You call your posts here at math-teach "having a discussion"?

And who were these people? Think about it. You condemn all those

teach or otherwise work in the public school system as all members of
your hated mafia. What you refuse to get is that *by your own words as
to who are the members of your hated mafia*, it is inevitable that
some of those who were and are for keeping the exemptions are part of
your hated mafia.
