    to Reagan's administration when he directed his SecEd. to find a way to eliminate the cabinet position and department.  He couldn't do it.  I've written a diary about this series of regressive events.

    Newt Gingrich's infamous "Contract With America" also called for the disassembling of that and public education.  In their tiny right wing brains, everybody should go to private schools while the public pays for it.  Isn't that their right to stealing?

    I think there are some really, really evil people afoot who want a plutocratic oligarchy, not a Democracy, and they want to be the plutocrats.  George Orwell would be in apoplexy if he saw what we have today.
