Thwarting Progress Again

SB 955 would improve the quality of education in CA schools, by allowing schools to retain teachers based on quality, instead of seniority.

Currently, schools must let newer teachers go first, even if they provide higher quality instruction, and produce more student success, than older teachers.

Naturally, the teachers unions will spend a whole lot of money to fight this bill.

My $1.298 - More proof that teachers unions don't give a crap about our children. It reaffirms for me why I refuse to be a union member and annually demand a refund of any dues (which they force me to pay) that would be used for political purposes. If you are a teacher, I strongly urge you to do the same and become an "agency fee payer".

Get Out of Our House!

Tired of career politicians? I heard this guy from Get Out of Our House! on Dennis Miller's radio program today.

The mission of his site is:
GOOOH stands for 'Get Out of Our House' and is pronounced like the word 'go'. It is a NON-PARTISAN plan to evict the 435 career politicians in the U.S. House of Representatives and replace them with everyday Americans just like you.

My $1.298 - Sign me up! Yes, I know it is an impossible feat, but I like the concept anyway.

This Makes Me Want To Curse

The CA assembly has passed a resolution to make the first week in March "Cuss Free Week".

Really now? Our legislature spent time and resources on this?

My $1.298 - What a waste of time and money. No wonder citizens are frustrated with the CA legislature.
