Teacher Who Told Student He Could Be Arrested Will Keep Her Job

Teacher Who Told Student He Could Be Arrested Will Keep Her Job
SCREENSHOT
Hunter Rogers appeared on Fox News to recount the incident involving his teacher.

The social studies teacher who became irate earlier in the year when a student asked a question about President Barack Obama will return to educate students.

Tanya Dixon-Neely made national news after she told a student that people were arrested for disrespecting former President George W. Bush. The “fact of the day”
for the students was that Mitt Romney was a bully. Hunter Rogers asked, “Didn’t Obama bully somebody though?” (He was referring to a story recounted in Obama’s book Dreams of My Father.) Following Rogers’ question, Dixon-Neely told the student he could be arrested.

Superintendent Judy Grissom said in a statement:

While I remain deeply concerned about the performance documented in the recording of Ms. Dixon-Neely’s classroom, I have concluded that she should have a chance to improve her teaching skills. Under these circumstances, suspension without pay for 10 workdays and a requirement that Ms. Dixon-Neely complete a monitored growth plan is an appropriate resolution.

Most of Dixon-Neely’s teaching time has been spent in the Alternative to Suspension Program, but she was given a regular classroom because of staffing needs. According to Grissom, Dixon-Neely “will be reassigned to her position in the Alternative to Suspension Program.”

Grissom says she is ready for the school district to move on.

    Dixon-Neely is an eloquent example of why we need teacher competency testing. There are WAY too many Dixon-Neelys out there programming our children.

    • Robert Smith

      Let’s see where the truth is: “On July 4th, 2004, Jeffery and Nicole Rank attended an public Independence Day event in Charleston, WV where President Bush was to speak. Despite the fact that the event was open to the public and was held on public land, the Ranks were arrested for wearing anti-Bush t-shirts.”

        No one is saying anyone is perfect, especially government, but then all of the examples of denial of liberty you cite were not conducted in a public school classroom. The “teacher” in question attempted to bully, and browbeat students, and even lied to them.
        You can try to change the subject or obfuscate the issue (as is the progressive thing to do) but that does nothing to address the problem or win any argument. Robert, none of us can do anything about the past, spend your efforts and energy on things that matter.

        Dear Robert Smith,

        You write: “Let’s see where the truth is” Yes, let’s. Congress passed 399-3 and Obama signed HR347 which legalized what you are complaining about (and I assume blaming on Bush). http://www.slate.com/articles/news_and_politics/jurisprudence/2012/03/the_anti_protest_bill_signed_by_barack_obama_is_a_quiet_attack_on_free_speech_.html

        Your attempted misdirection is recognized and unappreciated.

        Best wishes,
        Bob

        P.S. I suppose next you’ll blame God or an abortion doctor?

      • Vigilant

        Mr. Livingston, I must chastise you! (:-)

        I thought we were going to be excused from Smith’s anti-Christian comments today for a change. Then you opened the door with the “G” word!

        Get ready for the trademark RS screeds…..

        • http://boblivingstonpl.wordpress.com Bob Livingston

          Dear Vigilant,

          You write: “I thought we were going to be excused from Smith’s anti-Christian comments today for a change.” Why would today be different? It’s all he has. We were told there would be people like him (see Romans 1).
          “28 And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper, 29 being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice; they are gossips, 30 slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, 31 without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful; 32 and although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them.” (NASB)

          I’ll make you this promise, if he continues with his off-topic lunatic ravings, I will ban him for the day.

          Best wishes,
          Bob

      • Robert Smith

        What I have pointed out is that folks WERE arrested during the Bush administration.

        She was not lying.

        So, what was that you were yammering about misdirection?

        Rob

      • Rick

        Just these two people? There were a lot more. At least haif of the liberals in Hollywood have disrespected him as well. How many were arrested? Were the Anti-Bush T-shirts they wore hand-made? If not there was some industry responsible for their production. Protests are part of the freedom we enjoy. It was said to be an issue of being in a ‘No Trespassing’ area which was later dropped.

      • vieteravet

        And they got an 80,000 dollar settlement, sounds like a hell of a deal! She didn’t sound intelligent enough on the video to teach pre-school.

      • http://PersonalLibertyNews David

        Lets see you go to an obuma rally with an anti obuma shirt on.something about trying to incite violence,or shouting fire in a movie theater?That is what they were arrested for so what is the truth?Well…

      • http://naver samurai

        Well said Bob! If anyone else would have said that to Rob, he would have laid on a thick layer of anti-Christian bashing, lies, hate, innuendo, and rhetoric. Why didn’t you try laying into Bob like you do everyone else, Rob?

      No one should be arrested for speach unless of course we are talking about yelling fire or something that causes injury or death to others. But It would not surprise me that these people that were arrested were probably part of one of our Communist unions especially since it was in WV!

      • Vigilant

        As always, another attempted diversion from the subject of the article. Is there any doubt whatsoever left that Smith is a paid Alinskyite shill?

      • Robert Smith

        Sort that out with Mr. Livingston.

        In fact I’m not paid for my efforts here.

        BTW, I do find it interesting how those on the right keep citing a Jewish guy who worked for the poor. Haven’t I heard something like that before?

        Rob

      • Vigilant

        Mr. Livingston, I told you this would happen.

      • firefight

        Robert,.
        Yes, I do recall this one. Another attempt by the progressive entitlists to get someone else to pay for their bad choices. Drug dealers and addicts who use infected needles get aids and people who ignore protection while engaging in promiscuous sex get aids and when they do, they want the government to pay the bill to keep their miserable lives afloat. So, they chained themselves to the entrance of the building and were consequently removed with the assistance of bolt cutters so people entering and exiting the building wouldn’t have to come in contact with potentially AIDS infected individuals. Seems like a proper thing to do for health purposes. Do you recall any of the incidents where individuals with AIDS intentionally failded to disclose their condition and intentionally infected others with this deadly disease. To my way of thinking, AIDS IS like a gun. It has the potential to kill when a person of low character possess it.

