'The Vent'

A protester wearing a T-shirt that reads in Spanish "Anti-fascist" shouts in a megaphone during a protest demanding education reform in Santiago, Chile, Friday Nov 18, 2011. Students have been demanding education reform for at least six months. At the heart of the standoff are dueling visions of Chilean education that emerged during the 1973-1990 dictatorship of Gen. Augusto Pinochet. The country's schools had previously been free to all students, but the regime pushed a free market-based approach and cleared the way for more private universities, as well as an eventual voucher system that directs billions of dollars in public funds to privately run high schools.

“Why are private and charter schools being built at the speed of light? Who are the principals behind these schools? Is it some of the Gilbert School Board members? Member Colvin wanted his buddy Dwayne Farnsworth to get the superintendents job? An attorney untrained in the educational field? What next Colvin?”

“I am surprised the ‘Ruskies’ didn’t request security help for the Olympics from either ‘border’ sheriff Paul Babeu or Joe Arpaio. I guess Putin really doesn’t like gays or baloney.”

“Hey ‘venters!’ If Justin Bieber is the worst thing you have to worry about, you lead a charmed existence indeed.”
