Trump is a loser and the emergency is that he will never accept this

Trump is a loser and the emergency is that he will never accept this

This is racist crisis that we always expected and Trump needs Before James Comey decided to make Donald Trump president, the GOP nominee’s refusal to say he would concede if defeated occupied much of our political conversation in the closing month of the 2016 election. Since his party suffered its biggest House losses since Watergate, this fear has proven correct. […]

We Told You…

We Told You…

I’m not here for the impending barrage of heartfelt stories about Trump voters who have now “seen the light,” and suddenly realize that his tax cuts, and tariffs, and gutting of regulations, and pulling out of trade deals around the globe, and manipulation of the SEC and stock market, and threats against judges, and attacks on the press, and government […]

When You Give a Teacher a Gun…

When You Give a Teacher a Gun…

Here are just a few of the most troubling excerpts from a very disturbing recent article on arming teachers, presented without comment: “When she started her career, Pam’s salary was $23,000. (“If I ever see $55,000, I’ll be 105 years old,” she says, laughing.) The district is covering her hotel and ammunition for training, but she paid for her new […]

A little “locker room talk” from a Democrat has Republicans’ ladies undergarments all in a twist

A little “locker room talk” from a Democrat has Republicans’ ladies undergarments all in a twist

Rashida Tlaib had the audacity to invoke what Dan Savage has been saying for two years with his hashtag #ITMFA (“Impeach the motherfucker already”) when she made comments to a group of MoveOn activists yesterday and, to hear the Republicans’ response to it, you’d think she had said it during the half-time show at the Superbowl. “People love you. And […]

Change is Coming in the World of Education Reform: Fordham Institute Edition

Change is Coming in the World of Education Reform: Fordham Institute Edition

I have to say that it’s pretty amusing to see an–allegedly–education-focused website like the Fordham Institute print this “sky is falling” forecast of new Wisconsin governor Tony Evers’ predicted influence on schooling in the state, but it’s illustrative of Fordham’s deep hatred for public education, and their support for the corporate ed reform agenda. Between the twisting of facts and […]

The shutdown is also a chance to start focusing on taking back the Senate

The shutdown is also a chance to start focusing on taking back the Senate

Republicans who unanimously voted to keep the government open must pay if they go along with Trump’s shutdown in 2019 The government should be open right now. A million government workers, mostly veterans, shouldn’t be without a paycheck. Contractors at the Smithsonian and national parks shouldn’t be at risk of losing their homes. Scientific research shouldn’t be grinding to a […]

Betsy & Erik’s Plan to Turn American Institutions into AMWAY Franchises

Betsy & Erik’s Plan to Turn American Institutions into AMWAY Franchises

The Daily Kos has a new piece out today suggesting that–surprise!–the Trump Tower meeting that EVERYONE attending it claimed, insisted, and swore was “no big deal,” was actually–hold on, here’s the twist–a really big deal. Shocker, eh? Now, how absolutely delicious would it be if this whole dumpster fire could be traced back to Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos, and […]

David and Goliath are Poised for Battle in 2019; Who Will Win the “Education War”?

The war over public education has been waged over the last decade or so by two opposing factions; a battle between David and Goliath, if you will. There are numerous distinctions between the two sides, characterized by issues of wealth and power. “Goliath” in our analogy is the “corporate reform of education” movement and their advance army of standard-bearers, a […]
