California: The Rightwing Money Behind Marshall Tuck’s Campaign for Superintendent of Schools

21 Oct

Meet America’s Christian version of Islam’s Taliban, ISIS, and Al Qaeda. These alleged Christians are called “The Gathering” and they are ruthless and powerful. They are working hard to take over the United States and also take over all of our lives.

Diane Ravitch's blog

California political activist Karen Wolfe writes in this article about the rightwing money behind Marshall Tuck’s campaign to become State Superintendent of Public Instruction. The campaign has been well endowed by the usual crowd of billionaires who want to undermine school boards and expand the charter industry. Tuck has raised at least $25 million so far, an unprecedented amount for the job of state superintendent, reflecting how badly the billionaires want control of the state.

By the end of the campaign, Tuck will likely have collected at least $30 million, far exceeding Tony Thurmond’s $10 Million, most of it from teachers and people committed to public schools and opposed to corporate influence in the schools.

Tuck, writes Wolfe, “has the same pro-privatizing platform that voters rejected when he was defeated for the position four years ago, and it’s the same education platform of Republican presidential candidates Jeb Bush and John…

    And I guess we should vote. For what? The Founding Fathers ideas printed in history? It’s a new day. Don’t tell me religion and politics never got mixed. It always has and always will be. https://www.britannica.com/topic/The-Founding-Fathers-Deism-and-Christianity-1272214
    There is not difference between state and church, and no difference between democrats and republicans. Despite they say there is. Who’s the “they”? As long as it is “us” and “them” there will be constant divisions and wars. And not with words, with artillery. Fight for your freedom? Go for it. Enlist again. Or is there some age discrimination going on? Think about your inner belief (as mentioned in the article). You are what you think.

      I’m 73 and no matter how fit I am for my age I’m not in shape for the battlefield. A support position maybe, but not as a grunt. I have arthritis and bone spurs in both feet and one knee. Real bone spurs that I didn’t have when I was younger. The VA found them with scans.

      But I do manage the arthritis so it doesn’t cripple me. That means no thirty mile marches with 150 pounds on my back like we did in the Marines when I was in my early twenties. And no running because the puts a lot of pressure on joints.

      I’ve read that for every trooper in the field fighting, there are several in the back supporting them through supply, maintenance, intel, etc. If we have a Civil War, I could probably do that.

      I vote and hope that there will be enough liberals and progressives to hold back the Trumpian barbarians.
