Loz, yeah, what would someone that graduated in the top 30% or better from Boston University with a double major in international relations and economics know about much of anything :rolleyes:

Pretty sure that you are thinking of Lauren Boebert. You know, the one that got her High School GED just a few months before she got elected and just about 2 years ago was running a bar on the verge of bankruptcy and now is worth over $41 million
Holy crap dude, your point more than anything shows how higher education degrees have become worthless if someone who earned such degrees still is a self proclaimed socialist.

Some of the dumbest MoFo’s I’ve ever seen have PhD’s… any monkey can memorize a textbook & ideological tenets, then pass a final exam declaring them “superior”…. yet ask them to remove a hammer by its handle from an open-end wet paper bag and prepare to be entertained with 45 minutes of consternation on full display.

Resisting , disobedience , non-compliance etc...
Are all worthy of doing.

However some things to consider here are :

There are consequences for every action , be prepared to accept whatever consequences come your way by doing the above.
When seeking change , be careful to not turn into that very thing , which you wish to change....

What is good for the goose is good for the gander as the old saying goes...
So...be careful of your criticism , when others who don't think like you , use the same methods to affect change , that you use or espouse .

At the end of the day....you have to live with the choices you have made..
Often those choices are not the "best"...but they are the "best" for that situation or moment...so that may have to do.

I’m seeing people with plenty of papers from college stumble over themselves unable to explain the difference between men and women while there are children in 3rd world countries who’ve never been to school who can easily do that.


The school system is broken.

That ain't know lie...I know one that is literally an alcoholic, meth-head with medically verified brain damage to included brain surgery. She was always an unstable mental case. The day she got her PhD I knew it was a worthless piece of garbage.

Guess what she does for a living...elementary school teacher, I would not let this dumbass watch my ex-mother-in law's cat, neither of which I care whether they lived or died. Growing up I use to believe a PhD and the Nobel Peace Prize meant something, were a big deal and something to be proud of, now I know a couple sheets of TP has more value.

Priceless! And yes, the system IS broken. Idiots running schools of "education" have been pouring Leftist nonsense into young would-be teachers brains for 30 years. When our oldest kid was a freshman in public high school, his Spanish teacher phoned to tell us her class was unruly and my kid was one of the lead clowns. When I replied "we'll be in your class tomorrow," she broke into tears, saying "nobody does that anymore." "We do." And we did. Next day, my wife and I dressed up like we were going to church and went to school. We're standing outside the class when here comes our son, ego bloated by athletic prowess, surrounded by a gaggle of adoring females. One pokes him in the ribs, nods toward us. The kid's jaw drops and he stops dead in his tracks. We sit behind him in class and watch, astonished at the buffoonery and lack of attention. Next day, my wife and I decided to put all three kids in private school. Expensive, but worth every penny. All three are now productive, responsible citizens. Ironically, the teacher phoned us a week later to tells us that because of our visit, the class was better behaved than it ever had been. And THAT's "better behaved?" My 4'8" Latin teacher, Miss Rosen, wouldn't have tolerated that level of idiocy and disrespect for 2 minutes. Sadly, gutsy teachers like her are now an endangered species.

Did the same thing to one of our sons for a math class, the poor math teacher saw me coming and thought I was there to tear into him…. should’ve seen the 500# weight come off him when I proceeded to tear my kid a new one right there in front of the entire class.

He went from C- to A- within the week.

My parents (likely your generation) did the same thing with my sister in middle school. No more issues after that.

I think the behavior thing is a combination of problems, but lack of parental involvement is definitely one of them, another one is the complete lack of effective consequences that teachers can dish out now, then there’s also the notion of the value of education and many people simply do not value education, therefore being at school and listening is just a waste of time.

I went through public school, but did honors/AP classes and had it not been for those it would have been a waste of time, things have significantly decayed since then however, and we are planning on home schooling. There is a massive amount of time wasted in each school day and if the learning items are simply laid out in a “to do list” of what needs to be learned, it doesn’t take that much time when not limited to the school systems implementation.

In my classroom I am consistently receiving students that are 2 grade levels behind where they should be (if not more), so there’s no way I am going to subject my kids to that, because even if I do my part (which I will) and my kid was the most academically skilled student in class, they would still suffer because the rigor of the class would never meet their academic needs.

I needed a good laugh. Thanks! Good satire sheds light on truth that's been hiding in plain sight. Once so many psychiatric facilities were shut down, craziness ran free to infect a wide swath of public life. When I was a kid, if one of my pals told me that a confabulating, sociopathic, sexual pervert would someday become President, I would have socked him in the nose.

Childhood is brief. You only get one shot at raising them right. Doing it incorrectly has consequences not just for the individual, but for society at-large. Forget Ukraine, open borders, and the rest of the folly for a minute. The real key to national security is an educated, responsible citizenry. Let that go, and society will spiral ever downward. The DC crowd doesn't seem to care.

I grew up in a tough ethnic neighborhood. When a kid acted like a jackass, as I routinely did, he was a legal target for cops, nuns, priests, rabbis, teachers, parents, and old-country Sicilian dads who threatened to kick your a** and meant it. A kid built "self-esteem" by staying out of trouble, playing his heart out in sports, studying in school, and keeping his big fat mouth shut.

He’s saying that because that is what his experience has shown. The difference between then and now is that there are a few “superpowers” that would likely use that opportunity for conquest and I don’t believe the US could survive, divided into smaller separate republics, and I hope that those of political and social influence understand that as well.
Plus the USA does not have a recent history of invading and subjugating other establish adjoining countries, especially ones that have a quite different culture and languages. The Warsaw pact countries and those that the Soviets absorbed were mostly "annexed" by force. Europe has a different makeup and culture, with a LOT of wars and shifting of borders.

The older I get the more I dislike Democracy.

I think those words have been repeated a lot over the years.
The Founding Fathers clearly agreed with you. Once the mob gains control, as the Democrats now intend, the elite can herd them like a flock of domestic animals. The Biden/Obama/Clinton cabal is following in the footsteps of past tyrants.
