The Story of Thanksgivingā€¦As Told by College Students

One University of Colorado Boulder student told Campus Reform reporter Caleb Bonham that the pilgrims arrived at North America in 1810. Others had trouble identifying the Mayflower as their ship.

ā€œTheir reciting of the first Thanksgiving is as inaccurate as it is hilarious,ā€ Bonham said.

This is how we get $18 trillion debt, Iran nuclear, Constitution shredded and free healthcare for all.

Just adorable.

Allowing the US federal government to have anything to do with public schooling was a terrible mistake ~ smh.

Not if the goal was to dumb down America.  It is working.
