Answer this: Why the hell do you need well trained school teachers to babysit kids under 5 years old? Are they learning Algebra?
Those teachers can't teach a lower math like algebra anyhow... However they are very good at putting blocks on top of each other, in reality the kids are "teacehrsitting" the idiot of society

What I love is the Obama administration hiring 16,000 new hated IRS employees while at the same time firing 500 firefighters.

Stupid simply can't be made up.

govt schools dont work wrote:
<quoted text>
exactly, stay at home and educate your own children, until they are 5 yrs old and ready for full day school. If you are going to have 15 kids, then budget your time and money to SUPPORT them yourself.
it is not the govt responsibility to feed, and care for YOUR children. If you have more that 5-6 kids you should pay more taxes for schools.
the taxes should be based on usage, it you have several children, you will have to pay additional property taxes to support your govt. schools.

I agree, and if you have no children, you should get a discount on your property taxes ( no support of govt. schools ) if you are not using their service.

If they have the obligation to take care of them 24/7, guess Drs, Teachers, Police, parks, play grounds, and JOBS are a waste of time ?

Oh right, another non-smart moniker....

You progressives ph uked everything up. You so depend on everyone else wiping the azzes from the results of your agendas, you blame the people who disagree with you. The facts is you could cut those jobs or their salaries by a third and improve the work rules and still get the same results that you love. getting one of those jobs is like a lottery compared to many others by people who are smarter or qualified to do more in America. What has happened is, we have become a nation of "WISEGUYS". Everyone wants to get on that bandwagon. If you don't then your a sucker. This is not about smaller government as much as slowing down the mass expansion of a huge government conglomerate that is rapidly vortexing into a totalitarian state.

You forgot the government. You know, government paid day care, government paid food and housing, government paid health care, government paid transportation, government paid college and a monthly government check to help out. No problem though, it's free money.
