Public Education in America: "Dec. 7, 1941 - A Day That Will Live in Germany!" ~ Franklin Delano Roosevelt

Well, it's almost that day again. Almost every year I spend hours writing something about Pearl Harbor (or Hiroshima and Nagaski, etc.) attempting to give the truthful background on such events and not the propaganda that is taught in US public high schools.

And, invariably, I will be bombarded with comments by people who went to those high schools and "studied," and now believe - without question - said propaganda... Basically, about Pearl Harbor, the story goes along the lines of; "The dirty Japs bombed Pearl Harbor as a sneaky surprise attack. We were just standing there, minding our own business, not bothering anyone, and they bombed us! Out of the blue! Just like that! We hadn't done anything to them!" 

(If you think this, ask yourself one question: "When has the USA ever minded their own business in international affairs?" Answer: "Never.")

Killing innocent women, men, and children in Hiroshima and Nagasaki has an excuse runs along the same lines of tortured logic and incorrect "facts," but I'll save that for summer. This year, I thought I'd spend a bunch of time (about three minutes on Photoshop) on an "original artwork" (picture) about said Pearl Harbor events.... 

Actually, this isn't so much about "said events," it is a critique of what is taught in public schools. It is a critique of the public education system. 

This serves to compile all the arguments people usually send me about the reasons killing women and children were OK in Hiroshima and Nagasaki or Dresden or the firebombing of Tokyo.... (Or why it's the same excuses to this very day for bombing, killing, orphaning and maiming brown skinned children in the Middle East in at least seven nations today, 24/7...Bringing them freedom or fighting terrorism...)

When these people write to me with this ridiculous propaganda, there's really no point in arguing with many of them... They weren't taught reasoning and deduction in school... Nor, can you tell by what they wrote were they ever taught logic... Don't even get me started on their wretched grammar and diction - It's worse than mine!

So, here it is. In one little picture, my impression of 50% of the US public school graduates understanding of history... This covers all history subjects for them. (Laugh now, but it's probably much worse than 50% ~ probably in the 80s or 90s! See video below!)

You know, they say a picture speaks a thousand words...

War sucks 1930/1940s. War sucks 2014. It brings out the worst in human beings. Its an enterprise of greed and lies. The atomic bombed Nagasaki city was the window through which Christianity first arrived in Japan. It was bombed because Kokura city had too much cloud cover. Kyoto city where the emperor lived was passed up because the US Secretary of War Henry L. Stimson had honeymooned there and admired it.

So, let me get this straight, currently the US engages in the wars, to get cheap raw materials that Japan uses to make toys and gadgets, that the US buys with pieces of paper, that Japan then uses to support the continuation of the US government, continuing production of toys and gadgets, along with maintaining a cheap supply of raw materials.

Is that right? So who is the perpetrator, and who is the accomplice?
