FIFA Opinion

This guy here, he gets it.

High Altitude School Cheats

March 10, 2015

– “Teach” is just an anagram for “Cheat.”
– We must cheat poor people in order to stay rich.
– Aspen is full of rich people.

With that in mind, The Cheater wrote this opinion column about the AP History revisions for The Aspen Times: Kid’s Today

Snip: … By teaching kids to become unquestioning cogs in a massive economic machine, we’ll remove critical thinking from their brains, leaving room for more exceptionalism, more patriotism, more America.

After all, “more” is just an anagram for “Rome.” And don’t we want our children’s future to burn as brightly as the great Republic of Rome?

The Cheater Says: Apparently, I love anagrams.
