I suspect it won't take much longer before they attempt to completely outlaw home schooling, since we don't follow their "standards".

School to Work programs demand a certificate issued by the brainwashing machines of the government school system. Without the certificate, you will not be allowed to have a job.

Will someone please show me where the Constitution gives authority to the feds to control education? And what happened to the platform plank to eliminate the Dept of Ed?

I can't wait until the Republocrat machine starts pumping out the "don't waste your vote on a pro-Constitution -- oops, third party -- candidate" crap again.

Boy, good thing a democrat didn't propose signed this law? Oh, its call "bipartisanship", right? Er, um, right? Now what does that mean again, what was it, oh yeah, one party rule, right?

Socialism...Its Not Just For Democrats Any More!(tm)

The Official Lumberjack Counter Proposal:

No Middle Finger Left Un-Extended

A bold initiative wherein everytime a law like this is passed, citizens are encouraged to extend their middle finger at the closest available politician, or failing that, in the general direction of Washington D.C. Citizens are then urged to ignore or circumnavigate the legislation.

It's why I've always said that the liberals are the REAL annal retentive reactionary control freaks they accuse of others. Their whole agenda is the expression of their angst about what they are paranoid.
