I hate this guy. He's not wrong.

GA would need a cut off man to throw the brick through the front window.

I don’t know about Fauci’s salary.  $417K sounds like a huge number, but there are lots of doctors in the private sector that make that kind of money.  I can’t say that I have an opinion on either.  
 

I will say again what I’ve said before.  Dr. Fauci should have resigned from his role vis a vis COVID-19 when it became clear that he had not been truthful about the masks.  I’m not really that interested in his reasons. I don’t really care about stringing the guy up or defending him.  I accept that there were reasonable ideas that had him do what he did.  I also know that it sucks a lot to mislead the public about what was going on as far as the efficacy of masks.  I appreciate it’s not a good position for him to be in.  Fine.  But the right thing to do was resign.  He should have said he was wrong and resigned.   All he did was give ammunition to the dumbest assholes on earth.  He allowed doubt to be validated.  And now we’re cursed with these fuckers that refuse to wear masks and point at him.    That’s far worse imo, than the initial falsehood.  
 

He’s not the only epidemiologist in the country.  Someone else could have stood there and regurgitated the facts and talked to fucking Chuck Todd or whoever the fuck.   If he had useful advice he could have given it from the background.  
 

not good at all.  

Communication is key.

good luck getting buy in from the worthless teachers unions

The buy in is at a cost. As is teachers get little support financially to maintain classroom supplies, it comes from their post tax salaries and there are no write offs.

So what makes you think the school districts, that have already sunk years of budgets on laptops for students to work at home, will keep and maintain cleanliness standards they hadn't met in the past? They are going to make teachers janitors of their own rooms spending an inordinate amount of time scrubbing everything from desks, chairs, tables, right down to each pencil handed out. 

Then just think for one second how you are going to get children, the little social beasts, to act like robots and not congregate, not touch one another, not rub their snotty noses and then touch everything in sight, how do you control an infection breeding ground?

It's pretty easy to shit on the teachers union, my wife doesn't like them either and she's been teaching for over 20 years. But in this case they are the only thing between tens of thousands of employees and a State that can't even administer vaccines or have a functionally consistent policy in this pandemic that actually has had any real impact on prevention of spread. 

One teacher in a room of 30 uncontrolled subjects that have no consistent protocols at home. Until vaccinated I don't think a single teacher should be demanded to work under those circumstances.

I wasn't specifically referring to California unions as I have no idea what their stance is on this. I know the Chicago one told it's teachers to call off sick in protest. Ultimately the students are the ones that will pay the price in the long term so this shit needs to get figured out.

They have only one negotiating tool. The shit that needs to happen is vaccination. It's pretty simple, coordinate a sensible vaccination priority and get it done. If you believe teachers back in the classroom are a top priority then put them in the front of the line. Otherwise don't put them at an unnecessary risk while the solution is there.

Oh man you face’d me, grandpa!  Yeah, I caught the fake disease the media made so they could scare FS.

If it wasn't for the media you would have just thought you had the flu. Probably wouldn't have even given it a second thought. Hope you enjoyed sweating your oversized balls off in your garage.

We have been told that this is exactly what we will be doing a couple of times per day. We go back to our building on the first. I'll only have half of my room, but we cannot have any community supplies. The laptops have all been checked out to the neediest families, which means finding a new way to do my quizzes, at least for my in-person kids. On the plus side, I did get the first dose of the vaccine yesterday and have had no ill effects so far.
