I have written about this neoliberalization crap all day long for almost a decade now and as it unfolds it still makes me as sick as the first day I figured out what these fascist bastards were really up to.
Trump’s VP, Pence, had to step in and break the tie vote in the senate and so the billionaire privatizer who’s married to the Amway pyramid scheme fortune and the sister of Eric Prince (former owner of Blackwater and a guy looking forward to when he can cash in on the new Phoenix Program right here in America) is now your Secretary of Education.
Her goal, now that her cover is blown, will be to privatize as much of the Department of Education as she can, making billions in profits for her colleagues in the charter business while cheating at least a generation of young poor Americans out of their education.
This isn’t about conservative verses liberal ideology. This is about bringing Milton Friedman’s economic brick to America and watching the Miracle of Chile being imposed on us in slow motion. School for profit ideology is sickening just like running prisons for profit or police for profit or wars for profit. It is all the same. And it sickens me.
Donald Trump has done a lot of things already that make me proud to have refused to vote for him. This tops the list thus far. Makes you kinda wonder what he has up his sleeve next, doesn’t it?
