For example, President Obama seems to finally be making good on his promised push for more emphasis on science, technology, engineering, and math. In a country as diverse and large as ours, it is a bit unrealistic to think that America would rate #1 in STEM, butseriously21st?
So the President is drumming up support to re-emphasize STEM in a multilateral hit: schools, television, labs, and more. And heres the best part: the money is coming from private sources.
Thats great for two reasons: one, it aint the taxpayers who need to cough up the $260 million bucks for this, and two, it keeps any progressivist revisionist science out of the kidss heads. The private donations are from sources diverse enough to provide a good, balanced approach to learning different topics, not just alegebra and Microsoft Excel.
The contrast here is so shocking that the Czar is tempted to ask why we cant do this more across the board, but he is really trying to leave criticism out of this.
Here is a sobering thought, too, from our President: in South Korea, he found a hunger for knowledge, an insistence on excellence, a reverence for science and math and technology and learning…That used to be what we were about. True enough.
Божію Поспѣшествующею Милостію Мы, Дима Грозный Императоръ и Самодержецъ Всероссiйскiй, цѣсарь Московскiй. The Czar was born in the steppes of Russia in 1267, and was cheated out of total control of all Russia upon the death of Boris Mikhailovich, who replaced Alexander Yaroslav Nevsky in 1263. However, in 1283, our Czar was passed over due to a clerical error and the rule of all Russia went to his second cousin Daniil (Даниил Александрович), whom Czar still resents. As a half-hearted apology, the Czar was awarded control over Muscovy, inconveniently located 5,000 miles away just outside Chicago. He now spends his time seething about this and writing about other stuff that bothers him.
