THIS JUST IN: SANTORUM IS FUCKING BATSHIT

From the Des Moines Register:
Former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum criticized early education programs on Tuesday as an effort to “indoctrinate your children,” adding that parents, not federal bureaucrats, must be responsible for the success of students.

. . . .

“It is a parent’s responsibility to educate their children. It is not the government’s job. We have sort of lost focus here a little bit. Of course, the government wants their hands on your children as fast as they can. That is why I opposed all these early starts and pre-early starts, and early-early starts. They want your children from the womb so they can indoctrinate your children as to what they want them to be. I am against that,” he said.

It's getting harder and harder to respond to the santorum that comes out of Santorum's mouth. It's kind of like arguing with my friend Joel, who thinks that 9/11 was an inside job. There is no amount of logic or evidence one can provide that will dissuade a person from holding such unreasonable beliefs. If you want to believe that the government flew remote-controlled planes into the World Trade Center, or that Head Start is an effort to brainwash young people, I really can't stop you.

But come the fuck on, you can't hold that kind of belief while running for president. Cuz then you'd be part of the system, man. You'd be one of them. If you want to be an anarchist, go for it, but there is no such thing as an anarchist president. Gosh.

  3. your disdain for personal responsibility is gross. Why don't you try reading a fucking book with your kid and joining the PTA. Education needs to be addressed in the home and locally in your community, . Not by Washington,

  4. Do you know who benefits from head start? Poor children. Immigrant children. Lucky assholes like Rick (and ColieMarie) have the money to put their young children into the preschool of their choice, or the knowledge/time/resources to indoctrinate them at home. Not everyone has that luxury. What you get then is hoards of first graders who don't know their shapes, how to write their names, or how to count to ten. Public education is for building an educated society. If you don't need it, bully for you. You have other options. But take it away from everyone, and you have officially become no better than the Tea Party, espousing regressive, community-destroying policy.
