One ignorant child is not an indictment of the whole system. However, it is my grandchild and it's enough to confirm that Whittle's assertion may be true. One of America's and mankind's greatest technological achievements, and she has been denied knowledge of it. Whittle claims that some her age are even denying the event. Why? Of course, Whittle – a “knuckle-dragging” conservative – goes for the progressive's jugular and blames it on their wish to denigrate our nation in the eyes of our children. Now, we know that progressives dominate our institutions of education. This is demonstrably true. As I discussed in an earlier posting, it is easy to surmise that the lessons that we learned in civics and American history are being replaced with ideological indoctrination.

If everyone is so well connected, I shouldn't have any problem finding out if other people have observed the same thing. Does your child know about the moon mission? Do you know?
