2. TAB puts its money in billboards rather than where it's mouth is

As a community college professor I am disgusted by the TAB billboard lunacy. Kudos to for taking these chamber idiots to task. He is correct about "the workhorse of the Texas higher education system" and challenging them to support investment in the system.

I will go you one more TAB, make sure that our secondary education system is fully funded as well.

I teach American and Texas history, as does my wife. We have some really great students. And then there are those who an barely write in English - their first language. I'm not talking about immigrants, I am referring to Anglo kids who have been brought up through a system that never asks them to think critically. To be fair, as I said, we have some really great students and a few of the best I have seen were actually dual credit students earning credit for high school AND college.

Dewhurst's latest ad in his campaign for the U.S. Senate talks about choking government. "It worked in Texas," he says. Well, they choked alright . . . and the education system in this state is gasping for air. For God's sake, get these Republicans out of the capitol and start electing members of the rational majority! Fully fund education at ALL levels.
