Not long ago, one bread winner could support a family, put the children through college, and have enough savings left over to comfortably retire. But then a funny thing happened on the road to serfdom. Suddenly there was a “sexual revolution” and before you knew it both parents were in the workforce, both paying income tax, both struggling to survive. And in all this, their children increasingly became wards of the State. How fortuitous for the oligarchs, hellbent on world domination?
Which leads me to today’s news. In Nazi York, under the rule of Führer Bloomberg, a pilot program is set to begin in middle schools under the auspices of combating abysmal failures in such basics as reading. It calls for an additional 2 ½ hours of incarceration per day. I kid you not. While there are homeschoolers sending their children to college by the age of 12, the State is bamboozling the booboisie into thinking this will do anything but make their kids better Prussian soldiers. Not surprising, most tax-slaving parents, happy to have a babysitter, are “on board.”
