  •  It's intersting that an "incompetent" (4+ / 0-)

    employee was competent enough to train his replacement. It's code to all but the most willfully ignorant that an older more expensive employee was replace by a younger one.

    And COBRA was signed by President Ronald Reagan in 1985. It fits perfectly with the Republican agenda of supporting private health insurance even though it bleeds those who have lost their jobs dry. Things like this have been around so long that it's considered mainstream rather than the horrible right wing thing that it is.

    I hate that you and mr.u are in this position.

      We still have a chance on the privatization issue. It is unpopular with parents and local businesses not to mention all the families that will be screwed by it.

      The final decision hasn't been made and our union is fighting hard. (Key word  "union") The proposal was made by a new little asshole who was elected to the school board and clearly has ambitions to higher office. Ironically, his dad was a custodian and retired with his pension.
