Sorry for being quiet for over a week, it's deer season.
It's also been quiet because the Vero crowd has toned down the racist rhetoric and Bob Moore is not at their beck and call for newspaper headlines. The only thing they have is my buddy Jaime's blog where he's got some kind of weird, convoluted accusation that "teachers" hate Dori because members of the teachers union said one thing but the official process has yet to be processed so it's a big scandal... I know, I'm as bored as you are with how dumb that is.
First of all, the only teachers that ever give a shit about the teachers union are the ones who are in trouble all the time. I come from a family of teachers and I can tell you they've never ever cared for the teachers union. This idea that every rank and file teacher in the district is somehow dying to serve the union and all their causes is incorrect. The vast majority don't give a shit.
With that said, it's par for the course that all teachers always hate their school board and their superintendent. Just like the rest of you hate your bosses. The school board is why they don't make a million a year with seven months off. Same story, different job - we've all been there. You're an idiot if you thought that any teacher would ever support a sitting member of the school board. As far as teachers are concerned, the school board is detrimental to their very being.
That's not to say that they don't endorse candidates for office. It's only after that candidate is elected that they hate them for not shortening the school year to a month and tripling their salary. They are no different than you and I in that respect.
The fact is - there's nothing there and the grasping at straws has begun. Unions are dead mainly because America has seen the communities they killed. They were never a force in El Paso and never will be. Trying to make something of some non-endorsement from a union group that only exists because they thieve from teachers against their will is a sad attempt at piling on a race that is already done. Vero is the anointed one. Why kick her opponents in the face for no reason?
