    Genius needs to be free, like a lion rampant.
    In fact, the DSP jack should be Rube Rampant.

    I usually read all his content. Lately ... less so. That's mostly because I'm getting ready for the new school year, not because I'm less a Rube Fluffer ...

    But as a writing teacher, I wish my students wrote as honestly as Rube does. He's as crazy as a shithouse mouse, but he's a better read than 90% of the fuckstick journalists on cable or the metro papers.

    "Crazier than a shithouse..." Haven't heard that expression since my Dad passed. He said
    "rat" though, instead of "mouse" .
    I never knew what it meant. I had to ask him when I was a kid.
    It's about as perfect a description and saying there is in the English language, however vernacular.

    Shithouse rat is accurate. Dad being Brooklyn, he opted for mouse, as it rhymed. Ever the poet of the poor, my Da.

    I'm far from the perfect poppa, but if I do my job right, my wee ones will grow up speaking forms of Depression era NY, just as I did.

    I got snipe level control.
    And if I don't got it that day I'll take a metaphorical val to steady my aim.
    Snipers little helper.
    But I use the buckshot method on purpose because sometimes I'm afraid that I might make someone feel bad.
    And a little bit of shot feels a lot less hard than a snipe to the dome.
    Although lately I've been taking more direct shots.
    Because it's past the axe sharpening time.
    I'm not like AI. I practice practice practice for the one perfect shot.
    But here is the rub.
    In practice I work on my swing by changing It up.
    Y'all don't get pristine material.
    Y'all get my practice swings.
    There's no women here.
    I only get sheepish around them.
    So I take all the foul balls and send them past the lines so the fans can catch a rock or two blasting outta the plate.

    Yeah, the best. You get that as a hand me down growing up in the ghetto.
    I must admit, though, as great as the Jersey based jargon is, my mother and her died in the wool cockney expressions were equal in every way.
    The rhyming slang is just so beautiful.
    Sometimes my son and I use it, and no one knows what the fuck we are talking about...
    Excuse me, goin' up the apples for a pony...

    It's the gosh darned truth.
    Nobody fucks with the Jesus.
    Not even my dearest childhood friends.
    I'm sniping my own.
    Friendly fire is on.
    People running around shooting they gun like crazy not even knowing what kind of bullets they firing or where they come from.
    That's cuz they play with safe and sane fireworks.
    Playing the shooter game with friendly fire off only makes you into a shitty teammate who stops at every doorway to make sure it's safe instead of running through that bitch after the point man gave the signal.
    If you always stand at the door way and block your squadmates from entering the fray all you doing is creating a choke point for the enemy to take you all out in an instant.
    When friendly fire is on everyone stays on RED fucking ALERT.
    How else people gonna git gud?

    I love you too man.
    Teachers are few and far between.
    And the best teacher I had in college taught humanities and world history, logic, and religions of the world. I took all his classes even the art history one and helped the other kids cheat.
    My worst teachers were in compsci.
    I needed to rely on pretty foreign girls to get by.
    Whenever I got near a good teacher I squeezed as much as I could out of em.
    And not in an Irish way.
    Good teachers that are involved with their students and help spur their natural curiosity to learn are a national treasure.
    And they should be viewed in media like the magnets of force that they are.
    For instance in this current stay at home schooling situation teachers such as yourself should be placed by their employers as examples.
    The best teachers should be allowed to have virtual classrooms in the thousands.
    With moderators at home or wherever small groups of students can legally gather to help spread your teaching while giving direct help to the student.
    This imo would help educate lots of parents/moderators too.
    And give back the specialness that being a teacher used to have.
    Because the teacher title has been driven through the mud for a long time.
    But a good teacher is priceless.
    With a union though there are no best teachers. Everyone is equal and many new teachers learn to do their job to the curve.
    The communist way.

    You'll have to lure them out with an elaborate 10,000 word rant, or a 144 character zinger.

    I'm merely an impartial pollster.
    Although I did vote.

    Get off the poll.
    You know what impartiality really is.
    Gay.
    And not the good kind that Irish enjoys.
    Voting is easy.
    Other people voting... That's worthy of mention.
