Apparently the janitors who DO IT FOR FREE don't like Common Core threads. Let's start a new one up since they're faggots.
After you're done raging about the Second Amendment, take a look at the Third.
Fuck it, Mexibro. After you're done building the wall, we can get along with each other and argue over the kikes fucking with my rights. Here comes a dump.
PROOF that Common Core was made because niggers and spics.
I understand whitewashing the history of the US. That's what happened when I went to school, but blatantly lying about what certain words mean is weak. I would be so scared to have a kid, would need to homeschooling so they don't come out as fuckin idiots
The mods here are the most pathetic pieces of garbage ever. They literally dox themselves so they can get a title that makes them feel useful in their pathetic lives.
No wonder why most of this site leaves.
I have never seen common core subtraction before, but it looks
>X - Y
>Take Y and add number to bring it to the next 5
>Then add 5's until you get within 5 of X
>Then add difference to get to X and add all those numbers you used in between
So much simpler than memorizing 1 digit subtraction tables and applying it to each digit in the problem :^)
What the fuck? This whole goddamn thread pisses me off. We need Trump NOW.
The only possible reason they aren't putting in the Constitution verbatim is that they are cultural marxist jews.
After staring at it I think I got it finally. They're finding the difference by starting with the smaller number 12 and adding numbers to that in increments until it's the larger 32. The difference is the increments added together to 20.
I just don't know what the point of it was.
OY VEY STOP THAT SHIT GOYIM
Although this is from some private college, not common core bullshit.
My state has a real problem with RINO's. I probably voted for those faggots last election. Typical brainwashed """youth""".
Generations of kids will be ruined. The battle is unwinable. Fall back. The game is over. Assimilate. It's all over. Fuck everything.
>allow liberals to completely take over education
>send your kids to be indoctrinated by them for twelve years
>be completely shocked by the results
>how can this not be a tool used to debilitate white generations
That's exactly its point. Decades of trying to get blacks to learn like normal people, to get their parents to be parents, to instill a value of education in them have failed. They are worse than ever.
The solution, then is, not to consider them a lost cause but to instead ruin future generations by dragging everyone else (whites, Asians, etc.) down to their level. Like was pointed out in this thread, Common Core was designed explicitly to help "end white privilege" in education.
Imagine if you're eating a nice steak while some crackhead is whatever he scavenges from the garbage. Someone tries to teach him money management, how to shop for food properly, but he still keeps eating that garbage food. So they decide "fuck it", take your steak and declare everyone, you and the crackhead, are eating gas station hot dogs. That's basically what this is.
>oawwwwwl about the money
>mfw the jewess is a teacher and doesn't like it
>mfw the black guy is a teacher and doesn't like it
>mfw it's the anglo cunt who's pushing common core
You'll niggers are all retarted. I used to work as a math tutor at a third party tutoring business.
The purpose of common core math is to increase fluency with numbers and to attempt to drive home an actual intuitive understanding of numbers, as opposed to the rote memorization of operations. The multistep drawn out addition process taught by common core is meant to increase MENTAL calculation abilities. It is a way of performing operations mentally instead of needing paper or calculator. I was a strong math student in school, and I did it this way naturally, because it's efficient and accurate. These bad examples have been cherry picked and are just examples of poor implementation of a strong method.
The column methods of addition and subtraction are still taught, just after some basic familiarity and intuition can be built up around the operations.
People who resist this method are generally intimidated by math and had trouble with it in high school. Closed minded ignorance is what it boils down to.
B. Sc. in Applied Math here. I'm calling your bullshit. Tell me how close minded ignorant and intimidated by math I am.
James O'Keefe is BTFO common core
I want to see this shit burn like ACORN
>the purpose of math is not to become fluent with numbers
The purpose of common core math is to increase fluency with numbers and to attempt to drive home an actual intuitive understanding of numbers, as opposed to the rote memorization of operations. The multistep drawn out addition process taught by common core is meant to increase MENTAL calculation abilities.
Alright then why do Asians do it the old way and they are so successful in math?
