I am turning into a borderline alcoholic.

True Story.


No, seriously. My economics teacher is one of the most spiteful people I have ever met. He's conservative to the point of making me want to vomit, and I have actually considered being a communist just to spite him. He mentioned that Jimmy Carter was not willing to pay the opportunity cost to defend freedom and liberty during the Soviet-Afgani conflict. He also basically said we shouldn't be worried about conservation efforts at all because we won't be alive when it becomes a problem. He could not be an actor because he has a degree, and could not be a rock star because he takes baths more than once a week.

I... I don't get it. Like, he stands up on his soap box for a hour and 15 minutes, and when he finally does meander around to actual economics, he tells half truths and leaves important factors out. Like, he was talking about how Bush would probably mention in his State of the Union address that we should reduce dependency on foreign oil, and that it was bull because we, as consumers shouldn't care where our products come from. I mean, its true to a certain extent, but he's like, ignoring political climate. I mean, the United States isn't exactly beloved by the primary oil producers of the world right now, y'know?

He has this annoying habit of saying "Right?" after every sentence, as well as the annoying habit of saying "Economics is fun, right? Everyone's changed their major to economics, right?" at least four times each class.

On the plus side, the sauce really does help and I thank Shay for giving me such a tip. I actually had a teacher in highschool that finished every sentence with "Okay." We always joked about having a drinking game where you took a shot after every time he said it. We'll be trying this game out in class this Tuesday.

If he's so biased, do what a bunch of conservative college students did and record him. Then send the tape to Media Matters or some other liberal site and watch as his career goes straight down the shitter.