        This matter of the teacher, however, is something that needs to be addressed from a different direction. Why the hell is a teacher indoctrinating our kids to follow a path other than the one our founding fathers set forth for us? Why is SHE bullying this kid? What exactly is the agenda in our schools these days? And……what happened to the first ammendment of our constitution and why didn’t the kid know enough to call her on it? I’ll tell you why. This teacher, like many others, doesn’t want our kids to know they have freedom of speech and she surely didn’t tell this kid that he did. Instead, she chose to put him in his place by telling him he could be arrested for the question he asked. THAT is why she needs to be removed from any kind of teaching job. To me, she represents the infection that is taking our nation down the drain. Our kids need to know what our Constitution and Bill of Rights is and what it represents to THEIR future and THEIR freedoms and how the educational process has been slowly removing all of this from the curriculum so as to impose their Marxist and Socialist philosophies. We need to take an active role in monitoring what is being taught to our kids and get these kinds of teachers off our payrolls.

      • Vigilant

        RS says, “In fact I’m not paid for my efforts here.”

        Your efforts? Other than denigrating Christians, what is you mission?

        Like GALT, nc, and TIME, you have a one-track mind that thrives on incessant and gratuitous insertion of your obssession, whether relevant to the thread or not.

      • Robert Smith

        I pointed out AFTER YOU BROUGHT HIM UP that Alinskyite was Jewish and he did work for the poor.

        Are you objecting to the truth about your own citation? It seems you are opposed to helping the poor and ending injustice. Isn’t that what most folks protest about?

        Except for the tea baggrs I don’t recall any protests that didn’t involve some sort of injustice at the root. I’m sure your mileage will vary with the tea baggers sticking up for the alleged injustice inflicted upon the 1%, but I think you get the idea.

        Comrade ‘r,’ WHY are you so obsessed with GB? Have you considered professional counseling? It’s almost as though you blame GB for everything – and I mean EVERYTHING. Do you think GB is still in the W H?
        Your W H ‘God’ might disagree with that point. As usual, you can’t seem to keep on any given topic [because you're a teenager?]. This article deals with a “teacher” who has been brainwashed. It seems as though that this administration has NO use for free speech. I expected to see the “teacher” pampered and protected – and that’s what happened (how predictable). After all, she DOES LOVE her W H ‘God.’
        This is simply one more example of the MANY flaws of public education. It is NO coincidence that comrade ‘r’ is a prime ‘example’ of what comes out of public schools. Oh, you DID graduate, didn’t you? Pathetic.

      • Robert Smith

        s c asks: “WHY are you so obsessed with GB?”

        It was part of the discussion, if you can remember.

        The truth is that folks were arrested for speaking out during the Bush administration. I gave citatations of specific incidents to prove the teacher wasn’t lying about that as she was accused.

        Rob

      • vieteravet

        Connecting us the far left web sites doesn’t help your argument. Those people were chained to one-another; they were an obstruction!

      • http://http//yahoo.com sophillyjimmy

        Yo Smith, you could put whatever spin you want on these 21 people being arrested but the truth of the matter is we have laws in America and although peaceful protesting is our Constitutional Rights, the law also states that you must get a permit to protest and you cannot protest on private property and your axample that you provided clearly states that the protesters were in fact arrested for trespassing so they weren’t arrested for protesting. If 21 AIDS infected protestors chained themselves to my property I would also call the police since trespassing on private property in order to protest falls under Civil Disobedience so before showing an article dated back in 2004, know what the article says, it could keep you from looking foolish.

      The Student may look dumb but in the video (which is where the facts are) he spoke very well,…. clear and with purpose! It was his Teacher that talked, acted and whose behavior was moronic! You don’t see a picture of the Teacher. However, if looks matched to Ebonics that were vomitting from her big fat mouth, I can imagine an appropriate image of what she MIGHT look like!

      • firefight

        Eric,
        What? Did you say “ebonics?” Am I to assume that this teacher is a person of color? Could this be the reason her face wasn’t shown in the video? The plot surely thickens. Does seem to me that many personal as well as government inspired agendas are creeping into our eduction process. Me thinks we need another fumigation bug bomb here. Perhaps Orkin for some rodent control.

        “Am I to assume that this teacher is a person of color? Could this be the reason her face wasn’t shown in the video?”

        No need to assume anything…she IS a person of color….. and yes Ebonics was what she was speaking. …and we wonder why the educational system is in the horrible state it is in……Wonder no more…..

        Robert Smith ,
        Personally dont have a problem with the young man attempting to change the system..the difference is…he is doing so through the system…and not in the actual classroom.

        The teacher in the above mentioned case…was using her authority as a teacher to promote her personal views on the students and refusing to allow any debate on the issue. Her attitude was…this is my opinion…and if you disagree with me, there will be consequences. That is not debate…that is bullying and an abuse of her authority as a teacher.
        In order to have a debate (which is what was supposed to be happening in the classroom)…there must be more than one solitary view…that is the nature of debate. If everyone has the same opinion…there can be no debte…because there is nothing to… debate.

        from Wikipedia:

