"To cut the teaching positions from 2 to 1.5 is a disservice to the students, parents, and the entire Leland & Gray community."

"A Phys Ed teacher $191,124"
"Drive Ed $164,985 "
All brought to America by hysterical soccer moms and education worshippers, just raise taxes and drive the real jobs out of the country, it's for the children so when they grow up they can't find a job thanks to their stupid mothers.

I've lived in VT for the past 10 years and it is without question the whitest state, and this the whitest area, I've ever lived in in my life. I came here to go to grad school and was frankly stunned by suddenly hearing only one language, English, everywhere I went, and rarely seeing anyone who wasn't white. It was disorienting to say the least, and not anything that I ever saw "promoted" or "featured" in any of the many brochures, Chamber of Commerce materials, or websites encouraging people to move to or visit VT.
And I have never, prior to moving here, seen so many people of all races so frantically determined to "uncover" racism in their communities.
If your biggest worry is a random campaign slogan that mimics a food label I'd say you're doing pretty well.

Teachers are a frill. I can tell by your writing skills that you managed to avoid them yourself.
#5 Dec 15, 2010
PS to Joe: My statement "teachers are a frill" was meant to be sarcastic. My guess is you're no good at subtle interpretation, either.

You might have been well trained in english like an animal can be trained, but evidently you aren't a thinking creature if you think blowing into metal objects and making noise is what education is about, music is a frill. A hobby activity.
The same school system that produced my deplorable english skills also produced kids who did better at it, some kids are better than others at a lot of things. Evidently financial skills wasn't one of you high points.
Considering the financial condition of this country including the states and the typical family it's evident more resources need to be applied to something more important than having fun,fun,fun and peeing your pants because little Tiffany managed to make some nice noise by blowing into a metal object. By the kids Kazoo's and tell them go outside and play.

Joanie, you are right on with your assessment of the local population. A small minority fall all over themselves trying to appear so diverse, inclusive, and welcoming of minorities, but truth be told; when it comes to bigotry, anti-Semitism, and racism, Lilly White Southern Vermonters put Southern Rednecks to shame.

In 1967, 17 states still had laws against interracial marriage, yet neither Vermont nor any New England state had such laws.
It's silly to insist as a few ninnies have that just cuz VT is about 96% white means that there's a racism problem here! A LOT of people who are used to 'urban' living, black OR white or other, just find VT rather boring, and of course cold!
I've seen that 'semite' term misused over and over- anyone that believes that 'semite' is synonymous with 'jew' should look it up in any dictionary.
If what you say is true 'Informer', then I would expect to see Hollyweird, which tends to portray some sociological/regional realities of people, to have put out some movie(s) about this great racial problem here you speak of. Tell me- what movies show the bigotry/hate/visciousness of 'lilly white Vermonters' here in the north or even any New Englanders in the fashion of Mississipi Burning/Deliverence, Cool Hand Luke, Easy Rider etc. portrayed about southerners?
I've only been through the south once in 1979 and I saw it firsthand- rotten white punkass girls and boys mistreating black kids, even between fellow employees in the same restaurant in Georgia. I understand that 'the line'(a main road) through Columbus GA still deliniates the whites from the blacks. My grandfather who I was helping to move to Florida that year told me that if you need to ask directions in the deep south, try to find a black guy to ask, as a white person there will hear you're yankee accent and get you lost"
I think the fact that a lot of 'hippies' came here in the late 60s-70s and were not shot at as in the end of Easy Rider but somewhat accepted, as have been all the monied New Yorkies with their arrogance, many of them jewish etc. shows that the State is rather torerant compared to many others. Although I do believe that 'tourist season' in Vermont should mean it's OK to shoot certain flatlanders especially Jersey jerkooffs and those damn Masshooles! nyuk nyuk

Scott, you sound like you might just be the ex-boyfriend in the following story.

-Nah, I don't care for football. I adopted a flatlander and trained it to be my my 'groomer'->
I also do radiation experiments on it to see if what the VYtards say is true, that radiation isn't bad 4u but actually good.

Are These Cupcakes Racist?

Scott perhaps this better fits your profile.
From VPR: Email from Stephen in Springfield--
"I know you will be flooded with a great deal of sanctimony from hypocritical
white liberals who have settled in Vermont, deeply concerned about the Evils of Racism. My own perspective is a little bit different.
By way of background, I spent grade school in Chester, was graduated from
Brattleboro Union High School, and later from UVM. The year after that, I moved to Washington, D.C., where I spent several years living in an inner-city neighborhood; near the H Street corridor, long a symbol of urban blight, poverty, and crime, and justly so. The daily body count was only beginning to rise back then, and crack cocaine had just hit the city. I, my roommates and my next door neighbors were the only white people on the block; I was the only one from Vermont.
I witnessed the entire human drama in small. Besides the crime, which my
roommates personally experienced, I also saw black women, black churches, and a handful of youth try to contain the poverty, to marshal their minimal resources to make anything better, to channel their rage and pain to the betterment of the neighborhood, and, most importantly, never to give up. I grew to admire their efforts, and offered aid when I could -- and joined in when allowed. As you can imagine, trust was never easy.
I'll tell you who I did not see there: earnest white liberals. They were not
volunteering in soup kitchens. They were not donating to the churches. They
were not trying to help those who did not know how to get medical care, or
where they could turn for help, and they were certainly not going to associate
personally with those people.
The pressures of single parenthood forced me to return to Vermont, and to
Brattleboro, which I found to be festering with the sort of white liberal
hypocrisy that so angered my D.C. neighbors, who told me over and over again that they preferred an honest Klansman to the sort of lip-service liberal who offered naught but rhetoric and disdain. These same people who declaimed their abhorrence of racism but had no black friends left urban environments en masse to come to Vermont in order to lecture the natives about racism. They could safely face what they saw in the mirror here.
I found that you pay a heavy penalty when you point this out to them, and I
have no doubt I'm doing myself no favor by pointing it out again. The fact is, in the 1980s they were quite happy to be arrested protesting apartheid in South Africa and meeting celebrities, but they never pulled an agonized old man out of the gutter as I once did and got him to the hospital. They never pulled a frightened child out of the way of a crazed and angry parent, never called the cops when an elderly woman collapsed in the street. But I'm sure they cherish their autographs.
So, to bring this full circle, I reiterate that you will get a lot of the usual
rhetoric from those who want to pat themselves on the back for their tolerance. I'll believe it when I see them volunteering in a D.C. school."

