Just as fun is this site, which advertises and has a trailer for a new pro-Wal*Mart movie. How does this have anything to do with education? My state and national unions have been urging their members for months not to shop at Wal*Mart because it isn't unionized, doesn't pay fair wages, etc.
Hey, unions of which I soon won't be a member? Focus on my freakin' wages--that's what I've paid you to do for 9 years--and let the Wal*Mart workers deal with theirs. Quit being a social services organization trying to save the world on my dime.
Update: For a political take on movies and Hollywood in general, articles that have no link to education issues at all, try this Ann Coulter piece or this one from city-journal.org. My favorite comment from the latter:
“The politics is definitely having an impact,” observes Govindini Murty, an actress and editor of Libertas, an influential conservative film blog. “Do car companies insult Republicans in their ads?”
Just recently came across your blog and I like it. I am also a teacher (taught jr. high up until last year...now in grad school). I don't consider myself a conservative but tend to agree with many conservative views on education mostly because I find most liberal educators to be so far out of touch with reality.
Question: why is it that almost all conservatives (even intelligent ones) like Ann Coulter?? I can't figure it out.
Ann Coulter? Attractive?
Darren, you need to get out more!
I've only seen her on the cover of her book, and she looked pretty good there--assuming she's the one I'm thinking of.
And you know what's interesting? My mother has a cousin named Leeroy. And her maiden name is Jenkins. Maybe we're related, Leeroy. :-)
I am shocked you haven't googled the name by now.
Should I? Is there something you're not telling me?
