Lieberman was a Nay!!?? Did Hell freeze over?
I know! I know!
John Conyers’s “Good and Plenty” Clause! /sarc
Now now. The monkey only had herpes.
I'd get the government out of the education business. Privatize the schools and leave it up to the families on how they want to educate their children.
Thanks Perdogg. Buh-bye, Zero.
I think one of the Democrat complaints was that while the money would be given to the states for the purpose of hiring teachers, etc., there was no mechanism to insure it would actually be spent for that purpose. I suppose they are afraid it might be spent for snow removal, or garbage collection.
There can be no greater issue facing our civilization than the one you raise. Thank you, sir.

“first responders” - yeah, the ones who “respond” immediately when I go four mph over the speed limit.
Maybe this’ll give the “Flea Party” (not the Tea Party) reason to go protest in D.C. instead of Occupying Wall Street.
You do it at the same time...
Thats what "convenience store" means for those in Rio Vista.
Only in AP-land is a failure to invoke cloture equivalent to rejecting the bill.

Please tell me how more public sector employees help to spur the economy? Will any of them create a new business? Will any of them start a new business venture which will hire thousands of workers?
This idea that increasing sales at Hobby Lobby and Wal Mart will help the economy is a joke.
When will we be rid of this sock puppet?
Here in NJ we have had layoffs, including tenured teachers. A few years ago temporary funds were found to keep the Education Gravy Train going like business as usual (not just maintaining, but continuing to grow and give bigger increases than the private sector was receiving). Now those funds are gone, and so are a lot of the newest people hired (teachers, cops, firemen); they have no marketable job skills in the worst job marlet ever.
As everywhere else infested with illegal aliens already knows, they are not a viable tax base. Their underground economy is untaxed (and unsanitary).
“I believe the primary motivation is to get more union money in democratic campaign coffers.”
Absolutely, but also they have to give the impression that they can deliver to their constituents as well. Many former Detroit auto workers were disgusted with their unions because after spending so much on union dues they ended up on the street anyway; Dems can’t have that happen with teachers (although it is happening in NJ).
“FIRE MORE TEACHERS!”
Here in NJ our governor Christie is working on this overtime; he is acheiving results as well.
Art I Sec 8: “Congress shall have Power . . . . To raise and support Armies”
LOL , , , wait, that’s not really funny.
The money probably would go to ensure their pensions are paid and if any is left over to keep some dolts on the payroll so they don’t lose their union funds which flow back to the dems. Nice racket and has been working for years.
I see today, the POS’s energy department gave a 500M loan to a Finish company that makes electric cars. How many employees will that stimulate in the US? NONE. Oh, the company is well connected to an Ocrook bundler.
nail on head.
I know plenty of teachers who should not be anywhere near kids let alone teach them.
Yes there are some good teachers but lets face it, there are some who are just way out in space.
Democratic Controlled Senate Fails to Advance Democratic Jobs Measure for Teachers, First.....
“...Joe Biden is looking forward to increasing the rape statistics ...”
And the IMMEDIATE answer when Biden made the rape statement SHOULD have been:
“Then make sure you and the rest of your Democrats PASS the National CCW Reciprocity Bill which is currently going through the House, and rapes and violent assaults will decrease.”
But of course, can’t have the peasants armed now, can we?
That Human Events reporter that was badgering him had a PERFECT opportunity to bring that forward - cameras rolling, micrphones on, etc., and...nothing.
The next time Biden spouts off his nonsense, or ANY Dimwitocrat, the National CCW Reciprocity bill should be brought up instantly.
I heard on local radio this morning (KYW1060 - Dem propaganda station) that the Philly DA Seth Williams was NOT happy about this bill, nor was Police Chief Thug Ramsey. So they’re getting nervous.
Which, of course, automatically means that it’s a GOOD thing for us...
I say if they can't handle it themselves let it pile up around them.
These people don't know how to write headlines.
Check out the price tag while keeping in mind NYS is about to lose 2 House seats.
>>FIRE MORE TEACHERS!
They’ll just collect perpetual unemployment and go crap on police cars whilst they “occupy” Wall Street.
That’s the cool thing for unemployed edumacators to do these days — since having a Marxist protege of the Weatherman Underground in the White Hut has taken all the fun out of being a prooofessional “anti-war” protester.
As with federal unemployment compensation, it's the gift that keeps on giving.
Naw... let's give their suffix back to them and even throw in an extra letter, so they can be known as:
The Democrat Ick Party
That's always the motivation with democrats and unions, along with making those dependent on handouts as many as possible.
The teachers don't teach anything except marxism, the police are only good for drawing the chalk line around your dead body, the firemen...well, we do need them.
I say "Bring It On!"
When people do this....
To be followed by the “Will Somebody PLEEEEASE Think of the CHEEEEEELDRUN Act of 2012”.
Imagine how many people they would have added to the public payroll if a hiring freeze had not been in effect...
Why should the feds fund state public unions anyway? Oh, wait; I know - it’s to buy votes for the Obozo.
I am sick of hearing about stupid teachers, as if they are saints or something. Most of them (in the blue states) are overpaid union hacks who get the easiest college degrees in existence, and then indoctrinate kids with liberal bullshit. Our education system is made WORSE when you hire more of these mind-numbed robots for the welfare state. FIRE MORE TEACHERS!
Just a personal anecdoante, but we pulled our special needs son out of the public schools three years ago when he was 7. They could produce no evidence that he was learning to read or able to do any sort of math. They would literally give him awards for “good handwriting” (his handwriting STUNK) and have him memorize reading passages to “show off” to me when I’d come in.
After a year at a private school, and 1.5 years of homeschooling, he’s now reading at almost grade level, is finally learning all his math facts and basically is catching up to almost grade level in terms of language arts, handwriting, spelling, etc.
I didn’t need those teachers. They strutted around in their fancy outfits all day, looking down at us, pushing paperwork at us w/ their ridiculous IEP process. My son actually has PROMISE now — and we as parents have actual hope that he might just attend college someday. He’s actually VERY smart — just needs a good curriculum and to stop being pulled out of class 100 times a day in the name of “inclusion.”
“The crime rate in Detroit is also down despite fewer police.”
That’s probably because the criminals have moved on to greener pastures,,, like Flint.
They always knew the bill would fail. Nobody cosponsored the bill. Reid introduced it “per request”. The purpose of the bill is to provide a campaign talking point against the GOP as cold-hearted obstructionists.
womyn and chillrun hardest hit...
not far from truth:
” Man accused of exposing self to children arrested “
Uuuuhhhh, to vote the “right” way in November, 2012...get it?
A more correct title might include something like “...increase taxes bill...”
And one of the female, mush for brains commentators, was gleefully reporting how this is going to really, really be good for the wonderful Demoncrats and how it was going to be really, really bad for the old mean Republicans. They don’t have a clue about the attitude of those of us in “fly over country.”
Really “triparty” opposition since Lieberman is an official “Independent!” :))
What I am waiting for is a “Support for Unborn Babies Bill”...what with all their interest in lowering the crime rate...
