Suddenly all over Texas, po-dunk towns are making sanctuary cities for unborn fetuses. Satire you say? Nope unfortunately this is actually happening.
The whole thing is rather childish, these bumpkin towns don’t even have abortion clinics. So why are they doing something like this? They think doing this will in turn outlaw abortion and they’re right it is a possibility. What they’re doing is unconstitutional. They are saying they will protect a fetus from conception to birth so they are not persecuted by people who want them to have abortions. This whole ideology is completely ridiculous.
Ten Texas cities have effectively banned abortion and declared themselves sanctuary cities for the fetuses. Most of these towns have less than 6k people while Big Spring, Texas which the city council had voted for this atrocity has around 28k people.
There was a protest in Big Spring against this, that did not seem to matter the city council voted to indeed ban abortion within city limits. There are not abortion clinics within 200 miles of Big Spring, Texas. Now here is the problem that will arise from this. This will end up going to court, I have no doubt. These are infringements on Constitutional rights and if this goes all the way to the Supreme Court, Roe Vs. Wade could possibly be re-open. Big Spring has many women and men that would like to come forward and speak but unfortunately I know all too well living in West Texas if you go against these people you will more than likely lose your job too. You think that is against rights but our Governor made it OK for businesses to discriminate due to religious preferences.
The main issue I for-see if the Supreme Court gets a hold of this, is the judges themselves. We have a majority of Republicans and while that typically wouldn’t be bad. This time the President has them in his pocket. Judge Brett Kavanaugh is the main one Trump has in his pocket, he owes him one. Brett has also been pretty blunt on his feelings toward abortion and said he would vote against it while he was on the Supreme Court. Even though Trump has openly admitted to paying for abortions he claims to be against them now. He needs that evangelical vote, that is literally the only reason I can see any evangelical voting for Donnie.
There is a boner named Mark Dickson who started this whole thing. He is from East Texas, never married, no kids but want’s to impose his moral beliefs on women. He’s a snake salesman and needs to stay out of something that has nothing to do with him.
If anyone in Texas feels strongly on this issue and may be able to travel please show up at these town meetings. You could make the difference and keep our body as women free from this nonsense. You know it’s funny, Republicans claim to be for smaller government only when it applies to their needs. They clearly have no problem sticking their nose up my vagina and into my uterus.
Asshole of the day is Rush Limbaugh, who the fuck thought it was a great idea to give him the Medal of Freedom?
All of a sudden it seems everyone is involved in a sexual harassment/assault scandal. Once one woman came forward in Hollywood several woman and men came forward with their own stories. The same can be said in the US Government although so far no men have come forward (it’s only a matter of time). Maybe this is the chance to open the eyes of the many woman who have been assaulted to come forward in any industry.
There have been some outlandish comments and articles on social media about these allegations. For the most part many don’t believe these woman some even said they provoked or asked for it. Many wonder why people wait so long to come forward after sexual assault. This is part of the reason for this. There are sick people out there that think woman ask for this behavior. No one wants to be assaulted by someone in power. There have been no cases where these people asked to be harassed by some rich asshole.
When it comes to Hollywood the main defense of these predators was that these actors and actresses asked for it. I also read some comments saying these woman slept with these guys to get in the movie and now regret it. Honestly any man that needs to use their power to get someone in bed is a scumbag all the way. The people that defend these sick bastards are just as pathetic.
The political aspect of these assault allegations are far worse. You have on one side of the fence Roy Moore, a former judge who was removed from the bench in 2003 running for Senate. He has been accused of sexually assaulting children aged 14-16. The man was even banned from a mall. His colleagues admitted to this behavior. Roy himself said he asked the parents of the 14-16 year old girls if he could date their children. Moore was 30 years old at the time. Republicans on social media have been so defensive of this scumbag it’s pretty disturbing.
On the other side of the fence you have Al Franken a Democrat accused of grabbing and forcibly kissing a none contributor to Sean Hannity’s Fox News show. The pair were on a USO tour and there is a picture that looks like it was taken out of content, you can judge for yourself. Franken’s response to the allegations, “I certainly don’t remember the rehearsal for the skit in the same way, but I send my sincerest apologies to Leeann.” The accuser in this case accepted the apology. Sexual harassment and assault are not limited to a certain political party, there are scum on both sides. In fact the two party system should be eradicated.
