This is a tough time. I'd like to ask those individuals rallying for any specific program what their personal financial status is. As a nation, and as individual states, we are in trouble. We may keep any program we like, and continue to dig our children and grandchildren further and further into debt. Instead, we need to cut. To dig deep, and hunker down and pay for the mistakes we have made as a nation. Use this opportunity to teach your kids what happens when you don't manage your money. Utilize community resources like big brothers big sisters, and parks. Put responsibility back into the hands of parents. Beautiful community togetherness and volunteer programs come out of times like these; allow them to be formed.
Also, one of the Save PE members was quoted saying that elem. school teachers can't handle adding PE to their own workload. That statement was not based on any fact (or even any expensive poll) and was frustrating to hear. Bad form.
Maybe we could ask the welfare-ians to do a little work for their cheese and toss them each a soccer-ball or paintbrush.
