Teachers pay or is there another answer

I was recently interviewing a local teacher, per say I was asking for his perception as to why there was a teacher shortage. He said "one of the reasons that people don't want to be a teacher was that the kids are atrocious". The other was money. He felt that he wasn't getting paid enough. I told him in a round about way about what I made and though he didn't say anything his smile told me he makes more than me.

I asked him also if he was saying the reason that there weren't more people entering the teaching fields was greed? He said "no".

HMMM. It would appear if the teachers don't know why there are fewer teachers, yet deep down in their hearts they do, don't they?

First of all as always I would be remiss if I didn't tell you, the root cause of the kids being atrocious. No prayer, no help from God. It is God that keeps people in line, but if you don't ask he won't help. You got to pray.

Second of all the reason money is needed is because you have to pay people past the threshold where the job becomes worth the trouble and stress, the 'ole' money answers all things, however there is only so far that people are going to be able to afford to pay. At some point, points of diminishing returns come into play where no matter how well educated the kids are when they get out of school the cost to a nation would have been so great as to be a straw, if you know what I mean, and a nation can't have that now can it? Of course the teachers would come back with the question, 'how much do we value our kids our future and our nation'(a guilt trip on us to assuage their-uh- 'greed')?

We are already paying our teachers more than anyone else in the world except maybe Switzerland. So that obviously isn't the answer.

We are at a stage where force doesn't work and money ain't working either so it will take an act of God to straighten this issue out. I suppose he could make it a catastrophe or we could just ask him to fix us. I am all in favor of the latter and so should the rest of you.

Caution: Another anti-Mob thought

I have been often asked "who do you think you are".

I belong to this category of people

Gen 3:15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

That's right. I am anti-Mob.

Caution this is an anti- Mob thought

My sister saays to me one day,

"I envy you Ron you always seem to be in the middle of things."

Want to know my secret people? Start fighting the Mob like me. I guarantee you it will put right in the middle of this same world of s--t that just keeps following me around.

My Comments are on the fritz now so....

Comment away people I just can't read them.

I used to think I was about half Irish

Until one day as we were sitting in grandma Bennetts living Room, Ma, Aunt Martha, me, and uncle Hal, Grandma drops a bomb and says we were English????? I am confused but here is a travel blog about Ireland. Pretty Country.

I want

Today I was at a customers house and while I was working he was telling me about building a new house and how he wanted a little closet with a urinal in it only so he could cure some of the complaints his wife made. You know the ol' toilet seat up one. So as we were joking around about this together we came up with; why not just make a man's shower with a urinal in it because.....what man gets out of the shower to take a leak anyway?

I am a worm-a-phobe

The worm

Is the devil a snake or a worm?

Gen 3:14 And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:

What crawls on it's belly and eats dirt all the days of it's life? You idiot deceived preachers-it is a worm. As for the MOB they are worshiping a worm. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Considered by most to be symbolic as the lowest form of life on Earth. I guess that makes all of them dirt eaters and lowlifes.

Brain slump

10 years ago American Engineers and Companies were granted 10,000 more patents than foreign companies. Now that is down to 4000.

A 2003 survey of math and science literacy compared 15 year old U.S. kids against young-uns from other industrialized nations and in math ours came in 24th tied with Latvia out of 28. In science 24th out of 40.

We spend 440 billion a year on school 2nd in the world per capita to Switzerland.

A national survey revealed that 38% of math teachers and 28% of science teachers in grades 7-12 lacked a college major or minor in either subject.

No Jesus no brains.
