Teacher shortage: Another result of Reagan's culture wars

I keep reading this year about a supposed teachers shortage.

Opinion: If they want more teachers they should just start treating them nicer instead of trying to replace them with even lower paid "hired" help.

The war on teachers has been ongoing since the fallacious report "A Nation at Risk."

For those who don't remember, I believe that was back when Reagan started up the engines of the right wing culture war that has devastated our nation and led to the Tea Party extremism, the doom of the USA's middle class, perpetual war, a dysfunctional Congress, illegitimate courts, tax inequity, failed social nets and more.

"I saw the enemy and he was us." (Nietzsche)

VENEZUELA'S DEMISE: INEVITABLE COLLAPSE OF SOCIALISM, CAPITALIST COUP, OR SOMETHING ELSE?

DRAFT, WRITING IN PROGRESS, OPINION
Was the demise of Venezuela's government the inevitable result of socialism, the collapse of oil prices, a coup, or something else?

We are being told all the time that the nation's collapse is because socialism is bad  (very bad), and that capitalism is good (very good) and will fix it.. I don't believe it.

Local Group organizing: meeting Friday to discuss Crisis Center for the mentally ill and others.

A local group of concerned citizens is organizing to push for a regional, Coordinated Crisis Response Center in Benton and Franklin Counties.  The workshop will be held Friday morning (June 8, 2018) at Claude Oliver’s office in the Tri-Cities Realty Group, 1919 N. 20th Avenue, Pasco, Washington. Please join us if you can.


The Crisis Center is needed to prevent tragedies such as the shooting death of a young man (believed to have been mentally ill) for throwing rocks at police, as well as other local tragedies. For more information contact
