Public Boarding Schools: A Great Idea!

Because our government did such a great job helping those Indians out in the past, taking them away from their bad family environments.  They decimated their entire culture and family structure for the good of the children.   You know, to civilize them and all.  Let's try that one again, except with American children who need "a safe environment" (read: almost exclusively black and poor children).

    1. Sometimes I think we are doomed to repeat it anyway b/c we think we are somehow more moral than the rest of humanity, or we do things for the "right" reasons. Nope.

  2. Ooh, I dislike it when the government thinks it can solve all ills. It usually (that might be too mild of a word), finds a way to make things worse when it extends its benevolent hand to "help even more."

    As Daniel Webster said, "Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of authority. It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters."

    Oops, is my comment longer than the blog post?! Forgive me when I ramble. ;)

    1. No forgiveness needed! I'm always up for a good rant! I do them myself rather often. :)
