As a non-member of the NEA/OEA/local teachers union (excuse me, professional association) I am forced by our contract to support them financially through an agency shop agreement. I get a little bit of it back, but I have to pay them about $600 a year. For that, I get their publications delivered to my house. The latest one from OEA contains a nifty little pullout voters guide. Strangely enough, every candidate I favor is on their NO list, and every candidate I am sickened by is on their YES list. It's always nice to have my positions confirmed.
