Does anyone doubt that taking back the school boards is now imperative?

It is beyond imperative. We need to change our focus. Fight locally. Take back school boards, take back city councils, take back HOAs. We need to go back to a bottom-up approach. Our own Community Organizing.

If the girl refused to get her friend, and her friend got behind the wheel and killed someone, or killed herself what then?  We have been focusing on parents whose children get in trouble, but these so-called responsible adults are punishing kids for doing good deeds, as well as kids pointing fingers at someone. How smart is that?

Yep. And it is going to take years. Time for the long haul plans.
