    Did you know that you just proved the point of this strip while trying to sound like you weren’t?

    The Supremes have accepted review of a decision on whether lying about an opponent is okay in politics. If they say yes then democracy is well and truly done for.

    “The Supremes have accepted review of a decision on whether lying about an opponent is okay in politics.”

    It won’t matter, spyderred. The politicians will just switch from outright lies to extreme innuendos.

    Have to agree with the ’toon, no end of stupid on either side, but the balance has shifted dramatically to the right since “Reagan the true Messiah” reigned, and his acolytes took control, later poisoning the tea they were passing out, ruffies???

    The cartoon is about common core, which is a good idea. I have to say, however, that the lies about it that I’ve seen come entirely from the right. (For the record, it’s not a federal program, it was designed by the state governments, and Obama has nothing whatsoever to do with it. Unfortunately, he once said that he thought that improving education would be a good idea, and that’s enough to turn the GOP against anything these days.)

    It’s not good when it’s possible to make a political career based on opposition to education.

    “The cartoon is about common core, which is a good idea. I have to say, however, that the lies about it that I’ve seen come entirely from the right.”

    Teachers’ Unions are not happy with Common Core. Like certain other government programs, people who supported the theory don’t like the result. My main concern is that Common Core may promote “teaching to the test”.

    (For the record, it’s not a federal program, it was designed by the state governments, and Obama has nothing whatsoever to do with it. Unfortunately, he once said that he thought that improving education would be a good idea, and that’s enough to turn the GOP against anything these days.)"

    Common Core wasn’t developed by the Feds, but Obama approves of it & is using Federal Funds to push states to adopt Common Core. Race to the Top grants & waivers to No Child Left Behind have been tied to adopting Common Core.

    Some of us were against centralizing everything long before Obama. He’s just the current face of that goal, which many among both parties support. Exhibit B. would be the NSA.

    Look at Arne Duncan’s track record & tell me you think Obama is on the right page with education.

    Actually, that’s a great picture of the real Common Core – a rotten apple.
