So yeah, it's *just* a fucking math problem.
I don't think there's a third grader out there (or a Republican) who knows (or cares) what communism is.

i was not crying in the shower
i just realized how i'll never get to meet darth vader and then soap got in my eye - Kylo Ren
I usually like to know what Im talking about so I watched the video. What I saw was people making up their own interpretation of a homework assignment in a really extreme way based on what was actually on the paper. Before that I assumed that they had a problem with the word "distributive" in the mathematical principle which isnt far off from what they were really talking about. That was before any of the conservatives in this thread said anything besides "MSNBC is as bad as Fox News."

Wait until he gets to the Properties of Equality.
The problem here is overblown, but tbh I'd say the header is uncalled for. And people are denying that education shapes kids despite a century of experience showing the contrary :/

makes me wonder if people still watch faux news the same way they bought the national inquirer.
I watched Fox News once. The TV was at a hospital because my Dad had to get a scan to check him for cancer possibly if it's bad enough. They mentioned a tidbit about a selfless act ever few minutes and they kept going back to bashing Obama constantly for about an hour and a half and during breaks mentioned the selfless act but never explained in detail about it. They just kept bashing Obama until FINALLY mentioning the Selfless act and going on about the American spirit.
I rolled my eyes. And lastly I don't watch the News on TV that much. Too much violence and dumb crap.
That's my experience with Fox News.
On topic though. I don't believe in brainwashing but I don't believe it happened to me. Teachers never went political with me. They hardly did. If anything it was mostly about school/teenage issues. No politics or anything.
For example, we are being brainwashed into thinking that we want things we don't need by every commercial we see. A more close-to-the-hearth example is the American Dream.

You can replace CNN with any "neutral" US broadcasting station, Fox with any right wing, MSNBC with any left wing, and BBC with any news station interested in real news.
You can lead a person to knowledge, but you can't make them think.
This reminds me of the Petraeus scandal which went on way too long when the news should have been pressuring politicians to reach a fiscal cliff deal. They also went on a long tangent on Kate Middleton's pregnancy and the English royal succession, neither of which matter at all in America.
