Here is a true story. I will change a little bit the names and places to protect the innocent.
Scene: a public library
One teacher in charge who is very competent and communicated the rules well in advance.
About a dozen participants. Each young person (age 1-2) was held by one adult -- parent or legal guardian.
During the half-hour session, the teacher passed out small plastic rattles so the children could participate in rhythm.
One child-X left his on the large rug. Onother child-Z tripped and dropped his and the X person immediately grabbed it, took it, and moved away with it. Z was reaching for his rattle when X took it. Z persued the rattle in X's hand. I watched as X went to his guardian-female type. She saw me looking at the situation and said, "oh, is this his"? I said, "yes". She took it from X and gave it to Z. I said thanks...
It gets better. X went and found Z's rattle and brought it to him. He didn't take it! She did for him...
The above illustrates what liberals want to do. All the "children" -- each get an object 'free'-- either money, or transportation, or food, or housing, or education. Most don't really want this, but they will try to take away that which Zs get, or earn for themselves. It is not about money, "the poor" or anything else like that. It is about morals and character. No amount of money can help these people. Only spiritual guidance can. This is what are in the public schools today: Xs and those who pamper them.
