helpful to Bush. If the NEA supports Strickland, then I'm pro-Blackwell:
the NEA is a radical group far to the left of most teachers, & those
teachers have no choice but to pay dues by checkoff...in '04 the NEA was
a huge contributor to Kerry & the most liberal Dems.
I agree that Israel isn't affected by state govt. But higher taxes (Ohio
is now one of the most taxed states; 20 yrs ago it was one of the least)
will depress property values, causing real estate taxes up to support
the sinkhole of public schools. Only capitalism, i.e. school choice
competition, will stop the hemorrhage. So school vouchers, which won't
help me because my youngest child is in his 20's & my grandchildren live
in Alabama, are still the decidine issue for me.