Sexual assault and harassment is serious and it happens probably more than anyone knows. It’s not limited to Hollywood and Washington, it happens all the time. The more woman that come forward the less its believed. This is why woman and men wait so long, some never come forward at all. Woman do not come forward to get their 15 minutes, that’s for sure. Who would want to be looked at in the way you look at a victim or a liar, because frankly it’s rarely believed.
The lack of morals and common decency in the United States is definitely lacking. There are many fake people out there claiming to be good Christians while showing us how extremely ungodly they really are. The leader of our country Donald Trump has been accused by 12 woman of sexual assault. There is audio tape of him talking about forcefully grabbing woman and kissing them not to mention their pussies. This is like living a nightmare where pussy grabbers are given the presidency and woman are scorned for speaking the truth.
So Donald Trump is President-Elect the electoral college has done their job. Some are protesting and very upset that Hillary Clinton won the popular vote, this has happened previously and the electoral college always wins. It’s a done deal and there is nothing anyone can do about this now. The protesting is fine as long as it’s kept civil. Burning flags, breaking windows, and looting is beyond ridiculous and needs to stop. These riots are not the opinion of the majority of the Democrat party, liberals, and anyone who voted for Hillary or against Trump. Regardless of what people say, it’s not liberals doing this it’s the uneducated animals that wanted an excuse to riot. The country is in turmoil over this election and it would be regardless of who won the Presidency. We were given 4 choices and technically only 2 if you know anything about politics. This in itself is not fair to the American people. Donald Trump has begun picking his cabinet and that should be the main topic of discussion everywhere.
Protesting peacefully I can get behind, although I do not protest because rarely does it solve anything and nothing good usually comes out of it. Many are not happy with the election results of Trump winning. On the other side, many were not happy with President Obama winning. So the people complaining that the liberals are babies, and crying have no cause since the exact same thing has happened by Conservatives. Donald Trump also had a lot to say on twitter that reminds me of child-like mentality. Protesting is an American right as long as it is done peacefully and without violence this shouldn’t be a problem with anyone. The rioting is uncalled for and just an excuse to act like animals all races are doing this and it needs to stop. There is no good that can come from that. Although, it has only been happening in Oregon of all places.
In the US there are only two parties that are prevalent is something that everyone should be fighting against. I may be considered a liberal, but I do not believe everything the liberal/democratic party believe in. We should be able to have multiple parties with a wide range of opinions in congress. As far as party lines go Republicans and Democrats may have different opinions in many cases, but they all get money from the same lobbyists. It’s pretty disgusting and until that stops nothing in this country will truly be fair. Of course collecting money from lobbyists does not mean the politician agree with what these lobbyists are saying, but 9 times out of 10 they do what they are asking. They want that money to continue to roll in. Donald Trump has said he wants to take money out of politics, but considering his cabinet picks thus far, nothing could be further from the truth.
According to many sources he has picked a white supremacist as his chief strategist Stephen Bannon. Exactly what does that say to the American people? Does he want to start or continue a race war? Lets face it during Donald Trumps campaign he said some pretty hateful things toward minorities, women, and Muslims. Still he won the election for President of the United States. It goes to show how the country feels about things. 48% of registered voters did not vote! It makes sense since many didn’t like either of the two running, but this is what you get when you don’t vote. A non vote shows you do not care who is running the country. Now I don’t like Hillary Clinton either, but I voted for her for the simple fact I was terrified Donald Trump would win. My vote in general doesn’t count for much since I live in Texas which is a big Republican state. Either way my conscious wouldn’t allow me not to vote. Many should have felt the same way. The election was not just about the Presidency it was also about some congressional seats. The Republicans have all of the branches of government as soon as Trump picks a Supreme Court Justice. This is unacceptable! Please get out and vote during the next election. If not for yourself for future generations.
If I was a Trump supporter I would be livid. It has been a week since the election and already he has doubled down on what he claims he was going to do. He said that he was going to get rid of the Affordable Care Act (Obama Care) yet he has already said he was going to adjust it. Donald Trump had some big talk against the establishment, yet his choices of his cabinet thus far have been mainly establishment picks. This is just the beginning, Republicans may hold all branches of government but they surely wont let him do most of the things he claimed he would get done. They will not like the term limits and will surely not let that pass. After all these career politicians are mainly Republicans.