        Debate is contention in argument; dispute, controversy; discussion; esp. the discussion of questions of public interest in Parliament or in any assembly.[1] Debating is carried out in many assemblies of various types to discuss matters and to make resolutions about action to be taken, often by a vote. Deliberative bodies such as parliaments, legislative assemblies, and meetings of all sorts engage in debates. In particular, in parliamentary democracies a legislature debates and decides on new laws. Formal debates between candidates for elected office, such as the leaders debates and the U.S. presidential election debates, are sometimes held in democracies. Debating is also carried out for educational and recreational purposes, usually associated with educational establishments. The major goal of the study of debate as a method or art is to develop the ability to debate rationally from either position with equal ease. Debate is a method of interactive and representational argument. Debate is a broader form of argument than deductive reasoning, which only examines whether a conclusion is a consequence of premisses, and factual argument, which only examines what is or isn’t the case, or rhetoric which is a technique of persuasion. Though logical consistency, factual accuracy and some degree of emotional appeal to the audience are important elements of the art of persuasion, in debating, one side often prevails over the other side by presenting a superior “context” and/or framework of the issue, which is far more subtle and strategic. The outcome of a debate depends upon consensus or some formal way of reaching a resolution, rather than the objective facts as such. In a formal debating contest, there are rules for participants to discuss and decide on differences, within a framework defining how they will interact. Informal debate is a common occurrence, the quality and depth of a debate improves with knowledge and skill of its participants as debaters. The outcome of a contest may be decided by audience vote, by judges, or by some combination of the two.

        Robert Smith,
        Richard Leakey, the Kenyan-born paleoanthropologist, PREDICTS that in the next 15 to 30 years the SKEPTICISM OVER EVOLUTION WILL SOON BE HISTORY, because he EXPECTS “SCIENTIFIC” discoveries will convince “even the skeptics” to accept it.

        What it tell you, Robert? It tells, that scientists, till now, do not have any believable/credible/reliable evidences or facts which would support Darwinism.

        And the REAL PROBLEM for evolutionists is the damned FACT that they have NONE BELIEVABLE/CREDIBLE/ RELIABLE FACT. NONE, NOT ONE.

        Evolution is not a science and never was. It does not have any scientific or historical support. (NO ONE have ever witnessed every single phase/step/period of any living thing)
        Evolution is a theory, which became belief/religion.

        EVOLUTION is man’s preposition. It means, that man decides what the “truth” is.
        CREATION is God’s preposition, which He lays in His Biblical Revelation. Condition of His preposition is the Absolute Truth.
        Evolutionists’ truth is not God’s Truth. (Your truth is not mine truth)

        EVOLUTIONISTS claim that Bible is wrong. It’s their position.
        CREATIONISTS claim that Bible is God’s revelation/disclosure to men. It’s their position. And NONE science yet could disapprove/refute God’s TRUTH, but only proved IT.

        Robert Smith, The purpose of scientists is not to “brainwash the masses”. Their purpose is to answer the questions with the FACTS of How, What, Why and When things occur or don’t occur. Why day comes night and Why year has 365 days? Why leaves are green? How does electricity runs to your house?…What happens when you die?

        Robert Smith, I see, you became a Kenyan in 2008! Yeah!!!!!

    • firefight

      I totally agree……..but doubt that will happen. The school system doesn’t want a wrongful termination suit. That would be the teacher’s right and she would most likely pursue it with the help of some well meaning leftist lawyers looking for some free advertising.

  • Ernest P. Hayes

    this idiot and the Supt should both be fired and barred from ever teaching, but then they would be on food stamps

    • Vigilant

      If you heard this Teacher on the video where she was “Busted”, you would KNOW this is not an educated woman. In fact, she sounded very much like she was speaking Ebonic! She is certainly MUCH less intelligent than MOST of the Students she claims to be teaching, or in her case, intimidating and INDOCTRINATING! This type of CRAP is going on in Public Schools ALL across America! It’s SHAMEFUL that this happened, it’s EVEN MORE SHAMEFUL that She wasn’t fired and WILL BE PERMITTED TO CONTINUE WITH THIS TYPE OF TOTALLY INAPPROPRIATE BEHAVIOR!

    In spite of this we may take heart, Remember Wisconsin ! It seems very appropriate that the first State to allow Public Sector Unions is also the first to begin to rein them in. If we can do something as simple as eliminating Tenure, we will see dramatic results in just a few years. We will, once again, regain our top standing in the Academic World !

    • Vigilant

      While you are right concerning the tenure bit, we’d have to go a lot farther down the road to cure the teacher problem. They’re all cranked out of the universities as obedient Marxists. Until we eradicate the presence of socialist profs from the colleges, we will continue to experience the hordes of under-educated idiots programming our children.

      • firefight

        I have a very good friend who is a teacher in our middle school system. The interesting part is that she comes from South Korea and in our many conversations, she has demonstrated that she knows more about our Constitution and Bill of Rights than any American I have had the same discussions wish. Are they teaching this in the schools of Korea? No, she has taken the time to learn this for herself by reading all of the foundation documents and doing her own research. She has come to understand and appreciate what we have from these documents and knows first hand what a country can be like without them. You should hear her talk about some of the kids and how their parents support stupidity. She doesn’t cut them any slack when she tells them they should spend some time in the country she came from.

        I served in Nam with a young man like your friend. He, and his extended family had escaped from Turkey. At the time he was serving, putting his like at rise, he wasn’t yet even a citizen! I asked him why, his description of how people viewed our country made me swell with pride. When I later heard Reagans ” Shining city on a hill ” I remembered that day in Nam!
        As with your friend, over time we talked about this Country often. I recieved ‘A’s in History and his knowledge made me feel like I haden’t gotten out of Kindergarden yet ! It was a humbling and ultimately rewarding friendship ! I corrected the problem when I got home!

      She got her job back….another example of union control of our schools. No union, she is out of there. Supremes today swatted SEIU in California case…..can no longer take extra fees for politics out of union dues for political purposes without the members permission/agreement. Big hole in SEIU’s Marxist political efforts, nationwide. Less money for BHuseeinO’s remaining champagne till Nov.
      If BHO wasn’t NOW, by his own choice, ignorant that it was, all tied up with F&F, he would have had a NC right after the supremes decision, giving SEIU an Executive Order allowing them to continue stealing members dues by getting Holder not to prosecute them if they do.
      We are slowly getting public unions out of our business, state by state (even Calif. county’s, now)…..when that process is finished…..the same will happen for our schools. They already have little or no say here in Florida….what few of them are left. AFT…NEA….next!!!!

