"Atlas Shrugged" was a Warning, not a Manual: When private money belongs to the public

You know, when you start looking for it this stuff is happening everywhere, every day of the week.

There's a long story behind this one, in which the Wake County (NC) government school system decided that discriminating against kids and their parents based on economic status was wrong. Major local media outlet thinks that wrong is right, and is now complaining that some parent-teacher organizations are helping their associated schools more than others are helping theirs.

Note to socialists everywhere: This is why we work and strive to be successful--so that we can do these things. This is opposed to your ethic, where you steal from us and use it to buy favor in quarters where people do not strive. Beware of the outcome when we decide that we are tired of being stolen from and decide to act on that decision.

To those parents with children in the "rich" schools, a thought. If you can afford to do this, why not put that money to work and put your kids in a private school instead?

What a bunch of idiots. They never really understand how their statements illustrate that they just hate successful people. They have a pathological need to take money from those that have it and give it to people who haven't earned it.

The government has been mismanaging the economy for many decades - it shouldn't "manage" the economy at all - and fiat currency is showing its badnesses right now in dramatic relief. Paper money penalizes savings, and allows bubbles like the education bubble. Government should get out of the education business; when they did that in African countries, education improved radically.
