They're supposed to be making things better and yet all we see is massive problems and making it nearly impossible to fire a bad teacher. People hired as teachers, who then acquire tenure, who then don't do their jobs, or who don't care about whether or not their students learn the material, stay as teachers, they just get moved from one district to another. It's called the Lemon Dance in some places.
And why should we pay for a teacher to get Viagra? And what makes you think Viagra is inexpensive? Do you know how much it costs? It can go up to about $2,000 for a 90-pill bottle. So, according to this, there are about 6 million teachers in America. Let's say in one year there are half a million teachers who get free Viagra, Cialis, or whatever, through teachers' benefits. And lets say that they're using an average of one bottle a year, just for the sake of argument; they'd be using about two pills per week. That means that 500,000 teachers using a years' worth of Viagra would cost $1,000,000,000. And you're saying that we can afford it?
DaCrum, I find your entire train of thought to be completely irresponsible. Do you even care what direction this country is headed in? If the Democrats have their way, our budget is going to have a $1.65 trillion deficit. The President should not be making the budget a political tool, he should be running the country like a decent leader would, and he's not!
The fact is that Mr. Doren does know what he's talking about. The only one that doesn't here is you.
