Dayshavoo all over again!! Teachers in Michigan call in sick to protest right- to –work bill!! We’ve seen these same tactics used in Chicago, Wisconsin if anyone still thinks it’s about education is delusional it’s simply about Power!!

The former NEA top lawyer Bob Chanin speaking to NEA members reveals the attitude and the arrogance of Unions!! Quote:

Despite what some among us would like to believe it is not because of our creative ideas. It is not because of the merit of our positions. It is not because we care about children and it is not because we have a vision of a great public school for every child. NEA and its affiliates are effective advocates because we have power!!

Homer would never spit on the street, well unless I had eaten something that disagreed with my taste buds and there wasn't a patch of grass around. Naturally spitting on the street is much better thab spitting on the sidewalk. However I will pee in the woods behind a tree as opposed to the street, sidewalk or the afformentioned grass.

Speaking of conservatives having nervous breakdowns, I am thinking of hosting a relive The Karl Rove Meltdown party right here on this thread one night.

We could drink lots of beer and enjoy swapping videos of his now infamous election night debacle. Questions? Comments? Suggestions?

We thought they were 'holiday presents'? Do you have the meanings wrong? Look at all the advertising?

How many meals could be provided by absent fathers? Why aren't you wailing about WHY there are so many who need meals? There's an Inauguration Ceremony every four years - folks lose their jobs, and dead-beat dads abandon their kids, every day.

The First Lady's job is to entertain, and from what I hear she does a creditable turn at the punch bowl. Even if she does occasionally knock over the dessert display, and land in the Champagne Fountain...

Many states also are resisting another key element of the health care reform law's coverage expansion. To date, 21 states have told federal authorities they won't create health insurance exchanges, which will be the online marketplaces for people to comparison shop for health plans and learn whether they qualify for tax credits or Medicaid benefits. The federal government will have to operate exchanges in states that don't build their own.
