  • I have heard that a lot of high schools have dropped Civicx classes. I guess that they think that the students can heard it in back alleys (the internet).

  • What easier way to remove the rights of people, than never educating them about their rights.

  • There is no doubt a knowledge of civics would be so important. But, it did not seem that students attached much importance to it. We have had it way too easy for way too long.

  • I would have much rather had Civics than Physics, but alas, I had them both.

  • I loved Physics; still do. And I really like Civics because of the teacher: "Bodacious" Cleveland, who was also Principal. Steve, you should be glad that you weren't taking Texas Civics.

  • The Bill of Rights is important, altho I doubt 1% of Americans know them now (except freedom of speech and freedom to bare arms). But, what I am consistently astounded by is how little people know about the structure and function of the various branches and levels of government. People simply do not know what is done by the federal, state, or local governments... and when it comes to the finances, they know even less.

  • And to think we are churning out young voters every year who think they understand what is going on through Social Media. Talk about malleable minds.

    To be honest tho, social media is probably no more of a negative influence on them than the indoctrination they get in school. If they do a little looking around and bother to read what they find, some will at least get a little exposure to conservative and libertarian ideas.

    Right-wing kool-aid straight from the office of the POTUS.

    Here is a Civics Lesson for you.

    1. Still no word on what Trump meant when he said everyone will remember 11.11.18!

    I think the voter fraud may have delayed his plans.

    2. Just out! California is a Sanctuary State for illegals. Trump cut their gov. funds. California is broke, very broke and can't feed all the illegals laying around in their towns in front of the stores and on highways doing drugs.

    Wonder how they are getting drugs but not food.

    So California is setting the fires to create a "State of Emergency" so they will qualify for federal aid.

    Look at the number of fires the past 2 years then compare with past 10 years. Look at the damage of these fires past 2 years to the past 10 years. It is a rush job to get the Federal Aid NOW!

    Trump told them he is cutting their aid further if they don't start doing something to prevent the fires.

    Also the people in charge, CA Governor, 2 Senators, Head of the land Management, Fire department and maybe some more should be facing resignation and criminal charges under Trump's Executive order against human abuse.

    The people of CA could bring Class Action lawsuits against the State and Counties for Damages and Injuries against the people including some deaths - (MURDERS).

    3. Trump is at War with the Deep State. His latest move is remove Sessions so he can bring in his (part-time) Stealth Bomber (Whitaker). Whitaker (AG) will be over Rod Jay Rosenstein (Deputy AG). He will order an update on the Mueller investigation, giving Trump all the information he needs to bring charges and shut it down. Whitaker doesn't need to recuse himself because he never had anything to do with Trump's Campaign nor the Russians. Why would he recuse himself. If he did, it would be a stupid and lifetime error for him because Trump would Fire, then just replace him.

    Trump may not be the #1 man, but he is way ahead of whoever is in the #2 place.

    You won't read this in the Times Gazette Newspaper! Your welcome!

    Sui, maybe you can explain something to me. Why are the dimcrats so mad about Sessions getting canned? Less than 2 years ago they were apoplectic that he got the job. Surely it couldn't be because they will act that way no matter what Trump does or doesn't do. Could it? Not that this would ever happen, but it sure would be interesting to see the response if Trump came out in favor of abortion. Maybe that would force them to be against killing the yet to be born. Well, something to think about.

    Here's why;

    Trump told Sessions to resign so it would look like he is firing Sessions.

    Trump is at WAR with the Deep State.

    "You are watching/witnessing the systematic destruction of the OLD GUARD", as Trump puts it.

    By taking Sessions out of the Picture, Trump can bring in a new "AG" who doesn't have to be questioned by Congress. ( That is why Trump only campaigned to get Senators and not House reps. Trump wanted to win the Senate so he could appoint judges and Supreme Court Justices without having to have them confirmed by the Congress.

    NOW Watch! AG Whitaker is D.J. Trump's Stealth Bomber. (AG_ Whitaker can quietly move in and take control over Rod Rosenstein (Deputy AG). He tells Rod what to do because he (Whitaker) does NOT have to recuse himself from the investigation.

    The Democrats think Whitaker should have to recuse himself, but he doesn't because he didn't work on Trumps campaign nor was he speaking to Russians at the time about the elections etc. That makes the Dems mad as hell. They lost to the man they called the idiot, who is way ahead of them.

    Here's what will happen. Rosenstien will have to report to the new Stealth Bomber, AG meaning he has to hand over files and documents in the Mueller investigation. That is going to make the Dems even more upset because they never saw it coming. They were too busy boasting about winning the House.

    Now I am going to blow it wide open. NO, I decided everyone can not handle what I typed here. I had to delete it for everyone's peace of mind. I'll just hint around to the jest of it.

    The Deep State is very, very, very, very, very corrupt and EVIL!

    They are behind the Human Trafficking of children and teens and woman as well. Watch the women and children in the front of the Caravans coming to the United States. They put the women and children in the front. As each day goes by, more and more women and children are disappearing. They are being raped and kidnapped and given to the Deep State.

    When you watch Hillary and some of these other Politicians and Movie Stars and big corporation CEOs, look at their eyes. They ***** this ***** to make them younger looking, but it makes them look and act like Zombies. If you get a chance to see Hillary on the news before she is taken away in December, look at her and tell me she doesn't look and act and walk like a Zombie.

    They are Satanic and that makes them hateful because Trump is cleaning out the swamp and there is nothing they can do about it. Their brains are shot from their Heinous habits.

    Trump will be working to clean up the earth not just USA and is putting us back on the Gold Standard by shutting down the Central Banks and Federal Reserve which will do away with the IRS and all the Banking Fraud. People will get money back from the fraud of these Banks and Mortgage companies. These are just some of the GREAT Things Trump is doing to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.

    ABORTION? It all fits together.

    Sessions has been arresting thousands of these child trafficker organizations and employees and returning some of the children to their families. These are just sick and evil people running our world. THANK YOU GOD and TRUMP! KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK.
