Love this!

We are going to experience a long depression in this country and our people need to wake up and realize that we all need to adopt a simpler way of life.  Jobs are being outsourced and eliminated due to technology advances, lack of competitive resources and demographics that favors thrift and saving.

It is no longer prudent to borrow a bunch of money to get any degree and trust to have a paying career.  We need to accept that we will need to take care of each other and live humble simple lives off our little share of the Earth we can claim.

 

The second point after reading this is that children are capable of SO MUCH MORE than learning tests.  Introducing them to the community and challenging them to be a part would be very fruitful towards harvesting a more beautiful citizenry in thought, intellect and caring.

Excellent. I wish I had been exposed to Gatto while I was still in school. Perhaps understanding the cause behind the problems I perceived intuitively would have given me direction, a voice, and a reason to fight back - rather than simple frustration, rebellion, and listlessness. Most of my time in school was spent devising new ways to steal back my time from a patently corrupt and counterproductive system; the remainder that I successfully reclaimed was spent learning, in spite of the aims of the institution rather than assisted by them. I am proud of what I did accomplish; the little victories I claimed were precious to me, but the larger defeats still enrage me when I reflect on them. Like this author, I doubt I'll ever reclaim the 11 years of my life I lost to the mass indoctrination system, and in the 11 that have followed I feel I've barely lived up to the potential I may have had at their start but for this monstrosity.

       A spoiled brat can be a valedictorian of our school system she is vehemently against! She had regretted instructions she had followed well in order to graduate on top of her class. She hated the educational system that created her like an automaton in the world of robots. She had wished her teachers were free of their choices on what to teach, not ORDERED what to teach. 

What a screwed up thinking of a juvenile delinquent in school that just turned out 18 to graduate as valedictorian. Of course there must be ORDER on what to teach in school. An English school teacher who loves Karate is not free to teach martial art instead of English in an English class as a matter of free choice, which this graduate is trying to advocate. A left-leaning professor assigned [or in the words of anti-system juvenile delinquents “ordered”] by the school to teach religion who believes by radical reasoning that 911 is the fault of Americans, cannot teach his class of the right of Al Qaeda to blow us up to kingdom come and glorify Islam in the name of academic freedom. This and many more in this “strange” valedictory address indicate a sinister pen being used to slay the hated dragon called the United States of America.

Bakdude,

Once again, you just don't seem to get it. Every comment I read by you, you appear to miss the moral of the story.  Our education system is poor and the current state of the Union is a partial testament of this.  Our various large institutions such as the judiciary, congress, and the central bank are corrupt and breaking key components of our Consitution and you call the student who is telling the truth, "spoiled" because that is the best that you can obviously come up with. Please get off this site. Post somewhere else - try the progressive, socialist, communist and fascist sites.  Trust me you'll feel more at home there.

Skip Robinson … You really live up to your name! You always Skip the point of my comment and go direct to personal insult. This is only the best you can do – watch writers like me and engage them in personal insults as a favorite pastime. I must tell you to let you know that only bankrupt minds hide in bad-mouthing because they don’t know how to argue like the learned or the educated do.

You were sure "our education system is poor". I have no quarrel with that. That’s your opinion, not mine. I always respect others’ opinion. I am afraid I might even agree with you knowing now how this "poor educational system" reflects your behavior --- no different from this school spoiled brat that the "poor educational system" produced. The truth is, the best minds the world over were educated in the best universities of the United States – didn’t you ever know that? How long have you been out of touch?

But the point of my comment Skip that you again skipped can be found in my concluding statement, and let me point this out to you by quoting the line: "This and many more in this "strange" valedictory address indicate a sinister pen being used to slay the hated dragon called the United States of America." Is this too deep for you? This should be the point your freaking mind should focus on and argue against, if you are able to or if you have something to give out coming from above your shoulder where your threatening brain muscle bulges, which is quite a space or quite a distance away from the cerebrum -- if you have one like I have.

But themy concluding statement, and let me point this out to you by quoting the line: "This and many more in this "strange" valedictory address indicate a sinister pen being used to slay the hated dragon called the United States of America."

The premise you miserably missed is that I find it rather odd – extraordinarily weird -- for a student to follow the system of school instructions brilliantly and made her graduate on top of her class as valedictorian, when she confessed she in fact was against it, or hated it deep down the marrow of her bones! That’s not normal or natural thinking of a lucid or coherent mind of a student that graduated valedictorian – it is clearly confused or messed up if not sick, which is common to spoiled brats or rebellious juvenile delinquents in most liberal, undisciplined American homes. If you are not strangely fascinated by this oddity or abnormality, I am. But then I am not you, or you can never be like me even if you transmute or evolve in a million years into something better than what you are now. I don’t expect that metamorphoses or transmutation to occur, not even in the lifetime of dinosaurs that vanished from this planet.

Knowing what you can do and what I can do, or knowing how limited you are and how unlimited I am for our millions of readers to learn from this forum, do you still think you deserve to be here more than I do? C’mon, let’s make some sense out of what you lack or obviously don’t have upstairs. Seek your level or look for your company -- the bad and the ugly -- in some other websites that can accommodate your kind. Trust me. You cannot remain a sore eye in this forum forever! Your presence is very bad for business.
