https://www.bigeasymagazine.com/2018/12/21/charter-schools-and-race-in-new-orleans/
>Thursday night, New Orleans public schools as we knew them ended. With a 5-2 vote by the Orleans Parish School Board, the last remaining public high school in New Orleans became its latest charter school.

>In a room filled to capacity, replete with security, protesters, placards, chants, and shouts of dissatisfaction, McDonogh 35 Senior High School’s future was turned over to charter school group InspireNOLA. Many were outraged, some were left in tears, but it changed nothing.

>With the 5-2 decision, New Orleans became the first city in the United States to turn its entire school system over to an all-charter system. Oddly, with this vote, the OPSB appears to have ceded much of its own authority by default to InspireNOLA, although the McDonogh Alumni Association had called on the board to maintain direct control over the school.

>Groups protesting included parents, students, Friends and Family of Incarcerated Children (FFLIC), and the NAACP.

>Karen Marshall, the Executive Director with Rethink New Orleans, a group that organizes black youth, says, “I think there is an entire system of privatization to undercut specifically poor black youth in our communities. It’s the practice of giving public spaces to private organizations…it’s how you undercut the power in the community. It’s specific and it’s targeted.”

Good on you for at least seeing the full picture of it, police unions are the only ones left with any political power.

I worked at a unionized hotel once, it was hell, there was just that handful of people who read the union handbook front to back and were really clear on their rights to not work as hard as the phillipino kids who hadn't paid their dues yet. But idk, that feels like more the consequences of what a union can actually accomplish in the 21st century, and in Canada so its not like they're fighting to get their workers a living wage.

This is true. The most corrupt group of people well known for destroying freedom and opportunity in this country are the police, and they have the strongest unions. Honestly they are completely subverting our democracy with all their backroom deals and welfare state benefits and massive pensions and a good step to fixing our country would be busting all the teacher and police unions and forcing them to work like honest Americans for once.

I, for one, am glad that we didn't start a World War over a few horny insects:
https://theintercept.com/2019/01/07/nbc-and-msnbc-blamed-russia-for-using-sophisticated-microwaves-to-cause-brain-injuries-in-u-s-diplomats-in-cuba-the-culprits-were-likely-crickets/
>Last September – on the symbolically meaningful date of September 11 – NBC and MSNBC breathlessly trumpeted what they regarded as a major exclusive scoop: that Russia is “the main suspect” in what the network called “mysterious attacks” that led to “brain injuries” in U.S. personnel in Cuba.” They put CIA loyalist Ken Dilanian on the air to explain – based, needless to say, on the script given to him by intelligence officials who, as always, are shielded from accountability by them with anonymity – that “sophisticated microwaves or another type of electromagnetic weapon were likely used on the U.S. government workers” and that it was Russia which likely engineered the attack.

>In 2017, Associated Press obtained and published recordings of the sounds the embassy personnel complained of hearing. Rather than being the by-product of some sort of Bond-villain weapon cooked up in Kremlin laboratories, the scientists concluded that the sounds match those made by a specific species of Caribbean crickets during mating season

>One of the scientists, Dr. Stubbs, emphasized the certainty of their findings in an interview with the New York Times: “I can say fairly definitively is that the A.P.-released recording is of a cricket, and we think we know what species it is.” The villain behind the noises is the male indies short-tailed cricket, pictured below in what NBC News may soon use as his Interpol mugshot

>Indeed – contrary to the sensationalistic MSNBC screen graphics – serious doubt has been cast on whether U.S. “diplomats” in Cuba even suffered brain injuries at all. As the Guardian’s Science Editor, Ian Sample, reported in August: “Claims that US diplomats suffered mysterious brain injuries after being targeted with a secret weapon in Cuba have been challenged by neurologists and other brain specialists.”

TOKYO

Japan released video footage Friday it said proved a South Korean warship locked its fire-control radar onto a Japanese warplane off the northeastern coast in the latest move of an escalating row between the Asian neighbors.

The Defense Ministry's just over 13-minute footage, filmed from the P-1 patrol aircraft, contained voices of Japanese crewmembers asking the destroyer for clarification but getting no response.

