The wealthy donate hundreds if millions of dollars to fund cancer research, provide medical facilities, provide funds for homeless shelters and places for battered women to go. There are buildings all over Dallas with wealthy peoples names on them for their contributions that make things like medical research available for every person in the country including the likes of that fat b^%$h. Why don’t these idiots go live in a third world country with no wealth and see how they like it. I’m sick of them. I like wealthy people. They do share their wealth in many ways without being forced.
It's time for 'teachers' to start sharing their wealth with those less fortunate...
Any relation to Bertha?
There are places in the country where if you don’t have AC for summer school, you could kill students and teachers. I think last summer in Texas there were several weeks in a row that were above 100 degrees every day. One summer when I was in Iowa we had a solid week when the daytime temperature was between 105 and 107.
I’d say that if came to a shooting war, ms. Lewis is a pretty big target. She should therefor think very carefully about glass houses and throwing stones. People who are threatened with being killed are likely to try and defend themselves with deadly force.
“They are also both Jewish. Raised Lutheran, Lewis converted in the early 1990s when she was looking for something spiritual and says she was drawn by the idea that you could question God.
If I was Jewish, this would make me wince. I’m not Jewish, and it still makes me wince; what the heck does she mean by this?
“They don’t even work 9 months a year. I added up all the days the kids were actually in school, and it averaged 6 months.”
Here in NJ we have 180 days of school (about 6.5 hours, less one for lunch); I expect that to be bumped up a few days because there is something stinging about saying “work less than half the year”. The public education industry has transformed a part-time second income into a lucrative racket here.
“unions are just politicians giving money to themselves and overporked thugs like her feeding off of the serfs.”
One aspect of this issue that is overlooked by too many people is that many believe the Dems represent the teachers’ unions, while in fact it is the other way around. The Democratic Party is the political arm of the teachers’ unions (specifically teachers’ unions); that is why their token mouthpiece Obama, in dealing with this economic crisis, still has to give a shout-out for hundreds of thousands of new teachers. He and his party work directly for the teachers’ unions, and those public comments should have revealed this to any doubter.
One reason why Chris Christie is popular with taxpaying voters here in NJ is that he has clearly understood this for many years, he has publicly stated this, and he has taken action to protect taxpayers from the predatory teachers’ unions. EVERY OTHER ISSUE is secondary to the Dems; blacks and Hispanics are just cattle on which the unions base their demands for more money (despite the fact that large segments of both of these populations are functionally illiterate), and the unions will see that more of them are imported every year just to keep warm bodies in classrooms. Their actions are very destructive to other unions (the trade unions lose their work to illegals, and the cops and firemen lose their jobs when the larger teachers’ unions have to be paid first during fiscal tightening); but since they own the Dem Party it goes on and on.
This is the woman leading the walkout of 26,000 public school teachers in Chicago. Karen Lewis, head of the Chicago Teachers Union, is a loud-mouthed social justice radical whose Big Labor racket would rather abandon 350,000 children to the streets than accept merit-based pay,
teacher evaluations, and a 16 percent pay raise. The school board had already caved considerably on the unions demands, but as the Chicago Sun-Times put it: From the get-go, the union seemed intent on striking.
Last night, Lewis mocked public charter schools that are defying the strike and doing their jobs as not real schools.
Derision is her specialty. Her tirades at teachers confabs are infamous. Dont feel sorry for her when she moans about Mayor Rahm Emanuels bully tactics and trash mouth. Lewis has one of her own. Here she is bragging about smoking weed in college, cracking homophobic slurs about Education Secretary Arne Duncans lisp, and whining about teachers being demonized at a social justice conference:
“’Continuing her pacing as she lectured about teaching for social justice, Lewis highlighted good differences, using herself as an example.
I am the only black woman in the class of 1974 from Dartmouth College. Woo. People are impressed. Let me tell you, I spent those years smoking lots of weed, self-medicating. Self-medicating, thank you. Sounds like you all did to. Oh, Im sorry there are kids here, I wasnt suppose to say that right? Too late!”
Heres Lewis chumming it up with former Communist Party leader Michael Klonsky, who praises her as a fist-in-the-air, crowd-rousing, dynamic union leader. Asked to explain increasing dissatisfaction with public education, Lewis blames lack of respect for government union teachers leaders on lower class students and students of color. Its always someone elses fault:
” Karen Lewis” — in the youtube she looks, overfed....
Paging Captain Hyperbole....
I guess that I worked in a lot of lethal places, and never knew it.
Compared to other people in Chicago, teachers are rich.
Pity McCarthy didn't get to finish the job of clearing the S.O.B.s out.
