Crowd Laughs, Applauds Chicago
Teachers Union President After She
Jokes About Beheading The Rich

Mediaite, by Noah Rothman

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/8/2013 9:42:35 AM

Controversy erupted at the Illinois Labor History Society’s “Salute to Labor’s Historic Heroes from the History Makers of Today” conference when Karen Lewis, president of the Chicago Teachers Union, drew applause and laughs for suggesting that a past generation of labor leaders preferred to resolve disputes with murder. Lewis drew laughs when she talked about beheading the rich as a preferred method of conflict resolution for disgruntled labor organizers of a bygone era. (Snip) “At this very moment I still believe there is one party in this country – that is, the party of money, with two

Once again I say, can you imagine if a Republican had said this about a union member? These people are sick and reprehensible. She is the perfect example of the gross abuse of free speech.

She was funnier when she was ridiculing Arne Duncan for having a speech impediment.

Why can´t Karen Lewis, and all the hot chicks, Roseanne, Whoopi, et al, be happy with just being so Fn hot?

But, NOOOOO they have to try to be funny, too!

Reminds me of a movie called the four hundred blows. Step by step the divide deepens. More people should read about the stages of conflict and think before they speak. In a perfect world I wish malace towards no one.

Read the comments that follow the article! Here´s one typical comment "We as Educators will not allow our children to be trained as trick-monkeys for corporate wealth and power growth." These far left educators are beyond sick and they are teaching "our children"? No wonder the country is so divided. What would this country be like if we had no corporations? We would be a third world seas pool.

That Chicago teachers are represented by someone like this explains a lot. No wonder the city is having the problems it has. This woman doesn´t even know what the teachers are there for! It is very likely that many of those she represents don´t know what their purpose is either.

Teaching and news reporting have not always been accorded the dignity and status of professions. Somehow humanity survived and accomplished great things long before schools of education and journalism made their appearance. The latter seem principally to serve as indoctrination centers and foci of ideological infection. I am not aware of any good evidence they add value or quality or skill to their nominal purpose, e.g. how to educate students or report the news. Combined with powerful unions, schools of education have unleashed a nightmare on the nation that may prove our undoing. This woman and her cheering are one example.

What a pig! Literally, figuratively... How sick is it that this miserable excuse for a human actually represents Chicago teachers? No wonder 80% of Chicago children in 8th grade are not proficient in reading or math for their grade level. Does anyone wonder why Chicago keeps electing corrupt democrap officials and sent us the most corrupt president ever?

Not only is she a pig, she is ignorant to boot. Does she realize in the grand scope of the earth, she is a rich pig herself? She lives like the "filthy rich" pig she is by having more food and wealth than billions of people on the face of the earth.

Sorry to the world´s pigs for the comparison. It´s the only word I wouldn´t get banned for calling her.

1. Ah, the sweet fragrance of "the new civility."

2. Uglier on the outside or the inside?

3. About "schools" and "educators": in big city gov´t schools, only half the employees are classroom teachers. In charter schools, it´s about 80%. Among big city gov´t school "teachers," roughly 40% or more send their kids to private schools. Come on, do you need to hear more? Really?

4. Gov´t schools are bureaucracies first and foremost. The purpose of any bureaucracy is not "results", not progress toward some stated goal, but self-preservation. And nothing "proves" the need for a given bureaucracy more than its growth. That helps explain two things about bureaucracies: a. they can never really "succeed" [for they are then unnecessary]; and b. "mission creep" is a great defense and "proof" of their "importance." "Mission creep" often falls into one of two categories [or tactics?]: a. make the definition of your field ever-wider, ever-fuzzier [note how just about everyone "has" or "is at risk from" diabetes]; and b. simply annex new territory [look at how various medical charities/associations have expanded their "areas of interest"].

Rust never sleeps. A good thing to keep in mind. Along with the salaries of the "big-shots" in these organizations....

She is typical of liberal thinking. She, of course, is paid by the union, which gets its money from the teachers, who are paid by the government, which gets its money from taxpayers. She is so far removed from where her salary comes from that she thinks that without rich people hogging their "unfair share" there would be enough to go around for everyone else. Where would we be if she really could get rid of rich people? She needs to read the last third of Atlas Shrugged for a clue.

