When Did Public Union Teachers Become So Sacrosanct?

by lewwaters

Teacher 1Whether we realize it or not, we all teach. Be it our children, our friends and acquaintances, co-workers or just people we meet in our day to day dealings, in some manner or another, we teach them.

But, that does not make us “teachers,” those who have chosen to enter the profession to impart knowledge in any one of our schools where we must send our children to learn reading, writing, arithmetic, history and other relevant subjects in hopes that when they grow up, they will have the knowledge to become functional adults ready to contribute to society, raise families of their own and pass along their own teaching with who they interact with.

Obama Campaign Continues to Slam Romney Governor’s Term, Ignoring Obama’s Term

Mitt Romney was the Massachusetts governor from January 2, 2003 to January 4, 2007 which is also a period when Democrats were claiming how bad everything in the country was under President George W. Bush and making all sort of wild claims of how it was so unbearable and only they could fix it.

They successfully seized all congressional power in the 2006 election and took over both houses of congress in January 2007. Although we might expect some media attention to how the Democrats have spearheaded the country’s economy, we have come to see it will not happen as they supply cover for the Democrats. So I will do what an unwilling media refuses to do.

Middle Class Lady “Exhausted” Defending Obama

by lewwaters

Obama’s rambling attempt at a snow job reply can be seen HERE

From his reply I hear, “you’re better off now, you just don’t know it.” Obviously, she doesn’t know the “Great Recession” has been over for a year.

Question is, if it has been “over,” why is the economy still in such poor shape and getting worse?
