Sit with your global warming tornados and floods and droughts and big carbon producing cars and your obese bodies all saying you don't need any education. No one cares.<quoted text>
Item - Global Warming is crap, pure and simple.
Item - Oil dependence will will wane when alternatives are mature, as in inexpensive. Every alternative is still in its infancy. Government cannot force this issue, technology and private investment will. When alternatives become viable, they will proliferate, but not until then.
Item - Our schools are failing to teach to begin with. A BA is worth less than a High School Diploma was 40 years ago, because the grads know less now than then. Schools spend too much time on FEELINGS, feel-good methodology, and PC garbage, and insufficient timer on facts and reality. All the Black Studies, Womens Studies, and Homo-fiction does no good if the student cannot read, write, or complete a multiplication table.
Item - Government "freebies" foster dependence. You get what you pay for, and government pays for idleness, poor education, and irresponsible reproduction.
Item - Government has usurped Parental roles. When the government goes behind the backs of Parents to teach sex ed, gender "tolerance", or provide abortions, in spite of parental responsibility and moral teachings, the government undermines the authority of Parents, which impressionable children catch onto quickly. Why should kids listen to Parents at all when the all-wise school system and government declares the Parents wrong?
The "elite" bureaucrats cannot replicate the accumulation of information and trillions of decisions that people make hourly. When people make poor decisions, it does not affect more than a close circle. When bureaucrats make poor decisions, it affects everyone. People correct mistakes. Government doubles down on 'em.
We all hear you. You don't care one thing about dealing with carbon emissions, you could care less about global warming, you could care less about competing with China and India in education, you all love being at and stupid. We hear you.
Enough already. You want to be third world. We all hear you, and the rest of the world hears you. You can't step up, you can't fight back, you cant cope, we all hear you.
