Remember the Simpsons, 1994, "Deep Space Homer"? A radio announcer thinks the Earth is going to be taken over by giant space ants and says: “One thing is for certain: there is no stopping them; the ants will soon be here. And I for one welcome our new insect overlords. I’d like to remind them that as a trusted TV personality, I can be helpful in rounding up others to toil in their underground sugar caves.”
United Opt Out did not welcome the common core overlords but launched a counterattack. And it is working.
