Being Liberal and a Progressive in a RED STATE is not an easy thing these days. I started this blog to vent my frustrations on our lives being taken over by right wing conservatives with their propaganda machines. I have also learned an important lesson in the last year, it is that reading is the only way to get real information, you cannot depend on the news you see on TV.

24 Years of Dealing with Public School Teachers

I am so sick of Public School and teachers after 24 years of dealing with such. Tonight my last child, senior in High School told me an assistant principal had read his online blog and told him to either clean it up or not get a "gold card" a stupid incentive they started this year that supposedly gleans the good kids from the bad kids. The bad kids: Ones who forget or lose their ID cards, are late to school and various other infractions that are subject to not being able to get a hall pass go to the bathroom or get to go to lunch. What an idiotic plan. What do you teachers want, the kids to wet their pants? Oh by the way weren't you the ones sending out the notes that kids need nutrition to do well on tests and other educational stuff, (Dear Parents, make sure your child eats a good meal today as we will be testing and good nutrition makes for a better testing atmosphere.) Ok you idiots I always feed my child, but it appears that you will take away his lunch if he forgets his ID. Kind of of stupid if you ask me.

What the hell are you doing reading his blog and making judgment calls about taking his lunch and his bathroom privileges away, for writing his private thoughts. A blog may be out there for everyone to see, but should have no bearing on anything he is judged on at school

It seems that what I can discern from what he tells me you are a bunch of hypocritical republicans that want to change his very nature and views. I can tell you right now your effort is fruitless. You would think you would be happy that he has never been in trouble in High School and never had a detention. What else do you want? Leave the shaping of his views to me and his father, teach him facts not opinions and the collision of our two worlds will be a lot less ominous.

That is just over the line in my opinion. Believe it or not we have friends with kids in a southwest Missouri school and one kid got so much harrasment from the teacher/principal (he's a racist and the kids are african-american) that the mom just started monitoring the class herself. It's crazy. We avoid most of the craziness since we homeschool but it is still maddening.

Great blog - I can totally relate to the feelings of being a liberal in Missouri - my wife, Sage, and I lived in the Missouri Ozarks (near Springfield) for about four years before finally pulling up stakes and moving to Canada. And yes, the move to Canada was as worth it as liberals think. Plus while we can still vote Roy Blunt out by absentee ballot, none of our tax dollars support the US government anymore. Best of both worlds if you ask me!
