    So let's be clear: you can't see the difference between this bit of GOP-sponsored legislation and the completely bogus "death panel" propaganda, and therefore are wringing your hands over the possibility that Democrats might be so mean that they'll attack the Republicans.

    With all due respect, your attitude is exactly why Democrats so consistently get out-maneuvered in the sphere of political communications, and is the perfect embodiment of the description of a liberal as somebody too broad-minded to take their own side in an argument.

      •  Well, even if you call yourself a moderate, (0+ / 0-)

        did you really mean to write this:

        than a democrat version of a republican cook
        Apart from the fact that I have no idea what or who a Republican cook is, or what it even means here, the party names are proper names and the blue version should be Democratic, thanks very much. "Democrat" spelled and used as an adjective that way is a favored Republican insult, and I find it hard to believe you don't know that. You've really been here long enough.

    •  You need to read the fascist ALEC boilerplate (2+ / 0-)

      This shit is real. This seems like it couldn't possbly be true. That's pretty much all you are saying here. Denial has been the reason that many of these horrible bills have already become law.

      It's NOT HYPE.

      It is NOT a fucking ATTITUDE.

      Just stirike the words "background check" out of the requirements for teacher certification. Bingo. Sex offenders, felons, abusers, bullies, etc. Pointing this out will expose the right wing privatization plan for what it really is. Hopefully, the people will notice. Probably not, though. Most residents aren't planning to send their kids to private charters. But their taxes that pay for public schools are being stolen and given to private, usually parochial, often right wing evangelical fundamentalist schools.

      Destroy the big-bad gubmint. Put the Church Lady in charge. Promote moral judgement. God created everything in 20 minutes... whatever.

      Read them; The ALEC sponsored boilerplate education privatization bills. Compiled by Wisconsin-based CMD.

      If this doesn't scare the hell out of you, nothing will.
