The Raging Elephant
It's obvious you believe this garbage, so I'm not going to say anything other than I'm glad that it seems your time and political action are directed towards the Internet instead of actual involvement in institutions.

Because you know so much about me?

I actually put my money where my mouth is.

After graduating from a public university and getting nowhere with its worthless degree, I went to a private trade school and got a job that increased my salary by 160%, and now I put my kids in a private school.

I also contribute to private school scholarship funds, the NRA, and campaign for libertarian politicians.

But nice to know there will always be liberals around to try and belittle me and my achievements when I present them with logical arguments and facts.

Oh, and I believe this “garbage”, because it’s truth. There are facts and evidence to support it. I make decisions using my brain, not my heart. Stop feeling and start thinking. You’ll do humanity a big favor. All these big-hearted liberal programs like public education, universal healthcare, the war on drugs, gun control, welfare, etc. not ONE of them has successfully accomplished their stated goals.

Another "conservative" unable to understand education being in the hands of corporate power and being for profit is far more dangerous than it being a public institution.

Which is why private school test scores are so bad, and have such high dropout levels.

Oh wait, that’s the public schools.

There’s a simple solution to the appalling state of the educational system I this country. You give all the tax revenue that funds the schools back to the people who earned it, privatize education completely, and let people send their kids where it’s best for them. (AKA School Vouchers, so low income families could afford the same education as high income. Acceptance would solely be based on supply and demand)

Humanity flourished and grew for thousands of years without the government telling them what to learn and where to go to learn it. In fact, homeschooling was the prevalent means of education throughout most of history, and thanks to the state of govt schools, is on the rise again. This narrow-minded belief that the government MUST be involved at every level is very, VERY recent, and not coincidentally correlates with the drop in educational levels.

Ridiculous school lunch programs like the OP are the result of people reacting to govt mandates. Are they bad reactions? Of course. But if the mandate wasn’t there in the first place, they might be able to serve something that was filling and kids would eat.

And as evidence, I submit that when I was in HS back in the mid 90’s, we got Our choice of Subway, Pizza Hut, or Taco Bell food for lunch every day as an option. (There was also the ubiquitous “cafeteria” food.)

It was cheaper for the schools, and the kids loved it. And *SHOCKER* we didn’t all turn into Fatty McFattersons with diabetes like the Libs would have us believe.

I'm not sure what the relevance of your comment was. I'm aware that school districts are a public institution, and I'm also aware that nutritional funding is not set by the president, nor his wife. And I'm not sure if you know this, but teacher unions didn't make congress set school lunch standards low. You and your pro-privatization/anti-union tripe can stay away from education and everything else, including my blog, thanks.

Another lib incapable of understanding how government control of education is ruining it.

Meanwhile, at the Federal Reserve.
The more money we circulate the wealthier people get.

The idiots decided they couldn’t spend the economy out of trouble.  Now they  think they can PRINT the economy out of trouble!

Why not?  It worked for The Weimar Republic!*sarcasm

Students Fed Up With Michelle Obama’s School Lunch Overhaul — Menu-Item Snapshots Spell Out Why

Wow that is depressing. 

okay but is that michelle’s fault for pushing for healtheir lunches or is it school districts’ faults for cutting corner by cutting calories but not making lunch any healthier?

let’s look into it.

^^^Agreed. She is trying. School boards aren’t.

This illustrates a lot of what is wrong with American awareness. Schools have less than a dollar to spend on food per student and the right wing blog that posted this probably doesn’t give a fuck that school nutritional programs being cut leads to this, they just wanted to take any opportunity possible to slam the opposition.

School districts…also run by government. (And unions…)

Those people who hold themselves out to be patriots are not. They’re nothing more than domestic terrorists … I repeat: what went on up there was domestic terrorism.

Harry Reid describing supporters of rancher Cliven Bundy (via rightsided)

So…when are we domestic terrorists going to tar, feather and toss Harry Reid’s ass out of office?

after looking at stupid political arguments on Tumblr, felt like making these.

This gif set pleases me.

I appreciate this blog and I respect you from your commentary. It was a pleasure to come across this blog. Most people my age look down on Republicans but can never give me a valid reason why. Have a great day!

You’ve probably heard the quote “If you’re not a liberal when you’re 25, you have no heart.  If you’re not a conservative by the time you’re 35, you have no brain.”  It’s usually attributed to Churchill, but I don’t think he ever said it.  It’s a makes sense though generally for many people.

I was not a liberal at 25. I was never a liberal. I guess I’ve always just used my brain.
