Bill Moyers dares to speak truth to power and us all – even the most deluded of us all.
“Bill reports on the hypocrisy of ‘justice for all’ in a society where billions are squandered for a war born in fraud while the poor are pushed aside. Turns out true justice — not just the word we recite from the Pledge of Allegiance — is still unaffordable for those who need it most.” As a matter of fact, it’s not only the poor, it is also the middle class, who are being denied justice in a country ruled by money and the few who control most of it.

Since equal access to education is a basic premise for all that America stands for, denial of this is where Rahm Emanuel and his ilk nationwide are guiltiest of un-American activities.
How do we know Rahm and his democratic and republican cronies are selling America to the highest bidders? Using rigged test scores and making insane rules for public schools sets the stage for what?
His millionaire and billionaire appointees to the Board of Education close schools in which areas to rid themselves of the risk of paying fair taxes to alleviate the poverty which is at the heart of the school/student failure problem?
These school board members, past and present, inflict a “those versus our” morality of what is right for those children is not what we deem right for our children. Penny Pritzker, Ellen Alberding and Rahm send their children to good schools as other children attend schools with no libraries, nurses, art, music, P.E., or even recess in the curriculum and schedule.
Well, the truth for all of us is one of basic justice. Stating “justice” in the Pledge of Allegiance as billionaires and multinational mega-corporations pay their toadies and lapdogs to make a mockery of what our country stands for is intolerable. Inflicting this gross injustice on children is child abuse.
It comes down to this.
Either equal access to education is a civil right, or the USA is a banana republic ruled by a plutocracy.
