ALso, you ar acting like you are purposely getting low grades, because its 'pointless'. That doesn't make the least bit of sense. If its so pointless, struggling against it is even more pointless.

No where is this clearer than when it comes to "learning" history. You would be SHOCKED to learn all the falsehoods and lies that are taught regarding American History.
It is quite obvious that American History classes are designed to attempt to give the students a sense of national pride. They fabricate stories, they omit important facts, and mold the myths they spew around what they believe will produce Patriotic Americans.
Pilgrims seeking religious freedom were the first to settle in the new world? nope...
We were friendly to the Native inhabitants from the get go, resulting in the First thanksgiving? Nope
Indians were savages, living primitive lifestyles in small clans? Nope,
Columbus Discovered America, not even close
Washington was the 1st president of the United States... nope...
The U.S. was a democratic country after we won the revolutionary war? Nope...
it goes on and on and on
I guess I'm going to have to start that thread I thought about where I "debunk" all the old school myths, lies and herofication of our History...
