I have the pleasure of working with 17-24 year old Americans. One day I asked a 21 year old .gov high school grad how to spell his middle name of Steven (many forms of Steven). His reply "I don't know how to spell it. I never have to use it".
Since then I periodically ask random young adults to spell for me their middle names. Many have to think hard about spelling it and often I have those who simply cannot spell their own middle name.
Government schools and the marxist bandits who teach in them are one of the biggest reasons behind the fall of the Republic.
Try it sometime....ask an American product of .gov schools how to spell his/her name. You'll be able to tack one more reason to your "Why I Despise .Gov Employees" list.
