Public Education = A Victim Of Tax Dollar Theft by Politicians


Recommended Posts

Politicians on all sides should know by now what the taxpayers want for their public education system. If they do not know perhaps these reckless representatives have not been paying attention....... imagine that.

 

 

The taxpayers want whatever the original formula was reinstated. Taxpayers have been supporting that formula for decades which indicates they were willing to continue doing so. This funding has been among the few best investments ever in American history. Which explains why so many countries adopted the USA method for teaching their children. Yes this USA approach has been respected for many many decades. Bring it back and fund it without question.

It has never been anywhere near a simple majority of taxpayers requesting a change.

 

 

It is politicians making the changes based on a personal agenda established by the American Legislative Exchange Council /ALEC which has pushed education vouchers, which use public funds to pay for private schools, for years. Our nation spends about $500 billion in local, state and federal funds on public schools.

 

There are white collar thieves who look at our investment in public education and they see a treasure chest for their bank accounts.

The above does not warrant legislative changes hosted by ALEC because those changes have never been approved by the voters which should be a mandate.

There you have it... Republicans trying to dumb down the population so they'd vote for their candidates.

 

It is not even that. It is a scam based on greed. Buy some buildings, rent them to your "nonprofit" school, hire uncertified, underqualified teachers for peanuts, and pay your accomplices a fortune to run the place.

Republicans do not care about the next generations. They want the big bucks NOW!

"This is an expansive, rib-tickling, and subversive comedy in which Moore, playing the role of 'invader,' visits a host of nations to learn how the U.S. could improve its own prospects".[13] The nations he visits are Italy, France, Finland, Slovenia, Germany, Portugal, Norway, Tunisia, and Iceland; respectively, the subjects covered are worker benefits, school lunches, early education, college education, worker inclusion, decriminalized drugs, low recidivism, women's health care, and women inclusion. These countries and supporting facts are listed on the film's website.[14]

The countries and topics in order of appearance:

Moore points out at the end that many of these ideas actually originated in the U.S., such as the constitutional ban on cruel and unusual punishment, abolition of the death penalty, the struggle for the 8 hour day and the May Day holiday, the Equal Rights Movement for women, prosecution of financial fraud during the savings and loan crisis, etc.

Italy, France, Finland, Slovenia, Germany, Portugal, Norway, and Tunisia adopted USA gidelines for teaching their children and are appalled at how the politicians are destroying such a wonderful opportunity to engage the minds of young people. The USA image is on the line.

"hire uncertified, under qualified teachers" - yes this is true. ALEC governors are dumping credentials and healthy lunches in the toilet in favor of unqualified teaching staff.

 

When thousands upon thousands upon thousands of teachers lose their jobs think about the impact on locals economies

which demonstrates the people calling themselves republicans are really the ALEC Dumb Shit Party.

Koch Brothers Exposed documentary began as a series of 13 two- to twelve-minute viral videos intended to portray David and Charles Koch’s negative impact on a variety of aspects of American life.

The billionaire Koch Brothers have been described as “the poster boys of the 1 percent.” Their conglomerate, Koch Industries, is one of the largest private firms in the nation, with estimated annual revenues in the range of $100 billion. Liberal organizations argue that their extraordinary wealth and overwhelming political influence harm many progressive causes, such as the environment, education, campaign finance, and labor rights.

Some of the alleged wrongdoing highlighted in the film includes:

  • Efforts to gut Social Security. Spending more than $28 million, the Kochs have funded hundreds of reports, commentaries and books which popularized the fiction that Social Security is on the brink of collapse.
  • Attempts at re-segregation. The film reports on Koch-funded efforts to remake a North Carolina school district’s diversity policy, in effect re-segregating the schools.
  • Voter Suppression. Koch money has supported voter ID laws in 38 states. These laws are billed as a way to avoid voter fraud, but the film argues that they are actually intended to make it more difficult for Democrats to vote.
  • Keystone XL. The Kochs use their influence to sway legislation regarding the Keystone XL pipeline. Koch Industries has a significant financial interest in this oil and gas project.
  • Cancer in Crosset. A Koch paper plant pollutes the air and water of a community in Arkansas. The film explores a link with a cancer cluster in the small African-American community.
  • Higher Education. The Kochs give millions of dollars to universities, with the stipulation that the schools must hire Koch-sympathetic professors.

Robert Greenwald attempts to evoke a visceral reaction from his viewers by telling the stories of individuals whose lives have been harmed by Koch activities. Regarding this film, he is quoted as saying, “You reach the heart first. What I always try to do is make the political personal."

Is it true that the trust fund is just a bunch of government IOUs and therefore worthless?

The trust fund does just contain IOUs, but they're not worthless. If they are, someone should tell that to the very smart and very rich people who bought $475 billion in government bonds last year to finance the deficits President Bush and Congress created, and to the central banks of Japan, China, and many other countries that hold a large share of their assets in U.S. government bonds.

When the trust fund was created in 1935, the law stipulated that any excess revenues coming into the Social Security system must be used to purchase federal government bonds. (At the time, the stock market had just lost over 75% of its value and was understood to be unsafe.) Federal bonds are absolutely safe; the government of the United States has never defaulted on any bond obligation.
