You know the left is out of ideas when they are reduced to Mr. Garon ranting about arms sales and Mr. Longhofer writing about when life begins at a time when the country is more interested in when jobs begin. Surprisingly enough in Mr. Garon’s rant there actually is something worth talking about. And that is education. In the world currently I think we are somewhere around 27th and 30th in science and math. This bodes ill for our future. The left spending us into national bankruptcy is the immediate problem but to survive in the future we must get educaton back on track. We need to spend more time teaching students the hard subjects needed to compete in the world and less timg teaching them how to feel good about themselves. President Obama awhile back asked Steve Jobs when the jobs he sent to China were coming back. He replied “they’re not!” The problem was he couldn’t find enough workers here capable of the manufacture of his high tech product. We need something like vouchers so that our schools will compete for excellence just as we must nationally compete for excelence if we are to prosper in the 21st century. The days of living on our past glory are over.
