If you are trying to make political or socioeconomic sense here, you will fail.
You're probably going to hate this. Sense of this move will only make sense in terms of Old Testament Scripture.
Ezekiel 38 and 39 describes a future time in which Russia and a coalition of nations, now Muslim countries, will, en masse, move to invade Israel. That entire coalition will be destroyed in a Supernatural occurrence. That entire coalition will be lead by the national leader (called Gog) pf Russia.
. . . [,] I have never used it since leaving school.
I'm willing you guess you and everyone else in America has benefited from Algebra.
Algebra is used daily, sometimes moment-to-moment by the physicians who care for you and your family, the pharmacists who fill your prescriptions, the architects and engineers who design the bridges you driver across, the buildings and elevators you enter, the engineers who design the automobiles you drive, the designers of the electronics you use, including your computer and phone, every day, the publications you read, the designer of the toilet bowls you sit on (quite possibly HUGE toilet bowls because they know that some people can be or have large . . . what you are or what you have). Algebra is the basis for the dreams of your children and grandchildren. Anyone who has ever launched a rocket on Independence Day and began the dream of sending stuff off into outer space, has used algebra extensively along the way. I could go on and on.
So, simply the shortsightedness and/or lack of vision and wisdom of some in our society, should not punish others in our society who have who visions greater than walking around all day Saturday in their underwear, adding only belches or other disgusting habits to their repertoire during the day.
Making America great again depends on more than sloganeering and excitement. It requires those who can visualize and dream of things that require mathematics--the beginning of which is algebra.
Aw, c’mon folks. It can’t be ALL bad. Rick Steves is all PA-ROUD of Sweden with their Socialistic high taxes, free medical care, free college educations that costs Swedish students about $19k a year in student fees,and all the rest of that good Bernie stuff. (Yes, this is satire.)
Psychiatry professors fraudsters. Might as well be a bunch of astrologers. Our universities are damned poor at keeping the phonies out.
I started out in life with a thought to major in psychology with, perhaps at the back of my mind, another thought to go to medical school and practice psychiatry.
By the middle of my Junior undergraduate year, I was so disgusted with psychology that I changed majors.
What I learned is that psychology--and its medical application of psychiatry--is that it's all smoke and mirrors. You can make it, like philosophy, mean anything you want. Psychology and psychiatry are not stable disciplines. While I met some great psychiatrists in my life of working in the consumer health/governmental relations field, so many of them, and psychologists, are as bonkers as some of their patients are.
If these psychiatrists are planning on their discipline to lend them credibility and credentials in their pursuit of the President's job, then I predict their cause will become unraveled in due time.
What a bunch of wobbly wildebeests these guys are.
It IS a matter of credibility. It may not be against the law or policy, but we would condemn the same series of events if the Clintons or Barack the Pretender or Schumer, or any other of the leftist beasts did it.
