Another perfectly good reason to vote against school bonds. Why do you think it's productive to teach young minds that the U.S. is the bad guy, and the worlds dictators and communists get a free pass on human rights.

He's no fan of notorious dictator Augustin Pinochet, I bet you, seeing as how Pinochet tortured him.
I read it again. Nothing in here indicates that the US is the "bad guy" for anything, or that anybody gets any "free pass." I hate soft-headed politics as much as the next guy, but you're reading stuff into it that isn't there.
Weirdest of all is your assertion that this is a reason to vote against school bonds! School bonds are property taxes with the money earmarked for building projects. They have nothing whatsoever to do with clubs or politics. Maybe there's a reason to vote against them, but this isn't it. (This is the "logical thinking" part I referred to.)

V-Free's comment reflects the same extreme right wing Agenda that the Pinochet regime reflected. The extreme right wing wants to cut funding for education. They feel threatened by the idea that students hear the truth about repression under right wing dictatorships and the US role in establishing the Pinochet dictatorship.