Tell me why these addition methods are bad. I saw numerous students increase their math skills because of it. Imagine having conversations about numbers with fourth graders. Nice car taste btw
Where did I say that?
>Alright then why do Asians do it the old way and they are so successful in math?
Intuitive understanding can follow rote memorization of the "old" methods due to the familiarity of the process and the repetitions and practice done. It's easier to understand these concepts as an adult in many cases. I'm arguing that the common core methods are trying to teach the "short cuts" that many stronger students find on their own, to all the students. It's asking kids to be more thoughtful about their math in the K-12 levels, which is an excellent objective. What do these numbers really mean, and what do they allow me to do?
I'm not letting shit like this happen to my children. I will be looking over every worksheet, test, and quiz my child has to do. I may even plant something on him to record what the teacher says. I will not let my son or daughter be brainwashed by the schools.
>Where did I say that?
>The purpose of common core math is to increase fluency with numbers
>The purpose of...math...is to increase fluency with numbers
Good point, guess I mistook your stance on Common Core.
>The multistep drawn out addition process taught by common core is meant to increase MENTAL calculation abilities.
I mean, we never learned mental math in school before Common Core so I guess it's good.
You are weak as shit. Math is independent politics. 2+2 = 4 always.
A relaxation of standards is not the same as a different approach to teaching number sense. I can accept that parts of common core may be bad, but it really depends on what you call common core. Making it easier for Jamal to graduate be eliminating ALG2 or trig isn't really the same as approaching the teaching of basic number operations differently in elementary school. High school standards are heavily reliant on politics.
HOW THE FUCK CAN THEY JUST CHANGE THE CONSTITUTION ????????????????
believe me, i understand what youre getting at. understanding of math is different then memorization.
however, what is required is thoughtful explanation of the concepts involved, not a different method of doing them.
theres a difference between using analogous examples to explain something & using completely unrelated methods
They aren't, obviously.
The purpose of this propaganda is to show the children liberal viewpoints and the liberal viewpoints only.
There you have it, democrats for life because it is engrained in their minds.
Because it is being pushed on them so young, they will feel a deep connection to that viewpoint when they are older and it will be very difficult to change their views.
I guess the idea is to try to teach children the "tricks" behind doing some math so they can perform better on standardized tests. The side effect is, of course, the kids would could figure these tricks out don't get to on their own and never develop critical thinking abilities. But who cares about them. The only thing state beaucrats care about is covering their ass. Which is the only reason why this is a thing.
1st - Pretty accurate. I'm okay with this
2nd - This one will piss off gunfags, but the amendment IS about maintaining state militias, it says as much in the amendment.
3rd - They fucked it up. You're not allowed to quarter soldiers in homes during war time either.
4th - They left out some important stuff about warrants having to specify what specifically they're searching for.
I'll stop here
I hope they show the original text somewhere in there.
Actual teacher who has to deal with this bullshit every day here.
Ask me anything about common core and I'll give you my take.
i did gcse, former colonial vassle-fag, what the fuck is this?
>as we all know, niggers are fucking retarded
>so I made the lessons fucking retarded so niggers could keep up and white kids would be marked off for taking the obvious shortcuts to the correct answer that we used to teach and their parents will tell them to do because they're educated white people
>2nd - This one will piss off gunfags, but the amendment IS about maintaining state militias, it says as much in the amendment.
tfw i'm more American than this faggot with an American flag
Interesting comma placement then isn't it? You people are such fucking idiots. The founders believed in this stuff so much they didn't even think it was necessary to put in the Constitution, but thank god they did. Imagine the world we would live in with liberals and no Bill of Rights dear god. Thomas Jefferson even suggested citizen's should own fucking cannons. Clearly they were not for any sort of gun regulation in ANY way.
>Should we support or hate common core?
If Common Core lived up to the basic theory, I'd support it. The implementation in practice is terrible for reasons I could go on all day about.
>do parents get mad? does it make sense to you?
Parents do express their frustrations with Common Core regularly, especially since many cannot help their own children do their homework properly anymore. However, this is rarely directed at teachers themselves, as parents usually recognize that it's not the teachers' choice.
