We have to get rid of centralized education. It is a hotbed for political propaganda aimed at our innocent children. You can see what it is doing to our kids by looking at the kids on the school bus calling that poor woman a fat slob. That viciousness comes from Michelle Obama's infatuation with overweight people. The propaganda is teaching them to be communist-like without feelings. They think they are justified because they feel protected by Michelle Obama's "hate fatty" agenda. It's got to end. Centralization and communism are synonymous when it comes to education. I blame public school teachers for making our kids heartless communist-like haters.

Rahm Emmanuel is facing a problem that affects ALL big city public school districts (including here in Philly). A declining school-age population + more people graduating from college entering education.
You see what the problem is; too many teachers and too few students = less clout for the AFT, NEA, and other unions that represent public school teachers. This is the major reason for the call for smaller class size.

It is always ab amazing thing when the people who are used in reality as voting suckers are denied by those who claim to support them 100%. The media says nothing. Here you ave a so called progressive mayor screwing over the unions while just a couple short years ago as a White House power broker helped to cost the citizens so much to protect unions and pay for unions. We are still paying for GM and the the rest of the auto industry as an example. Progressives do this. Fast Eddie Rendell did that to his own city workers while not saying a word to Obama paying unions off. They are liars. They are cheats. It is power they crave. the agenda is a way of obtaining it. It is a shame there is no courage to eliminate them and their families. They will understand that. Alas, we the peons who at least tried to live by some rules , are the real victims. We pay and pay some more. And will be charged more again and get less as we try to retire.

Yep, the left is losing their funding sources as well as the unions, which are nothing more now than fund raisers for the marxist left.

Most Democrats blame Rahm's close relationship with Nancy Pelosi for completely destroying the Obama Presidency.
They both played Obama for a Fool before he had the lay of the land in DC.

Bingo...Let the teachers who don't want to teach leave and be replaced. The GOOD teachers will be thrilled to be rid of the Union.
Unemployment at 8.5%. Anyone with dignity and honor would jump at the chance.

And these f***ing teachers are paid with tax dollars to boot.

Again, these unions better be careful. They better pray Wisconsin was an isolated case.

Interesting theory. But it's gone too far. Democrats went so far left they now face possible annihilation as a party. Honorable democrats will go down too. Plus people are getting tired of DC bullshit in general. We don't want to deal with RINO's anymore either.

This morning the news reported that every household in Illinois owes $41,000 in overpromised, unfunded public employee pensions schemes. Every household in Chicago is stuck with $62,000 in City and State Pension debt. Imagine being an Illinois Parent or Grand Parent voted for the Union owned politicians who did this to their OWN children!

Woody was a seer.

He saw the coming of the TEA Party.
