Millionaires Receive Tax Break While More Children Enter Poverty.

This was all I had to read from the "TEACHERS.NET" website. These are the people
educating indoctrinating the future of this country.
There is a car in my lot with several bumper stickers like "No War in Iraq", "No blood for oil" etc... Right next to the big, main bumper sticker which reads, "FREE TIBET!". Always makes me wonder...
BTW, we can opt out of being in our Union but not paying the fee. I stay in so I can vote and know what is going on. I was actually part of the Executive Union Leadership group for a year so I could see what they really do.
Most actions were really benign (SP?) but there was one meeting where they were going to address political postcards during the meeting and the President had to remind them that they couldn't do political business during the "non-political" meeting. It was kind of funny to see the reaction of people to me when they discovered I was a Conservative. They TRULY cannot believe that someone they already know and repect (and like) could be an evil Republican. I work with one man who grew up in the hick part of Nebraska. He siad he had never met a Conservative who wasn't a backwards goofball. We actually have some really great conversations.
Many of the Dems I work with are great people who make up their own minds about issues and candidates. It is the lemmings who drive me crazy! They vote for exactly who and what the Union tells them. Including I-200 which helped to stop Affirmative Action Programs and another which reduced car tabs! The Union has an opinion on everything and somehow they always figure out a way to connect to Education $$$ so they can advise the members how to vote!
BTW I LOVE MY JOB and it saves all of us money if I do it right!
It is always my goal to teach my special ed kiddos everything that they can do for themselves so we don't have to pay for someone to do it for them for the next 50 years!
