The separation between church and state could be at stake, along with the future of public education. The US Supreme Court may invalidate part of Montana's constitution that bars state aid to religious schools--leading to theocracy in place of democracy.
"Justice Stephen Breyer wondered where the plaintiffs' equal-treatment argument would end. He noted major school systems spend billions in taxpayer money to fund the public schools. 'If I decide for you,' he asked, would these school systems 'have to give proportionate amounts to parochial schools?'
"Deputy Solicitor General Jeffrey Wall, representing the Trump administration, basically answered 'yes.'"
Trump makes it clear that he sees his trial as another chance to influence his re-election. He's more concerned about his TV time slot than about showing any refutation of the facts presented by Democrats. He doesn't mind that he's clearly proven to be guilty--he has intimidated GOP Senators into voting for him, no matter what.
It has been a year since 9,000 educators swarmed the Statehouse. The power of their organizing continues to be felt this legislative term with continued bipartisan momentum for education reform.
We are heading to the Statehouse this Tuesday to show solidarity with educators. We are also asking to end gerrymandering, and to make hate crimes illegal. (Did you know South Carolina is one of only four states with no hate crimes laws?)
It's not a rally. We're starting a conversation by meeting with our elected representatives. The event is co-sponsored by the Charleston and Greenville County Democratic Parties. Join us for our first ever...
January 28th, 10am-1pm
Meet at Blatt Building, Room 321
