It is very important that the attack on public education (continuation of what was occurring in the Obama Administration) be put in context of more tax cuts for large corporations and wealthy individuals.
This tax cut racket has been going on for decades now, and it just blows my mind that so many people still don’t seem to understand what has been happening, and what is still happening.
In fact, we are seeing the beginning of the end game for the objectives first presented in the Powell Memo, and in the early utterances of the right wing super prick Grover Norquist. That being cut taxes, cut taxes, cut taxes, cut taxes…darn, no money to spend for local, state, federal government…large corporations move in to “rescue” publicly held utilities by privatization…boosts in MIC, Security Industrial Complex run amok…calls to “rescue” Social Security and Medicare for future generations by defunding them “to bring deficits under control”…rinse, repeat, recycle.
And the MSM drones on with every “conventional” rationale keeping this fucking scam in place.
This protest, good for them. But constantly not calling out this ongoing scam in the context of every battle, every assault on what is still publicly held, will ensure the propagandists win, every single time.
