Fox's Hoenig: Children Would 'Do Better on the Streets' Than in Union Dominated Public School System
While discussing the fact that a large number of school districts across the country have now decided to start operating on a four day schedule because of budget constraints, Fox Cashin' In contributor Jonathan Hoenig jumps the shark so badly during this segment, that even his fellow wingnuts that normally spend these Saturday show trashing public education and any public sector unions had to disagree with him.

HOENIG: Government, which of course has a monopoly over the public schools, really has become the parent. If the reason for keeping this failed school system is day care, I mean honestly Tracy, believe me, it's cheaper for you to hire a baby sitter for your kids, than to fund this union dominated school system.

(crosstalk)

BYRNES: Jonathan, it's about learning. It is about keeping us on par with the rest of the world.

HOENIG: Why do you want to keep them there more? That's the whole point. They're not learning in the public schools. You want to keep them there more... an extra day? They'd do better on the streets!

1. Schools are a cost.
Prisons are a profit center.

4. Of course.
But it's probably too subtle for teabaggers.

5. Beautifully stated!
I'm stealing that one, highest compliment I can pay.

Maybe this joker needs to go to Rio or even NYC and see what happens to kids on the street. I mean after men of his class and station in life pay them for their services.

I have to love it when they start overstating things like this, when they reveal themselves as utter and complete jackasses.

batshit crazy by the day. Surely this man does not believe this.

6. They will be on the streets
if the Repukes and Arne Duncan have their way.

7. A lot of our students are in fact homeless.
I seriously doubt they think they are doing better because of it.

8. He did not jump the shark so stop saying that!
In order to jump the shark, one must have been relevant at one time. :P
