And ya wonder why the taxpayers think that the Teacher’s Unions are a bad idea…I am sure that the whores that are in leadership of the local union at South Yarmouth will defend these traitorous so called ‘educators’…frankly these two teachers need to try this stunt at a local Teamster’s meeting and see what happens.

SOUTH YARMOUTH — Some students are calling for the firing of two Dennis-Yarmouth Regional High School teachers who held an anti-war sign during a school assembly Friday.

History teacher Marybeth Verani and English teacher Adeline Koscher made their silent protest during the part of the assembly in which school officials recognized graduating seniors who are entering the military.

“They not only imposed their political will, they imposed it at the wrong time,” said D-Y junior Andrew Bowles Jr., who organized an after-school protest yesterday that drew about 30 students.

Parents and other community members have flooded the high school principal’s office with about 40 e-mails and phone calls criticizing the teachers’ actions.

“I honestly feel (the protest) was misplaced,” said D-Y parent Joanne Schuman of Yarmouth. “I think they should have been removed from that event.”

Some individuals have voiced support for the two teachers, who were put on paid leave until at least tomorrow, Verani said.

She said she and Koscher were not trying to undermine the students but “to address the expansion of military recruitment of children in our schools.

James Kinney of West Barnstable, who knows Verani and wrote a letter to the editor of the Cape Cod Times in her support, defended the teachers.

“I think that it’s important to show dissent,” he said. “I think that’s the highest form of patriotism.”

Tool.

The highest form of patriotism is not holding a protest sign, you stinking quimby. This is the highest form of patriotism.

Maureen Tuohy-Bedford, whose son Evan Tuohy-Bedford just graduated and has joined the U.S. Marine Corps, wouldn’t let the protestors ruin Friday’s assembly.

“The ceremony was beautiful,” she said. “So many people did the right thing.

God Speed, Marine.

    Nope, they don’t think. They want to have their public tantrums and by Stan, they will have them NOW!! Note how it’s only their “dissent” (hello? What dissent? This is the Party line now!)that is patriotic. Try criticizing Obama’s policies, or Pelosi’s thievery, and you’ll be labeled a racist-fascist-wingnut-teabagger-crazy (and those are the more printable epithets) or even physically attacked.

    As someone who has part time subtaught since 1989 in order to make extra money when I had days off or vacation days from my regular jobs let me tell you all that teacher can be divided into three categories -- 1/3 excellent, devoted and totally committed to their students, 1/3 are morons who cannot stand their students but are teachers because they are incapable of doing anything else and treat teaching as just another job, the other 1/3 are those who are time watchers who are just interested in more money, better pensions, and more days off and cannot wait to retire.

    Please forgive the OT but this is important (h/t Eureferendum)

    A site ‘Oildrum’ seems to have figured out what the problem with the well in the Gulf is. The actual wellbore, 1000 ft below the seabed has fractured. This is not fixable.

    What does this mean?

    It means they will never cap the gusher after the wellhead. They cannot…the more they try and restrict the oil gushing out the bop?…the more it will transfer to the leaks below. Just like a leaky garden hose with a nozzle on it. When you open up the nozzle?…it doesn’t leak so bad, you close the nozzle?…it leaks real bad,
    same dynamics. It is why they sawed the riser off…or tried to anyway…but they clipped it off, to relieve pressure on the leaks “down hole”. I’m sure there was a bit of panic time after they crimp/pinched off the large riser pipe and the Diamond wire saw got stuck and failed…because that crimp diverted pressure and flow to the rupture down below.
    [ ]
    A down hole leak is dangerous and damaging for several reasons.
    There will be erosion throughout the entire beat up, beat on and beat down remainder of the “system” including that inaccessible leak. The same erosion I spoke about in the first post is still present and has never stopped, cannot be stopped, is impossible to stop and will always be present in and acting on anything that is left which has crude oil “Product” rushing through it. There are abrasives still present, swirling flow will create hot spots of wear and this erosion is relentless and will always be present until eventually it wears away enough material to break it’s way out. It will slowly eat the bop away especially at the now pinched off riser head and it will flow more and more. Perhaps BP can outrun or keep up with that out flow with various suckage methods for a period of time, but eventually the well will win that race, just how long that race will be?…no one really knows….However now?…there are other problems that a down hole leak will and must produce that will compound this already bad situation.

    This down hole leak will undermine the foundation of the seabed in and around the well area. It also weakens the only thing holding up the massive Blow Out Preventer’s immense bulk of 450 tons. In fact?…we are beginning to the results of the well’s total integrity beginning to fail due to the undermining being caused by the leaking well bore.

    The first layer of the sea floor in the gulf is mostly lose material of sand and silt. It doesn’t hold up anything and isn’t meant to, what holds the entire subsea system of the Bop in place is the well itself. The very large steel connectors of the initial well head “spud” stabbed in to the sea floor. The Bop literally sits on top of the pipe and never touches the sea bed, it wouldn’t do anything in way of support if it did. After several tens of feet the seabed does begin to support the well connection laterally (side to side) you couldn’t put a 450 ton piece of machinery on top of a 100′ tall pipe “in the air” and subject it to the side loads caused by the ocean currents and expect it not to bend over…unless that pipe was very much larger than the machine itself, which you all can see it is not. The well’s piping in comparison is actually very much smaller than the Blow Out Preventer and strong as it may be, it relies on some support from the seabed to function and not literally fall over…and it is now showing signs of doing just that….falling over.
    [ ]
    What is likely to happen now?

