35. all sorts of benefits
There are all sorts of benefits from public infrastructure and public services. I can't believe that we have Democrats arguing the right wing side of this argument. Mind boggling. At least with Republicans we can see them coming, we know what they are up to, and can defend ourselves and there is no confusion. But this business of being wounded in the house of our friends, sabotaged and undermined from within, must stop. There is no more important fight.

If we cannot stand against privatization creeping into public education - uncompromisingly, steadfastly - then we stand for nothing and may as well pack it all up and go home and stop fooling ourselves and others.
