Just in Case You are Inclined to Trust the Government with Your Tax Dollars
Where exactly does the money go? This video shows the insane incompetence of the Federal Reserve, but think about it -- the federal government is now trying to take over the multi-multi BILLION dollar education system. Will the money become as "lost" as the money the feds have supposedly 'invested' off the books? Will they simply use it to line the pockets of friends in high places who have the "next big idea" to "save" our schools? (BTW, those ideas generally involve dismantling our current schools, firing the staffs and reopening as a charter - ready to place enrollment requirements on its students as well as turn away anyone with "special" needs.)
This is a very, very slippery slope and I am strongly encouraging all of you to pay attention - don't be lulled into a sense of security that our government is going to rescue our schools from themselves.... We all know our public schools are far from perfect - but then again, we need to be very careful what we wish for.
