Money makes the world go ’round

 “If all the rich and all of the church people should send their children to the public schools they would feel bound to concentrate their money on improving these schools until they met the highest ideals. Susan B. Anthony

Interesting headline in today’s Tampa Bay Times, questioning the high rents charged by a for-profit company to its own related non-profit charter school operators.

Is it merely coincidental that legislation is also being pushed through Tallahassee that would allow parents to “trigger” replacement of failing public schools for yet more charter schools?

It is unconscionable that Florida politicians are seemingly facilitating the further deterioration of our public schools by cuts in that funding while promoting charter schools.

They are worshiping at the temple of Mammon.

  1. Catholic Subversion of Governments.

    The Case of Paul Touvier, WWII Nazi Collaborator:

    “After his arrest, further allegations appeared in print, stating that he had been aided for years by the Catholic Church hierarchy in Lyon and later by members of the Traditionalist Catholic movement. He was defended by the monarchist lawyer Jacques Tremollet de Villers, who later became president of the Traditionalist Catholic organization, La Cité Catholique.”

    Paul Touvier and all of his immediate relatives were harbored by various Catholic churches in France and abbeys for more than 40 years after WWII. He was not arrested until 1994. The Catholics in France still try to practice “sanctuary.” It was replaced by “asylum” and refugee status after the French Revolution. Since the abolishment of sanctuary, the Governments now adjudicate applications for asylum. Touvier is not an isolated case. Many NAZI collaborators were harbored by the Catholic Church in France at one time or another.

    As most people know, the Catholic Church also harbors many sex predators. The enormous costs of settling these claims is one reason the Catholic Church needs another amnesty—quick. They they can resume processing the applicants for amnesty for illegal aliens—and as a “non-profit” organization, they can also solicit “donations” from the people they help.

  2. Bush 43 started this BS with his “faith-based initiatives.” Because of that, we no now pay taxes to support church schools, which I believe is a blatant violation of the Constitution; it certainly shows contempt for Thomas Jefferson’s “Wall of Separation” doctrine. Jefferson, a Unitarian, who actually framed the Constitution, feared that we’d someday have something akin to the Holy Roman Empire here–as it was then in Europe. Then, the Catholic Church had more power than the European governments–until the French Revolution.

    Did you know that the Catholic Church has a contract with the U.S. Government to process illegal alien applicants for amnesty? The law calls the Catholic Church a “qualified designated entity,” or QDE, and they are just now finishing up the applicants for the last amnesty ten years ago (called [Extension of 245(i)].

    Ron Paul ofte quotes Sinclair Lewis in Lewis’ novel, “It Can’t Happen Here:” “When facism comes to America, it will come draped in the flag and holding a bible.”
