Donald Trump has created a crisis in this country that didn’t exist until after he had stolen the 2016 election.
Don’t tell us that we need to get rid of Obamacare-because it works in those states which implement it.
Don’t tell us that we can’t afford to educate the next generation of engineers, because we can’t afford not to have engineers.
Don’t tell us we can afford tax cuts when our levees are breaking and our streets are in disrepair.
This is not the behavior of a superpower.
The last Republican who had half of a clue on this was Gerald Ford, who was willing to invest in our infrastructure and our education system. The best “Republican” was Dwight D. Eisenhower, as he spent trillions of dollars (in today’s currency) on our infrastructure and our education system.
Why? It was a matter of national security after the Russians beat us into space in 1957.
And neither one of these men advocated the stupid idea of school vouchers. Both Eisenhower and Ford strongly believed in the American system of public education-which was once the best education system in the world. What changed it all?
How do I know?
First, look at any Algebra book from the 1960’s and you’ll soon realize that the fucking book makes sense. You won’t need a tutor when using an Algebra textbook that the engineers who put Armstrong and Aldrin on the moon used back when they were in high school.
They are so easy to understand that even you could score an A on an Algebra quiz.
Second, we didn’t have overcrowding in the classrooms, which really began in the early 1980s.
Third, everyone could read a sentence and tell you what it was about.
One can’t always blame the teachers because they also have to be surrogate parents during the 50 minutes in which the students are there. Why? Because you sons of bitches who fucked in the back of your Toyotas fifteen fucking years ago don’t pay any attention to your children and their problems.
Watch The Breakfast Club, because you fuckers are just as bad as your parents.
