About what I think about today's happenings in schools, I have to say that you don’t fix what is not broke. We have groups out there who want to change how we learn and many of them want to take the shortcut by installing the use of computers in all classrooms. Folks, you need to learn the basics like reading, writing, math, and English. The computer use should be on the end and not the front of the educational experience. You don’t let the horse push the wagon, you have the horse pull the wagon. It is no secret what I feel about those who would one day attempt to take us down. They would do it through our children and our churches, and then our members of Congress.
Getting to the use of the taxpayer’s money collected every year: that is a low point that makes no noise, until we start using it for things that it was not intended to be for. Too many times we throw that money away because of the clause that you use it for something or you lose it. What is wrong with having a savings account with that taxpayer money where it can stay until it really is needed? Why put all these plants and those dangerous dividers in the street when there is not even enough room for two lanes? One day we will have an accident that prompt us to ask, "Why was that ever done?" And as time slips by so quick, we see more and more coming into the USA and reaping what is not theirs to have. We allow our own here in the USA to go without and at the same time allow those who should not be getting it preference over us with free housing, free medical attention, and jobs that should go to those who are citizens. I guess we learn what is right or wrong from experience, and that hurts.
