Bureaucrats belly-up to the bar and instruct the paymasters the amount of funding they demand for the next 4 years. Remember, private sector taxpayers, Funding Follows Failure.
The Exchequer long ago also made his demands to the paymasters that he wanted to add a ¼ million deadbeats to the welfare rolls, but now the Exchequer is not sure if the paymasters can muster the amount of dollars to fund the Exchequer’s criminal desires. We shall see. Note the Exchequer refuses to identify the demographics of the proposed welfare increase. How many legal and illegals are in the proposal, but how could he, he has stated on numerous occasions that he did not know how many illegals are in the state and on welfare—which is a lie—remember that word FUNDING?
The Exchequer and the paymasters dancing to the attendance of teacher unions are prepared to increase yearly funding into the government schools by $21.8 million per year. Nowhere to be found is what areas of the government schools this money is to be spent, generally or specifically, i.e. teacher’s salaries, new edifices, pensions, or would you think it might be to improve the watered down curriculum? Remember, Funding Follows Failure.
Moving on to the Univ. of Ark. Fort Smith, Chancellor Paul Beran sidles up to the paymasters’ window and turns in his demand which is $3million more per year. Again, no hint as to Beran’s intentions on how or where to spend his filthy lucre. Is it more trips to China, is it to purchase a downtown building already paid for twice by taxpayers, a downtown academy for the “disadvantaged”, an “entrepreneurial” school, and numerous other misdirected “visions”?
How long would you think it would take the Exchequer & Paymasters to determine 2 colleges in Pine Bluff, AR is just not feasible, justifiable or sensible? To further pique questions, would you think the Exchequer & Paymasters are aware or would question the remediation rate at one of those colleges, particularly when the remediation rate is 85% of first year students? Most of this pathetic number can and should be directed at the Arkansas government K-12 system! Remember, Funding Follows Failure.
Citizens, don’t you get all touchy & feely when you hear the governor & politicians parrot “the funding is for education” or when they endlessly repeat the asinine absurdities of “making a difference” or “giving back”? What we have elected in Ark. State government is a collection of self-serving buffoons.
On one other note to demonstrate the direction of Ark. State government & specifically the government school system, note Exchequer Beebe profusely endorsed double-dipping Steve Breedlove—retired 2 term state legislator, former school teacher & administrator. Guess where Breedlove’s allegiances lie?
P.S. Just think what the Flagship’s demands are!
