FLINT, MICHIGAN: THE REAL DEAL! Why Michigan’s Republican Governor, Rick Snyder, Switched Flint’s Water Source From Detroit Water System To The General Motors Industrial Toxins/Poisoned Dump Site River So Governor Could Privatize Garbage Collection, Public Parks, Santa Claus & Water While Building A New Pipeline In Interim To ‘Save Citizens Money’. You Know That Was A BIG LIE/EXCUSE! In Michigan, Just Like In New York Where Cuomo Plans Privatized Charter Schools VIA COMMON CORE FAILURES, This Governor, Via His Appointee Emergency Manager, Sells Off Assets In Poor (BLACK) Michigan Communities To Acquire PERSONAL KICKBACKS From Capitalist ‘GHETTO PROFITEERS’! It’s All About PRIVATIZATION & GREENBACK$!

AMY GOODMAN: I’m Amy Goodman. This is Democracy Now! We’re in Flint, Michigan, at the Golden Gate Restaurant. It’s a cold, snowy Saturday morning. Inside, the Flint Democracy Defense League is having breakfast and a meeting. I want to go in and talk to Claire McClinton. She’s one of the lead organizers for democracy in Flint against the poisoning of the Flint water. She’s been challenging the emergency managers for years. Let’s go inside.

CLAIRE McCLINTON: In 2011, this governor, Governor Snyder, signed into law a law called the Emergency Manager Law. It enabled the Governor to send an Emergency Manager, under the guise of being fiscally responsible, to cities and school districts that they deemed financially in fiscal crisis. It just so happened most of these places were majority African-American cities. Privatizing services and selling off assets, that’s their main purpose. Well, here in Flint, they’ve privatized our garbage collection. They’ve sold off our parks.

Blowback Focuses Attention On Politicians’ Acts Designed To Put Money In Their Own Pockets – Even At The Expense Of Children’s Education. Who Do You Think Is Paying For All Those PR Ads Praising Governor Cuomo’s Education Initiatives? Did You Say, “Hedge Fund Investors In Charter Schools”? If You Did, Go To Head Of The Class!

Readers, Tabacco wants you to do this math problem:
101 x 101 is what? Careful! It’s not as easy as it looks! Now what’s your Answer – before you read this Post please! Continue reading

POLITICS IS A DIRTY BUSINESS! But Politicians’ Diabolically Underhanded Tactics Are Not That Different From Tactics Of Prepubescent Children. Children Are Mischievous, Imitative & Selfish – Politicians Are Selfish, Imitative & Mischievous! That Is A Distinction Without A Difference – A Mere Matter Of Emphasis!

A ‘Frasier’ Episode: Frasier’s and Lilith’s son attempts to make his parents feel GUILTY so they will buy him a scooter.

A NYS Episode: Governor Cuomo of NYS & his ‘Common Core’ Initiative! By Installing Machiavellian TESTS, which ensure a Majority of Test Takers will FAIL, Cuomo hopes to use those FAILURES to Justify to the Voters/Parents why he must validate 100 New Charter Schools in the State.

In the event you believe only Democrats do stuff like that, allow me: Bush-Cheney went looking for and found a Secret Witness (whom they would not identify) to tie Saddam Hussein to 9/11/2001, which he was not, so Bush Administration could INVADE Iraq, cancelling Saddam’s Oil Deals with Germans, French & Russians while EXCLUDING USA!

See, it’s not a Democrat or Republican thing; it’s a DIRTY POLITICIAN THING!

I love the Concept of REMOVING ALL DIRTY POLITICIANS FROM OFFICE! Unfortunately that means the Republicans in Congress would total ZERO! Continue reading

Desperate Parents Once Again Are Being SUCKERED By Greedy Capitalists, Whose Primary Goal is PROFIT, NOT EDUCATIION! Dark Secret: 70% Of Charter Schools Do WORSE Than Public Schools In Their Districts – That Means Only 30% Excel! Betcha Didn’t Hear That On Those Anti-de Blasio Ads!

OPEN LETTER TO DESPERATE PARENTS! (In case you missed it or just forgot)

New York charter schools won a big victory Thursday when a judge ruled the state’s top fiscal officer can’t follow the money and look at their books. Continue reading

CHARTER SCHOOLS! Educational Salvation Or Another Capitalist PRIVATIZATION Plot To Get Rich Quick At The Expense Of Our Children? A Real Solution To America’s UNDEREDUCATION – Tabacco Editorial

CHARTER SCHOOLS: A HORRIFIC IDEA! CHARTER SCHOOLS = PRIVATIZATION OF PUBLIC SCHOOLS! Public Schools, no matter how bad, have Education as Prime Goal. Privatized Charter Schools, no matter how good, seek Maximizing Profits first! Bad Charter Schools get no Publicity – but most are BAD! The Problem with MOST BAD PUBLIC SCHOOL DISTRICTS is AMATEUR B.O.E. TRUSTEES and Profit Seeking Board VOLUNTEERS! Continue reading

How Republican President, Ronald Reagan, Diabolically And Surreptitiously Manipulated USPS Regulations To PRIVATIZE THE U.S. POSTAL SERVICE, Creating Profit Opportunities For FedEx, UPS, DHL & Other Disaster Capitalists! GOPers Rarely Play Fair!

“The reason for the deficit, they say, is a 2006 mandate that the postal service pre-fund 75-years of pension in a 10-year window, at a rate of $5.5 billion annually. Two independent actuaries have said that the post office has overpaid $50 billion into this fund.” – TABACCO: There are no 2-ways about it, folks! Reagan did this, not to protect Postal Employees (remember how he dealt with the Air Traffic Controllers), but to undermine the Post Office, making it susceptible to PRIVATIZATION! Continue reading

Michigan Voters Face YES & NO MIXED BAG OF INITIATIVES At Polls In November: (A) One Initiative seeks to enshrine collective bargaining rights in the state constitution to stave off future attacks on unions = VIABLE SOLUTION + (B) TROJAN HORSE: controversial state law that allows the governor to appoint an unelected emergency manager or corporation to take over financially distressed towns and cities and effectively fire elected officials = PRIVATIZATION OF CITIES/END OF “DEMOCRACY”. What If The Governor Is Republican: A Very Dangerous Precedent! All Republicans Have To Do Is Change Terminology, And Nobody Recognizes PRIVATIZATION & Reversing The Will Of The Electorate! Republicans Are Not So Smart; Democrats Are Just Gullible! Tails, They Win; Heads, We Lose! Mostly, I’m Ashamed To Be A Democrat!

AMY GOODMAN: Voters here in Michigan will be asked in November to decide the future of a controversial state law that allows the governor to appoint an unelected emergency manager or corporation to take over financially distressed towns and cities and effectively fire elected officials. The law, which is now on hold, empowers unelected managers to sell off public property, shred union contracts, privatize government services, without any input from local voters. Critics have described it as Michigan’s “local dictators” law. Continue reading
