English derives from Saxon Old German and Plattdeutsch (Low German in the North East).

Most of the info I get on this topic is from Alan Watt. I do look into most of what he speaks of. From Merry Christmas and Chatham house and to the likes of Rhodes, Russell, Huxley, Orwell. These people, all elitist wishing to rule over us.

Can you blame a cow for not being able to walk, when you cut it's legs off?

Re: Why Americans Are Retarded
No need to be defensive. OP is essentially correct. The U.S. education system is a disaster. Apparently by design.

"AFTER SOBER and judicious consideration, and weighing one thing against another in the interests of reasonable compromise, H. L. Mencken concluded that a startling and dramatic improvement in American education required only that we hang all the professors and burn down the schools. His uncharacteristically moderate proposal was not adopted. Those who actually knew more about education than Mencken did could see that his plan was nothing more than cosmetic and would in fact provide only an outward appearance of improvement. Those who knew less, on the other hand, had somewhat more elaborate plans of their own, and they just happened to be in charge of the schools.

Those who knew less, to be specific, were the members of the National Education Association's Commission on the Reorganization of Secondary Education, a.k.a. The Gang of Twenty-seven, now long forgotten but certainly not gone. They builded better than they knew, and their souls go marching on in every school in America today. The Commission was established in 1913, the year that also brought us the income tax. Many of its members were functionaries of school bureaucracies, from the United States Commissioner of Education himself down through supervisors and associate superintendents and principals and even a high school inspector, whatever that was, to no less a personage than a senior educational secretary of the YMCA. Professors and assistant professors of education represented the higher learning. One of them was chairman of the committee on mathematics, naturally, while the committees on lesser disciplines, notably classical and modern languages, were directed by high school teachers. The stern sciences were served by a professor of education, while the smiling sciences like social studies and the other household arts were overseen by federal bureaucrats. In the whole motley crew there were no scientists, no mathematicians, no historians, no traditional scholars of any sort."

Re: Why Americans Are Retarded
Theres a difference between dumb, ignorant and retarded.

If you dont know anything about a subject you are ignorant of that subject. If you only know lies about it, you are still ignorant of that subject.

Dumb would be when you fail to learn the truth being taught or taught lies about the subject and when presented with the truth, still believe the lies. But you can understand whats being discussed.

To be retarded means you have a learning difficulty that inhibits your ability to learn or understand the facts. In truth it means to slow or retard your learning experience. You can learn and recite the constitution, but you have no idea what you are saying. They are just words to you. no meaning behind them.

Americans may be ignorant about a lot of subjects, but this is hardly an American phenomenon. Every country has their own subset of retard people, ignorant people and dumb people. I am thinking you are one of Britans dumb subset. For you understand well enough and your intention to insult was duly noted, but you totally blew it with your lack of knowledge and true understanding of the words you chose to use.


I already knew and intentionally used the word retard in it's more slang meaning. Good job pointing out the obvious.

You also need to decide whether or not you wish to integrate or separate the two clauses in a grammatically correct manner.

For instance:

"I'm quite aware that English had its many influences. Thanks for pointing out the irrelevantly obvious......NOT!"

OR:

"I'm quite aware that English had its many influences, so thanks for pointing out the irrelevantly obvious......NOT!"

You'll also note that I've rendered 'English' in upper-case.

Re: Why Americans Are Retarded
Sounds like some elitist propaganda to me.
 Quoting: Prisoner of Technology


Do not believe everything the news tells you, even if it tells you Americans are dumb. There are lies, damned lies, statistics.



"Everyone year 50% of Americans get the answer wrong to does the earth orbit the sun and does it take a year."

This sentence doesn't even make sense.
----
"Over 90% of middle-school science teachers haven't taken a science course beyond high-school."

"60% of US adults stated their belief that God created humans in their present form less than 10,000 years ago."(April 2007)

"53% of American adults are unaware that the last Dinosaur died before the first human arose. "

What are the numbers/demographics of these stats? For all we know it can be 90/100 middle school teachers near more rural areas of America, it doesn't make the statistic any less true except it does not ACCURATELY project the level of education of middle school teachers across the nation.

It's not hate it's a serious problem you need to come to terms with, just look at the statistics, compare what happens in your education system to other well developed countries.

It is far from the state you described. If you go to UK's countryside and it doesnt really matter whether it is Wales, Scotland or England, you can search for non-Whites with a lens and you wount find any. You can drive for miles and miles and all you will meet/see is white people.

It is true that some parts of the cities or better said neighbourhoods are full of Arabs or they are a majority but those are isolated parts of cities AND(from my experience) this is only witnessed in the Midlands. Meaning cities like Birmingham and down to London. This area is the most filled with non whites but stil white people are very much the majority here. What I was surprised about is the lack of black people. I thought there is much, much more of blacks in England but comparing to the Arabs they are allmost nonexistent.

I hope a large part of that is from preschoolers and those ancient ones with advance medical problems, the one guess rule probably help when dealing with the inebriated ones polled.

Knowing more than you are allowed to teach just adds expenses to their own education bill.

That would fall on the shoulders of their spiritual leaders rather than it being a mental defect of the sheep. Perhaps they know in they dug down and found they were being lied to they might willingly break some commandments they had sort of made promises not to. They can certainly hold back the money and not attend the sermons. Watch how fast that would straighten out the top layers.

Perhaps more TV that shows interesting things that actually have some value. The number of ones that can't afford such things would make any progress as they are probably more interested in not following the same path all the extinct species have taken.

What middle schoolers knew in the '40's is more than College does these days. I would be really messed up without a spell-checker