>hurr muh retarded infographic means we can just ignore the part that explicitly says the 2nd amendment is for ensuring the existence of militias to maintain the security of the state
They wrote this fucking thing when they just barely scraped out independence from the British and still had to deal with the native americans. They needed militias to bolster the ranks of American military power.
Now that the security of America is ensured by the most powerful military force in the history of the world, we don't need militias.
Now don't you have a paki bull to take care of. Someone's gotta lick your wife's juices off his cock.
>So much simpler than memorizing 1 digit subtraction tables and applying it to each digit in the problem :^)
But then the students don't learn how the math actually works. If they work it out in this new and better way, then they can actually learn how to do the math itself. It's so much better for their mental development. The easy way is never the best way.
>Dude, form your own opinions. Look over information and decide for yourself
Everyone says this, but very few people actually bother to do it.
Part of it is that it's hard to really have a feel for what Common Core entails until you see it firsthand, typically either by working in education or having a child go through it, where you get to see the textbooks, the lessons, etc. Even then you probably will never look at a Lesson Plan at all (let alone a Common Core Era plan) or bother to learn the obligations to the standards to which teachers are held (which strongly reshape curriculum and how much time you have to teach a given concept)
The reason (I have) against common core is the sole idea of it. The idea that there is a universal educational system teaching students the exact same thing everywhere.
I'll try to simplify it so even a burger like you can understand. Imagine there's a million different restaurants trying to make the best burger possible. They all start off with their own recipes. A lot of them even look the same. But over time, people will try to find out which is the best tasting burger. The restaurant with the best tasting burger will succeed. While the restaurants with the worst tasting burgers fail. But if you are the restaurant with the worst tasting burger, you'll try your best to adapt and be like the restaurant with the best tasting burger.
Change burger to education system and restaurant with school. So my proposition to you is that there could be an educational system that's better than common core. But we will never know that because common core is universally applied to every school.
So what you're suggesting is that the founding fathers wanted to set up a state controlled militia to counter the power from the state and prevent corruption? Simply amazing. 18th century well-regulated = well-equipped
These are some mental tricks that some people use that assist with calculation. I do them, many people do them.
But generally, calculation doesn't matter. That's what calculators are for. What matters when calculating is that you get the answer in the least amount of time. It's best to have a simple method.
Higher level math does not mean successively harder and harder levels of mental calculation. It involves logic, and lots of abstract symbols. I have a BS in Physics and I still count on my fingers
>being this asspained by the truth
>A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.
There is actually no way to misinterpret that without having a political reason of doing so.
Anyone reading that with unbiased mind will come to the NRA/Supreme court conclusion.
If you want gun control you should try to amend the constitution, not try to imply that even though they wrote it in a certain way they actually meant something completely else.
>I don't understand UDL
>I don't understand the value of getting the answer correctly rather than the emphasis on process Common Core Assessment entails.
Not everyone benefits from those mental math skills. Not nearly every student does better with them at such a young age compared to conventional memorization. Instead of introducing the concept and allowing students who are able to grasp it to grasp it, you spend a week revisiting the same basic ideas six different ways and many of your students are lost in the lurch. On the test, they're then expected to reproduce any of those seven different ways on demand, too bad if they can get the right answer another way, only one way counts for a given problem.
Common Core places a burden of proof on the teacher to meet certain standards and tie these standards to your lesson. This makes designing your own custom curriculum with your own independent lessons awful. However, if you do do this there are no further restrictions on the lesson or its materials.
So what do you to? You teach out of Pearson's (or another major publisher's) major textbook most of the time, and borrow lessons from other teachers who took the time to tie to standards. Most of these lessons and materials are shit. Why? Because everything has been shat out to be Common Core compliant. They're terrible, but they meet the legal obligation of Common Core and don't make your day any busier than it already is.
How about the idea of the government teaching you kids the incorrect definition of the second amendment?
Why are elementary students learning anything about politics at all?
Futhermore, why is it being taught by idiots? For example look at this quiz:
Why are do these separate issues have the same weighting in the D/R calculation? I know people who disagree with the Democrats on all but 1 of these issues and still vote Democrat because of it. Burning the flag? Who the hell cares??
