We have an election in our town next week. There is no Republican Party in our town. Democrats run unopposed. God help us.
I’ll be there, though, to vote against a public question: the school board’s “Proposal for Additional Funds.” Let me give it to you from the ballot.
“Resolved that there shall be raised an additional $700,000.00 for General Funds in the 2019-2020 School Year. These taxes will be used exclusively to provide a district wide Mental Health/Emotional Support Program, including appropriate staff and services, intervention, professional development, benefits and related costs. Approval of these taxes will result in a permanent increase in the district’s tax levy. These proposed additional expenditures are in addition to those necessary to achieve the New Jersey Student Learning Standards.”
Now, what do you want to bet the poor ignorant voters approve this freakin’ thing? The school district already got its budget passed, but now they want more money–$700 G’s.
Something about this vaguely-worded proposal cries out “Mischief!” Whom will they decide needs “mental health intervention”? Who needs their “emotional support,” and why? What kind of support? And so on.
Educators can’t be trusted. Why do they get to take our money, then go ahead and hire anyone they please to teach our children whatever commie crapola they wish? And why are we so supine, as to submit to this? Sheesh, all King George wanted was a stamp tax, and we ran him right out of America for it.
Let me be blunt. My strong suspicion is that this money will be used to promote and advance transgenderism. But people don’t want to know that, because then they’d have to come up with some reason for leaving their kids in those schools.
If our civilization ever collapses, on its tombstone will be written, “Educated themselves to death.”
