Common Core is a political indoctrination scheme. Period.

Common Core was not developed in public with public input. It was developed behind closed doors, and people like Bill Gates are making billions off of it. If Common Core is so great, why did all the developers have to sign non-disclosure agreements? Does a non-disclosure agreement have any place at all in public education? Watch this video on Common Core titled "Building the Machine" for documentation http://www.commoncoremovie.com/

Common Core supporters will tell you that our education system is falling behind the rest of the world. What they won't tell you is that the lowest achievers (you know who they are) are dragging down the aggregate scores. The unionized education bureaucracy (AKA teachers) are collectivists. They don't look upon students as individuals. They look upon them as herds of cattle. Fact is, a Japanese kid in an American school does better than a Japanese kid in a school in Japan. Same thing for any ethnic group you can name, except for a particular ethnic group that cannot be named. Since that ethnic group has an average IQ of 85, it is impossible to raise their scores. In the name of "equality" however, it is possible to cripple the high-achievers and drag their scores down. It's not fair that some people are more successful than others, you see.

The US Chamber of Crony Fascists is hell-bent on legalizing 30 million illegals so they can have cheap labor. Screw the rest of the country.
Has DeBlasio (or whatever name he is using these days) sold Central Park's horse stables to that crony-fascist political benefactor of his yet?
In a rational world, health insurance would be relatively inexpensive for young people because they are far less likely to require expensive medical treatment. In Ubamaworld, every peasant must be wrung for every penny the feral government can squeeze out of them.
As long as "freedom FROM religion" is being shoved down our throats, I'd like to be free of the religious beliefs of the nanny state.
