If the supreme court upheld the rights of the Westboro Baptist church to protest a la the 1st amendment, why does this obviously closeted man think they're going to jail him for speaking out against himself? I can't fathom that he's that super-special.
Mar 26, 2011 Diane commented on SL Letter of the Day: OMG PORN THINK OF THE CHILDREN OMG!.
This reminds me of the time I found the illustrated Kama Sutra taped to the back of the boys' dressing room door. Good times. Kids do this stuff all the time -- they like to shock you. However, if it wasn't a kid, and it was the teacher (which I really doubt) then that would be just icky. Maybe the teacher was keeping the copies for proof of the kid's misbehavior? I keep copies of everything...even the really awful stuff. I don't trust that the admin. will keep careful enough records.
Mar 12, 2011 Diane commented on RE: Wisconsin.
We (I am a teacher in Wisconsin and because of Mr. Walker's self-made budget crisis, have been laid off after nearly 20 years of teaching) are a bunch of teachers, nurses, and state workers. We are the kind of people who say "Thank you" as a protest chant. We thank the law enforcement for being there. We invite children and animals to protest with us. This is the way we work -- it's the peaceful way we have served our state for years. Goldy, I know what you mean, but we're way too nice for violence; this is why we are the people you want teaching your kids. If you want to help, donate to the Democratic party of WI. They are coordinating recall efforts. Also, you can boycott Johnsonville meats, Sargento, Land's End, Kimberly Clark (Koch Industries)paper products as they were all large donors to Mr. Walker's campaign.

It was my Madison, Wisconsin teachers that made me want to be an English teacher. Thanks, Charles. I love you.

@1 -- The Illinois bastards tried to demean us years ago with the cheesy thing. We've owned it for years. It's not insulting anymore. Cheese away!

Hey Goldy, thanks for keeping up with our struggle. As a teacher in Wisconsin and a marcher on Saturday, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Everyone needs to understand that this isn't about us Cheeseheads -- it's about the future of organized labor in this country. Don't let it happen in your state. Moderates -- wake up! You're being sold a bill of goods by the Tea Party/Koch brothers!…
Feb 19, 2011 Diane commented on "Hundreds" of Teabaggers to Rally in Wisconsin, FOX News to Fawn Breathlessly.
I was there in Madison, WI on Saturday. Three thoughts:
1. The public workers outnumbered the Tea-baggers 20 -1. There were 60,000 people there and no arrests.
2. I noticed that on Friday night, when entering the WI capitol building, the doors were sign free. Saturday, with the tea-bagger infiltration there were signs reminding people that firearms were not allowed on the premises.
3. Tea-baggers have less clever signs than public workers. And more mis-spellings.

That kid should run for state office. I'd vote for him.