Donald Trump will be our President for the next four years. I am hoping for the best, but expecting the worst. Many things will be changing you can bet on that. Many have claimed the last time Republicans controlled congress and the Presidency was 1928, this is completely false. The last time George W Bush was in office and everyone knows just how well that went. Expect another financial crisis, that you can bet on. D0nald Trump wants to lower taxes for everyone, but has yet to talk about any cuts. This will crash our economy. Say what you will about President Obama, but since he was handed the Presidency he has fixed so many things the Republicans screwed up. If we learned anything from Reagan, trickle down economics just does not work. I rarely pray, but today and for the next four years I will be praying for our country and the future of my children.
If you want change in this country voting for someone like Donald Trump will not be the way to do it. Voting is only half of it, you have the right to speak or write to your congressman. If you don’t believe in something the only thing we as Americans can do is stand together. The violence and racial tension in this country is only going to get worse. Everything seems to be getting worse. If you watch or read the news you see it. Monsters killing their children, people killing police men and women, the police killing citizens, rapists getting 2 years in jail, the list goes on. It’s sad and horrifying how violence seems to be a normal thing in the United States. We can do something about it, but only if we stand together. Republicans, Democrats, Christians, Muslims, Blacks, Whites, Hispanics, Asians, Gays, Transvestites, Pro Choice, Pro Life, everyone can stand together. We as Americans choose to separate ourselves based on our beliefs. I’m quite sure everyone thinks killing and violence is wrong. Peace is what is needed in this country. As far as I’m concerned voting for Donald Trump was against everything we as Americans stand for (or are supposed to stand for). It’s heartbreaking. If something isn’t done now, this will only get worse.
This is a sad day in US history. Donald Trump is the President-Elect of the United States. Something that people joked about two years ago has become a reality today. Many Americans are celebrating, but more are upset. Voting is very important not only to our country as a whole but to yourself as individuals. Several people voted third party and in turn gave Donald Trump your vote.
It was not the easiest thing to watch in fact I just turned off the television and midnight, I couldn’t take the loss. I woke up at 3am checked the polls and my worst fear came true at that moment. From the very beginning, everyone thought it was laughable that Trump could make it as far as he did. The memes and rhetoric were mere jokes this joke has now become a reality.
Most did not want to see either of the main candidates as their commander and chief. I did not either, what I did going to the voting booth was take the lesser of two evils. As past history dictates voting 3rd party gives the vote away. I did not want to see that happening. While Hillary Clinton has many flaws Donald Trump has far more. If you voted 3rd party your vote was essentially for Donald Trump so do not blame anyone but yourself. Others will argue that it’s the DNC’s fault for not letting Bernie Sanders run. That is partly true, but you had a choice picking 3rd party clearly did not help anyone other than Trump.
If you chose not to vote at all because neither candidate appealed to you, I hope you’re happy with the outcome. This is beyond comprehension. Just how many people actually listened to this monster speak before casting a vote for him? The hate filled rhetoric spewing from his mouth actually appealed to you? I just can’t fathom the thinking and would love to understand it.
I taught my children to look beyond skin color, sex, and religious beliefs. This goes to show that not everyone parents the same way. My girls were just as disgusted as I was upon hearing the news and the oldest is 11. They understand how elections work and they watched debates they know what has been said. I was even asked if their friends would have to go back to Mexico because he became President. It’s hard being a parent in this day and age. It’s even tougher to watch the world crumbling around you. So much evil and hate in the world, now it’s at our doorstep. The bigots and racists are not hiding any longer they are right there on social media, on the news, in our public view for all to see. They are not ashamed. I did not know that Marty McFly came by with his time machine and brought us all back in time.
Many of my own family and friends either supported or voted for Donald Trump. I was surprised but I was not shocked in the way I should have been. I even tried to debate it out with them, but they weren’t hearing it. My own spouse, while he didn’t vote and didn’t like either candidate preferred Trump. That has to do with his change in thinking upon moving to this shit hole most call Texas. Disturbed by the news by Midnight I was going to sleep. He woke up at around this time and I told him that Donald Trump is going to be President. His response was “Get out of here”. He thought the election was fixed to get Hillary Clinton elected honestly, I thought the same thing. Although his comments infuriated me after. He thinks he is a comedian and said “Great, now pussy grabbing will be legal!” He even decided to buy a “Trump Triumphs” newspaper and put it right where I would see it as I first woke up. Needless to say, he’s sleeping on the couch tonight.
