We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Oh, the NEA's interests are too high a price to pay for students' learning. Yeah, those are the people I want teaching our kids! What a bunch of scum bags. I couldn't hate them more if I tried (there, I've said it. I guess that makes me a hater.)
Yup ......its ALL about the power trip. What's even more telling the the applause he gets. These people have no clue that we have all entered a new era. They're about to be thrown on the trash heap of history.
