Given that the organizations in question WANT Congress to have those records in order to prove the misdeeds of the IRS, it seems to me that they ought to waive privilege in writing and request that the IRS turn those documents over. If the IRS still won't do it, subpoena every employee in the agency in their personal capacity (which means no government-paid lawyers) until the documents are produced.
You would be surprised how many of us who teach would gladly take up arms if permitted -- and how many already have concealed carry permits. Besides, this would lead to the revitalization of the Troops-to-Teachers program as veterans who do not fear guns take their place in America's classrooms.
I don't know that I agree entirely with you, Mike. I'm all for there being some schools for the children of anti-gunnites and anti-gunnite educators. Most parents, being rational, would choose to let their kids go to the regular schools, where teachers are armed. The anti-gunnites, however, would have the option of sending their children to the district magnet school. I can see the sports teams and their mascot now -- the Cowering Sitting Ducks of Sarah Brady High School, for example.
Professor Adams is 90% serious in my estimation.
1) What a pity you are a racist. 2) Are there other crimes for which you would inflict the death penalty upon the children of the perpetrator -- and is that sentiment confined only to the children of perpetrators of a certain race? 3) So you would be fine if the perpetrator was 150 pounds, or if the 250 pound perpetrator was of a different race/ethnicity?
As a teacher, I go out of my way to keep my politics out of the classroom. Unfortunately, unions try to force politics into the classroom. That's one reason I'm glad to be down here in Texas, where right-to-work guarantees that I'm not required to join a union against my will.
But even then, once they became citizens they were equal to all others and qualified for whatever benefits any other citizen was qualified for. Do we really want two-tiered citizenship in America?
Consider this additional example. A few years back, a couple of my students decided to pull a prank by egging my car on a boring Saturday night. The result was $2000 in paint damage to my car -- felony criminal mischief in the state of Texas had I pressed charges. Is this really the sort of offense that merits the loss of rights you propose?
