    Education had its chance

    Unbelievable. You want to talk about a black hole for money, talk about the general fund.

    Maybe we should stop spending money on road repairs; we are getting more and more potholes. Maybe we should stop spending money on the war on drugs; drug use is up more than ever. Maybe we should stop eating; we could get the obesity epidemic under control. Maybe we should stop thinking while we are at it, then we wouldn’t need education either.

    Maybe we should stop spending money, period; we are getting further and further in debt.

    I believe we should do away with the idea that you can get rich quick and easy. I believe we should start a state bank and do away with the lottery.
