At lunch today one of our leftie teachers acted mortified--mortified!--to learn that our California State Teachers Retirement System has invested money in Bain Capital, Mitt Romney's old company. What, does she want CalSTRS to divest for political reasons, whether or not the investment is any good for us?
Tomorrow the Thunderbirds will be performing at the California Capital Airshow. Yesterday and today they practiced overhead, making giving quizzes more difficult than it should be (if you don't know it, F-16's are loud). Right after school they did a loop overhead, and this same teacher was outside marveling and enjoying the show. Just to have some fun, I put my hands on my hips and said with as much faux indignation as I could muster, "How can they be up there wasting all that money when there are people here on the ground going hungry?!" Her response? "But they look so cool!"
I just can't figure lefties out :-)
