"If you add up all the benefits, it's really astonishing," the New York senator and former first lady said, citing one study that says for every dollar invested in pre-kindergarten, there is at least a seven fold return. -- Hillary Clinton as reported by Yahoo!News

Seven fold?!? So if the collective we invests a dollar, we reap seven. Invest a million, and reap seven million. A billion, and reap seven billion. A trillion, and reap seven trillion. Now we're talking real money.

Who would have thought that universally-available, publicly-funded prekindergarten programs would be so beneficial? With that rate of return, maybe the collectivists are onto something?

With Clinton in office investing my coerced tax dollars, East Street is just round the next turn.

Jim Fedako, a business analyst and homeschooling father of seven, lives in the wilds of suburban Columbus. Send him mail.
