The below video is a year old and you may have seen it before. If you have not seen it, make sure to watch it. if you already have seen it, watch it again. it is worth watching again and again especially if you have children or if you ever converse with the younger generation or if you wonder exactly what it is they are teaching in schools today; obviously it is not United States history.
Folks, if you care anything about our history and assuring that it remains unforgotten altogether then you should be talking about it with the young folks in America, especially with your own children. Then again, it might be a good idea to discuss things like current events and politics with them too.
It boggles my mind that these airheads had no clue as to who fought or won the Civil War, from whom the United States gained independence, or who is our current vice president. Yet they knew who was Snookie (I had almost no clue except for seeing the name in some commercials on TV awhile back) or who was married to whom in the world of entertainment. Our educational system and especially our educators are an absolute disgrace when college students do not have a clue as to some of the most basic questions that could be asked about our history or our current federal government. Then again, so too are a disgrace the parents who never took the time to get their kids involved enough in our country's history and day to day business enough to know those basic historical facts or to know who is our vice president.
A hat tip and my thanks to Rich M for reminding me of that video.
All the best,
