Ignorance and the General (Uneducated) Public

School has kept me pretty busy this past couple of weeks. As I sit on my comfortable couch, in my nice (paid off) home in Texas; I just realized that I only have 1/2 a day of teaching this year. We are on an "early out" schedule and as soon as the student are out the door, I will be right behind them.

Some teachers will blow off the 1/2 of classes and allow the students to have the ever popular "free day." I learned many years ago, school should be a preparation for life, and in life, there is no such thing as a "free day." My students will have an assignment and if they choose not to do it, or they choose not to show up for class; it was affect their grade.

Too many educators and parents take the easy way out when it comes to the youth of today. I refuse to do that. It is going to be "my way or the highway" when I have the responsibility that has been trusted to be as an educator.

The ignorance of some people in the world sometimes amaze me. How uneducated and "low class" they are when they feel that they are "entitled" to an opinion on anything and everything, no matter how little education, knowledge, or just plain common sense they have.

Previously, I posted to this forum a short piece on Clint Eastwood and his latest movie, "Invictus." I made some general and specific statements about the movie.

When I read the comments that were posted on that particular piece, the following was posted a comment from "Anonymous."

"You're truly an imbecile. Stop listening to the McCarthyist right wing corporate media. Obama is no socialist and you obviously have no idea what socialism is. Jack ass."

I think this guy is the "Pot calling the Kettle BLACK."

What a MOOK!!!!! One just knows this guy is one of the idiots who is waiting for his free ride, a welfare check, or any one of the numerous things that PBo promised them for their votes and has yet to make good on.
