History teaches us that history teaches us nothing ...

So, CNN reports that "the company that literally started Silicon Valley is moving to Texas."

 

And I'm thinking, "I didn't know Fairchild Semiconductor was even still in operation!"

 

They were talking about HP.

 

(Kids.  I'm surrounded by kids ...)

Does the American education system even offer History any more?

Re: History teaches us that history teaches us nothing ...

I get it. Reading comments and statements from those who came through the education system after myself. I know that just a couple graduating classes after mine simply missed out on History and Government/Civics and Economics in favor of social studies and something long forgotten to me. Let me say this knowledge gap is glaringly obvious to me today.

 

Not so much wrong but a clearly different set of viewpoints.

It is important to the American economy that history is not taught on a strictly factual basis. This allows for the production of movies like "The Patriot," "Pearl Harbor," and "Argo."

Harsh, man, HARSH!

Oh you forgot Oliver Stone's JFK.

Every time I see the name of that third movie, an old Army epithet springs into memory, "Argo, .... yourself."
