It’s the new national pastime. Fuck baseball. It’s consumption. The only true lasting American value that’s left. Buying things. Buying things. People spending money they don’t have on things they don’t need. Money they don’t have on things they don’t need. So they can max out their credit cards and spend the rest of their lives paying eighteen percent interest on something that cost $12.50. And they didn’t like it when they got it home anyway. Not too bright folks. Not too fucking bright.
But if you talk to one of them about this. If you isolate one of them, you sit them down rationally, and you talk to them about the low IQs and the dumb behavior and the bad decisions. Right away they start talking about education. That’s the big answer to everything. Education. They say we need more money for education. We need more books. More teachers. More classrooms. More schools. We need more testing for the kids. You say to them, well, you know, we’ve tried all of that and the kids still can’t pass the tests.
They say, Don’t you worry about that. We’re going to lower the passing grades. And thats what they do in a lot of these schools now. They lower the passing grades so more kids can pass. More kids pass, the school looks good, everybody’s happy, the IQ of the country slips another two or three points and pretty soon all you’ll need to get into college is a fucking pencil. Got a pencil? Get the fuck in there, its physics. Then everyone wonders why other seventeen countries graduate more scientists than we do.
About your Native American name post. The one about Indians naming their children about whatever was outside of their tipi.
Actually I did a report on Sitting Bull and his name was originally Jumping Badger. Names change through time based on traits and accomplishments. Sitting Bull's name was Jumping Badger and his nickname was Slow because he was a lot calmer than the other children and more interested in learning rather than running around. His father's name was Sitting Bull because he had recieved it in a vision. When Jumping Badger was 14 he proved himself in battle and to honor him he was renamed Sitting Bull. Then the elder Sitting Bull's name changed to Jumping Bull.
Sitting Bull also adopted a brother from another tribe and when the boy had a chance to return to his tribe he decided to stay with the Sioux so he was called Stays Back. Later in life Stays Back became a BAMF and was renamed Kills Often.
So sorry, but your post is completely inaccurate and further promotes common stereotypes about a culture that have suffered enough already. I probably would have believed it and ignored it if it weren't for the fact that you mentioned Sitting Bull and I realized you were 100% wrong. I don't usually go out of my way to be a bitch, but these fucking stereotypes are driving me crazy.
