Do you remember back when Bush deified the uneducated? So look what happened to them: they got dropped almost out of society, and then we get angry because they have to be on food stamps. Where is our respect for such people that we would allow this to happen to them. They are unable to think clearly, are for the most part emotionally immature, and seem to follow the loudest voice.
How did this happen?
We made it very easy for them to be uneducated, didn’t we? While I’m a firm believer that a practical high school education is perfect for many, many people to get a good job and work in a good economy, because these are the people in my past experience, who have their feet on the ground, not the college students who have been deliberately trained not to think for themselves, but to go to another special authority to find out what they think, believing they will know all the answers, which unless they think for themselves they simply do not. They only know what the have been told/taught they need to know to get a good job. They know nothing of the truth, so it’s easy to cop out, especially because they are living a very good life, the only one they know.
These people, so many with PhDs. have been trained NOT TO THINK, or not to think OUTSIDE THE BOX. So now we have both sides of the coin totally helpless, and without any understanding that we are in a battle about personal sovereignty. Neither group can understand it — only us, it seems, who for our own sanity live ostracized lives, because we have trouble being around these sleepy, often deep-in-ego sheeple. The stories I could tell, but that is for another time.
Also, allow me to add that too many of the people who don’t belong in a place of higher learning go on to college, which only prolongs their childhood and puts them into debt enslavement – and they often don’t even know quite how it happened to them. We have even made this possible – and, yes, I say we!
So what can we do about it. Sit on the sidelines, be do nothings as we are in many other situations?
It’s a free choice planet.
On Tuesday evening, after easily winning the state’s Republican caucus with 46% of the vote, Trump spoke at a rally at the South Point Hotel and Casino, and bragged — albeit bizarrely — about how diverse his base is.
“We won the Evangelicals,” Trump said. “We won with young. We won with old. We won with highly educated. We won with poorly educated,” he continued, “I love the poorly educated! They are the smartest people, the most loyal people.”
His closest competitor in the Nevada race, Marco Rubio, came in 22 points behind the former reality television star, with 24%, while Ted Cruz came in third with 21%.
Based on an algorithm called the Flesch-Kincaid readability test “that crunches word choice and sentence structure and spits out grade-level rankings,” the Boston Globe previously scored all candidates’ announcement speeches, and found Trump’s to be the lowest.
In comparison, Bernie Sanders speaks at a 10th grade level, while Cruz is at 8.9, and Rubio at 8.6.
An entrance poll conducted by CNN found that Trump had 57% support among those who had only a high school education or less, a whopping 37 points higher in this demographic than any other candidate.
“What the hell is caucus?” Trump asked at the rally. “Nobody even knows what it is. Just vote.”
These were not Trump’s only rather unpresidential moments of late. When a protester was being escorted from a Las Vegas event Monday night, Trump declared that he wanted to punch him in the face.
“There’s a guy, totally disruptive, throwing punches — we’re not allowed to punch back anymore,” Trump said, in another moment where the line between the film Idiocracy and reality became blurred. “I love the old days. You know what they used to do to guys like that when they were in a place like this? They’d be carried out in a stretcher.”
“I’d like to punch him in the face, I’ll tell ya,” he added.
