Bad Teacher Movie Review: Alternative Media (tags)
Bad Teacher is ?gratifying? as eye-candy and verbal shock. It is an enjoyable movie precisely because it is not lame?at least not as lame as many of its movie reviews. And in the final analysis there is little subtly to this dark comedy?how might we say?as Andrew Breitbart?s description of a certain Anthony Wiener cellphone photo he so nobly withheld as: ??beyond the beyond?? There is nothing wrong with comparing the ?psychology? of this new release to a maybe-to-be-released movie about Anthony Weiner?s downfall and destruction within America?s misandrynous climate. Brain cells are not what Bad Teacher is about?has the American movie industry produced a movie that has enhanced anyone?s brain cells?

Union-Bashing and Teacher-Bashing In The Wake of the Rigo Ruelas Tragedy (tags)

The Democrats vs. Public Education (tags)
Public education in the United States is under heavy attack.

Obama recently announced his “race to the top” program to “reform” education. Much like Bush’s No Child Left Behind, Obama’s plan represents progress for education in name only.

So here it is again, presented as a fascinating sociological insight into the peace-loving and wholly humanistic fundamentalist muslim culture.
