You only speak for yourself. You certainly don't speak for me. In fact by trying to take authority for your point of view from your presumption that everyone else agrees with you, you're guaranteed to be wrong, and lose the point.
This is the whole point. Many tax dollars spent do not benefit each and every citizen. Just because the government wants to fund a certain religious (e.g., secularist) school does not mean that every citizen will support that school.
In fact, the government should not be involved in education at all. The post you replied to is recognizing that the government is taking too much money—and power—into its own hands. Most of the taxes and powers belong to the citizens. This is the reason the American Colonies of England separated from England—because the government tried to become too involved in the lives of a self-governing and self-disciplined people.
The most obvious reason that government shouldn't be too involved in the daily affairs of law-abiding citizens is that noone should be forced to accept the (many times) biased points of view of governing agencies.
Are you running that and hoping that your dynamic IP address doesn't change or do you have a business account with a fixed IP? If it's a business account than I would assume that they aren't redirecting those but could still be redirecting on consumer accounts.
Dynamic IPs are not ``dynamic'' if one nevers gives up the lease. I have WOW (wide open west / http://wowway.com/ ) Internet and the only time my IP has changed is when our router was replaced (giving it a different client ID) and, of course, when I directly plugged my computer into a hub connected to the modem (to give it direct Internet access). Because WOW has blocked all UDP traffic on port 53, I have a gracious friend who has ComCast and serves my DNS. Comcast doesn't seem to change IPs unless if the router/DHCP client releases a lease. This means I essentially don't need to change glue records at all. But Comcast has seemed to more often supposedly required people to re-plug-in their modems and (I'm guessing only from slight experience) Comcast may have even forced an IP change upon one router I've had access to.
Has any other WOW user tested serving DNS? I sent a query to WOW people and they said:
Port 53 is reserved for internal WOW! network use only. Please try using an alternate port.
