Speaking of attacks on Iran, I saw a report that Israel has already knocked out most of Iran's nuclear capacity in the last day or so. Since I have no verification of that, I will continue to research it and let you know, faithful readers, when I find good data. In the meantime, I did find this most interesting bit of current data on charter schools actually being fraudulent money-makers for the Church of Scientology. Talk about an attack. Read on, please.
Do you like to fund religious cults with rapidly vanishing (since the wealthy don't pay that much anymore) taxpayer funds? How about irreligious cults? Non-religious cults? Or just money-making cults with a religious bent? Or at least alternate religion sounding patter? Scientology has long presented itself as a money-making enterprise that sells books (oodles of books) and services (crazy-sounding services that no one should need) to the poorly educated (for example, Tom Cruise and John Travolta). How about entrusting them with educating your children (in the disguise of properly-vetted charter schools)?
Seems like lots of folks do. At least in Florida, Minnesota, and in many other states. And it may be coming to your state soon if it's okayed even when exposed as a fraud.
