The fact of the matters that I will describe are the following; as long as the nation’s concentration remains on creating a slave labor force that is completely dependent on the billionaires for subsistence, the uneducated will eventually breed out the educated and then we will have nothing but a dumbed down mass of followers clamoring for jobs that pay very little with the idiot worker feeling fortunate just to be employed. Incredibly, the push for socialized medicine has made the effort to socialize education wither and die on the vine. The masses of sheeple who rely on the Government for subsistence are now celebrating the Obamacare achievements while students and potential students everywhere in the U.S continue to struggle to get the education that would keep the country on the cutting edge of science and technology.
I was fortunate enough to be able to attend a conference featuring Dr.Neil deGrasse Tyson and was, of course, astounded by the man’s brilliance; you cannot be in Dr. Tyson’s presence without feeling that you are in a room with one of the world’s most incredible minds. During this event, he described all of the wonders that science has created and discovered as well as all of the damage religion has wrought as well as the completely preventable damage we have caused the planet over the course of the last few hundred years. He also presented a slide that showed all of the countries that are leading in scientific research. These countries were blown up like balloons to illustrate their significance on the globe, with the U.S being a very prominent player. Fast forward ten years and the next slide shows the U.S very much a deflated insignificant player on the world scientific stage. This, he said, was due to the deliberate dismantling of our educational system by the very pieces of shit that WE elected to lead us!
Now he did not say that these fucking roaches were pieces of shit, that was me, but he did say that there seemed to be a concentrated effort to dumb down the American people, and when 50% of doctorate and post doctorate student bodies in the most prominent U.S universities are foreign born, then yes, this country DOES have a definite problem! Our students here in this country cannot seem to afford an education, and higher ed is not even PUSHED in this country as it should be. I tell my children that college IS NOT a choice but a requirement in our family, because to ignore it is to aspire toward poverty and mediocrity at best! We have one of the worst education systems in the modern world in one of the richest countries, yet no one is outraged!
The Left end of the spectrum is too busy trying to use fuzzy warm feelings to trick the public into thinking that their latte-swilling asses aren’t corporate shills as are their Republican counterparts, and the Right is too busy stirring up the few closed minded people left in that irrelevant party to go against those godless Liberals! These assholes work for the same billionaires and are destroying the country while peripheral issues continue to cloud the treachery that is being wrought by both parties right under our noses! People are so busy blaming each other’s political representatives to realize that once the smoke has settled, it will be too late to salvage the wreckage and take care of the important issues. Education needs to be at the front of the line, not medicine. If the Left was not in bed with Corporate America then Obamacare would be a single payer system, and I know that you need to start somewhere, but education will solve MOST of these other problems with the advancement and evolution of the human mind. Forsake education and we devolve into a third world irrelevant nation stepping back into superstitious belief instead of into reason. Religion was borne of ignorance and will reappear in force if education is ignored.
Personally, if it were up to me alone, I would scrap the disastrous welfare system and initiate a WORKfare system designed to repair the inequalities in under served areas and to educate the masses. Giving someone something to be proud of is one of the most incredible motivators that exists. Giving one a handout creates dependency and squalor, just look at any Section 8 housing complex to prove this fact. Spend taxes to get people independent and the economy will improve fostered by the opportunity that it would provide. Crime will decrease and diversity will flourish if careers and futures are established, but this is heresy to those in power who make millions off of the slaves that they are creating to continuously restock their underclass.
A small piece of personal history. I used to wade into dumpsters to collect cans and other scrap metal to sell when I was 11 years old. At 14 I entered the work force full time just to feed myself, obtaining whatever job that I could as my mother irresponsibly moved us around homeless from state to state. When I reached 18, I finally got off of the street from living behind a gas station while holding down a 60hr a week job busing tables. I went into the Army to get college money and ended up with my degree and 7 years of college under my belt by the time that I was 27. I have a very hard time with self serving whiners who are able but scamming the system claiming that they can’t seem to catch a break when I, with no support, actively chose to forsake crime and drugs so that I could pull myself out of the streets. I know that everyone has a story, but the answer to achievement is in a hand up, not a hand out, and this all begins with socialized education made available to even the poorest of citizens. Maybe some of the idiots that are out there trying to raise the minimum wage so that they can stay in poverty but raise a family would choose not to pursue this illogical and unreasonable position if they were given access to adequate educational programs and assistance checks weren’t handed out to those who just can’t abstain from creating children that they cannot feed.
Our focus needs to change folks, and those who do not want to work but are able, or who would not accept an education program designed to get them employed should be left without a safety net. There are plenty of people out there who want to get out of a bad situation, so lets provide the hand up with education and expectation as well as true equality for everyone who contributes to the villages’ well being. That is it for this post and I am out!
