hold, leaving us unwilling to stand up and say “this is America, if you are not willing to embrace our way of life… go back where you came from”.  I wonder if it is just a bad dream; but I know it is much more.  It is an entire people unwilling to defend their homeland.

For what we do not say, and what we do not do says everything.

Our Cost to Pay for Illegals

25 Jan

Reposted:

“Mr. Legal” and “Mr. Illegal.”

You have two families: “Mr. Legal” and “Mr. Illegal.” Both families have two parents, two children, and live in  California .

1.. Mr. Legal works in construction, has a Social Security Number and makes $25.00 per hour with taxes deducted.

Mr. Illegal also works in construction, has NO Social Security Number, and gets paid $15.00 cash “under the table.”

Ready? Now pay attention…

2.. Mr. Legal: $25.00 per hour x 40 hours = $1000.00 per week, or $52,000.00 per year. Now take 30% away for state and federal tax; Mr. Legal now has $31,231.00.

Mr. Illegal: $15.00 per hour x 40 hours = $600.00 per week, or $31,200.0 0 per year. Mr. Illegal pays no taxes. Mr. Illegal now has $31,200.00.

3.. Mr. Legal pays medical and dental insurance with limited coverage for his family at $600.00 per month, or $7,200.00 per year. Mr. Legal now has $24,031.00.

Mr. Illegal has full medical and dental coverage through the state and local clinics and emergency hospitals at a cost of $0.00 per year. Mr. Illegal still has $31,200.00.

4.. Mr. Legal makes too much money and is not eligible for food stamps or welfare. Joe Legal pays $500.00 per month for food, or $6,000.00 per year.   Mr. Legal now has $18,031.00.

Mr. Illegal has no documented income and is eligible for food stamps, WIC and welfare.   Mr. Illegal still has $31,200.00.

5.. Mr. Legal pays rent of $1,200.00 per month, or $14,400.00 per year.  Mr. Legal now has 9,631.00.

Mr. Illegal receives a $500.00 per month Federal Rent Subsidy. Mr. Illegal pays out that $500.00 per month, or $6,000.00 per year. Mr. Illegal still has $31,200.00.

6.. Mr. Legal pays $200.00 per month, or $2,400.00 for car insurance. Some of that is uninsured motorist insurance. Mr. Legal now has $7,231.00.

Mr. Illegal says, “We don’t need no stinkin’ insurance!” and still has $31,200.00.

7.. Mr. Legal has to make his $7,231.00 stretch to pay utilities, gasoline, etc…

Mr. Illegal has to make his $31,200.00 stretch to pay utilities, gasoline, and what he sends out of the country every month.

8.. Mr. Legal now works overtime on Saturdays or gets a part time job after work.

Mr. Illegal has nights and weekends off to enjoy with his family and friends.

9.. Mr. Legal’s and Mr. Illegal’s children both attend the same elementary school.  Mr. Legal pays for his children’s lunches, while

Mr. Illegal’s children get a government sponsored lunch.  Mr. Illegal’s children have an after school ESL program.  Mr. Legal’s children go home.

10.. Now, when they reach college age, Mr. Legal’s kids may not get into a State School and may not qualify for scholarships, grants or other tuition help, even though Mr. Legal has been paying for State Schools through his taxes.

Mr. Illegal’s kids “go to the head of the class” because they are a minority.

11.. Mr. Legal and Mr. Illegal both enjoy the same police and fire services, but Mr. Legal paid for them and Mr. Illegal did not pay.

Do you get it, now?

If you vote for, or support any politician that supports illegal aliens, you are part of the FREAK’n problem!

It’s way PAST time to take a stand for America and LEGAL Americans!

You Worry Me

23 Jan

AN AMERICAN AIRLINES PILOT SPEAKS HIS MIND

No name calling, no hatred, no political agenda.

CANADIAN COMMENT APPEARS AT THE END OF THE ARTICLE AND IS MEANINGFUL.

THERE IS ALSO SOME RECENTLY ADDED BRITISH COMMENT.

This pilot hit the nail right on the head in his open letter.

