It is no wonder this country ranks low in education compared to other countries in the world like Japan, etc. It is because we have such a diverse population. Like 12 million F@ckin illegal aliens who can't speak frigging english, inner city blacks who don't even know who the %$#@ their father is! We are going down hill so fast! We are repeating the collapse of the Roman Empire.
It gets worse.... I live in Vermont (no I am not gay or liberal). The Dems pushing a bill to get 17 year olds to vote in primaries. Vermont has a lot of colleges. The professors belong to the teachers union. They teach the montra that the Republicans are evil. There are thousands of college students and they can and do sway elections up here. How do you think @$$h0le Bernie Sanders, Pat Leahy, Peter Welsh, got elected? How about Howard Dean??? What a Joke.
Yep, you drop a baby here, you're in. Can't speak English? Gonna dumb down our classrooms? No problemo, the libs will pass you and bankrupt America to support you from cradle to grave as long as you promise to vote democrat when you turn 18.
Blame it on US sponsored wars, Media, Hollywood and TV. America exported particularly through all those media, a lifestyle that the rest of the world wanted to be a part of. Oh, also the jumbo jet era made it possible to bring on a daily basis several thousand new immigrants (legal or otherwise) from remote corners of the world. Oh well, such is life.
