The war of the rich on education to keep the poor down.

I think as we have consecutive years of attacks on the education budgets of Canada and the United States you have to wonder why do people not want to fund education? I think it is because there is no money in education. Yes you need an education to make the big bucks but only a few people need that. After that they build their wealth on the backs of the poor. How do you keep people poor? You keep them from being educated. Continuing to cut funds to public education that will prepare people to challenge the powers who control everything will continue to keep the poor poor. Private schools are not accessible to most of the poor. Rich people can get their kids into private schools and great universities. Without assistance from government funds be it loans or a well funded education system the poor will have larger and larger walls built to keep them from attaining their dreams.

People do not understand that Jesus would not have been a Republican

Or a conservative. Jesus was all about helping the poor and kids. Look at the role the conservative governments have played lately. In Canada we have education and child care programs taking a beating through lack of funding. We have people saying we need to cut aid to the poor and increase breaks for the rich. Do not even get me started on how many, i am sure not all, but many conservative people speak about their religious superiority and how great the love of god is while trying to think of more and more ways to make individuals different from them feel even less human (see Utah state bill). I think it is time that conservative people stop saying they need to save the souls of those who are wayward and start thinking who's soul is really in jeopardy.

New Year Resolutions

1. Loose Weight
2. Continue being a kick ass teacher
3. Convince people that just because others are different does not mean they are wrong or evil.
4. Convince crazy old people at my church that Muslims are indeed not trying to take over the world.

That is all for now i think.
