In sum, enlisted military members are better educated, get higher test scores, and come from higher socioeconomic backgrounds than their similarly aged peers in society.

Selection effects have a lot to do with these differences. The military recruits young people who are particularly bright and fit. They tend to perform better."
Good find! See, this is another example that facts don't care about your feelings.

And on the flip side, a CO phys-ed teacher (older lady) *allegedly* assaulted a middle school kid for not standing for the pledge of allegiance (Bellamy Salute excluded, of course).

Quote:
Police are investigating the alleged attack by Karen Smith, a physical education teacher at Angevine Middle School in the Boulder Valley School District, according to the report. Lafayette police Cmdr. Brian Rosipajla indicated that officers responded to the school around noon on Thursday, following reports that a teacher was assaulting a child for refusing to stand for the pledge.
Another mind controlled 'Super-Patriot' - Post Revolutionary War school children from 1783 to 1892 (109 years), had no idea what a pledge of allegiance was. In 1892, Benjamin Harrison was losing the election to Cleveland, so in June he authorized the 'money grab' (by Daniel Sharp Ford) that was selling flags and the 'Youth's Companion' magazine to every school in the country, with Bellamy (a Socialist) and Upham - to commemorate Columbus at that, LOL. There's your "pledge"

Yeah, but that motherfucker should have been fired two months ago...

Better late than never, I guess.

To be honest Poly, you need to discuss this within the gestalt of the times. The push for US patriotism was largely due to the flooding of post Civil War America with hordes of bustout foreigners, as steamships made travel viable, and Europe flushed out their slums and malcontents in the aftermath of the German and Italian unification and assorted wars.

Kinda like today in the post 1964 immigration act, post Cold War world. Every bustout is headed for the land of the big PX. And the native population doesn't care for it.

Not to mention the fact that the Monty Burns style robber baron/chamber pot of commerce types are more than happy to shit all over the American people so they can pay lower wages with a more docile(read desperate) workforce.

What's old is new again!

And I'm sure it's simply a coincidence that some fuck named Salcido is happily shitting all over the American people who keep America, America.

There's a reason almost every real nation immediately deports foreign activists, regardless of whatever paperwork citizenship they may hold. S/F....Ken M

In many instances, the wheels of justice turn extremely slow...but, they turn nonetheless!
