Starve The Beast

I urge all my fellow Long Islanders who read The Corner to go out and vote

down the school budgets being presented to us today. In my town, the budget

proposal asks for an increase of 5.52 percent over last year. Did your

family’s income increase 5.52 percent last year? If not, you can’t afford

this budget. The only way to kill socialism is to starve the beast–cut off

its food supply. Vote down the budget and keep voting it down, till the

school boards get the message that in tough times, the public sector has to

tighten its belt with the rest of us. Similarly, when you vote for school

board members, vote for the ones who are NOT shills for the public-sector

unions. It’s not hard to figure out who they are from their mission
