Prove it! I've been a Biology teacher for over 50 years and have seen many evolutionary theories changed, abandoned, resurrected often by a single new fossil find. It is a theory that helps us organize a very unequal fossil record with few remains of soft tissue. As my invertebrate geology prof in 1965 said, "To be successful in this class you have to have a good imagination to fill in all the missing structures in the fossils we study."

tibby2, Great ideas to mull. Once asked my grandpa how many people worked in a tall office building. He said, "Oh about 50% if its a good company."

My Cuban refugee friends have painted an opposite story to your account and most of them preferred Batista. And they feared Che most of all. Castro boasted openly he was a communist and how much he admired Lenin and Stalin. Now we have Islamic sycophants embedded in Obama's regime who are influencing if not out right directing our foreign policy.
Thank you for a most astute comment. I will use it in my ethics class tomorrow. Yes, I teach in a Charter H.S. where ethics and personal responsibility are part of every class.
Not fired, sent to a conservative Christian camp for re-education. Just as five of us teachers were required to take months of sensitivity and cultural training after school for flunking black students who never showed up to class.
Don't hold your breath waiting for her response.

Is ObamaCare Working?

Because they would lose their elite, cheap health insurance. I distrust even the most conservative law maker when it come to health care and retirement benefits. Every one becomes greedy when they discover the perks they get and will get when they leave office. And they work less than 180 days a year to get them. Notice I didn't say earn them. And don't get me started on all the promises they made us to stay in the military for 20 years. They were just political promises.
Great comment. Taught 18 years in a inner city HS. All my tests were biased, Asians always got the best grades. Most of my black students attended class less than 50% of the time and got everything for free.
Freedom for blacks was still creeping along in the South in 1959 when I was in the service in Montgomery. My black Flight Leader had to step into the gutter to avoid whites, couldn't eat in the same malt shop with me and had to stand in the back of the bus when we took public transportation. Only on Base was he treated with respect and equal rights. That was a terrible, real, unjust alternate universe, Mr. Jeff.
when my students ask me what I think about their orientation I just say, "My private views remain private. Do you have a question about The class?'