It's basically just doing it based off remainders, literally no different then how you do division and it's meant to be prep to teach division.
Also while Common Core itself has a fuckton of problems (mainly 95% of teachers don't teach it properly and they don't explain to parents how it works at all) it's still miles better than the old way for just memorize shit which doesn't teach children any number sense or how numbers are fairly flexible.
Looks like a short circuit
Those boards are instructional, for teaching circuits. You plug resistors, capacitors, transistors...etc into them and make stuff happen on the oscilloscope
Seems you're the one who's misinterpreting it by trying to erase the first half.
Now that militias are no longer necessary to the security of a free state, we don't need to protect the right of the people to keep and bear arms.
The math ones don't frighten me very much, outside of the annoyance I feel I'm going to face if I ever have to teaxh basic math to kids. This fucking bullshit though terrifies me. I have always considered cultural Marxism to be a crock of shit, because I always found the eroding of our society's morals and cultural norms to be an incindental effect of various groups' singular efforts. Now, though, I am beginning to question. Who the fuck wrote this book? Why is this not being examined by an impartial body? Why is this not a bigger deal?
This fucking country is circling the drain.
SEND ALL OF THESE PICTURES OF COMMON CORE TO OUR GOD EMPEROR VIA TWITTER
>The commands of government officials must be obeyed by all
Most of what I've seen of common core is brutally retarded, but the idea is sound. It was called Number Theory when I was in elementary school, and we learned about the number line and played with base 10 blocks like pic related and shit.
Did they not do that in the states?
Regardless, enforcing a strict path to solve problems is the wrong direction to take, whether its memorization or newage "math situation" bullshit.
>Now that militias are no longer necessary to the security of a free state
The idea is to lower standards so much that the kids all get grades closer to each other. It's also an excellent tool to indoctrinate kids into specific ideas. It eliminates competition with other classmates and makes stupid kids feel better because they have the chance to score similar to other students. It also looks better on paper with the lower differential in test scores.
One of the huge problems with Common Core is that it was never tested before it was rolled out nation-wide.
Bill Gates thought he knew better than everybody, so he lobbied congress to push the standards through. No testing, no nothing. Just dump it on the kids one-size-fits-all.
what the fuck...
How in the fuck's name you got internet?
>cucks actually believe America needs militias
derp, replied early
but remember the US doesn't use metric so base 10 blocks don't have much of a purpose here
also number line is still used with common core, it just doesn't help with a lot of shit
THE REASON FOR A MILITIA IS TO PREVENT THE GOVERNMENT FROM BECOMING TYRANNICAL YOU FUCKWIT.
THE REASON IT'S THERE, IS SO IF THE GOVERNMENT DECIDES THE DAY OF THE ROPE IS NIGH, THE CIVILIANS CAN FIGHT THE GOVERNMENT AND REINSTATE A NEW ONE.
DID YOU NOT GO TO SCHOOL?
DON'T EVEN TRY TELLING ME THE GOVERNMENT WON'T BECOME TYRANNICAL EITHER
I SERIOUSLY HOPE YOU LIKE SEEING YOUR FAMILY EXECUTED INFRONT OF YOU TO THE SOUND OF AIR RAID SIRENS, BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT WILL HAPPEN IF YOU TRY THIS SHIT.
listen here common core nigger
"the amendment is about maintaining state militias"
go read the actual fucking text of the amendment and tell me they're not twisting it in this "study guide"
Basically they're trying to teach mental math tricks that most people pick up on their own without ever being taught them. Except they're teaching them to do it on paper so it's completely wasted.
And it ignores the much better traditional pen and paper solution methods.
I guess this is some kind of attempt to account for the fact that everyone carries a computer with a calculator on it everywhere they go now. But all it does is piss everyone off.
The point is, the people have the right to bear arms. It's also commenting that militias are necessary to the security of the free state.
The founders never would have dreamed in a million years that the government would disarm the population. It would have been unthinkable, you might as well imagine pigs flying around the sky
There was never anything mentioned about peace time in the 3rd amendment.
You can't force people to quarter soldiers EVER.
