Re: “Crop Conundrum

"it's that they don't want to work, or at least work for us" -- raise wages. Improve working conditions, etc. You'll then find plenty of workers. Americans will work, but not in godawful conditions for slave wages.

If you give illegals a "path to citizenship" then they aren't going to want to work at the stinky chicken farm and you'll have to import another 12 million illegal aliens to work for your slave wages.

Re: “The Skinny

McSally has an F- on immigration - same grade as Raul Grijalva. She votes for increasing immigration and against enforcing immigration laws at virtually every opportunity.

Re: “A 'Fat Cat Tax'?

As long as it's not to pay for more and more illegal aliens and their children, I'm happy to pay more in taxes for useful things like smart infrastructure, mental health care, and education. Unfortunately that won't be the case.

Re: “The New Teacher Certification Rules: Is Everyone Else Wrong, or Am I?

Anything that breaks the stranglehold of the union/educational establishment and associated group think can't be too bad. From what I've seen an educational degree doesn't do much to make you a better teacher than other relevant life experience and/or education.
I wonder what the criteria are for firing them (or any teacher) if they're found to be incompetent?

Re: “Got a Bachelor's Degree? There May Be a Public School Teaching Job Waiting For You.

Fantastic. Nothing against our many wonderful teachers, but lots of professionals I know could teach better than many of the teachers I've met. I'm not sure what they teach in all those teaching classes, but most of it seems to have little or no practical application. I think it's just to get a fancy degree so everyone can feel good about themselves.
Mostly what's required is intelligence, patience, a willingness to learn, and a love of children - all attributes that education students typically possess. Oh, and it helps to know the subject you're teaching, something most education graduates don't.
Professionals could also bring some real world experience into the classroom which would be interesting to students.

Re: “AP: McSally Urges Colleagues To Vote for This 'Fucking Thing,' aka Zombie Trumpcare

Oh no, they're taking our Subsidies, aka free stuff.
Everyone wants them some of that free stuff. You know who can afford healthcare? Doctors, nurses, radiologists, etc. You know who can't? People with no skills, ambition, or work ethic.

Re: “Breakthrough or Reckless?

Thanks for the excellent article. As someone who has lost more than one person to suicide, I really appreciate the frank treatment of this issue.
