    It's equal parts tragic and hilarious to watch history prove conservatives right over and over and over. Republican's warned against Social Security in the 1930's - history has proven them right. Republican's warned against Medicare & Medicaid in the 1960's - history has proven them right. Republican's warned against Obamacare in 2010 - history has proven them right. What is scary is that with each unconstitutional idiot liberal socialist bill, the Republican warning is being proven correct sooner and sooner. It took about 50 years to be proven right on Social Security. It took about 30 years to be proven correct on Medicare & Medicaid. And it took less than 2 years to be proven correct on Obamacare. And during all of this of course, conservatives warned against Common Core....

    Sound familiar?

    After spending several billion dollars attempting to reform public education over nearly 20 years, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is saying that, oops, the job is harder than its leaders had thought.

    Reading comprehension fail, retard.

    The Gates Foundation did NOT say Common Core is a mistake.

    They said they underestimated how difficult it would be to change the system over to Common Core.

    Read your own link, idiot.

    No federal dollars were spent developing Common Core.

    State participation in Common Core is voluntary, and all the red states, save one or two, VOLUNTARILY enacted it. At the state level. Before the federal government got involved.

    The federal government then added Common Core to the approved list of educational systems which receive federal funding.

    States have been receiving federal funding for education for decades. This is nothing new. And it doesn't mean the federal government had anything to do with the development of Common Core.

    We need to educate our kids for the jobs of tomorrow. Our educational system was not up to that task, and a radical overhaul was needed.

    The day's of growing up to work in the same factory as your daddy are long gone.

    They didn't say it was a "mistake" they said they "underestimated how difficult it would be". So what is that, if not a mistake jack-ass? The flawless execution of their plans? You continue to take stupidity to unprecedented levels... :eusa_doh:

    Hey libtard....they are not "our" kids. My children are my children. You neighbors children are your neighbor's children. No women would ever mate with you, so you have no children. Stop playing Melissa Harris-Perry.

    We'll decide for ourselves the educational needs of our children. If you ever adopt (and I doubt anyone would trust you with a child), you can decide for your own adopted children that they system is not up to task.

    You're appalling arrogance is matched only by your appalling ignorance.

    so this is what it IS ..

    a mistake is admitting failure

    admitting to underestimating difficulty can ONLY mean that .... difficulty was underestimated ... aka it was harder than expected


    however your stupidity is sorely "misunderestimated"

    So if you underestimated something - you have made a mistake. Go tell your manager that you underestimated the timeline on a project, or the budget on a project, or anything else. You know what he or she will do? They will discuss your mistake.

    It's astounding that words have no meaning to libtards. They will try to reword, redefine, or rewrite anything from the U.S. Constitution to an acknowledgment of a mistake by the Gates Foundation.
