Teach them well and let them lead the way.
(And people wonder why I hate the 80s)
Today is a good day.
I was subbing in a class today. I do makework when I sub, many subs are totally useless so that’s the way it works.
I make it clear at the beginning of the class I have a rule, be quiet. If you can’t keep quiet, we’ll move on to “no talking” so they talk quietly and I roam the class seeing if there are questions, asking them questions, calming them down and just chatting.
So this class today started talking about Obama wanting to take their guns and then they started making fun of our First Worf.
I had to leave the class for a second when one girl said, “Have you noticed that in her Nickleodeon commercials against obesity she keeps getting fatter?”
And then I get home and Rand Paul is filibustering the nomination of the head of the Cox Skybomber Armada, asking Obama if he thinks he can kill me (spoiler alert: He does), over and over and over and pointing out how they keep avoiding answering or ambivalently answering it in a way that seems to show he does.
Now he’s talking about how we should notice treason again!
Woo-fucking-Hoo!!!!!!!! That’s fucking awesome.
He’s doing the filibuster the old-fashioned way, not the “civilized” way where they say, “We’re going to filibuster this so let’s just drop it.”
I prefer this way. Especially since some people (I’m looking at you Minitrue) are going to have to report Rand Paul’s question and Obama’s refusal to answer.
That’s a good way to get around their moat around the President.
