Things Going Round & Round: Heard it all before ...

Excerpted from this post at Things Going Round & Round

... This anti-bullying legislation isn’t about the kid with developmental disabilities. And it’s not about the smart girl with no fear of being right. And it’s certainly not about the morbidly obese kid. (We have other fancy social engineering agenda items in the wings for that kid, somewhat along the lines of POW camp food monitoring at school & home.) No, this is a clever hijacking of an emotional policy issue that is couched in female friendly sound bites that cover up the long-term legal agenda. ... On the same note, Krusty’s pi**ed off tirade slicing the minutia associated with the Republicans position on the anti-bullying legislation is lost on me. It never works to say things like: This proposed legislation is good but it is also bad for this and this and this reason therefore, even though I believe in the idea, we’re not going to do anything about it.
