Thank him for his service

| August 11, 2020

All veterans have prepared for war. Some of our readers and columnists have gone to war. Our veteran and first responders here have all had to sacrifice for their service. During this time of COVID though, there are other people putting their lives on the line. Here’s one that demands you bow before his greatness.

Turtleboy reports on a Danvers, MA teacher who is very concerned about COVID. He doesn’t want your hollow platitude of thanks those thanks are meaningless when the world has schools. Those schools need teachers with books and pencils. Who’s gonna do it? You? He has a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You have the luxury of not knowing what he knows. You don’t want the truth of being a public school teacher because deep down in places you don’t talk about at parties, you want him in that school, you need him in that school.

This particular fellow works at the same school in which a teacher was raped and murdered in 2013 by a student. That pales in comparison to the mental and physical trauma he will suffer if he is forced to return to school this fall.

I make light here, but teaching kids is a hard job. I wouldn’t want to do it. I’m grateful we have people that do want to do it. Most of them put more time and effort into the job than is returned to them in compensation. It can be a thankless job some days, I’m sure. It is, however, not akin to charging San Juan Hill, climbing Mt Suribachi, or pushing a squad car in Baltimore City.

    Baby Girl is an Educator, major system in Floriduh. It’s a war zone. She finally got her a CCW. I am very proud of her and the job she does, but I fear for her safety…daily. Gots some nieces in the same boat. The public school systems are a joke.

    • Hack Stone says:

      And the only way to make those schools safer is by removing law enforcement from the schools. Hack has seen quite a few videos on line where it is hard to determine if the School Resource Officers are there to protect the students from outsiders with bad intentions or protect the teachers from the students. Our children are our future. Unless we stop them now.

      Bless her heart.

    I suggest this… man… reconsider his career choice and take up a new profession, something where he can avoid things that may trigger any insecurities he may have, real or imagined. I have far more respect for the high school student bagging my groceries at the local supermarket, who faces a much greater risk of infection than this pasty fat fuck ever will.

    Three teachers in the family, all of whom would happily slap the dog snot out of this guy. Not because he is wrong, but because he is whining.

    • OldSoldier54 says:

      Yep, never go Whiskey Bravo. NEVER. You lose all credibility irregardless of the circumstances.

    It seems to my unenlightened eyes that this man’s rather tubby build is going to be what kills him first. Well before the coronavirus does. Heh heh heh 😏

    He is a math teacher and PLAYWRIGHT at Danvers High School. PLAYWRIGHT?!? That’s fucking rich!!! Per his LinkedIn page, he calls himself a “Modern renaissance man”

    “Im about to go to school knowing that every day the kids in front of me could kill me or one of my colleagues or each other…”

    Given the widely expanding waistline portrayed in the images they showed, i’d be more worried about that massive coronary killing him than a case of the RONA. But, you do you booboo.

    I shared this is another forum and thought it bore repeating, once more for the cheap seats…

    “This is once again coming from the CDC, so of course there is a bit of a lag, but im sure the numbers hold steady. This based off of 123,126 fatalities from the RONA, vice the 163K deaths being reported, and the 3.75 million cases CONFIRMED, vice the 5.08 million cases being confirmed. But, once again the pattern holds. As it stands: there have been 97,622 deaths from Corona out of those 123,126 thousand in the age 65+ bracket. This is 79% of the reported deaths. Deaths out of 0-49? 6240. If you get a CONFIRMED case of COVID, which is 3,752,800 confirmed cases from the CDC, and you are aged 0-49 years old….you have a .1% chance of dying….LITERALLY. So, 6240 deaths….in 50 states equates to 125 deaths. Over 4 months….about one death…..per day…..where most state average populations are over a MILLION people. That is a ten THOUSANDTH of a percent. Scared yet?”

    Thanks to all the buffets for having food for him to eat.

  7. OldSoldier54 says:

    Is this guy related to the Round Ranger?

    He looks like he’s waaaaaaaay into doughnut curls.

    You WANT me in that class!!
    You NEED me in that class!!

    Sadly, this assclown is not alone in his whiny bullshit.

    • HMCS(FMF) ret says:

      And the kicker is that they have the financial and legal backing of their respective union at the national level to force the districts to do what they (teachers) want them to do.

  10. Jarhead says:

    Click on the first link mentioned in this post and find a remarkable story about a buffoon who can tell you where the desert section is at every buffet within 100 miles. What he writes personally is despicable to any person who has ever worn a military uniform. His first name is Tofer….wonder if he has to use his namesake and buy belts ONLY when they are on sale..TOFER ONE!? Now that I think of it, he was wearing suspenders in the picture. Maybe he should change his name to Fourfer.

  11. The Other Whitey says:

    Shit, I never demanded or expected to be thanked for any of the times that I’ve *actually* almost died from building collapse, extreme wildland/structure fire behavior, almost smeared on the freeway, carbon monoxide poisoning, nearly wrecked an engine while driving on 48+ hours without sleep, severe heat exhaustion, or exposure to fatal communicable diseases. Nor for any of the times I *wished* I was dead while puking as I dragged hose up a mountain in triple-digit heat, or later froze my ass off on the same mountain overnight, or went days without sleep. Nor for the times that things like the sight of a young child’s lifeless body added up and made me consider ending my own life. Nor for the time I actually put my 1911 to the side of my head and cut my finger on the trigger. I don’t seem attention or ask for discounts, either.

    This whiner doesn’t rate a single one of my giveable fucks.

    “Teachers” are the next career to die.

    1. You do not need them to teach your children.
    2. The next round of AI will be better at it.
    3. AI does not need pensions that bankrupt school districts.

    In fact, the entire fraud of the “education system” will die with functional AI deployment over the next 10 years. No buildings, no “art departments”, no sports, no stadiums, gyms, or insurance. Just a lights out data center and a couple of help desk techs.

    I’m excited about this coming reality. My HS education was a joke. Your HS education was a joke. It is far past time we just admit that everything after 4th grade is a jobs program for the functionally useless who can’t earn livings in the actual economy.

    Getting a competent teacher who GAS about students and actually knows anything after 4th grade is like winning the lottery.
