just quit teaching because had to worry about getting knifed by his students and any attempts to discipline would land him up in court.

Probably more irritated by our unfair to US workers by our trade policies. After 25 years of struggling finally could compete with the Japanese, so Clinton brings the Chinese into the picture.

"--up·beat adj. Informal. 1. Optimistic: an upbeat business forecast. 2. Happy; cheerful."
