Apparently my last letter to the editor of the Mountain Democrat caused someone to send me a brochure explaining the reason for the pink tubing that is being pushed along our mountain roads. Its purpose is to get the federal government’s “Common Core” education program rammed into every school in this country regardless of where it may be. Not only will this make all K-12 children get to the same educational level year by year but will also generate, for the federal government, a database of what all those children did at least though grade 12.
Remembering Nazi Germany during the 1930s, how long now will it take for the mighty federal government to decree that all children in K-12 must wear similar uniforms? And, when they have learned to march, as they must learn to raise their arms in ”Sieg Heil” poses when they pass by our leader’s podium (assuming he can see them past the teleprompters)?
The idiots who voted in this administration are repeating the action of the German citizens who gladly welcomed Hitler to take over their country. I hope they like what they are getting.