So Trump won as if that is not bad enough the Republicans have majority house and the senate. Again if you didn’t vote I would love to wring your damn neck right now. This election was important. All I can say is pray for America. I am not a religious person by any stretch of the imagination, but I will be praying. This is not the United States I know and love, I don’t know what this is. Congratulations to Trump supporters, you did it. You showed the world just how dumb we have become. Electrolytes it’s what plants crave is now a reality.
Thankfully this election is almost over. It has been hell from the media to social network regarding this circus. Personally, I think it lasts far too long. From E-mails to pussy grabbing it has been highly entertaining, that I can tell you. There are more than two candidates running, but you wouldn’t know that if you only watched Television and social media. This is the main reason 3rd party candidates do not stand a chance. It’s unfortunate, but it’s the truth. They refuse to even let the other candidates debate which does not seem right.
Social media has been absolutely hateful regarding this election. Family and friends that disagree start an all out brawl being keyboard ninjas. As humorous and entertaining as that may be it’s also quite sad. Arguing with someone who doesn’t support your opinion is like talking to a wall. Not only that but friendships and relationships have ended over the difference of opinion. The false memes, pictures, and posts were numerous. I have yet to see many accurate memes out there, but some of these were just outright wrong. My favorite memes were about our current President. He has nothing to do with this election, he may support Hillary Clinton, but he’s also a democrat so that makes perfect sense. President Obama is laughing his ass off out of the Oval Office and who can blame him? All the good he has done for the United States and the problems he has fixed. People still find a way to bitch about him and even lie.The sad part is majority, of the time they don’t know what they are talking about and they believe any meme they see. Sometimes it’s because of Fox News. If you accurately look you will find that he has done more for this country than many Presidents. The most in my lifetime in fact.
The information that has come out since the election began is quite amusing. Anything about Hillary Clinton was already common knowledge. From the E-mails to Benghazi, she was pretty open about everything. The only thing that came out was wikileaks, which has been confirmed not to be a completely reputable site, having links to Russia, Trump, and the creator of Wilkileaks Julian Assange does not have such a great past. In fact he is hiding in an embassy in Europe to avoid being extrodited to Australia where he will be on trial for rape. Fact check has said that Hillary Clintons campaign manager was hacked and some of the emails are true, but some have been altered. Which to me does not make this a reputable site at all. If you have to alter information, clearly you had nothing to begin with. Fact Checking WikiLeaks
There didn’t need to be any scandals coming out of Trumps campaign his mouth did the best job for him. Yet there were some either way. He likes to grab pussy apparently. He has had rape alligations brought up, one was disproved, but there are still several other law suits against him regarding forced sexual acts. If his mouth didn’t turn you off on him as President, nothing will. Most people made their choice on their candidate months ago. Nothing he has said has deterred many if any.
56% of Americans are tired of this election, it has made the United States the laughing stock of the world. The fact that we have two candidates the majority of Americans can not even fathom voting for really doesn’t make sense. If you didn’t vote in the primary this is your fault. If you did and your candidate didn’t get chosen, it just goes to show how our political system actually works. Although, I do vote so I do believe that voting counts. At least if you don’t vote you have no room to complain. The main thing that is needed is an overhaul on the political system. It needs to be started in congress. The Presidental election is important, but the Congressional election is far more important.The gridlock in congress is deplorable. The fact that they even allow fillibusters, is ridiculous. These men and woman of congress have more vacation time and get paid higher than majority of Americans and don’t even do their job. They should all be fired.
On the Election eve, I predict Hillary Clinton will win and Donald Trump will not conceed and will say the election is rigged. Nostradamus predicted the exact same thing. I believe him, he’s been right far more than any other prophet. This election is in his writing, it’s facinating and I recommend anyone to research the information.
No matter who wins I believe this county is in for a hell of a time coming soon. Whoever wins will be blamed for everything just like President Obama, but at least this next President will gain a better office than our great President did.
The most unforgivable American contribution to world culture has to be the televangelist (The cockroaches of society). While these devious creature’s normal habitat includes mansions, private islands, and Republican events, they can also be found in a mess of controversy and scandals. If you want to see the scum of the earth turn on a the Christian networks to catch a televangelist. Not only have many been caught in scandals they are insanely wealthy.
