Teachers, unions in Wisconsin setting bad examples for children

Teachers do far more than impart knowledge to our children. They provide role models that chidren can emulate in their daily lives.

But what kind of examples are the striking teachers in Madison providing to the children there?

For starters, they abandoned the children when their puppet masters in the union called, leaving them to fend for themselves so they could take to the street in an organized effort to delegitimize and undermine the duly elected government of the sovereign state of Wisconsin.

By calling in "sick" they sent a message that it's okay to lie when the circumstances warrant.

To make matters worse, a video was released Saturday by the MacIver Institute showing teachers getting notes from "doctors" to excuse their absence:

On Saturday, a group of men and women in lab coats purporting to be doctors were handing out medical excuse notes, without examining the ‘patients.’

“I asked this doctor what he was doing and he told me they were handing out excuses to people who were feeling sick due to emotional, mental or financial distress,” said Christian Hartsock. “They never performed an exam–he asked me how I was feeling today and I said I’m from California and I’m not used to the cold, so he handed me a note.”

What kind of a message does this send to the students of Wisconsin?

Conservative columnist Michelle Malkin posted pictures from the rally Saturday that show the rhetoric and level of civility being employed by the protesters. Naturally, the signs include images comparing Governor Scott Walker to Hitler, various foul and obscene language and the usual progressive hatred of Fox News.

Gov Walker is not and will not back down. That realization is hitting the teachers and their union thug leaders right in the middle of their brains. I’m sure that their thoughts now are, “Oh, ****”.

They are also passing along unsustainable budget deficits to their kids.

Except the teachers and the unions think they are a very good, if not excellent, role model. They are the wonderful examples.

“These teachers should all be fired for this.”

But they will not be. My guess is when all is said and done, there will be no sanctions for the teachers. The only real losers in this little demonstration will be the kids who will lose a few days of schools and probably will be forced to make it up at the end of the year. of course the teachers will have to be in the class rooms, but they will probably be getting overtime pay.

Nowadays, you have to be pretty dumb to sacrifice your kids to the public school system in America!

The lesson: The American system of government has become irreparably corrupted by the power of the pigs at the trough. Corruption wins.

When I was in high school in the early seventies, I started to notice what I called “heavy head trip liberalism”. It was tied in part to what we now call identity politics. I began to ask “is a liberal someone who stabs you in the back, cuts you off at the knees, and then tells you that it’s for your own good?”. That was when I was a Scoop Jackson Democrat, but the McGoverites and the radicals were gaining influence over the Donk Party.

**** = SHIT.

Yep, they are starting to get it.

Their little world, controlled by demonRATs and supported by public unions is starting to crumble and they know what is coming and there is no way out.

Coming to a city or county or state or Federal government near you.

The lights are on and the RATS are in full view and the overall general public is watching and doesn't like what they are seeing.

Corruption needs darkness, and daylight scares the living hell out of the RATS.

I completely agree.

Thank goodness my kids are grown and on their own. Professional, conservative and patriotic.

They're getting the job done too. I work college security
and see the kids raised with this mentality all the time.
Like the girl a couple of weeks ago who locked her keys out
of a brand new small Nissan and was kicking it and hitting
it with a shovel and yelling that “Now my dad will have to
buy me a Camry like I told him to! He sucks!”

Slight adjustment...they are taught to lie when it is for what they consider to be their personal benefit...so any unbiased bystander, like a student, can conclude that integrity and character, as such, can just “take a hike!”

Not true if the Gov. holds strong. More states to follow.

In just a few weeks, on April 5, 2011, Wisconsin has a Spring Election to fill a lot of Judge positions, including one for the state Supreme Court and several for Courts of Appeals.

Tea Party organizations should take this as an opportunity to channel parent anger against Dem-supported judge candidates.
