My mother and father were some of the smartest people I've ever met, dad graduated high school, my mom, 8th grade and that was all, had an amazing command of the English language, never made a grammatical error ever.

Today, ebonics gets you a degree.

I'd say maybe 20% of recent public high school graduates could pass this grade school test -- and those students learned whatever they learned at home.

But give a test on the "subjects" of Global Warming and Economic Justice, and you'll see nothing but A's.

No basic skills in science or mathematics.  No ability whatsoever to think any subject through for themselves from the bottom up.  Which means they have no capacity to rationally question anything; all they "know" are the conclusions that've been drummed into them. 
β€˜β€˜It is not the function of our government to keep the citizen from falling into error; it is the function of the citizen to keep the government from falling into error.’’

They don't join unions, don't argue assignments, don't sleep on the job, are not late for work or take off a day because they feel like it. You don't have to cut their hours to afford Obamacare, and best of all, don't waste time discussing "economic justice".