  • Bev

    There’s a reason this woman was in an Alternative to Suspension classroom – because she is a crappy teacher and no one else would take the job. School districts have a way of eating their young. I wonder though where this woman got her teaching certification.

    You would think that with the record number of people looking for work they could’ve found someone else. It’s my bet there was a union rep behind the decision to keep her.

  • Big Woody

    I notice there is no mention that the school is in N. Rowan County N.C. Are we afraid of a backlash that might cause the school administration their jobs? All people involved have names and those names should be published so the voters that pay their wages and put them into office can reconsider who they vote for next election. The only way to fight these idiots is to single them out for their dastardly deeds.

      BTW, Judge John E. Jones III, a conservative Republican appointed in 2002 by George W. Bush was the one who decided the case.

        Since there is no separation of church and state, the school can teach intelligent design. So what if the judge had a “D” behind their name and was appointed by Clinton, would you emphasize who appointed him, hmmm? FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

    there is so much hate in this country and disrespect for the President it is disgraceful. The right wing (liberal fiscals and Fascists) are displaying such anti American behavior it is deplorable. It seems the ultra wealthy and ‘pretend to be christians”, who claim to be patriots are exactly the opposite. America is supposed to be one for and and christians are supposed to help those who are suffering, not keep them down, as the Republican establishment continues to do. Its horrific, and again especially the disrespect to the office of the President. WAKE UP AMERICA….the Democratic party, not the liberal party, are not interested in banning guns, they want them safe, not here to make abortions a free for all, they understand no one is pro abortion…its about choice, and not a group of men making decisions for women.

      Nancy says, “The right wing (liberal fiscals and Fascists) are displaying such anti American behavior.”

      You don’t have a clue about “American behavior.” Take a course in American history, read the Declaration and the Constitution, as well as the Federalist Papers, before you decide which behavior is “American.”

      No one can take you seriously when you call Conservatives “liberal fiscals.” That term applies to the tax and spend leftists, my dear, NOT to the right wing. Moreover, fascism has always been in bed with the left, not the right as you have been so programmed to believe.

      If you are not a Christian, as I’m not. And you wish to denigrate them, which I definately DO NOT, you might at least read the Book upon which they base their beliefs, the Bible ! Were you to do that you would find that the scriptural mandate for the care of the needy falls mainly to us as individules and to the Church as a whole. It’s primary recipients were ” Widows and Orphans “, no mention of any ablebodied persons. In the case of the Samaritan, it was to be a temporary hand-up not a lifetime of hand-outs. It was also very clearly stated that it should involve NO GOVERNMENT , ” My Kingdom is NO part of this world “

    wait a gosh darn minute since when did the united states become communist when we as american people can’t say that any president is not a good president thats our god given american right of freedom of speech but when it causes undo harm on someone else then it should be stopped. like case in point matthew shepard when he was killed by those two boys because he was gay and left to die hanging on a fence in the middle of nowhere. at his funeral we had out of state HATE MONGERS protesting at his funeral which was at a church. the HATE MONGERS and the TWO BOYS that killed matthew shepard ALSO killed matthew shepards family with there words and actions. on abortion if a womens RAPED then SHE should be able to decide if SHE wants to carry the baby to term ,give it up for adoption, keep the baby, have an abortion (if said WOMENS having medicial problems that could kill HER if SHE carried the baby to term it is HER choice not the governments choice or the american peoples choice thats against abortion but HER CHOICE no one elses..I AM NEITHER RIGHT WING OR LEFT WING BUT IF WE CAN’T SAY WE DON’T LIKE THE PRESIDENT OR WHAT HE STANDS FOR, WHAT HE HASN’T DONE.THEN THATS NOT FREEDOM OF SPEECH AND (THE AMERICAN BILL OF RIGHTS IS JUST TOILET PAPER WORTHLESS WORDS)

    • firefight

      WOW, Peggy Ann, more fuel for the fire. How about those ignorant morons that have been showing up at the grave side services of our departed warriors and displaying their disrespect for our soldiers by calling them murderers, killers and all sorts of disrespectful names? Is this what freedom of speech has come to? Do they have the right to dishonor our fallen warriors with such behavior? Why does our government and our citizens choose to allow this kind of “freedom of speech” and then allow a teacher to tell a kid he could be arrested for merely asking a question about the president? A question with an answer that is answered in a book that he, the president himself, claims to have written. Seems to me this is another job for Orkin. Too many RAT infestations.

  • r.p.

    Boy!! You guys sure zeroed in on Mr. Smith like a bunch of vultures. It seems all he did was bring up some facts in support of the teacher’s claims. Doesn’t seem off-track to me. The teacher could have presented the class with a civics lesson by asking the class to determine what parts of the Constitution were being violated when and if any arrests were being made for disrespecting the office of the president. Instead she chose to bully the student for his remarks. Not exactly what a teacher should be doing.

    • Vigilant

      We “zeroed in on Mr. Smith like a bunch of vultures. It seems all he did was bring up some facts in support of the teacher’s claims.”

      • Vigilant

        I stand corrected. My apologies.

      • r.p.

        No apology is necessary. What’s a forum for, without a good argument? The teacher did pass up an excellent opportunity to teach instead of trashing the opposition. She should have been required to recertify her credentials.

    • Renée

      Well Smash 44, just because she’s black and a woman doesn’t mean she is uneducated, that was uncalled for. She should just be judged by the content of her statement and nothing more. Any good teacher, had they not known the “correct” answer should have come back to the subject when they did know the answer. She should have been honest and just said, “I really don’t know how to respond to that right now, but I will find the answer and get back to you.” In my opinion, any question is a good question as it means the student is actually trying to think. I understand what you were trying to say but we should leave race, and gender out of the mix. There are all races of male teachers as well that do idiotic things. However, at the end of the day her response was totally inappropriate and she should have received a heavier discipline. As a parent I would be on that school for allowing this to continue.

