America the stupid? So indicates the U S Army
Previously posted a video titled “America the stupid?” Concerning the results of the International Student Assessment survey showing American students ranking low in math, science and reading.
According to a report concerning entrance exams for the United States Army, nearly 23% who take the test fail. However the number is miss-leading and further examination proves the figure to be worse.
Out of 100 recruits (17 to 20 year olds), 75 are not even qualified to take the test. Reasons being unfit, criminal records, and school dropouts. That leaves 25 to test. Out of the 25, 23% fail the test, meaning only 19 pass the test. Which comes to 19 out of 100 recruits qualify to serve in the U.S. Army.
The proponents of dumbing down America have succeeded in their goal to negatively impact the readiness of our Armed Forces. The politically correct liberals who have as their goal to keep America stupid for a multiple of reason can now celebrate. They see the USA as a threat to peace in the world. Dumbing down the nation to harm the readiness of American armed forces lessons the likelihood of American military involvement.
Sample question on the test: If 2 plus X equals 4, what is the value of “X?” (2 + X = 4, answer: 2 + 2 = 4)
