Money Quote

From 14A of the N&O, an article about preschoolers being expelled runs this money quote: "Child-care experts said many expulsions could be avoided with better teacher training and support from psychologists and social workers."

That sentence is classic modern Liberal psychobabble.

First, it avoids placing blame - a favorite Liberal failing.

Second, it makes no mention of the need for better parenting and more discipline at home in order to reduce expulsions at school. Liberals can't make that claim without fear of being grouped into the James Dobson school of conservative parenting (a school I subscribe to with my kids).

Third, it supplies a ready-made solution: more government programs, more government experts and increased taxes to pay for it.

Liberalism captured in one sentence.
