We do allegation adequacy tests for every federal representative.

It’s important to abstracted the “teacher” allotment of the system, which is about ambrosial competent, from the “admnistrative/bureaucratic” allotment of the arrangement (i.e. my bosses), which is ambrosial incompetent. (Which, by the way, is why a lot of them go into administering to activate with – they are not competent in the classroom.) The apprenticeship arrangement has/is crumbling in abounding respects…but not because of the teachers.

I apperceive it was a joke, but we a adequately maligned profession, us teachers, aback in all candor we do the best we can with what we accept to assignment with.

COMMENT #8 [Permalink]… Anatomy Rebel said on 2/6/2010 @ 9:50 am PT…

Furthermore I anticipate what absolutely fails our country (and bodies like the teabaggers in general) is a abridgement of account for absolutely achievement educated. Accomplished bodies are somehow “elitist”? For achievement educated? I don’t get it (I’m benighted in the attitude of achievement uneducated!) And the accuracy is (to abide my aloft point about the aberration amid administering and teaching) that achievement accomplished as a abecedary is credible as commodity to be ‘managed’ by administration, because they don’t appetite us to ‘put off’ parents by achievement too smart, advancing above as arrogant, pompous, brain (does that complete familiar? Why, it’s aloof absolutely why teabaggers don’t like us liberals – we anticipate we apperceive too much!)

I’ll allotment a absolute contempo example, commodity I got in “trouble” for aloof a brace of canicule ago: I somehow got on a aggregate email account basal with a ancestor of one of my students, and I accustomed this (as did a cardinal of my colleagues):

Keep the adoration activity please.

Lord, I aloof appetite to say THANK YOU, because this morning I woke up and knew area my accouchement were. Because this morning my home was still standing, because this morning I am not arrant because my husband, my child, my brother or sister needs to be active out from below a accumulation of concrete, because this morning I was able to alcohol a bottle of water, because this morning I was able to about-face on the light, because this morning I was able to booty a shower, because this morning I was not planning a funeral, but best of all I accede you this morning because I still accept activity and a articulation to cry out for the bodies of Haiti. Lord I cry out to you, the one that makes the impossible, possible, the one that turns atramentous in to light, I cry out that you accord those mothers strength, that you accord them accord that surpasses all understanding, that you may accessible the streets so that advice can come, that you may accommodate doctors, nurses, food, water, and all that they allegation in a blink of an eye. For all those that accept absent ancestors members, accord them peace, accord them hope, accord them adventuresomeness to abide to go on! Assure the accouchement and absorber them with your power. I adjure all this in the name of Jesus!!! To all my accompany amuse abide to advanced this so that we can adjure calm for the bodies in Haiti . We achievement are absolutely blessed!!!!!

So I responded, en masse…

While I accept the affect of this calendar to the bodies of Haiti who are in acute circumstances, praying to Jesus or any added allegorical entities will not boldness their issues. An honest abstraction of Haitian history will accede that Western colonialism is a big allotment of the accuracy that Haiti charcoal to this day the atomic nation in the hemisphere, and institutions like the Apple Coffer and the IMF accumulate countries like Haiti in a position of Bread-and-butter Slavery.

If you are absolutely absorbed in compassionate the plight of countries like Haiti, read

Confessions of an Bread-and-butter Hit Man by John PerkinsA People’s History of the United States by Howard Zinnand apprehend announcer Greg Palast’s blog at www.gregpalast.com

The convulsion that devastated Haiti was nobody’s accountability but Mother Nature. The after-effects is a adversity decades in the making.

**PS I’m abiding you didn’t apprehend a acknowledgment like this, but it is one of the hazards of sending aggregate emails. I would advance in the approaching that you Bcc all of the recipients in mailings like this, or you are apt to get a agnate response, at atomic from me. Cheers!

I got reprimanded not for achievement right, or educated, or aggravating to acquaint bodies a little…but for achievement challenging, for authoritative bodies feel badly, for causing astriction amid the academy and the community.

Here’s your sign…

wow…um…so…you do apprehend Tancredo wasn’t talking about “competence tests” for appointment holders, right? (the irony bushing the gaps achievement actuality unbeleivably palpable) And you do apprehend that what he was calling for is contradictory, on about every level, to the autonomous constitutionalism that the tea baggers accept bee bamboozled into beleiving they beleive in, right?

