For starters, the two guys would give their best blows to the door that they were trying to open first.
Keep doing it 'til you're dead, please.
*doublepromote *quality I especially liked the bit at the end regarding not breaking the law. Socrates argued basically the same thing in the Euthyphro dilemma. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Euthyphro_dilemma Basically, a rule's (law's) quality comes from within itself. It's either of good quality or inferior based on it's own merits. Furthermore, someone saying that a rule is a good rule does guarantee the quality of the rule; even if that someone is a god. We have these laws allowing our government to do what they've done, but, regardless of constitutionality, we need the public to ask questions about whether what was done here was right for the citizens of the U.S. Bottom line for me, the public can't ask questions when everything's been rubber stamped "CLASSIFIED." Thank goodness for whistleblowers and the sacrifice they make to bring things like this to light.
Classic disruptive self righteous student. I'd love to see him substitute teach for one, ONE, day.
The life jacket finally makes sense in more than just a keen fashion kind of way.
This was so funny it made you cry? :-/
p.s. I just re-read that old comment I made a while back and it's SO true it's scary. My wife is a teacher as well, and frequently during dinner our discussion hovers around the phrase "soul-crushing" regarding the work they expect us to do and how we're compensated and treated as a result. And 8 p.m. bedtimes? Right here < Now you know why I'm not online much anymore. I'm seriously thinking of becoming a technical writer of some kind. I've browsed job openings and even the lowest paid tech writers (which i could EASILY do) make 10-15k more than me (it'll be my 6th year teaching and I'm @ 32k, I'm really robbing them eh?).
I'm sorry it's taken me so long to get back to you. Honestly, I've been extremely busy teaching. They keep adding things for us to do outside of the classroom and the pressure is ALWAYS on to get test scores up (bullshit after school, seminars, pep sessions, [academic! pep sessions w00t!]). That said, here's my take on things: in spite of teaching being a hard (HARD) job, I still feel that education is the answer to a lot of these problems. If the public were educated enough to see the causational relationships between what John Stewart is describing here with regulation and alcohol abuse being diminished, we'd live in a much better world. That said, people don't value education for a variety of reasons. I go into some of that here: http://videosift.com/blog/blankfist/Stupid-in-America#comment-1311236 It took me a long time to format that old comment (several hours if I remember correctly). Enjoy!
Thanks.... As a schoolteacher, do you have something to add to the discussion? I'd love to read it and have it included in the comment stream.