A newspaper stated that some Muslim doctor is saying we are profiling  him because he has been checked three times while getting on an airplane. The following is a letter from a pilot. This well – spoken man, who is a pilot with American Airlines, says what is in his heart, beautifully.

YOU WORRY ME!

By Captain John Maniscalco, American Airlines Pilot

I’ve been trying to say this since 911, but you worry me. I wish you didn’t.  I wish when I walked down the streets of this country that I love, that your color and culture still blended with the beautiful human landscape we enjoy in this country. But you don’t blend in anymore.  I notice you, and it worries me. I notice you because I can’t help it anymore.  People from your homelands, professing to be Muslims, have been attacking and killing my fellow citizens and our friends for more than 20 years now. I don’t fully understand their grievances and hate, but I know that nothing can justify the inhumanity of their attacks.

On September 11, ARAB-MUSLIMS hijacked four jetliners in my country. They cut the throats of women in front of children and brutally stabbed to death others, hacking their necks, over and over, with box    cutters. They took control of those planes and crashed them into buildings, killing thousands of proud fathers, loving sons, wise grandparents, elegant daughters, best friends, favorite coaches, fearless public servants, and children’s mothers.

The Palestinians celebrated, the Iraqis were overjoyed as was most of the Arab world. So, I notice you now. I don’t want to be worried. I don’t want to be consumed by the same rage, hate and prejudice that has destroyed the soul of these terrorists. But I need your help. As a rational American, trying to protect my country and family in an irrational and unsafe world, I must know how to tell the difference  between you, and the Arab/Muslim terrorist.

How do I differentiate between the true Arab/Muslim Americans and the Arab/Muslim terrorists in our communities who are attending our schools, enjoying our parks, and living in OUR communities under the protection of OUR constitution, while they plot the next attack that will slaughter MORE of the same good neighbors and children?

The events of September 11 changed the answer… It is not MY responsibility to determine which of you embraces our great country, with ALL of its religions, with ALL of its different citizens, with all of its faults. It is time for every Arab/Muslim in this country to determine it for me.

I want to know, I DEMAND to know and I have a right to know, whether or not you love America …… Do you pledge allegiance to its flag? Do you proudly display it in front of your house, or on your car? Do you pray in your many daily prayers that Allah will bless this nation; that He will protect it and let it prosper? Or do you pray that Allah will destroy it in one of your Jihads? Are you thankful for the freedom that this   nation affords?  A freedom that was paid for by the blood of hundreds of thousands of patriots, who have through our history, given their lives for this country?  Are you willing to preserve this freedom by also paying the ultimate sacrifice? Do you love America?? If this is your commitment, then I need YOU to start letting ME know about it.

Your Muslim leaders in this nation should be flooding the media at this time with hard facts on your faith, and what hard actions YOU are taking as a community and as a religion to protect the United States of America. Please, no more benign overtures of regret for the death of the innocent, because I worry about who you regard as innocent…. No more benign overtures of condemnation for the unprovoked attacks, because I worry about what is unprovoked to you. I am not interested in any more sympathy; I am interested only in action. What will you do for America – our great country – at this time of continuing crisis, at this time of war?

I want to see Arab-Muslims waving the AMERICAN flag in the streets. I want to hear you chanting ‘Allah Bless America’. I want to see young Arab/Muslim men enlisting in the military. I want to see a commitment of money, time and emotion to the victims of this butchering and to our returning wounded and to this nation as a whole.

The FBI has had a long list of people they’ve wanted to interact with regarding the threats that they believe to be ongoing. Many of these people live and socialize right now in Muslim communities. You know them. You know where they are. Give the FBI a heads up as to where they maybe. Better yet, hand them over to us, NOW! But I have seen little even approaching this sort of action. Instead I have seen an already closed and secretive community close even tighter. You have disappeared from the streets. You have posted armed security guards at your facilities. You have threatened lawsuits. You have screamed for protection from reprisals.

The very few Arab/Muslim representatives, like CARE, that HAVE appeared in the media were defensive and equivocating. They seemed more concerned with making sure that the United States apologize and take responsibility for actions defending our own people. They seemed more concerned with protecting their fellow Muslims from violence directed towards them in the United States and abroad than they did with supporting our country and denouncing ‘leaders’ like the late Khadafy, the late Hussein, Farrakhan, and the late Arafat.

