The video below is an example of what is teaching your kids. I spent 7 years as a teacher, and I can tell you that there are some really good teachers in your schools. There are also some real pieces of shit. The Wisconsin woman in this video is the latter: you can see for yourself what she dresses like to go to work and the mouth she has as she is driving over 100 miles per hour in a 30 mph zone, passing people on the shoulder, and admits to having both mental health and drug problems. A real pillar of the community.
35 year old Amanda McKaig’s arrest is also reported in this news story.

I spent 27 years teaching in 3 countries, Costa Rica, Argentina and the US. I taught about every level: Middle School, High School and college courses. I saw over time the degradation of the teaching profession and in the US, how changing demographics ruined even excellent schools.
Except for my 2 years in Costa Rica—the school there reminded me of an American school in the 1950s—I was continuously in trouble with the administration because I was a veteran, a conservative and a Christian, and was not afraid of voicing my opinions.
Now retired at 69, there is no way in Hell I would enter another classroom. Besides, my method of teaching is entirely Old School: strict discipline and grades that actually reflected performance. I would not last one day in any “modern” classroom.
My final year was in 2019 at a Charter School in Oklahoma City. I had to witness a 45 year old, 6’7″ black male—he was a licensed “sex education instructor”—teach a white 7th grade girl how to put a condom on a dildo, and then tell the other students not to tell their parents. I was also informed by a board member that my job was in jeopardy and that I was in danger of legal action because of what I had said in a classroom. And just what heinous thing had I said? “Men and women are different”.
Screw these people.

LOL I’ve been watching a lot of Code Blue Cam’s videos lately… Apparently a lot of folks haven’t heard the advice “Yes Sir, No Ma’am, otherwise, keep your mouth shut and SAVE IT FOR THE JUDGE.”

I’m usually the first to yell about cops being terrible, violent, excessive, violating rights, being road pirates, etc… That stop was 100% justified. It was absolutely reckless endangerment, and that dude had the patience of a *saint*. He kept his mouth shut more than I would have. I probably would have pulled out a knife, cut the seatbelt, and yanked her out of the car well before she put it in gear.
I consider myself to be pretty chill with people, but she drove me nuts. I was on the verge of shouting at a youtube video…
I mean…I’m still not giving the cop a free pass. He probably road pirates all over the place, but in this instance, I think he handled things beautifully.

The main reason that I could not be a cop is that I *know* I don’t have patience for that kind of thing. I am a no nonsense kind of person, and I don’t think I would do well with power. I am more like “This is what the law says, and this is what we are going to do.”
As a result, many of my reports would end with the phrase “… and that’s when I shot him.”
So knowing that I don’t have that kind of temperament, I went in another direction.

LOL! “… and that’s when I shot him.”
Yeah. I actually took the test years ago, but half way through the interview process, a friend basically said “You’re about to enter a job where you are potentially violating the rights of human beings and harming them with a shield of ‘qualified immunity’. Having the unchecked ability to harm others ruins most men. You need to think about what you’re about to do.”
I spent the weekend thinking about it, and about everyone I knew and had worked with in Law Enforcement over the years, and then declined to continue with the process.

Introspection. That kicks in above the highest IQ level the police will usually hire, because you’d probably have too much to think.

Ideas are more powerful than guns. We would not let our enemies have guns, why should we let them have ideas.
Education is a weapon, whose effect depends on who holds it in his hands and at whom it is aimed.
Universal education is the most corroding and disintegrating poison that liberalism has ever invented for its own destruction.

Kudo’s to the officer – that should be a training video, in how he approached, kept calm, utilized the public’s assistance, handled a potentially dangerous situation (her restarting the car and trying to put in gear), etc, etc. Notice no tasers, no firearms, no punching or kicking.
Won’t say much about her except there’s a LOT more of them out there than most realize………

This is what you get when you have unions so strong that nobody can get fired for just cause. Seen it before, we’ll see it again.
There should be no, absolutely no, government workers unions. Gut them all, toss them all away.
Divemedic · February 3, 2023 at 2:41 pm
I disagree. Unfortunately, most decisions to discipline employees made by government employers are made for political reasons and not for the good of the taxpayer. (Incoming politician firing people so he can replace them with his friends/toadies)
I like how Florida’s employee unions work- the union is there, but is more of a representative to make sure that the law is followed and not there to protect bad employees.
It mostly works. Mostly.
There are still problems at both ends.

The self-important driver lacked concern for the danger she posed to pedestrians and other motorists. She would have dragged the police officer to his death had he not put her car into park.
