Another casualty of the Left’s war on personal responsibility.
No wonder Dad is irate!
It’s always the unscripted moments that define a political campaign.
A man known to the national news media only as “Irate Dad” confronts Elizabeth Warren, mother superior of the giveaway state (Big enough to promise everything you want, strong enough to take away everything you’ve earned). The Democrat(ic) presidential candidate wants taxpayers to pick up $640 billion in student loans, thereby removing yet another brake on escalating college tuition costs, subsidizing grievance studies, creating another dependent class, and making fools of people who pay their debts.
What part of ‘Free’ does he not understand?
A man who appears to be in his late 40s approaches candidate Elizabeth Warren in Grimes, Iowa:
IRATE DAD: “I just want to ask you one question. My daughter’s getting out of school. I’ve saved all my money. She doesn’t have any student loans.”
WARREN: [nods] “God bless you.”
IRATE DAD: “Am I going to get my money back?”
WARREN: “Of course not.”
IRATE DAD: “So you’re going to pay for people who didn’t save any money and those of us who did the right thing get screwed. My buddy had fun, bought a car, went on vacations. I saved my money. He made more than I did, but I worked a double shift, worked extra. My daughter’s worked since she was 10. So, you’re laughing at me.”
IRATE DAD: “That’s exactly what you’re doing. We did the right thing and we get screwed.”
WARREN: “Thank you for your thoughts.”
⇒ Ms. Warren, tell your campaign staff to put Irate Dad down as a Maybe.
MSNBC, CNN, NPR, the New York Times, and Public Television did NOT cover this story.
If kids know better why are they stealing cars?
Of the three finalists for district superintendent, the Madison Board of Education chose the right one, Matthew Gutierrez of a small, 7,000-student district in Seguin, Texas (a suburb of San Antonio). (MMSD is almost four times larger.) But dammit to heck, “what set Gutierrez apart” from the other three “was his interest in student input and voice.” That’s how the WI State Journal quoted school board president Gloria Reyes. (Detect a pattern here?)
How about a superintendent who tells students to listen to their teachers?
We’re in the money — The Legislative Fiscal Bureau is projecting state revenues will be $818 million higher than expected, bringing the rainy day fund to more than $1 billion. Democrats want to spend it on “unmet needs.”
“While Democrats will likely try to spend every cent, Republicans will make sound fiscal decisions and return surplus dollars to the people who earn them,” says Assembly Speaker Robin Vos. Detect a pattern here?
Couch Coach Blaska’s Foul Ball — Miller Park will become American Family Field. (Certain to be shortened to AmFamField.”) Will vendors be hawking life insurance in the stands? “Gitch yer term life policies here!” The team renamed the Milwaukee Actuaries? At least Smith & Wesson did not purchase naming rights.
