Guess that means I fraternize with the enemy. Guess that means there's a cell at Gitmo with my name on it. I've been called dangerous before, but never in this context. Maybe, since I'm not really a "teacher", they'll let me out early. You know, after only a few shocks.
How sick and pathetic is that? I did hear about that comment...Joe Scarborough was talking about it a few minutes ago.Is there nothing the PIGS won't stoop to to be just plan disgusting?
Well ... maybe they do have a point ... Al Qaeda is obviously an irrational reactionary conservative organization, and the republican party is an irrational reactionary conservative organization ... teachers unions are collective liberal (conservative read: leftist, or communist) organizations capable of bargaining for the rights of an individual in a peaceful, rational manner ... so in the eyes of republicans yes, yes they are more dangerous.
I have a daughter who is a teacher and I can tell you she works her butt off to give her kids the best education they can get. What has been holding up the teachers isn't the teachers unions, it's the Federal government and that stupid "No Child Left Behind" Act. The reason it doesn't work is because it isn't funded, among other reasons. So, the school districts take the hit. The poorest school districts, whose schools are in the most trouble had to lay off teachers in order to implement the requirements to meet this federally unfunded program. Yeah, our school system needs a lot of work, even the teachers know that. Getting rid of the unions isn't going to do that. When remarks like that come out, it is a stain on the whole teaching profession. The teachers are the ones who are looked on as the failures and this affords them zero respect from the public and the kids. I can remember a time when being a teacher was considered an honorable profession. Now, they are nothing more than a profession that is protected by terrorists? Teachers don't get paid what they are worth already, if they didn't have unions they would get paid less and who is going to want to teach then? I'm also sick of hearing how easy the teachers have it easy because they have summers "off". That's bull. During most of the summer, many of these teachers are doing coaching, teaching drivers ed, or working another job for the summer to make enough money to get through the year. They have lousy health care plans and work long hours at home after school is over while grading papers and working on lesson plans. I'd like to take Hannity and see him do half the work that the average teacher does for as little pay as they get and see how he likes it. He'd be the first one running to the union to try to get better benefits. He's such an asshat.
Wow. I never realized my Mother was such a dangerous woman.She would have been proud to be dissed in such a way.RIP, Mama. I miss you every day.
I'm not surprised one bit. This rhetoric should be expected. Right wing retards are afraid of their own shadow. You know comedian's scare the beejeebuzz outta them too!Cliff's humor, America's nightmare. Do not let your children watch Steve Colbert or Jon Stewart. Rosie be damned!ech, typical neocon bedwetting.Alas, but it's odd. Ass clowns like George Bush and George Alan, they are comfortable with?
