    Since we've got the Democratic party jumping on board charter schools, including the president.

    If knowledge is power and power corrupts, does that mean that knowledge corrupts?

      •  Shameful, and sadly predictable. (5+ / 0-)

        Of course, we now recognize that Obama does not hail from the Democratic Wing of the Democratic Party.

          Have you noticed that one can say almost anything about Obama around here these days without much of a response?

          Surest sign that he's a very lame duck.

          On the other hand, I predict that negative remarks about Hillary will be met with increasingly ferocious opposition.  Even Bill will become sacrosanct.

          Obama has served his purpose.  I'm sure he'll be well rewarded.

          But apparently, he's not worth all the vociferous effort on this site that was the norm for 6+ years.

      •  May I add that we have failed the postal services (0+ / 0-)

        too...
        so has Congress. It would not have been a time consuming or controversial move back when we had strong majorities to pass a bill relieving the post office of the burden of the crazy paying so many years ahead on medical. That republican bill costs them billions per year and it was required of no one else.

        And what have we done? Oh I contacted my senators a couple of times... but I didn't bother to even post diaries trying to grt all of us to do it or get any movement going.
        We didn't have marches in their sypport.

        We still aren't
        We can't make them listen if we aren't making noise.

        We can blame Obama but we should look in the mirror.
        No really we should do more, we still could. It isn't done.
        Even one of those white house petitions
        a call in campaign to congress and white house
        a march (when the weather is better)
        Local activity, letters to editor, making people aware.

        No one I talked to even knew about why the postal service had such money issues. Even media yacks about emails and fedx and ups competition, not the facts.
        They... and we... don't yell about the other services post office could do as they do in other countries.
        or how many disabled vets will lose jobs

        So yes, Obama let them down
        That doesn't excuse us.

      •  I have a lot of rude things to say about (0+ / 0-)

        the comfortable shoes that I will refrain from saying in respect for the office.

        I tried to go online to find a similar bear head...but when I searched “Big Bear Head” it gave me a San Diego craigslist ad entitled “Big Bear needs some quick head now” and then I just decided to never go on the internet again.--Jenny Lawson
