Women charged with elections fraud led unassuming lives


The Left and the Masses: Part II

There are whole chains of charter schools, such as the KIPP (Knowledge Is Power Program) schools and the Success Academy schools, where ghetto kids have academic achievements equal to those of children in affluent suburbs — and sometimes higher achievements.  Many of these charter schools are located in the very same buildings in ghetto neighborhoods where children in the regular public schools are failing miserably. Black parents who enroll their children in charter schools have apparently made better choices than the know-it-alls on the left.

Business Class By BILL KAUFFMAN • October 27, 2016

And there’s Bill Treichler, who prophesied, “Rural, basically self-sufficient, living, along with homeschooling and the interconnectedness of the information age, will produce people who will be more self-reliant and more insistent upon independence. And they will have the time and inclination to fashion beautiful, purposeful homes and gardens and tools, and to express their own ideas and feelings by writing, drawing, painting, speaking, singing and dancing.”

The Journal of Banking, Volume 1 By William M. Gouge

Give me a Bank — a paper Bank,
The best machine for saving labor,
For who would toil and sweat himself,
When there’s a chance to sweat his neighbor.
Away, now, with your power-looms,
Revolving Jacks, and spinning Jennies;
Contrivances for packing wool
Can’t match the Banks for picking pennies.
“Ex nihil nihil fit,” was once
A maxim much in vogue with some;
But few indeed can now maintain
That “nothing can from nothing come.”
For though the ancients could convert
Their gold to rags, (as we are told,)
Yet we, in times more civilized
Can make from rags the best of gold.
All hail, then, glorious alchemy,
That can from nothing something make !
What pity things created thus,
Their primal form are prone to take.
So let us have a Bank, my boys !
A fortune thus we all may win:
Like lilies of the valley live,
Who “toil not, neither do they spin!”
