The Indiana State Legislature is following Wisconsin’s lead.

The R's pushing Union-busting and the D's walking out. Yowza. Our Democratic "Socialist" Governor, Hickenlooper, is looking at cutting public school K-12 budgets. BUT.... Nobody's talking about the R.T. phrase. As in, Really and Truly pay the damn bills. Industry makes beaucoup bux off having educated workers and public transportation and the niceties of a civilized society being available to everybody. Especially the workers who ultimately pay the highest tax, it's called Corporate Profit Margins and it's exacted on us without representation. No Official representation, that is, we still have plenty of police protection from the onerous task of Freedom, actually being allowed to pool our resources, our lives and our labor in collective bargaining in order to assure us an equitable wage, one that allows us to be paid at least what it costs US to produce our labor for the profit of the Rich. In Texas it's already illegal. We have to sacrifice OUR quality of life, OUR retirement, OUR health care and that of our children and grandchildren for generations to come, or so the Tea Party Anti Tax Crusaders tell us. Insuring continued profits for the Parasite Class on the backs of the Working Class, as always. The mill-workers backside

Proof Positive that Privatized Parochial Education is Inferior.

The Colorado Springs Christian Schools is hosting a fundraiser, $250 a seat at the banquet, in April, where they intend to award George W Bush, Decider-in-Thief, the Lion's Heart Award. They're giving that cowardly murdering PUKE a medal for being "Courageous". And to add Blasphemy to Insult, they're doing it in the name of Christ. Why not have our own banquet, across the street from The Broadmoor, (of course it's the Broadmoor) invite him to receive the Horses-ass award, serve ChickenHawk Supreme and weenies. I bet he would be too yellow to come to that banquet. Maybe if CSCS actually focused on REAL education rather than Fascist Indoctrination, they would realize that one thing Richard Coeur de Leon and GW have in common is being sponsors of State Terrorism, bankrupting their home countries to fight Middle East wars involving babykilling , torture, murder of prisoners of war and other War Crimes. What they don't have in common is Richard Lionheart actually put his own life on the line to commit his murders. Not necessarily brave, murderers never are, but at least he wasn't a craven coward like Bush.

Paradigm, Buzzword, Keyword, and persuasion

Paradigm is a "consciousness" term. One of the best known ways to demonstrate it is visually, not verbally, there's a really famous illustration of three forms, if looked at one way, the form in the middle would be the first thing you see, a lamp with a fancy shade. Looking at it from the two side forms it's two human faces close to each other. I think but could be wrong, it's part of the Rorschach series. Much like when we look at clouds, and see faces in them, or animals, flowers, sometimes extremely profound abstract concepts. But whatever we see is a projection of what we were looking to find anyway. Fear or hope, love or hate, friend or foe, food or poison, human faces or lamp. In European Celtic lore the moon has the face of a man, in Japan it's a rabbit. Abstract the paradigm a little, with the faces in the original, are they arguing, speaking words of wisdom, about to kiss? Advertising companies need the psychological data from mass sources, years ago it would take, well, years... to form a

Thank God for Hoam Skewl.

With a courtesy tip o' the fedora to somebody who calls himself "israel fucking rules" (what is that, a neo-nazi porn site, telling us how to have sex Israeli style? You know, their sex rules...) Dudes, I know you can't read really fast so I'll write this really slowly. Warmongering is a very bad thing. Israel does Warmongering. That means, and I am sure you didn't learn this in the Hoam Skewl books, they sell war. Literally. Not every Israeli and really not even most. We know this because we weren't Hoam Skewled. We learned such Intelekshul stuff like Math. I was going to write Mathematics but y'all are only semi-literate so I had to shorten it. The Leader of the Israeli branch of the Bank of Blood Money, Benjamin Netanyahu, who also has Messianic dreams, didn't get even 30% of the vote in their last elections and had to team up with other Right Wing Freak candidates to get a bigger Minority than the other Minority coalitions. For those of our visitors who are Hoam Skewled, that means he personally got less than three out of every ten votes. I had to keep it under ten because otherwise you would

Obama breaks truth to widows: Miners died as Corporate Slaves, get used to it

Not really. He said they died in pursuit of a better life. But since the Coal Companies and other Corporate owners of West Virginia aren't going to actually invest anything in developing some other way for the people who live there to survive, and the people have not nearly enough opportunity to build their own enterprises, it IS a cycle of corporate slavery. 16258

Hysterical Revisionist Virginia Tea Party attempts another test of Anti-Smart Bomb Strategy, EPIC FAIL!

As we approach the Sesquicentennial (150 years) of the Civil War (massive contradiction in terms) the Commonwealth of Virginia attempted to pass off a "Confederate History Month" with no mention whatsodamnever of slavery. Even with decades of attempting to show that display of the Confederate Southern Cross battle flag (not an official confederate national flag, incidentally) is somehow not a symbol of Racism.   (These colors don't run... A God-Damn thing.) 15829

America is not a “white” nation

Well now... an apparently Southern person wrote in response to an article about the Tea-Baggers and Other Klan Affiliates espousing Hate Crimes against black American PEOPLE, under the banners of the Failed Confederate States, that "you are an Idiot" and saying something about the "palling around with terrorists" badly disproved Tea Party Rhetoric. And then saying that the Southern States will secede along with Alaska. And of course all Southerners are going to agree to this, Right? Allow me to remind you of a few things... 15617

Barack pledges to continue Republican Dunce Plan for privatizing Public Schools

The Democrats pledged today to keep the Republican implementation of 'No Child Left Behind' intact, and as a result the nation's corporate media is aglow celebrating the supposed great wisdom of Barack's not so new Education Dunce Plan. Key points of Obama's speech outlined that he would continue the previous efforts of the Republican dismantling of the public education system in our country, and continue the privatization of schools. Let's take a look at what was encouraged in Obama's speech... 6877

Obama’s slam Duncan of public education

It seems that the 'Change' President and basketball player, Barack Obama, has picked another Basketball jock like himself to head up National Education policy? In choosing Arne Duncan for the post, Barack Obama slam Dunkan-ed the Chicago community organizing group, Parents United for Responsible Education, with an Aspen Institute prodigy who specializes in closing down public schools and then reopening them as privatized 'charter schools'. 5814
