IT STARTED WITH LINCOLN AND THE CIVIL WAR He wanted to first win that war, reestablishing the Union, and then evict blacks from this nation to be sent back to Africa. Next, the Age of Robber Barons (1865 - 1900) resulted in wild enrichment for the few and thus the formation of worker unions followed by the Sherman Anti-Trust Act of 1890 which dismantled vertically integrated corporations of the Robber Barons starting with Rockefeller's Standard Oil. Then ushered in the Age of Progressiveness and Age of Finance (1900 and ongoing to the present) resulting in home-mortgaging that caused a collapse of the stock market in 1929 ushering in the Great Depression. Prior to this Alva Vanderbilt organized the women's movement seeking "the ballot"

This was followed by WW2 and then in 1965... the hippie movement. Survivors of such whose children are today's 'educators' resulted in the gross dumb-down of education standards from 1980 that is ongoing to this day.

Only calamity can result from the current status of K-12 education in this nation. A nation of dismal and dysfunctional dolts is being produced. They are duped dolts that flood to the democrat "party" as if it were still 1965.

If Democrats control the schools why does almost every school system still teach creationism? It's a fringe, unsubstantiated theory and yet it still gets taught.

Schools still teach creationism?

During the Los Angeles riots of 1992, Rodney King famously asked, “Can’t we all just get along?” The answer should be an easy and unequivocal “yes,” but it seems less and less likely these days.

King was speaking in term of race, but the same could be said of political ideology. Liberals, conservatives and every other point on the political spectrum used to co-exist fairly easily (with the exception of left-wing anarchists who don’t get along with anyone). But these days détente has given way to anger and open hostility.

Some, not all, people have become less civil to those...