      • John L Sprague

        Well, guess you missed it……since BHuseinO arrived, to solve our Race problem……what he has been doing since has created the divide in our country since the founding. It wasn’t all about race before he arrived………you would have to be blind not to realize that today…it is all about “nothing but race”……HIS. It started for me when his DOJ would not prosecute voter intimidation in Texas. (Black NPP, with clubs, preventing white people from voting…..ON CAMERA WITH AUDIO!!!). Then…..Holder says, publicly, he will not investigate/prosecute…..IGNORE the obvious breaking of federal law!!!
        Now….almost weekly, we get more and more details of similar disregard for the law by the DOJ…….DOMA……on and on……A billion tax payer dollars to the Kenyan govt.?????!!!!! Anyone know about that……..look it up……our reps over there say they don’t have enough people to spend the money……..Sorry…have to leave…..big sale in town on guns and ammo….gonna be a long line….get there early.

        • Renée

          I do understand what you are saying about race however, I choose not to play the same game he has been playing. There are many people of color that don’t agree with him and I will stand with them so I refuse to play the race game with anyone regardless of the fact that Mr. B.O. started down that road. I know what he stands for and I don’t stand anywhere near that so why would I allow myself to punish EVERYONE because of his lack of tact or morals. I disagree with everyone that agrees with him and not all of them are of color. I have “friends” that totally oppose this man and his lack of values and they are of color, very well educated and wonderful people. I hope you can understand that those that agree with him are confused and many are white, hispanic, asian, etc… Do you see what I mean? People are people to me, the content of their heart is what is judged, not the color of their skin…at least that is the way it is “SUPPOSED” to be.

          The comment I made, after listening to her, still stands. All I meant by that was to put her in a category labeling ALL people was wrong. Yes, she is black and yes she is a woman and yes she sounds uneducated but not all women that are black are uneducated and act as this one did. Yes, she sounded like a moron BUT, she should be judged by her remarks not the color of her skin or her gender. THAT is what I meant by my statement in response to someone that made a comment that she said those things because she was a woman and black. I made another statement afterwards saying that I have female, black, educated friends that can’t stand Mr. B.O. and I’m standing in defense of them. I hope you understand where I’m going with this.

            When I was in high school 40 years ago, I wrote a paper for a very nice humanities teacher about the firing of Angela Davis at Stanford. The paper came back with lots of red ink, remarks from the teacher about the nature of the Communist conspiracy. Who knew she was something like a Bircher? It takes all kinds.

          • Renée

            I guess I just walk in a different group of people than some others. One of my husband’s closest friends is totally anti-B.O. I believe it would be called a “Christian”. Anyone that “really” knows Jesus, doesn’t stand along side what B.O. stands for. Their eyes have not been blinded to the truth. It breaks my heart that we are moving further and further from what Christ came for and to put people down, no matter how ignorant they are instead of praying for them is just wrong and just because B.O. started it all up again, means we need to be praying more for him than ever before, as well as all those that make him their god.

          • Jeff

            Renee:

            What you say can be interpreted in at least 2 different ways since you don’t say what it is you think Obama is doing Jesus would disapprove of. A) Jesus would not like the drone strikes and the continuation of the Bush policies or B) Jesus would not like Obama saying he thinks the wealthiest should pay a bit more in taxes.

            Usually when someone says he’s a Christian and disapproves of all things liberal, I take it with a huge grain of salt. Some of the least “Christian” things come out of the mouths of so-called diehard “Christians.” Do you really think if Jesus came back he’d be a Republican? Maybe he’d run Bain Capital or a foreclosure mill. When did Christians get so cozy with business anyway? Didn’t there used to be a real tension between people who did things for others or for God and those who just did things for money? Suddenly, since the Republicans have designated themselves the “God Party,” naked greed has become synonymous with religion. I just don’t see it and I laugh when I hear the term “Christian Conservative.”

          • Renée

            When I vote I vote for who I think is the best candidate. I have to say that I did not or would not vote for B.O. But I am praying that God will change his heart as all the other people that are running for office or are in office. There is nothing but greed and hate and makes me sick to my stomach.
            What I feel about what Jesus would think is that He wouldn’t approve of most things that are going on right now, ALL over the world, with all of our leaders. I don’t think that Jesus would be a Dem or a Repub. He stood for a lot of different things that these parties don’t. All I want people to do, regardless of who they are is to acknowledge that when ever they put anything or anyone above God, that person or thing has become their god. No man/woman is worthy of worship. People don’t understand that the choices they are making have turned our world into a terrible place regardless of the political party they stand for.
            I never used the term Christian conservative though I fear God and believe what is written in the bible as truth. Jesus came to heal the sick, make the blind to see, bring salvation to the lost, He didn’t come so people could fight and argue over politics. I dislike politics to be honest with you because all it does is cause people to hate one another if they don’t agree with what the other person says or does. Enough is enough!

            That’s fine but the bottom line is still Obama or Romney.

    Wow, what an explosion over distractions today. I thought the article was about the punishment of the teacher. Does it fit the crime? I believe it does. Corrective discipline of teachers (doctors, lawyers, all workers) occur all the time. And this is not the end of it for this teacher. She will ( I hope at least) continue to be observed, evaluated, and professionally developed. If she doesn’t meet professional standards within a reasonable amount of time, then she should be terminated for cause.