Joel Osteen is one of the most well-known of the hustlers. This man has no formal religious education, a college drop out, and had a fear of public speaking. Osteen’s father began the church that is highly publicized now prior to his death it was peanuts compared to the empire Joel grew. One critic called Osteen’s style of sermons cotton candy preaching. Which simply means no depth. Either way he preaches for money, not for his love of God. He does not take his salary any longer, but he doesn’t need his measly salary his books racked up way more than he actually claims his net worth is. Osteen’s books and merchandise racks in 55 million per year. Osteen, ” claims an individual should not feel guilt for possessing lots of material wealth. Instead, one needs to thank and praise God for the acquired wealth.” His estimated net worth is $40 million. Joel Osteen Net worth
Joyce Meyer, not to be outdone by Joel she has a respectable net worth of $25 million. Has been involved in a scandal. Back in 2009, Joyce’s bodyguard , Christopher Coleman was charged with strangling his wife and their two sons (9 and 10). Coleman was having an affair with a woman and was making 6 figures a year as the security chief to Joyce’s entourage. The ministry had a no-divorce policy, which meant if Coleman divorced his wife he would be fired from his job. The family of the slain mother filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Meyer Ministries. The woman Coleman was having an affair with traveled with the circus. The family alleged not only did Meyer know of the affair, but know their own policies, yet allowed it to go on. The case was dismissed by the judge. When asking Joyce about her greed (she has a $10 million dollar jet) she simply stated that she doesn’t have to apologize for being blessed. Celeb Net Worth
Janice and Paul Crouch, these two are real bottom feeders they are the co-founders of Trinity Network. Their own granddaughter sued them for $50 million dollars. Claiming she was fired after discovering illegal financial schemes’. Her lawsuit follows a previous suit by a former employee. The couple defrauded the ministry and paid for many different things such as 13 mansions, trips, private jets, a $100,000 trailer for Janice’s dogs. There are several extravagant things according to the lawsuit that the money was spent. This case was also dismissed. Apparently money does really buy freedom. Paul has passed on luckily, but the crazy pick haired lady is 78 and still kicking, Janice has a net worth of $50 million. Jan Crouch Net Worth
Benny Hinn is another swindler that pimps the name of God for his sick love of money. He preys on the weak to make his cash. Benny is not only a preacher but a faith healer as well. He basically tells people to give them their money and they’ll be debt free. He has said he has cured Cancer and other diseases. People actually buy the load of crap he is selling. He is the lowest of the low to prey on sick people. You are not a man of god, you are a man from hell. Evil in the worst sort of way. Hinn was a part of a scandal, as a married man had an affair for 4 years with another televangelist (Paula White). It eventually came out. Benny’s net worth is $40 million. Benny Hinn Net Worth
Pat Robinson, is a manipulative old bastard, he’s so old I would need to write a book on all the scandals and dirty dealings of this son-of-a-bitch. In the 70s and 80s, he was a faith healer. Robinson claimed he could cure AIDS at one time with his prayer. Robinson is currently on The 700 Club, a Conservative Christian television show. In 86′ in an interview with The New York Times, Robinson called non-Christians termites. Pat is a very controversial man, to say the least. The ignorant jerk is anti-Muslim, anti-Hindu, anti-Protestant, anti-Abortion, anti-gay, anti-feminism, and anti-liberal. The words he uses when spreading his hate are quite disturbing for an old-timer he sure is opinionated as hell. Pat’s net worth is said to be $100 million to 1.9 Bil. Pat Robertson’s Net Worth
Jerry Falwell was one of the biggest mouthed hypocrites before his death in 2007. Falwell was a strong supporter of keeping God in schools and had some choice words after the Supreme Court announcement of Church and State separate. Clearly, Jerry was not a fan of the Constitution. He flipped out over porn, children’s shows, and anything he could judge. Falwell took Hustler magazine to court and sued for $45 million in suffering after a satire article was published in the magazine implying an interview with Falwell where he describes having sex for the first time with his mother in an outhouse. The court awarded Jerry $200,000 instead. Larry Flint (Hustler Magazines’s CEO) appealed all the way to the Supreme Court and won in a unanimous decision. Freedom of Speech, still in the Constitution. When Jerry Falwell died he had a net worth of $10 million. Jerry Falwell Net Worth
Televangelists are the lowest form of scum on the planet. They lurk in the television and use their viewers money for their own selfish luxurious lifestyles. The Senate inquired many televangelists regarding their spending and they all avoided tax penalties. The slippery bastards got away with their scam. If you or a loved one have fallen into this please help or run. You don’t need to send someone money to be saved. If you’re a good person you don’t need someone telling you how to live or what to do. You don’t even need a church to pray certainly don’t need a television to do it. If it makes you feel better fine, but these people are not men and women of God.
