Do you assume that you know?

I ask many questions before I assume.
Do you?
Is assuming you have all the answers a big problem in our society?
Could we all learn more by actually listening to each other?
Think about it.

I have all the answers. I have listened to people all my life, and many of them do not have any common sense.
Yes, it is a big problem in our society, many students coming out of college think they know it all, but wait until they are in the real world, they don't know what the hell is going on. Many colleges now days are a big joke!!
They do not teach the kids the fundamentals of life, only that they are smart because they have a worthless degree in how to hug a tree. The United States is bad, because we are trying to protect ourselves!! But what country is always called upon when anther country needs help?? I should have said what country is always first to respond to a disaster anyplace around the world. We give money to our enemies, what the hell is wrong here? Were we ever paid back from any country who we helped when they needed it? NO!!

We do live in a society in which many well educated people lack common sense. Practical skills are fundamental. Most of us learn by doing things. Not from a book. Books teach theories. Reality, repetition and experience teach how.
A good teacher knows how to translate theories into reality.
Many people do well on paper because they memorize things well but; lack the ability to actually perform in reality. Too many of these people become teachers. A real teacher has away of explaining things to everyone.
My son's teacher has the gift. Too few teachers do.
Dixie do you remember when China was in debt to the US? Why did we forgive their debt? What became of it?
My mother always said, she wouldn't by Chinese anything because it was junk. Much of it still is.
America has been too kind to nations that hate us.
The Political rhetoric from both parties condones this. In between the lines I hear screw the Middle Class. We support Business not the working Middle Class. Not poor people.
I ask know it alls. If you needed surgery would you prefer the new Doctor with a 4:00 GPA and little practical experience? Or one with a lower GPA but extensive Surgical experience? They often just stare.
I sat across the table at many IEP Meetings. Looking at paper pushers with PHD Psychology Degrees, Special Degrees, MS W's and more. I told them the laws and demanded what was appropriate for my son. They were often shocked by my intelligence and rude. They resented me because they could not intimate me. Few people can and those that try regret it.
I am about facts and what works. No one will ever take advantage or abuse my son to make a buck. In NYC and most of NY. state teachers have no clue how to teach autistic people. They lack common sense and are not trained in ABA the only method that is Scientifically proven to work.
Our school System is the biggest example there is of so called educated people who produce nothing. The ones who do IEP's push paper. They never attempt to teach anyone.
The teachers who are suppose to teach autistic people have no clue how. They make me want to vomit. They lack morals and ability. I would fire anyone who would not agree to be trained in ABA over their Vacation.
My next door neighbor teaches in our local college. She barely speaks English. They are from China. How can she teach anyone? In the US?

No... I'm never absolutely sure of anything.
I'll turn on a dime in light of new info.
For me, it's degrees of probability; never 100%.
