Also about education and schools+4We always hear about a need for new taxes to help our schools. I'm not buying it. One of the big pushes for legalization of marijuana here in Colorado was that the money would be used for education. Last year, Colorado collected over 260 million in marijuana taxes. Not one penny went to teachers or students. Now they want to increase property taxes and other taxes, to support our schools, once again. Where the hell is the money going and why aren't corrupt politicians being held accountable?
Also about higher education+91It's weird how you get to go to basic school for free (well, not FREE, it goes into the cities taxes) but if you want an even higher education and a better job, you have to pay tens of thousands of dollars, amirite?
Also about Life+24Women live an average of 7 years longer than men. Women will also spend an average of 7 years in their lifetime menstruating. Sort of like a rebate for for days spent in misery, amirite?
Also about educational+838Our education system is less about learning than it is about superficially showing that we've learned something. Standardized tests are proof of this. You get shoved a whole textbook of factoids,and then you regurgitate it all in a three hour test at the end of the year. Rarely are we taught the significance and purpose of what we learn; we learn just to show that we've learned. Our educational system goes for the cheap-shot quicky: here's a fact. Memorize it. Repeat it. This is education. amirite?
Also about tomorrow+334If murder was made legal tomorrow, you still wouldn't just go kill anybody tomorrow... It would take you at least a week to get the necessary resources to take out everybody on your list, amirite?
Also about higher education+430America is the land of the free, except when it comes to their history of slavery, health care and higher education, amirite?
Also about education and schools-192People who don't flush the toilet in your school are probably trying to lower all the water bills schools have to pay so the school would not run out of funds so all of us may learn and get a good education, I salute these wonderful human beings.. amirite?
Also about Life+21We're all just insignificant specs of dust in the scale of the universe and nothing really matters, amirite?