      I’m sorry sir, but that is just a ridiculous statement ! This Teacher (?), had the opportunity of a lifetime! Young people willing, even eager to talk about our Government, instead of Justine or Gaga. She could have encouraged a lively debate about how the Constitution affected them, individualy, and this country as a whole !
      Her rabid support of Obama, caused her, instead, to teach them that it’s acceptable to excuse current bad behavior with past bad behavior ! She took a Golden opportunity and turned it into feces.
      She should be prohibited from even cleaning a school, much less teaching (?) in one!

      • 45caliber

        Ted:

        I fully agree with you. School had definately gone downhill from when I was in school. We had a Communist professor when I was in college; he would simply ask questions in class to get dialog started that might convince people that Communism wasn’t all that bad … and he was fired for it. Now he doesn’t even have to pretend!

      • DavidL

        I absolutely agree with your assessment, Ted. Her partisanship interfered and her behavior was professionally unethical. I don’t share your view of the punishment, however. What the school system has done so far “fits the crime.” I can tell you from over thirty years of classroom experience, in high school and in college, that these biased and unfair statements occur all the time in our classrooms and they come from both the left and the right. If we over-punish each and ever time, instead of recognize and constructively correct the unfair performance, we’d empty the schools.

      • 45caliber

        David:

        Considering the quality of many of our teachers, emptying the school of them isn’t necessarily a bad idea. They can always hire more good ones, while the bad ones can get jobs at places like McD’s.

    • Vigilant

      “She will ( I hope at least) continue to be observed, evaluated, and professionally developed.”

      How ’bout sending her back to do some home study of civics, history and the founding of our nation? Definitely NOT to a university…and keep her away from the “historyy” written by Howard Zinn.

      • 45caliber

        Vigilant:

        Civics???? My God! Are you a heretic? Civics was banned years ago! It made students think too much – and it conflicted with PC by telling them they had these privileges and duties as citizens of the US. Further, the PC people might not be able to tell them to shut up since the students might assume they have the duty to NOT shut up when told! After all, PC is far more important than some freedom that the student might assume he has from what the law says.

    Ted, excerpt from your entry: “You might at least read the Book upon which they base their beliefs, the Bible! Were you to do that you would find that the scriptural mandate for the care of the needy falls mainly to us as individuals [CHRISTIANS]and to the Church [OUT CALLED ONES] as a whole. It’s primary recipients were ” Widows and Orphans “, no mention of any able-bodied persons. In the case of the Samaritan, it was to be a temporary hand-up not a lifetime of hand-outs. It was also very clearly stated that it should involve NO GOVERNMENT, ” My Kingdom is NO part of this world “

    I like what you said but don’t understand some of it. Christians were helping Christians and what it amounted to was poor helping the poor. It was not rich vs. poor thing. Covetness was frowned upon as it should be.

    My Kingdom is not of this world either. As a Christ follower I believe the Bible when it says the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, while to Christ-followers it is the power of God. Jesus is the doorway to Heaven.

    I make no judgement on the teacher she is to be pitied. I personally do not believe public employees should be allowed to unionize. They are protected under Civil Service laws.

  • Nancy in Nebraska

  • chuckb

    we can thank affirmative action for people like tanya dixon neely. this has opened the door to ignorance. the bolsheviks have been instrumental in the downfall of our teaching system working thru the teachers union, and they protect people like neely with tenure,

    since the sixties when most of these pseudo intellectuals were gathering in the parks and dreaming about a euphoric world in their drug induced minds, where they could learn as they wanted and communize their lives in communes. these people were the start of our problems. their offspring following in their parents footsteps have completely captured the public school system. the nea is the queen and the local teachers unions are the pawns.

    until we shut the school unions down, don’t expect any improvement. until the teachers are tested for their knowledge, you will continue to have more and more like neely.

  • Matthew

    I just wonder what is happening in this country on a deeper level. Are we as Americans so disatisfied with our own selves and lives that we need to hurt others to build up our own self worth? As a people, we seem to have lost any sense of cohesion and direction. This is not the country that I knew as a child growing up in the 60′s and 70′s. Back then,
    there may have been disagreement on political matters within our nation but the overall feeling was one of a nation always trying to improve and learn from its mistakes. I do not sense that now at all. “It is my way or the highway”, and no room for opposing thought or opinion. “I am going to get what’s mine and get out of my way while I’m doing so”

    I hope (and yes I pray) that we as Americans can get back to a level where we do what is right and not cling to thought where its me against them. I will probably get someone personally attack me for saying this next statement, but President Obama is not keeping his promise to be better, to be different, to be a healer. If anything, he has taken this country down even more than his predecessor. His administration is taking this country to a level where there seems to be no hope, there only seems to be excitement in those that still believe in him when they are attacking any opposition or when evoking George Bush’s name and it has become an almost joke to “blame Bush”, but many truly still do that. The teacher in question is one example and I fear she is unmoveable in her opinion, I fear she will cling to the same beliefs the rest of her life with no chance of ever listening to any other views. And she is trying to teach her “own belief’s” to her students.
    It is not the right way or the American way. One example of a broken education system.

    America has made mistakes in the past, but can we move on and try to get along at least enough to make this a country moving forward in a positive direction? Or are we going to continue on this obvious decline?

    • John L Sprague

      OK. Matt…..guess you missed it. Since BHusseinO got the job, it has become all about RACE.

Who surrounds him….what is his DOJ doing??? No charges when blacks (new black panthers party) prevent white voters from voting in Texas…clear violation of the VRA and Fed. law???
      Nice talk…..don’t work anymore……you don’t have to convince us (you and me) …it is them…..as you said with the non-teacher….guarded by the union….pushing her/his garbage on innocent white kids in that class room. Oh….wow is me…..guess ya missed that part. Good luck.

      Couldn’t be 100% eddie, otherwise, no one, would be responding to this, your post…have a nice weekend.

  • OldbutnotadumbI will be studing the Constitass 2012

    Its just Another Example to show that our So Called”Public-Schools”are going down the toilet .That teacher(if you want to call her that.)has no right being in a class room teaching young kids.I think Teachers are to be given stress tests ..the person or,persons that hired some one like her should have to answer to their local school board!! Home schooling is so much better if you can do it.

