There is one point of confusion I have about the demand that the dummycrats have about the keeping the schools closed. President Trump says he will withhold money from the school systems that stay closed and the dummycrats, especially the teacher’s unions complain.
To my way of thinking, why would the schools need money if they remain closed?
It seems to me that the only people who suffer economically from this epidemic are those who don’t receive their checks from the government. Why should they be immune from all calamity.
During the downturn of 2008, I took a 10% cut in pay. Then later, I took another 5% cut. Then, later the company that I worked for, was no more. During all this time, others lost jobs. Others took cuts in pay. Yet, I don’t think one federal employee took a loss in pay. I don’t think one federal employee lost his job. Very likely, it was the same for the state and county governments. Indeed, I heard of many instances of teachers complaining of a lack in pay increases.
And now, they want money for closing schools? Really. Me thinks I smell something rotten.
If this be true in the K through 12 schools, I am sure it applies even more for the universities. All through the worst of the economic woes, the colleges kept increasing their tuitions yearly. It was as if, in some way, they decided they were privileged. Something tells me that someone should clean those old halls of ivy, all the way from the deepest basement to the top of the highest spire.
Then again, you and I both know that won’t happen. Only the colleges are immune to such things. When is the last time you heard of anyone suing a college for malpractice?
