And too many reflected the same opinion that I stated earlier. Which I really don't think they meant. But I feel that their remarks went unchallenged and the teacher should have discussed this with the students and I don't think this happened. I certainly didn't mean to criticize teachers in general. I feel that it is an honorable profession that is grossly underpaid. But I am amazed with the number of young people that are ignorant of the basic subjects that were drilled into me when I was in school. To sum it up, I feel that we need to be competitive in the world market and we must be mentally and physically fit to achieve that. We need to do the best we can with what we have. Those were my intentions.

If the cheaper labor rate of China is true, then why is it the prices on these new vehicles going up and up and up, where as other items made in China, shipped to and sold in the US going down, way down?
We all have to realize that it is a global economy now more than ever. Things are are changing and will not stop changing. Like it or not, we must keep up with the changes or stagnate. I remember the "good ol days" because I had the privledge to grow up in the 50's and 60's.
Instead of teaching kids not to pet strange dogs, the dogs must be dealt with. Instead of teaching kids in the school about our history and current events.......
DARN and Toyota was in the running to be my next vehicle.
I have owned G.M. for the past 23 years and I have bought my LAST G.M. car, truck, van or anything made by G.M. I am really displeased with their quality
