(Mensaje se repite en EspaƱol) In spending the Memorial Day weekend with an old teacher friend who lives and works in an upscale bedroom community out on Long Island, New York, I was unexpectedly enlightened by yet another lesson as to how the purposefully failed predominantly poor minority filled innercity public education systems in this country bear no resemblance to the still excellent public education that remains the rule in the suburbs, where the affluent middle class live and can still exert their substantial financial influence.

Why do a broad range of factions- that we commonly label as liberal- continue ad nauseum to content themselves with only reporting the latest irrational, depressing, and demoralizing behavior of our exclusively profit-driven corporate controlled American government?

They seem to purposefully avoid like the plague any ACTION designed to make their own progressive ideas the basis for more rational alternative actions by government.
