Year Three Week Two – The Plan’s First Trial

Year Three Week Two – The Plan’s First Trial “No plan survives contact with the enemy,” Helmuth von Moltke the Elder, German Field Marshal I think I scared myself last week when posited the difficulty of teaching a single subject across six grade levels much less five subject areas across said six grade levels. Oops. I feel like Year One had been somewhat torpedoed because … Continue reading Year Three Week Two – The Plan’s First Trial

The False Equivalencies Continues… Begins… Whatever…

The False Equivalencies Continues… Begins… Whatever… So, this showed up in my feed (“Obama Broke the Law First!)… My response: Yeah, the 2008 Obama campaign was late filing it’s paperwork, there were some donations over the legal $1,000 limit for individuals and they raised a huge amount, the largest amount of individual donations at the time, and so they were fined over $300,000. It was … Continue reading The False Equivalencies Continues… Begins… Whatever…

Year Three

Year Three Even though I’ve been running classrooms for 23-years, the challenge of beginning another school year is more than a little overwhelming. As if that weren’t enough, I also closed on my new condo on the first day of classes, so add moving and setting up a new home to the “beginning of the school year” challenges.

The Moving Process: Don’t Sleep on the Floor

The Moving Process: Don’t Sleep on the Floor I heard yesterday morning that the 70-something-year-old women I’m buying the condo from has moved all of her furniture out because we were supposed to close at the end of this week and is now sleeping on the floor.

Selling the False Trump Selfless Savior Narrative

Selling the False Trump Selfless Savior Narrative Found this in my feed, about how the Army screwed up at the end of the gulf war, stranding soldiers in the Middle East and how Trump arranged for their return at his expense, except for the cost of fuel. And as a result of that experience, former Private Sean Buller is loyal to Trump because Trump was … Continue reading Selling the False Trump Selfless Savior Narrative

You’re Not Winning If You Have to Lie to Make Your Point 🤥

You’re Not Winning If You Have to Lie to Make Your Point Oh look someone has discovered the power of Photoshop [yawn]. The image of Obama holding up a “Trump is my president” t-shirt went with the caption: “post this and watch all the liberals’ heads explode.” If 45 were at all a “normal” policy-wonk kind’a Republican, I could almost imagine Obama holding up the … Continue reading You’re Not Winning If You Have to Lie to Make Your Point 🤥

Blog Reunification/Relaunch as joebustillos.com I used to think that it was a problem that I could never narrow down my writing or my blog posts to one subject. I mean, I know that I cringe when the tech podcasters I follow venture into areas outside their expertise. Alas, having experimented with separating my many interests into separate blogs, I find treating these things as separate … Continue reading Blog Reunification/Relaunch as joebustillos.com

This Show Must Not Go On

This Show Must Not Go On Word have consequences and silence has meaning. We are better than what we have allowed or conspired to happen in our nation. If you are angered at that idea, screaming, “I didn’t do anything!” then you’ve proven my point. The hate driven divisive behavior from the “top” of our national culture needs to stop, like this newspaper, and work … Continue reading This Show Must Not Go On
