Education is Endless.

Education is endless.
Therefore trying to be educated is worthless!

Dummying down the education system is a very important tool for the ‘boss’ who would like to exploit the mass! To achieve that goal, ‘boss’ controls the media (thought process), educational institutions (schools), opium of the masses (pulpit), lobby groups (power of the lever) etc. etc.

Please examine the followings with an open mind:
1. Iraq Was Invaded to Secure Israel
2. Iraq pullout would hurt Israel
3. Oil, Israel and Iraq
4. Israelis control America

Because of one little illegal and immoral state like Israel, which got no similarities with USA, it’s constitution, way of life or anything; the USA have been fighting and dying like dogs, sacrificing economy, prestige, moral standing, security, etc. etc. Today, it is impossible to conduct a rational debate about Israel in the USA!

What made it possible?

Re: Ignorance in America


No, that is not the reason for American's lack of education at the present. When I was a kid in school, the Texas educational system was excellent, and we were taught the Native American Indian culture, and were well educated in many subjects that are not offered at present day American schools. For example, the subject of World Geography is no longer taught in most American elementary schools. I'm beginning to think American History and Government are no longer stressed in elementary schools.

I do not know why American standards have become so lowered.

It seems that young Americans at present are only interested in computers, cell phones, and cars.

P.S. I still have one of my 5th grade school books... Little Tejas
The story of a young Indian boy of a small Texas tribe of Indians... Tejas meaning "Texas." Tejas pronounced Tey-hahs.

I have never stopped reading good books and educating myself. At present, I am reading Don Quixote by Cervantes... A great book by a great writer.

Education and other things are something which need a root. America does not have any cultural root. The ancient culture of Native Americans was destroyed. This America has only the culture of loot and robbery. so what is the surprise if it is reverting to it.

Clueless in America By Bob Herbert

22/04/08 "New York Times" -- -- We don't hear a great deal about education in the presidential campaign. It's much too serious a topic to compete with such fun stuff as Hillary tossing back a shot of whiskey, or Barack rolling a gutter ball.

The nation's future may depend on how well we educate the current and future generations, but (like the renovation of the nation's infrastructure, or a serious search for better sources of energy) that can wait. At the moment, no one seems to have the will to engage any of the most serious challenges facing the U.S.

An American kid drops out of high school every 26 seconds. That's more than a million every year, a sign of big trouble for these largely clueless youngsters in an era in which a college education is crucial to maintaining a middle-class quality of life — and for the country as a whole in a world that is becoming more hotly competitive every day.

Ignorance in the United States is not just bliss, it's widespread. A recent survey of teenagers by the education advocacy group Common Core found that a quarter could not identify Adolf Hitler, a third did not know that the Bill of Rights guaranteed freedom of speech and religion, and fewer than half knew that the Civil War took place between 1850 and 1900.

"We have one of the highest dropout rates in the industrialized world," said Allan Golston, the president of U.S. programs for the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. In a discussion over lunch recently he described the situation as "actually pretty scary, alarming."

Roughly a third of all American high school students drop out. Another third graduate but are not prepared for the next stage of life — either productive work or some form of post-secondary education.

When two-thirds of all teenagers old enough to graduate from high school are incapable of mastering college-level work, the nation is doing something awfully wrong.

Mr. Golston noted that the performance of American students, when compared with their peers in other countries, tends to grow increasingly dismal as they move through the higher grades:

"In math and science, for example, our fourth graders are among the top students globally. By roughly eighth grade, they're in the middle of the pack. And by the 12th grade, U.S. students are scoring generally near the bottom of all industrialized countries."

Many students get a first-rate education in the public schools, but they represent too small a fraction of the whole.

Bill Gates, the founder of Microsoft, offered a brutal critique of the nation's high schools a few years ago, describing them as "obsolete" and saying, "When I compare our high schools with what I see when I'm traveling abroad, I am terrified for our work force of tomorrow."

Said Mr. Gates: "By obsolete, I don't just mean that they are broken, flawed or underfunded, though a case could be made for every one of those points. By obsolete, I mean our high schools — even when they're working as designed — cannot teach all our students what they need to know today."

The Educational Testing Service, in a report titled "America's Perfect Storm," cited three powerful forces that are affecting the quality of life for millions of Americans and already shaping the nation's future. They are:

• The wide disparity in the literacy and math skills of both the school-age and adult populations. These skills, which play such a tremendous role in the lives of individuals and families, vary widely across racial, ethnic and socioeconomic groups.

• The "seismic changes" in the U.S. economy that have resulted from globalization, technological advances, shifts in the relationship of labor and capital, and other developments.

• Sweeping demographic changes. By 2030, the U.S. population is expected to reach 360 million. That population will be older and substantially more diverse, with immigration having a big impact on both the population as a whole and the work force.

These and so many other issues of crucial national importance require an educated populace if they are to be dealt with effectively. At the moment we are not even coming close to equipping the population with the intellectual tools that are needed.

While we're effectively standing in place, other nations are catching up and passing us when it comes to educational achievement. You have to be pretty dopey not to see the implications of that.

But, then, some of us are pretty dopey. In the Common Core survey, nearly 20 percent of respondents did not know who the U.S. fought in World War II. Eleven percent thought that Dwight Eisenhower was the president forced from office by the Watergate scandal. Another 11 percent thought it was Harry Truman.

Do You Know Musa?

Do You Know Musa?

Do you know Musa? We used to call him Moses.
He was a millionaire. One day he stood up and told his congregation to act like Jews and follow the true commandments of Moses (PBUH), stop supporting terrorism, stop Israeli holocaust in Palestine …. .

