    And that is where you started off wrong, and what I disproved in my first post. Most democrats are white. Blacks make up about 1/4 of those who identify as democrat. So trying to suggest blacks are bringing the education level down fails. To further illustrate the point: Asian Americans tend to be better educated than average, and they also tend to vote democratic. See the problem with your premise?

    I was responding to the OP statement that liberals are dumbing down the country. Out of no where you make a statement as if blacks are the reason why we are behind. I follow that statement with facts and stats showing that statistically we are not the overall reason. There is a lot more to it. (Please refer back to my last post). If we are the reason, then why is West Virginia the least educated state with only 3% of their population being black?

    Again this is not a race topic. I don't understand why you continue to make it so.

    The reply back was something like.. You're part of the conspiracy to make Republicans lose by making the polls look bad. You're banned! After the election, I emailed the editor to get reinstated.. I was ignored.

    Wow just because you had a intelligent opinion.

    Because black almost exclusively vote Democrat, and are part of an educationally disadvantaged group by some accounts. So why shouldn't this play into the question of how the educated vote for Obama. Of course you could have read the thread instead of making me re-explain it to you.

    Not gonna speak on Palin and Bachmann but Newt Gringrich is quite a smart individual. Don't let the partisanship blind you.

    Not coincidentally, liberals now outnumber conservatives and are winning more and more elections without any intellectual merit to their platform whatsoever. Campaign strategies have to be designed at a third-grade level these days.

    Dark, scary days ahead with this worthless, brainless voting bloc running things.
    Actually, the problem of education is a bipartisan one. Both parties continue to ignore actual research on effective education policies and continue to push ineffective education policies that are supported by many of their donors. Those donors tend to be business people and corporations who have MUCH more money than academics, teachers and others who know what to actually do to improve our system.

    Re: US adults are dumber than the average human

    From the article:
    This test could suggest students leaving high school without certain basic skills aren’t obtaining them later on the job or in an education program.
    What, they think that if you don't obtain it in your first 18 years of life you'll just wander across it some other way? I thought this was common sense.

    No, if you struggle in school, that won't improve unless you really push yourself.

    On a much broader note - I don't imagine that Finland and Canada, etc are representative of 'the average human' - There are over 140 countries in the world. That only constitutes a sliver of the world population. That is 'the educated, 1st world portion of the world' - and at that, yet again, only a part.
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.
