Big Business and APS
Can you believe it? The Chamber of Commerce in DC pours tens of millions of dollars into right wing candidates who will lower taxes on Corporate America in every way. Soon America's CEOs could soon be in charge of our schools. Case in point is the Albuquerque School Board approving leases for the corporate media giant Clear Channel to put electronic billboards on school grounds in return for some money to help run the schools. It is ingenious. It used to be they would pay taxes to support the schools but now they take that same money saved from low taxes and make a deal with the schools in Albuquerque to turn their campuses into advertising platforms. Damn! Life is too short.
