Star Trek 3020-a: The Delight of Betsy Combier

Pay attention to the following. It all ties into the topic of today's blog post.

UPDATE 10/21/17 7:01 PM: Since no one has gotten the Star Trek reference (Gee, I thought ALL teachers were into Star Trek). 

In Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan Captain Kirk beams down to the Genesis planet to meat up with Carol Marcus. The Enterprise is in orbit, crippled by the barrage Khan unleashed using the hijacked USS Reliant. Spock using code to inform Kirk of ongoing repairs uses days instead of hours to let Kirk know how long it will take to facilitate repairs knowing that Khan will be listening in. Spock was using code. Basically saying the OPPOSITE of what is true!!!

When they beam aboard the Enterprise, 2 HOURS LATER, this conversation takes place:

Saavik: You lied!
Spock: I exaggerated. 

Perhaps I should have used this Seinfeld quote: 

"If every instinct you have is wrong, then the opposite would have to be right."
- Jerry, to George, in "The Opposite"
Sorry for the mass confusion.

Kirk: Kirk to Enterprise.
Spock: Spock here.
Kirk: Captain Spock, damage report.
Spock: Admiral, if we go "by the book". like Lieutenant Saavik, hours could seem like days.
Kirk: I read you captain. Let's have it.
Spock: The situation is grave, Admiral. We won't have main power for six "days". Auxiliary power has temporarily failed. Restoration may be possible, in two "days". By the book, Admiral.

Got it?

If you hire Betsy Combier and her legal team, you have made a great decision! One that will ensure you many more years of teaching.

Betsy Combier is one of the finest legal minds of our time when it comes to defending teachers. 

Ethically, Betsy Combier is beyond reproach.

Betsy Combier is not a clown.

If you have Betsy Combier write your Article 75 appeal and notice there is mention that your probable cause rights were violated, well GOSH DARN, you can feel as if you won Powerball.

A judge has never shot down Betsy Combier's probable cause theories.

Betsy Combier is 100% selfless and never puts herself first. 

Betsy Combier does not chase windmills. 

Betsy Combier is always truthful. 

Betsy Combier will never tear down others to build herself up. 

Betsy Combier is always truthful and transparent about past cases she has been involved in. 

You will not regret your association with Betsy Combier.

Spock: Do not grieve, Admiral. It is logical. The needs of the many, outweigh...
Kirk: The needs of the few.
Spock: Or the one.

Bizarre. I hate Star Trek. I like Betsey though. Speak plainly and explain your point of view. That I can respect, not this nonsense.

Makes sense to me. Then again, everytning I say is satirical so it should make sense.

Regulation 46-A.

If this is considered satire your standards are very low indeed. Why are so many socially immature inept people enamored of Star Trek, whereas intellectuals like myself prefer SpongeBob SquarePants? (That's satire by the way.)

That's not satire. That's sarcasm. Satire is something more along the lines of you not understanding why teachers dig star trek. You know, like, "I just don't understand why teachers like Star Trek. They all must be stupid". THAT'S satire. THAT'S funny.

Nothing on this post is funny or satirical. Let's ask Betsy what she thinks.
