    His response is very defiant. And it was pointed out that there are legal benefits to remaining in office.

    Not all of it.
    I assume you know about Title I, yes?
    And then there are the laptops.
    And educational material.

    But that brings us back to the voting against our financial interest.

    Sending my money to ungrateful red states, fvck that, if Illinois wants to raise property taxes (or sales tax or what ever) and allocate that money across the state then so be it, I will vote for that. But fvck Mississippi, fvck West Virginia.

    I am actually surprised that State funding is now more than local, but I am ok with that.

    I’ll amend that to at least 50% federal funding. Lots of states don’t like that, because then they won’t have so much control over curriculum and standards, and they won’t be able to continue discriminatory practices.

    edit: I like the idea of federal government matching up to a certain dollar amount per student enrolled in public school.

    That assumes sending money to the states. Why not send it to local districts, avoiding the state. I mean, Milwaukee and Memphis are very much in need of funding, but letting the state government get their hands on those local school districts' (potential) money is problematic.

    That's the only thing my son admires Berhalter for is his sneaks. I, on the other hand, who knows nothing about $500 sneaks, still thinks he should've been fired.

    Daou moved to the dark side years ago. IIRC, he turned on the Democrats after HRC got the nomination in 2016.

    And yes--that's a remarkably stupid analogy.

    Nope, it was Bernie not winning in 2020 that changed him.

    Not surprising at all. He has 0 chance of winning regardless of how he runs. The entire point of his campaign is to siphon votes away from Biden to give Trump a chance, given that fascist you support could never win the popular vote.

    I'm inclined to think that RFKJr siphons off as many dumbshits from the right as he does from the left.

    I'm not as convinced of that. If they're on the right they believe Democrats are inherently immoral and godless people, so they'll stick with their preferred candidate who agrees with the murder of his former VP and alludes to the execution of Milley because they were loyal to the country instead of to him.

    You're absolutely right. Trump supporters are in a cult and they're not skipping out on their cult leader for anything.

    The purpose of RFK Jr or anyone who's not Biden is to give never-Trumpers an option to vote for someone who's not Biden. That's the only reason they're in the race - to take votes away from Biden.

    There's an actual RFK sign on my street. So far my only other exposure to it was bumper stickers, including one on a van that was like if Janice Soprano never gave up her hippiedom.

    TIL that Chesebro was on Team Gore challenging the Bush win. I think that is a Dem failure.
