Boycott the Schools campaign

I'm circulating a petition among big businesses, looking for sponsors. This'll be a private sector initiative by your giant corporation friends, the one's that aren't soulless zombie wombats that is (aka The Despicables -- watch for the TV series).

Our strategy will be to make the fare on television so vastly superior to what's offered in school, that this counter-argument that they'll "miss learning" (because staying home with the tube) just won't hold any water.

You'll miss learning if you go off to that sorry/sad prison camp every day, where you're forced to carry water for someone, but *obviously* (and I say this with emphasis) *not* for Uncle Sam.

Some slave driver is in the driver's seat, and needs to be flushed. I'm for focusing a lot of televisions on this problem, pronto. We're simply out of time.