If the true teachings of Islam proclaim tolerance and peace and love for all people, then I want chapter and verse from the Koran and statements from popular Muslim leaders to back it up. What good is it if the teachings in the Koran are good, pure, and true, when your ‘leaders’ ARE teaching fanatical inter-pretations, terrorism, and intolerance? It matters little how good Islam SHOULD BE if huge numbers of the world’s Muslims interpret the teachings of Mohammed incorrectly and adhere to a degenerative form of the religion. A form that has been demonstrated to us over and over again. A form whose structure is built upon a foundation of violence, death, and suicide. A form whose members are recruited from the prisons around the world. A form whose members (some as young as five years old) are seen day after day, week in and week out, year after year, marching in the streets around the world, burning effigies of our presidents, burning the American flag, shooting weapons into the air. A form whose members convert from a peaceful religion, only to take up arms against the great United States of America, the country of their birth. A form whose rules are so twisted, that their traveling members refuse to show their faces at airport security checkpoints, in the name of Islam.

We will NEVER allow the attacks of September 11, or any others for that matter, to take away that which is so precious to us — our rights under the greatest constitution in the world. I want to know where every Arab Muslim in this country stands and I think it is my right and the right of every true citizen of this country to DEMAND it. A right paid for by the blood of thousands of my brothers and sisters who died protecting the very constitution that is protecting you and your family.

I am pleading with you to let me know. I want you here as my brother, my neighbor, my friend, as a fellow American…… But there can be no grey areas or ambivalence regarding your allegiance,  and it is up to YOU, to show ME where YOU stand. Until then, ” YOU WORRY ME!”

CANADIAN  COMMENTS:

I  totally agree with this sentiment. I hope you will forget all about the ‘political correctness’ mandate we’ve had rammed down our throats by so many on the left, and see if this doesn’t ring true in your heart and mind. For Canada, with all the multiculturalism we’ve been told is so important…. why should we not, as Canadians, expect that the millions of new people immigrating to our country will show their love for our country, their allegiance to our country, their willingness to obey the laws of our country, and acceptance that we are a Christian country? Just because they are able to enjoy exercising their own religion, they should NOT expect us to be ashamed of ours. They knew Canada was a Christian country when they came here. Why are we erasing Christianity because immigrants who are unwilling to adopt our way of life expect us to? There is just too much insanity in the world, and we have to start taking a stand. I hope you will forward this, so that others will feel they are not alone if they are starting to feel the same.

BRITISH COMMENTS:

At last a clear non – racist example of the concerns that the vast majority of our Nations population probably share. The pilot’s letter encapsulates all that is fair and just about national pride and protection of one’s national culture. I fear it may be too late here in UK, BUT we too want our country back in the form that attracted all these different cultures to come here in the first place!! In all our conversations with a wide range of friends and acquaintances we have not met one that disagrees with our own views.

If only we all had the courage of our convictions to pass this on, it is a statement that should be accepted as the heart-felt feelings of someone with honest commendable national pride.

Not all Muslims are terrorists but all terrorists to date have been Muslims. Stand up and be counted!

Australian Comment :

Best email I have had in years it needs to be in every paper every day until we get some answers.

LET’S SATURATE NEW ZEALAND, AUSTRALIA, UK, EUROPE, USA, CANADA AND THE REST OF THE FREE WORLD WITH THIS ONE!

Toxic MSNBC

28 May

Why anyone listens to commentators on MSNBC is a mystery to me.  MSNBC is toxic… a player in a larger scheme; a scheme controlled by a few who employ tactics to achieve their personal goals of control, wealth and power.  Their employers have engaged us in a war… a war where the winner takes all; our freedoms the prize.  Theories about conducting warfare, tried and proven, have condensed into two “maxims of war”… know your enemy, and divide and concur.

What is there to know about people living in the united States of America?  We are no different than other countries populations; we have differences between the many peoples who live here, we have a self-interest in that we want ourselves, family, friends, and associates to be more successful and get those good paying jobs over other competitors; we want the same “breaks” given others; we don’t want our group of people attacked or slandered by non-members.  And the list goes on.

