Education in AmeriKKKA!

What happened to wood shop? Autoshop? Metalshop? I made a cutting board, and I was real proud whenever my Mom used it. I learned to fix the wiring in a lamp!  Of course, this helped me as a writer.  Not! But it helped me as a Man.

It helped me as a teenager, and I now as a pre-geezer, (age 42) I listen to all these political hacks constantly promote nothing except Math and Science to complete with the Chinese Students who live in China.

Question? What if you aren't good at Math and Science? Is it fair that education is now geared only to Math and Science and not towards wood shop, auto shop, electrical shop, Music and Art Education?

But we have to compete with those Indian/Chinese kids who study year round? You mean those kids that come over here to learn from our professors while sitting next to Johnny and Jill Appleseed?

Come on you know that's bulls*it!

Their education is not better than ours, it's geared in one direction though. It may work for their country but I'm sure that there are educators who have looked into the long term health of the China's Educational system that do not support Math and Science solely being the focus.

So, what's really going on?  Well, the death of American Manufacturing for one?  We ain't making nothing and if we are we want it cheap!

Americans want to be able to make a decent living from their work. They want to get paid.  No one wants to work in a sweat shop for sweat shop pay but that's exactly what certain segments of the American Private Sector seemed to be gearing us for. But I digress!

Here we are battling Real Education versus Volk Education in a very real way.  Real Education means that you study everything indeptly with the intent on running things.  This has been set aside for the children of the financial elite.   And then there's Volk (Citizen or People) Education.  That's public education with an emphasis on making good Citizens or State Soldiers.   That's right! They want you to be clones, drones, automatons.  Yeah, I said it! And it's true.

Public School Education is geared to get the working class kids to do what?  March in lockstep.  Don't believe me? Look at any elementary school in the inner city.  Kids come through one gate, show id to a guard, wear a uniform and may have recess on a fenced in playground. Surprise they going to prison?  You shouldn't be. They've been trained for it.  Go to Prison cause there are not real viable economic opportunities available and build that General Electric Washing Machine in a Private Prison Workshop for 18 cents a day that they sell to you for $800.00 while they lay off thousands of machinists while crying poor.

Am I lying?  Have I told ya wrong? No and ya know it but is you mad enough to do something about it?
First thing.  Do NOT Vote Republican under any circumstances.  Support President Obama and Kick out any Democrats that don't support a PROGRESSIVE AGENDA.

Go to the local Education Boards and start demanding a REAL EDUCATION and REMOVING THE Apparatus that creates Citizen Soldiers Education.

Just a thought!

Newt! Black Folks can give an Eff about Welfare!

Republican Stalwart Newt Gingrich is throwing out his Racist code word vitriol again mentioning Black People and Welfare to us as if it's an issue that we care about.

Fact: Black People are 13 % of the American Population.

That means the majority of people on welfare are WHITE People! Talk to them about taking away their welfare. Talk to White People about removing any social welfare programs, and about why the Republicans have do not want to extend unemployment benefits.

Fact: In 1996, a massive welfare reform bill was passed by Newt and the 100 congress and signed into law by President Bill Clinton. The law limited how long a person can stay on welfare and then they had to go to work.  It even had a jobs program.  Problem with jobs programs is that they are low wage jobs that you can't pay rent, health care, or childcare with.

Where are the jobs?  I don't see the Republicans introducing any legislation to penalize corporations that have sent jobs overseas and continue to do so.

Black People are not the Problem with America Newt and various Republican White Folks.  The Problem with America is YOU and those who think like you.

Happy New Year You Racist Tools!
BE Careful! BE Mindful! BE Prayerful!
