I learned something interesting today (Jan 21, 2017)

David Rosenberg, in the Saturday Globe and Mail, pointed out that Trump is “juggling way too many balls at the same time” and ignoring the most important one. The most important one relates to the fact that the average American is a few bricks short of a load when it comes to math and science, while the average Chinese is on top.

So if Trump (who ranks right down there with Warren G. Harding when it comes to intelligence), wants to mess with China, perhaps he should start with the U.S. public school system. And if he wants to help all the underemployed in the Rust Belt deal with the automated assembly lines that have taken away their jobs, perhaps he should, yeah, once again, start with the U.S. public school system.
