Nothing proves better than this photo why teachers of today are neither genetically nor culturally related to teachers of the past. Sometimes I wonder if they're more simian than human, as the above photo demonstrates. FUGLY about sums it up.

Thomas Sowell proved that today's public school teachers come from the bottom 20% of the pool of college graduates. Seems to me they come from the reject wards at state hospitals and possibly some veterinarian hospitals as well.

They make, what was it, $72000 for 9 months of work before benefits?! Highest paid teachers in the nation by a good margin, but no, that's not enough.

You know who $8000/month plus benefits isn't good enough for? The children, somehow.

Illinois desperately needs its Scott Walker.

I guess they don’t remember the part of Obama’s speech where he said we were all in this together and would have to make hard choices! Being good liberals the teachers know he wasn’t referring to them.

First thing I noticed was a bunch of fat broads wearing professionally printed matching t-shirts. Who paid for those?

The taxpayers.

I think all school boards should wear bright yellow t-shirts with the words “We’re interested in the children” on them. Boy, would the teachers be mad that someone else can look like a soccer team with matching t-shirts. So much for professionalism.

BWAHAHA!

Putting on my custom-designed Reynolds wrap high-frequency receiver chapeau:

Rahm has it all planned out. He created this crisis so he could take advantage of it. Set 400,000 undisciplined violent kids out on the loose on the streets of Chicago. They get ahold of their housemates (can’t call them parents) booze, drugs and guns. So bored...what to do?

Phone or text all your Facebook and Twitter friends to meet downtown at a set time, set place. Rampage through the streets, parks, and stores. Steal, rape, and kill.

Voila! Chaos! Voila: Kristelnacht, Chicago-style.

Did you read the sign that the teacher was holding up in the CNN photo, something about students, not bankers?

The Chicago teachers have joined the OWS movement. That’s all this about. Let them stay out until after the election. They can afford it, then go to school all summer next year to make up for it.

Give everyone of the a 100k salary tomorrow. The only caveat is they have to disavow the union.

From the school district itself: annual average teacher salary is $74,839. Annual average administrator salary is $120,659. The district website says that they got the information from the Illinois State Board of Education, "last updated October 2008." A minute or so scan didn't show what their benefits are, but they're not included in that salary figure.

At least it appears they are eating well. I also see they have the proper mental demeanor to be around children.

And judging by their refusal to be judged on how well they teach, ineffective babysitters at that.

I’m overjoyed that the “Obama” Communist state of Illinois does not have a Scott Walker. Ya git who you vote for!!! Let Chicago families and children wallow with Obama and their Democrats in the cesspool of public service unions they, themselves, created. Both the city of Chicago and the state of Illinois are bankrupt. Now.....Obama will step in and borrow some more money from his communist cohorts in China, give the unions all they want, and put our country in more debt!!! Sad!!! Sad, for freeedom, Sad, for our children, Sad, for America!!! All public sevice unions should be abolished except for “first responders”!!! Amazing these teachers in Chicago are both ugly on the inside and the outside. Their leader looks like she would be right at home with a “Red Star” on a winter cap. Communism Lives in Obama, Chicago, and the Democrat Party!!! These teachers should all be fired immediately!!!

Assuming that is true, did he say why it is true?
