I have been following this whole thing.

Alexander has obstructed all of the questioning, and he is a complete and utter SELLOUT. Right now he has AGAIN shut down the committee. DEVOS is INCOMPETENT.

But he has the deciding vote. He has the right to not let them ask questions.

I sent an email. I have called to get a busy signal. I have tried FB but his page is locked.
This man is a disaster.

EVERY PERSON on that committee who voted for DeVos is to be blamed. She will ruin this country with her ridiculous and inept ..........


GAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am furious.

I don't "tweet" but this is hashtagworthy.

Just got through to Sen Pat Roberts' office receptionist. (R-KS) I left an earful with the poor guy (was polite to him, though!) and asked him to read back to me what he was going to pass along.

CALL YOUR LEGISLATORS!

Dont forget the Out-sider anti-establishment darling Ron Paul voted party line.

doy. Do you have anything else to say?

The only reason she was "confirmed" is because a repellent dinosaur from Tennessee forced the committee to vote without hearing their arguments against.

I have just called and FB contacted and emailed my own Senator (for the third time in the last week) who is on the "aye" side, and let him know how aghast I am. I have also managed to squeeze a comment on Alexander's FB page ----- which is locked up. The phone line is DOWN. THIS IS FASCISM.

*fuming*

THE WOMAN IS NOT FIT.

At this point I don't give a crap who voted for what. OUR CHILDREN'S EDUCATION IS AT STAKE.

I AM AN EDUCATOR.
I AM A SOCIAL WORKER.

THIS CHOICE IS AN ABOMINATION.

And that's all I have to say. You all fight it out. I am too furious.

You've had a really bad month, huh?

How about waiting to see what she actually does and then complain?

How about I put out the stove fire before it burns my house down.

NO

She is a Bible-thumping idiot who doesn't know the first thing about administrating a school system. She is out of her league. FFS, any paraprofessional for special ed, any parent who's had a child who needs an IEP, any human being who knows the FIRST THING about childhood development and education knows more about WHAT KIDS NEED. A TEACHER knows more.


Kaine is right. Murray, Bennet, Hassan, Franken, Warren.

And this TOOL Alexander is a neanderthal with a club. This is insane.
I WILL NOT GIVE HER A CHANCE.

She, just like Trump, is TOTALLY OUT OF HER LEAGUE.

Disgraceful.
I am ashamed, embarrassed, and furious at this entire debacle of oligarch take-over.

WTH IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE?????????????

We've already seen what she wants to do. Her policies are in place in Michigan. They made things worse. Especially for the inner city. Why do you think they will suddenly work when applied to the rest of the country?

Remember, this is the same woman that has never been involved in public education in anyway and thinks teachers are paid too much. That right there should be indicative of her qualifications.

Please. More hyperbole.

It's taken us a couple of generations to hose education in this country. That stove fire started long ago.

Time for a different approach.

I couldn't care less what Ron Paul or Rand Paul say -- except that Rand Paul just now voted "aye" for a Bible-thumping Billionaire to take over our schools.

I will be contacting EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THOSE SENATORS.

Yes.

I bet she does well.

The fumbling failures from the past need to be analyzed and corrected.
