Again, I did not pay attention to his second point. No I don't agree that this is a lefties agenda but I do blame the Democrats for playing games throughout the sixties and seventies with the core of our educational delivery. For instance math was put in the back burner through dummying and blatant simplification of concepts because it was a subject that filtered many people that lived in the lower classes that had poor access to tutors or strong mentoring. Unfortunately these same classes were a good chunk of the voting volume for the Dems, so you can now imagine the rest.

Last I heard Libreal Ideology is not and never has been a required subject in the nations public schools. Readuing, writing and Arithmatic is....
"Readuing, writing and Arithmatic is..." Laugh Riot!

Mi$ter Right.

I agree with the first part as well. It's the second part that begs the question on the mental stability of the poster.
