    Media mouths jumped on The Donald’s pledge:

    Trump signs GOP’s 2016 pledge to back nominee
    Posted By Jerome R. Corsi On 09/03/2015 @ 3:05 pm

    Trump vow of loyalty brings on potshots

    The few mouths I heard somehow interpret Trump’s pledge as a plus for Jeb Bush. They tell us the things Trump once supported in order to separate him from Tea Party conservatives, but they never mention the things that Bush does support that Tea Partiers abhor. When was the last time you heard a media mouth tie Bush to Common Core, and amnesty for illegal aliens?

    Bush speaking Spanish to an audience is the best negative of all. The Donald pointed out that English is the language in this country. He should have said everybody with a public voice should speak English whenever they address an audience. Nobody gives a rat’s ass if Bush speaks Spanish in private.

    As for Trump’s pledge. Should the media choice get the nomination, The Donald can easily damn him with faint praise by calling him an honorable man at conservative’s funeral:

    I love it. I think he did it just to give media mouths something else to talk about:

    Though Trump signed the pledge on Sept. 3, the document appeared to show the date, “August 3/15.”​

    If this is killing Jeb Bush, it should bury John Kasich —— both big supporters of Common Core:

    In some places, the fight against Common Core has seen bipartisan support. Teachers' unions oppose using the Common Core tests to evaluate teachers. Some conservatives say states were pressured by the federal government to adopt Common Core.

    What is so bad about Common Core? That is an honest question. I do not know enough about Common Core to have an informed opinion on it. Why are conservatives so upset about it?

    So Trump signed a pledge he wouldn't run as an independent. So what?

    Trump's word isn't worth shit anyway.

    Trump again refuses to rule out independent run for president

    It is a set of standards on how math and english should be taught. People think the standards are too rigid and counter intuitive. Topics are introduced too early and are over complicated.
    there are also tests which test adherence to the standards rather than getting the correct answers.
    Parents think the methods are insane and confusing. Tests are done way too early.

    What is the national language of the USA? None.

    Although, English is generally accepted as the norm. Google it sometime, you may be surprised.
