This Sebastian is the real deal and that’s no joke

I don't know how schoolteachers manage to do what they do and do it as well as they do, given the obstacles tossed in their way by politicians, bureaucrats, special interest groups, ideologues, social experimenters and assorted other navel-gazers - none of whom could carry their book bag.

What does one do about a candidate whose tax plan would send America into the fiscal abyss -who flaps lips about not making good on the national debt? Should we be investing in the makers of Xanax and Klonopin? And on the personal side, are there enough benzodiazepines to go around?
