13,000 jobs were made this month in the private sector. About 14,000 were made in May.

Don’t you just love government, economic uncertainty, and the lack of historical understanding that infects our politicians and voters who put them there.

What’s the solution to fraud in the private sector? Jail time.

What’s the solution to waste/fraud/inefficiency in government? More government, or a re-election.

This, ladies and gentlemen, is the problem we face today.

I’ll go with the nay-sayers out there for a brief waste of text. I’ll give kudos to PrezBO for “trying something new.”

But unlike many people, I’ve read a few history books. If you read about the FDR administration, and the Wilson administration you would agree with me that the board of education needs to be abolished. Because calling it uncanny would be a vast understatement of the similarities of the progressive presidents: Wilson, Franklin Delano Roosevelt ( *gasp* a Republican?) and our current anointed one.

I’m going to quote a short script from an article I fell in love with. Written by Mona Charen:

“The Department of Education was created as a straight political payoff to the teacher’s unions by President Jimmy Carter (in return for their 1976 endorsement). According to the National Center for Education Statistics, DE’s original budget, in 1980, was $13.1 billion (in 2007 dollars) and it employed 450 people. By 2000, it had increased to $34.1 billion, and by 2007, more than doubled to $73 billion. The budget request for fiscal 2011 is $77.8 billion, and the department employs 4,800

All of this spending has done nothing to improve American education. Between 1973 and 2004, a period in which federal spending on education more than quadrupled, mathematics scores on the National Assessment of Educational Progress rose just one percent for American 17-year-olds. Between 1971 and 2004, reading scores remained completely flat.”

So how do you feel about the BOE now?

To reiterate my feelings and to rupture all of your warm and fuzzy ones. What constitutional authority does the federal government have to dictate our education?

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. If you send your kid to a religious school of any kind. Let’s call it “The PB&J School of worship.” One could safely assume that your child would graduate from that institution with warm and fuzzy feelings about how good PB&J is. Ditto for Catholic schools, Lutheran Schools, and yes, our dear Government schools. Kids who go to government schools typically come out of them thinking government is pretty cool, and that we live in a Democracy. With the exception of Reagan we haven’t really had a conservative president in the last century.

I hope they saved some hair follicles from Ronald. Because the day we achieve human cloning might be the day we save our dear republic. (No I am not pro-cloning. Develop a sense of humor)
