Teachers tell protesting unions to shove their dues and rules
Examiner ^ | August 4, 2013 | Martha

Posted on 08/05/2013 1:46:27 PM PDT by usalady

The Wisconsin school teachers protests and attempts to recall Gov. Walker resulted in not only losing the battle but instead helped to further new laws across the US that allow teachers to drop union membership. Now the National Education Association (NEA) and other teacher unions are seeing a decline of those willing fill the coffers of these organization.

As teachers began to look more critically at the NEA and their local, state and regional affiliates many were repelled by their unions being in bed with Democratic Party politicians. Many of them did not like the direction taken by those in control at the unions’ organizations.

Why is it that you post only excerpts of your own Examiner blog?

http://www.freerepublic.com/tag/by:usalady/index?tab=articles

It seems that you are only here to milk this site for hits.

Have you any thoughts on this?

There are probably those who say the same of me when I constantly refer them to a FreeRepublic thread.

There seems to be a BDD here. Blog Deraignment Disorder.

Now what is really important, is the article accurate?

Is it only excerpted here to get hits?

Does the "author" ever interact or make comments?

Is the poster then just USING us to get some hits?

Is that a "teacher?"

How quickly would a child in that dude's class be sent to the office for similar behavior?

I found the article quite informative hits or no hits. No skin off my nose if someone gets hits assuming the article is correct.

Ah, yes.. fear of Alinsky. No one ever thought of mockery or questioning sources until Alinsky invented them.

I reckon you must think pretty highly of him to attribute such basic things to him, huh?

I have thoughts on it. The OP is presenting news and opinion that points to a source for further elaboration.

Tasteful self promotion isn’t a sin and I don’t know why you would even think that there is something wrong with OP’s post. I pick up great links and great resources on FR, from both vanity and cut-’n-past posting.

Somebody wants to post an excerpt from their blog of an original thought or notion, then post a link for their blog for those further interested is fine in my book.

who cares? Read the article, don’t read the article. Frankly, this is why the internet is so grand, and until JimR decides freepers can’t post blogged material its fine.

humblegunner, it seems that you are only here to snipe at bloggers who post from their own sites. I for one welcome the exposure to new information sources, and I am free to decide for myself whether to view their blogs. Thanks just the same, but I do not need your “protection.”

Appears to me to be of Vietnamese decent. No doubt she knew of NO hardships that her Parents went through to get here. She is entitled to anything she wants in her pea brained mind.

In response the leaders of the NEA have decided to raise dues for those remaining in unions.

Bwahahahaha ... typical leftie "revenue" formula and they will wonder why income goes down instead of up. They will not understand.

The money shot, showing how out of touch the unions are:

“In response the leaders of the NEA have decided to raise dues for those remaining in unions.”

Wow. Democrat/socialist logic.

I agree. I find more sources of info is better than less, and WAY less tiresome than the constant bitching about blog excerpts from the gunner.

Agreed. I never give these sleazebags any hits, but I do sometimes enjoy the excerpts they post. If blog pimps are not a big deal to the owner of Free Republic, they're certainly no big deal to me.

Semper fidelis,
LH
