Love where you live!
This is November 4th. This is a very important day. Question of the day: "What important event happens today?"
Now, for you and I, this may appear to be a rather ridiculous question. For you and I this question would never occur, in any form or fashion. If asked this question during a "Man on the street" interview we would no doubt look at the interviewer as though they were stupid. I know you have watched countless "Man on the street" interviews on the television and have shaken your head at the unbelievable stupidity of the responses but then have merely dismissed the segment. But consider those interviews now, on November 4th, a very important day.
I just watched an interview from the campus of Texas Tech. Seemingly smart students at a technical university. Oh, and this same type of interview can be conducted on any college, university, high school campus, any street corner, any neighborhood in the nation and with exactly the same results. And each time the viewer will shake their head and ask themselves, "What kind of education have these kids, these people received?????". The young lady asking students questions inquired first: "Who won the Civil War?" These were Juniors and Seniors in the university now. A dozen were asked and NO ONE KNEW! They were asked the name of the Vice President - the sound of crickets as we watched dumb faces. "From whom did we win our independence?". "Uh .......". Followed by a series of what movie and/or tv personality was married to whom. Every answer was proudly and quickly and correctly spewed out. Such in the condition of American education yesterday, today and tomorrow and tomorrow. Oh, and one final note: EACH PERSON INTERVIEWED WAS OLD ENOUGH TO VOTE AND CERTAINLY WILL!!!! Does that tell you anything regarding the condition of education in our nation today? California, with all the money "spent" to constantly improve and update, is 45th in the nation and one could well expect these types of responses. Texas, however, is 12th and should be far brighter. NOPE! Stupid is stupid wherever you go. And, I note, this not a racial thing, a gender thing. It is a total failure of education and a total corruption of a so called "educational system", from the federal level to pre-primary grades and it sits squarely upon the shoulders of TEACHERS and their beloved UNIONS!
So, today is November 4th, a special day. Despite all the last minute and desperate lies and slanderous name calling by Democrats seeing their defeat looming, today is special for the nation, the states, the communities for us and for YOU. Despite all the bombastic promises (of course none to be kept), you have made up your mind months ago for whom to vote. All the hundreds of millions of dollars spent really have been a total waste of money, the aired television spots a total waste of time. You Know. Whether Democrat or Republican, Liberal or Conservative, patriot or radical, you know. And, sadly, those stupid amoungst us, and every one except the stupid amoungst us know who they are, will also vote. Despite the blatant and totally disregarded efforts to cheat, lie, rig votes, buy votes, bribe for votes, we will continue to try to maintain our Republic. We, my wife and I, will vote today with very little hope of any honest outcome, thanks in large part but the towering stupidity of citizens as well the corruption that is sapping the nation of hope. But we'll vote. And I, we, hope you will as well. But know for whom and for what you are voting and do not merely walk into that booth and make your decisions then based upon lies, based upon what you saw on television. Only informed voters can make a difference. Is that YOU?
