A Voice of Reason

I say, these internets are a great source of inspiration.  Why just today I was perusing the Gotham Schools blog thingie, and I found a parent willing to speak up against the involvement of parents.  The chap called himself “Dissenter,” and was willing to give up the popular notion that anyone but the moneyed class should take part in the education of the urchins that blight our fair city.

Now if only more rabble would share that view, we’d be able to get even more of the cheap labor our city needs.  I was thrilled, truth be told, and I’m sharing my response below in its entirety:

I agree with this Dissenter chap. Why on earth should the bootless and unhorsed have any say whatsoever in the education of their children? Rabble need to be guided with a firm hand, and Mikey Bloomberg is just the man to do it, by Jove.

I also agree it’s union chicanery, and this Randi Weingarten woman is only pretending to support Mikey, while in secret she’s plotting to ask for more money for those awful teachers, who are always blathering on about one thing or another. Frankly, they make me ill with their demands of lower class sizes, and time off for this and that.

Fire them all, I say, and give them something to really complain about. And as for the rabble, we’ll train them to do what needs to be done. No more of this namby-pamby mollycoddling.

Hip Hip Hooray

And a large round of “attaboy” to fellow billionaire Patrick Byrne, chief executive of Overstock.com. After the voucher measure he financed went down to ignominious defeat, he called the referendum a state IQ test that the voters failed.

Bravo, Patty old boy. Why on earth should people like us have to shoulder the entire cost of education for our kids while the great rabble sends their spawn to the nearest available public schools at our expense? Why should we have to support their urchins and our own children as well?

Don’t those low-IQ Philistines know that the more money we have, the more money they will eventually have? It’s all about investment. While they may go out and squander their money on food, or rent, or whatever such individuals spend it on, we’ll invest the money in the economy, which will benefit everyone.

Cheers again to Patty for putting the billionaire point of view front and center! We need more like him!
