"30 billion to teach English as a Second Language and 5 billion for firefighters and cops."

File Under: The Inane Crony Spending Priorities Will Continue Until Teachers Unions Are Paid Off:
Preventing Layoffs of Teachers, Cops and Firefighters: The President is proposing to invest $35 billion to prevent layoffs of up to 280,000 teachers, while supporting the hiring of tens of thousands more and keeping cops and firefighters on the job. These funds would help states and localities avoid and reverse layoffs now, requiring that funds be drawn down quickly. Under the President’s proposal, $30 billion be directed towards educators and $5 billion would support the hiring and retention of public safety and first responder personnel. "I'm going to go out on a limb here but we need firefighters and cops a lot more than we need to put more unemployed philosophy majors to the task of teaching the unteachable so they can join a union and vote Democrat." -- Daniel Greenfield

I think you meant to say "Via a farti FROTTERE...which makes more sense, I'm sure you'll agree.

The destroyers have us speaking in their language even as we disparage the exact form. Nice trick.

If congress can employ money indefinitely to the general welfare, and are the sole and supreme judges of the general welfare..they may appoint teachers in every state, county, and parish and pay them out of their public treasury; they may take into their own hands the education of children, establishing in like manner schools throughout the Union; they may assume the provision of the poor..in short, everything, from the highest object of state regulation down to the most minute objects of police, would be thrown under the power of Congress..Were the power of Congress to be established in the latitude contended for, it would subvert the very foundations, and transmute the very nature of limited Government established by the people of America.

Jewel, my hear was in the right place, and I know the words, but unfortunately, spelling has been my weak point, even in English. Thank you. You are right, it does make more sense.