"in order to lecture the natives about racism."
-what 'natives'? Ain't nobody native to any place, even the Indians (which I am part) originally came here from elsewhere. I was born and grew up in flatland and could have stayed there and certainly made a better living there but decided to get away from the ratrace and scuminess of that wretched place and live where it's generally much nicer and cleaner etc., up here.
In Washington D.C.(the District of Criminals) the BIGgest criminals ain't the unemployed blacks etc. smoking crack (a result of the CIA's massive drug importation)- it's those corrupt treasonous scum on the hill who the sheeple elected to 'represent' them!
I've *volunteered* MANY hours in trying to wake the sheeple, even though it mostly seems of little use since they tend to prefer cognitive dissonance over dealing with hard truth. The worst criminals were pointed at by Obama's Reverend Wright when he said 2 truths that sheeple still won't deal with- that the govt./CIA has been importing MOST of the cocaine and heroin for decades, and that AIDS is a laboratory creation. I knew that almost 20 years ago and helped expose what a few good caring doctors like Strecker, Cantwell and Horowitz were documenting. Back in the 90s I made many copies of the 2 pages from the 1969 Congressional Record (HR 15090) PROVING that the Pentagon, under the Chemical & Biological warfare programs, appropriated 10 million to create man-made viruses that would attack the human immune system and be incurable. I showed that to U.S. rep B.S. Bernie Sanders and he poo-pooed it saying "Oh that doesn't mean they went ahead and did it, the govt. puts money to a lot of things it doesn't actually carry out." That was the lameass excuse B.S. used to ignore THE hardest ADMITTED evidence in black&white about THE most insidious mass genocide operation ever! Back then he was also pretending to care and do something (but didn't) about our soldiers with Gulf War illness, which was partly due to exposure to bio&chem agents that were SOLD/GIVEN to Saddam by our govt. under G. Bush Sr. Then after the inside job of 9/11 he pretended to care about the evils of USA PATRIOT Act while still ignoring the greater evils. I didn't know anyone with AIDS nor care much about the plight of those it was deployed upon, in Africa (the smallpox vaccine) and here by the fact that it was also laced into the original Hep-B vaccine which they encouraged 'gay' men to take. Yet I understood that the same damn NWO pushing eugenicist elitists that would 'cull the herd' through their man made diseases (and wars) would not stop with Africans and que ers here but next oppress/kill the rest of us all who they admittedly see as 'useless eaters' using up 'their' resources on 'their' planet.("First they came for the others, yet I didn't speak up, then they came for...")

In my time I've see MANY hypocrite truthphobes of BOTH political sides etc. and I don't side with either left OR right or any religion or color etc. when it comes to injustice- the importance of getting justice against the murderous NWO control freaks. It matters NOT to me if someone is 'offended' by truth! In fact I ENJOY telling it and seeing who hates that and then berating them for being truthhaters, whether they're white or black or leftwing or rightwing or 'jew' or 'goy' or whatever- cuz those things don't matter to the truth.
I'm the kind who tells the one about to burn the Koran that 'the towelheads' didn't do 9/11 and that own his logic says it makes more sense to burn the hateful jewish Talmud books which claim Jesus is in hell boiling in excrement than the one that says He was a great prophet and a man of no sin. I'm also the kind who sees a woman with two bumper stickers, one supporting abortion and one supporting witchcraft and I yell out to her "Yeah, witchcraft and baby killing, those two always have gone together haven't they?"
I don't 'Support the Troops' since they are not following the Constitution nor fighting for my freedoms but for the globalists who buy off many congresscritters to violate the document they all took an oath to.
I can't help it if anti-abortion and anti-welfare state people tend to be of the 'rightwing' and the anti-nuke and anti-GMO food folks tend to be of the 'leftwing'---each side makes sense in those issues and I join each group- in THOSE issues I see them rightfully fighting for or against.
Some righty type twit sees my anti-VY button and ASSuMEs I'm a 'liberal', but I didn't get upset when he called me that- he's stuck in the right side of the false "Left Right Paradigm" (google it) and stupidly thinks Bush etc. was good, just as a lefty twit who stupidly thinks Obama is good will see me as a 'homophobe'/'hater' whatever just cuz I'm against new 'hate crime' laws and socialistic 'healthcare' and abortion etc. I refuse to be pigeonholed as right or left, the REAL paradigm is right vs. wrong.
-does that help you to 'profile' me better?
"You can lead the sheeple to the truth but you can't make them think"
I'm listening to todays Alex Jones' show right now at infowars.com and he's getting into some of this as he often does. I don't waste time listening to VPR or any such 'news'/distrationary BS.
