The Blaze ^ | Dec 4, 2012 | Jason Howerton

Posted on 12/04/2012 3:38:56 PM PST by 20 years too late

A new animated video released by the California Federation of Teachers shows the rich “1 percent” urinating on and stealing money from the less fortunate and middle class. The purpose of the video is to explain “economic inequality” and the need for wealthy people to pay their “fair share of taxes.”

That’s interesting in light of the fact that many billions have been cut, so far, from food stamps to put directly into teacher salaries.

Pissing on the poor is what the Obamas do when they drive more Americans into the poor house.

But you won't hear the union pukes talking about that.

Time for the rich to go Galt. Leave them nothing to fund ‘education’ with.

California Teacher Union leadership are Useful Idiots.

After the media and Hollywood, they will be next group eliminated by the hard left when they seize power.

I’m guessing history is not a strong subject for teachers union members.

Any student that gets called on the carpet there for dirty talk or art should simply point this out.

Maybe we should have a term for people who got theirs through work/investment.. voluntarily.... and those who get theirs through force of government.

Income inequality is a tool of the left to justify their theft of other people’s money. How much money Bill Gates has no impact on your income. A better message to poor people would be, if you want more income GO OUT AND EARN IT.

The real divide in this country is not between the rich and poor. It is between those who earn their money from voluntary sources and those who get theirs from people against their will.

One can find cartoons in Julius Streicher’s “Der Stùrmer (sp)” that shows Jews collecting fountains of blood. The imagery is quite similiar to these California teachers.

I wouldn’t be one bit surprised to find out that these Marxist pro-barbaric totalitarian dictatorship “teachers” (indoctrinators?)searched through a large pile of NAZI propaganda to find things that were effective back then.

Didn't teachers make children wear dunce caps whenever they came up with stuff like this?

All the teachers that agree with this should be wearing dunce caps until they pass a remedial grade school level beginning economics book....or at least a preschool economics book with pictures.

I really piss off my sister-in-law school teacher when I announce that there’s no such thing as a poor teacher, unless it’s one of the devoted souls practically volunteering at a small Christiaun school.

“Narrated by actor Ed Asner”

I despise this butt wart! My family was flying back from Hawaii many years ago. It was on Christmas day. The only people on the plane were my family of four and Ed A-hole. Plane was empty. He came down from first class, looking for adulation from we commoners I guess. My Father, bless his soul, completely ignored ed. I got up and went to party with the stewardesses. A very, very good decision on my part! I was a day late getting home! Ed is a jerk!

This is why the dims always win and the repubs always lose.

I have told this story before:

Many years ago, there was a movie in which Sidney Greenstreet played the part of a big time advertising exec.

He had a board of director's meeting. All of the VP’s., perfectly dressed. looking life a bunch of penguins sitting at the huge table in the directors’ room....

Greenstreet spat on the table. Big juicy vulgar splat.

“Gentlemen, you have just seen me do a very repulsive thing.”

“But you will never forget it.”

That is one of the secrets of advertising to the masses of couch potatoes with their beer and potato chips.

Even though, as I recall, the movie predated TV in the small southern towns.

Te dims know how to put ideas in the politically naive mind and do it in such a way that it sticks.

The repubs have no idea.

These “teachers” are morons. How in the hell can anyone steal money from “dem po folk”. They ain’t got no money. If any of these “teachers” had half a brain, they’d know that it is “the rich” who are being robbed here. The way I see it, dem po folk be urninating on the rich.

Basically a cartoon version of what Obama and the media have been pounding into people's heads for the last 4 years.

All the bad guys (rich people) in the cartoon are white males. The good guys (the 99%) are at least 50% black. They never get over their obsession with race.

They look like Marxist tyrannts to me.

What's this “Outlaw the Rich”? What? Try them before the People's Courts? Imprison them? Send them to FEMA concentration camps? Shoot them?

Huh? ...Ok?.....THESE are the people teaching our nation's children. Teachers unions exist because teachers **willingly *** seek these jobs and then willingly pay the dues.

Personally, I believe that government schools are so harmful to the child and so much of a threat to our nation's freedom , that I will NOT have a government school worker for a friend. They are too evil, too stupid, or too much of a Useful Idiot!.

There were “7.2 million” teachers in the USA in 2009. The “national average salary” “for the 2007-2008 school year” was “$52,800.” “School principles,” “$99,365 annually in 2008-09.” [Census Bureau] I haven’t found the total spending on public school teacher incomes for any given year, yet.

The total number of K-12 public school teachers might be around 3.3 billion. Not sure, yet.

The "Rich," the providers of goods and services,are merely a conduit for collecting taxes and sending them to the govt to disburse to the ....teachers.

So, who is pissing on whom?

This woman is both evil and stupid.

Evil: She would kill the rich if she could. She just can’t get away with it...(yet).

Stupid: She doesn’t realize the the rich are the geese laying the golden eggs that pay for the government socialist-entitlement schools and her job.
