I would have never expected them for the type to support Common Core.

Why do educated people not understand the dire need for education to be NOT common across a society.

Education is like most all other endeavors, you want diversity and distributed control for a resilient and reliable system.
Is this not self evident to all? This notion is taught in engineering, biology and chemistry classes the world over.

The reader possessing a keen eye will note that I am not arguing against CC for the typical reasons. My biggest complaint
is that we, our society, needs to be constructed like any WELL DESIGNED system, one that is distributed and "uncommon" across the
participants.

Google "exxon common core" for the details.

Eff 'em, I'll purchase fuel elsewhere.

Research the refining and marketing of gasoline. You'll find your goal difficult.

If GD followed the corporate/board/shareholder/capital lender/etc. ties for each company who's products and services they use, it would end up naked in a forest somewhere.

We would at least be holding blemished PSA lowers.

Good for you. I'll watch my dividends to see if they change due to your boycott. I won't hold my breath.

Divert your funds to Chevron and it'll help my fifteen year plan.
