In case you missed the first episode, the title alludes to how the power brokers are rolling out faux outrages to distract from detailed pieces of legislation which will have grave consequences if allowed to go through unchallenged…..

Last year, the prime tactic was using the “sucker punch.”  That is where without warning someone walks up behind you and slams their hard fist into your head…. Kilroy thoughtfully provides a demonstration…..

Hence SB 51 was passed before practically anyone had time to read it…   HB 165 was similarly passed, (this time everyone stayed up all night to read it, and some opposition was offered)  but the ducks were in a row and so it too passed.   Since the passage of both bills, there has been only criticism (no benefit derived) of the effort…. Both bills hurt children, who unfortunately, due to the speed of passage, were never heard from before it was signed by the governor…..

This year, they can’t do it.  You can only surprise a person once like that, (unless they are retarded) and Delawareans have not yet reached that point…. Therefore they have too distract your attention away from what they are trying to do…

Notice how this bill ….. was floated without being submitted…. yes that is done… but did you realize that this bill isn’t even written yet?  With all the hoopla, it probably won’t…

This is just a statement like…. “Well your mother wears Combat boots…” intended to buy time…. Pay it the attention it deserves which is little….Very little… No unwritten bill has ever been passed by a legislature, with the exception of Common Core…

(There is a lot in that statement…. Read it again carefully…)

But as with SB 51 and HB 165, there are some very bad pieces of legislation regarding the Smarter Balanced Assessment that should be seriously addressed before it gets rammed through both houses with favors attached….

Primarily being that there are very few states out of the 46 who signed on to Common Core, who haven’t had their legislators demand a slower approach, and not inflict these tests upon their children….  Currently only 9 states are going forward with the PARCC and only 17 are still on track to use the Smarter Balanced Assessment…..

It is very bad, but a whole lot of investors have money tied up… It is very much in their interest that you get distracted on a referendum that only determines in what way they steal your money… Not whether the can or can’t get the opportunity to steal it at all…

This distraction is to take your mind off of this test….  Don’t  or it will sucker punch you hard while you are looking the other way…..

(h/t Steve Newton somewhere back in Feb. or Jan.)…