They ganged up against him. They poisoned his children’s minds. They also made him bankrupt.

He used to live under the Bays Water Road over bridge. One day I spoke with a good looking young woman, “do you remember this old fellow who used to live under this bridge”. Her reply was, “he died last year and he was my father in-law”. Astonished me, “but why was he living over there”? Her angry response was, “none of your damn business”.

We also know, lady Fairfax virtually killed her own son for refusing to join in the Zionist camp?

Gas Chamber Bound Jews and Zionist Terror Gang are also not unknown to us.

So stop playing games old crook and ask your leaders to debate about barbaric Zionism and ugly Judaism.

The proposition is very simple!
1. "Ugly Judaism Is Incompatible With Any Religion and
2. Zionism Is Incompatible With Any Civilised Society".
So ask your Jewish/Israeli/Zio-Nazi leaders to follow the path of democracy and respect free speech by participating in open debates! Do not hide under the rocks.

So, please invite Jewish/Zionist/Israeli cowards to come out of their closets and debate like a human being (if they are in the first place).

Re: Islam is Incompatible with Democracy Zionist Criminals,

As I said, ""Ugly Judaism Is Incompatible With Any Religion and Zionism Is Incompatible With Any Civilised Society". In support of my claims I have presented an extended dossier in front of 1200 people. Now, answer them, debate them before volunteering to the nearest gas chamber as it is long overdue.

Oh, how do you know he is a good "comentator" (coMMentator) on "middle eastern" affairs? Is it because he does not know how to spell commentator like you and full of prejudice and bigotry like all other Nazi Zionists?!

Could you ask him to answer Faruque, please. After all he has delivered only 12 page dossier to all of them. Most importantly Faruque's call for "Ugly Judaism Is Incompatible With Any Religion and Zionism Is Incompatible With Any Civilised Society" scared a few people.

Islam is Incompatible with Democracy
"Islam is Incompatible with Democracy" was the theme of the debate.
In the for group;
1. Daniel Pipes
2. Paul Sheehan
3. Dr. Tanveer Ahmed
In the against group;
1. Dr. Samina Yasmeen
2. Ms. Amina Rasul
3. Waleed Ali.
Prior to the debate poll result was;
1. Yes: 38
2. No: 42
3. Undecided: 20
After the debate the result was;
1. Yes: 48
2. No: 52.
Therefore the group of Daniel Pipes lost the debate. In other words, Islam is compatible with democracy. Would you believe, under pressure, Pipes agreed too!

During the question/statement time I said, "the holy Qur-an is like constitution and Hadiths are like Case and Statue laws. On top of these guidelines, debate and discussions are permitted and they used to practice a fairly good democratic process. However, today, the democracy is under the barrels of guns in Pakistan, aided and abetted by the USA for their own-interest. Egypt is in the same direction. Again, the corporate governments of USA destroyed the democracy of Algeria earlier.

However, knowing the specific blinker of Pipes, I have to say, "Ugly Judaism Is Incompatible With Any Religion and Zionism Is Incompatible With Any Civilised Society". I also promised to handover an extended dossier to each panel members in support of my argument. At the end of the meeting I passed them on and waiting for a reply.

After the debate couple of young ladies said, "we know you, we saw you in many rallies, do you mind if we take some photos with you and your famous T-shirt". I had a chuckle with them and they took some photos.

Some people who were `scared' of me because of my T-Shirt or look prior to the debate asked me for my fliers and I gave them until they finished.

However, prior to the meeting some predictable people complained to the security about my pole/bumper stickers, "Free Palestine" and "Stop Genocide in Iraq". They were ignored.

Some people complained about my existence at the door of the Sydney Recital Hall. They too, have not had enough luck. Some of them refused to take my fliers and look at me with contempt. Yet, I maintained civility with them.

A few of them came and told me, "your materials are disgusting". I said, "according to your opinion". The reply was, "it is a fact". My response was, "based on what evidence". After a few exchanges, I said, "what Daniel Pipes preaches and practices are really disgusting, not my arguments because they are based on facts. One said, "you should not be allowed here in the first place". One shouted, "you are smiling like an innocent baby while distributing offensive materials and wearing a disgusting T-Shirt". I said, "where is the free speech and do you believe in selective free speech only"? They too, complained to the security and management without any luck.

I said to myself, during the Howard period we were gradually loosing free speech and democracy, dummying down education, `children over board' and `truth over board' overtook free press and publications, public servants were muzzled and bullied into submission!

Under Kevin Rudd may be we are going to regain them now.

Oh, I did not have a ticket for the venue. During my adventure I went inside to get a ticket without any success. Anyway, I continued my mission. At one stage I noticed a nice person was hanging around me. I asked him, "do I know you". His reply was, "I know you from the Politics in the Pub … ". Naturally, we continued to discus a few issues. At one stage he said, "I love to talk to you but I got a small problem". I said, "what is it"? His response was, "I've got four tickets but one of my friend is not coming and I have to offload one". I laughingly said, "your problem is my problem and please give me that ticket'. Yes, he gave me the ticket for half of the actual price while the 1200 seat venue had many powerful standby buyers.

Well, next time if I see this journalist bugger, I'll shout him a nice cuppa.

Oh, I forgot to tell you, Daniel is not a bright fellow. His arguments are based on prejudice and bigotry rather than facts or meticulous analysis. He is not a Middle East expert at all. The evidence is Iraq, Afghanistan and tonight's debate! Self declared experts like him forced the USA in quagmires after quagmires without any remorse whatsoever!
