Ok, let's give Stuart95 the benefit of the doubt, I think he was referring to the Texas Rangers baseball team. Nice article Mr. Ransom. I personally was a member of a Teacher's Union for a short time, not because I felt they represented my beliefs politically or even my best interests career wise, but because of the penchant unwarranted lawsuits against teaching professionals. Even a whisper of an allegation of could damage/destroy a good professional teacher. Unfortunately this same protection has been misapplied to protect persons who are not professional, and some downright predatory. I now teach in a private setting and am non union.

I got a lot of comments from the semi-official-always-hilarious Facebook site for the teachers' union regarding my story Teachers’ Union Expelled from School District.

Welcome, to a whole new batch of comrades!
