Comments on The Belmont Club
"The lord of the flies"


No political unit larger than a Congressional district should be permitted to operate a public school. Vouchers should be granted to every parent. This should be fought out as a 13th Amendment issue. Government at the local level or state can set minimum standards and inspect that children receive some basic level of education. Government can also inspect to ensure the voucher recipients are not committing fraud or theft. Beyond that the government should stay out of education.

Someone said that the arabs had a saying, "If the Russians ever conquer Arabia then we will suffer from a shortage of sand."

Blacks are keenly aware that their children are treated like property held in involuntary servitude to the teacher’s unions. The 10th Amendment is a nonsyarter. Federal Judges either laugh at such suits or quietly dismiss them. Once I heard former Solicitar General Ted Olsen point that out at a Federalist Society meeting. Fighting the issue under the 13th and 14th Amendments simply makes more sense.
