Thousands of striking Chicago teachers will march again on Saturday to keep the pressure on Mayor Rahm Emanuel to wrap up an agreement with their union so they can end a strike that has closed the nation's third largest school district for a week.

Why does Valerie Jarrett, Michelle Obama's former employer and Barack Obama's Senior WH Advisor have a FULL SECRET SERVICE DETAIL while on vacation on Martha's Vineyard, while Ambassador Chris Stevens had a smaller contingent in an UNSTABLE VIOLENT MIDDLE EAST COUNTRY LIKE LIBYA DURING THE 9/11 ANNIVERSARY!!!!!!!!!!

Leave it to Union Scum to go on STRIKE and throw the kids under the bus while the Nation Suffers through Obama's High Unemployment. Democrats are the American Taliban.

AND Obama's pornstar mother was actually PG by Frank Marshall Davis when her & Obama Sr went to Kenya. They wouldn't let her back on the airplane when it was time to go home because she was so PG. Hence the little bundle-of-joy was born in Mombassa as witnessed by one Grandma Sarah Obama. He was born a Brit before his Indonesian adoption.

Everyone else is working harder to support the 48% of people (obama supporters) that DO Not Pay a Fricken DIME of Income taxes. Then union scum is asked to work a few more hours of their 9 month work year and they STRIKE! It's unbelievable.

fire them all. They are not worth what we over pay them now. Based on results they should return money to tax payers.

Look ahead a few years. The city administration keeps giving in to greedy union demands which is raising cost for tax payers of Chicago.

There are fewer and fewer tax payers in Chicago these days. welfare whores don't pay taxes, dead black kids don't grow up to pay taxes, more and more empty houses and vacant house lots in chicago which means no one is paying taxes on empty lots.

Bottom line is da city has been mismanaged , going broke, so it's crazy to make more promises to greedy unions that the city will not be able to pay.

Look at Detroit that's where chicago is heading a second class Detroit, only the black gangs in Chicago have killed a lot more black kids in the city.
Say where is that lame Al "not so" sharpton these days?? He sticks is fat face in front of every TV camera in sight when a Black child get killed in Florida, Detroit.

So al, Chicago has over 300 black childs killed just this year, lots of TV camera so where is you???
bet he don't know where Chicago is.

The silence on this issue from the lame stream media and the Chicago community is deafening.

I am ashamed to be from chicago.

Republican Jesus™ is very different than the Jesus you and I are familiar with. First off, he is White. Not just white, but White. Republican Jesus™ has a special place in his heart for America. Specifically, White America. Do you doubt this? Ask yourself why anyone who believes in a colorblind Jesus would even conceive of praying for the death of Obama? No, only those who follow Republican Jesus™ would even think that such a prayer could, or should, be answered. If you are currently thinking that racism has nothing to do with the unprecedented hatred of Obama, go away, I’m talking to the grownups.

Union Teachers are Filth. And they are 25th at being clean, just like our poor children's math and science scores. I say flog those shitty greedy stupid teachers in public. Let every taxpayer have a whack. Or two.

The Union paid good money to buy the Democratic Party operatives in Chicago City Hall, Springfield, and Washington.

Parents are lucky the Union didn't demand a 100% salary increase and a four month long School Year. Parents and children have Zero representation in Chicago City Hall. Voters screwed them.

As with most unions, the Chicago Teachers Union is 'all about me; right now!'

Instead of writing a contract that makes future fiscal sense for the City and the School District, they are going to right a contract that is unsustainable by the City of Chicago and they are all going to be out of work anyway when Chicago gets to the point where they can't fulfill the oblibation.

It happened to the UAW- Those that fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it.

They make over $70,000. a year, and all they produce are ignorant gangbangers. Even in the white neighborhoods they have many gang members.
