The Three Kinds of Illiteracy

The Three Kinds of Illiteracy
http://www.reformed.org/webfiles/antithesis/index.html?mainframe=/webfiles/antithesis/v1n5/ant_v1n5_illiteracy.html

excerpt:
Thirteen percent of American seventeen-year-olds are illiterate, according to a recent issue of Time; the estimate for minority youth is an astonishing forty percent.[1] Every year, at least a million of these functional illiterates graduate from America's high schools, the proud owners of meaningless diplomas.

excerpt:
Illiteracy this extensive is virtually unprecedented in America's history. Eighty years ago, in 1910, only 2.2 percent of American children between the ages of ten and fourteen could neither read nor write.

I think Obama gamed the illiterate to put him where he is now. Listen to Obama and the democrats with their statements and speeches. Propaganda to reach the illiterate.

Maybe there should be voter ID laws (especially in swing states) since people are so illiterate and stupid to get one. You do have to fill out a form.
BRRRUUUUHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHHAHAHAHAHA That's right put voter ID laws in the swing states. That's a novel idea. It will surely win an election.
BRRRUUUUHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHHAHAHAHAHA

Yep,
Democrats need to go out with someone with reading and writing skills to register the illiterate democrats.
Republicans should do the same thing. Maybe the republicans would have gotten more votes for their candidate that way.
Is that how democrats won swing states?
BRRRUUUUUHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Sorry about post #4...I hit "Enter" on accident.

I'd just like to know why everything that makes the news reciprocates back to the president. I mean, I read articles everyday about (R's) that are having issues but, none of the (R) supporters here EVER talk about their own folks...be it good or bad.
