Letters to the editor, February 22

Reverse student loan

Bubba called. Said he has a “sure fire” plan to fix public education.

If a student graduates from high school but functions on a ninth-grade level, his school would refund the state the cost of those three years that student didn’t learn academically.

If a student drops out of school, the parents would be required to refund the state for the cost of efforts made to educate their doofus offspring — kinda like a reverse student loan. (I did some editing here; Bubba gets into a subject and his vernacular gets a tad rough. There was something about “setting a shoe shop up” in the seat of someone’s pants and a few nonpublishable remarks.)

Bubba wanted to know how all those low-information voters liked the increase in their gas prices and the decrease in their take-home pay.

So much for the Obama promise of no tax increases on the little guy. Bubba considers an increase in gasoline/diesel a tax, since the United States sits on more oil and gas than any country in the world and the Obama administration is not approving more drilling to meet U.S. needs and to sell to the rest of the world.

Bubba said the phone rang at the White House on Sept. 11, 2012 and no responsible adult answered to save four Americans in Benghazi.

Bubba doesn’t think the American people will ever know the truth about what happened as long as this cast of Chicago characters is in the White House.
