California teachers union video shows rich man urinating on poor to make taxes case

An animated video produced by a California teachers union uses the crude imagery of a rich man urinating on common folks to decry what narrator Ed Asner claims is rich people’s refusal to pay their share of taxes.

The crude footage is part of a “Tax the rich: An animated fairy tale,” an eight-minute video written and directed by California Federation of Teachers’ communications director Fred Glass. In it, Asner describes a mythical land that seems to represent the U.S. and how it financed its services. He says the rich sought to evade taxes and put their money into “Wall Street”– yet another clue to the real identity of the storybook country.

“Don’t worry,” Asner says, speaking for the rich.“This is good for you, too. Because it will trickle down from us to you.”

The word “trickle” is illustrated with the bodily function metaphor, which Kyle Olson, founder of the Michigan-based Education Action Group, said left him disgusted.

They should have used obama for the little guy.Cause hes just pissing on working class Americans to give to his welfare base.

California should be removed from the United states. Did you see the California dock worker strike cost the hard working Americans billions in their strike at the docks ? And its going to cost even more to try to catch up to what they stalled as far as moving products.BILLIONS BY THE GREEDY UNIONS AGAIN..Thanks obama for supporting these union thugs.

The problem is public employee union that donate to the parties they 'negotiate' with. They subvert democracy.
