Lewis, I love you – but there are three little words every American child should know how to read, and not just on a computer screen, but in person, should it come to it…'We The People' etc

Fake news. This is beyond reality.

That's why all my letters to the USA come back. People can't read cursive

Vermont officially closes each night at 11:00. $10,000.00 incentive but no place fun to spend it. The sad truth is that there are not enough lonely day dwellers in a sparsely populated state with $10,000 of maple syrup in their basements. #NotEnoughPancakes.

Kids should learn cursive! I hire people all the time who don't even have a signature because all they know how to do is print. And they can't read it either. As long as we have documents, modern or historical, that use cursive then we should teach our kids how to read them.


cool germans are adults witzh 16. ;D
We can drink from that age on, and buy beer.
but we only can drive with 17/18 and vote with 18. Untill then we can drown our sorrow in good beer 😀


Wait a minute, cursive is usually not being taught in USA ? What is the alternative ?

It’s kind of fucked up.


The New Laws material is great, but please lose the presenter.

I have an emotional support animal(dog), and even i think taking one on a plane is stupid. You dont NEED it with you EVERYWHERE. If you do, then dont go on trips where a plane is required–you clearly should be worrying about your emotional health issues, not a vacation. This all has gotten so bad that ive stopped taking mine anywhere with me. So now she is just a dog. Emotional support is useless as a title, im not sure what stipulations it owned that varied it from dogs to begin with, because all those i thought it had are… Read more »

Cursive absolutely fucked up my handwriting and it took years to undo the damage.

Wow Ohio marriage age was 13, and now 16? And you are not considered an adult until 18…so child marriage exists by law, mind you, in the most advanced nation – real shame.
