Watermelon: (Ever)Green on the Outside, Red on the Inside

Couple of interesting quotes from the Opinion page of today's Summer Watermelon, "Pullman's paper of record:"
“The oppressed are allowed once every few years to decide which particular representatives of the oppressing class are to represent and repress them.”

– Karl Marx

Depressed about the elections? So is Karl.
The American people themselves are “the greatest obstacle to progressive change” in America.
Still not too late to stage a takeover, conservative Cougars.

Here's a couple to go with that one:

“It is enough that the people know there was an election. The people who cast the votes decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide everything.

"Education is a weapon whose effects depend on who holds it in his hands and at whom it is aimed."