Japan alleged that the South Korean destroyer repeatedly locked its targeting radar on the Japanese aircraft Dec. 21 inside of Japan's exclusive economic waters off the Noto Peninsula. A lock with fire-control radar is considered a hostile act and only one step away from actual firing.

South Korea has denied the allegation, saying its warship used an optical camera while rescuing a North Korean fishing boat in distress. Seoul's Defense Ministry expressed "deep regret and concern" over Japan's release of the video a day after the countries' military officials held a video conference to resolve what Seoul described Tokyo's "misunderstanding."

I've never understood what is to be done with illegal immigrants that are minors apprehended when crossing the border. When the parents are apprehended, what do you do with this poor child? Either you put them in a detention facility with their parents, which is basically a pre-deportation prison, or you separate them. The fact that parents were separated from their children in a way that they lost all communication with them is the travesty, not the fact they were separated in the first place. Parents shouldn't be up in arms because their kids can't come to jail with them and are lost with no resources when they commit a crime.

The fact is that the US has been way too soft on illegal immigration for far too long, and this is why situations like this happen. Parents hear anecdotal stories about coming to the US and then terrible things happen when the reality of violating the imaginary line sets in.

>Despite pressure from progressive Democrats, the House rules package for the 116th Congress will include a pay-as-you-go provision, requiring all new spending to be offset with either budget cuts or tax increases, a conservative policy aimed at tying the hands of government.

>Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who will be sworn in this week to represent a district in New York, will vote against the package, her spokesperson told The Intercept. Rep. Ro Khanna, D-Calif., announced Wednesday that he would oppose it.

>Presumptive House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who will be sworn in on Thursday, has promised for months to restore the pay-go rule, which she instituted when first taking over the speaker’s gavel in 2007. She ran into resistance from progressives, who believe that the rule would make it more difficult for Democrats to pass a host of liberal agenda items, from “Medicare for All” to a Green New Deal to tuition-free public college. Critics also argue that pay-go creates an unlevel playing field, where Republicans get to blow giant holes in the tax code, as they did with the 2017 tax cuts, while Democrats must pay fealty to the deficit.

Actually they're too easy on the wall. That wall might as well be a monument to Ann Coulter and Trump. It's essentially a symbol of hate, fear, xenophobia, team sports politics, a right wing insurgency and Trump's ego. Seriously, fuck that wall. It ain't doing shit to secure the border. A ladder, rope or tunnel can get passed a wall. It's just a symbol that says "na-na na-na boo boo go away brown people Trump is the bestest".

Nice depress the oppositional vote to Trump and his merry band of fascists. What are you from Saudi Arabia or something?

Yes. I'm glad we could agree on that. And we also agree that they are going too easy on the wall. The bigger problem is that they are also going too easy on everything else, and often just straight up giving him what he wants.

>Ya because Republicans are renowned for being anti-corporate, anti-war, anti-Israel, pro-environment and pro-poor.
Which are all reasons why working with the Republicans is such a bad thing. And, with the occasional exception of mild pro-environmental rhetoric, these are all things Pelosi happily works with the Republicans on. If the criticism you're responding to is that Pelosi is too conciliatory to Republicans then pointing out how much Republicans suck as a retort doesn't actually do her any favors, I hope you realize.

It's also worth pointing out that you didn't even disagree with my characterization of Pelosi with respect to those labels, so that's pretty neat.

Oh boy is there a lot going on here. A few things:

  1. Nancy Pelosi is not running for president. Criticizing her does not equate to votes for Trump in the presidential general election, because Pelosi is not participating in that.
  2. Intraparty opposition does not happen in general elections. Selecting a party leader that would actually act on behalf of the voters rather than the enemy or as you apparently like to call it, "oppositional cannibalism" happens via primaries, leadership votes and internal party pressure. Criticizing Pelosi does not equate to votes for Republicans, because Republicans do not participate in these things.
  3. I don't know what "oppositional cannibalism" is supposed to mean, but it sounds like an oxymoron.

>The 53-year-old, who had held the post since 1998, underwent more than five hours of surgery overnight. “We couldn’t win,” said Poland’s health minister, Łukasz Szumowski, on Monday afternoon.

>Adamowicz, a popular, liberal mayor, had long been considered a hate figure in far-right circles for his vigorous defence of migrants and refugees and LGBT rights, but no evidence has emerged that the attack was politically motivated.

