For The Times We Live in Now

There is only one success - to be able to spend your life in your own way, and not to give others absurd maddening claims upon it.
Christopher Morley

I am morphing again with this site of 8 years! Since no one reads this I can play with it! I have strong opinions and a lifetime worth of experience to share.

A REAL SOLUTION FOR NOW

Our Children do not need computers, powerpoint, or any other technology in the classroom. What the Children need K through 12th grade are the foundations for life long learning. They need arithmetic and higher mathematics, they need science taught with labs, they need to learn how to read and understand what they read, they need to learn and practice how to think and express themselves in writing (with pencils and pens and paper) using more than a vocabulary of 100 words. They need to learn self control, self discipline, and the idea of self sacrifice for the whole. They need to evolve to critical thinkers and not be a mindless game player and then a mindless follower. They need their time spent in pursuit of civic responsibility and not into cyber bullying and cyber sexting. Our Children are too privileged with an overload of cheap consumer goods, cheap junk food, cheap junk thoughts and cheap entertainment. All the computers and kindles will not help this nation stop its downward slide. Fewer and fewer people are life long learners. The reduction of newspapers in this country is a good example. We are a nation of sheep and we are being fleeced by the Republicans, Democrats, Tea Party types and all of those who have their head in the distant past of former glory or tucked in the sand. The sky is falling and no one will even look up.

Here is a worthy place to donate money to. In these times it is better to give a little than not at all and if you cancel Cable TV and use each months cost saved to send to a new charity each month you will be a happier person. And Maybe read a book or two instead of being a slave to Boob Toobus.
