Letter to the editor: What part of 'No' don't you understand?
They say the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting to achieve different results. If this is true, then what does it say about our local school board?...

Its repeated attempts to shove this unpopular levy down our throats year after year, after year; reminds me of a song by Lorrie Morgan: "What part of 'No' don't you understand?"
I'll be glad to explain it, if it's too hard to comprehend. We don't want it! Some people oppose the levy for financial reasons, some for political reasons, some believe it's not needed, some feel it's unfair, and others simply oppose public indoctrination for moral or ethical reasons.
Proponents of the levy often use phrases like: It's for the children, let's join together for kids, we're building our future, or you can't put a price tag on education. The implication is, if you don't support the levy, you don't care about kids, you don't value education, and you're not concerned about the future.
This type of rhetoric imputes evil motives toward anyone who dare oppose the referendum. What arrogance. These intolerant yuppies sit on their high perches looking down on the rest of us, believing they know better than us peasants what's best for all children.
I, unlike many on the other side, don't attribute evil motives to all who support public indoctrination. It's only a small minority who promote this secular socialistic agenda, unfortunately it's these radicals who are in charge of the curriculum. The majority are simply sheep following blindly out of ignorance, unaware that the NEA and teacher's unions have a liberal agenda. It's a huge money laundering scheme. Unions collect dues from the indoctrinators. Politicians (mainly Democrats) receive huge campaign donations from the unions, in exchange they promise indoctrinators increased wages, benefits, and pensions, along with tenure. Indoctrinators then spread this socialistic, atheistic, liberal propaganda to the students; which has left this generation with a lopsided, leftist view of the world, making public education a guaranteed assembly line for mass-market production of new liberal voters. Tenure allows poor teachers to keep their jobs. Tenure makes it almost impossible to fire a teacher.
