Excellent Rant

Nothing that I wrote, but rather the one that Joan of Argghh! over at Primordial Slack wrote. It is excellent. An excerpt is below, but you really need to read the whole thing.

Hey, how come the NEA has no problem with how it's perceived by other people? How come lawyers don't fret about how they are perceived by other people? Why aren't our Congressmen concerned with how little we respect them? Why doesn't the MSM fall over in a dead faint because of how they are viewed?

I know the answer to this one! It's because they are IN and their detractors are OUT. They are proud of their accomplishments and their unity, no matter how many kids can't read, widows' pensions are devoured, imminent domains are confiscated or ficticious stories are produced and lives are ruined. But they won't extend that grace to their own country. It's a dysfunctional mindset on a deeply and seemingly irretrievable level.

Great education comes from healthy competition. Truly awful tenured professors and teachers at public schools can't get fired. More money will not fix that, and Obama is too much of a fucking Chicago politician --bought and paid for-- to buck the NEA or any other inbred group of union slackers.

The best education? Pain.
Again, that's just a taste; be sure to read the whole thing.
