#CommonCore This is how the Government gets the unemployment rate.



What. The. Fuck. Is. This. Shit.

what “progressive” education in america is turning into.

THE FUCK’S THIS SHIT

what the hell is that supposed to even mean? I had to read over the explanation twice, and I’m taking algebra 2. 

I think it’s supposed to be teaching kids that 8+5 and 10+3 are the same thing, but that’s not really phrased well?

The question is confusing as hell.
I mean, yeah- you pass by 10 on the road to 13 using the 8+5 expressway, but you don’t stop there.
It’s an idiotic concept to begin with. Why bother asking the question? What possible purpose does that answer have?
I feel like I’m taking crazy pills.

My 8 year old niece is currently dealing with this bullshit. Let me tell you, I have never felt so bad for her in my life. She has literally cried in the shower saying “I don’t get it, why don’t I get it”. Simply because of the common core method bullshit. If you went into a job today and used this common core crap, you would either be fired, or not get the job. This is the worst thing to happen to the public school system since I can remember.

Is it some kind of lateral thinking exercise? If so- why are they trying to get 3rd graders to think this way?
What is the lesson here?

as every day passes, homeschooling looks like an increasingly viable option

Common core was designed to make the absolute stupidest of the stupid feel valued, and make the shining examples of childhood intelligence feel stupid. It’s a horrible system that should be abolished. I would absolutely tutor every kid in the neighborhood so they didn’t have to deal with this shit for fucking FREEEEEE, I hate common core so much.

If I had a kid and this happened to them I would go yell at the teacher/principal. Ask them what the hell it was. Ask them to explain it to me. Then say “If I, an adult with a college degree, don’t understand what you’re teaching how do you expect a young child to understand?!”

Oh man..I would have a complete and utter melt down if I had to learn things this way.

So….I totally never thought about this. I’m sure very few of you have. I don’t know about you, but I’m a bit disturbed…


Wow. Food for thought. I’m sure there’s an answer though.


Their names were translated/Anglicized after going from Greek to English.
The names of the Apostles are of Greek, Aramaic and Hebrew origins. The Hebrew, Aramaic and “Greek” named Apostles were:  Shim’on = Simon (Hebrew origin).  Y’hochanan = John (Hebrew origin).  Mattithyahu = Matthew (Hebrew origin).  Ya’aqov = James (Hebrew origin meaning Jacob).  Bar-Tôlmay = Bartholomew (Aramaic, which is related to Hebrew).  Judah = Jude / Saint Jude (not to be confused with Judas Iscariot, Hebrew origin).  Yehuda = Judas Iscariot (Hebrew origin, Betrayed Yeshua/Yehosua the Messiah).  Cephas / Kephas = Peter (Hebrew / Aramaic origin meaning “Rock”).  Tau’ma = Thomas (Aramaic origin).  Andrew = Andrew (Greek origin. Is the brother of Cephas / Kephas).  Phillip = Phillip (Greek origin).  You will note that there are only 11 names, that is because there were 2 Apostles named Ya’aqov (James), which brings the total to 12 apostles.

To expand on this, Jesus’s name is Anglicized in this way as well. We get Jesus from the Latin form of the Greek “Ἰησοῦς”(Iēsous), which is derived from the Herbrew “ישוע”(Yeshu’a, which meant “YHWH is Salvaion”, YHWH, or Yahweh being the name of God). When another form of that name, ” יְהוֹשֻׁעַ”(Yeoshu’a) was allowed to Anglicize through a different set of corruptions, it entered the English Language through Reformist Protestants as the name “Joshua”.Yes. Jesus’s actual name is Joshua.

In a post-Ferguson world, Americans increasingly doubt the notion of colorblind justice.

HOW THE FUCK DID THE PERCENTAGE GO UP FOR WHITE PEOPLE
IN WHAT UNIVERSE DOES A POLICE OFFICER SHOOTING AN UNARMED BLACK KID (AND THEN ATTEMPTING TO COVER IT UP AFTER THE FACT) CONSTITUTE EQUAL TREATMENT IN THE JUSTICE SYSTEM
LIKE WHO LOOKS AT THAT AND GOES “WELL, BEFORE I THOUGHT THAT THERE WAS RACISM IN OUR JUSTICE SYSTEM, BUT THEN THIS SHIT HAPPENED AND NOW I SEE THAT IT’S PERFECTLY EQUAL”
WHAT THE FUCK

This increase can be explained by an interesting social phenomenon called ‘denial.’

They benefit from not knowing.. and from believing in myths. 

Comparing beliefs before and after Michael Brown’s murder and the surrounding revelations of racism that have sprung out of it, white people, as a demographic believe, MORE THAN EVER BEFORE, that the criminal justice system treats whites and blacks equally.That is, MORE white people believe the criminal justice system treats black equally now than they did before Michael Brown’s death.In essence, for white people, blatant systemic oppression and the murder of an unarmed young black man gives them even more reason to believe blacks are treated fairly by the system.This confirms an earlier study that said the more you tell white people that the system is inherently racist, the more they supported harsher punishments for black people: http://thinkprogress.org/justice/2014/08/07/3468368/study-white-people-support-harsher-criminal-laws-if-they-think-more-black-people-are-arrested/Marinate on these inhumanities for a second.
