Re: You lose, Rodeo. Try again.

    Rodeo, you've yet to include a verifiable fact in any of your posts.
    Please find one from a credible source and post it, preferably from a
    state or national study. Some of what you said is libelous, so I'll address it here:

    I've NEVER cast a slur on you, nor have I EVER called you a bigot. I never
    commented on your teaching ability (are you a teacher? based on your
    posts, I don't think so), just on your unwillingness to teach math or
    science and/or teach in low-performing schools -- both things YOU STATED
    in posts on other threads. I also never said you were stupid; your posts
    offer sufficient evidence of your intelligence.

    Your claim that I have slurred you is truly hypocritical (weak sauce, to
    be sure). Apart from making unsupported statements to the effect that CO
    schools/ teachers are better than CA's, the only thing you've done here is
    hurl insults at posters who question/ disagree with you, i.e. calling them
    leptons (I love it!), mental midgets, PC, goodie-goodies, Pollyannas, and

    YAWN. Get back to me with some facts, then we can talk. Until then, you're
    running against the wind. (Oh, and "et cetera" is two words.)
