    So still nothing about the topic and just directing your angst at the posters?
    Then why are you jumping on me for saying that I feel it's a poor decision to make assumptions when there is a lack of evidence?

    I didn't jump on you for saying that. Show me where I jumped on you for saying that.

    Then elaborate on how I was trolling. All I did was ask a poster to reword his sentence that was a response to my post. That way, I could actually understand it and formulate a response.

    Try placing an "n" between the "I" and "d" in the word "mid". And let's not be a grammar nazi out of obtuseness.

    Really so you where in the class room on Jan 20 2009 listing to what the teacher was actually discussing then right because nowhere have I been able to find what they discussed that day.

    As for taking the transcript and breaking it down well we who do some sort of teaching do this all the time. When I was at the War College we would take military plan of famous Generals and battles and break them down and discuss the pro]s and con's

    The same thing that this Teacher did oh and for the record since this is a History Class breaking down Transcripts is part of teaching History or do you have a time machine for all of us to go back and hear some of Histories famous Speech's like the Gettysburg Address/Prevents the Revolt of his Office/Justice for Ireland ect. ect.

    Were you in the room where they decided to let the teacher go and you heard all the reasons? If not, why do you ASSUME he was let go because of his conservative beliefs when you have nothing else to go on?

    True I wasn't but I have read the article and it's very clear to me that he was fired for his political views.

    I never said they couldn't, but looking at Page 1 Scorpion is the one that accused the school for letting him go because of a conservative view without knowing the view point of the school.

    Now where is YOUR scorn for Scorpion's view?
