People who use a lack of education to justify subjecting poor people to poverty are fucking revolting. They’ve invented a system wherein poor people cannot obtain a quality education because they are poor and then they use that lack of education to justify their continued poverty. It’s self-sustaining, vile, oppressive, and a fundamental tenet of modern American conservativism.
Minimum-wage protections are an issue Cain knows intimately. In his work as the CEO of Godfather’s Pizza and later as president of the National Restaurant Association, Cain worked diligently in Washington and in the media to see that low-wage restaurant workers could legally be paid as little as possible, as In These Timeshas noted.

And don’t tell me that the kid can just not say it, that it’s somehow optional, because we’re talking about schoolchildren who will pick up on the fact that one kid is different and then just pester them to death over it. Not all kids, but there’s always some.
And I would add that if you think school prayer is OK, then you really don’t think that people who have a different religion from you deserve full citizenship. Because you won’t have the school force kids to recite a Jewish or Muslim prayer, only a Christian prayer. And you’re asking the state to privilege your religion above others. That is wrong in a country where we don’t have an official religion, and where the Founding Fathers went to such lengths to codify that we don’t…………………………………………Read more at the asshole of the day web site.
