Class is in session, take your seats.

I was driving home today listening to the audio of the tenth grade teacher from Colorado rattling on about how we are same as the Taliban or Al Qaida, we kill people, they kill people, we are no better, they are no worse. It just depends on where you call home. What a load of Bravo Sierra.
"It's our job to conquer the world and make sure they live just like we want them to," Bennish can apparently be heard saying on the tape. "Now I'm not saying that Bush and Hitler are exactly the same, obviously they're not, OK. But (there are) eerie similarities to the tones that they use."

My question is, how many more teachers are filling our kids minds with this kind of left wing coffee house crap? I will bet you lunch at the Burger Barn in Esparto that he is just the tip of the glacier.

This must be a real power trip for people like Jay Bennish, they get to spew all their reasons to ridicule America and get little or no push back to their outrageous statements. It must make you feel like a real man to tell children that America sucks, as he breaks their little bubble of patriotism and fills it with self loathing and doubt. I wonder if he goes home each night and checks Moveon or Kos to make sure he is up to date on the latest reasons why we should hate our nation.

If Mr. Bennish wants to sit behind a desk and rail against our nation, he should apply for a position in the Ethnic Studies department at the University of Colorado. He can chat it up with Ward Churchill.

I am seriously thinking about becoming a teacher. Someone has to teach our children useful information. How to read, write and become proficient in mathematics would be a start. When the children are caught up in those basics, they may should take a few other classes. My classes would be a semester long and have a two part grade structure, attendance and a written final. Here is the Yolo Cowboy curriculum for Junior High and above.

Jobs; How do you get a good one, and how you can get stuck in a bad one?
Logic and Reasoning; A dog will only put his nose on a hot stove once, why are you so dense?
American History; How did we get here? And why did we leave the Old World?
World Civics; Democratic Capitalism is not perfect, but it kicks the crap out of all other forms of government.
Life Lessons; Why some people are mean and why you need to strive toward excellence.
Manners; Why you open doors for women and how to loose a friend by lying.


Those are just off the top of my head, what class would you teach if given the opportunity?

Economics!
Many of the problems still unfixed in out country stem from the economic illiteracy of virtually all adults.

Well put! As the parent of an outspoken, conservative high school student, I'd have encouraged the recording as well. And when his grade was affected because of the teachers' left leanings, we would have marched into the Principal's office.

This guy is a creep and should lose his job.

This crap goes on on a daily basis here in California. One of my daughter's high school teachers hates God so much that if my daughter brings up anything with God concerning mission trips, books or essays, she gets an F on that assignment.

Sorry to burst your bubble, but this is "normal" in a public school in the Left Coast.
