But what about the children?

I’ve noted several times before how often overbearing liberal legislation is defended by the cry “it’s for the children.”

Interesting, then, that today’s temper tantrum known as “A day without women” resulted in so many female teachers taking leave that at least three entire school districts shut down.

And that’s just in three states.  Who knows how much educational disruption is going on today?  It wouldn’t be surprising to find that those few who stay on the job used the class time for indoctrination.

Modern liberalism is the politics of expedience and power, not principle.  If it weren’t for double standards, they’d have no standards at all.

It’s a shame the governors of affected states won’t do as Ronald Reagan did with striking air traffic controllers.  Firing the absent teachers and replacing them might actually DO something “for the children.”