>Some in Poland are blaming the attack on a more general rise in social tensions and an increasing prevalence of hate speech. Even before his death, silent protests had been planned in a number of cities on Monday.

>As mayor he was a progressive voice, supporting sex education in schools, LGBT rights and tolerance for minorities. He showed solidarity with the Jewish community when windows at Gdańsk synagogue were broken last year, strongly denouncing the vandalism.

This. Poland is just pissed off because the krauts started this "polish death camps" meme, as if German occupied Poland administered by Nazi Germany had anything to do with it which is especially insulting because the Germans executed Poles in the Holocaust too. Israel can go fuck themselves. This is purely a cash grab on their part now that the Polish economy is starting to do okay. The only thing Poland denied was that they did the holocaust. I cannot say it enough Israel can go fuck themselves.

Nothing nazi related. The guy said he got imprisoned for no reason and blamed the mayor. Now he's going to be imprisoned for a reason. Also he robbed banks before ending up in jail.


Ammon Bundy abandons militia movement in solidarity with migrants by David Grimbury - Tue, 11 Dec 2018 11:43:45 EST ID:X65MCWOm No.172939 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

Remember that crazy Mormon rancher family that became darlings of the right by threatening government agents with guns?

Turns out they got too woke and quit the militia movement out solidarity with the migrants, and now their followers are mad:
http://nymag.com/intelligencer/2018/12/ammon-bundy-quits-militia-movement-defends-migrant-caravan.html
>Bizarrely, the following that Bundy had amassed by threatening insurrectionary violence against Barack Obama’s government did not take kindly to his call for solidarity with the oppressed of Central America.

>“It’s like being in a room full of people in here, trying to teach, and no one is listening,” Bundy told BuzzFeed News this week. “The vast majority seemed to hang on to what seemed like hate, and fear, and almost warmongering, and I don’t want to associate myself with warmongers.”

>Thus, Bundy shut down his social-media accounts Tuesday, and announced that he was cutting ties with the “patriot groups” that had once rallied to the cause of helping his dad shirk over $1 million in grazing fees.

>As Hernandez notes, Bundy’s heretical hostility to xenophobic hate isn’t as out of character as it might appear to a lay audience. While the Bundys are heroes to a movement associated with militant nativism, they’ve always belonged to a peculiar strand of the American militia movement — one whose hostility to the federal government is rooted less in white nationalism than a libertarian Mormonism that honors the Church of Latter-day Saints’ traditional support for refugees.

I love how people make stuff up just to get angry at it.

Like holy shit, if you want to get angry about politics, there's a baby in the White House threatening to keep the government shut down until he gets his bottle, excuse me, wall. A wall that no one else wants to pay for, not even his party.

You don't need to pretend your Dwayne Johnson fanfic is real to be upset about something.

>Democratic leaders on Thursday tapped Rep. Kathy Castor (D-Fla.) to head a revived U.S. House panel on climate change, all but ending a dramatic monthlong effort to establish a select committee on a Green New Deal.

>Castor’s appointment came as a surprise to proponents of a Green New Deal. The move also kicked off a controversy as the six-term congresswoman dismissed calls to bar members who accept money from fossil fuel companies from serving on the committee, arguing it would violate free speech rights.

>Despite weeks of protests demanding House Democrats focus efforts next year on drafting a Green New Deal, the sort of sweeping economic policy that scientists say matches the scale of the climate crisis, Castor told E&E News the plan was “not going to be our sole focus.”

>That reasoning echoed arguments Exxon Mobil Corp. made in court as recently as this year to defend its funding of right-wing think tanks that deliberately produced misinformation about climate science to stymie government action on global warming.

Its the common conservative straw-man of University, where if it isn't a hard science (or I should say, study that corps want) its "Useless Liberal Arts". Notice that Liberal Arts isn't a study. Its just a catch all for stuff he doesn't like. Anything that teaches critical thinking is heresy, obviously.

Welp I have no dogs in this fight and don't give a shit what this nation does as long as I can live in my cabin in the woods and not be bothered.

