Rant #2- The “Debate” between Evolution and Creation (sic)

Overhead at a High School Graduation The other night I was enjoying a rather pleasant, short, and uneventful high school graduation. The parents were tame as expected; they were respectful and applauded at the appropriate times. The ceremony stood in stark contrast against my previous 4 high school graduations in an urban charter school district. […]

No Need to Press the Elevator Button if it’s Already Fucking Pressed!

Fucking news flash! If the elevator button is already pressed, there is no…I repeat NO need to press it again. I watch someone do this at least once a day at my apartment complex. Next time I will say, “You know, the magical elevator elf will not bring you the elevator faster because you pressed […]

Okla Lawmakers: “Rape is the Will of God”

This article is from March 2017, but my wife just sent it to me. It sent me into full rage mode. I remember reading it a couple months ago, but I’m still as furious now as then. Oklahoma State Rep. George Faught argues that rape and incest are the will of God while defending anti-abortion legislation. […]

My Interpretation is the only Interpretation you need to when Interpreting

My Interpretation is the only Interpretation you need when Interpreting- says a 10th grade English teacher to his students when they’re reading a novel. This shithead seriously said that…throughout the year. I was tutoring a couple students in math last week when one student started talking about her least favorite teacher. First of all, this […]

The Harm of “Everyone Has a Right to Their Own Opinion”

“The greatest deception men suffer from is their own opinions” – Leonardo de Vinci Someone close to me has said on several occasions (usually when we are drinking), “but, Dude, everyone has a right to their own opinion.” Side note- I’ll write more about this and the mother-in-law in a later post. This guy is correct. […]

“But, Dude, You Must Believe in Something”

Update- 4/15/17  So, after a 4-hour conversation with my son’s classmate’s father I decided that I had to update this story from a couple weeks ago. Rather than enjoy my Spring Break alone, I had the pleasure of babysitting my 2 1/2 year old son and his classmate. Fortunately, his school/daycare closed for a week […]

“I like Obama, but…”

After months of refraining from joining in family discussions, my father-in-law finally decided to chime in. Joe said, “I like Obama, but he didn’t do anything except have a good (NCAA Tourney) bracket and invite basketball teams to the White House.” Joe claims to be a life-long Democrat, but, as I said to him, his […]

My First “ASS Burner!”

Congratulations to the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) sponsor at my high school…you’re my first Ass Burner. I’ve been sitting on this post for months and have finally built up the appropriate amount of rage! These gems adorn her classroom: The note reads “Alone in Christ my Hope is found.”  Somone please tell me what […]

A Creative Writer who Writes Creatively

I’m reading a student’s new psychoeducational report, and I come to the “teacher narratives” section. This kid’s Creative Writing I teacher actually wrote, and I quote…seriously…”He is a very creative writer. He enjoys writing creatively…” That’s all! That was her response when asked to describe the boy’s academic strengths. That’s a response from a 25-year veteran […]