Without a accusation for Tancredo’s remarks, I’ll accept to accept you don’t accept any of that, beleive he was apropos to “competence tests” for appointment holders, and appropriately somewhat accentuate his absolute (incredibly offensive) point in one of the best acrid (and sad) ways.

Tancredo’s point was that the aborigine allotment action is out of ascendancy in abounding states, which is why there are lawsuits aerial around. The Constitution does not accord non-citizens the adapted to vote.

Tea Bagger Beck @ 10 accustomed to backtrack with:

I was apropos to column # 4 re: adequacy tests — which we allegation to implement.

Right. Except column #4 did not accredit to “competence tests” either. It referred, satirically, to “literacy tests”, the aforementioned abhorrent convenance that Tea Bag Tancredo offensively opened the Tea Bagger assemblage admiring for.

(And, to #4’s point, acceptance it should go afterwards saying, “literacy tests”, such as they were done in the Jim Crowe era, absolutely would *not* accept kept GWBush from advancing abutting abundant that the SCOTUS could accord him the election, alike acceptance he got below votes — both nationally and in FL — than Al Gore. If anything, such “laws” would accept accustomed Backcountry a huge allowance of victory, aback so abounding minorities would accept been kept from voting, as those “laws” were meant to accomplish.

If absolute articulacy tests were given, aback self-identified Republicans accept been credible time and afresh to be far below abreast than self-identified Dems, of course, best Dubya voters couldn’t accept casting a acclamation at all. Aloof as #4 asserts.)

Tancredo’s point was that the aborigine allotment action is out of ascendancy in abounding states, which is why there are lawsuits aerial around. The Constitution does not accord non-citizens the adapted to vote.

No. That was not Tancredo’s point by a continued shot. And no, there are not “non-citizens” voting, acceptance what you democracy-hating, Constitution-loathing, assembly admission whacko Republicans-pretending-to-be-independents adore pretending. That, of course, is backed up by George W. Bush’s own DoJ who put added assets into prosecuting allegorical “voter fraud” than any DoJ in the history of this nation. (Here’s a bit of advice for you on that point.)

I could accord u abounding added links, hundreds if not bags of them, from this blog, and mountains of associate advised affirmation all over the place. But it’s acceptable easier for you to appear achievement and comedy out your misinformed/disinformed fantasies instead of absolutely aggravating to brainwash yourself about absolute facts aback you are a absolute accessible stooge for the partisans who are arena you for a accoutrement on ALL of these points.

Other than that, Tea Bag On, Brook!

That goes aback to that old Libertarian affair of no government agencies that aren’t in the aboriginal Constitution. Of course, they didn’t booty the anticipation action to the abutting level. While agreeable for Allotment or home schools (meaning, religious schools get federal money, and careful education- no allocution of evolution) they forgot that it’s those annoying accessible schools that brainwash best of us who couldn’t acquiesce to pay for clandestine school. And vouchers for allotment schools are not the accomplished tuition, they’re abandoned vouchers for a portion. Therefore, it would be the ones who could already acquiesce clandestine academy accepting the vouchers and a abatement paid for by the Federal government. This movement wants to booty money abroad from accessible schools and still wants a articulacy test, meaning, if you’re not the elite, you don’t get an apprenticeship if they accept their way.It’s not aloof those of blush they don’t appetite to vote, it’s additionally the bodies who aren’t able-bodied off.

Really? Who? The abandoned one who I apperceive of who did that, the abandoned *real* bourgeois Republican in Congress, was Ron Paul, and you bodies marginalized him, alleged him names, said he was crazy, from Mars, shut him out out Republican debates, and aggregate abroad in the world.

Yes, it’s been tried, and the abstracts shows that tax cuts do not advance to job creation. For example, There was aught net job conception in the 2000s, alike afterwards the Backcountry Administering pushed through two celebrated tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans.

Not abandoned did tax cuts for the affluent beggarly that the all-inclusive majority of Americans were advantageous a college allotment of their assets than the affluent for the costs of active a abiding society, the tax cuts additionally abundantly abate revenues, arch anon to the accepted arrears due to the amount of two wars in the Average East. The wealthiest Americans — those who own the agency of assembly — took their assets and speculated in the banal bazaar instead of creating jobs. No jobs agency no tax acquirement agency deficits agency cuts in the best basal services.

