Throw enough money at Johnny and surely he’ll read

This is the title of my NMI column that ran yesterday.  Normally it runs on Tuesdays, but they ran it early.  I wanted to leave the Allen Weh interview as the top story on Monday, so I did not link to the column until today.

Coincidentally, a commenter on the Weh interview linked to his blog post casting doubt on the standard Republican platform of lower taxes and smaller government:

Look, if you want less government and lower taxes, it means you’re not going to work at solving the DWI problem and the low academic achievement in the public schools. And all the other problems that people expect government to solve.

For my rebuttal regarding education, please read my new NMI column.  For my thoughts on DWI, see an NMI column I wrote a couple of months ago.

Later this week, I’m packing up all the kids and heading for a short vacation with two of my best girlfriends and their children, so you may be reading less politics and more posts like this and this.  Or you may not be reading anything at all, if I can’t get the wireless internet to work or if I spend too much time playing Risk with the kids.

    Nearly all of my article, excluding all sorts of linkage:

    I have been all over this bovine byproduct for some time now. Let me be clear for the leftists who occasion this site, Obama, liberals, the NEA (education version), the AFT have no interest in real education. Many teachers who are in those unions I listed are, indeed interested in real education, but the unions themselves are not. The Head Cheeses at the public skools are not interested in real education but rather their own egos and liberal indoctrination.

    It is a fact private Christian schools outscore public schools. It is also a fact home-school outscores private school. But liberals fight both private Christian schools and home-schools all the way to the courts and beyond. Some liberals will even get on blogsites that show this proof and loudly proclaim that Republicans (as if Republicans meant conservatives, despite all the evidence to the contrary) don’t care about educating children.

    Some goof-ball will claim I have only been talking about it this year, but the truth is I have only been blogging this year. If you follow the links below, you will naturally see I have been all over it for a couple decades, and with actions, not merely words.

    I hope you find material of value here. I have multiple links in my other articles, and link-surfing is a good idea. Secondary and tertiary links are good things.

    There’s even information covering the Republican-Conservative disconnect that every liberal refuses to see.

    Thank you, Foxfier, for linking to this site. And thank you, Mrs Russell, for your hard work at getting information out in print.
