The Check Is In The Mail

By D. E. Carson, published on Apr 29, 2008

...Those are just shows the government puts on to get people to willingly give up a buck or two a week on the empty promise that if you get the right numbers, you’ll get an aircraft carrier load of money. The whole production is done by actors and the money doesn’t really help education. Oh, it goes to education, but that was a bait and switch. You see, if the government was giving $25 million to education before the lottery, that $25 million was replaced by the $25 million that was raised through the lottery. The money from the lottery goes to education as promised, but ... (more)

Mc Cain Wants To Fix Economy? Here's How!

By D. E. Carson, published on Apr 16, 2008

...by 2019. Get rid of government entitle programs. If the government could stop wasting that money alone the budget would have a surplus every year and we wouldn’t have to do any of the rest of these suggestions, BUT, doing this one and the rest is a better idea. Eliminate the Department of Education. Government schools are polluting children’s heads with liberal garbage instead of actually teaching them worthwhile skills like reading and writing. Do you know how many memos I see every day that have misspelled words and poor grammar? AND I WORK FOR A PUBLIC SCHOOL DISTRICT! These people ... (more)

Empty Pockets And A Ticket To Nowhere

...benefits -- of course, only if they survive, and without injury to their bodies and minds. Without telling them the job description is kill or be killed, rob another person that you don't even know of their human rights, human dignities, and their freedom, all so you can have a college education, early retirement and live in comfort.

...than when they went in.

Hollywood thinks the military is a bunch of country bumpkins turned war criminals who only joined the service to escape a miserable life of poverty and despair. I think John Kerry said it best when addressing a group of high school kids a year or so ago.

"Education -- if you make the most of it and you study hard and you do your homework, and you make an effort to be smart, you can do well," said Kerry, a Massachusetts Democrat. "If you don't, you get stuck in Iraq."

The idea that only idiots without an education end up fighting for their country ... (more)
