Some are fasting against the Tea Party/Republican budget cuts (video link) — but they shouldn't be saving any dessert for Obama and the Dems who are enabling these corpoholics.


  1. Welcome back! I signed up to fast one day. It seems I have a lot of company. I don't know if it will do any good, but it can't hurt.

  2. Hi, Moriah, nice to hear from you.
    I'm not really back. In fact, I took terminal leave and am no longer teaching. I wasn't teaching my subject anyway, so couldn't see the point. I'd say they were marginalizing me for my activism, but I just heard about a whole bunch of music teachers with horror stories and these people are NOT activists. So who knows.

    Nothing, in fact, was making sense anymore. Couldn't be a part of it and hold on to my integrity.

  3. Your story as an ATR and the choice to leave rather than stay at what so many people see as a gravy train is worth sharing. Enjoy retirement.

  4. Thanks.
    I'm birdwatching, which has a lot of things going for it that teaching didn't:
    a. the time to study and learn,
    b. long-standing, respected traditions of what works, and
    c. guidebooks that don't try to portray things other than what they are.
