Barack Obama, our next President

It's quite common for women who stay at home to raise their children or work part-time to supplment their family's income to depend on their husband's employment benefits.

You were warned right off the bat that if you didn't join the union and ever needed legal protection for any reason, you'd be on your own.
Because common sense took a vacation in the school system a long time ago and school administrators stopped growing a spine...and unions took their place.
That "legal protection" argument is a bunch of BS to scare fools.

First thing, lawsuits are brought against the deep pockets, the school district and not the teacher.

Second thing, if you are sued, or worse yet face criminal charges, you want a real attorney, not one dredged up by the union.

Actually, many non-union jobs pay far better than the type of work that is unionized.

And many non-union companies in unionized industries pay union wages to keep the union out.

Good point.

Many men with high-paying professional jobs rely on the medical insurance furnished to their schoolteacher wives. Their employer essentially gets a free ride on the back of the taxpayer.

What a great country.

But here’s the good stuff. Breaking down results to Republican respondents only, their positions are as follows. By 47-37, they oppose letting the current payroll tax cut expire (an Obama position). By 68-26, they’re against cutting Medicare spending. By 61-33, they oppose cutting Medicaid spending (yes, Medicaid spending!). By 66-28, they’re against eliminating the home-mortgage interest deduction. By 72-25, they oppose eliminating the charitable contribution deduction. And by 56-44, less overwhelming but still very much a landslide in political terms, they just say no to raising the Medicare eligibility age.
Even Republicans can be foolish enough to believe in free lunch.

Maybe you should blame Obama for throwing Susan Rice under the bus.

Maybe Obama didn't want Susan Rice in the first place, but lacked the balls to tell her so and needed Republican help.

Maybe the folks at Goldman Sachs wanted someone else.

Hard to decide the place one would least like to live between Detroit, Cleveland, and Chicago.

Companies must need to pay a premium to lure qualified employees to move there.

Sister Kathryn Lust may have her failings but she's not mugging people, on Food Stamps, selling herself or drugs, doesn't own a Free Cellphone and shoot stray cats for target practice or bet on dog fights. At least I thinks so.

Besides, she makes a mean pizza.

Michigan Police Scratch Their Heads At Fox Contributor’s Post-Punch Media Tour
If Fox News contributor Steven Crowder wants justice after being assaulted during right-to-work protests in Michigan this week, he sure has a weird way of showing it. That’s the word from Michigan State Police, who are ready to investigate and prosecute the man who punched Crowder multiple times on camera Tuesday — if only Crowder would let them.
The video of Crowder taking those punches has gone viral, even as Crowder’s story about the circumstances has started to unravel. Regardless of exactly what happened leading up top the punches, however, there’s a potential crime caught on film and according to Michigan State Police, Crowder has so far shown no interest in having it investigated.
“There is video footage of him being assaulted. We don’t know who the suspect is, but we could do a several month investigation and find the suspect,” Inspector Gene Adamczyk, spokesperson for the state police, told TPM on Thursday.“But if Mr. Crowder is not going to prosecute, we have not gained anything, we’ve wasted resources.”
So far Crowder has not sought out police help after he was hit. Adamczyk pointed out he’s instead turned the video into a national conservative media tour.
“I saw Mr. Crowder’s interview on Sean Hannity and he wants to have an MMA-sanctioned fight with this individual,” he said. Crowder told Hannity that if the suspect doesn’t come forward for the MMA fight (which he said would be held for charity), Crowder would “press charges.”
Adamczyk did not sound impressed by the plan.
“You can’t leverage the law for personal gain,” he said.“Either you’re the victim, or you’re not. So if he’s the victim of an assault, and he wants to file a complaint, we will definitely investigate it.”
Meanwhile, media reports have poked holes in the original, edited video Crowder posted online after he was punched. The New York Times reported “a look at the video broadcast on the Sean Hannity show appears to show quite clearly that [Crowder] left out an important section of the footage when he put together his edit.”
The unedited footage shows “the man who punched Mr. Crowder being knocked to the ground seconds before and then getting up and taking a swing at the comedian,” the Times reported.
Adamczyk doesn’t understand why Crowder wouldn’t report the crime to the police and get the perpetrator prosecuted. He stressed that the MSP will not go forward with an investigation unless a crime is reported, and “there are all types of personal reasons” people sometimes don’t report a crime, he said.
“If somebody broke into your house, wouldn’t you immediately report it to the police? If someone assaulted you or your family member wouldn’t you report it immediately to the police?” Adamczyk said.“Well, why wouldn’t you, unless there’s a personal agenda there.

That is the absolute dumbest thing out there, the police don't need his permission to make an arrest.
