    Mud. . . . . is a Many Splendored Thing . . .

    I said:
    Most of what non-USA persons THINK they know about the USA is wrong or wildly distorted.
    .
    I must sadly add :
    A great deal of what US citizens think they know about the USA is wrong or wildly distorted.

    Quill is a bit off. Adams did predict in a letter to his wife, that fireworks would be used to celebrate the Second of July (when the Declaration of Independence was actually signed).
    .
    But as far as I know, he was not responsible for the actual custom.
    .
    Until much later, when his correspondence was published, it is likely that no one but Abigail knew of his prediction.

    .
    They are victims of the commercial US media that feeds on things that are bizarre and worrisome, of wildly atypical Hollywoodizations, of anti-US propaganda (from both rightist and leftist regimes), of oversimplifications based on pure ignorance, of misleading “facts and statistics” put out by US lobbies and political think-tanks for their financial masters, of the efforts of much of the state-sponsored world media to discredit the US in order to decease its influence on local populations, etc.

    More stupid stereotyping. The average Australian follows sports and beer perhaps more than in the USA.
    .
    One odd fact, although most in the US know little of Australia, they tend to know more about it than Canada.
    .
    US citizen ignorance of Canada is amazing given the propinquity.

    The fruit of a liberal agenda in our schools.

    Hardly. Who sets what agenda?
    .
    Look at the neo-Confederate propaganda that is in nationwide texts in order to sell in the South. That’s crude commercialism.
    .
    However the worst personal results come from homeschooling.
    . By far.
    .
    Most of that tends to the conservative side, maybe not all.
    .
    But marginal teachers like Mr. Fogarty can do a lot of damage. Waste precious time.
    .
    I had good teachers and poor teachers. I don’t recall anything like a ‘liberal agenda’ any place. The best were in science and math, the poorest and drabbest were in ‘social studies.’ Stick in the mud types, hardly ‘flaming liberals’ or anything else.

    Anyone actually doing this to their dad would have to be terminally stupid — or patricidal.

    Is there ANYONE here who could not have written out the end of this arc on Tuesday as well (or better) than this?
    .
    Who is writing this now?
    It’s getting to be a waste of time looking here.

    Are we now to waste the next couple weeks on back pain and the mud run?
    .
    Showing Frank as out of touch with reality is not needed. He is being Guntherized.
