Blind Drunk Justice, Episode 10

Sorry for the delay everyone, but among going out of town, Halloween, and watching some awesome, amazing football, this latest BDJ episode is getting to you a little late.  …In spite of having recorded it early.  But, as a special treat/annoyance, this episode features a scary Halloween remix of our theme music.  Hope you enjoy.  And, if you don’t, whatever, no one cares.

    tucker is my big hero. he gets top pussy. no way would this dude lick a stanky crotch.

  2. bl1y Says:

    Apparently you haven’t read his books. He’s probably hooked up with more ugly and fat girls than an entire college marching band.

  3. Larry Says:

    Well I agree he may not be the man with the greatest discretion in who he hooked up with, but I did read they serve the beer in hell book and there were a couple of really good stories…here’s one excerpt. I think his idea of a fat and ugly broad would be equivalent to what we would regard as a 7 1/2 out of 10. But here is a relevant example:

    [Say It, Don't Spray It]

    Now you tell me whether he is not a hero!

    You men disgusst me. I do NOT know why you glorify a jerk who objectifies women.

    Guy’s like you always tried to look up my dress when I was in 6th grade, and it sounds like you are still doing that. Shame on you jerks.

    You should respect women for there mind, not there bodies.

    Fooey on you men. I would never have sex with you.

    I think we need to take it one step further and require more intensive science/computer/programming classes in high school. American high schools are failing at preparing students for high-level thinking in the sciences and mathematics. There is a reason (I do not have the specific numbers in front of me) that our testing in these areas is terrible and it widens after elementary school. In this, we also need to be pumping money into higher education (particularly research institutions) and LINK these academics up with venture capitalists and other investors.

    At the same time I am still a supporter of the liberal arts education. It is necessary to progress beyond the lower echelons of almost any profession, but not everyone can be a lawyer, management consultant, etc. We actually need to be producing things and the lifeblood of this is our universities. But before we can see dividends on our investment in higher ed, we need to ensure that high school students are receiving an adequate education in the sciences and mathematics.

    I don’t think the problem is high school classes, there’s not a lot of fluff classes in high school. The trouble is, like you say, the intensity. It is nearly impossible to fire a teach these days. There was a story about a teacher who was banned from teaching for life in British public schools after repeated incompetence. He had been teaching for 13 years and was the head of his department. He was the first to ever get a lifetime ban, and only about a dozen or so had ever been given temporary bans.

    No doubt there are more than a dozen incompetent teachers in the whole UK. But, in every industry it is very difficult to get fired unless you do something hugely inappropriate. Simply turning in C- work week after week won’t get you fired. And, schools are particularly bad. I can understand why universities want tenure to protect the freedom of professors to teach unpopular positions (though really, schools are such PC freaks now that it’s not really necessary, especially for the 80-90% of professors in the liberal majority). But primary education? Fuck that and fuck the teacher’s unions.

  7. wlmingtonwave Says:

    Concerning teacher’s unions you have no idea. In my state, NJ, it is just out of control. I did a little research on some of my old high school teachers salaries online. One in particular, who I vividly remember watching Seinfeld, The Patriot, and Gladiator in class (this was an entrepreneurship class) was making 120k. Keep in mind, this includes an insane pension and great benefits. He was a nice guy, but he taught the class straight from the textbook. And the main problem is that everyone is in bed with each other. In my school district people get jobs, not because they are qualified, but because their father is a local judge or something. They keep bringing in alumni of the high school to teach, which just perpetuates the problem of mediocrity, because these people live in their little bubble and have no idea how fucked we are as a country.

    Teaching should certainly be based on results. These results should not be based on some silly state mandated test, but through observation from a (qualified) third party. You should get a warning with suggestions on what to do and if you fail to do it you should be fired.

    But maybe this is just more of a culture thing. As long as everything is “okay” and students are bringing guns into school or coming to school wasted, it is fine. As long as everyone’s job is safe and we can get our nice pension it is just peachy, because we’ll be in Florida in 20 years and then hey, its not our problem (and we won’t have to pay the high taxes either to fund the school systems).

    Of course, this also all goes back to the debate of the goals of an education. I read somewhere (some sort of psychology article) that something like 60% of people are not intelligent enough to think at the level of college work. But that is another argument altogether.

  8. bl1y Says:

    We had a huge problem here in Alabama, especially in the two-year college system. A lot of government employees were getting very cushy second jobs as administrators and whatnot. The guy who lead the effort to clean it up ran for governor in the Republican primaries, but the teachers’ union make a ton of secret contributions to his main opponent.

    Then, a couple weeks ago, they let it leak that they had funded the person who ultimately won the Republican nomination, which undercut a lot of his support giving the Democrat (and their first choice) a much better chance at winning.

    Pretty awesome strategy, but there’s no reason teachers should have so much power in government. I guess it’s because it’s politically unpopular to attack teachers, just like you can’t say any military program is wasteful.

  9. wlmingtonwave Says:

    Thats the problem. These people are getting multiple “jobs” through dubious connections and then drawing from multiple pensions. That is just a fucked system and the reason why most states are in horrible economic shape.

    I am not sure if it is just teachers (although they are a large part of them problem) or if it is the corrupt nature of local and state level politics. But you are right that it is unpopular to “attack” teachers in any way. I immediately thought of this:
    http://www.nytimes.com/2001/12/07/nyregion/anger-grows-in-middletown-over-teachers-strike.html

    which had a lot of people pissed off.

    Although I normally lean Democratic, Governor Chris Christie has done a great job and has tried to root out this shit that is so pervasive in the NJ school system. If this trend continues, I think the public school system is going to be relied on less and less and rightfully so with the misuse of funds.

    My policy for voting is that representatives don’t control what committees they get put on, have little control over the votes that come to the floor, and no control over new issues we will face while they’re in office, so I vote for people who I believe are intelligent, care about facts and reason, and aren’t trying to bamboozle me. If you can keep the car on the road, I trust you to drive us some place far better than the ditch everyone else would leave us in.

    And holy shit, I just finished reading that article. They were striking over having to pay a $250 annual fee for their health insurance?

    Jesus Fucking Christ! That’s what I had to pay PER MONTH for mine.
