MBM: IF vouchers cause school funding to be reduced once these children depart the school then what say you about the drive by Rep Kendred Meeks to impose smaller class sizes upon public schools that will require many, many new schools to be constructed? IF there are less pupils at these original public schools DO YOU FIGURE THAT THEIR FUNDING WILL BE CUT and thus YOU ARE IN STRONG OPPOSITION TO MEEK'S drive......RIGHT? (That is if you follow logic).

First who is Kendred Meeks. Funny that there are NO citations for that person in all of Google. Second, most schools are built with a combination of local, state, and federal funding hence your assumption that building schools somehow reduces per student funding does not necessarily apply. Third, even if per student funding decreased, lowering the teacher/student ratio in some instances might overcome the reduced funding. This is particularly the case when it is part of a planned, strategic...

Have you gone elitist on me now? True. Capitalism doesn't sound that bad in Adam Smith's original envisionment of it. Adam Smith, although a capitalist, was actually pretty socialistic in heart in many of his views.

However, he also distrusted the people, he believed that capitalism could be properly used by "enlightened statesmen" and "philosopher...
