Predictably awful.

It’s exactly what critics of the Common Core school curriculum warned about: Partisan political statements masquerading as English lessons finding their way into elementary school classrooms.

Teaching materials aligned with the controversial national educational standards ask fifth-graders to edit such sentences as “(The president) makes sure the laws of the country are fair,” “The wants of an individual are less important than the well-being of the nation” and “the commands of government officials must be obeyed by all.” The sentences, which appear in worksheets published by New Jersey-based Pearson Education, are presented not only for their substance, but also to teach children how to streamline bulky writing.

Did someone resurrect Stalin to outline this program?

Every time a Common Core proponent tells me I am imagining things evidence seems to show up that makes my imagination very, very vivid.

The Obama administration, for all its naive kleptomania and corruption, is simply showing us how you bring on a socialist, bureaucratic government in a soft society. Notice the administration just does things; it doesn't ask permission from Congress or the people, it just does them. If there are objections, then simply refuse to acknowledge them, forestall answering them, prolong the waiting until the anti- forces are gone or tired.

It's the way spoiled brats act with tolerant parents; and the brats generally win in a long confrontation. To Democrats, spend and spend; after all money grows on trees in China. To Democrats, open the flood gates of immigration; after all, there's plenty of American jobs, wealth and welfare to go around. To Democrats, let every one vote, felon, illegal legal, and visitor; everyone has right to vote regardless if they are friend or foe, regardless if they are taxed or not. To Democrats, this is the A'murka or Lyndon Baines Johnson, one of the most corrupt individuals to ever serve this country - but, A Great Man, by the way.
