In short, we're making sure the world won't buy anything american.

It started with encryption export restrictions: This made sure that all relevant encryption would have a tendency to be developed outside america.Now we've made everything "Made in america" completely insecure. We export our skillsets, we destroy our own education.(FCAT, seriously?) America already only produces two things: Drugs, and Computer chips. This is an attack on half our production. America used to produce three things: Dollars(as a export), drugs, computer chips, and education. We've significantly eroded 2 of the 4 already.I suppose we'll find a way to legislate destruction of our medicine exports next. Perhaps we can backdoor them?

Yeah, we do that."Common core" is also destroying modern US education. (It essentially requires that every child be a theoretical mathematician rather than learning how to multiply as we've learned for a thousand years, ensuring failure for most.)We finally get somewhat reasonable health care just as everything else turns to crap.

I've been given the example that knowing how to solve a problem isn't enough: You need to be able to solve it in a few completely irrelevant ways that have absolutely no use later in mathematics. Some crap about number lines? Anyway..Yeah.
