"See, I Told You" Doesn't Work on Liberals

What’s more satisfying than watching someone who didn’t take your advice getting burned, and being able to say, “See, I toldja!”?  “Thought you were smarter than me, didn’tcha?”  “Thought ya knew better. Ha, ha”  
Of course, you only get to experience this with people who have some amount of common sense.  The truly stupid will never admit that they were wrong - even when it should be obvious to them. This is why it's so hard to deal with liberals.

You know how liberals are always saying that we need to spend more money on education?  No matter how much they get, it’s never enough, and lack of money is always the excuse for their failures.

Did you ever wonder how much money would be “enough” for them?  Did you ever wonder how much money it would take for liberals to make our public education system a success?

These question has always been hypothetical. Liberals have never been able to get all the money they wanted - until just recently.  Mark Zuckerberg did us (what should have been) the ultimate favor by making the hypothetical, a reality and giving Newark, New Jersey Public Schools...


...$100 million.  Not only that, the 100 million was contingent upon Newark mayor, Cory Brookers raising $100 million dollars. Zuckerberg's money would release to Newark as matching dollars rolled in, so they had


$200 million to play with.  What was the end result?  Just what you’d expect...

Mark Zuckerberg gave New Jersey $100 million to fix Newark's schools, and it looks like it was a waste

Gov. Chris Christie upset because Zuckerberg offered to take Mayor Cory Brooker out for pizza and ice cream, but didn't invite him.

In the fall of 2010, Mark Zuckerberg announced on Oprah that he'd be making a generous gift to Newark, New Jersey.
As Oprah said in her Oprah way, "one ... hundred ... million ... dollars" would be given to Newark Mayor Cory Booker and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie as the three began the Startup: Education foundation. 
The plan was to turn Newark into what Zuckerberg called "a symbol of educational excellence for the whole nation," spent on retaining the best teachers, and creating environments that would produce successful students and, one day, graduates.
Newark is a city wrought with crime. Its graduation rate is about 67%. It needed the help, and Booker's vision sounded promising.
Between 2010 and 2012, The New Yorker reports that "more than twenty million dollars of Zuckerberg’s gift and matching donations went to consulting firms with various specialties: public relations, human resources, communications, data analysis, [and] teacher evaluation." Many of the consultants were being paid upwards of $1,000 a day.
“Everybody’s getting paid but Raheem still can’t read," Vivian Cox Fraser, president of the Urban League of Essex County, was quoted saying.
Today, the money is pretty much gone, and Newark has hardly become that symbol of excellence.

Now you think that all this would end, once and for all, the liberals being able to sucker the public out of their tax money, but it probably won’t change a thing.  Liberals are so stupid, saying “See, I told you so.” doesn’t work on them.
