A lynch mob descended on the Ocean View School District’s Board meeting earlier this month, according to the Huntington Beach Independent. A group of rowdy parents, teachers and students almost shut down the board meeting with their sheer numbers.
What were they so angry about? The district is giong to suffer a $2.2-million shortfall in the coming school year. Because of that they are giong to ahve to add about five students per classroom. Increasing the class sizes would save $1.3 million.
But the protestors apparently aren’t very good at math. What exactly is the Ocean View School District’s Board of Education supposed to do? The State of California is broke – thanks to overspending by our Democratic Governor and State Legislature. They are not willing to do what has to be done to unwind our prison state – where we spend about $60,000 per inmate and less than 15% of that per student, on average.
Now, to make matters worse, the mob is going to be protesting tomorrow near Ocean View School District Trustee Norm Weswell’s home. What a joke. These people ought to be protesting the state politicians who have brought such ruin to California. Instead they are picking on Westwell – a Libertarian who has been fighting all his life to stop government waste.
Will these voters ever wake up to what the Democrats have done to our state? I doubt it. But the Republicans don’t have many answers either. Blaming Libertarians like Westwell is utterly insane!