They really need to start posting the Constitution verbatim in school books now.
>mfw Australia implemented gun control in their country after a mass shooting and it fucking worked
go shitpost somewhere else dickhead
And then you forget that the whole point of everything after the comma is that the people of the USA have an inalienable right to ownership and use of weapons because if the people aren't armed and capable of using those arms then the militia doesn't exist and the free state is not secured.
that's not a valid response to his valid assertion
We need to defund the department of education immediately. This indoctrination needs to stop.
Okay. Where do the numbers in the middle box come from though? Are they related to the original sum in any way at all? Like "take the first two digits and add them together?" It's just really weird and unstructured otherwise?
Oh, don't you even dare try that meme, fuckwit.
It's done NOTHING to curb homicides, gangs still have guns out the arse, there are at least 200,000 unchecked guns in 3 states alone, and there's a shooting in sydney and brisbane every fucking night.
Your government made the constitution to prevent you from itself. The reason why you can have a rifle or handgun is to revolt incase the government started becoming tyrannical. Your founding fathers literally were witness to this, and set out portions of the constitution to prevent it from happening again.
If you actually believe gun control is a great great idea, I want you to face up against a fireteam (pic related) with nothing but a bottle and a facial mask.
See how far it fucking gets you. Then grab an AR-15 and see how it'll go. You most likely will die, yes. But you'll get at least one of them down, and the fireteam will have to retreat and regroup as such.
Your founding fathers set out this constitution to affirm your rights. You already have these rights (see: god given) as not only seen in the quotes of the fathers, but also the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Research your country.
Not really. The reason for the militia was to defend the country, the reason for private ownership was to prevent the government from making us slaves. The militia literally meant the people in the second amendment. Mason said so himself.
>"I ask, Sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people. To disarm the people is the best and most effectual way to enslave them."

How are those jabronies going to beat disgaea games like this?
You do realise you're agreeing with me, just in a slightly different way, right?
In my explanation, the government would become tyrannical and start acting like a dictatorship, in yours, the government would enslave the people.
Really, the same thing. That's why you have the second amendment (and can own the damn guns).
>Imagine having conversations about numbers with fourth graders
I was doing multiplication, and division perfectly by that time. You're just a psychopath teacher who get his rocks off from mentally raping, and controlling kids. No kids were not taught rote memorization before common core. If anything the old standards were too slow, and relaxed. This new shit is worded to confuse people, and cut down the tall poppies. All the old timers comment on how math was easily grasped by everyone back in the 50's and 60's. Now we have high schools cutting out trig programs all together.
Examining an SAT-to-IQ conversion chart calculated from Mensa entrance criteria, a combined 854 indicates that the average IQ of those pursuing an education major is 91, nine points lower than the average IQ of 100. In other words, those who can’t read teach whole language.
Homeschool your kids anon, or they will be taught by low IQ psychos like this guy.
when did math ever have anything to do with long term memorization? any kid that actually sat down and memorized tables instead of learning to quickly solve the problem is a room temp IQ retardo
You are wrong dickhead, and here's why
>A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
> the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
But....take a look at all the laws and decisions that have upheld it since then!
Oh? I thought /pol/ was all for authoritarians and fascism? Pinochet?
You are so full of shit it's unbelievable.
>SAT-to-IQ conversion chart
>No kids were not taught rote memorization before common core
Implying that teaching rigid adherence to an algorithm isn't easier than teaching actual thinking and intuition.
>All the old timers comment on how
Societal difference. Parents worked their kids harder back then. If you spend the time working with math, it WILL make sense to you.
Jesus fuck. If parents would just sit with their children and work on the math together none of this bullshit would even be necessary. The problem is that lots of parents don't even understand it.
NO. There is LITERALLY no way this is possible. This can't be an actual English textbook for children can it? It has to be like a sociology textbook looking at how different cultures play off each other. It has to be.
If young children are being taught "African American English" alongside true English in grade school, there is absolutely no hope left.
Just remember that this isn't accidental or unintended stupidity.
