    CHIP, CHIP, CHIP…..[/B]

    The sound of the Reich slowly chipping away government control and power. Their plan, since Obama took office, is to destroy government. You see, if they get it so small and powerless it will become totally useless. And give more power to private industry and campaign support.

    Governor Sandoval of Nevada has a plan to cut millions in education spending (public education) (in order to balance the budget)and give millions to voucher program to be used in private schools. To those parents who want to opt our of public schools, each child could get $2500 to $5100 a year to attend school of their choice.

    Another subtle attack on public education, disadvantaged students and teachers and on a fast track to privatizing education. $100,000 in vouchers in Nevada.
    Voucher program leaves children behind in schools that are already hurting with less to work with. Sandoval is taking from public education and giving to private education.

    They will not stop at unions, healthcare, education and government. Then there will social security, Medicare, welfare, libraries, military, prisons, law enforcement, homeland security, fire department, teachers, county and state government, wholesale and retail, post office, state liquor stores, marijuana sales, etc. This is just the beginning of private take over of our lives. A dictatorship by a few.

    Privatization is a take over of our lives, more control then the present government.

    Absolutely.

    Conservatives love one-party rule where no one votes and the rich have all the power. Like a Kingdom.

    You don't think there could be maybe three or four PRIVATE gas companies and three or four PRIVATE automobile manufacturers ? We can't all be worker bees ya know. If things worked out you might even be able to own one of those private companies

    Wasn't it the private sector, particularily Wall Street, that was primarily responsible for creating this financial mentdown!

    If government contracts leaving a power vacuum, it won't take long before America is totally turned over to the "tender mercies" of many of the same people who destroyed the economy back in 2008!

    Meanwhile the Republicans are busy diverting attention away from their responsibility in this affair, by "demonizing" the public sector.

    Ah yes, here is the Conservative ideal of privatization.

    Opinion: Leonard Pitts Jr.: Justice is served for judge who denied it to children - San Jose Mercury News

    Thousands of children came before Ciavarella for relatively minor offenses -- throwing meat at mom's boyfriend, shoplifting a jar of nutmeg. And in trials that lasted as little as a minute, child after child after child was shackled and led away without even being allowed to speak in their own defense or have a lawyer do so for them.

    What's more appalling than the "what" of this is the "why." Ciavarella and another judge, Michael Conahan, shut down the county's juvenile detention center by cutting off public funds. Then they funneled kids to two new detention centers, privately owned by the judges' friends, who had given them nearly $1 million. Ciavarella has steadfastly denied a quid pro quo -- cash for kids. He says the money was a "finder's fee" for putting the jail's owner in touch with a builder. However the arrangement is characterized, the fact remains that he and Conahan, who pleaded guilty last year, took money from the owners of a private prison to which they then sentenced children. You be the -- no pun intended -- judge.

    Someone needs to make up their minds. I keep hearing that the government failed at properly regulating it was the cause. So were there too many crooks or not enough cops ?
