Reading and Writing and Politics…
From The Los Angeles Times:
A school-age child at a Donald Trump rally on Tuesday stood up and yelled “Take the bitch down” after the candidate mentioned Hillary Clinton…
The child, who looked no more than 10, was sitting next to his mother in the media section. The mother identified herself in a brief interview with a small group of reporters as Pam Kohler of Mount Vernon, Va., but she would not name her son or say how old he is … Asked where he learned to speak that way, she answered, “Democratic schools.”

Standard Republican technique: blow up the railroad tracks, then blame the Democratic engineer when there's a train wreck.
Republicans complain about the economy, but ignore the fact that tight-fisted Republicans refused to appropriate the money for "shovel ready" projects that would have sped up employment. They enforce tax policies that put the tax burden on middle-class and poor Americans while giving the rich tax breaks. Then they ask, "Are you better off than you were eight years ago?"
So why not blame "Democratic schools" for a foulmouthed brat's utterances? This brings to mind the old joke about the kid who, during a milk and cookies break in school, used a string of obscenities to declare that he wasn't going to eat any cookies." The teacher called in the kid's mother and explained what was going on.
The mother was furious with her son. "Fuck him, don't give him any cookies!" said the mother.
There's no remedy against stupidity.
