TO THE WOODSHED ON THE HILL WITH THEM ALL
What exactly is it about the above statement that they do not understand? We have concluded an election. In this election, the citizens of South Carolina have seen the workings of out of state, political ideologues who have too much money, too much time on their hands, and no consideration for those children and their families who would bear the consequences of their failed social experiments. These meddlesome and moneyed interests have come into our state, quite unwelcome. We shall call them Vouchers, Incorporated.
Vouchers, Inc., each and every one of them, should be taken to the wood shed on the Hill and given the good, hard, butt whippin' that they all deserve. And where is this wood shed, and on which Hill does it stand? The wood shed resides in the halls of the United States Congress. The Hill is Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C.
It is suggested that one of the first items of business for our newly elected Congress to be a series of Congressional hearings to investigate the activities of Vouchers, Inc. The efforts of Vouchers,Inc. to defund, and thereby destabilized, public education are national in scope. They are connected in a subterranean, opaque web of influence across the country. They flaunt and circumvent our campaign finance laws, and make a mockery of our democratic election process. What they are attempting to pass for education reform is analogous to kicking the crutches out from under the handicapped......for sport. The social policy of Voucher's, Inc. can best be summed up in three, simple words: Sink or Swim.
For an entity that is comprised of people who are business leaders, it is truly amazing to see how little those individuals, the ones who are driving Vouchers, Inc., really know about applying common business principles to reforming a social program such a public education. It is very apparent that their goal is to cut and eliminate resources without providing better alternatives for our children. It is ironic that it is business leaders who are driving policies that will result in schools producing a future workforce that will be less qualified to meet the needs of businesses.
As part of the leadership of the new Congress, it is suggested that South Carolina U.S. Congressmen Clyburn and Spratt invite Vouchers, Inc. to the wood shed on the Hill to testify before members of Congress and the American people. Invite them all. Let us see and hear Howard Rich, Dennis Sinned, Randy Page, Joshua Gross, and others in monologueon C-SPAN. Invite them all. Let us see and hear them explain how the destabilization of the public school system in America serves the needs of our country.

Josh at The (Grossly Overweight) Body Politic won't post my comments, like the one below. Why do you think he's afraid of me?
Hey Josh Gross:
... insert theme from "Jaws" here.
You're in full panic mode, Josh. It's coming to get you, but you can't see it.
There's blood in the water. The big fish is hungry.
I thnk you know how this ends, oh thou of excessive personal belly chum.
And just like your massive shiny noggin, it ain't pretty.
Nope, not a shark.
As with Jonah, Joshua shall be swallowed by a whale.....and then vomited out.
