86. Teachers throughout the country are taking pay cuts, positions have been cut,

positions have been eliminated entirely and frankly, the job of teaching is not enhanced by the public and their demands, it is demeaned by the public and their demands. Public school teaching today is the bad child, the spoiled child, in the eyes of the general public. Its not true, of course, but that is the perception aided and abetted by the corporate no nothings who usually want to make a buck.

The NRA has a bias in favor of increased firearms. I get that. They can have their position. But its the public that has to act as a counter balance and its not happening. Politicians don't really believe in public service and could care less about safety in schools. They pay lip service to the public and gladly take money from interests that run counter to that.

Other than the military and social security, we run this country on the cheap. So we get cheap results. We have only to consider that we created a war in one country for so called WMD for ten years--long past the time even the public had to acknowledge that they did not exist. If that doesn't say idiocy I don't know what does. Imagine what that money could have done in this country, in our schools, to our infrastructure, among our seniors and for the next generation.

And what is the solution to this debacle in public policy? Tax he vulnerable, continue to place economic stresses on the middle class who let's face it-support the rich elite and the very poor. And it can't sustain itself, it won't sustain itself.

Our society is as sick as the repeat shootings we see.
