Down with american education

I was lied to all throughout my public education(indoctrination) experience.
I started public school in 1970. I was taught outright lies, useless information and disinformation. I was not educated I was brainwashed and confused.
I was forced to learn completely useless information like sentence diagramming. I had to learn what a predicate nominative and a prepositional phrase was along with articles and possessive pronouns. I didn't give a darn then and don't now. And you know what? I have never needed that useless information at any time in my life. I remember arguing with my teacher about how useless that all was and I was right. I knew it then and I have proved it now.
Another example of useless info I was forced to learn was the 3 years of algebra forced into my head. 3 years learning something I knew I was never going to use and didn't need to clutter my head with. I argued with all my teachers over the time mis-spent on learning something so esoteric and obviously useless. And you know what I was right again. I never used it or needed it since I learned it and have pretty much forgot it. And if I ever do need that info I will go to the net. I got all A's and B's in too so it wasn't like I couldn't get it. I just knew it was useless to me.
Three years I could have spent learning something of real value and import, like the philosophies and history our founding fathers knew and which formed the basis of our constitution. I learned nothing at all about that.
Then we get to the lies I was fed and thought were true. Like the lies about the scumbag lincoln who was the worst president this country ever had. Old "honest abe" was nothing of the kind. He was a power-hungry, greedy, evil dictator who did more to destroy the constitution than any other president.
He destroyed the sovereignty of the states by force and murdered hundreds of thousands of americans in the process. This country has never recovered from the damage he inflicted in his lust for power.
What you weren't taught about lincoln in school
Pretty much all the history I was taught was incorrect, biased, skewed or flat out lies. The emphasis was on memorizing dates, names and events and little to nothing was taught me about the reason, cause or import of that information. Memorizing is not learning. Spitting out a bunch of useless facts doesn't make you an educated person. I memorized so much useless garbage I had little time to even think. I used to know all the state capitols and that has proven to be very useful in my adult life. Not!
This is pretty simple but remember the story about George Washington and the cherry tree he chopped down? Never happened. It was invented long after he died by a writer. Of course that is no fault of George Washington who was definitely one of this countries greatest presidents and patriots but it is indicative of the crappy "education" our kids are forced to endure.
And if honest economics were taught instead of algebra to every kid in the country do you think we would be in the dire financial straits we are in now? If we were taught about the evils and unfairness of fractional reserve banking and fiat money from the time we could read do you think the banks and the government would be ripping us off for tens of trillions of dollars? If we were taught the evils of war instead of glorifying it would we be always fighting wars which do nothing to make us safer but enrich the coffers of greedy, evil people to the tune of hundreds of billions of dollars, resulting in the murder and suffering of tens of millions? Not likely.
Keep us ignorant and controllable. Fill our heads with crap so we can't even think logically. Teach us lies as truth so we can be exploited and used. That is the public education system.
Ever hear the term Austrian economics EVER during your public brainwashing/indoctrination? Even once?
Well guess what? Followers of Austrian economic theory predicted exactly what is going on all around you every step of the way. They are the only school of economic thought who predicted the financial collapse we are undergoing and they were ignored, and marginalized and derided. And if you want to know what is coming next you better stop listening to the liars who get the most facetime and look up Austrian economics if you want to know what you can do to protect yourself and your family from what is coming. Go here and here for starters.

Such optimism and bliss! Is there a solution and better idea in the back of that scowl? (What creative ideas do you have for saving America?). How do you feel about the new dollar coin that was put out for our use? (not using the words: In God We Trust). What classes should be taught in the schools today? I'm ready to hear your advice...

For one I am homeschooling my kids. They aren't learning the garbage I was taught. I taught them to read and now they read better than a lot of adults I know.
I don't think the school system is reformable. The bureaucracy is to big and entrenched. They fight all real change. Failure is institutionalized. My solution was to divorce my children from a failed system. I know that won't work for everyone but it is becoming the solution for more and more families.
The only sound, honest money is gold and silver. I have converted most of my assets into them. The dollar will fail completely and has already lost 96% of its value since 1913. It will lose the rest soon through increased inflation and possibly hyperinflation.
Reading should be taught using the McGuffey readers. They taught americans to read for 130 years and taught honesty, integrity, responsibility and morality at the same time. All those are currently missing from the current system and the sight method or whole word method is a proven failure.
Austrian economics should be taught starting in first grade along with the constitution and how and why it came into existence.
Those should be the core of our education.
Also basic math with an emphasis on understanding debt, borrowing and interest. Also writing, logic, science, true history and correct nutrition based on using healthy fresh natural food as the basis of good health and as a cure for disease.
I could go on and on about why these are more valuable than the crap our kids our learning but just look around and you will see I am right.

I agree that homeschooling can be a better method than public schools. I also think that you'd draw a bigger crowd of believers, with the positive parts of a new change. One could focus on better tests scores of homeschooling-than the evils of the public education system? There's a huge crowd of folks who LOVE to educate their own. That could be a follow-up for the Right Reason:) Parents look for words of hope and greater possibilities-rarely do they listen to rants and paranoia.

*How to do you buy groceries and pay bills with gold & silver? Do you sustain your family with your own garden and resources? Your very right to preach better nutrition and health. Is it affordable to live off the land?

I definitely tend to rant but I don't know about paranoia. I tend to be pretty cynical because I don't see a lot of good out there. I see a lot of ignorance, corruption, fraud and dishonesty. I believe all those things are institutionalized to a large extent and the state-run indoctrination system( mislabed as public education is at the heart of the problem.
No schooling is better than that imho.
As for gold and silver I use them to store my wealth at this point. I am self-employed and I earn dollars and spend dollars.
I am stocking up on food and supplies in advance of the shortages and disruptions I think are coming. I am just getting into gardening and am going to build a whole bunch of "square foot gardens" in my backyard in time for the start of the fall growing season here. My kids will each build, plant and maintain their own sfg also. part of the homeschooling process.
I don't have enough land to live off the land at this point but down the round I am leaning towards that goal.