2 most likely depending on the station
3 the where the ones who did unkind things to indians
4 depends on the scenario but yes mostly male
6 if mestizos beating a pinata count then yes
7 why should i care about this
Spics like myself are highly represented but as mexican mestizos instead of puerto ricans.
The only source I could find on this says it's from an elementary psychology textbook. I'm relieved this isn't being taught to children. It's almost as bad though, because it's being taught to the people who teach our children.
The constitution of America is based on restricting state power, not granting it power.
Most of the amendments are based off of articles in the British Bill of Rights, which also includes the right for the people to bear arms, it's worded as the state not being allowed to disarm protestants though, it's all about context.

I mean seriously..Ameribro.. What the fuck?
Honestly it baffles me whenever Common Core is brought up. I don't get how the idea of having a set of standards for education has been twisted into this monstrosity when it has been implemented succesfully in many other places.
Here's a PDF of the ACTUAL constitution as it was written. Every American on /pol/ should have a copy. Hell, get a copy even if you're not American, just in case.
>women playing baseball

Fuck this garbage. If I ever have a child, they are going to be educated on the principles of anarchism. They will be taught to think for themselves and to always question authority.

The first clause is not conditional. The right of the people to bear arms is not to be infringed regardless of your opinion on whether or not militias are in fact necessary to the security of the free state
Reactionaries, Conservatives, Libertarians, and Classical Liberals are common here. There are probably as many true Fascists as there are Anarcho-Capitalists here at the moment.
That said, /pol/ crystalizes around opposing the Progressive agenda and the social decay it employs, and Fascist ideals make a good platform for that resistance.
There's also probably a few that turn to Nazism just to be contrarian or for shock value.
I took a lot of math in university and I've always been prtty decent at math but this bullshit just makes me angry and confuses me. I guess I'm too used to doing it in ways that actually make sense.
I've been looking over this and apparently there is a "line" between 12 and 32. On this line there are "stops" or what to call them. I don't think there are any specific rules as where to stop on this line.
Honestly i think this kind of math are for kids that don't understand how math works.
While I haven't been a kid in some time, I'd be concerned about children learning certain 'habits' which would greatly hurt them later on, when they need to do actual math.
We're going to have students that struggle because of being poor / dad beats them / mom didn't care / whatever, and don't learn the 'new' (Aka, standard method) of arithmetic. This is fine if you work at McDonald's and your highest aspiration in life is 3rd shift grill bitch, but closes the road for a whole lot of people to discover that being fluent in math is like learning to read well; once you're educated enough all kinds of opportunities open up for you.
This is phrased specifically to imply that the individual right to arms, enforced by not just the constitution, but multiple supreme court decisions, doesn't exist.
Why would they do that?
>but the amendment IS about maintaining state militias, it says as much in the amendment.
>The right of the people to keep and bare arms shall not be infringed
It doesn't say
>the right of the Militia to keep and bare arms
>(a) The militia of the United States consists of all able-bodied males at least 17 years of age and, except as provided in section 313 of title 32, under 45 years of age who are, or who have made a declaration of intention to become, citizens of the United States and of female citizens of the United States who are members of the National Guard.
>(b) The classes of the militia are—
>(1) the organized militia, which consists of the National Guard and the Naval Militia; and
>(2) the unorganized militia, which consists of the members of the militia who are not members of the National Guard or the Naval Militia.
As a Purdue employee and alum I'd say Indiana is probably ahead of the curve with education. Common core is garbage.
I'm proud to say West Lafayette was also ranked one of the least tolerant cities of LGBT in Indiana.
I broke down larger numbers like that as a kid because I was shit at math. I came to that idea on my own though. So common core is just spoon feeding how to solve problems and not encouraging creativity?
>Regroup ten ones as a ten
If I'm understanding it correctly, Common Core can be used to help make complex multiplication/division problems easier. But to use them on addition and subtraction is a huge waste of time.
>Let a regular army, fully equal to the resources of the country, be formed; and let it be entirely at the devotion of the federal government; still it would not be going too far to say, that the State governments, with the people on their side, would be able to repel the danger [of tyranny by the standing army]. The highest number to which, according to the best computation, a standing army can be carried in any country, does not exceed one hundredth part of the whole number of souls; or one twenty-fifth part of the number able to bear arms.
