dumb, dumber, dumbest
Americans are dumb. They are getting dumber. Soon, at this rate, Americans may be the dumbest people in the civilized world. Blame it on the educational system, the Millennial Generation, bad politics and bad parenting.
From globalresearch, Canada:
Out of 22 countries, the report from the Educational Testing Service found that Americans were dead last in tech proficiency. We were also dead last in numeracy (numbers/math) and only two countries performed worse than us when it came to literacy proficiency…
Half of American Millennials score below the minimum standard of literacy proficiency. Only two countries scored worse by that measure: Italy (60 percent) and Spain (59 percent). The results were even worse for numeracy, with almost two-thirds of American Millennials failing to meet the minimum standard for understanding and working with numbers. That placed U.S. Millennials dead last for numeracy among the study’s 22 developed countries.
A statistic from USA Today about the declining state of college education in America:
“After two years in college, 45% of students showed no significant gains in learning; after four years, 36% showed little change.”
Like I said: dumb, dumber, dumbest.
What's the point of going to college if you don't learn anything, are ill prepared for life after college and can't get a job if you do graduate?
Why is college so expensive if students don't learn anything (except maybe political correctness).
Why do parents allow their children to do and think whatever the kids want? Kids are kids, they don't know anything about real life. It's the parent's job to teach them values and maybe some discipline.
I used to say, "The older you get the stupider everyone else gets." Now, apparently EVERYBODY in America is getting stupider. And the main cause is liberalism. Yes, liberalism. Liberals love their "Fair and Equal" doctrine. Everything should be fair and everyone should be equal. Fair and equal? Life is not fair. And human nature can sometimes be nasty. It's called reality. Today, there is no reality. People don't deal with reality anymore, instead they ignore it or deny it even exists or try to change it into some fantasy - a liberal fantasy - a liberal fantasy that has failed miserably for the past 50 years. Oh, and by the way, everyone is NOT equal. Some people have more natural talent than others and some people work harder and smarter than others. And, today, instead of being praised for it, they are penalized for it and indoctrinated by liberals that this is unfair and unequal, and therefore a bad thing.
Dumb, dumber, dumbest. Welcome to the new America. After 240 years, we're now fast becoming a third-rate dumb country. And this is good, how?
And no, for the record, I am not an old white male Republican. I am an old white male Independent. And a dinosaur.
