# Common Core math education intentionally designed to make America's children mentally ill

(NaturalNews) If you look around America today, mathematical mental illness is found everywhere. It's found in the federal budget, where numbers only mean what we are told they mean, not what they really mean. Mental illness is also found in medicine, where mentally ill victims of mercury in vaccines viciously attack parents who seek to protect their children from those very same vaccines. It's also found in the new "Common Core" curriculum, spearheaded by the federal government, which seems intentionally designed to make children mentally ill and as confused as possible.

Case in point: See this homework assignment from an elementary school in New York. The "mathematics" exercise instructs children to "Draw the cubes you colored in the number bond" and then "Show the hidden partners on your fingers to an adult."

The final instruction asks students to "Color the fingers you showed."

I do PhD-level work in analytical chemistry and code complex relational databases, yes despite my best efforts to grasp this Common Core exercise, I have no idea what on Earth this lesson is attempting to teach.

Here's the homework assignment. See if you can figure it out:

Examining these lessons, I feel a genuine sense of alarm for the future of America. If even the people writing mathematics lessons can't communicate clearly, then we are rapidly descending into Idiocracy. The real aim seems to be about making schoolchildren mentally ill so that they cannot possibly understand the federal budget deficit, national debt, or the coming collapse of the U.S. dollar (which will destroy their paychecks and life savings when it ultimately happens).

# The mystery of the shaded parts

Here's another Common Core lesson that just baffles the mind. The lesson asks children to "Match the picture with the fraction that names the shaded part."

As you can clearly see, there are no shaded parts! Yet this appears to be the whole point: to drive children insane by making them believe they cannot grasp reality.

Your schoolchild can get extra credit, as you see at the bottom left of the sheet, by, "telling how you made each match." I have no doubt the correct answers here would be along the lines of, "I used government math to figure it out" or even, "The pretty one is the best answer."

# The worst math question in human history

Finally, there's one more Common Core exercise that the Daily Caller has named the "worst math question in human history."

Here's a scan of the question:

Juanita wants to give bags of stickers to her friends. She wants to give the same number of stickers to each friend. She's not sure if she needs 4 bags or 6 bags of stickers. How many stickers could she buy so there are no stickers left over?

This question really only makes sense if you replace "stickers" with "bags of cocaine." Then it actually sounds slightly less insane, figuring that people who snort bags of cocaine probably don't care much about mathematics in the first place:

Juanita wants to give bags of cocaine to her friends. She wants to give the same number of bags of cocaine to each friend. She's not sure if she needs 4 bags or 6 bags of cocaine. How many bags of cocaine could she buy so there are no bags of cocaine left over?

The answer, of course, is FIVE.

# How to educate Americans to take vaccine shots, believe in Big Government spending and obey your commands

The Common Core curriculum, of course, is all about training young minds to be so utterly confused that they will agree to inject their own children with mercury in vaccines while voting for whichever candidate promises to give them the most "free" stuff.

Common Core is about making American children incredibly stupid so that as those children reach voting age, more people will vote for stupid government that enacts stupid laws to achieve stupid results.

It's about making intelligent thought as elusive as possible so that people can be easily manipulated into thinking that drinking diet soda makes you thin or that taking blood pressure medications makes you feel healthy and vibrant. (Or even that eating Happy Meals makes you happy.)

As long as the population is trained to exist in a state of total confusion and bewilderment, they will actually believe the news they hear on MSNBC or the dodgy answers coming from the White House press secretary. In a nation where the political party with the greatest number of stupid people wins the next election, dumbing down the masses is a key strategy for long-term power!

Nations like China, India and Russia, meanwhile, are actually teaching their children to succeed at math and science.

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com) and a globally recognized scientific researcher in clean foods. He serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation.

Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and Native American Indians. He's also of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his "Health Ranger" passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world's first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released over a dozen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