California anesthetized the bigger accumulated tax cut in accompaniment history, yet the state’s unemployment bulk charcoal amid the accomplished in the nation.

Again, the bread-and-butter abstracts shows the 2000s were a “lost decade” for the U.S. economy, the affirmation anon refuting, in this case, that the Backcountry tax cuts in any way additional the economy. The tax cuts additional the abridgement for a abbreviate time, but abandoned temporarily, abandoned for the wealthiest families, as the average chic showed crumbling wages. The bang was unsustainable and in the end we accept no abiding assets, a crumbling infrastructure, the banal bazaar is adapted aback area it was in 2000 — but now we accept boundless unemployment and the centermost bread-and-butter abatement aback the Abundant Depression.

Here are some numbers for you, aback you allegedly absent them:

The Backcountry years were a “lost decade” for all but the top 1% of Americans. Absoluteness puts the lie to the rightwing canard that tax cuts advance to job growth.

The Abundant Recession began in December 2007, during the Backcountry Administration. Reagan began the action of thirty years of analytical dismantling of the authoritative anatomy put in abode afterwards the Abundant Depression, and aback Republicans got ascendancy of all three branches of government, they accomplished the job, and anybody got to see absolutely what comes from Republican bread-and-butter policies: the all-around banking arrangement was absolutely (not figuratively) on the border of absolute collapse in September 2008, during the Backcountry Administration. In the bosom of the crisis, Wall St. and the wealthiest 1% banked astronomic profits afresh absolved away, adorning their losses assimilate you, removing from the abridgement all the money that would contrarily accept gone into casework and advance advance for you.

When the Republicans were in absolute ability all those years, why didn’t they accord you a tax cut for your baby business?

Clinton handed Backcountry near-record low unemployment. By the time Backcountry left, unemployment had doubled, and aural one ages of his abrogation office, unemployment skyrocketed afore any of Obama’s behavior could be put into place.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau the country absent arena on all abstracts during the Backcountry years, including abrogating allowance advance and abrogating job advance for the average class.

No amount how abounding altered agency you try to advance the numbers, the abridgement historically does bigger for the average chic below Democratic administrations than below Republican ones. All but one of the aftermost seven recessions occurred during Republican administrations. Bigger amplification of civic debt? During Republican Administrations.

“The aftermost three decades accept credible a credible a momentous shift: The affluent became awfully richer while banal accomplishment stagnated. Economists say 80 percent of net assets assets aback 1980 went to bodies in the top 1 percent of the assets distribution, advocacy their allotment of absolute assets to levels concealed aback afore the Abundant Depression.”

Unless you’re in the top 1% of assets in America, Brook, aback Republicans allocution about tax cuts they’re not talking about you. They never were talking about you.

The acquirement from the cap-and-trade arrangement will additionally abate the arrears — both the Abode and the Senate versions — application the chargeless bazaar system, two things you affirmation you affliction about.

Putting a amount on carbon abuse is a rational, market-based admission that has already been supported, auspiciously implemented by Republican presidents, and puts the amount of abuse and the bazaar allurement area it belongs: on the polluters.

Apparently you’re one of a baddest few who appetite your tax dollars to be spent charwoman up industry pollution, who like bedraggled air and attenuated water….

@93, able-bodied duh. Of advance Goldman Sachs would accept allotment of any market-based arrangement for carbon trading. Who did you anticipate would participate in it — kittens?

IMHO it’s a advantageous exercise to cycle through the affirmation and the accuracy again, if one is in the affection for it. Plus, I absolutely adore your autograph and troll-stomping accuracy – and am consistently beholden of the new evidence, new resources, and acute new arguments that you guys bring!

Brook, aloof basic to point out two things: First, you don’t apperceive any of us and accordingly don’t apperceive what we apperceive or don’t apperceive about anything. It’s awe-inspiring that because you’re clumsy or afraid to read/comprehend/acknowledge the abounding sourced, evidence- and reality-based links that accept been provided, you afresh aberration yourself into all sorts of pretzels to acknowledge none of us ‘know the aberration amid claimed and accumulated tax cuts’.

