This made my daySubmitted by AKsteve on Wed, 02/04/2009 - 17:46
I just got an email from my son who is going to Portland Community College. He was stoked about a public speaking class that he and the other members of Caterpillars "Think Big" program have to take for their appenticeship. During the inauguration he and the other classmates were forced to watch. The instructor watched with tears streaming down her face in adoration of the "chosen" one. After words she gave a long speal about how now we have hope lade dah boodee boo..... Then these redneck mechanics had their chance to give their verbal oration of what they felt just conspired. My understanding is that all of them basicaly said that what we are heading for is facism. The instructor then stood up trembling with anger and said "they were the problem" etc etc. Well it just strengthened their resolve. Today one of the guys ...Kevin.... I think actualy played a Aaron Russo DVD today in class then gave a oration after words. I think she bit off more than she can chew.
Anyone in Portland see some guys with grungy black Carheart coats and Cat hats with the bills bent kinda narrow and oil stained pants give the a hearty pat on the back for me.
Sam (was an alt delegate in Alaska) thanks for the good work. Take the guys out on my credit card tonight. I'll tip back some Mead in toast of Kevin myself.
