Forget them . . .

And there is a price to pay.

Yet again.

history

But with ill-taught students - our uninformed voters undeterred by their lack of knowledge and historical perspective - deciding who our leaders are to be, for years, there need be no forgetting involved at all.

They just do not know, and their learning, for the first time, the reasons for the how and why we had done things, limiting our governance in accordance with our Constitution's wisdom, avoiding aggregation of political power and influence in our polity, will come late, and maybe never.

Condemning us by their lack of knowledge of history right along with them.

As, perhaps, was the intent of those whose endless search for more power and influence, and who have had so much to do with the emasculation of our public (and private) school systems, for that very reason.

Scary . . .

No?

Update:

They don't need no stinkin' lessons.

Are you surprised that Obama won the youth vote even though his policies are a complete disaster for the young?

We are losing the fight to the lowest of low information voters, who are pushed toward a liberal agenda by very smart and talented people who understand the power of social media in a way we don’t.

So often when I ask readers to follow us on Facebook and Twitter, I’m met with comments about privacy concerns on Facebook and “I don’t do Twitter” type responses. Fair enough, but at least understand the swarm effect a website like Upworthy can create based on dumbed-down politically-savvy social media interactions, and how that swarm may result in Elizabeth Warren being on the Democratic 2016 ticket if Hillary doesn’t run.

When I read about plans for Republicans planning to narrow the digital divide, I can’t help thinking we are fighting the last war.

You down with that?

If not, the time to do something about it is now.

Professor Jacobson would no doubt be willing to help you do it.