Washington Examiner, by Ashe Schow    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 2/27/2014 10:28:36 PM     Post Reply
First lady Michelle Obama unveiled a proposed new nutrition label Thursday, claiming the labels would make it easier for families to tell whether food is healthy. Because math is hard, or something. If your “nanny-state” radar is going off, it should. The new label really doesn’t appear to be much different from the old one. The “servings per container” font is larger and bolder, the “calories” section is much larger and bolder and the “percent daily value” column was moved to the left side (have to spend that tax money on something). The first lady said the serving size for many foods would be

The White House on Thursday said that President Obama and House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, discussed immigration reform during their recent meeting but declined to say if the leaders had made any progress on long-delayed legislation. “I can certainly confirm that immigration was one of the topics they discussed,” said White House press secretary Jay Carney. Obama and Boehner met in the Oval Office on Tuesday for an hourlong meeting. Carney, though, refused to characterize the tone of their discussion on immigration, saying only that “there is broad agreement that this is an issue that needs to be addressed.” “We´ve seen that in

The phenomenon of global warming has been used to explain many things, but now Mother Jones is quoting a study saying it might cause more rapes of women. Matthew Ranson, an economist, avers that there is a historical connection between warmer temperatures and increased crime. He said, "Looking at the past, we see a strong relationship between temperature and crime. We think that is likely to continue in the future." Ranson utilized the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change´s projections of the effects of global warming in the U.S. to estimate that between 2010 and 2099, warmer temperatures will "cause" an

Representative Carolyn B. Maloney (D-NY) and Senator Ed Markey (D-MA) are asking President Obama to designate $10 million for "gun violence research." According to The Queens Gazette, Maloney "joined with gun violence victims, advocates, and union leaders" to request the money on February 22. She said, "Gun violence costs our country an estimated $174 billion every year," adding that "the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has a research plan in place. Now they need the funding to move forward." Maloney also joined Markey in sending a more formal request letter to President Obama. On February 4 Breitbart News reported that gun control proponents

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio took off the gloves in his battle with education reformers, rescinding an agreement for the city to share space with several public charter schools. The move undercuts educators, parents and some 700 students at four schools, including Harlem Success 4, one of the public charter school movement’s top success stories, and two set to open in the fall. While agreements at those schools were rescinded, expansion of a fourth school was also blocked. The schools were to operate rent-free in city-owned facilities under deals backed by former Mayor Michael Bloomberg, an ardent supporter of

A federal judge in Kentucky took a final step Thursday forcing the state to begin recognizing same-sex marriages performed outside the state. U.S. District Judge John Heyburn was following through on his ruling earlier this month that found a portion of the state´s constitution, which bans the recognition of gay marriage, violates the U.S. Constitution. On Thursday, the judge wrote the amendment was unlawful and "void and unenforceable." The order came shortly after the Kentucky attorney general requested the ruling be delayed for 90 days to give defendants time to appeal and the state time to determine the best way to implement the

The man who shot and killed Trayvon, George Zimmerman, was found not guilty of murder in a Florida trial last year. The prosecution contended that Mr. Zimmerman singled out Trayvon because of

He also cautioned young minority men not to repeat his own youthful mistakes in an unforgiving world.

PHOENIX — Ending a day that cast a glaring national spotlight on Arizona, Gov. Jan Brewer, a Republican, vetoed a bill on Wednesday that would have given business owners the right to refuse service to gay men, lesbians and other people on religious grounds. Her action came amid mounting pressure from Arizona business leaders, who said the bill would be a financial disaster for the state and would harm its reputation. Prominent members of the Republican establishment, including Mitt Romney and Gov. Rick Scott of Florida, also sided with the bill’s opponents, who argued that the measure would have allowed people

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is being hammered by Republican lawmakers after he claimed on the Senate floor that all the ObamaCare "horror stories" being circulated are untrue. Reid tried to clarify his remarks late Wednesday by saying he was only referring to the “vast majority” of stories featured in ads funded by Americans for Prosperity, a conservative group, and not the complaints of everyday Americans. However, he added fuel to the fire by continuing to slam the group’s backers, the Koch brothers, calling them “un-American.” Americans for Prosperity President Tim Phillips, in response, said Reid had effectively

The Arizona Chamber of Commerce said Monday the bill could hurt tourism, make it hard to recruit new businesses and open the door to lawsuits against businesses.

If you listen to the chattering class in Washington, D.C., Hillary Clinton is a virtual certainty for the 2016 Democratic nomination, and the front runner in the next presidential race. But in private, rumors persist that the former Secretary of State may not even be capable of making it to Iowa and New Hampshire. Clinton, these skeptics often say, will not run for president again because of health concerns. These ubiquitous rumors of her health have been fueled in part by the supermarket tabloids. The National Enquirer wrote in 2012 that Clinton had brain cancer, something a spokesman dismissed then as “absolute
