what makes the deficiencies in vocabulary so bad is how many people make excuses for them by saying and i quote "that's the way young people talk nowadays"
I so agree with you gacpl! That statement is so true! Kids dumb their selves down by taking "slang"....
Good points. I'm not sure what "progressive social policy" is, but I don't like the sound of it. I suspect that topic - if included in a school's curriculum - would need to be explained.
The term "progressive social policy" simply scares me without any explanation.
We have failed I think to give our children the foundation needed for learning because they are allowed to talk lazy language which is what gacpl has pointed out above.
Dr. Carson said int the national prayer day address. "We have dumbed down our society".
Perhaps some of our liberal counterparts can explain "progressive social policy".
i think it might lead to this, but on a serious note. some scientist and sociologist think we are really heading this way.
@TOT: First go get the movie the Da Vinci Code. Watch it twice at regular speed. Then, watch the movie backwards at slow speed. Have paper and pencil ready. Write down every word you see flashed before your eyes. Then TOT put the piece of paper that you have written the words on and fold it into a triangle and place underneath your pillow.
Go and get your radio. Set the dial to 66.6 FM, turn it off and place the radio near your head.
Try to go to sleep. Relax and drift away until you automatically hit REM sleep. While in this state ALL WILL BE REVEALED TO YOU. Only you TOT will know for sure what you heard from the radio.
Wait 24 hours. Then you will know what to do.
