Ugh… GET SMART America, and grow up. As long as the Parkland, FL students are doing the work adults should have been doing for the past 50-odd years, the very least YOU GUYS can do in return (as long as you’re sitting on your brains watching the Kardashian’s and The Bachelorette), is get jiggy on your pc’s and Mac’s. So listen-up!

But no one’s in Philadelphia covering this huge, digital/data-mining of children’s minds; this interweaving, interlocking tale of deep corrupt capitalism, now feeding on the brains, the desires of children, because everyone is covering, Donald’s yawning rants, or Tweets. I guess he really did make Trumperica great again.

HELLO! Once again, our neoliberal superhero, Morna McDermott, has found yet another corrupt corporate boondoggle of ethics, and civil rights violations (for starters) who couldn’t make enough easy construction profits the normal, briefcase-full-of-money-in-kickbacks way, right there in Maryland College Park. But don’t let me ruin the fun for you, check it out here, via A New School to Prison Pipeline that Might Surprise You.
