Points made --and taken. Gentlemen, let us please move on now. There are bigger fish to fry.
Like the Fabian socialist usurper in the White House and the specter of Islamic tyranny!
While the debate goes on about spelling and education the anti-American forces are raising hell all over our country. Unfortunately, I was taught to "sight read" and never could get english gammar in my head. But more important things are "afoot" today .. here's an article written by Winston Churchill in the late 1890's .. WHERE IS OUR NEXT WINSTON???????? http://girlsjustwannahaveguns.com/2013/07/winston-churchill-on-islam/
Wayne, you too? I also was taught using "sight read," a very progressive concept back when. While my mother helped me overcome some of it, I still keep a dictionary handy and use a spell checker, not always successfully. Perhaps that's why I emphasize education so much. Also, Jefferson once wrote, "If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be."
Of the leaders against Hitler in WWII, Churchill was by far the greatest. Had it not been for him inspiring the British to hold on until America got involved the outcome of the war might have been very different. As you ask, where is our next Winston? We could also use a few Thomas Paines and Paul Reveres.
