Will someone please please review what the Dept. of Ed. is doing for us other than washing money and skimming 5% off the top.

A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury.  From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship.

The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations has been 200 years.  Great nations rise and fall.  The people go from bondage to spiritual truth, to great courage, from courage to liberty, from liberty to abundance, from abundance to selfishness, from selfishness to complacency, from complacency to apathy, from apathy to dependence, from dependence back again to bondage.

Is this not what appears to be happening?  Where is our Howard Beale?

Welcome.

Hello and welcome.

I’ve chosen WordPress as a blogging tool because it’s generally fast and easy to setup and I don’t have a lot of time at the moment.  So little in fact that I’m off to let the dogs out and then head to bed.

Where Am I?
