    People Think 1st Amendment Under Attack But Don't Know What's In It

    On the negative side, students in the US lag other industrial countries in math, science and reading proficiency. On the positive side they know how to put on a condom, that gender is fluid, and that protesting is more important than attending classes to learn math, science, reading, or the US Constitution. Given that, the results of this study are not that surprising.

    New research shows that while many Americans fear the First Amendment is under threat, three quarters don’t even know how many amendments make up the Bill of Rights.

    And we all, myself included, suck at proof reading and auto correct.
    No enemy of America would have ever been killed if they didn't show up to be killed. HDR

    As for college students, there is a book I read many years ago, "Revenge of Heaven". It was written by a Chinese about his time as a student during Mao's Red Guard purges, and how the college students were used as the useful idiots to do the purges.

    Let the democrats gain control of the government again, and Heaven will no doubt extract revenge again.


    From Amazon com's description of the book

    "Description
    Ken Ling writes an autobiographical brutal account of his teenage years in China during the Cultural Revolution. It is the inside story of how Chinese Red Guard organizations functioned and what their leaders were thinking. He makes clear throughout this blunt book, he and his fellow students weren't in it for money or ideology; they just wanted power. His story is a microcosm of the horrific events of the Cultural Revolution. The most brutal violence - gang rapes, mindless killings, torture - were commonplace. By the end, Ken has become deeply disillusioned and escapes to Taiwan."
