FND: Play Your Part

As we approach the final days before the elections what have you been doing to get yourself educated about the issues & what the candidates actually stand for?

A post from earlier this year I’m sharing here

Cross posted item from another Tillett4CT project

Sonnie Johnson talks some actual history that we in the Black Community need to rethink…
This is an older video of hers & she’s located in another state but as you watch…
Look around you & see if what she is saying can be applied right here to Hartford…
All Politics are Local…
Who have we voted into office?
Town Council, State Level & Federal;
Are they “Working For US” which as elected officials they are Our Employees or just to line their own pockets with an Attitude that they are better than us?
Are we thriving or are we “Just Over Broke”,

Are we Prospering or are we Pinching Pennies?

Ask yourself WHY is that?

What conditions are our schools? Have our children been the priority or is our tax money being syphoned off into schemes & stadium pipedreams?

What is going on in our public schools? With all of the money which has been poured into one “experimental program” after another has the School to Prison Pipeline been shut down or is it still flowing strong?

You Have a Choice this November

the old Status Quo with more of the same results or

a Fresh New Start with eyes that look from the perspective of what it is like to actually have to LIVE under these laws & increasing taxes…

Alveda King on Common Core

Cross posted item from another Tillett4CT project

Dr Alveda King talks about Common Core in this video

She does not feel that this is a good educational option for our children, especially children of color who are already in disadvantaged urban schools

Our children deserve Quality Education.
Our parents deserve to have the option to send their children to Quality Schools rather than being forced to stay in the union corporations being run by the government.
Our parents DESERVE to be able to CHOOSE the school their child attends.

The tax payer money that is being shelled out should be going to the Quality Schools that parents want their children attending not only to the union corporations being run by the government. The Unions in the Government Schools care only about money instead of teaching our children the skills they need to learn to become productive self reliant individuals that can run businesses of their own creations.
