Prison vs School: The Tour


'The War on Kids' shows how American public schools have failed in their mission to provide education, erode the country's democratic foundation by denying the most basic civil rights to youth, and often resemble prisons.

Traffic - Low Spark Of High Heeled Boys - Live 72

I was responding to a post by a right winger that I have known for years on another site and what he said reminded me of a song...(A great song from the past and found that it too is on You tube, the meaning of which is still relevant today, and thought I would share both,)
I posted the lyrics below in a response to him...


"The Low Spark Of High Heeled Boys"

If you see something that looks like a star
And it's shooting up out of the ground
And your head is spinning from a loud guitar
And you just can't escape from the sound
Don't worry too much, it'll happen to you
We were children once, playing with toys
And the thing that you're hearing is only the sound of
The low spark of high-heeled boys

The percentage you're paying is too high priced
While you're living beyond all your means
And the man in the suit has just bought a new car
From the profit he's made on your dreams
But today you just read that the man was shot dead
By a gun that didn't make any noise
But it wasn't the bullet that laid him to rest, was
The low spark of high-heeled boys

If you had just a minute to breathe
And they granted you one final wish
Would you ask for something like another chance?
Or something sim'lar as this?
Don't worry too much It'll happen to you
As sure as your sorrows are joys
And the thing that disturbs you is only the sound of
The low spark of high-heeled boys

The percentage you're paying is too high priced
While you're living beyond all your means
And the man in the suit has just bought a new car
From the profit he's made on your dreams
But today you just read that the man was shot dead
By a gun that didn't make any noise
But it wasn't the bullet that laid him to rest, was
The low spark of high-heeled boys (heeled boys)

If I gave you everything that I owned
And asked for nothing in return
Would you do the same for me as I would for you?
Or take me for a ride
And strip me of everything, including my pride
But spirit is something that no one destroys
And the sound that I'm hearing is only the sound
The low spark of high-heeled boys (heeled boys

Sorry but I want to scold you.

So if you don't feel like being scolded then read no further...but if you don't mind it and think something cold be learned from being critical of yourself for a while.

As too the HL thing, our reaction to it is all wrong.
Who did us wrong?...HL?...no silly me it is the SCOTUS that did us wrong, and HL is just an exploiter in this...so we attack the exploiter?

If we wanted to win public opinion, and that is what this is ultimately about, we wold have a demonstration at the SC building...and a sit in where you actually get arrested...and all that goes with a serious effort to actually win.
Or better yet we could perhaps prevented it in the first place, with massive and persistent demonstrations in front of the SC building carrying signs saying, "Don't allow religion to decide about your health" or something like that, framing the issue instead of waiting for the media to frame it their way...it could have changed one mind there maybe.

The phrase that keeps coming to mind is "keep your eyes on the prize"...because the right wing power men know majic...and know the art of slight of hand...you know what that is right?...it is misdirection...where the magician uses his right hand to point off and direct your eyes from his left hand as he palms the coin.

Well that is my scold for the day...hope it was not unbearable.
