We boomers grew up in a unique time in history. People, average ones, lived well. Never much happened before the fifties and sixties. But people did live well. Why? No good bastard socialist worker rabble rowser workers were fed up with working in factories for most of the day for puke wages. They revolted. They died. They said NO, we will NOT be screwed. And they won! Workers got stuff like, um, NOT pay for no work but liveable pay for honest work. UNIONS gave all of us that little thing along with vacation and sick time. Unions did. Not socialists. Unions that didn't accept slave wages. But we're back there, thanks, repugs. I've worked hard for 33 years teaching. I have twenty grand in the bank and two questionable and diminishing retirement policies, maybe a hundred grand all told. I have not pushed my liberal views on any students. There's no time. I push English et al. Fifty years ago a teacher, like my dad, had a retirement. Other workers did too. Guess what folks. Most of us now do not. Republicans called such things "socialism." If you are a repug, you agreed. And we're not even talking health care. My plan is good. Actually I have two. If I am still working and go broke, and it could happen, don't EVEN ask me about today, I will unbuckle my seat belt and hit my school at ninety. If I am laid off, I will sit in my recliner for good. Won't get up. For anything. Will die. But I will write some stuff to leave behind. If you are a worker and vote repug on some abortion shit, look at your dead future.
