The American Federation for Children is not for children it is for reactionaries in Wisconsin and beyond

From Larry Miller’s blog: The American Federation for Children (AFC), led by Betty DeVos, is spending money on Milwaukee’s present legislative races. The American Federation for Children spent $1.5 million helping Republicans during this year’s recall elections.

Want to know who Cory Booker is and what he really stands for?

Back in July of 2010, I reported on the New Jersey Teacher’s Village that would combine zoning for three charter schools and corporate labor houses  for corporate teachers.

Skinning The Cat

Fraudulent Faith : Christianity & Tyranny

The conflation of religion and nationalism, or “God and country,” has long been a hallmark of the American ethos.

Rekers,  co-creator  with James Dobson of Family Research Council with Reverend James Dobson in 1983, denounced homosexuality as a […]

Government by dicts: my comprehensive resources to understand US fascism, rigged-casino economics

source, with live video. Fellow Americans: literally for the love of God, it’s time. It’s time to recognize the overwhelming evidence of unlawful and lie-based US Wars of Aggression, rigged-casino economics, and a complicit corporate media that echoes propaganda for our lying sacks of spin “leaders” who operate above and in contempt of US law.

CAFR: UC budget fully funded with one-fifth of one percent of CA state “investments”

source. The UC system had a budget deficit for this ending school year of $0.65 billion. The policy response was to deny 2,300 students enrollment, lay-off over 2,000 faculty and staff, furlough teaching days and cut 10% salaries, and raise tuition by 32%. For less than one-fifth of one percent of the investment total of […]

Arizona, Institutional Racism & Assimilation

Arizona, Institutional Racism & Assimilation By: Solomon Comissiong The Southwestern US state of Arizona has recently garnered a lot of public attention for its blatantly racist legislation. In April (2010) the closet racist governor of Arizona, Jan Brewer, signed into law SB-1070. SB-1070 was paraded around by her administration as some sort of law aimed […]
