Welcome to the forum. It's good to have a teacher on board, perhaps it will help educate others as to what socialism is and isn't ......... and perhaps a history lesson or two

 

Good luck and happy posting !!!

Welcome to the forum. You have my deepest respect as a teacher....it’s the most important profession of all, in my opinion.

Good morning to all- 

I'm an AARP memeber and a retired public school teacher.  I am presently an outdoor writer for several publications.

I spent my adult life trying to help kids learn skills which might make a difference in their lives. Sometimes, it worked. I have kids from truly desperate home situations and backgrounds who became positive and contributing meembers of society. Taxpayers, even.

 

It hurts me to daily see the low level our national politics have sunk to, and I find it very difficult to follow my childhood instructions- "If you can't say anything good about someone, don't say anything at all." I make a point in my personal life to follow this advice.

 

But with the vileness of the people in positions of power in D.C. and even state government, I can't remain silent. The present occupant of the White House and his republican supporters MUST be met with resistance, and their efforts to make horrible and harmful laws the rule of our land must be stopped. I do not wish to offend anyone, but the way I see it, the present republican poiticians on all levels are some of the most vile, destructive, harmful, and donwright mean people who have ever come to power.

 

Those of us who see the world through different eyes than these vile politicans must keep up a steady and non-stop verbal oppostion to their efforts.

 

Vote the garbage out in 2020- it can be done.

 

good day to all- Ed
