    There are many examples of those who have yet to master the English language on this message board. We call them "liberals".

    George Bush was talking to Saddam Hussein and they were discussing their dreams.

    Saddam said, 'I had a dream where I went to Washington and all the flags were for the global caliphate and everywhere there were banners praising Allah and the Prophet '.

    Bush said, 'I had a very similar dream. I went to Baghdad everywhere there were flags and banners'.

    Saddam said, 'What did they say?'.

    Bush said, 'I don't know. I dont read Hebrew'.

    That joke doesn't work. Saddam would not have cared if there were Hebrew flags and banners in Tehran. He hated the Iranians just as much as he did the Jews.

    Yea, I messed it up. The joke was originally Ahmadinejad. I forgot to change the city.

    As a teacher of very very many years' duration, let me tell you: much of what comes out of any "Dept of Ed" is complete and utter hogwash dreamed up by people who have not been in contact with actual students in years. It seems this might be no exception, since the "Dept of Ed" dreamed this up with no input from the local population. So typical.

    Teaching Russian was promoted during the Cold War.
