    Corporatist bidding and destroy public education, an institution they do not, as yet, control.  Indoctrination and profit are the motive...and who will control what is taught in Corporate schools?  

    Hell, in most states that divert public funds to for-profit or private education, those schools are not required to take state exams that every other public school must administer.  What are they scared of?  Truth!

    "New Traditionalists Must Concentrate on Students and Young Adults:...We will accomplish the goal of retaking our country only when large numbers of young people are educated outside of the indoctrinating environment of many public and private schools, universities, and of course, the popular culture. At this point in their lives, many of their ideas are still in the formative stage, the more so the younger they are."  Eric Heubeck (Paul Weyrich protege): The Integration of Theory and Practice: A Program for the New Traditionalist Movement

    "I'm frankly sick and tired of the political preachers across this country telling me as a citizen that if I want to be a moral person, I must believe in 'A,' 'B,' 'C,' and 'D.' Just who do they think they are?" Barry Goldwater

      That quote... just... god damn. That's not education. That's brainwashing! And as the kid of a teacher, that kind of thing makes my stomach turn over.

      Hands off of the kids, assholes.

      I'm a witness to the moon and stars above/ I'm aware of the crimson sky/ I'm a witness to the crumbling walls as well/ But I'm not your alibi!

      The radical Republican party is the party of oppression, fear, loathing and above all more money and power for the people who robbed us.
