Well, the case is becoming even more clear; Generation X have got to be the worst parents in generations. Today the College Board released the same sad statistics; only 23 percent of American high school students were able to pass all four segments of the SAT, which qualify them for math, science, reading and english courses in college. Only 43 percent passed even one of the SAT categories. The College Board reports those passing at least one SAT category have remained stuck on that 43% for the past five years.
It appears to be getting even worse as the SAT data does not take into account the nearly 50% of students who drop out of school and are not even counted since they opted out of SAT testing. Alas, the sad sacks that are taking the SATs are the "cream" of a very bad crop!
The famous saying "those who will not take a stand will fall for anything" seems to be proving true with Gen X, Y and Millenials as they drift along in relative ignorance, swallow gallons of liberal Kool-Aid and elect Socialists like Barack Hussein Obama.
This is the same generation that is trying to make a career in fast food since they have no other skills, other than flip, squirt and wrap hamburgers. And now they want $15 dollars an hour to work at Burger King because they suddenly find, at 25, they are unable to make a living flipping burgers and need the public to subsidize their modest career goals by paying $6 bucks for a Big Mac.
So dumb are Gen Y and Millenials that they failed a quiz this week on naming the first four Presidents. All these cretins seem to be able to do is slobber over Miley Cyrus and Beyonce and Barack Obama and ingest bath salts and Ecstasy while playing Grand Theft Auto on their Play Station.
But take heart, like monkeys, they have developed their digital skills by texting nonsense to each other much of their day. They are heartened by the abbreviated text language since it does not require them to actually spell words...since they can't.
"With our country struggling to compete in a global marketplace and millions of skilled jobs left unfilled here at home, it is essential to ensure that our students are prepared for college and careers," the College Board report says.
Don't bet on any improvement in those SAT scores. These last two generations seemed to have the ambition of a sloth and the brain stem of a shark and you can put a big chunk of the blame on Gen X who seems to have bred and raised a whole lot of societal losers.
Sad. Damned Sad.
