Brad McQueen's knowledge of Common Core "is informed by my ten years of teaching in public schools, my five years working on state standardized tests, my participation in committees reviewing the Common Core/PARCC test and my 48 years as an American who is very concerned about implications for the fundamental transformation of our children's minds via the cult of Common core." The book was $5 at Amazon.
Or, how about "Obama Core" as a new title to help sell it ? I mean, Obama Care is so successful...
To best understand this discussion see THE CULT OF COMMON CORE, Obama's Final Solution for Your Child's Mind and Our Country's Exceptionalism by Brad McQueen. The author, a public school teacher and an insider in the creation explains what its true intentions are. This top-down, one-size-fits-all indoctrination program needs to b understood by parents before it is too late.
Of course it is a federal government program. It is foisted on the states with $$$ attached so the states accept it. Common Core is a one-size-fits-all system of indoctrination that distorts history to fit the statist goals of the regime. And they teach their revisionist history in cases for English! The testing companies make big bucks --and guess who controls the testing companies? The more that is being learned about this conspiracy the less people can defend it.
You've stated the other side of the coin but it does NOT refute Mr. Limbaugh's factual presentation. A girl just got suspended in a government school for saying "bless you" when a fellow student sneezed. Things like that are going on all over the country. Some schools omit "under god" from the pledge. Watch how Common Core works against Christianity.
This quote continues to prove that when his lips are moving, he's lying. From his vacation spot on Martha's Vineyard, Obama declared: "We broke the (Islamic State) siege of Mount Sinjar. We helped vulnerable people reach safety, and we helped save many innocent lives. Because of these efforts, we do not expect there to be an additional operation to evacuate people off the mountain, and it's unlikely that we're going to need to continue humanitarian airdrops on the mountain...." Meanwhile people there continue to die without let-up.
Congress' approval rating according to recent Wall Street Journal poll is14%.Then, how do incumbents almost always get reelected 95% of the time? It is the advantages of incumbency that are so great in money from lobbyists and in name recognition that is so difficult to overcome. Good people don't run when they have such little chance of prevailing. The other major factor, of course, is the ignorance (I don't know) and apathy (I don' care) of voters. The election reform that goes long way to improve our political system is costless: it is Term Limits on Congress. Go here and sign the petition www.termlimits.org

Paul Jacob is a hero of the term limit reform having helped in numerous campaigns as president of US Term Limits and in other capacities. We are fortunate to have his dedication to good government contribute to our individual freedom. Thanks, Paul.

Term limits are not as effective in California as in other states for a couple of reasons beyond the fact that the culture there is tilted to the statist left. It has a full time, highly overpaid legislature that attracts money-grubbers rather than civic-minded successful citizens offering public service. Still term limits can ameliorate some of the harm that career pols can inflict on a state over time. Tenure corrupts. www.termlimits.org

Actually we do not have term limits if you think elections can do the job. They can't because the advantages of incumbency are so great -they have name recognition, big bucks from lobbyists who don't want to lose their "honest" politicians (which they define as "once bought, stay bought")and the reluctance of good men to run against such odds. www.termlimits.org
