( I was going to post this response to straw on the Topix forum but I changed my mind and I will post it here instead. I don't want that forum to become what this forum has become, so here it is)
Blah, blah, freekin' blah.
The moment the word "education" comes up you go into your rant about vouchers, charter schools, teacher's union and an appointed BOE.It's just like the Abbott and Costello "Slowly I Turned" bit except instead of "Niagara Falls" the word that sets you off is "Education". Then you preach about how to fix everything with an appointed BOE, vouchers and charter schools.
This thread is about our superintendent in Middletown and block scheduling. If you have some local knowledge to add to the conversation, that would be great. But if all you want to do is have a political discussion so that you can ridicule and insult anyone that disagrees with you until they leave the forum I suggest you go back to NJO where you have perfected the technique to such a degree that everyone has left and we have come here to avoid you.You had your own forum and you could not get a single person to post on it, you were banned from the Delphi forum by the members because they could not stand you and you have driven everyone off the NJO Middletown forum by insulting everyone and then bragging about you ability to ignore the people you insulted.There has never been a thread like this one on NJO, ever. And the reason is because you are there and you hijack any discussion about education with your cockamamie, pie in the sky, "I know how to fix everything" BS. This is a local forum and this is a local discussion that could only take place in your absence.
This forum does not suit you. You can't delete and it is easy for people to ignore you. Now read the title of the thread again. Stay on topic or start a new thread about charter schools so that we can give you the amount of attention that you have earned and deserve .. none. Look around straw. The people who are here are the people who left NJO because of you. These are just some of the people that you bragged about silencing by insulting and ignoring. Eventually more will come here once they find out that you cannot dominate the forum with your political crap. Go back to NJO where you claim your superior intellect has silenced your detractors. Reign over the vacant kingdom you have created and brag to no one about how wonderful you are. In other words, Gd' nite straw.I want to apologize to anyone, other than straw, who has made it this far. Unfortunately straw is going to go out of his way to see that this forum does not succeed. He has stated on the NJO forum that Monday he is going to start copying dive's posts from NJO and posting them here. Whatever, I've had my say here. I don't want to drag this place down with forum drama.
Matter of fact. I will not post this on Topix, I will copy it and paste it on the NJO forum for straw to read.
