Texas State Representative Debbie Riddle: Free Education for Everyone as the Work of Satanists and Communists

(quote source Rethinking Schools, Fall 2004: 20)

"Where did this idea come from that everybody deserves free education? It comes from Moscow, from Russia. It comes straight out of the pit of hell."
--Texas State Rep. Debbie Riddle, 2003

The idea that some things are so basic frightens Debbie Riddle, whose moral relativism is a surer guide than an adult conscience. She should apply for a job at Wealth Bondage when she leaves office. Candidia Cruikshanks is always looking for deep thinkers.

I'm sure that Wealth Bondage would be an ideal place for Riddle's rehabilitation... it would be a special sort of hell for her because of the combination of intelligence and humor--20 lashes of satire daily and some good ol' fashioned boot-licking, floor scrubbing might reattach her to a reality-based view... as Pem Buck Davidson says in her book "Worked To The Bone" the view looks different from down there...
