I suspect there has not been a kid alive that didn’t have to be forced to do his grade school homework. In my day parental threats were used to accomplish that task, today enticements most often are likely used. Here is my list of the consequences of not doing your homework:
When you don’t do your homework you make terribly uninformed decisions. –
When you don’t do your homework you lose out on opportunities in life. –
When you don’t do your homework you fall behind everyone else.
When you don’t do your homework you remain ignorant of too many topics.
It is not until later that most of us learn that studying a topic makes us more informed and better able to take on life’s challenges. When we gain knowledge on a subject we can make better decisions and if we are writers/bloggers maybe we can even convince others to look at things a little differently.
One of the most dreadful realities of not doing your homework currently resides in the White House, well at least for a few days each week. He is so vain and convinced of this superintelligence that he refuses to do his homework so he could be a better president. Surely in his mind’s eye, he knows he is not qualified for his duties but he will never, even if his life depends on it, admit to that fact. To do so would be to admit that he is not perfect. The sad reality is that the average eighth grader probably has more knowledge of the Constitution than he does. He is one of those few people who doesn’t care to learn something he doesn’t know. But maybe that is because he thinks he knows everything.
Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and to remove all doubt.
