We can thank the union run schools for the illiteracy rate. Obama wants folks to be dumb, on welfare and on drugs. What other state of mind would accept what he has been doing and gets reelected on more of the same. Since families are replaced by sperm donors and incubators he need not worry that our students are being dumbed down daily. Despots are known for their diabolical minds. Obama is the quintessential diabolical despot.
