Education: too valuable to waste on non-voting unproductive non-taxpayers

Once again, something that would be a funny Onion parody, except that it’s on the level (h/t Tom at Romantoes.) And the “funny” thing here in Colorado is that it’s the Democratic Governor who has proposed slashing the K-12 budget! (Then again, he’s taking a much smaller whack out of the higher education budget, which has been the unencumbered piggybank the state’s been raiding for the past three years. That’s what counts as “good news” these days, I guess.)

  1. and then, with kids working at less than the minimum wage, that will bring their parents’ wages down, increasing profits and further depressing the economy! yay!


  2. Once we de-fund EPA, there’ll be plenty of good, low-paying jobs for these kids in the only half-extracted bituminous mines that we can un-shutter after a shameful generation of regulatory terror. If they can actually *read*, then we’ll have to move all of the OSHA notices higher on the shaft wall, say about to the 7-8 foot level. Until we can defund OSHA.


  3. Thanks for posting this, Historiann! It was a real delight to see this commercial on our television this morning, and I thought you’d enjoy it!


  4. So let’s just agree. We’ll defund education, close all of the failing schools, and send our kids back to work where they belong! Traditional values — at least those pesky nineteenth-century ones — will once again hold sway. Do people really want this?


  5. Slavery is already at the door. We still have some education but in good time we will see history marching backwards on YouTube. Almost forget, wolf and sheep will love each other forever.


Let me have it!
