Was that narrated by Ralph Nader?

Anyhoo, now that it attempted to scare the pants off of us, what do we do about it?

My Wife is a Teacher -- High School History. The crap she puts up with from students (and other sources) does not equal the pay or many times the feeling of making a difference.

This is our future folks -- and if we keep dumping money elsewhere and have bogus policies/testing like "No Child Left a Dime", we will succumb to the greater divide of the Haves and Have Nots. This includes intelligence, training, and education.

My response: November is coming up. Research your views and vote on it. Write to your Federal, State, and Local Reps on your feelings. It's an election year -- if enough are heard, policies can change.

When we give up on the system, the system gives up on us.

You have to be a poor person in a poor country. Wait until the year 2030 and you will qualify.

I'm pretty sure by that laptops will evolve into something else and won't even cost $100
