    Isn't it grand that corporatism has infiltrated every aspect of our lives? Advertising is everywhere. On the internet, on your cellphone, in the street, in sport venues, in festivals, in parades, on television and now in school. What am I missing? I'm sure I forgot something since it has penetrated it's greedy finger into virtually every part of this forsaken culture.

    Compared to whom? The bureaucrats and teachers unions who have done it their way for generations and have a 50% dropout rate to show for it?

    Well we do need to raise good little consumers since that is now what our economy is based on.
    Home Economics is now Home Shopping 101.

    A Ronald McDonald statue is in the caffeteria.
    And we have the B. Dalton Library, downloadable to your favorite brand of reading pad for a nominal fee.

    Why can't they just cut back to basic education drop all the extracarricular stuff and just educate the children.

    The 50% who drop out don't even show up for the "basic education" they have.

    Will that change just because the bad casserole gets bigger?

    So they drop out we should not try to in essence pay them to stay in school.
    Who would vote for the republicans in the future if we had no dropouts?

    Are the public school systems in large cities like Los Angeles run by Republicans?

    Of course not no self respecting republican would be cuaght dead with an acedemic degree. MBA's, Poly sci and broadcasting/communication degrees and such are for Republicans.


    Republicans won't teach our children but love to bitch and whine about how others do it.
