    For unclear reasons the California Federation of Teachers commisioned a raving agitprop cartoon condemning "The Rich" narrated by a smarmy-voiced Ed Asner. If this was made 30 years ago it might have been interpreted as an over-the-top parody of Soviet propaganda films. But these are the times we live in.

    The teacher's union posted it here:



    Well, the CTU made their video private when non-Party members jeered at it. But you can still see it (with a skeptic's commentary) here:

    From the people who mock Republicans as mouth breathing simpletons.

    Teacher's unions really are shameless and irresponsible.

    I really feel sorry for a group that averages $70k compensation (with great benefits) a year for ~180 days of work.

    The only teachers that should be allowed to complain are the under funded inner city kind.

    I love the end where Barney Rubble and the two broads - who looked so distraught and down on their luck throughout the video - grab OWS protest signs and now they look like they have murderous revenge in their eyes.

    And there are damn few of those. The "under-funded inner city school" is mostly a liberal dem myth. The majority of inner city schools in large cities are better funded than suburban and rural public schools... and some of them are funded MUCH better... ie- Detroit, LA, Chicago, Indianapolis... their public schools are funded at like double the national average, and their teachers are some of the highest-paid teachers in the nation.

    So... if those schools are so well-funded, then how come their student performance is so poor, and why do the teachers at those schools always complain the loudest about low pay and under funding?

    Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?

    Of course a film about the evilness of rich people was narrated by a multimillionaire who lives in the richest and most technologically blessed nation in the history of mankind.

    It really isn't about "the rich" is it?

    Also, the typical person in the world, and there are billions of them, lives on under 10 U.S. dollars a day. So of course the people making 100 grand a year salary and benefits to "work" 6 months a year as babysitters with pretensions complain about "rich people." Once again, not really about the "rich" people is it? A leftist with a billion dollars wouldn't consider himself or herself to be "rich."

    From what I can gather, if this video appeals to you, the teachers union thinks you're a retard. Otherwise Ed woudn't be explaining everything in waterhead language.

    Yeah, I think those Chicago teachers who went on strike averaged like $70,000 or something.

    I always thought they got better health benefits than that. My wife does cocktails and we only pay a little less than $3000 a year for our insurance with zero deductible.

    The pensions is another thing. That's insane if they're getting that much back without having to contribute anything.

    Yeah the pension programs are ridiculous, as are the tenure rules. Some districts around the country grant tenure after 2 years. Can you imagine having your career essentially secured after two years, regardless of how well you do from that point forward?

    Momma Streak is an inner-city high school foreign language teacher. Can guaran-damn-tee ya she doesn't make $70K/ann.
    On top of that, she needs to pay for her own supplies, and needs to take classes at night and during the summer (also out-of-pocket cost) to keep up her licensure and educational credit.
    Spanky brand new shiny school. Shitty parents and abysmal teachers' union. That's where the problem really is.

    Last night, she was telling me horror stories of her 10th grade students, and their predilections towards texting during class.
    She can't do shit about it, either. Take their phones? Nope. Not anymore.
    She has to interrupt class, contact the class master, and have the delinquent escorted from the room. Repeatedly.
    Roughly 70% of her students are failing, due to the fact that the entitled little shits don't do any work. Boo hoo.

    The administration doesn't support the teachers, in fact, punishes the teachers when the snowflakes fail.
    The unions don't do shit to back their teachers when the administration does nothing to support their teachers.

    Her school is like a goddamn war zone, complete with its own city/state funded Anti-Gang task force. Yeah. Great.

    Momma Streak is more than ecstatic that she's retiring at the end of the school year. Stick a fork in her, she's done.

    5 years, accident free. And now that I'm pulling flats, I'm doing a hell of a lot less backing. I also avoid Truckstops like the plague. Wal-Marts, malls and shopping centers are generally my safe haven.

    Isn't that making fun of what somebody does for a living? I thought you hated that.
