A QUOTE ON EDUCATION
It has been observed, that “education has a greater influence on manners, than human laws can have.” Human laws excite fears and apprehensions, least crimes committed may be detected and punished: But a virtuous education is calculated to reach and influence the heart, and to prevent crimes. A very judicious writer, has quoted Plato, who in shewing what care for the security of States ought to be taken of the education of youth, speaks of it as almost sufficient to supply the place both of Legislation and Administration. Such an education, which leads the youth beyond mere outside shew, will impress their minds with a profound reverence of the Deity, universal benevolence, and warm attachment and affection towards their country. It will excite in them a just regard to Devine Revelation, which informs them of the original character and dignity of Man; and it will inspire them with a sense of true honor, which consists in conforming as much as possible their principles, habits, and manners to that original character. It will enlarge their powers of mind, and prompt them impartially to search for truth in the considerations of every subject that they may employ their thoughts; and among other branches of knowledge, it will instruct them in the skill of political architecture and jurisprudence; and qualify them to discover any error, if there should be such, in the forms and administration of Governments, and point out the method of correcting them.

AN OPINION FROM THE DEPLORABLE INFIDEL
A federal judge in California has ruled the Trump administration must provide mental health services to thousands of migrant parents and children separated at the U.S.-Mexico border. I think the money would be much better spent giving mental health services to the moron American hating Democrats in Congress.