When thinking of a movie star most think of someone like Marilyn Monroe, or someone beautiful and glamorous. This is not the case at all there are some fugly celebs out there, here they are in no particular order. Acting is not always about looks, but it helps. Keeps the popcorn down at the movie theater.
These celebrities are pretty damn fugly. Luckily, most do not need their looks. They have enough talent to be keep themselves ugly.
There are some very ignorant people in the world. Much more than some may know. Unless you are blind and very sheltered you know just how stupid people can be, maybe not the extent. Hopefully, the majority is not as senseless as some. If you have been paying attention to the Primary Election, you may have noticed Donald Trump has won 18 states, that is not a coincidence. People really are simple minded to think Trump would be a good choice for president. Trump is right about one thing, other countries are laughing at us, and it makes sense. Some gene pools should end, here are many examples of people that should be put out of their ignorance. Sterilization is key, info on where to do that below.
If you see any of these people or know anyone like that, please explain how sterilization works. Idiocracy seems inevitable with each passing day. If you are one of these people, there are no words other than sterilize.
Sterilization for women: Planned Parenthood-Sterilization I’ll bet you thought it was all abortions (Don’t believe everything you hear).
Sterilization for men: Health Department- Sterilization You can have this done at any urologist.
Education in the US has gone to complete shit. From common core to no child left behind. Nothing has been working to better the US education system. There are many countries that spend far less per child for education and they are far more intelligent. Education keeps getting cut, yet we don’t spend the most per child we are #4 in the world market. Finland seems to be the place to get the highest level of education in the world. They even have free college.
We are the 7th richest nation in the world yet we lag behind everyone in education. We should be the best, we are not even the second best. How can a country like the United States have such horrible education stats and standards?
One reason is America’s repeated failure to invest in education. According to the US News, federal funding for education has fallen drastically. Congress has cut funding for K-12 education by nearly 20 percent since 2011—five times more than overall spending cuts.
Another reason for the lack of quality education is standardized testing. Many schools, across the country, give children so many tests. For example, my children take 4 standardized tests per year. The entire school year the children in Texas are being taught a test. In certain grades if you fail the test they hold you behind unless your teachers agree to pass you ahead.
In Texas standardized testing is big money the state has a contract for $468 million with Pearson Education to create and grade the STAAR test. According to the Washington Post, Pearson has solicited for test graders on Craigslist. Texas has the worst high school graduation rate of the entire country. No wonder, the kids get overloaded with pointless tests all year. They learn only what is on the test.
In a two-year testing study in city public schools across the nation, it is found that on average a student takes 112 mandatory standardized tests between Pre-K through 12th grade. It averages about 8 tests per year. The tests alone use 20-25 hours per year. Many of the standardized tests the children take are on the same subjects. The scores end up overlapping.
Statistics show that Finland is by far the best country to live in for a superior education. Not only does Finland spend less per student, than the US does, they also have an exceptional education system.
In Finland, it is extremely difficult to obtain a job in education, in order to be a teacher you must have your Masters Degree. They only hire the best of the best. The Principal runs the school and normally deals with the budget. The parents and educators decide how the school is run. They have the state, federal, as well as county programs that fund the schools. These programs are a perfect example of checks and balances each of the programs check each other to make sure the students being properly educated.
Finnish schools have no standardized testing, they have very little homework, the school hours are half that of the students in the US. The kids have 50-minute recess and free lunch.
“The [Finnish] curricula are very much focused on critical thinking and problem solving, project-based learning, and learning to learn,” she said. “There is a lot of collaboration in the classroom.” – Pasi Sahlberg, a Finnish education experience.
That is very different from the way the students are taught in the United States. There are very little debates in schools and no problem solving. Students learning tests is what is happening in America. That is what the country has come down to, let’s test the hell out of you and throw a bunch of bullshit you’ll never need down your throat and send you off in the world broken and half dead.
The bottom line is if Finland can do it, so can we. We are spending more than many and we should be number one in education. It disgusts me that the United States doesn’t make this a top priority. Instead, you hear getting rid of much-needed programs. The department of education is needed. First, it needs to follow Finlands path, standardized testing does not work! Then we need a whole overhaul on how to best spend the money in the budget and where it is needed most. In Finland they give additional money to poor areas, it obviously does the trick.