As for divide and concur; the smaller a group, the easier it is to control… to influence.  The more divisions you can put between groups of people and between people within given groups, the larger the number of groups, the smaller a group’s membership, and the more control which can be exercised over them… the way they see things, the way they think, the way the act; all this by controlling the “information” they are exposed to .  What types of “tools” could be used to divide a population into large groups… religion, gender, race, ethnicity, language, dress, citizenship status just to name a few.  What if we further divide those groups by one’s likes or interests, political views, income level, sexual orientation, again just to name a few.  What say we divide those smaller groups by the way the dress, the way they act, adornments they wear, the neighborhood they live in.

Maybe if one religion was subjected to regulations which required members to violate their belief system, and another religion’s membership was encouraged to exercise their belief system unencumbered; better understanding and acceptance between the groups hindered..  What would happen if one group of people were encouraged to broadcast hate speech against other groups, but the groups being targeted were not allowed to respond in kind?  Perhaps a member of one group was allowed to commit felonies without fear of punishment, while members of other groups were under constant surveillance for the slightest violation of law?  One group of people might be given benefits for free which would put them on an equal or higher standard of living than those who were being taxed to pay for the freebies.  Perhaps two people would commit identical crimes, the media showering one perpetrator with sympathy while the other is crucified.

There are a thousand ways to divide people.  And so, there are a thousand ways to guide people, to urge people to think and act a certain way…  Give only one side of a story.  Don’t report a story.  Harp on a story.  Allow inflammatory language and innuendo.  Employ character assassination.  Incite by using hate speech.  Key on differences between people rather than things they have in common.

MSNBC commentators specialize in the use of these tactics; often saying things to create anger, dislike and distrust between groups.  Why does MSNBC use these misinformation tactics?  They are paid to.  It is a game… a slight of hand as old as time itself, yet, it remains as effective as the very first time it was employed.  They know that simple words, no matter how utterly untrue or bizarre can be used to anger, incite, calm, inform, or misinform the masses.  Commentators use these tactics to manipulate how people think, what they think, how they perceive things.  Create a commotion… everyone looks… no one sees what happened on the side.  People’s attention is drawn away from real life changing events which are hidden from public consumption; swallowed whole by the information machine.

We have been studied, dissected, placed into our assigned groups, indoctrinated, manipulated, and most have no idea why they think the things they do, or why they think them.  We are unwitting accomplices in our own downfall; many having not a single grain of understanding as to what is being done to us as a country… as a people.

As for MSNBC, I wouldn’t waste a single second of my valuable time allowing them to attempt to change who or what I am.

Common Corpse Math… A Perspective

14 May

Common Corpse math… math designed to yield the highest national grade averages possible by teaching for the LOWEST possible “common” denominator.  Remember… no student left behind means everyone has to receive the same grades.  Why do all students have to get the same grades… because if there were students graduating high school with A’s and others with D’s, the ones with the D’s would be left behind in furthering their education, and left behind in job opportunities.  If all graduating students had A’s B’s, then the playing field would be level, and everyone would have equal opportunity for college and jobs… or would they?

Common Corpse does not “teach” math… it is designed to elicit mechanical type responses to the most basic of mathematical problems… it programs the way children think, the way they puzzle solve, the way they reason.  So… can OUR students graduating high school have an equal opportunity for college and job opportunities?

The “common” folk’s children will be on a level playing field, as they would have all been “dumbed down” to the same lowest level.   I wonder… do the elitists enroll their children in public schools, or do they tend to enroll their children in private schools?  Hmm… do these elitist private schools teach Common Corpse?  If they do, then we should see a surge in the number of common folk’s children going to college, and a smaller percentage of the elitist’s children going.  After all… isn’t that the purpose of Common Corpse… to give EVERYONE an equal shot at the American dream?  To apply the “equal opportunity” philosophy across the board would mean every college and university should have a number of common folk’s children enrolled equal to their percentage of the high school graduating population.  Oh, but to have to add in all other groups of people by percentage would be a real booger.  It would be much easier to just have the elitist’s children continue to have the upper hand.  Anyways… even if the elite send their children to private schools which teach Common Corpse, they have the money to pay for tutors… whoops, there goes the equal opportunity out the window.

