Ever thought of getting rid of all the ESL (English as a second language) classes and teachers as well as the illegals attending the local schools? Oh no, not politically correct. Well, then you have two options, pay for it or do away with it. As for the state cuts, welcome to the real world. Schools and teachers have been living in an employment dream world for years and now all of a sudden they are screaming because they might have to deal with reality like the rest of us sound like the unions in Wisconsin. They are grossly overpaid, have benefits better than most of us and don't want to pay a little more out of their own pockets to keep their benefits. The states are broke. Wake up world, all of you having been living in debt and are just now waking up to the news that your payment is now due. If you get fired do what the rest of us have to do...go and get another job or if your job is obsolete go back to school and learn another.

Isn't this the truth. We'll hate to inform them, but its time to get off their lazy behinds and find other work. Their gravy train is GONE! LOL
