Union Boycotts LA Times Over Teacher Evaluation Disclosure

JohnnyGTO If the teachers and Unions want hire pay (629 comments)

They need to agree to eliminating tenure and quit fighting the firing of incompetent teachers (LAUSD officials spent $3.5 million in the last 10 years "trying to fire just seven of the district's 33,000 teachers for poor classroom performance). I spent 4 years in a California high school and other then the best math and science teacher ever the entire experience was a waste of time. We had a drunk, a women who chewed, a commie who promoted drug use, a wannabe jock coach who could not teach his way out of a paper bag, an English teacher who was extra friendly to the jocks (ya I was jealous), a spanish teach with no classroom skills at all and on and on. They struck twice while I was attending and we really didn't notice the difference between them and the subs!

We home school and yes I'm posting Anonymously, I've been told by several "teachers" that home schooling should be a criminal act!!

JohnnyGTO Re:Why take them out? (513 comments)

Come live here for a while, have your property stolen your wife assaulted in SCOTTSDALE of all places. They get a bus ride home I get a bill for $2500. Ya we need to stop all illegal activity at our boards, our highways our cities and suburbs. Its just to bad for the hard working law abiding workers that the majority of crime is associated with illegal aliens. Bring back the Migrant and Seasonal Farmworkers Program and modify it to allow for other forms of work. They should have to follow the same rules and be monitored in the same way by US Immigration as I am!!

Arizona Backs Off Its Speed Camera Program

JohnnyGTO Re:Huh? (513 comments)

Follow the money not the murder. There taking them out because too many people ignore the mailed ticket at it's too expensive to hand server everyone. Remember the accused has legal rights to be properly server, you can't just charge, try and convict someone. It is a slippery slope we don't want to go down. Besides I have seen more accidents and near accidents from idiots looking up too late and slamming on their brakes to count.

JohnnyGTO writes "Nice to see some people understand that freedom of speech means both sides of an opinion!

British Lord Stings Senators Rockefeller and Snowe: Uphold Free Speech or Resign Lord Monckton, Viscount of Brenchley, has sent an open letter to Senators Rockefeller (D-WV) and Snowe (R-Maine) in response to their recent open letter telling the CEO of ExxonMobil to cease funding climate-skeptic scientists.

Lord Monckton, former policy adviser to Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, writes: "You defy every tenet of democracy when you invite ExxonMobil to deny itself the right to provide information to senior elected and appointed government officials who disagree with your opinion.""
