Global warming is making the planet uncomfortably hot. Our glaciers are receding. Snow packs are shrinking. Our summer water supplies will be diminished. Combine these problems with depleted and polluted aquifers and you'll end up with a thirsty planet. It must be The Plan.

Destruction of our Education System

We have not only failed to maintain our physical infrastructure, we have failed to maintain our human infrastructure. When I went to California public colleges in the Seventies, every kid in California could afford to go to college. Since then, we've been paying more for less. When my kid was going to California public schools in the Nineties, I had to teach her phonics and math tables. Now, college grads are saddled with student loans as big as some mortgages and with few job prospects to service those loans.

An Aside -- I live in the Poway Unified School District which has a stellar reputation. Yet in 2011 the District financed $124.6M with a capital appreciation bond for which we will pay $981.6M in principal and interest. The same corrupt idiots responsible for this billion dollar boondoggle were responsible for the education of my neighbors' kids.

If the goal is to destroy our education system, as I suspect, there are certainly more cost effective ways of doing so.

I thought the dumbing of America was done to make us more pliable - easier to manipulate. We're supposed to be too dumb to question the authority of chosen experts. These chosen experts, of course, are all bought and paid for. We're supposed to simply acquiesce to their findings. Work, consume, obey, and die.

We may in fact have been stupidified for our own good. I submit our plutocrats have selflessly sacrificed the quality of their wage slaves to make us a worthless slave population for our future alien masters.

Follow one of the links below for more detail on what our plutocrats have done to strengthen this preemption:
