  •  And funny how the right (12+ / 0-)

    keeps painting the left as "radicals". What's more radical that unprovoked trillion-dollar wars? What's more radical than blowing up a long tradition of public schooling? These people are nuts.

      Republicans are sick. I do not mean that as hyperbole. They are mentally ill. Every last one of them has some severe mental disorder that is going untreated and getting worse. They are rabid monsters endangering us all. People are dead because of these insane republicans. Prior to 2001, who would have thought that the U.S. would adopt an official policy that torturing people to death is acceptable?!?

      +++ The law is a weapon used to bludgeon us peasants into submission. It is not to be applied to the monied elite.

      There's a motive to this, not just a generalized hostility towards public education, teachers unions and a default setting to privatization.

      The worse-educated American kids are, the less they will be able to advocate for themselves effectively. They will lack the critical-thinking skills, literacy and history necessary to organize and fight back against the people who want as many as possible of them working dead-end minimum-wage retail and food service jobs, with any overflow directed into the prisons.
      I repeat, this is the desired outcome. Too bad the outcome after that would most likely involve violence.

          what Sinclair Lewis said: "When fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross."
