John, your article is right on the mark. Because true American history is not taught much now, most people don't understand UNIONS are the primary reason "outsourcing" to other countries was created. This has destroyed manufacturing in the U.S. Public schools stink and it starts with government interference. There are so many, intelligent kids and it doesn't matter their race, that don't get an education. The second obstacle, in addition to the school systems, is the parents themselves. They don't care if the kids go to school or not, as long as they aren't under foot. Don't know where I read this quote, "Your children are a reflection on you".
