    I agree education is dumbing down to the lowest common denominator, but ask an eighth kid in the early 1900s to design a website, make a power point presentation, design an excel spreadsheet to conduct a what if analysis, and you will likely be accused of coming from Mars.

    Things are different now. Some ways better, some ways worse.

    You only have to look at the fact that Obama was elected twice to realize how dumbed down the American people have become.

    Exactly! And/or how rampant voter fraud really is.

    It should be easier for today's kids. They don't even have to remember Andrew Johnson. They can answer "Bill Clinton for lying about blow jobs" to #9 under the history section.

    How many times was FDR elected? He is often called a major socialist by many of those on the right.

    FDR can thank Obama...well if he were alive. He was the worst President ever before Obama came in office.

    Should we teach hunting and gathering too?

    If everyone learned everything from the past, there'd be no room for advancement.

    If the Liberals keep killing all of our energy options then the answer to your question is yes. Liberal: No to coal, no to nuclear energy, no to NG, no to oil....

    And now they attack Texas... I'm betting on Texas to kick Holder's ass.
