For many years the Republican Party has done everything in their power to deprive poor and middle class children of their right to an education. Then they get to spend the money educating rich kids. Also, the ignorant are more easy to control, and the only chance Republicans have to stay in power long term is to create an electorate with no critical thinking skills, one that will react as programmed to mindless Republican propaganda. Sadly, that is now possible, and Elizabeth Warren thinks it stinks!

As I said in the open thread, there is a multitude of petitions opposing this budget on various grounds. And education, of course, is one. "They want to make sure that more students stay in debt longer." Yeah, that'll do. But they don't want "those people" to get loans and attempt to get educated in the first place. As you say so well, TC.

RESIST AND PERSIST !!!

Vouchers segregate schools and private schools rarely meet the needs of special needs students who qualify under IDEA where public schools must adequately serve (I think that was the term from the recent SCOTUS decision related to a child with autism). Warren was an educator who certainly is qualified to school DeVos, if the latter is capable of learning her job.

De Vos is just the latest version of the wicked witch, or Cruella De Ville, even better! Donny Boy proposed, and the Rethugs approved, the toxic cabinet choices. Each one fits into their long term agenda to destroy anything that is sensible in the way the country is run, for the sake of greed! And, they all like o think of themselves as good Christians! Too bad the idea of Hell is nothing but ancient myth, derived from ancient Zoroastrian concepts. Once they created something of Light, like their God, there had to be a counter-point of Dark!

It seems to me that the child denied proper affordable education and opportunities might have been the one to discover a cure for cancer had the education and opportunities been available. Elizabeth Warren is correct. People can't stop dreaming but they must fight for those dreams.

Drumpfenfarten and his cabal of unqualified Republican sycophants must be tossed to the side of the road like yesterday's trash if the country is to survive. No recycling!

Resist and Persist!!!

Elizabeth Warren has reason to be furious and you can leave it to her to state within moments clearly and precisely what is wrong with this new Budget. Kudos to Liz!

The deliberate "dumbing down" of America by Republicans has been the subject of many a post here, but never before has it been so blatantly effected by an administration that has been handpicked for its own incompetence and stupidity. Betsy DeVos' "budget" is despicable and has no basis beyond greed, selfishness and elitism thinly veiled as "smaller government and less governmental interfering". It doesn't seem to matter that these cuts are diagonally opposed to anything that remotely makes America great again. It only makes the rich white 1% richer and more powerful. If DeVos is anything to go by, it doesn't make them any smarter.

Of course DeVos' educational budget and its insufferable cuts are an upbeat to the Drumpfian new tax plan, which needs to cut down on everything going to the 99% to give more to the 1% and in the coming days we'll undoubtedly hear of many more of these budget cuts. They need to be resisted and fought, every one of them.

RESIST & PERSIST!

All of trump's folks are so very full of concern and compassion for those less fortunate. If I had my druthers, they'd all be homeless and hungry for a good six months so they could see how life is for others.

Just keep up the opposition! The alternative of passivity spells disaster for most people of this country and others. At least slow down the tyranny takeover and maintain a steady goal of work towards a fair and equitable governing nation. Otherwise they'll eat us up alive and won't look back. And, they'll do it all claiming that they have our best interests in mind. Not so, - don't fall for the shell game. Attracting others by suggesting a 'win' if you play along, - that's the whole game, - in a nutshell. There are so many who are involved, because that's the only way to organize a protective shield. It's been played for thousands of years, and quite successfully. However, now that the Internet has changed our reality, we can correspond and fight back much better than before!

The ONLY way out of ALL of our problems is through EDUCATION! We need educated thinkers, not ignorant fools. Education keeps us free, enables us to move forward, keeps us healthy as a Nation. NONE of which the conservatives seem to want. REMEMBER MIDTERMS!!!!! GET OUT AND VOTE!!!!!

This is a horrendous budget in many ways and areas and I agree speak up people. If you have never wrote to Congress do so now, if you have never called, do so now. And more in Congress need to speak out as clearly as Elizabeth Warren.

Our children ARE the FUTURE of THIS NATION. This is final destruction of what generation of Americans stood up and fought for, worked their fingers to the bone for, their blood, sweat, toil, and tears to have this kleptocracy happen.

Fight for your children and grandchildren, they are depending upon us to do so. I was able to use an actual event to teach my grandchild a civic lesson not long ago when Betsy DeVos was going to speak at Bethune Cookman nearby in Daytona. As I'm homeschooling her this year we took the time to stand outside with the students, parents, teachers, and others who felt like I did about Betsy DeVos. We all need to seize the time if an opportunity is presented to us to place our bodies and voices together as one.

I also posted a story about that event for those who would care to view it. Why I Turned My Back On Betsy DeVos At Graduation

RESIST and PERSIST against the Wicked Witch of the Midwest! Putting DeVos (and the last two letters in her name should be I and L, not O and S) in charge of education - and in the USA, our educational system is already a big enough joke - was a yuuuuuuge mistake. The hoary cliché of putting a fox in charge of the henhouse doesn't even begin to describe it.
