I return to a common theme and I know that it is redundant and that I’m preaching to the choir, but idiocy appears to be everlasting and, as a result, it must be bashed in the head once again although it surely will not be a mortal blow. What aggravates me most is that the ‘common man’ is continually hoodwinked by the Right; it is as if they are preprogrammed for deception. Why is this so? Is it truly all about money and race? I’m beginning to think so.
On the editorial page of today’s Toledo Blade is an op ed titled, War on Common Core: The right aims to keep America stupid written by NYT columnist Bill Keller. I have not read the article. I don’t need to. I experience it every day in conversations and news stories. The theme of keeping America stupid is everywhere from school to the marketplace, from finance to church.
The only thing I am not sure of is how much more time we have until The People are completely and irrevocably sucked into the giant black hole known as Right Wing idiocy. How much time do we have?
