    Boy I love this thread. It proves that closed-minded name calling is the best way to persuade someone they are wrong and you are right. And not only that , but it proves enlightened discourse that might lead to a common middle ground compromise is totally unnecessary to achieve anything in this country today. Ah, how blind the visionaries of the past have been to try to keep an open mind, try to avoid petty name calling, and most of all for their civil discussion of the issues at hand in order to reach an agreement that everybody can live with. If only they could see the errors in their ways.

    There was nothing non-violent about the Civil Rights movement. :?

    Oh blob, you silly brainwashed idiot kid.

    Let me know how The Daily show is tonight before you brush your teeth for bed!

    Point one (and your links don't work, btw, little drudger): I do disparaged people that smoke weed (it's weed, call it cannabis if you want, using big words on purpose makes you look like an idiot), but I also realize that trying to stop people from smoking it is a waste of time and money, especially when it comes to govt. money. It is idiotic, but not as idiotic as wasting money trying to stop people from using it.

    Point two: Liyba was something we had no business getting involved in. Should france or spain come over and get involved in the Mexican Drug war? Of course not. Protesting Iraq is fucking stupid because A. No one gives a shit about .2% of the population that bothers protesting and B. politicians really don't give a shit. Boohoo, you're not special.

    Point Three: My mother has non-threatening lupus. She buys her own insurance, and gets along fine. Since I really don't have the time to drudge up threads that you did and then failed to link properly, not sure what was said; needless to say, I'll never support govt intervention in anything, including your stupid obamacare which is falling apart.

    On the subject of civil rights, well, I could take the time to get into that but I won't.


    And frankly I don't really care if people don't like me on this forums; you're stupid, childish leftists threads would die and go away if I didn't post in them, because I'm one of three people that doesn't suffer from some sort of group-think mentality. So go on little zombie leftist, go to NYC and scream about how socialism is better than capitalism, go demand something you have not earned, go on!

    BY the way, you bitch about incomes being different in the US, well:

    http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2011-10-1 ... alley.html

    Maybe it's the government lackeys, eh? Less government, less rich, ho!

    I have no problem with it in theory. I was a part of the teachers union when I was employed with the BOE, and it was pretty good for the most part because they did pay for seminars and training days to increase skills and things of that nature. Teach for America I know about but...I need to research the group more to comment on them honestly.

    That said, the unions are messed up right now because the crackdown on teachers has become extremely one-sided. A lot of teachers do suck, but the good ones are being swept under the rug because of standardized testing and lack of power against students.

    It's...terrible.

    Wait, lack of power against students?

    You mean like frivolous lawsuits, or just the kids being brutes?

    Both, actually.

    For example, if I were punched, stabbed, or even threatened with a weapon by a student in New York, I can't retaliate in any way to defend myself or else have a high chance of losing my job because were not allowed to lay a hand on students under any circumstances.

    And of course, we get lawsuits all the time from parents blaming the teachers for their kids failing...not showing up to class, being left back etc. Its all stupid and sometimes they are thrown out, sometimes they are not.

    It honestly sucks to be a teacher right now in the U.S.

    Crazy. I gave up on going to school for teaching; going back for accounting or something similar. So many obnoxious reasons why teaching and education sucks in this country; our culture is broken, parents don't parent, good teachers don't get to teach, bad teachers get tenure, and we throw money into it like a black hole.

    Are you fixated on staying in New York? I find looking at any state .gov/jobs section can net you a good list of available jobs in teaching.

    Unfortanatly I have little money to travel, let alone move somewhere right now. I was saving up for that but it's now mostly been used to keep me afloat while I look for a job.

    The minute I get enough for a deposit I am out of NY though. I love my city, but the job market here is terrible.

    I'm honestly not surprised Links. When I was in Middle School, a teacher was forced to quit because a student accused him of having sex with her. Her word was accepted as being the honest to God truth with no verification, and he was forced to prove that he wasn't where she claimed he was at the time, which he was able to do. Basically, he did nothing wrong.

    As it turned out, the girl's boyfriend at the time had hated the teacher because he was a dumbass and got a bad grade, and convinced her to make the crazy accusation. Of course, the teacher retired because it was too awkward for him to return to school (and if he went anywhere else, the incident was still on his record even though he was cleared and obviously innocent), and both students got off without so much as a slap on the wrist.

    Pretty shitty to be a teacher below higher education if you ask me.

    I can relate worse.

    I know a phys ed teacher who was holding back a kid because he was trying to pick a fight. Well the kid made a claim that he was molesting him inappropriately, and the family of course backed it up, and was let go without even defending himself.

    Sad part is, that kid later nearly beat a student to death a month later and is now sitting in Juvenal hall. So if that kid can get away with the accusation, then there is little hope for teachers worldwide...

    this thread is dildos

    seriously, I love watching uninformed morons argue with each other, it's like pitting to children with down syndrome to duel to the death, the end result is just a lot of flailing and barely sensible ramblings and noise
