    decent humans?

    One co-worker suggested sending all the politicians who care more about the NRA the autopsy photos of the ones we have lost due to gun violence.

    Stand outside their offices with signs of our loved ones now shot and killed.  

    But I know that nothing will make Republicans humane to others.

        is Republican Porn.  

        They say they are pro-life but they are really about pro-longing pain and misery.

      •  I was at an IEP meeting years ago (12+ / 0-)

        for my son who is autistic.  The Special Ed Director was notorious for turning sideways from the table and opening his scheduler and writing in it.  I guess others assumed he was jotting notes.. but I found it rude.

        So finally after a battle with this bastard, I stood up and asked him what was so bleeping important that he had to turn from the table to write instead of listening to an "expert' brought in to explain why wanting to tie up my child... yes they wanted him tied up because he would "stim" - aka doodle - in class during reading time and they the school felt he wasn't paying attention etc etc.. .and my expert said it was child abuse to even think of doing it.

        He closed his book and looked nervous.  I demanded he show us his notebook.

        He was doodling in it.  In fact, his entire "scheduler-daily planner" was nothing but doodles and lines and checkerboards.  And a few cuss words written and re-written over in bold like fashion.

        I then requested and had it allowed that the special ed director didn't need to sign off on anything we wanted, needed from then on.  

        Confront them.  It sucks the power right out of them.

        I'm so glad we are out of that area.  My son finally got an education he deserved here.  He now has a chance.

        •  that really pisses me off (5+ / 0-)

          I can't believe that such a person was put in a position of power. I hope he was fired after this.

          Im really glad that you stood up for your son, and that things are much better for you.

          •  I can't BELIEVE that they considered tying him up (7+ / 0-)

            If you don't want to help a child with disabilities then DONT WORK THERE. Let the people who actually care do the job. These people are ruining lives, it makes no sense.

            •  We helped write the Hughes Law. (0+ / 0-)

              after all of this.  There is so much more to the story of what this school district did.  5 of 6 teachers were "let go" meaning they went from NoCal to Montana.  We sent faxes to the local news stations about them.... but education is a distant priority to many - even back 10 years ago...

              They also wanted to train the aides in "basket holds"... you can die in a hold like that.  Time out rooms... some were off campus - little boxes with locks on them..

              It's illegal.  The Hughes Law makes sure of that now.

              It was the longest, hardest fight of my life.
