Did you ever watch The Tonight show with Jay Leno, where he would go out on the streets and ask questions randomly of those passing by? Now I am sure only those with the most ridiculous answers were aired, it was for comedy after all. Still, the fact people wouldn’t even know who their vice president was, or had little knowledge of current events etc. I apologize but for a lack of a better word, they were simply dumb, uneducated people, Americans.
Dumbing Down of America did occur and continues. Think about this, could this explain the mentality and intelligence (lack thereof) of our Congressional leaders and president? I will excuse Obama from this group, he learned very well from his mentor Saul Alinsky…..and college professors. He is executing Alinsky’s political philosophy of destroying the U.S. just as instructed. Our leaders just may be products of the Dumbing Down of America of our educational system.
Only 22 – 25% of voters will vote today, Tuesday Aug. 5 in Missouri. Lack of interest, lost hope…….is it all part of the Dumbing Down? This didn’t just happen over night. We don’t get involved, not enough of us anyway. Too many people either aren’t aware or don’t care what goes on in our country and the world. Too many zombies! Our society is too easily controlled by corrupt government and president. Dumbing Down is about control, keep us from thinking for ourselves.
I believe a lot of problems we face today could better be solved if it weren’t from a deteriorated education system. Am I off base here?
Its half past midnight, August 3rd present day. Unbelievably, pleasantly mild outside for summer in Missouri. There is evidence of an active skunk nearby, hopefully it has not sprayed my Siberian Husky. I call her Sky, Blackhawk’s Gray Sky is her registered name.
I have many thoughts bouncing around in my head, none related to the other, not directly anyway. I don’t recall my parents ever giving much thought and concern about the kind of world their children and grandchildren would live.
I have two adult sons and a daughter. After next month, all will be married. I have three wonderful grandsons, the youngest born seven months ago, an eight and ten-year old.
With all that is bad and wrong with the world, what will their lives be like? I know when my parents were growing up and while raising me, the world wasn’t perfect then either. My father fought in Korea. It was a violent world long before the present day; just seems like more of it spreading around. Then again, there were 2 wars that were world-wide. I guess it’s not much different now than the past after all.
I watched the movie NOAH this evening. You know the story, a corrupt world being destroyed by our Creator. God as He is known to me. Noah’s family was spared to give mankind a fresh, 2nd chance Thanks Noah but we haven’t done so well. Maybe my children and grandchildren (hoping for a granddaughter some day) along with yours will figure it out. I’ll pray they do.
I don’t want to wait until its too late if an Ebola outbreak does occur here in the U.S. , but you need to know what your government is doing. Just so you know. They have a tendency to keep things from us.
From the Blacklistednews.com
“The U.S. government will begin testing on people an experimental Ebola vaccine as early as September, after seeing positive results from tests on primates, according to media reports on Thursday. The National Institutes of Health’s infectious disease unit is working with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to put the vaccine into trial as quickly as possible, according to CNN and USA Today. The director of that unit could not be reached for comment.”
Hopefully this is one of the few things our government gets right. Our government agencies don’t have a particularly good history.
Take your comedy act on the road. Finish your term, keeping that wide opening in the lower part of your head (where the lips are) shut.
Nancy, you are an embarrassment to your home state and this nation. When you speak, your ridiculous self-defensive comments are heard around the nation and parts of the world. Do you understand people are laughing at you and because you are in a position of leadership, laughing at us? You are not alone though, Harry Reid, John Boehner, Joe Biden, King Obama and a cast of others share your company.
Most of the world is laughing at us America. Look at what has been misrepresenting our nation……we are not taken seriously. Those not laughing aren’t and haven’t been paying attention. We have lost most of our credibility with the world. Putin makes Obama look like a beaten Joker.
At the polls we need to thank our present office holders for trying, pat them on the back and say “see ya”.
Clean house and that means the White House as well. Obama, finish your term (he won’t impeached) quietly please. Keep Hillary away from the residence at Pennsylvania Ave. as well. Hillary is nothing more than “Obama in a skirt”. No offense to the rest of the ladies in our nation.
Together, we can clean up this mess.
