Something to hopefully make your Monday a little better…
@TexasEskimo Well, that went really well!
Mat Best and his crew over at Black Rifle Coffee, and Drinkin Bros are unapologetic and hilarious but very very “blue” and often dark, most of it definitely NSFW. Grab his book Thank You For My Service, it’s excellent insight into his background and how his humor was derived and why he does what he does (they are a Veterans for Veterans type of group supporting a bunch of different Veteran efforts). .
I love his “rap battle” videos. Again, NSFW…but hilarious (IMO).
The mom… “I want an abortion”.
Matt Best is the BEST
But a bit sad, as the best humor is based on facts… Glad my folks are Conservative. Don’t have to look around too much to see the other side can be quite a bit violent.
Sorry to say but this is where our country has gone over the last 10 years. And I blame Obama for it all. with his racist views and his George Soros ONE WORLD ORDER POLICIES. And now days it is all that the dems seem to care about. And that is they want ALL OF THE POWER to tell use what to do, what we have to have, and everything that we cannot have or do. And this is just SOCIALIST COUNTRY GOVERNMENTS RUN.
Not a fan of Obama, but this has been going on for a lot longer than 10 years. Look at the education system. Remember Civics? Now it is Social Studies… Wonder why? I would love to know how many graduating High School students actually know how many seats are in the Congress, Senate, and how laws are passed at the federal level.
If people don’t know their rights, it is much easier to take them away.
Seems to me it was around and about the late 1970’s. A Lot of things started going bad when corporate radiers started chucking large capital rich businesses into the trash heap and took a second helping as they liquidated employee retirement programs. Does “the rich get richer…” sound familiar? So not only did the historically limited populations have reason to not trust anyone, the American middle class watched a lot of the promises that worked for their parents generation disappear a bit at a time. Even though it was obvious, many of us couldn’t believe it was happening, righteous, or just so blatantly done with no protections from our governing bodies. Either these people were just as flabbergasted or complicit beneficiaries of political “lobbying.”
It seems we need to clean the kitchen, there are too many cockroaches we can see here on the floor and I’m certain there are hundreds if not thousands more hidden in the cabinets… I just need to figure out how to do it quickly and effectively - in accordance with the legal guidance of our Constitution and protections under the Bill of Rights.
@Fred_G, I remember taking ‘Social Studies’ in elementry school (7th grade) in 1964…in California. Yeah, it’s been a lot more than 10 years.
Fred you are correct in part. Many school districts a.have abandoned Social Studies, and civics along with State and U S. Constitution classes. But not all. Under George W. Bush and the No Child Left Behind Act emphasis was placed on English/Language Arts, Math and Science. Test scores in those three areas were tied directly to federal funding so guess what subjects suffered? Some States like Missouri still require State and U.S. Constitution classes, but I can only vouch for Missouri’s requirements. Since your State mandates curriculum it is up to voters to let political types know that they want emphasis returned to Civics and the other forgotten subjects. Sadly I’ve seen massive voter input when you try to scale back basketball but little is done when those forgotten subjects get cut.
@Michael7 This is the disastrous results we are seeing now in the chambers of the US Congress in my opinion by the Congress I am referring to the lower chamber not the upper most if not all of the Senate are of the age where they studied Civics and Government at their younger age in grade and high school. When I was younger there was no Junior High or 1-6 and 6-8. It was 1-8 then High School, and College. In my opinion young people don’t know civics which is not completely their fault because they never studied it but; they don’t get a lifelong pass if they’re a congressional member they should have studied Civics if they had been inclined towards elected office.
In my opinion this was one of the worst pieces of legislation for education. It made teachers lower their standards and push student through when in some cases they should not have been (my son fell into this category) because of learning disabilities.
Instead of holding them back a year (yes he got extra help both at school and at home) send them to a doctor and put them on meds.
I am going to stop before I get worked up (as I know I will)
It would only be the 127th Trimester. That’s reasonable. Right?
I both feel your pain and have witnessed first hand the injustice called No Child Left Behind. Most of the teachers I know, myself included, referred to it as No Child Gets Ahead.
This is what happens when government gets involved. We have got to rein in government and return power to the people.
To be clear,
I am not blaming the teachers. They have to do what the administration tells them to do.
I had a conference with one of his teachers and told them he should be kept back as it would have helped in his overall development.
That is when I learned they were not allowed to keep a child back that was meeting at least half of the absolute minimum requirements.
Hey we are good. I know the struggles many parents have with schools and their children. I’ve been on both sides at the same time and I can tell you many school administrators do not play fair. They are mostly bean counters who only worry about the bottom line. My best wishes to you and yours.
