People being people

Occasionally people will gird up their loins, take the bit in their teeth, and spit in the eye of the dragon.  That’s what folks in Seattle did last week.  While the rest of the country was having an orgy of self abuse (i.e., voting against their own interests), Seattle voters agreed to raise their own taxes.  Why?  Because otherwise, the local schools wouldn’t have enough funds to provide preschooling for poor people’s children.  And preschooling is critical to gaining a leg up later on in life.

That’s right — a whole bunch of people said “Fuck you” to the Ayn Rand philosophy of “I got mine, you can drop dead”.  Feel better now?


Be seeing you.
