    What do you think about Donald J. Trump's plan to change Obama's criticized Core Common Standards education system to a new 'Freedom Core' system that emphasizes Judeo-Christian American Values?
    Trump told an enthusiastic crowd at a New Jersey rally that "this was only the beginning" and that we needed to "look at ways to remove Muslim influence from our country."

    Trump said he has been working with Texas and Mississippi educators with a system that would teach children American values and discourage them from becoming radicalized by groups such as ISIS and Juggalos For Allah.

    "I mean, what do we need these Arabic numbers for?,Trump told supporters, "The Founding Fathers didn’t need them when they invented America — which was great, by the way, and we’re gonna make it great again.I mean we need numbers.I use numbers everyday.Why can't we just call them Freedom Numbers.I like that.Sounds better doesn't it?"

    Fox News contacted famed Mathematician and Physicist Freemen Dyson about the feasibility of the Trump proposal.Dyson blinked,stared,and had no comment.

    The Common Core State Standards Initiative is an educational initiative in the United States that details what K–12 students should know in English language arts and mathematics at the end of each grade.Trump claims it has been unduly influenced by Muslim Sharia Law.

    "All that algebra stuff that the Muslims invented",Trump went on, "I was forced to learn that in school, by the way, I don’t know if you were too, but that’s total Shakira Law if I ever saw it, and that’s how they brainwash kids to join ISIS. What’s algebra gonna do to make America great again? I can find a much more American way to do math.It will be great."

    In the fallout of CNN's Republican debate in Las Vegas, Trump could not resist the chance to needle Jeb Bush.

    "Look at Jeb's campaign",Trump continued,"He has lots of money.He has a lot of analysts that use algebra.His campaign is a disaster.Algebra hasn't helped Jeb.He's dumb as a rock."

    Bush has recently been more willing to talk about Trump, projecting himself as a serious alternative to the GOP front-runner while calling the real estate mogul a "bully" who needs to be confronted. On Thursday, Bush told Fox News Megyn Kelly that the approval Trump received from Vladimir Putin this week was a nod that he himself would not have wanted to receive.

    "Donald is mad.",Bush said,"He's mad I beat him in the debate and that he failed Algebra.It's just that simple."

    Just use Roman numerals because it's easier to do math...

    But 1234567890 are not really Arabic numerals, they are a modified form, the ones in Arabic look a little different.

    I guess it'll be an interesting day when they ban computing trajectories in the military or navigation on ships...

    What we learned at school was ISIS, indeed but it hat little to do with math.

    We learned about the short circuit of tolerance.
    So we learned that rape is bad but rape by foreigners does not happen, anyway.

    Getting rid of Arabic Numerals is ridiculous and somehow I don't think he'll actually do anything that stupid. Common core though? We can do better than that trash. There needs to be less of a focus on mathematics and science and a higher focus on basic life management, economy, and job skills. The vast majority of high school graduates are going to learn a trade or go into minimum wage jobs as they datadump everything they learned in school, especially in an environment where college attendance is becoming notoriously less of a financially feasible option.

    The company I worked for in the early 2000's had a problem with France for whatever the reason was back then and they renamed the French Fries in the cafeteria to 'freedom fries'.

    I am so sick of this 8 year old mentality of viewing the world by these people. Jesus fucking Christ what is wrong with these people? Their brains are in a state of perpetual arrested development. Republicans how in hell did you get to this place? Bush Jr., Palin, Trump. These people should be in an institution yet you are putting them forth as candidates to hold office.

    There IS a divide in America. Between the sane and the insane, between the average human and the knuckle-draggers of the neo-con Tea Party cluster fuck.

    I don't associate with Republicans so I can't speak for them, but if you think it's as simple as black and white "Democrats are smart, Republicans are dumb" you're part of the problem that infests this rotten country.

    It is a conservative trait to see something and project the 'either/or' paradigm on it.

    Let's start with Republicans nominating one human being that doesn't have the mentality of an 8 year old who thinks the world is 5,000 years old. Let's start with one, them build from there. The Republican party has been going the other way for two decades.

    Your views seem to be entirely skewered by typical American mainstream politics. You're projecting the image of bible thumping loud mouth Republicans onto all conservatives. I can assure you that profile does not represent the whole, least of all the most educated, of the right wing.
