Those who do the work in the workplace should get the rewards
03 Apr 2013
People are taught to have a 19th century, romantic notion of capitalism — a myriad of small enterprises competing in a free market. But a “free market” has never existed. Capitalism was built on pushing people off their farms and passing draconian laws to force them into the new factories, and continues to be based on violence.

Epic Princess
03 Apr 2013
It has become all but too obvious that politicians will gladly give our taxpayer money away to wealthy corporate interests without the slightest flinch or moment's hesitation.

On the death of president Chavez/No hero/No dictator
03 Apr 2013

A Curious New York Times Article on Teacher Evaluations
03 Apr 2013
A recent New York Times article, “Curious Grade For Teachers: Nearly All Pass,” finds incredulous the idea that, “In Florida, 97 percent of teachers were deemed effective or highly effective in the most recent evaluations.” The author goes on to cite similar percentages in other states and concludes: “The teachers might be rated all above average, like students in Lake Wobegon, for the same reason that the older evaluation methods were considered lacking.” In other words, the teachers score well because the measuring standard is flawed. And this conclusion is reinforced by the observation that teachers’ high marks were achieved “even when students were falling behind.”
