Yes, 75 year old Diane Ravitch -- grandmother, author, and historian -- is "evil" in the eyes of this sitting member of Congress. Aren't you proud, Colorado?
This empty suit is the 7th wealthiest member of Congress. But Polis is really just another phony Democrat who pushes idiocy like Race To The Top so he doesn't have to have a serious conversation about income inequity. It's all part of the hard work of the rich and powerful, slaving away to protect their big piles of lucre from the hordes storming the gates of Versailles. "Let them eat charter school cake!" says Le Comte de Jared.
It's a very interesting dynamic we have going on right now in this country when it comes to economic justice. Folks like Polis have no problem with political, media, and financial systems that allow pirates to accumulate obscene amounts of booty -- so long as they get a chance to get in on the action. To them, social "progress" is a billionaire who's black, or gay, or female.
It never seems to occur to them, however, that someone needs to edge their perfectly manicured lawns. Someone needs to bus their salad plates at their favorite five-star eateries. Someone needs to pour the asphalt on the highways their limos cruise over. And maybe those people deserve health care and decent wages and dignified retirements that last longer than a few minutes between the time they stop working and the time they keel over from exhaustion.
Charter schools will do nothing -- nothing -- to help the people who do the hard, honest work that is demanded by our capitalist society. Maybe Jared Polis thinks charter schools are so awesome because they might give a rare poor kid from the inner city a chance to grow up and become an obscenely wealthy a-hole like him.
But that's not the real problem, is it?
Hey, stop it with the facts and stuff! Can't you see I'm trying to put on a patina of liberalism here?!
