What Do Obamacare and Common Core Have in Common?

********************

THEY ARE BOTH MEANT TO FAIL THEIR PURPORTED BENEFICIARIES

How bad is Obamacare? It is so bad that it’s miserableness couldn’t have happened by chance or stupidity. The ‘Final Solution’ nature of it dawned on us the other day when some guest commentators who were professionals in the website development business were mocking and joking about the Healthcare.gov website and how utterly ridiculous it was in achieving it’s stated goal of serving tens of millions of customers, not to mention the total lack of security protocols in the system as developed.

These analysts proceeded to estimate that a system capable of doing what it was supposed to do could have been built at a cost of single-digit millions of dollars instead of the hundreds of millions supposedly dished out for what we have today.
When we couple what the experts say with the fact that the contractor for the Healthcare.gov site didn’t just go into business last year but has been around for a long time and apparently, up until this gig, has been successful enough to be a global competitor, we can only conclude that they weren’t incompetent – they did what they were told to do.

Our point is that Obamacare is so bad, so obviously bad, that the ulterior motive in it’s conceptualization, false advertisement by the Progressive political operatives, in office and out, and promulgation by the legislative and administrative branches, had to be deleterious to people’s health. (If you know what we mean)

And now to Common Core. People are starting to wake up to the horrors of this New Age Education Marvel being foisted upon the country by the Progressive Statist Ruling Class, those who know better than you and I about ….knowing things, or so we are told. Among those sounding the alarm are the folks at Missouri Education Watchdog.  This is their latest example of expose’ and it’s a doozy.

From McGraw-Hill Common Core aligned curriculum My Math.

Perhaps those of you younger folk who grew up under the regimen of The New Math of the 1970’s and 80’s can relate to this in some way, but for those of us really old school (pre-1970’s), this stuff is nothing but a maze of gibberish.

Now, how much money do you suppose the contractors spent on constructing the hoops that little Johnny must condition himself to jumping through in order to subtract eight from fourteen? Do you detect any similarity between the output of CGI in the Obamacare example above and the output of McGraw-Hill in educating the youth of today? It is insane. It is laughable. and true educators, and involved school district patrons around the country increasingly so, know it is a farce.
It is so transparently ludicrous that it must have been designed to fail. It must have been designed to deliberately frustrate and traumatize it’s supposed  beneficiaries so much that they would abandon the pursuit of knowledge altogether, because it is so unbearably tortuous and counterintuitive. Pity the poor little frustrated 1st grader quoted in the article –

“Mom, can’t I just subtract 8 from 14?”

Oh, and there’s one more way, at least, that Obamacare and Common Core compare. You know how in the Obamacare signup regimen, it is required that you enter all of your personal, and heretofore confidential, information just to be allowed to browse the wonderful cyber aisles down at your local Health Care Exchange? Well, if you want your child to be clued in on the amazing new methodology behind 2+2= Something Approaching Five, you and your children will have to surrender your personal information, and agree to keep it updated, current and available for inspection, at your Not So Common Knowledge Core outlet as well. Yes, folks, data mining is so beneficial in the National Security Arena, the government thought it would also be a good idea for you to turn over all your facts and figures, likes and dislikes, as it guides you through it’s intended scheme for your future.

Well, those of you who escape the Death Panels under Obamacare and avoid being Slave Labor Camp dropouts from Common Core Math, anyway.

Obamacare = Quality, Affordable … Death. Common Core = Quality, Affordable …Servitude.

It’s all good.

  1. Bob, parents are starting to understand what conservatives have been warning about because little Johnny & Susie are coming home in tears with failing grades. Unfortunately, and despite vehement opposition to Common Core by conservatives and most Republicans in Alabama, our Senate President Pro Tem, Del Marsh, is refusing to bring a repeal bill to the floor for a vote. The legislation is too “controversial” for an election year, and he and others “stand” with the state Board of Education which supports Common Core (excepting 2 conservative board members & Governor Bentley) along with State Superintendent of Education, Tommy Bice. He’s pretty much told us to shut up and go away.

    Hmmm. I wonder if this has anything to do with the amount of money the Business Council of Alabama (Common Core supporter) donates to certain candidates. Reasonable assumption since one state legislator told a fellow tea party member that if we wanted them to listen, we needed to start writing $100 checks. Another told me that the BCA was the biggest obstacle to repeal and remained silent when I asked if the BCA ran the legislature. I’ve been told that Bice has commented that the BCA is the largest consumer of the products of the education system in Alabama. So now our kids are just products.

    Politicians – on both sides – are selling out our children on every front.

      • Worse still, the teachers & principals are telling the kids and parents to shut about it. The other night our tea party sponsored a session about the Common Core where I heard an account first-hand from a parent who was begging the teacher & principal to tell him what he could do to help his 2nd grader who is failing (kid did great in K & 1st grade). The teacher told him the CC standards are “rigorous” (buzz word) which implies the kid just doesn’t get it. The principal basically told the dad that he couldn’t help his son at home because he didn’t know/understand the CC. Needless to say, the dad wasn’t happy about it and is letting our legislators know. Second time I’ve heard directly from a parent who was told to not help their kids at home.
