For the news and views you might have missed
On November 28th, 2011 Garfield High School history teacher Jesse Hagopian was arrested while attempting a citizen’s arrest of the Washington State Legislature for their failure to fully fund education in this state. The State Constitution declares that adequately funding education is the “paramount duty” of the Legislature and the Washington State Supreme Court ruled in January, 2012 that the Legislature was severely neglecting this duty.
Join Social Equality Educators for food, drinks, music, conversation and politics, to help raise money for Jesse’s court fine as well as to support SEE candidates for union leadership positions on the Seattle Education Association Board.

By John Nichols and Robert McChesney
From the Preface:
Carter declared-as the planet's most famous election observer- that '“We have one of the worst election processes in the world right here in the United States of America, and it’s almost entirely because of the excessive influx of money."
