I rebut only about 1 in 10 of the propaganda campaigns that they send to me because I don't have the time or interest to do so. To some people I am a "Republican" if I merely work to put the truth out for people to ponder. I obtain more value in observing what they say without me altering the conversation. (Kinda just like I wonder "What do White people talk about when a Black guy is not in the room? :-) )
In the case of the education cuts in Georgia - anyone who has read the newspaper recently or watched the news should realize that there are massive education funding cuts planned at the state and school system/county level, regardless of which party is in charge.
None of this matters to some people. For them such a propaganda piece advances their notion that their party is good and the other is evil. They plan to take food from the mouth of babes.
The person who sent me this lives in Dekalb County Georgia. They are facing a $115M shortfall and are planning massive funding cuts. In nearby Clayton County they have a $119M budget shortfall. These are huge budget cuts. I would not wish job losses on anyone. Still for some people this pain is abstract as they are still game for a bit of political gamesmanship and jockeying .
I previously noted the run on property assessment requests from homeowners seeking to reduce their tax bill and how it would impact that county's ability to fund their schools.. We see that the demand for reductions has stripped the school system of funding and has triggered the layoffs detailed in the video below.
Some people are more appeased when they can identify the conspiracy from the external boogie man who caused the funding to be cut.
The question is - When are some of you going to start pushing back on the propaganda?
