Liberals detest clarity because it doesn't allow for obfuscation.
Therefore, codifying the rights and responsibilities of government and its citizens into a Constitution bothers the hell out of them.
Just ask the Magic Negro.
So... the founders of the original US Constitution were liberals?!?!?!

wow. Now THIS is a new one!

John Stossel's 'Stupid in America'
By JOHN STOSSEL
Jan. 13, 2006
"Stupid in America" is a nasty title for a program about public education, but some nasty things are going on in America's public schools and it's about time we face up to it.
Kids at New York's Abraham Lincoln High School told me their teachers are so dull students fall asleep in class. One student said, "You see kids all the time walking in the school smoking weed, you know. It's a normal thing here."
We tried to bring "20/20" cameras into New York City schools to see for ourselves and show you what's going on in the schools, but officials wouldn't allow it <<---<<<

Interesting...

I remember this too.

"The next time some teachers union twit tells you their protests are about the “children” be sure you remember this clip and the words of the NEA union boss (video!):

The IRS declined comment for this story.

A yearlong audit by the agency's inspector general found that IRS agents had improperly targeted conservative political groups for additional and sometimes onerous scrutiny when those groups applied for tax-exempt status.

Safe environments would be nice but student violence has become an epidemic because liberals want to "leave them alone".
No, liberals want the government to 'leave the kids alone'. Teachers have always been the primary disciplinarians in the traditional classroom. When the state intervenes by sending in the police or hires private armed guards to patrol the school corridors it undermines the authority of teachers for maintaining an orderly environment where learning can take place . In that context, young people are smart enough to know who they need to obey and who they can safely afford to ignore. It's the person with the big gun not the person with the book who gets the respect now.

Fox News?
Bwahahahaha
Holly Paz, who until recently was a top deputy in the division that handles applications for tax-exempt status, told congressional investigators she reviewed 20 to 30 applications. Some requests languished for more than a year without action.
The account undercuts the narrative that senior officials only learned of the practice after it had already started in the Cincinnati office.

Social Security taxes are to pay benefits to current recipients and do not convey any future benefits. All workers should either be required to pay into the system or have the right to opt out.

Why should teachers get special privileges?

The first move to salvage Social Security should be to require freeloaders like you to pay.

Most of the state of PA mining engineers of 40 years ago weren't degreed engineers either but inherited the jobs from the dads, uncles etc.
Now go play with your trollmates.
Still illegal to call oneself an "Engineer" without being licensed.

It would be legal, however, for his title to be "Supervisor, Engineering Department."

How about the factory owner who managed to sneak an additional three floors onto his factory, roughly doubling it's size.

No one noticed that the building got taller or that 1000 more people began showing up there for work daily.

And we buy the sht those poor bastardos make, wear it once then toss it or maybe use it to wipe our azzes with after we crap in clean water.

Teachers are made out to be the bad guys anymore.

WE have to get "control" of the students!
Someway, somehow .

Parents are afraid to do much, with Social Services, CPS agents

Matter of logic, Hawley: we're paying approximately 13% into STRS; we do not pay an additional 7% into SS because we are not allowed to add SS benefits to STRS at retirement. Other jobs outside the system, e.g., running the pool, summer theatre, etc., SS are paid, but will not be collected. We may also have private 401Ks and annuities at our discretion. Not all states are the same. Do yourself a favor and try to LEARN something before you make a further ass or yourself with your assumptions.

No wonder MJ bleached his skin the SPLABOOS are just aaawwww whatever Affirmative Action Has Helped White Women More Than Anyone In the coming days, the Supreme Court is expected to rule in a potentially landmark case on the constitutionality of affirmative action. The original lawsuit was filed on behalf of Abigail Fisher, a woman who claims that she was denied admission to the University of Texas because she is white. But study after study shows that affirmative action helps white women as much or even more than it helps men and women of color. Ironically, Abigail Fisher is exactly the kind of person affirmative actions most helps in America today.

Originally, women weren’t even included in legislation attempting to level the playing field in education and employment. The first affirmative action measure in America was an executive order signed by President Kennedy in 1961 requiring that federal contractors “take affirmative action to ensure that applicants are employed, and employees are treated during employment, without regard to their race, creed, color, or national origin.” In 1967, President Johnson amended this and a subsequent measure to include sex, recognizing that women also faced many discriminatory barriers and hurdles to equal opportunity. Meanwhile, the Civil Rights Act of 1964 only included “sex” in the list of prohibited forms of discrimination because conservative opponents of the legislation hoped including it would sway moderate members of Congress to withdraw their support for the bill. Still, in a nation where both white women and black people were once considered property, not allowed to own property themselves, and not allowed to vote, it was clear to all those seeking fairness and opportunity that both groups faced monumental obstacles.