--Federalist No. 46
> "The best way to look at the true meaning of this amendment is to look at what the courts have said about it."
Of all the bullshit I've just looked at, this is the line that rustles me the most.
"Don't think about a topic yourself! Farm off your critical analysis to somebody else! Look at what other people think about it!"
I don't think I've ever been happier to not live in Burgerland
Isn't this exactly what Common Core is basically teaching?
This is a good thing to know how to do with numbers, but most people I knew even in high school wouldn't have been able to do this if they weren't taught it.
>This amendment states that people have the right to certain weapons
In other words not at all what it says. I'm not sure what grade it is for this worksheet but if they're not old enough to understand the Constitution without someone giving their own horseshit interpretation then they are not old enough to learn it yet.
Here's the meaning of the 2nd rewritten for clarity in the modern common speech:
>Because the people must be armed in order to defend themselves against tyranny, the people have a right to keep and bear arms.
We know that the U.S. Supreme Court deliberated that the "militia" is comprised of all able-bodied men between 17 and 45. Also, go read the verdict from Heller v. District of Columbia.
Now why do you think that a justification in a preceding dependent clause in any way changes the meaning of the independent clause?
>get rid of guns
>no more gun violence

Is designed to cover up differences between men and women in mathematical problem solving by giving them a one way "you must do X to y type of problem" and to also mask the black white differences in test scores as well
Threads like these are why you'll never be treated as anything other than a bunch of inbred hicks, /pol/. I hope you know that. They harm this board even more than all the religion and global warming threads, at least those are somewhat debatable topics.
It means "stocked up", boot licker. You know, they have plenty of ammo and enough guns? Like the reason why soldiers are called "regulars"? Because they're properly equipped. Nothing to do with "regulation" as we use the word today.
You really think the founders put in place a system by which the American people can defend themselves from a tyrannical government, but they have to be overseen BY THAT EXACT SAME GOVERNMENT?
Edfag here. Common core was actually made to sell books and training materials.
It's exactly the opposite. They specifically discussed in the federalist and antifederalist papers whether it should be
Eg, one proposal specificaly said "right to hunt". They deliberately decide no NO limits. The same weapons as the military.
In fact, we had private, civillian artillery and cannon warships up until the civil war.
>Register them and not been in prison.
Absolutely nothing about either one there. Citizens in prison are still citizens. Felons DO lose their rights, but it's not in the amendment. And they also lose other fundamental rights, like voting.
You know, I had hypothesized that common core would reduce the performance gap by reducing the effectiveness of parents. But it also occurs to me that it might make the gap worse, as only a few parents will be able to adapt, and those will be the smartest ones. Your take?
It literally is communism, not even a joke. You would be shocked how many marxists are in the government and how communism became main stream. Feminism for example is a main stream communist fraction that a lot of people believe in without question.
Feminism is not about self-sufficiency but about free resources and governmental subjugation. Feminism stems from communism and is falsely guised under women empowerment so that people won't question it.
It's clearly stated multiple times what the founders meant when they used the word "right" in both the Constitution and the Declaration. Rights cannot be taken away or infringed upon by their nature. Sorry I forgot to take your particular semantic autism into account.
One, because America is HUGE. Can you imagine one set of educational standards for all of europe?
Two. Because the people making it are unaccountable political selections with zero classroom experience.
Three. Because the student culture, background and needs for Whitebread, Kansas, Detroit, and South Culo Arizona with a 80% english illiteracy rate are different.
Four. Because they didn't even test the fucking thing before doing a nationwide rollout.
Instead of having school boards choose instructional materials and curriculum, it's going to be dictated from the US department of education.
The people who wrote the curriculum wrote shit that is unnecessarily completely incompatible with most of what has been taught, inventing new language and fairly rigid exercises, so that even trained engineers have no fucking clue how to read k-6 math worksheets.
Because the shit is untested and rushed, there are errors fucking everywhere.
Can you think of any sane reason why they wouldn't properly pilot test the curriculm before releasing it?
