What is with the anti-children political agenda going on across the country?

What do Republicans have against children? Why do they push laws to force women to have children then pass laws to harm those children, and not just at the state level but at the national level as well, by cutting funds for education, food stamps, health care, and anything else of social value?

To have witnessed a revolting fist-pumping celebration by a New Mexican Republican legislator for his victory over third-graders who arenít ready to learn to read by 3rd grade was an eye-opener. If someone had told me adults would celebrate such a victory I wouldnít have believed it -- but I saw it with my own eyes!

At the moment, 3rd grade retention is an iconic right-wing red-meat political issue, part of a larger strategy to privatize public education nationally. Public schools in Kansas are closing early because of a $51 million funding short-fall caused by the Governorís budget cuts and tax breaks for businesses that themselves caused a $1 billion shortfall in state revenues.

Children be damned -- we won! Yea Us! Remember Hitlerís little dance at the fall of Paris?

1. Republicans today just hate people

 

It's a wonder they can reproduce...without rape or other forms of force. I suppose the mind-slavery of religion...but the women! They are just as bad, if not worse!

2. Children are made for factories and factories

 

Are made for children. A popular quote from 1890 to 1910. That's what we are going back to.

In capitalism, everyone and every thing is fair game. If a capitalist can exploit it for cheap labor or profit, you can bet he will try. Turning the education of our children into just another profit center for a rich man, is how capitalism rolls.

To keep from turning every important function into a profit center, you are going to have to change your economic system.
