It's a shame you missed all that.

It's sad to say, but it's not only young people.
Three people I work with, all over 50, are clueless about current events here and abroad.

They know nothing about what their grandchildren are being "taught" in school, never heard of CRT, don't know the meaning of the word 'woke', know nothing about the political corruption destroying this Country.
And I could go on and on.

The scary thing is, two of them vote. The third has never voted (maybe that's not such a bad thing). He says he's only interested in sports.

When a conservative co-worker and I try to explain what is being done to their world, and that they should vote, but only as informed voters, they turn and walk away.

Yes it is, thanks for your concern.

Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Give a man a welfare check, a forty ounce malt liquor, a crack pipe, an Obama phone, free health insurance. and some Air Jordan's and he votes Democrat for a lifetime.

Starting in about 2nd grade, when we got the bill at a resturaunt I would put a bunch of money in front of our daughters and let them get what the bill
required. Then let them pay on the way out.

As they got better at it they needed exact change, then the best possible
ways. Sometimes that might include getting rid of change.


Then we moved to figuring the change and letting them pay by themselves.
The girls are 4 years apart, so by the time it got old for the oldest, the
youngest wanted to start.

19 and 15, both have jobs handling money. It has been no trouble for them.


You gotta decide what you want your Kid's to know and teach it to them.
Mine get history lessons, ethics, social lessons.........
Like the change, it isn't sitting them at the table and hammering them.
It is practical, conversation or other interaction.
Dinner table conversations about issues guys at work face provide the opportunity to sneak in a lesson on money management, or ethics.

Only a dumbass isn't constantly learning, many underestimate the ability
of even young children to pick subtle tidbits out of conversation.


This exactly how the lefties steal your children's minds.
Get in there early, talk about right/wrong. Talk about the constitution,
How it was written, the world wars, how our nation provides a system
to allow hard work to pay off. How others dont.


Where we cling to our God and Guns.

My 7 year old just got about 90% of the answers correct but he's home schooled. How are 20 somethings that stupid. You'd almost have to work hard at being that ignorant.
