Politics and Old Suckasunny Day

Saturday was Roxbury Township’s annual street festival and as usual, various political elements were represented. Both the local Republicans and Democrats had booths, but of more interest perhaps was a booth for Roxbury TEAM. Team stands for Taxpayer Education Association Member. It was formed to support board member Maureen Castriotta in her fight against a board censure, but is also looking to run candidates in next April’s school election.

A flyer distributed listed a two point platform:
A: Restore fairness to salary and benefits compensation in the next teachers contract.
B: See (that) at least 60 percent of school funding is spent in the classroom, not on administration.

Interestingly, the school district had a booth nearby, but there was no trouble.

Also on hand was a booth by the John Birch Society. I was tempted to run over to them and say, “Hey, there’s a Commie hiding in the bushes across the street,” but that may have alarmed them too much. Their issue of the day was to “Stop Obama-care.”

Guess no one told them health care reform is a done deal. The bill was passed, signed and is already beginning to take effect.

    Many states are working on “Healthcare Freedom” bills that will Nullify the Unconstitutional ObamaCare Law in that state. The John Birch Society is correct on this issue. Read this book: “Nullification: How to Resist Federal Tyranny in the 21st Century.”

    I have a toilet seat made of birch wood and in looking through the vast internet, I found others with toilet seats made of birch. So, we have formed the Birch John Society.
