We are handing them a broken country with no jobs and no means of competing on a global scale. While our schools were more interested in no child left behind, the worlds educational system left our children behind.


Sundancer I do agree with many things you've posted. That said...

The Industrial Revolution is what did away with jobs, it was inevitable. (The welfare nanny state we live in has helped people lose their employment and educational ambitions too.) But understand that the population of the country and the world has boomed since the early 1900's and progress, technology and greed has dictated that less people can now do more. Look at the auto makers. Modern efficiency. In agriculture, family farms gave way to factory farms. It's been the same in every industry. Eventually you're making crap up for people to do. "Barista" is one occupation that comes immediately to mind not that I don't appreciate a "capachino for my bung hole". That's what's going on now with Obama's "green jobs". If these green technologies showed enough promise they would already be developed by the private sector without our tax dollars. Even if all these green technologies are as advertised does anybody really think they will employ millions? That's ludicrous. Yes jobs left for Mexico, Ireland, India and the like and now they're drying up there too. I agree that allowing those jobs to leave was wrong. But there's still too many people and too little that needs doing! We just happened to be alive to see the bubble of prosperity break. Lucky us!

And as for higher education to do what? Work for Wall Street, law firms, big pharma, be a doctor, a chemist, an IT specialist? Yeah we don't have enough of those folks unemployed. Well maybe a few more doctors but who will want to go to medical school only to wind up working for the government for a pittance of what your talents are worth? The hot major now is criminal justice. Every other person in the future will be a cop to police the other unemployed half. Now if you believe a rocket scientist will very quickly get everybody off this planet, then let's goooooo education! If not, we already have the best and brightest unemployed people on the globe. USA! USA! USA! Would you like fries with that?

Best, and brightest??? I hate to be the bearer of bad news. I have lived outside of the States for the last 5 years; in various countries.

Overall many other nations are more advanced in regards to the future for their children. The US was once the best, and brightest, but now only represent the largest amount of Fat, and Ignorant.

The numerous countries I've experienced will dominate over a future world order where unfortunately the US will play the 3rd world role. Not only Europe, Asia, and Latin America are striving forward. The children KNOW English before the age of 10, and even in what we consider 3rd world sh*t h*les they are learning US History.....?

Why US History? They are learning our thought process. Why we do what we do.

What do we learn in the States? How to be ignorant, and obnoxious.

Torny,

"The numerous countries I've experienced". Which of those countries isn't in part a "sh*t h*le"? If there were such a hole deprived paradise you'd still be there. Where do those advanced foreign children end up? Here and unemployed. That's why they study us. Tragic. Why study English? To be able to cater to "ignorant and obnoxious" Americans? To live here in the third world you predict? "They are learning our thought process. Why we do what we do." And why is that? Because we do it best!



"For 'tis the sport to have the enginer hoist with his owne petar." - Hamlet, William Shakespeare


"Latin America are striving forward" Who are you kidding? Latin America still has to look up to see down. Don't worry though, you very shortly wont have to move to live in a "Banana Republic". Welcome home!

These educated foreigners you praise want to be here and out of those SH's you mention. And their level of education does not and will not change the state of this nation. Yes, I know we need more multi-lingual violin prodigies. What educationally progressive nations are you talking about by the way? That'll be a fun discussion. Oh and you'll list them you will!

Now what about the jobs situation? You don't address that at all. You can't, there are no answers. Too many people, to little to do no matter the level of their education. Education gives you the tools to self-soothe in the unemployment office. Next!

I never thought about it like that, it's true - Now it's even makes me more angry!!!

They were learning English and some US history at young ages in Latin America but many countries and tourist areas are rethinking the USA thing and starting to teach their young ones Chinese. That's not a good sign for us, but I'm sure you already know that being traveled .

Another thing you probably know but not many Americans do, is that many areas in Mexico are in building booms with a fast growing middle class. We not going to see that on Fox news.

If you care as much about your children maybe the solution is to pay homage to what this place was before we came and adhere to what these "primatives" believed...the planet is but a mother that needs to be treated with respect...until then, let's plan on strife and hardship.

Well it appears the earth is beginning to demand some respect, as well she should.

Thanks for the link, I'll check it out.

What a beautiful post! If we had more patriots like you, we might make it through this mess.

Battleline

The thread is doing wonderful. We have some mature people with great thoughts and opinions, I didn't want to throw it off by arguing with Larry. Several people have given him links to homes that have been wrongly broken into by the police, who have terrorized the occupants and killed their pets. I'm not going to go there.

And no, I didn't mention the poison injections they are forcing on our children. Excellent point!!!

STARS FOR YOU ALL.

Thanks Sundancer. I hate to sound so negative, I'm optimistic at heart although it must be hard to tell from some of my posts. I do hope and work for the best for our country and the planet.
