    What happens when 8 years of "fundamentally transforming the United States of America" is followed up by 3 1/2 years of "let's make America great again"?

    We will see the results of this soon enough ... but for now, stay safe, and stay focused.

    "let's make America great again" is a Comedy of Manners.

    Actually instead of the word make, it is spell.
    "let's spell America great again".

      Wouldn't that be something...but, alas, the left is in charge of educating our youth, as well, so let's not hold our breath...

        I'm trying to understand how it is that the left is "in charge of" educating our youth. Presumably, local school boards select school district superintendents, who then select principals, who then select teachers. I'm confused how that means "the left" is "in charge."

          You don't wish to take a stab at my initial question PP?
          There are no right or wrong answers. I am surprised the question brought up the subject of spelling, but whatever! Nothing makes much sense any longer, so...

          Do you know who Jason Zimba is?
          Would you say there are more left leaning institutions of higher learning or more conservative?
          Would you say Teachers/Professors tend to be more liberal or more conservative?

        What's wrong with the youth these days? I thought they were supposed to rebell!



        They have been taught to hate and rebell?
        ... and are obediently doing so?

        (This is the problem with blind obedience.) 

        I infiltrated one of the protest events at a park near me. I observed as the person with the megaphone had dull emotionless youths sit in groups of ten to write down each others' phone numbers and discuss amongst themselves. Pens and little spiral booklets had been distributed. Bottles of water and bandaids were abundantly provided.
        It reminded me of a business seminar.
        The people, mostly young, had all come of their free will because they saw the event advertised on the internet, but they were quite docile.

    Who is pushing 'climate change' and why has it taken the place of cursive and civics lessons? Why is sex ed and inventing a whole new host of names for but two sexes, more critical than say a study of the U.S. Constitution?

      Is there actual evidence that teaching cursive and civics were removed to teach climate change? And, in any case, how does that show that "the left" is "in charge of" education?

      "Why is sex ed and inventing a whole new host of names for but two sexes, more critical than say a study of the U.S. Constitution?"

      Who said that it is? If someone did make an actual policy statement to that effect, I'd like to see it. And if they did, hasn't  Ms. Betsy had a few years to address it?

      In any case, I'm still not seeing how "the left" is "in charge of" educating our youth. Can you connect the dots for me?

        Ms. Betsy hasn't been at her post any longer than President Trump has been at his, but what do you care?
        You will have to connect your own dots, my plate is full.

          No problem. You made the statement, which runs counter to my knowledge of how school leadership is selected. Since you are declining to support it with details, I will have to stick with what I know,

            abwilliamsposted 13 months agoin reply to this

            No problem, you'd "stick with" it regardless of anything I'd share with you.
            Take care. Stay safe!

    This is random, but I am curious. For those that have been here longer than me or have had the wherewithal to stay (I've come and gone a time or two) is there or has there ever been, a black conservative writing for HubPages? Many here have mystery names and faces, I guess that's easier for some to say the things they say (or rather write)
    Would a black Conservative feel comfortable writing for HubPages, I wonder? I've seen some of the awful 'terms' for conservatives such as; Candace Owens, Burgess Owens, Shelby Steele, Herschel Walker, Allen West, Thomas Sowell, Walter Williams, David Webb, Diamond & Silk....too many to name. Again... I am just curious.

      I knew several 5-6years ago, who simply faded away with time. Most were prepared to give as good as they got.

    The youth believe the president is racist. Why?

    abwilliamsposted 13 months ago

    I don't think I could do it Kathryn. I would want to get in their faces and ask, what is wrong with you? Don't be such mindless little zombie twits!
    I would have the Covid crusaders, the America haters, the Trump haters, their hired guns.....ALL in my face, it would not end well.

      I actually did go berserk one of the days. (It was a three day 2-6PM BLM event.) I told everyone at the park, loudly that I was not racist and never have been. (The older African American man who was manning the megaphone was proclaiming that blacks have been persecuted for four centuries. All the protestors were sitting and dutifully listening to his rant. In my mind: "But what about today? What about the progress? The improvements? We had a black president for eight years! The greatness of our black athletes, entertainers and musicians! The love we have for them and our neighbors!" )

      Anyway, one guy said "Get out of here, Bitch."
      and that was about it.
      Some other people laughed saying, "Well, good!"

        Yeah...they didn’t want to hear from you; you weren’t spewing hate nor were you a young mind of mush to manipulate.

        I have to turn off and tune out, otherwise I will be shopping for a new television.

        Where does it end?

          The battle must be fought. Our children need us to remember them and give them a country. The country God gave us.

            So true, Kathryn. COVID-19 is God's message for an America that has turned away from its true meaning.

              ...uh, it came from China. No coincidence. God has nothing to do with it.
