All in the Family featured the curmudgeonly Archie Bunker. Archie was television’s most famous grouch, blunt, blustering, straightforward and untouched by the PC crowd. He was the archetype of the conservative male. Michael desprately tried to reeducate him, but he persisted in his breviloquence.

Looking back at the last 40 years, we realize: ARCHIE WAS RIGHT!


Blast from the Past

I saw this today. 

This School Was SHOCKED By What They Found Hidden Behind Chalkboards…Whoa!

If mentioning the good ole days makes you nostalgic, take 5 min and read the post.  Its a good one.

    Now THAT was fantastic. A wonderful look into educational history. Reminds me of that story a few years back regarding the Kansas test that kids graduating from 8th grade had to take.
    I want to say approx 1850 or so. I seriously doubt that 99% of what passes for teachers now could even pass that old test.

    While I find this story wonderfully nostalgic, it is also showcasing how appalling the left has deliberately permitted our educational system to get.

    There is a great story on I believe Breitbart today about the father who wrote a check to his child's school. He made the check out according to the way they are teaching the common core math. You need to find that story, it is entertainment gold.

  2. The handwriting is always interesting to look at. Back before computers, when I was just a lowly draftsman, there were a few old-school guys that could write almost as fast as the dot-matrix printers, and their lettering was amazing. Even after we moved off mylar/vellum and onto plotters, there were a few guys that could erase the plotter text, and hand letter in changes and it was really tough to tell what they wrote and what the plotter wrote.

      My 93 yo MIL has the most beautiful handwriting. Mine looks like drunken monkeys running amok. I actually print more legibly than cursive write.
      My father has nice handwriting, but his is so tiny you could fit two lines of it perfectly on one like of conventional notebook paper.

      Come to think of it, my son has never learned the art of cursive, he prints beautifully on everything. My daughter is a nurse and her writing has actually gone down hill thanks to her profession of having to be quick to notate the charts.

      Now that hospitals are changing over to computers, bad penmanship is not such a hassle. You just have to worry about the computer going down during a shift.

    Susan, you are too kind. It hasn't been a decline of neglect. It has been a designed destruction.

      That was kind of why I said deliberately. I agree that it has been totally by design on their part. Funny thing is, it is even hurting their own side, because they are not only dumbing down the thinkers on the right, they are also dumbing down the creativity of their own protesters.
      Instead of being listened to like back in the 60's, they are now pretty much mocked and laughed at for the ignorance of their views and how they are presented.

      The counter culture of today is so much more measurably stupid than in the 60's. The hippies back then still had the advantage of a decent education to draw on. But now, they can't even come up with intelligent protest slogans. Kind of like the valley girls in the movie Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Those girls were weapons grade vacuous.

      Today we have OWS and BLM and the equally pathetic New Black Panties (as I call them). Crazy Louis has been making noise again, but instead of getting listened to, he is being mocked and ridiculed.

      People are starting to push back all over the country over the stupidity of the left, and most of it is thanks in a huge part to Donald Trump.
