Here’s the skinny on Common Core and the election. THE VOTERS ARE JUST BEGINNING TO FIND OUT WHAT IN TARNATION COMMON CORE IS!!! The candidates who ran on repealing Common Core had a major disadvantage because they had to educate the voters on what Common Core is and how it was brought into our schools like the biggest Trojan Horse you ever saw! The two biggest transformative government policies of our lifetimes were never voted on by the American people. Yes, I’m talking about Common Core and Obamacare.
Amazingly, Common Core was far more insidious. Do you know this tale of intrigue? It’s worth doing your own digging, but here’s the basic gist of it. The federal government said to the states, “Here’s a big pile of cash for education. It’s called Race To The Top.” Some of the states said, “Sweet! We’ll take it!” without batting an eyelash. A few states said, “What’s the catch?” to which the Fed said, “Oh, nothing at all, really. We’re coming up with some new standards for education that you’ll love. Just sign on the bottom line and take the money. TRUST US.”
With Common Core, nobody new anything about it until it started biting our kids in classrooms across America. Now, with this blood-sucking vampire we’ve unknowingly invited into our schools, some of us are running around like the Coreys (Corey Haim and Corey Feldman) in The Lost Boys, throwing garlic and holy water at everything that moves and trying desperately to drive a stake through the heart of this creepy monster. Incidentally, if memory serves, wasn’t Max (the nice guy who turned out to be the head vampire) a school superintendent or something?
So basically, the states whose economies are generally in the toilet by design of the ever-growing, ever-controlling federal government, took the money and figured, “How bad can it be?”
Finally, we have a little prelude to Thanksgiving.
