WWJD? He'd keep teachers broke for the sake of the kids

    At least that's gospel according to Alabama (of course) State Senator Shadrack McGill, R-Woodville.


    Fortunately, McGill has the kind of experience you would want for a man making such weighty pronouncements. I present his biography from the state legislature website, verbatum.

    Cut teacher salaries to zero, and you will attract only people who are really, really "called" to constantly be around young people.

    Like him:


    Great idea, fuckstick.

    Between the daily gaffes by the GOP presidential candidates and the local guys/gals, we probably could have a running "Stupid Things GOP Politicians Say" thread.

    Make fun of McGill all you want, but his ideas on teachers have been espoused by members of this board - vigorously and emotionally. And not just by right-leaning members of this board, either.

    And it's also a bedrock principle of the journalism industry, propagated for generations by bean counters. It's not a true "calling" unless you are always teetering on bankruptcy.

    I lived (and worked) in Jackson County at one time. This guy is a tool from the back of the shed. I mean, a real pompous jerk, too. I wouldn't have voted him for dog-catcher. How he wins in a notoriously Dem. county, I'll never know.

    I wonder what the salary threshold is for making the determination if someone is called to serve in public office.

    Back when I used to cover local pols like this maroon (and not making very much money) I never thought I should actually become a politician. Now, I would gladly take their 30 grand and spout off what I ever I felt like. "McGovern would have been better in '72!"