  • http://yahoo.com Dan Holmes

    Don’t forget the teachers making all those little kids sing and dance.to praise the anointed one. Brainwashing at such a young age is how these scum bags try to turn our kids into good little marxists. Shoving down their throats the lie that homosexuals are normal and good for society.THANK GOD FOR WISCONSIN! The rein of liberal unions is coming to an end!

  • Oldbutnotadumbbutt2012

    A good addition to what I stated Dan Holmes!!!!

    In response to Vigilante

    When I first came to the US I was given a copy of Peoples History Of America, and read it avidly. It showed me that ever since the first Europeans came here, the Establishment has usurped its power over and over again, and in pursuit of profit for the few, has ridden roughshod over the population’s rights, has reneged on most of it’s agreements and lied consistently over it’s actions.

    No matter what your personal belief or political persuasion is, there is no way one can condone that attitude. The Government is there for OUR benefit, not their’s. Even today that attitude is still evident in the behaviour of most of our government officials and political representatives and ought to be eliminated. How one does that if most of the population condone and accept it I do not know.

  • middleman @2012

    Vote them all out of office,that would be one way of cleaning this mess up!!!!

    • John L Sprague

      Naaww…..Just get rid of Hussein and Holder: get the Senate, must be by one vote R 51 D 47 I 2…..and we are home free. Even with Hillary as POTUS….no Mitt. The whole government will change back to something recognizable. Our problem is not RINO’s and Lib. D’s….it is Marxists.

      • Jeff

        I thought under the new McConnell Rule, you needed 60 votes to pass anything. The Senate is already so weighted to the Republicans in terms of population that they effectively have a veto even with a straight majority vote. If you’re a resident of Wyoming, you have something like 40 times the representation in the Senate of a Californian. And then you add in the fillibuster, it’s a miracle the Democrats ever get anything passed.

        • John L Sprague

          Jeff…..You missed the point. If we get to 51 in the Senate…..we will control the agenda and Chairmanships. 60/40 requirement is apparently here to stay..been that way quite some time. We get the Senate away from the Dem’s….no change in that aspect of our dysfunctional Senate.
          We control the House because of our majority. Same applies in the Senate. The only time we see anything close to passing anything in the Senate….the bill has to be Apolitical. Otherwise..FORGETABOUTIT!! Again….wasn’t talking about 60/40 or filibuster. Would have to get the WH to fix those problems. Never happen as long as Hussein is around.

        • John L Sprague

          One other thingy Jeff…..assuming you are from Ca., might consider moving here to Fl., we have one D and one R for our Senators. In Nov. probably going to 2 R’s. Lots of Ca. types moving to Fl., along with hundreds of businesses. Fleeing a sinking ship?? Dunno, expect so, gonna get much worse out there on the Left coast with that Governor. We have a super R Gov. here…balanced budget… unemployment going down….lots of new businesses…Right to Work state…little or no unions private sector…..public sector unions do what Wi. forced their PS unions to do, but, long ago. Those cost are a killer in Ca. not in Fl. and most states run by R’s in their “mansions” and state houses.
          Ca. used to be the front-runner of things to come….now…..bringing up the rear!!! Sorry bout dat!!

          • Jeff

            I do like that Governor you’ve got. Who’s next? Bernie Madoff? Rick Scott may be the best political advertising Obama has got!

          • John L Sprague

            That’s OK Jeff….we all have our opinions and I guess, not sure, you know about those!!
            Scott is real popular in our area (NW Fl.), this is a Military area…and…have to say this…home of the Blue’s (Blue Angels) that is the US Navy’s precision flight demonstration team….also sure you wouldn’t know anything about that kind of activity….especially in Ca. Do they still prevent military recruiters from walking the streets in daylight there??
            No…seriously…Florida is a lot like Wisconsin, and other R managed states these days. Making a big comeback despite the road blocks put in front of us by Hussein in DC.
            Best part of AZ immigration law was upheld today 5 to 3 in the SCOTUS. Know that hurts ya!!! But that is nothing compared to how upset you will be when Obamacare goes down on Thursday. You will need to go somewhere peaceful till ya get over it. We have 100 miles of snow white sandy beaches just south of me….OH, and we don’t charge to use them…amazing isn’t it. 67 counties in the state of Fl., the one I and mine live in is Nr. 1 or 2 in education achievement for the state every year. Our kids learn under some of the toughest National Standards in the country. Just a great place to raise the next generation of proud, patriotic Americans. Ya ought to visit, take a break…rest a spell. Y’all come!!! Jack

          • Jeff

            Obamacare, as you call it, was just a gift to the insurance industry. If it goes down at the hands of the court that brought you the W administration and Citizens United, sobeit. It will lead to single payer eventually. Somehow, other countries achieve better results in public health spending half what we do. People will eventually realize there’s a better way and we don’t have to leave people uninsured or subject to the whims of insurers in it only to make money.

          • John L Sprague

            Gosh Jeff…..So much wrong with your thinking, maybe you’re just not paying attention to the news….by the way, everyone knows you can’t get any real news on MSNBC, ya might have to look around a bit.
            Obama, Reid and Pelosi OWN the ACA. That is why Hussein can give waivers to his union friends, and others…ya know, his campaign donor’s etc…long list now. If the mandate falls the funding goes away, can’t work. If he gives a few more waivers….nobody left to pay for it.
            31 or more states will not do the Medicade deal, they can’t afford it, even the R states that have balanced budgets and improving financials, against all odds in the DC extended recession.
            Truth is, whatever the SCOTUS does Thursday….(betting is that at least the Mandate is unconstitutional)….If we get the Senate in Nov….don’t need the WH, nice to have but not critical to repeal Obamacare. House numbers….got enough…..get majority in Senate…(already have a number of D Senators abandoned the party’s leader on this and a whole host of other policies of his). Very good chance could override his veto…which he certainly would try.
            Best case scenario is that we get the Senate and the WH….that is what wold be best of all American citizens…….not so great for anti-Americans and to a great extent hyphenated Americans.

