Most of our “lawgivers” are focused totally on telling everyone but themselves how to behave. They demand, by law, that our children be confined to school at certain times each day to get “educated.” When it turns out that they cannot be accountable for good education, safety or keeping harmful drugs out of the facilities the children are compelled by them to attend, they want to require tests for illicit substances. Here’s a question for them: Why not let parents freely decide the where, when, how, why, how much of schooling for their kids? Then if there is a “drug use problem” at least we know where to point for genuine accountability. It’s for darn sure those legislators will never be held accountable for the messes they made and will continue to make unless some radical change is made to their rewards and punishments. ”Richard O.
