Re: “Guest Opinion

Is this the worst thing that could be dug about about what kids are being taught? More of this in business, please. "[He] understands that, ultimately, successful businesses in a free economy are virtuous at their coremeeting people's needs and doing so through ethical and mutually beneficial practices. In the end, [he] says, businesses that lack either virtuous purpose or ethical practices won'tand shouldn'tsucceed."

Re: “Guest Opinion

From Koch Brothers economics book, Make money the old fashioned way, inherit it, steal it, or make it by dumping you waste coal piles anywhere there are no regulations. Business ethics 101 according to the Koch Brothers, get everything you can get away with. Ethics, societal good, is for suckers. By all means never make a quality product, consumers want, at a fair price with a fair profit. Page one of the Koch Economics book, "Greed is good."

Re: “Guest Opinion

mmm... If the end result of this course is having more aspiring entrepreneurial doctors and kids that believe that success requires "meeting people's needs and doing so through ethical and mutually beneficial practices." and that "businesses that lack either virtuous purpose or ethical practices won'tand shouldn'tsucceed", it sounds like a good outcome, doesn't?...

Re: “Guest Opinion

You forgot to mention that the Koch brother's father was an avid racist and devout follower of the John Birch Society of which he was a founding member. If the Koch's do anything that seems beneficial to you on the face of it you can bet your azz that they are stealing something from you out the back door. Look at the way the Koch's stole from the Native American oil reserves on the reservation. They told their drivers to lie about the amount of oil that was taken from the ground and under report it. Consequently the Koch's stole MILLIONS of DOLLARS from Native Americans. When one of the brothers was asked why he did it since he was already a BILLIONAIRE he just replied,"Because I can!!" That in essence is the way that most wealthy people treat those who are not. Don't trust them regardless of the velvety smooth chocolate lies that hiss between their poison fangs.

Re: “Guest Opinion

Libertarians obsess about potential tyranny from government and ignore the tyranny and coercion that citizens face every day from increasingly powerful corporations and other private interests. It is an intellectually narrow and incomplete view. Wise public policy is focused on serving the public good; libertarian dogma purposefully ignores this.

Re: “Guest Opinion

Try telling the truth of why the father Koch became onvolved? He went to Russia in the 1930s to build refineries, befriended many communists and then became witness to the purges. His friends taken away in the middle of the night to be shot in the back of the head.

Russian archives show documents detailing plans to kill tens of thousands in these purges with Salins notes in the margins, "not dnough."

The Russian "handker" assigned to Koch detailed their plans to infiltrate America and do the same thing here. In the United States intellectual elites thought it ever so chic to be Stalin's "fellow travelers" all the way into the 70s. Now they are just open and blatant about it.

and by the way he is a traitor to his party, he only thinks of his pay check from Geroge Soros not the American people.

Re: “Beating Cancer How You Live

He believes he is a hero for getting captured and and doing what anyone else would do to survive in a prison camp. A real hero would have never got caught. I'm sure there are plenty out there that did not get caught.

Re: “A Certifiable Strategy

Just another example of _austerity_ coming in through the back door.
It is obvious that "our betters" want less taxes allocated to the public education system. What could possibly be more convenient than laying the groundwork for a de-professionalized calling? By instituting these "low-standards-to-enter-a-profession" policy the stage is set for paying future entrants peanuts. Voila! A massive savings to taxpayers, and yet another excuse to lower corporate taxes that favor you-know-who to the detriment of future generations.
As the wealthy can afford to send their kids to Groton, Phillips, Exeter, etc., what do they care about the once proud Public Education system that for generations has turned out authentic critical thinkers and not entitled silver-spooners such as the current occupant of the White House? A revolting and shameful proposal.
Be well.

Re: “A Certifiable Strategy

I had a BS in marketing and took education course work to become certified. The education courses were fun but taught me little about teaching. Only a short stint of teaching under supervision of a certified teacher was a bit helpful.

Pardon, note that the wording "his believes" ought to be "his beliefs" or in context "what he believes", thank you.
