HOW MANY TIMES,

must taxpayers pay for an individual to learn?

We have taxpayer dollars going to:

K-12 systems,

Home schooling,

Vouchers,

Charter schools,

Intermediate school systems, and yet again, one more time...

bay college

is syphoning more taxpayers dollars

in yet another attempt to educate losers!

How do we educate THEE?

Let’s count the ways,

Once

Twice,

Thrice,

Four or more,

Will it never ever end?

Quote 'the raven' never!

HOW MANY TIMES,

must taxpayers

CREATE ANOTHER

ALTERNATIVE EDUCATIONAL DELIVERY SYSTEM

for those individuals who REFUSE to conform to what is considered a NORMAL EDUCATIONAL DELIVERY method?

It is TIME, that these people accept the NORMAL EDUCATIONAL DELIVERY system, and conform to ONE SYSTEM,

PERIOD.

For years, taxpayers have coddled those who refuse to adopt to standard educational systems.

Why ?

EXACTLY !

Don’t you know,

it always works this way….

"Take-a way’s"

are ALWAYS, political in nature, and affect the most people directly involved.

If boards and politicians TAKE-AWAY from the people who use and benefit the most,

the feeling is that wage-earners and taxpayers will respond with

MORE MONEY

MORE TAXES

to keep the system “going”.

Wouldn’t you just know it ?

On nearly on the same day, the Escanaba school system administration and board announced

ANOTHER NEW PROGRAM,

all-the-while, they announce

"take-away’s"

for the majority of the students!

And, For yet ANOTHER WAY to “educate” those individuals that ignored previous taxpayer attempts to educate them.

We have enough AT-RISK kids to supply ALL OF THE FAST FOOD JOINTS in the U.S. who could speak ENGLISH,

and our congress would not have to keep raising visa quotas for aliens to populate these FAST FOOD JOINTS.

Every AT-RISK KID, would at least, be assured a job for LIFE in the FAST FOOD JOINTS.

It wasn’t too many years ago, that U.S. public schools’

ALTERNATIVE EDUCATION consisted of the ‘Manual Trades”,

and schools were well equipped to turn-out needed and useful citizens, who could work and build this country, and not "thumbing" their way through life playing video games, twit'ng, and facing.

Over NINE times the amount of educating our youth EVERY YEAR, is spent on eating in FAST FOOD JOINTS.

With that kind of spending, we should be educating AT RISK kids TO LEARN the FAST FOOD JOINT work ethic.

EVERY

AT RISK KID,

Should ONLY BE ALLOWED to learn the FAST FOOD TRADE, for their life work.

Maybe, these AT RISK KIDS would soon get the message GRAB what taxpayers spend on you for education, the FIRST TIME AROUND,

or their ALTERNATIVE EDUCATION would

be relegated to learning the FAST FOOD JOINT trade, as their means of livelihood .

At Risk.

How many times have we listened to this mantra.

The rich and corporations has put EVERYONE of us in the "AT RISK" category today.

What should be done to preserve the family is teach kids how to maintain a lifetime work etiquette at the fast-food joints.

Nation-wide in the U.S.

just over $84 billion dollars, each year,

is served-up by taxpayers for k-12 public education on its young.

Nation-wide in the U.S.

OVER $545 BILLION DOLLARS

is spent each year on

FAST

FOOD.

This amounts to just 'change' over $1.25 BILLION DOLLARS in spending on FAST FOOD each day, on average, for the calendar year.

Thank you, froggy, for taking six posts to once again remind us that every problem in this country is the fault of the rich and corporations. Too bad the Soviet Union is no more, it sounds like that would have been a more enjoyable place for you to live. You might want to check out Cuba. Gotta go now -- time to go grab a burger and fries!

Bravesprock,

Wasn’t it you and your rich republican friends who

OUTSOURCED our jobs a few years ago,

and wasn’t it those same people who pressed congress to increase visas so

rich republican and democratic businesses

could have more CHEAP LABOR, and force legal Americans to remain unemployed?

Bravesrock,

As you grab your fast food fat-burger,

(can’t you cook or doesn’t your wife cook),

think about the millions of mediocre jobs you’re providing to our future college graduates.

BTW, maybe you could receive some form of “continuing ALTERNATIVE education” to learn how to flip burgers as a future occupation?

Bravesock,

Have you heard of the “Slow-Food-Movement”, it might proloooooooong your ‘life’.

Look it up!

BraveNOt,

You think and write like a true republican business type…

“if you don’t like the way we rich republicans and corporations rule and dictate, leave the country,

Otherwise ,STFU, and pay your taxes for us!”
