I'd like to thank all the Republicans and Tea Bag Heads for ruining our schools. I'm hopeful that as Pleasanton's demographics continue change, the conservatives in this town will get scared and move off to some backwards town in the Central Valley where they can live out their GOP fantasies. They can elect Joe the Plumber as their king.

You sound angry. You also sound quite judgmental (Tea bag Heads??) and uninformed. And labeling people who live in the Central Valle as "backwards" sounds a bit politically incorrect, yes? You also sound "hopeful". Well how is the "hope" and change working for you? And in re: to the demographics changing. I absolutely welcome those wonderful Asian and Indian families to Pleasanton. They boost the scores in our district and bring their wonderful conservative values with them.

Hate to break it to you but not everyone who voted NO is a conservative. Please do not ONLY give all the credit to the conservatives for demanding fiscal responsibility form the PUSD. I think that is something both the sides can agree on.

And as much as you attempt to make this a right vs left issue or make those "Tea baggers" feel utterly miserable with your uneducated, hostile post,......well, it just won't work.

Studies have shown that Conservatives are generally happier than people like you, Fred. Check out the source below!

Please note, Fred I would not call you a Liberal. I have liberal friends and Fred, you are no liberal! You are just a down right unhappy individual.

Thank you, Fan of Educators. It has been a really emotional and draining week for everyone. Kind words do a lot to ease anxiety and frustration.
