Funny how a few minutes ago there were comments on the NDAA discussion and after I posted a reply, most of them were gone. including yours? Wondering if that shows up when you pull up the discussion as well?
Yeah there is, and thanks for letting me know, the reason I was asking is because I thought I might know him, though I don't since I go to SJ, though there are two teachers there who are conservatives, my Economics teacher from last semester, and U.S. History Teacher from last year, Mr. Hoffman, and my Civics teacher for this semester, Mr. Gary Etter. With Mr. Hoffman this year, when I had him, you could somewhat tell, he didn't like the textbook, for it as he rarely taught from it, preferring to teach us from notes and such. But what was really nice is that he said, at the beginning of the course, like he did last year for U.S History, that he isn't going to tell us his political views, as it isn't his job to indoctrinate us in his opinions, but to teach us the FACTS. That's why he's one of my favorite teachers, he teaches the facts, not his opinions, though when I would talk to him, after class, it was pretty easy to see that he was a conservative.
Hey, Mr. Erb, I just saw your comment on the Twin Cities Group wall, and have a question for you. That Conservative local public school teacher, what school does he teach at, and what's his name? If you don't mind me asking that is.
I am the chairperson for the Twin Cities Group located in the St. Joseph / Benton Harbor area and would like to welcome you to the SW Michigan Tea Party Patriots. Thank you for your interest, and hope you will actively join in our fight to preserve this great country, and our constitution.
The following is a condensed version of our mission statement. If you would like to connect with patriots from your area, I encourage you to join the group nearest you, or any other groups you would like to communicate with. When you join specific groups, you will receive updates on information we share, upcoming events, group meetings, and the ability to communicate with group members. Let me know if you have any questions.
We the people can make a difference,
