At this point.. I'm going to hide for a while.

It's times like this that I'm glad we DVR just about everything, because the political commercials have started.

I don't want to hear them.  They are vicious and nasty, from all sides!

I was asked whom I'm voting for.  I answered:  It's 2011... I'll know more in the summer.  I don't know yet.  But I do know that I have issues that I feel strongly about, and whomever I support needs to satisfy these more than others:

  • Gay Rights.  Seriously, if you're anti-gay I don't want you (this leaves most of the scary republicans out)
  • Female Reproductive Rights- stop threatening Planned Parenthood!
  • Health Insurance-  Our costs are too high... and the pre-existing conditions have cost friends of mine their lives.  (Obama took care of the pre-existing conditions.. let's hope it sticks)
  • Religion-  please don't be forcing your religious beliefs on me.  This is NOT a Christian nation.  READ YOUR HISTORY!  This nation was founded on the principle of religious freedom.  And I define "don't force your beliefs on me" as... your right to your religion ends where it interferes with me practicing mine.  (So can we stop this Intelligent Design bullshit?)
  • Cutting spending without a plan for more revenue.  This is high school Econ folks!!   Seriously.. ask ANY high school Econ teacher and they'll tell you the same thing.
  • NCLB- it's bad.  it's awful.  The entire country's attitude toward teaching stinks (Well, not everyone... but you get what I mean) and something needs to be done

In other news, I had a panic attack this morning, about teaching Religious Education of all things.  I can't do this!  I was fired from three different districts for christsakes!

We all know it's not true... but still.. it's a little scary.
