The actual "literature" chosen barely qualifies as such. From a reduced, ideologically derived vocabulary to a limited set of stories to choose from, it's as if George Orwell's Newspeak has stepped into our schools.
And thus, a step away from universal liturgy into ideological reduced vocabulary.
Recently reopened Technocrat.net.
Where to begin? Denial of reading the classics. The elimination of poetry and Shakespeare. Replacement with texts designed to limit vocabulary and more importantly, limit thinking. The almost assured dropout rate of at least 34% as the kids too stupid to achieve common core drop out from frustration and the kids too smart for common core drop out from boredom.
It's likely great for the 68% of the kids in the middle of the bell curve, but universal literacy is not going to be accomplished under it anymore.
And 78% of the test with a ruler and marking column C.
Gates only supports the common core because it will create students stupid enough to buy Windows 9.
The problem being that Common Core is a step *away* from universal literacy.
I have insurance through my wife's union- which is a union of daycare owners. Was the only way to get insurance prior to this year.
My point is that obamacare didn't really fix anything at all- it raised costs, not lowered them.
This article explains the hidden urban thought completely and why rural thought is different.
In Oregon, there's actually a program to make "Double-Dipping" legal. Basically, if you can find a way through self employment to earn up to 25% of your unemployment check, you can. If you earn more than 25%, your check is reduced dollar for dollar to 125%, at which point it disappears (and presumably, at which point you're the equivalent of fully employed at about $1 over minimum wage anyway, and no longer need the check).
Is the day I'll sign up for my own insurance.
Right now, the market is so muddled I can't even tell from my non-functioning state website whether I qualify for subsidies or not, let alone be willing to put 1/6th of my paycheck towards health insurance that has such a huge deductible it will only pay if I get in a major accident.
The only sane use of a banking system I've ever seen. If Government is going to keep a monopoly on currency, the least we can do is use usury to reduce taxation.
Won't do a lick of good, I'm on Bonneville Power.
I mean that he's being judged by modern standards. By the standards of the Spaniards, Italians, and Carib of his time, everything he did was perfectly justified (for instance, long before the Spanish arrived, it was quite common to raise money for the family in the Carib culture to sell children into slavery- the Spanish just brought a new market).
So basically another way we could raise the money to defeat King Coal would be to use Exxon's taxes?
