Barack Obama, our next President

That black flag is a symbol for every Wahhabist terrorists, you moron. It represents world domination by Wahhabism, you dolt.
And, idiot, you need to educate yourself on Wahhabism. Wahhabism and freedom are diametrically opposed.
It is always a dangerous place any place where the Wahhabist terrorists are operating.
Perhaps you can explain to us why we have Wahhabist terrorists in the White House every day, especially since they openly promote being at war with the United States.
... or, was that information not in your last indoctrination session?
So, since the government of Egypt says openly they are at war with the United States, why are we giving them hundreds of billions of dollars worth of arms?
I understad it's tough being a dumbass Tea Party member but Egypt has not declared war on theUnited States.

The black flag was also adopted by some groups fighting for Libyan rebels not associated with Al Qaeda.

<quoted text>But that wouldn't be true for those teachers, instructors and administrators who came into the profession withing the past decade.
Back in the day many state employees understood up front that they would have lower wages than many in other professions but that the bennies and retirement would be far superior. I once posted about how my tea party neighbors had amassed a handsome nest egg through ordinary state union jobs in Janeville WS, her a teacher he a highway engineer of the no degree variety.
What has changed?

By the way, in most states it is highly illegal, subject to criminal penalties, for someone to call themselves an "engineer" unless they are registered by the state as a Professional Engineer, which almost always requires an appropriate college degree.

That's the only reason teachers today want more money, Homer. They are underappreciated and held accountable for everything under the sun without the liberal seat warmers in the office giving a damn about anything except their retirement and not being sued. That's the God's honest truth.
It's even worse today than it was two decades ago when the seat warmers in my schools didn't give a damn even back then.
No, I take that back. It's been that way when my older sister started teaching 10 years before I did.

When she first sent a high school student to the office for throwing spitwads in her classroom and the student returned with a note telling her to deal with it herself, she knew she had made the wrong career choice - just like me.

You just have to cope as best you can.

Progressive liberalism in public schools goes way back. Now students can curse out their teachers with absolutely no repercussions and violence among students in the public schools has become an epidemic.

Welcome to your world, Homer.

Don't know, and sure it varies from place to place and state to state.
With regard to pensions, "average" salary is not a meaningful number, because pensions are based on maximum salary earned, and teachers eligible for retirement have topped out on the salary scale.
Galt would estimate $75-80K is a good average for the pension basis.
Husband-and-wife teaching team can easily approach or exceed $200K in retirement income between pension, Social Security, and proceeds from 503(b), the equivalent of a 401(k).
Great deal!
So basically the system works, finally some good news. Any current/former teachers care to comment on all this good news?

Student teachers ARE interns, with a title.

Student teachers will likely go out of existence, just like other interns, because of recent court rulings requiring that interns be paid.

Bottom line....
Opponents of the administration got targetted and stonewalled, and friends of the administration got ushered through.
That is a felony.
So, since the FBI said the case is "solved", who got sent to prison?
pure BS.

so which of the right wing entities that were 'targeted' got their tax exempt status revoked?

none.

solved. or rather, nothing to solve.

Still makes no sense, unless you are working and not paying Social Security taxes, in which case you are getting an even better deal.

"Public school teachers in Connecticut are not covered by Social Security for their public school teaching service. Teachers and school districts make no contributions to the Social Security system for that work and teachers cannot collect benefits based on it. Instead, the state provides teachers with retirement benefits through the state Teachers' Retirement System (TRS)."

It's another racket the left have with their unions & Democrats.

They will whine, but won't tell you the pension makes up for it plenty.

The system works if you are a teacher, but not for the taxpayers.
