Ignorance about America's history affects all of our future.
It wasn't meant to be an insult. Neither does ignorance necessarily mean stupid.
But the numbers in that poll were quite alarming - how many Americans don't know basic information about their own country, its history or enough awareness about the present.
Learning Human and American History is like learning how to protect yourself from shooting your foot.

As a result of American Academia's intentional failure, younger Americans are shooting themselves in the foot daily.

Do you always have such a hard time letting something go?
However, that had nothing to do with responding to what I said about a president's homeland being the USA - not Kenya.

I wouldn't be offering explanations nor apologies for their ammunition.

5 Years After Stimulus, Obama Says It Worked
White House points to jobs saved and economic growth fostered in forthcoming report
The White House, of course, is not an objective source — Council of Economic Advisers chair Jason Furman, who oversaw the report, helped assemble the Recovery Act — but its estimates are in line with work by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office and a variety of private-sector analysts. Before Obama took office, it would have been a truism to assert that stimulus packages stimulate the economy: every 2008 presidential candidate proposed a stimulus, and Mitt Romney’s proposal was the most aggressive. In January 2009, House Republicans (including Paul Ryan) voted for a $715 billion stimulus bill that was almost as expansive as Obama’s. But even though the stimulus has been a partisan political football for the past five years, that truism still holds.
The report also estimates that the Recovery Act’s aid to victims of the Great Recession — in the form of expanded food stamps, earned-income tax credits, unemployment benefits and much more — directly prevented 5.3 million people from slipping below the poverty line. It also improved nearly 42,000 miles of roads, repaired over 2,700 bridges, funded 12,220 transit vehicles, improved more than 3,000 water projects and provided tax cuts to 160 million American workers.
My obsession with the stimulus has focused less on its short-term economic jolt than its long-term policy revolution: I wrote an article about it for TIME titled “How the Stimulus Is Changing America” and a book about it called The New New Deal. The Recovery Act jump-started clean energy in America, financing unprecedented investments in wind, solar, geothermal and other renewable sources of electricity. It advanced biofuels, electric vehicles and energy efficiency in every imaginable form. It helped fund the factories to build all that green stuff in the U.S., and research into the green technologies of tomorrow. It’s the reason U.S. wind production has increased 145% since 2008 and solar installations have increased more than 1,200%. The stimulus is also the reason the use of electronic medical records has more than doubled in doctors’ offices and almost quintupled in hospitals. It improved more than 110,000 miles of broadband infrastructure. It launched Race to the Top, the most ambitious national education reform in decades.
At a ceremony Thursday in the Mojave Desert, Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz dedicated the world’s largest solar plant, a billion-dollar stimulus project funded by the same loan program that financed the notorious Solyndra factory. It will be providing clean energy to 94,000 homes long after Solyndra has been forgotten. Unfortunately, the only long-term effect of the Recovery Act that’s gotten much attention has been its long-term effect on national deficits and debts. As the White House report makes clear, that effect is negligible. The overwhelming majority of the Recovery Act’s dollars have gone out the door; it’s no longer adding to the deficit. It did add about 0.1% to our 75-year debt projections, but allowing the economy to slip into a depression would have added a lot more debt.

Bill Ayers says he wrote Dreams for Barack. And frankly Davey-Bill Ayers personally told me that he wrote Dreams and then he went into detail how the second book was written by a political hack.
O'bama is a fraud from day one-he didn't have enough smarts to write his own book. As Billy Bob Clinton said: O'bama is nothing but a fairy tale, of course Bill would know what 'tale' is.
The Magic Negro also wrote the Dream Act; if his Thought Police catch anyone dreaming of personal freedom, they will be charged with a Hate Crime and be shot at sunrise.

and about that ego.....
William Ayers, Distinguished Professor of Education and Senior University Scholar at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC), and founder of both the Small Schools Workshop and the Center for Youth and Society, teaches courses in interpretive and qualitative research, urban school change, and teaching and the modern predicament. A graduate of the University of Michigan, the Bank Street College of Education, Bennington College, and Teachers College, Columbia University, Ayers has written extensively about social justice, democracy and education, the cultural contexts of schooling, and teaching as an essentially intellectual, ethical, and political enterprise. He is vice-president of the curriculum division of the American Educational Research Association, and a member of the executive committee of the UIC Faculty Senate.
Ayers’ articles have appeared in many journals including the Harvard Educational Review, the Journal of Teacher Education, Teachers College Record, Rethinking Schools, The Nation, Educational Leadership, the New York Times and the Cambridge Journal of Education.

Ayers’ articles have appeared in many journals......so the Left takes care of its own.

Try enlightening us instead, OK?

Karl Heinrich Marx was a German philosopher, economist, sociologist, historian, journalist, and revolutionary socialist.

NOTE: He was a *JOURNALIST* and was closely allied with academia.

He wrote for many newspapers both in Europe and in America. He wrote articles in the German Rheinische Zeitung. He wrote for the New York Daily Tribune and The New York Times.

To puff up Ayers as some sort of distinguished academician is like calling Jesse James a Western Philosopher with a six-gun. You are a walking joke, sonic. A sick one.
