How Charter Schools Buy Political Support.  Pssst, legislators profiting off of charter schools is not, um, coincidental.

Trump Actions Triggering Health Premium Increases.  Highest proposed premium increase?: Wilmington, Delaware.  You read that right. Trini: You have the hammer. Use it.

It’s Not Affirmative Action That’s Depriving Asian Americans Of College Placements.  It’s privileged whites. Searching for a poster boy? Look no further than Jared Kushner.

    The cover essay in the new issue of the Atlantic is excellent and should be widely read.

    What leftists and hippies and New Age cultists created in the 1960s the right has perfected. Reality is dead.

    ….money quote…..

    “I’m reminded of one of H. L. Mencken’s dispatches from the Scopes ‘monkey trial’ in 1925. ‘Civilized’ Tennesseans, he wrote, ‘had known for years what was going on in the hills. They knew what the country preachers were preaching—what degraded nonsense was being rammed and hammered into yokel skulls. But they were afraid to go out against the imposture while it was in the making.’ What the contemporary right has done is worse, because it was deliberate and national, and it has had more-profound consequences.”

    In Delaware, why work for a charter and be a politician when you can just own the building and lease to a charter. Much more money in it that way.

    Is there a list I can get on to be able to cash in on all this?

  4. I’m sure there is. Nobody will ever share it with me, though…

    Trini couldn’t hammer out a bent nail. The toothless tiger and the hanger on pol are beyond useless. But you vote for crap you get crap. :)

    Insurance is pricing itself out of existence.

    It’s making my 12 minutes with my doctor for $175 seem like a bargain.
