Ignorance is NOT Bliss!

The following headline was in the New York Times today.

Survey Finds Teenagers Ignorant on Basic History and Literature Questions

“Fewer than half of American teenagers who were asked basic history and literature questions in a phone survey knew when the Civil War was fought, and one in four said Columbus sailed to the New World some time after 1750, not in 1492.

The survey results, released on Tuesday, demonstrate that a significant proportion of teenagers live in “stunning ignorance” of history and literature, said the group that commissioned it, Common Core.”

We have spent how much money on education under GW and these are the results.

I am beginning to believe that this is a deliberate strategy by the “steal and spend” Republicans.

This is how you rewrite history folks. And this is how you control people with DELIBERATE misinformation.

The problem is that those who do not LEARN FROM HISTORY, are DOOMED to repeat it.

It’s up to us to keep the truth in the faces of the American people whether the like it or not. I don’t even want to think of the consequences if we don’t fight this.

Ignorance is NOT Bliss! It has produced this mess we are in.
