AP KNOWLEDGE=POWER

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 7:27 am

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the misty, still dark and cloudy island of Nantucket! Great to be with you on another very early Hyannis/Hyannis Port a.m.–the third day of October, 2014–top of the morning to you and yours, as we all wake up to yet another day on this little blue rock we all call ‘home’ for the moment.  Some of us not getting the memo that we are all in this together…some closer than you think.

Ah well, what are you going to do?  This just in from Reuters, it seems the good people at either the KOCH Brothers’ “Americans for Prosperity” or “The Heritage Foundation“, coupled with the nice folks down at “Families First” all got together recently in Dana Point, California, to discuss ways in which they could not only dumb down America even further than it is already–i.e. FOX “News”, cutting more funding (or eliminating the Department of Education altogether) for schools, and all of the right wing talk hate radio out there–poisoning minds before they have a chance to gain a foot hold in the enlightening world of KNOWLEDGE, hence POWER–but moreover, REWRITE history as we know it today.  You know, reshaping this nation’s cultural past, good or bad, by simply eliminating many important facts (from all AP history in Jefferson Country, Colorado books) from your child’s eyes ma’am…

Jefferson County, Colorado is that experiment.  Although, the people at “AP” who put the curriculum together, stated that if school districts take out said FACTS from text books, the ‘AP’ status of that course would not be legitimized by most college admissions offices…

The high schools in the area rather and the advanced placement courses they offer students, readying them for college courses to come.  Conservatives want to take out the truly inspirational free thinking message of real democracy hidden (in the text) and steeped deep within the words of a Madison, Jefferson, or Washington, our Founding Fathers.  These ‘new insane historians’ wish to abolish slavery as if it never happened in the South.  In short, these people want to whitewash our TRUE American experience, all of it, as if it never happened, thus opening the door for it to happen again.

If we have learned nothing from our ancestors, if we have not looked at the  depths within our own personal souls and reflected on said history of this nation and then dared ask ourselves, again, personally, “…would I have done that?  Would we have stood idly by and let the civil rights of other human beings be bashed and beaten without doing anything to stop it?  Would I?”…

Most never ask that question, and those people are the one’s writing this bogus history that is now being fed to a new generation, pity that...

Students rallied in that Denver community yesterday and all this past week and have protested loudly, chanting, “…our school, our voice, our school, our voice.” A sentiment I pray is visited by the people of this country on November 4th, the citizens of this country.  That they raise their collective voices too, voting out people who would love to rewrite history and bring this nation BACKWARDS, back to the mid-19th Century, where women could not vote and enlightenment was ‘not much tolerated round these here parts.’

Perhaps we may even go back to the days of King George III, who ruled his people with an iron fist, so much so that it caused some of the best and brightest of ‘those people’US–to rebel and form their own ‘more perfect union’, an advanced placement if you will of how mankind should live, so that history and the course it charts, never, EVER, repeats itself.  WW II, the ‘war to end all wars’ must not be revised in any way, shape or form, lest that horrible evil repeat itself on these shores, shores that are blessed, not cursed.

Have a great week end folks and steer clear of those wooden nickles thrown about by ‘ye ‘ole scallywag, Rupert, ‘arrrgghh matie’, Murdoch’s FOX & Friends… Side effects still include, but are not limited to, brain damage, blurred vision, trouble making decisions on one’s own (needing ‘approval’ from an ‘authority figure’, e.g. Bill O’Reilly), irritable bowels, cramps and the overwhelming notion that you are becoming the late, great Ethel Merman, “…you’ll be swell, you’ll be GREAT! Gonna have the whole world on a plate…  Startin’ here, startin’ now–honey, everything’s coming up roses!” PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
