May 1

I think this article from Freedom Alliance sums up my feelings on the immigration protests quite nicely. Here is a portion of the article.....


Tom Kilgannon, President of Freedom Alliance agreed, "Politicians in Washington would have us believe that these folks are cuddly and loveable refugees who just want a fair shake at the American Dream. But their so-called 'May Day' actions show that they are little more than irresponsible opportunists and professional agitators who encourage children to play hooky; turn their backs on their employers; inflict damage on the economy; place added strain on law enforcement officers; cause problems for commuters; and hijack our National Anthem."

"Meantime on Monday, 150 million responsible Americans and legal-immigrant hopefuls, will go to work, send their children to school, obey the law, pursue the American dream legally and contribute to the well being of the economy and society. These individuals are working to keep America the greatest nation on earth while others are selfishly exploiting it for personal gain. They are demanding rights and conditions they are not even allowed by the Constitution in their own country."

Dougherty added, "And how does this so-called ‘Star-Spangled Banner,’ entitled "Nuestro Himno" (Our Anthem) promote unity? How does this help solve the debate over illegal immigration," noted Dougherty, "because that's what the issue is about – illegal immigration, not whether Americans do or do not want to close off immigration altogether, which most don't.

This whole thing is nuts! I am averaging 6 absences a period (and I only have 20 kids per class until I hit Theatre).

It will prove to be a most interesting day.

I spent three hours trying to drive into SF today. I was SO MAD.