    Well…none of what is likely to happen is good, in fact…it’s about as bad as it gets. I am convinced the erosion and compromising of the entire system is accelerating and attacking more key structural areas of the well, the blow out preventer and surrounding strata holding it all up and together. This is evidenced by the tilt of the blow out preventer and the erosion which has exposed the well head connection. What eventually will happen is that the blow out preventer will literally tip over if they do not run supports to it as the currents push on it. I suspect they will run those supports as cables tied to anchors very soon, if they don’t, they are inviting disaster that much sooner.

    Eventually even that will be futile as the well casings cannot support the weight of the massive system above with out the cement bond to the earth and that bond is being eroded away. When enough is eroded away the casings will buckle and the BOP will collapse the well. If and when you begin to see oil and gas coming up around the well area from under the BOP? or the area around the well head connection and casing sinking more and more rapidly? …it won’t be too long after that the entire system fails. BP must be aware of this, they are mapping the sea floor sonically and that is not a mere exercise. Our Gov’t must be well aware too, they just are not telling us.
    [ ]
    The system will collapse or fail substantially before we reach the finish line ahead of the well and the worst is yet to come.

    Sorry to bring you that news, I know it is grim, but that is the way I see it….I sincerely hope I am wrong.

    We need to prepare for the possibility of this blow out sending more oil into the gulf per week then what we already have now, because that is what a collapse of the system will cause. All the collection efforts that have captured oil will be erased in short order. The magnitude of this disaster will increase exponentially by the time we can do anything to halt it and our odds of actually even being able to halt it will go down.

    The magnitude and impact of this disaster will eclipse anything we have known in our life times if the worst or even near worst happens… Read it and weep

    If anything, this shows how selfish these teachers are. You want to protest, fine. Do it outside the school on your own time. Protesting the military while some of the graduates are going into the military is your way of saying they are silly in their intent. Its not patriotism.

    Petraeus Appears to Faint During Senate Testimony

    The commander of American forces in the Middle East. Gen. David H. Petraeus, appeared to faint briefly during an intense period of questioning Tuesday by senators concerning whether the military can fulfill President Obama’s orders to begin pulling troops from Afghanistan in July of next year.

    General Petraeus, a long-distance runner, slumped forward toward the microphone where he was seated, and was escorted from the Senate hearing room by aides.

    He returned about 30 minutes later, and was greeted with applause from those in the audience. “I just got dehydrated,” General Petraeus said. Though he indicated he was able to continue his testimony, the session was adjourned until later in the week.

    Not from what I read it doesnt. Top kill failed for a very simple reason, it’s called inverse pressure differential. That simplified means the pressure of the crude coming out of the well is far greater than the amount of pressure they were able to apply from the ships.

    American claiming to be hunting bin Laden arrested

    PESHAWAR, Pakistan – An American armed with a pistol and a 40-inch (102-centimeter) sword was detained in northern Pakistan and told investigators he was on a solo mission to kill Osama bin Laden, a police officer said Tuesday.

    The man, identified as 52-year-old Californian construction worker Gary Brooks Faulkner, said he wanted to cross over into the nearby Afghan province of Nuristan because he had “heard bin Laden was living there”, according to officer Mumtaz Ahmad Khan.

    Washington Sketch: Clinton finally ahead of Obama in popularity

    It’s about two years too late, but Hillary Clinton has finally pulled ahead of Barack Obama.

    By any measure — favorability ratings or job approval — Americans by a sizable margin have warmer views of the secretary of state than they do of the president. This is of little use to Clinton beyond bragging rights, but among Hillary ’08 fans there is some satisfaction that the woman Obama once cut down as “likable enough” is now more liked than he is. Depending on the measure and the poll, she leads him by roughly 10 to 25 percentage points.

    That’s their explanation, their speculation, which they have zero evidence to support. Simple rule in play here, when making extraordinary claims, extraordinary evidence is required.

    No doubt that BP is in deep shit here, but the simple facts explain what is going on without any requirement that anything extraordinary be involved.

    The simple facts in this case are, the well is a mile below the surface of the ocean (most people just cannot grasp how insane the pressure is at that level). It is way to deep for any human to work on the well head directly and the pressure involved makes the types of robotic devices very limited.

    My guess is it will depend on where the relief wells are drilled. If they are drilled into the borehole in-between the wellhead that is leaking and the oil deposit they are tapping they should.

    However bear in mind that no amount of relief wells are going to completely stop the leak, they will only reduce the volume of oil escaping, perhaps to the point where all of the oil can be captured, or maybe even enough that the wellhead itself can be plugged (which actually would stop the leak).
