'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.

“To cover-up past global warming foretell, the Environmental Protection Agency, and leading Democrats, are now calling the late wicked winter snowstorms and cold weather extremes across the Midwest and Northeast ‘climate change’ caused by humans.”

“It seems that some of our leaders have forgotten the following: Abraham Lincoln, in the Gettysburg Address said, ‘government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.’ Daniel Webster stated, ‘It is, sir, the people’s government, made for the people, made by the people, and answerable to the people. The people of the United States have declared that this Constitution shall be the supreme law.’”

“Who does the Gilbert Public School Board answer to? Board members are the ‘bosses’ over the superintendents, teachers, and staff. When administration is displeased with Board performance, they are forced into professional silence. So it looks like the ‘bosses’ are those who hired them in the first place — the voters. When board members overstep their bounds, insult teachers and parents, invent stories about staff and administrators, they have clearly failed in their duties. Thus, a fervent demand for resignation from the ‘bosses’ to three board members is NOT a junior high reaction, as it was once mocked to be. Instead, it’s a responsible, carefully thought-out plea to put our district back on top where it belongs. Bosses, let your voices be heard!”

“I can see it now! A man’s man and a woman’s woman. Putin-Palin 2016, the commie and the mommy. A take-charge leader who’s not afraid to make decisions regardless of international opinion and ... a guy who wrestles bears. Or, a rogue despot invading a neighboring country and someone who really DOES wear ‘mom jeans’. Get your bumper sticker now!”
