Good News/Bad News: California Judge Rules Public School TEACHER TENURE UNCONSTITUTIONAL! I Love The Ruling But Fear The Implications! Good Conscientious Teachers Generally Do Not Require ‘Tenure’ Protections. But Disinterested, Lazy & Unqualified Teachers Do! Why Protect The Good, Who Don’t Need Protection, And Allow The Bad To Profit Without Merit! But The Implications Are Many: 1- Who Decides Which Teachers Are Worthy And Which Teachers Should Be Fired, 2- Are Pro-Charter School Advocates Behind This Lawsuit, 3- Are Funders Anti-Union Aristocrats & 4- What You Don’t Know Can Hurt You BADLY!

It’s not the eight or nine students, named in the lawsuit, it’s the unnamed Backers, who paid to pursue the lawsuit in the first place, that worry Tabacco and should worry you! Most ‘Blessings’ are mixed, and this one certainly is! 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

CAPITALISM’S OPEN SORES – DC: From Shutdown To Family Feuds! Democrats & Republicans Legislate Finally, But Internal Strife Is Order Of The Day. What It Does Include: Mitigates SEQUESTRATION! What It Does Not Include: UNEMPLOYMENT Compensation Extension – This Is Not Only Bad For Unemployed, But Also For Economy! But GOP Has To Show “Spending Cuts” For Its Maniacal Tea Partyers, Regardless Of Cost To Economic Growth. US Public Education Slipping – Do Test Scores Matter? Guns And Public Schools! Growing Inequality Gap Between Middleclass & Top 5% – Are You Still Singing “Virtues Of Capitalism”? – A Cursory Look At All The Current Topics Of Conversation: America In A Nutshell!

CHRISTINE ROMANS, CNN ANCHOR: Republican Representative, Paul Ryan, and Senator, Patty Murray, agreeing on a Deal. House Republicans passed it Thursday evening, and the Senate is expected to do the same next week.

It sets a Spending Limit and erases most of those steep, Across-The-Board-Cuts, scheduled for next year (SEQUESTRATION), and adds some other Cuts.

REP. PAUL RYAN, GOP Budget Committee Chairman: You can’t get everything you want, but you can get things done if you focus on that Common Ground area. Continue reading

The Vast Disparity Between Keynesian Economic Theory/Political Promises And Their Actual Practice In USA! Democrats Often Cannot Keep Theirs Because Republicans OBSTRUCT Anything Designed To Help ‘We The People’ Instead Of The Top 1%; Republicans Keep Their Promises Because They Never Promise ‘We The People’ Anything Anyway! And The Economic Textbooks Are Predicated On A World Dominated By Elite Countries Deploying Capitalism And Violating All Keynesian Tenets; Any Form Of Socialism Is OBSTRUCTED (There’s That Word Againl) Lest Other 3rd World Countries See The Possibilities Not Included Under Capitalism And ‘Domino Theory’ Stampede Over Capitalism On The Road To World Socialism! Why Do We Do Business With Communist China And NOT With Communist Cuba? Because Cuba Is Socialist & China Is Now Capitalist – IT WAS NEVER ABOUT COMMUNISM; IT WAS ALWAYS ABOUT SOCIALISM – Just One More Capitalist LIE!

Let’s analyze our Capitalist Axioms & see how many can actually hold water: Market Self-Correction, Deregulated Capitalism, Work Hard To Achieve, Business Creates Jobs, 2-Party System, One Man – One Vote, Free Trade, Free Enterprise, Lower Taxes, Middleclass Opportunity For All, Business Deregulation Good For All, A-Bomb Saved Lives, ‘National Security’ OPEC Wars, Exclusion of Military Expenditures From Budget, Incorporation, Social Security Failure, Medicare Failure, Public Education, Urban Renewal, Eminent Domain, NAFTA, Democracy, American Justice, Smaller Government, Americanism, & Right-To-Life Ulterior Motive! Economic Growth Forever. Almost NO KEYNESIAN or DEMOCRACY AXIOMS are actually adhered to in the USA! Capitalists give us Platitudes while they Lie, Cheat & Steal from each other and ‘We The People’! Both terms “Political Ethics” and “Economic Truisms” are OXYMORONS! Continue reading
