For the democratic party of hate God and hate Jews, I wonder how they are feeling right now.
I saw the democratic convention. I know how much they despise God and Jerusalem..
How do you piss off a public union teacher?
Say" God Bless You" or "Shalom".

I saw the con group hissy fit. It was amazing they chose not to thanks our troops for their service and sacrifice, but, rather, only mention other things that were important to them. Chickenhawk rugby, the weak leader of their damaged party, was the worst offender.

Chicago schools are among the worst in the country and the city murder rate is at a all time high. We need to pay the union thugs that enabled this even more!

Chicago is turning into Camden NJ where mothers chop the heads off of their 10 years olds because of the drug problem there. Is there something going on that nobody wants to talk about? Maybe the godless democrats know. Maybe the 25th in math and science strikers(they got guts, Sheesh) know. They don't even correct bad grammar anymore in the classroom. They are money grubbing cowards.
But to Obama I say "God Bless You" and "Shalom" (He hates that, that miserable little prick)

A teacher's union, trying to gain more benefits by holding the children hostage. I would think that the highest paid teachers in the United States would be happy with what they have, talk about greedy. All this is an attempt to hold the parents of the city hostage, to force exasperated parents, who need to work, to force the city to cave into these ludicrous demands

Pathetic is the common sense thing to say about these teachers and their thug union.Emanuel needs to get some nuts like Reagan did with AT controllers.48 hrs. to get back to work or your fired. But that wont happen because the teachers union is in bed with KING HUSSEIN.If KING HUSSEIN was a true leader he would take a page out of Reagan's book and order them back to work but there you go again he wont do it.Wont get involved because of union support. The system is hundreds of millions in debt,the teachers there are way over paid for the amount of work that they don't get done.If Chi gives in to the thug/corrupt union then hopefully Chi will reap what it sows and become like all the California towns, BANKRUPT.

Why doesn't the teacher's union say what it really wants - The PUBLIC to pay more so their already bloated salaries can go up at the expense of taxpayers. I'm sure all of the people who have to take time off work to stay with their kids REALLY support the fat, lazy, incompetent teacher corps that have some of the worst results in the nation. It's bad enough that they are overpaid already, they want a job guarantee regardless of performance in addition to the 16% raise. They should ALL BE FIRED. Hold a lottery and replace the schools with Charters. The city would save millions, and the high paid dead weight don't care fat a$$e$ can see how the rest of us live, i.e. without free everything courtesy of the taxpayer. Since schools are paid by property taxes, everyone will be affected as increased taxes are passed on to renters and directly hit homeowners. Face it people - The government is evil and your enemy. Vote for LESS evil. The unions are now officially the enemy of the public.

the reality is , those that make a LIVING TODAY WAGE,you have to gross over $60,000 a year for 2000 hours ..anything less and your being used, abused,the reality is all government workers for the most part get a living wage, and benefits ,and rightly so... but take note when competition enters the picture the postal service looses,american manufacturing cant compete effectively,so they loose,and the simple truth is THE $10 AN HOUR AMERICAN WORKER CANT AFFORD OR ABSORB THE can make $33,000 ,no tax ,on welfare freebies..government can no longer afford it ,and neither can the so called middle class,any increase in anything brings down the middle to sub standard welfare income.THE REAL CULPRIT IS 45 YEARS OF OVERSPENDING,waste and taxes.if you can count take a look at your income AFTER TAXES , bills and costs and .YOU PAY FOR ALL OF IT,from welfare to every retired president,congressman ,senator, fireman,teacher,.judge ,policeman etc etc....AND ALL THEIR BENEFITS....

FDR (obama's hero):

Roosevelt rejected government unionism. He told the head of the Federation of Federal Employees in 1937 that collective bargaining "cannot be transplanted into the public service. The very nature and purposes of government make it impossible for administrative officials to represent fully or to bind the employer" because "the employer is the whole people, who speak by means of laws."
