@Jeffofnh......I'ts not just the youth. It's also the parents. My kids both went through public schools and graduated and don't for a moment believe this crap. I was always asking them what they were being taught in school and then their mother and I would re-educate them. When you do that from a young age by the time they get to highscrewl the can see the fraud. Then I taught them to learn the material, pass the required testing and through it away. It's the dummy parents that allow it that are just as much to blame as the teachers.
The generation of parents of today's kids are Generation X, the famously libertarian-conservative generation that bucks government authority and are more or less highly capitalistic, pro gun, pro rights and individualistic (there are lots of sociological studies that point this out, btw). Most GenX parents I know are reverting voluntarily back to the "mom at home, dad at work" model and are actively involved in their kids' lives and educations.
Their grandparents on the other hand, baby boomers, are by and large hard edged statists. And don't get me started on "the greatest generation" that cheered FDR from start to finish.
@GOAST....I don't know where you live, but I live in a college town in The Big Sky that most would think was overwhelmingly conservative and I'm not seeing it Buddy. Most of the conservative parents here are asleep. Our schools are as socialist here as anywhere else. Yea, theres some conservative home schoolers but not all that many.
@Motonut, I fully agree with you. I taught my kids to do what it takes to pass the course. I would then re-educate them to fully understand what is go today.

Another mindless useful idiot!

Progressives, The very rich progressives are using YOU! The useful idiots on protesting on Wall Street are being used. The rich like Roseanne Barr, Michael Moore, and Susan Saradon who made millions through Capitalism are using you? They will go back to their gated communities nice and warm while you useful idiots are cold on Wall Street.
Do you really think the rich progressive are going to give up their millions. If you do, you are dreaming. Try protesting or occupying their neighbor or house. They would be the first to call the police.
YOU ARE BEING USED!

Yea this guy has made tons of money through Home Depot by importing from China. But who bought the Chinese junk, we did. I worked at Lowes, and I can’t tell you how many times people buy China made crap because the customer wanted to “save a few bucks”.
We are quick to blame others when we did this mess to ourselves.

They should give them the pot before they vote. At least then there is a good chance they will vote for the wrong person. :-)