But I'm pretty sure that in the US at least, universal free education would need some severe qualifiers. Otherwise you'd have classes with 1000 students each and then after the first test it would collapse down to 30-40 people. Maybe having 5-10 passing. I've been through college 2 times in my life and graduated neither time. The first round was trade school which was where basically an entirely black, late 20's to 40's age group and impoverished student body went to try and get their life together and stop working at Wendy's. Basically, in the general studies classes, all but the springboard lower middle class white kids flunked out before the first midterm. Usually in mathematics or sciences classes. In just basic college algebra, my class of 40-50 students ended up with 7 taking the final. All of them being under the age of 21. We see this with MOOCS as well. You have thousands of people who enroll for a free or extremely deeply discounted tuition and then maybe half show up for the first lecture, a 20th for the first test and maybe a 100th who pass the class. I attended a wealthy private arts school as well. The same story is applicable as well with most of the kids being undisciplined yuppies instead of just too stupid or too far out of the academic system to function.

It is a lot easier saying we can do something that sounds like a fantastic humanitarian idea but it is another to implement it and have it work. I really, sincerely doubt the United States is competent enough to:

>Agree on legislation in completely uncharted territory that will take billions of tax dollars to work.
>Pass said legislation.
>Fight the lawsuits from the college board, private colleges, and the student debt industry.
>Build a network of functional and fair colleges that are state funded and open to literally everyone who qualifies.
>Set up a qualification system so that teachers and classes don't get overburdened with masses of repeat flunkies.
>Set up a system to combat abuse of the system. Seems like a good way to get free dorms and food, no? Just keep going back to college because it is free?
>Have this system work long enough and successfully enough that it doesn't collapse and create a worse situation.
>Deal with state-wide regulations and changes/implementations of the system.
>Finally realize the benefits of a free college attempt. If there even are any.

>A new analysis by one of the nation's top public interest advocacy groups shows that even as the planet and humanity face an existential threat due to the climate crisis, most corporate media outlets in the U.S. have largely ignored the urgent need for a Green New Deal and the growing political movement demanding it.

>Between Nov. 1 to Dec. 28 of last year, according to the group's new study, major news networks barely covered the Green New Deal—and the majority of TV coverage was from Fox News. The network covered the plan in a negative light in eight segments, warning viewers that the Green New Deal could lead to the kinds of violent protests that France has seen in recent months from the Yellow Vest movement and that the plan would lead to higher taxes for middle- and lower-class Americans.

>The Bolivian government under President Evo Morales has officially begun to register citizens for free universal health care that will be available in March.

>Health Minister Adolfo Zarate announced that a brigade of healthcare officials will go door-to-door throughout the country to register uninsured Bolivians between the ages of five and 60 until Jan. 28 in an initial phase. After that, registration will be continual.

>Zarate said that registration will take less than two minutes and informs residents of the precise location of their nearest healthcare facilities. Bolivians will also be able to register for the free, public healthcare at local health fairs.

>Starting in March the UHS will provide all Bolivians without insurance with free, quality medical attention that currently citizens have to pay for out of pocket or take out private insurance to cover. The government says that private insurance plans and people over the age of 60 already covered by social security will not be affected by the new plan.

This person seems very confused about basic facts about Bolivia, for example Evo Morales does have term limits, he's simply been reelected twice, largely because his presidency has overseen massive economic growth and a rise of living standards for the average Bolivian.

Accusations like "looting the country" seem more appropriate to aim at the previous government, which was in full on neo-liberal pro-foreign business globalization can only mean good for everyone mode when it was toppled after protests sparked by them privatizing the water supplies in a major city, and the private company promptly tripling the prices.

Cuban doctors are not illegal in Bolivia, I'm really not sure where he's even coming with this one because Cuban doctors aren't illegal in America either, and as a poor country without many if its own I'm sure they glad to see any increase of doctors at all.

I don't know dick about Bolivia, but a few minutes of googling is making most of what this guy says just look like standard Reagan era right wing fear mongering.

Evo Morales is about as good as a caudillo can get. The problem with the caudillo form is that the success of the whole political-economic project depends on the survival of the caudillo. Cuba maintains its system because it has a semi-functional mass democracy that keeps people sufficiently engaged in the running of their own affairs. If Bolivia is just a machine democracy, a purely "formal" democracy where people vote for the Big Man because that's just how it is, then the project dies with Morales.
