Re: “Betsy DeVos Exercises Her Freedom of $peech

I don't know if it's true, but I heard David Safier donated money to: ' Gangs? they're not so bad' academy, the Alaskan highway to nowhere Institute, Guvament needs more money foundation, and 'cyberbully the rich', nonprofit....
Life as we know it will soon end...

Re: “An Incomplete Look at the Koch Brothers' Influence in Arizona

Your use of the word "indoctrination" speaks volumes about the kind of person you are.

but taxes are always supposed to go down, not up, in the Koch's world

An ignorant statement that is false.

The Koch brothers oppose legislation like tax extenders, corporate subsidies, tax incentives corporations receive, and other corporate friendly legislation, even though that opposition is detrimental to their own businesses.

They are men of principle, not the bottom line.

Your article has done nothing more than show you have no nuance in your understanding of the Koch brothers, their philosophy, or work. All you have done is show you are a partisan hack who is more interested in creating a one sided liberal bogeyman caricature than the truth.

For anyone who is interested in a balanced short course on what the Koch Brothers really believe, Freakanomics Radio (hardly a conservative program) gives them a fair shake.

Re: “Betsy DeVos Exercises Her Freedom of $peech

I don't understand, how exactly did you "fool liberals" Mr. Rat Trollson?

Is it because you're posting under different names and getting different responses for semi confusing and misleading statements? You're no where else to be found in this comment thread except for the comment above mine, this is why I don't understand your comment. Is it possible that you had a comment removed before I accessed this article?

Either way, you are definitely pathetic if all you want to do is "fool liberals". There's a whole world out there, you should be exploring it instead of camping out on TW during your day to "fool liberals".

Re: “Room with a View

Mike Nelson has been writing and riffing well over 200+ Shows.... so I would not discredit the master of Riffing, just because you are Franco's little fan boy.

Re: “An Incomplete Look at the Koch Brothers' Influence in Arizona

If only you feared George Soros half as much. You need to try to find some balance. Nothing is ever as good or bad as we think it is, but this obsession with trashing the Koch's has become embarrassing.

Re: “Betsy DeVos Exercises Her Freedom of $peech

Again, thank you to a kind and generous family.
When our inner city, mainly minority students can barely read or even write. And end up in gangs and kill or shoot each other up. Choice is one idea, that gives parents a choice about there children's education. Let's face the truth, it's about the teachers union, and the all mighty dollar, they say it for the children, but let's be honest. It's about the benefits (Cadallic plans) and pay.
A majority of the population works 12 months, again it all comes down to money. There are a lot of people struggling to get a good education from there public schools, and having a choice gives them a oppertunity, to give there children a good chance to make it.
Another witch hunt, just because you don't agree with someone else's point of view. And all you do is talk about someones donations and money. And I bet the author has a friend or close family member whom is a school teacher, dollars to donuts, I bet.

Re: “Betsy DeVos Exercises Her Freedom of $peech

I'm at a loss to understand the intent of this article. A recitation of donations from the DeVos Foundation without any commentary or in-depth analysis of the group's motivations is nothing more than a dog whistle to those who equate DeVos to an enemy of public education.

I strolled over to 74 Media's site and was surprised to see a fairly typical series of posts and articles on a wide range of topics including an interesting, non-partisan piece on the Chan Zuckerberg initiatives. Also would note the large donations made to Princeton, University of Maryland, Michigan State and Ferris State hardly seem controversial.

Betsy DeVos is no champion of mine and her positions as Secretary of Education largely disgust me. But this writing, lazy and incomplete, almost makes me sympathetic to the charitable work of her family's foundation.

Re: “The New, New Jim Crow

The backlash against Obama had nothing to do with his race, it was completely about his policies:

13% growth as compared to Reagan at 32%

Combined math and reading scores down for the first time in history after "Race to the Top".

Spending another trillion on health care and death rates up.

Re: “Room with a View

No one's putting a gun to your head to watch it with Rifftrax. Don't put them down just because you're a hack writing another article about how "so bad it's good" The Room is. It's been out for 14 years.
