“I must study politics and war that my sons may have liberty to study mathematics and philosophy. My sons ought to study mathematics and philosophy, geography, natural history, naval architecture, navigation, commerce, and agriculture, in order to give their children a right to study painting, poetry, music, architecture, statuary, tapestry, and porcelain.”
Direct Quote from John Adams
“I got myself a JD and MBA so that my children could get home schooled and maybe get an office job. They got an office job so that their children could get factory jobs in a manufacturing plant, because manufacturing is what it’s all about. They must get manufacturing jobs so that their children can be union members and do nothing all day, and I will defend the unions until the end of time for their lazy low standards and all the money they give me…hell they won’t need even one of those snobbish high school diplomas.”
–My paraphrasing the collected works of Rick Santorum.
One wonders why one was a great man and president and the other was a schmuck who never will be.
