Teachers & dogma

Regarding Jim Horton's "Teachers unions addicted" Letter to the Editor (The Signal, May 2):

I don't know if Horton's claim that California teachers are the highest-paid in the nation is true, but if it is, it is also true that we have one of the highest cost-of-living indexes in the country. Try buying a house here for what one would cost most anywhere else.

Plus California teachers must deal with more non-English-speaking students than elsewhere, not to mention gang-bangers.

In his diatribe, Mr. Horton goes on to write about "global warming and other socialistic dogma." My dictionary defines socialism as "Public collective ownership ..." and so on.

Global warming is an obvious, observable fact that scientists agree upon. The only argument is whether it is just part of a natural cycle, or caused by man-made activities.

How does Horton figure global warming is part of socialistic dogma?
