Quantum Spin

Well, due to some spammer having found this obscure blog, I have been forced to refuse Anonymous posts. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause for legitimate posters, but since I am unable to send feedback to the offending servers causing them to explode and burst into flames - well, I do what I can. Thank you to all my sincere commentators and may the spammers rot in digital agony.

Common Core

I ran across this Common Core screen shot and thought I'd share it;

This is from the answer key for a homework assignment from Common Core for 3rd grade grammar. Note the propagandist nature of the page.

But, that aside, take a look at Numbers 4, 5 and 6.

#4: "He makes sure the country's laws are fair."

No, he doesn't. If anyone, that would be the supreme Court's job.

#5: "Government officials' commands must be obeyed by all."

What?!? This is not Nazi Germany, Stalinist Russia, Communist China, or any other dictatorial nations. LAWS must be obeyed by all, not some command given by some government flunkie.

And, finally;

#6: "An individual's wants are less important than the nation's well-being."

Nothing like subverting third graders into accepting communism and socialism.

Does anyone wonder why this teaching method was pushed out under Obama?
