I love your source and its author, a man with an agenda of his own and a vested interest in seeing things that do not exist but support his primary occupational narrative.<quoted text>
No reason, no reason at all to elect a person that uses her position as a board of education member to further her interests as a tea party member and to promote her extreme version of politics within our local community and school district:
Rob Boston is senior policy analyst at Americans United for Separation of Church and State. Rob, who has worked at Americans United since 1987, also serves as assistant editor of AU's "Church & State" magazine. Rob is the author of three books: "Close Encounters with the Religious Right: Journeys into the Twilight Zone of Religion and Politics" (Prometheus Books, 2000); "The Most Dangerous Man in America? Pat Robertson and the Rise of the Christian Coalition" (Prometheus Books, 1996) and "Why the Religious Right Is Wrong About Separation of Church and State" (Prometheus Books, 1993; second edition, 2003).
As a man who makes his living pandering inflammatory prose to a constituency that provides the funding for his organization that provides him with his living.
People like this man conquer anything, they just keep ginning up the fear factor so the cash keeps rolling.
The disparagement of those who believe that government should be transparent, fiscally responsible, and accountable for its actions is difficult to understand. Which part of that formula do you disagree with partially or in total.
Transparency of action allowed the entire community to weigh in on whether or not we should rent our public facilities to an organization wishing to teach a class on the United States Constitution.
Transparency in government allowed the public to weigh in on whether or not we should investigate the possibility of a charter school in this district.(This was just an investigation of the idea's pros and cons mind you, the union and its supporters vehemently opposed any such search for answers)
Fiscal Responsibility means we are not slaves to wave after wave of levy campaigns demanding more money, more money, ever more money.
Fiscal Responsibility translates to we learn to live within our means rather than our wants and desires.
Accountability allows the community that pays this bill some semblance of control holding public employees and elected officials responsible for the good and the bad.
Accountability is bringing the days of "Oh well, that just the way it is" to a close, as people and officials are held responsible for their actions.
What do you find so offensive about those concepts?
