Well, the tax cuts should be more and permanent.  We should also reduce spending by getting rid of whole government departments, starting with the Department of Education.
Right. Congress will have to do that.

Reagan promised to eliminate the D of E when he was running for President in the last Century.

Lobbyists lobby hard to have more money funneled through the Dept. of E... To them.

Teachers unions are primary culprits of this, and the U.S. Department of Education is still with us.

"The Department of Education is administered by the United States Secretary of Education. It has under 4,000 employees (2018)[1] and an annual budget of $68 billion (2016).[2]"

It's most likely that no one can account for where all the money goes.

We know where it comes from though!

Right on Ruby! Sickler isn't interested in making any sense, he's more involved with talking to his pistachios when he's drugged up and drunk. Use your wits and kick his ass for him. You're getting a chance to get a little bit even.

I'll be here to help you. if you can get a 'fooch' out of him then you'll know you've got him backing up.

Actually Ruby, it's the parents responsibility. If they decline to accept their responsibility, family and friends and charities will usually step in. (Unless everybody is busy fighting over who gets to pick the dump, like in Venezuela...)

If no one does, it's better to leave it up to the children themselves than to put them in the hands of the state.

Well Ruby, it turns out that you won! That is, if you want to accept the win. It's obviously both the parents' responsibililty and the state's responsibility to ensure that the children are educated.

Imagine leaving it up to the children? What a stupid hateful piece of shit Craig can be sometimes!

That means that if the parents fail to allow their children to be educated then the state has the responsibility to force the parents to do the right thing. However, force is always a last resort and I'm sure that was your intent.

So accept your win and conclude with me that Craig is nothing but a useless contrarian who knows what's right but needs constant attention.

I'm getting to like you Ruby. Would you consider losing weight and wearing a paper bag. Nawwww, just kiddin on the paper bag.

Is Craig pouting today? He's usually making all sorts of stupid comments over my logical replies. I think he's in a playful mood but not quite sure to say that doesn't make him look even stooooopider?

If he was in his hate mode he would have something nasty to say about Venequela or Cuba or Vietnamese people. Maybe even go over the line into one of his racist tirades?

You want me to mention The Slants again, and how they won their case against the Copyright bureaucrats and were allowed to call themselves The Slants?

OK, I did. It's a good illustration of how bureaucracies stooopidddlllyyy regulate individual liberty in the name of job security for them.

The bureaucrats who wrongly denied The Slants  from calling themselves what they freely chose to call themselves suffered not at all.

Bureaucrats who might have approved the band name The Slants would likely have lost their jobs for approving such a non PC name as The Slants. That would prove they were racist in PC eyes and that would make them unfit to work in a bureaucracy. Individuals are not appreciated in bureaucracies.

True, it is the parents' responsibility to make sure their children get educated, but the states have the responsibility to provide the money for that education to those who can't afford it.  Maybe that's a way I'm socialist, but I want kids to be educated no matter their economic status.  In fact, I think education is key to solving government dependency.

Local school boards make those decisions.

Usually they decide it will benefit the community to educate every child who lives there.

I've said I think that's a good idea, even if the children's parents are illegal.

You complain that the children of illegal people are too much of a burden to educate and should be left to form street gangs until maybe some bureaucrats get around to deporting them.

States are obligated to not rape and plunder the locals (their citizens), so that the locals can afford to educate their own children, or not.

When you start "obligating" State and Federal bureaucracies to make decisions and accomplish good things, they always start demanding that you send them most of your money so that they can do it... And then they don't.

It's best to keep both the money and the decision making power as local as possible... The ideal for close locality is the individual.

Let the parents have control.

The children of illegals shouldn't be here at all.  I already posted an article about illegals rounded up just recently, they were working for a landscaping company in Ohio, and were arrested for identity theft and tax evasion.  Illegals have to steal other people's social security numbers or work under the table.  Working under the table means they're not paying the income taxes the rest of us have to pay.  You think they're a net benefit to us?  They're not.  They pay little in taxes and get free healthcare and education.  We need to save the money we spend on them for our own legal poor people.  Let Mexico try to solve its own poverty problems instead of unburdening their poor on us.
