22. Thanks but I should add that you are right about

the "stupid little nothing position" that really is nothing of the sort! I didn't intend to refer to the proverbial school board position as an insignificant job. You're spot on that it's incredibly important. It's about our kids' education and that's where deliberate, purposeful dumbing-down begins. Where the decisions are made that kids don't need Civics class anymore, for example. And that textbooks can be messed with so only certain versions of history are allowed to be taught.

And that's where devious little Ralph Reed decided the seeds of governmental takeovers can and should be planted. Because they're so low-profile and not exactly "sexy" or perceived as potentially powerful and usually easy (or easier) to win. Heck, all too often there may actually even be no opponent. You can start building your own little political power base almost literally under the radar.

Sneaky little shit, that Ralph Reed. Damn effective too, unfortunately. We need more of that kind of sneaky little shit working for OUR side!
