Nope. Jones Street Republicans will not be joining Drew Carey on the stage. (The union thugs won’t let them.)
The drivebys have swamped us with lovey-dovey coverage of the union thug-orchestrated “Red for Ed” march on Raleigh. Your little skulls full of mush got a day off while their teachers romped around downtown Raleigh poor-mouthing anything and anyone with an ‘R’ next to their name.
It certainly was amazing to see all of the poor grammar and math on display during the march. It certainly can take the wind out of the sails of your demands for a pay raise when your protest signs read like they were created by someone who no habla inglés. (Or at least not very much inglés.)
Legislative Republicans had a cram session to prepare for the marchers. Senate president Phil Berger sent out this tweet:
Wow. A TWO BILLION DOLLAR increase over eight years.
On one hand, stuff like this does a great job of shining a light on the LIES being forced on us by Wayne Goodwin and his friends at WRAL and The N&O. On the other hand, it caves to the idea that MO’ MONEY is always the best answer. How about some forensic audits to see if all of this appropriated money actually gets to where it is supposed to go? How about some actual oversight to ensure bureaucrats are not monkeying around with money meant for the classrooms?
Here in Moore County, we keep adding $100,000 administrators. Heck, we have so many we had to create a second central office. NONE OF THOSE PEOPLE do one iota to educate your kids. Not a one.
A good chunk of the spending decisions on public ed happens with your local county commissioners, your local school board, and your local schools administrative offices. It’s interesting they are getting ZERO heat on this discussion.
Take note, Republicans. You give them this money and they STILL march against you and threaten to vote you out in November. You can’t buy their love. So, STOP TRYING.