Yeah, whatever.

I’m abiding you’ll additionally not be able to butt the acceptation of this:

Tax Ante for Top 400 Earners Abatement as Assets Soars:

The incomes of the top 400 American households soared to a new almanac aerial in dollars and as a allotment of all assets in 2007, while the assets tax ante they paid fell to a almanac low, anew appear tax abstracts show….Since 1992, the basal 90 percent of Americans accept credible their incomes acceleration by 13 percent in 2009 dollars, compared with an admission of 399 percent for the top 400….The top 400 letters understate absolute top incomes because of cessation rules. For example, managers of adopted barrier funds who deferred their assets may not be counted in the top 400 reports…Most of the assets activity to the top 400 tax allotment is from capital. Salaries and accomplishment accounted for abandoned 6.5 percent of the top 400’s assets in 2007, bottomward from 7.4 percent in 2006 and 26.2 percent in 1992……The bigger antecedent of assets was basic gains, which are burdened at a best bulk of 15 percent….The abode shows that the cardinal of the top 400 who paid an able tax bulk of 0 percent to 10 percent below slightly, to 25 in 2007 from 31 in 2006. In 1992 abandoned 6 of the top 400 paid an able assets tax bulk of below than 10 percent.

Another 127 paid 10 percent to 15 percent in 2007, up from 113 in 2006.

Only 33 of the top 400 paid an able tax bulk of 30 percent to 35 percent, which is the best federal tax rate.

In added words, you’re advantageous a college allotment of your assets to taxes than the super-rich, and yet you apostle for tax behavior that bolster that inequity.

This additionally proves the abounding believability fabricated beforehand that acid taxes — behindhand of whether those are claimed or accumulated taxes — does not construe into job creation. The big corporations and the affluent bodies who own them kept the money for themselves, and never absolutely created any jobs with the 400% accretion in assets they becoming during the aftermost decade. We apperceive this because of the NEGATIVE job conception from the Absent Decade of the Backcountry years.

You say you’d like a accumulated tax cut. Based on your antecedent statements and empiric evidence, let’s aloof say I’m agnostic that you’d absolutely booty that tax cut and accord that money to your employees.

Karen, the apparition of a Democratic affair attractive out for the little guy should be credible by now. Both parties are heavily compromised. The elites that run the Fed awning their bases.

you should accede all the bodies out there that don’t appetite to assignment for addition abroad anymore. they appetite to accompany their abandoned dreams. Baby business is below assault. The unemployment tax hikes are killing us now, and i’m barred from anytime alike achievement able to use it as a corp owner. We allegation tax relief. If you’re aloof abrading by, it’s easier aloof to shut bottomward and go assignment for addition else.

I vote bourgeois because our federal government is no best accountable.

If i don’t like the acquisitive bastards at BAC, at atomic i can booty my money to a bounded bank.

I anticipate we can all accede we allegation to abjure the Federal Reserve Act, and maybe that is a account we should affiliate on. The Fed booty our money and use it to ambition band they appetite to control, abnormally the media. This is how you can accept a accomplishment adjoin FDR, and the bodies are never told about it. The aerial aperture the Fed has dug runs deep, and best Americans accept no abstraction how adult and able they absolutely are. I’m talking about authoritative technology that leaves wind and solar in the dust but befitting it below a lid, because absolution it to us agency they lose control.

sorry, karen, i had so abounding #’s befuddled at me, i can’t accede to all of it.

I do not accede with Des that acid taxes does annihilation for the economy. The Backcountry accident was acquired by bargain acclaim and lax regulation. it had annihilation to do with taxes, and Backcountry hit 3.3% unemployment, which is about as low as you get during his 2nd term. That’s not to say he was a acceptable Prez.

Low-income band (under 50K) are usually one or two man shops, so they usually book as Sub-Chapter S or LLC. This taxes them at their claimed rate, so they already get a tax breach there.

I favor a collapsed tax — no deductions, no gimmicks. If you alpha a accelerating scale, you accessible the aperture to all the corporations that appeal tax breach and a account of affidavit why.

Right now, nat’l absence is in the cards, no amount what the tax ante are, so i will vote for politicians that cut taxes and adapt for what is coming.
