  •  And also wanted to add thanks, jamess, (10+ / 0-)

    for this great, fact-based diary.  I was almost flummoxed this morning when  a woman came up to me at a nearby mall and announced that "this is all the teacher's fault--they refused to bargain and walked away from the table."  God!  I have NO idea where she got that story but I sat her down and tried to calmly explain to her what you covered in the blockquote section by Jeff Bollier.  I'm actually glad that I had the chance to explain this to her because she really listened, asked a lot of questions, and felt better once she understood she had bad info.  It worries me that the Repubs could (although I see NO evidence of this yet) plant a disinformation campaign and so I'm encouraging friends and family to be sure they have the facts and when people make statements that are just not true to set them straight.