          • Jeff

            We shall see. I don’t think Romney will be so easy to swallow in areas of the country that believe it’s not a perversion for workers to organize and earn a living wage. Romney did business with Michael Milliken and probably with Rick Scott as well, but you won’t see Romney within 500 miles of Scott. What have YOU done today to make sure the minorities can’t vote in Florida?

          • John L Sprague

            Man, amazing, you running a Libertard focus group out there?? See your points on the LSM..as I go by heading to FOXNews!!
            Here in Florida, a Right to Work state, where unions, public and private are NOT unwelcome, just they can’t force members to join to get the job, AND as just happened in California SCOTUS stopped SEIU from taking more money, over the members objection, to support Hussein. That never happened here….so, if anything, both types of unions are held in a much more positive light. Unions here, both types, spend their members dues helping the member not the Libertards in DC. Big difference of Dem. controlled states, which by the way, are all in some form or another headed to or are in bankruptcy mainly due to the high cost of mandatory PUBLIC union contract expenses. TODAY…..now it is Atlanta, GA., Birmingham, AL. before them and many others around the country, even here in the SE….all big cities, with Dem’s as Mayors. States will have to bail them out. Just like we will have to bail out the Dem’s in California, Oregon and Washington….probably next year.
            As for Scott, our wonderful conservative, Republican (super star) Gov., he promised us, before the election, that he would try to improve LEGAL voting here. No more Bush v Gore this time. He has already (before the DOJ and Holder/Hussein sued to try to stop him…ala AZ) removed just about all (200K of them) the illegal voters of that earlier time, ya know, the Peter Pans, Mickey Mouses, dead and residents of other states. So, the D’s won’t, even as hard as DOJ/DHS is trying, have those illegal votes in their collumn this time.
            Got my mailer on our Aug. and Nov voting skeds the other day…..it says, plainly, and in English only……you have to be a registered voter in the county you are voting in, prove this with an ID….photo, address…etc……BUT if you can’t (we know who can’t) you can vote anyway…..it will be a provisional vote…..checked out and counted if legal. More than one way to skin a cat…so to say. Just like Sheriff Joe is doing in AZ over the objections/interference of DOJ/DHS and White House. This is what Americans do who take an oath of office (as I did once upon a time) to protect and defend these United States and the Constitution.

          • Jeff

            You are truly disturbed. Peter Pan and Mickey Mouse may have signed petitions, but they have not voted. If a signature collector gets paid by the signature and he turns in pages of fictitious names, Babe Ruth, etc., he is defrauding whoever he is collecting for. But none of these people will vote!!

            The Speaker of the Pennsylvania Assembly just let the cat out of the bag. All these voter suppression laws are just a means for Romney to have a shot at winning states like Pennsylvania. Voter fraud is a joke just like the poll taxes and literacy tests in the old days you so want to bring back.

          • John L Sprague

            OK…guess that is it. Disturbed!!?? I really tried to read your posts, looking for reasonable content and merit…admit there was some in them along the way. But this last one, crossed the line. It reminded me, almost word for word expressed during multiple pressers here in Florida, during our Stand Your Ground controversy, by Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson. From afar, the same “stuff”, being kind, using that term, came to us from Pelosi and Waters (couple of your favorites, I assume), those from California and DC when made. Guess the Queen got stuck in DC, what with no US Air Force jets to commandeer any more!!!
            I would/can, make a pretty good case, cause it is the truth here in Florida, that our laws protect all voters, even those with no ID. But I won’t, obviously, now…..a waste of both of our time. I have a number of smart Democrat friends. They agree with me that most Democrats are not democratic…..as they, erroneously call themselves. The one thing I and they rely upon is our feeling that there are still (not enough, in many cities) enough AMERICANS left, who are legally registered to vote, all over this country, who will vote…know what the word means, and can make a good choice come November. We don’t think it will even be close. Have ya noticed what is going on in DC these days??? All really bad for Hussein. Gonna get much worse, before it is all over. Remember this post on Nov. 7th. Will be the same outcome the Libertards called the other way on the last day in Wisconsin. Same for our wave in 2010.
            Did ya see the Supreme’s went against the Dem’s in Montana?? Today. Constitutional for Corporations to donate, just a confirmation of their earlier decision which was ignored by those Hussein supporters.
            Anyway….as indicated earlier in this post….when you quote, even by mistake, a diatribe used over and over by Al and Jesse….there is no hope for you. This is my judgement at this time, same process I have used for coming on 70 years now…Judged lots of people, of all kinds, here in the US and many places around the world….always came out good for me and mine.
            So, so long, “friend”, have a good life. WARNING: Try to recognize a Marxist ideology, no matter who you are exposed to, before you agree with their policy. It is not what you think it is. They keep secrets from good Americans and everyone else….read your history….Marxists have killed 10s of millions of their own people in the last 100 years. We may have killed our own on occasion, the numbers pale in comparison to them, and most of our losses occurred while trying to protect our citizens, here at home, and abroad.

          • Jeff

            Read your diatribe, edit it, and see if it makes any sense.

  • GANGBUSTER @2012

    I’ll agree with you on that middleman!!!!!We should never allow our public servants to make a career out of Washington D.C.After about two terms,they should be told to leave!!!

  • Oldbutnotadumbutt@2012

    The kennedy’s,and mc cain !!! (just to name a few!!!!)

  • Middlemant@2012

    I don’t think you have worry about the Kennedy’s, any more,!!!We should have term limits on both houses of Congress!!!
