Why don't you just leave America? Your kind really isn't wanted here.
You sound just like a member of the 1930's Nazi Party.

A lot of people took their advice and did, in fact, leave.

Ecuador looks very attractive. So does Australia.

But I've decided to stay and fight to get my country back from primates like you.

Your Magic Negro shared Roast Dog with the Muslim Brotherhood inside the White House. He bowed to Arab Muslims. He went on an Apology Tour throughout the Middle East and was laughed at as a result.

The dumbing down of America ...
Test Scores have been lowered on: SATs, Police and Fire Department, and now Military.
If the scores were lowered to fill a shortage, as your post states, that's unfortunate and could prove detrimental.
However, I know the SATs, Police and Fire Department Test Scores/Standards were lowered to accommodate minorities < some being Women >, and I don't agree with it.
Can't pull a body out of a burning building if you have to pull a female fire fighter to safety because she can't pull her own body weight, let alone anothers'.
Same with The Military and The Police Force. Carry/Pull your OWN weight first.
And lowering IQ Test Scores for anybody's accommodation ... If one can't pass the Tests, they don't get the job. Period.
<quoted text>
I have no problem with lowering strength and fitness tests for women and minorities. These people have other valuable traits that can outweighs their physical limitations but, I agree, lowering IQ standards should never be viewed as an option.

One day, when I was a freshman in high school, I saw a kid from my class walking home from school. His name was Kyle. It looked like he was carrying all of his books. I thought to myself,“Why would anyone bring home all his books on Friday? He must really be a nerd.”
I had quite a weekend planned (parties and a football game with my friends tomorrow afternoon), so I shrugged my shoulders and went on. As I was walking, I saw a bunch of kids running toward him. They ran at him, knocking all his books out of his arms and tripping him so he landed in the dirt. His glasses went flying, and I saw them land in the grass about ten feet from him. He looked up, and I saw this terrible sadness in his eyes....
I stopped him and said,“Boy, you are gonna really build some serious muscles with this pile of books every day!” He just laughed and handed me half the books.
Over the next four years, Kyle and I became best friends. When we were seniors, we began to think about college. Kyle decided on Georgetown, and I was going to Duke. I knew that we would always be friends, that the miles would never be a problem. He was going to be a doctor, and I was going for business on a football scholarship.
Kyle was valedictorian of our class. I teased him all the time about being a nerd. He had to prepare a speech for graduation. I was so glad it wasn’t me having to get up there and speak.
On graduation day, I saw Kyle. He looked great. He was one of those guys that really found himself during high school. He filled out and actually looked good in glasses. He had more dates than me and all the girls loved him! Boy, sometimes I was jealous. Today was one of those days. I could see that he was nervous about his speech, so I smacked him on the back and said,“Hey, big guy, you’ll be great!” He looked at me with one of those looks (the really grateful one) and smile.“Thanks,” he said.
As he started his speech, he cleared his throat, and began.“Graduation is a time to thank those who helped you make it through those tough years. Your parents, you teachers, your siblings, maybe a coach—but most your friends. I am here to tell all of you that being a friend to someone is the best gift you can give them. I am going to tell you a story.” I just looked at my friend in disbelief as he told the story of the first day we met He had planned to kill himself over the weekend. He talked of how he had cleaned out his locker so his Mom wouldn’t have to do it later and was carrying his stuff home. He looked hard at me and gave me a little smile.“Thankfully, I was saved. My friend saved me from doing the unspeakable.”
I heard the gasp go through the crowd as this handsome, popular boy told us all about his weakest moment. I saw his Mom and Dad looking at me and smiling that same grateful smile. Not until that moment did I realize its depth.
Never underestimate the power of your actions. With one small gesture, you can change a person’s life.
Here's what Snopes has to say about your Parable: Other differences include:

"Bill's" books are not knocked out of his arms by a gang of bullies; he trips all on his own, with the story heavily implying no one other than "Mark" is around to see this.

"Mark" invites "Bill" in for a Coke, and they do spend the rest of the afternoon together, but not the rest of the weekend (as in the Internet version), nor does "Mark" work "Bill" into his circle of friends.

The boys don't become best friends in this tale. They have sporadic contact with one another throughout their school lives, but they are never more than distantly friendly.

The Internet version clearly exaggerates each of the story's main points: A boy who trips over his own feet becomes a lad beset by bullies...Why don't you indicate it was not you who sent to Duke, Dummy? Bwahahahahahahahahahahahaha

I actually don't need my firepeople to carry anybody out of a burning building, I need my firepeople to put out fires. It's kind of like being a Navy SEAL. I don't care if they can jump out of an airplane in a HALO maneuver. I just need them to get drunk and physically abuse young women in Newport News and San Diego. Sheesh!

It would be hard to lower IQ standards any lower than they are. The bulk of our nuclear launch forces cheat regularly on their readiness tests, ALL OF THEM. Do you actually believe that the same ethos does not pollute the rest of the force? These are the lowest possible denominator of human being until we start farming it out to the chinese. They are ALL cheats and liars... why do you suppose so many of them come from the south - not to mention, Guam...

SFGate - Skydiver, pilot treated after midair accident: http://tinyurl.com/oocz2vd

I have two observations to make. First, the article says the collision took place about 75' midair. The video shows more like maybe 25'.

2nd-ly, the names. The pilot-in-training is an 87-year-old whose last name is Trembley?
The man sky-diving is 49-year-old John Frost. Where else would Jack Frost go skydiving but in Florida, right?

So here we are inside of the Retirement State with a 49-year-old Jack Frost colliding mid-air with a Trembley 87-year-old.

I'm waiting next for Jack to get hit by a Hot Air Balloon while climbing the Beanstalk. The pilot will be someone up in age.

Nice one-point landing.
Yeah

What about the fact that you haven't got the authority to tell a dog to sit? The hierarchy worship is a big part of republican culture, I grant you. Who's going to passively listen to YOUR son or daughter telling them what to do unless you promise to shoot them if they don't? That's why Mormons make such good soldiers and spies, you can pretty much tell them to do anything and they'll be out there with bells on the next day doing it.