What about competition from the “illegals” community.  More and more colleges are giving in-state tuition rates to illegals, so OUR children have less opportunity to go to college as fewer seats are available.  We really need to make sure other countries students get educated ahead of our own in the name of political correctness.  It’s best to dumb down our children to make more room for illegals to get educated in our institutions.  I know it is probably not the plan… but it is the results of the action that count.  WAIT!  What about foreign countries?

Can Common Corpse students compete on an international level?  Will our children be able to compete here in the united States against foreign students wishing to study here?  Are all countries lowering their standards to give the global community of students an equal opportunity?  The federal government’s taking over our education system has resulted in a down trend as can be seen by our continued drop in our global standing when it comes to math.  Maybe under Common Corpse the correct answer to the question is the bigger or higher the rating number, the better we are doing.

I wonder when OUR children can no longer perform advanced math like algebra, probability, calculus, differential equations, where will all our mathematicians, physics scholars, engineers, bankers, pilots, and so on come from?  Those jobs will not just disappear because our own students cannot learn advanced math based on their basic, and I do mean basic, math skills.  There are only three possibilities; those illegals getting in-state tuition will get those jobs; foreign students will get those jobs; or those jobs will follow our manufacturing industry and go overseas.  Let’s face it; there is not a single company out there that will hire a person who needs a paper, a pencil, and room to draw out every math problem that comes across a desk when there are others who can do “mental math”.  It looks possible that our children could very well be subjugated to working for the elitist’s children, for illegals, for foreigners, or be flipping burgers for their adult life.  Can you imagine a pilot pulling out a pencil and paper while flying the commercial airlines you happen to be a passenger on, then drawing out a picture of a navigation problem which might include such things as air speed, turning rate, distance flown to complete a turn; or how about when a fuel leak develops and the pilot is drawing pictures to figure out the amount of fuel remaining, the fuel burn rate at different speeds, the distance that can be covered based on those computations, then determining which alternate airport to fly to.  I can see it in my mind’s eye now… you’re enjoying a cup of coffee, or maybe an alcoholic beverage… then you hear it over the speaker system… “Folks, we’re having a small problem.  We’re losing fuel; I’m drawing pictures on my official airline pad of paper trying to figure out if there is an alternate airport we can land at.  I’ve got the first of 37 drawings done; it will only be another 20 to 25 minutes before I can figure this out.  To help keep you all calm, the excessive drinking light has been turned on”.  How about the “Sorry about that small miscalculation midflight; I was trying to draw those pesky pictures as fast as I could when heavy winds blew us slightly off course; anyways, I’ve been informed by our jihadist hosts that we will all be on internet this evening… time to make those last “goodbye” calls to your loved ones, and once again, thank you for flying with Common Corpse Airlines.  Oh yeah…

Remember, all students must be able to compete.  So all students have to have grades they can compete with.  Not all students can grasp math, so all students will be taught to that level so everyone is equal.

It should be obvious to any parent who gives a damn about their children’s future that Common Corpse math is the worst thing they can expose their children to as it written at the LOWEST level of learning… drawing out the most basic of math problems with pictures instead of mastering addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.  And when it is time to learn more advanced math equations… how in God’s name could any student perform when the LOWEST “common” denominator of proficiency is the standard.

If all students can perform at the LOWEST level, and grade structures are reformatted to that level, more students get A’s and B’s, fewer get D’s and F’s, and everything looks hunky dory.  And it sounds warm and fuzzy.

I wonder… would students be better off refusing to do Common Core math and learn the more advanced and time-tested math so they could balance their checkbook, compute miles per gallon on a trip, compute a tip, count their change from a purchase, do their own taxes, just do the basics to live life; or would they be better of getting A’s and B’s in school learning how to draw pictures.

Just as a side note; it seems that every time we look at a program or mandate that encompasses “political correctness”, it leaves so many “dead in the water” in its wake.  No matter… as long as the “right” people are being left behind… Oh yeah!
