A teacher no less. How old was this individual? Not that I'm being ageist, but I can see a younger person doing this more than, say, a teacher in
their 40's or 50's.
It seems that many of the younger generation have a complete lack of understanding of basic protocols and civility. Chalk it up to living in an
everyone connected all-the-time world. No boundaries.
You make a very good point about extropolation from an on-line world to the "real" world. As for the teacher (who was 34yrs old by the way) the
principle said they might have a problem getting her out of the school system because she's "connected". I grew up in Chicago and being connected
usually meant being associated with the mob. Up here it means a problem teacher is backed up by the teachers union. Good teachers can't get a foot
in, and miserable one's have to commit murder before they get the boot.
I'l try to go through the DC Department of Education, sad to say most local politicians hare also connected in one way or another, Last, I'l paper
the area and let the public know what happened. I'm on pretty good terms with local and Federal law enforcement. The local detective I spoke to was
actually beyond words. He suggested I sue the city. Not for money but to make a very clear point. I'm talking to my lawyers how best to do that,
never sued any one before.
When will peole figure out a union is just like any other business. They don't decend from the clouds to provide wisdom, save you from all us evil
capatilist's. I own several companies, most not union shops, some are. The people (including part time) at the open shops have a huge waiting list to
work fr me. If I don't do my best for people, they fully free to join a union shop. It's there choice. I have never preveented union organizers to
speak to my people any time or any where. No one is waiting to join a union. My secret? Very sinple. They are paid fr a minimum 15% to 50%, after
taxes. They and this goes fo pert time as well the whole family gets medical/dental, life insurance payable to who they want it paid to, not me. Also
mental heakth/chemical dependenctcy cover. Most people get a company car (a prius). I have protection because unions hate me for this.
I have recieved death threats, hate male, and worse.The unions know they can't come close to what to what I can offer my employees. I got a
legitimate death threat only once and that enraged me, only once. I sicked the dogs on them. The two parties responsibllty are now spending time in
prison, they got the max. (about 6yrs).
I only once in 25years got pissed at an "organizer" who tried very hard to intimidate my staff we ar not shrinking violets. Be polite, decent and
act older then a 5yr old, and the rest will take care of it self.
I know I'm droning on about unions, but the Ninnesota Teachers Union has become a bully. Don't play by their rules and you risk, well use your
immagination. Also for the record, I have met many decent, kind and honest both members aand organizers they are hard working and seem to want to do
the best. My rules are very straight forward. ONE: Dont threaten me TWO: God help if you threaten my familily, that includes my cat, I have no kids
and am not married. THREE: Don't do any "dumpster diving", sneeking aroung my house or offices. FOUR: YOU want something try to just ask. FIVE: I
will use all resources to protect me and mine. I am a non-violent man but am no pasifist. We all have the right to defend our selves. Worse case, my
home and offices have among the best counter-invasion/counter-intrusion systems in the world. In fact I sell them to very select Government clients.
They were off when the teacher and kids wandered in. Never again, I was very lucky. Also for the guy who suggeseted I stop drinking and buy another
gun, I gave up drinking 15 years ago this September. I also had my fill of guns in the first Gulf War. And I was with the State Department Group of
Intelligence and Research. Ended up in one of the few Saudi cities taken (thank God for a short time) by Iraq. Scared my gibblets off! We took it back
in a few hours, the longest of my life. My Federal Protection Service guy got a very nasty arm wound, he made it, but I was hiding behind a piller,
and was not hit. How noble of me...
