Posted on 05/19/2014 3:24:28 PM PDT by MNDude
A friend sent me this link to video. This link is to a youtube video of FoxNews story on some scholars debating Common Core, and from his description, he said the individuals made some VERY VERY interesting comments regarding the issue.
The sound on my computer is not working however, so I am not able to understand what they are saying. Can someone please watch a little to fill me in on the key points of the debate?
one guy said,”MNDude needs new computer”
Dude, you’re getting a Dell?
I watched it, and all I can say is....WTF??!!?
Those girls seemed very intelligent and rational in the interview, but the “debate” was ridiculous. Bet they’ll become lawyers and in less than 10 years this will be what goes on in many court rooms. God help us then.
An example of racist progressives showcasing dumbed down blacks and rewarding them for failure.
Great example of a “liberal” education.
Are we being punked?
Watched a seconds of the debate...
Thats 30 seconds I will never get back...
Their coach should be SLAPPED.... HARD..
And the judges cavity checked..

Who cares? Just steal the lumber from your rich neighbor’s property. He won’t have a gun to stop you, and the resident says it’s OK anyway cuz it’s FAIR......your neighbor has more than you do.
