You probably thought I'd be linking to an Onion article, didn't you? http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2013/01/...shing-the-liberal-agenda-by-teaching-algebra/ So yes, the distributive property, the tenet of 6th grade algebra, that states that 2(x + y) = (2x + 2y) is socialist indoctrination. Damn liberals want to redistribute that 2 to everyone. No wonder America is always towards the bottom of education rankings. Another gem from the article: He does make a fair point though. As we all know, facts have a liberal bias.
