CAN’T WRITE CURSIVE?


Copperplate by Melissa Ann Sorrells

It blew my mind a couple of months ago when I learned my two oldest grandchildren didn’t know how to write cursive!   They were not taught cursive in school.   They are 13 and 11 years of age.   I was learning cursive in first grade.  I never gave this much thought until recently there was a local news story asking if they should teach cursive in school again.   Again, it blows my mind they don’t.

It doesn’t matter that letters are going to be typed on the computer or high tech type writer.   I use the computer a lot……there are times I still need to write.   There are still papers, documents etc. that need a signature!   I prefer a cursive signature, not only is it faster it looks better.   Its your signature, its like a thumb print.

My point, if they stopped teaching cursive writing, what else have they stopped teaching?

  3. THE PROBLEM IS IN AFFIRMATIVE ACTION WITH THIS. THE SAME IN EDUCATION, WE HAVE MADE EDUCATION EASY FOR THE BLACKS AND HISPANICS, SO THAT THEY COULD GET A HEAD WHILE THE REST OF US PAY THE PRICE AND SUFFER. YOU EITHER PERFORM LIKE YOU SHOULD, AND IF YOU DO NOT YOU SHOULD LEARN HOW LIKE EVERY BODY ELSE. OUR CULTURE HAS SUFFERED BECAUSE OF THIS. WHO IN THE HELL HEARD OF WATERING DOWN EDUCATION, IN RUSSIA THEIR SECOND GRADERS ARE LEARNING GEOMETRY AND ADVANCED LEVEL MATHEMATICS. IF YOU DISCIPLINE A CHILD AND ESPECIALLY A BLACK CHILD IN GETTING THEM LEARN WHAT THEY NEED FOR LIFE HEAVEN HELP YOU. SINCE WE DID DEMAND THE BEST OF OURSELVES THIS IS WHAT WE ARE IN RECEIPT OF, AND REALLY MOST OF THESE PEOPLE SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF WASTING THEIR LIVES AND OTHERS AS WELL. IT SHOULD BE LOOK YOURSELF IN THE MIRROR AND DEMAND WHAT YOU SEE TO BE THE BEST IN WHAT YOU DO. HELL NO NOT AMERICA AND THE WORLD FOLLOWING SUIT.

  4. Student Union Wants to Ban Clapping and Cheering Because it Excludes Deaf People

    I thought all of the PC fools were exclusive to the USA. Guess I am wrong.

    It looks like the PC-pathetic bug that has infected the entire USA is also alive and well across the pond in the UK. The foolish blokes and blokesess (new word) in the UK are just as wacky.

    What the PC fools need to do, start a new form of silent applauding called PC or Pretend Clapping. That should satisfy their PC-ignorance.

    Britain’s largest national student union has told attendees of its annual conference they would face “consequences” for cheering and clapping because these forms of expression exclude deaf people.

    I am positive; if 100% of the hearing impaired people were asked if clapping offended them, their answer would be an absolute NO.

    I have a few new PC objectives for the idiots that attended The National Union of Students (NUS) meeting where they came up up with this hair brain PC-pathetic idea.

    quit eating for all the people that can not swallow
    quit breathing for all the people that need oxygen assistance
    quit walking for all the invalid people
    quit thinking for all the people with brain injuries
    Last but not least, quit trying to change the world with your PC-pathetic foolishness

    As the old say goes; if it is not broke, why try to fix it?

    One of the things that is so scary about many of the PC-ers; they are supposed to be educated people who some day are going to be the leaders of this world. What a frightening thought.

    A SPECIAL NOTE to all the foolish kids at The National Union of Students (NUS); give it a rest dudes. You are like a cat on a slippery floor trying to run. Your mouth and feet are going 200 miles an hour and you are not even moving.

    I got very confused the other day. I was at the PC-mall and had to choke my chicken. I looked around for a restroom. There were 3 separate entrances. One said MEN’s room – the next said LADIES room and the last one said OTHER. I stood there for a few minutes, almost pissed my pants, trying to figure out what OTHER was.

    Now this was a time in history when there was really something to be upset about that needed change.
    NO COLORED ALLOWED

    Now don’t forget; the next time someone or something warrants applause; just be more PC-pathetic then you are already and PC, Pretend Clap. You will feel much better about yourselves.

    1. OMG! But for some reason not surprising. Your right it is scary to think they are future leaders, they’re already leading (wrong direction) with this kind of crap we are just supposed to swallow. A lot of it comes from weak nerds, so why aren’t we fighting that? Almost seems like they all suffer from little man syndrome. I guess there is truth to “strength in numbers”.

  5. I LOVE CURSIVE AS WELL, IT DOES GIVE AN ELEGANT APPEAL. I HAVE HEARD APPROXIMATELY FIVE YEARS AGO, THAT SCHOOLS ARE DOING AWAY WITH CURSIVE, AND JUST USING MANUSCRIPT, OR AS THEY SAY PRINTING. THE MILITARY HAS BEEN MAKING SOME CHANGES AS WELL. I HAVE CONCLUDED MANY MOONS AGO THIS WORLD IS NOT MY PLANET; AS YOU MAY GET MY DRIFT ON THIS. AS FOR MY MIND IT HAS BEEN BLOWN MANY MOONS AGO AS WELL. GIVE YOUR GRANDCHILDREN A HUG, AND I KNOW YOU CAN CURSIVE BETTER WITH THEM, THAN THE TEACHERS.

      1. BACK LONG BEFORE OUR TIME, TEACHERS WERE MUCH BETTER, WHEN THEY HAD GRADES ONE THROUGH EIGHT, IN A ONE ROOM SCHOOL HOUSE. TALK ABOUT MULTITASKING THAT WAS IT. THEM WERE THE DAYS WHEN WALKING TO AND FROM SCHOOL WAS ABOUT THREE TO FOUR MILES, IN BOTH DIRECTIONS.
