The August 11 editorial, “School board can’t make it better” states that the FWISD board’s decision to pay for unauthorized work by students “taught…a devastatingly harmful lesson.”
That lesson? “When life hands you a raw deal…don’t worry. You won’t suffer long. The people who control the public purse strings will jump in and make it better.”
It’s not the first time they’ve heard that. Many Democrat politicians use that very message as their central campaign promise in every election. From President to dogcatcher as Bud Kennedy might say. And the extortion aspect isn’t new, either. Just ask Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton.
