Actually, save the country by defunding the public schools and unleashing the police.

“Police violence is a leading cause of death and trauma for Black people, and is a serious public health and moral issue.” Seriously? The police are running Planned Parenthood now? Who knew? The powers that be should instead cut an astronomical amount of the education budget to keep it from these propagandists.

Not since Horace Mann ran his scam of state-sponsored public education in the 1800s, have these fiscal sponges raped and pillaged their patrons quite so efficiently. Los Angeles teachers union even has Judas Iscariot beat by a mile! He only received 30 pieces of silver.

Ah, the oppression of black children continues under the dem/communist party. You see, without an education your chances of succeeding are basically zero. Obtain a high school and/or college education or learn a trade and you have your ticket out of the hood. But no, the dem/communists running your liberal cities will not allow minority children to get an education. Nope, no charter schools, no voucher programs and no school choice. You see, in order for the dem/communists to keep you on their plantation they have to keep you dumb. That's right dumb, ignorant, illiterate. That's a fact. Think about that.

It doesn't sound like there are any educators among the teachers union. They are all political activists, who are more interested in their own interests. Fire them all and hire some real teachers. Unions have become antithetical to American values. All patriotic Americans should quit the union at the earliest possible time!

Absolutely, #9. And it would be interesting to know who in the black community came up with the idea that studying hard and graduating was “acting white”. My guess is that it was a progressive white politician who started that.

It does not seem plausible to me that the "rank and file" want the police defunded, unless things really are not as bad in schools as they claim and it is just exaggerated to be used in collective bargaining...

This is illegal and a blatant violation of their union contract. No parent should even contemplate sending their child to a schools whose teachers advocate for defunding police. Find a sane person willing and able to teach and pool your money with your neighbors to home school. Do whatever you have to do. But please do not cave to this unlawful attempt by teachers to usurp power they do not have to override the will of the voters.

As soon as the local weather 'guessers' predict possible bad weather, all public non-essential personal are sent home with pay. School teachers are at the head of the parade. Give them a year without a check, and see if they can do an actual working job.

They simply want to use this reason to shift money for pay raises and pension payments. I can assure you NONE of the money, if shifted, would go to any other program. LAUSD is too large, and un-representative of the vast district (largest in the nation) and should be broken up. How many six-figure administrators do they have? If they work 25 years at 2% pension that is 50% pension, and I'll bet they have a 2.25 or 2.5% funding. How many are getting over $60,000 pensions?

This nation has been pouring billions down the education rathole controlled by the Left for decades. We are seeing the consequences of that money right now. Not only do I say no more money, but I would rather fund things like home schooling and charter schools which are actually educating kids rather than indoctrination. End unions and tenure in education and let the parents clean out their local districts. There are plenty of conservative teachers out there who would be glad for a chance to actually teach kids.

After President Donald Trump commuted the sentence of former adviser Roger Stone, Democrats went apoplectic. On Saturday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said she would support a bill that would limit a president’s pardoning abilities. Stone had been sentenced to three years in prison for witness tampering and lying to Congress. He was also arrested in an infamous early morning bust with multiple armed police raiding the 67-year-old’s home as CNN filmed.

Like baboons showing their rears to zoogoers, the election of President Trump caused the rotting institutions of America to reveal their least attractive features. The press has engaged in nonstop lying without remorse. The premier educational institutions have revealed their Marxist colors and disdain for the sifting and winnowing of ideas that once were their reason to be. The FBI, Department of Justice, and the courts have tipped their partisanship, and to their dishonor, the ethical grounding that once made them worthy of respect.

Recently made public Secret Service records indicate that Hunter Biden, the youngest son of former Vice President Joe Biden, did not travel to Ukraine prior to his appointment to the board of directors of Burisma Holdings, one of the country’s top energy conglomerates. The documents, which were received through a Freedom of Information Act request by the conservative-leaning group Judicial Watch, show the younger Biden took 411 domestic and international flights between 2009 and 2014. The secret service provided protection for Biden on each of those flights and potentially more, as the records only cover the period from June 2009 to May 2014.

The New York City Council passed the city’s $88.1 billion budget just after midnight Wednesday with hopes to solve the Big Apple’s $9 billion budget shortfall — in part by slashing NYPD spending by $1 billion. The deal became official once Councilwoman Deborah Rose (D-Staten Island) became the 26th council member to vote in favor of the budget — representing a majority of the 51-person legislative body. “Today is not a day of celebration, we are not in a time of celebration, it is the time of necessity and today’s budget agreement is one of necessity,” Council Speaker Corey Johnson said following the vote.

As for baseball, let’s be honest. It’s boring to watch and it’s even boring to play. Ordinary people who aren’t being paid to play baseball cannot endure it except by playing it co-ed with beer, which makes practically anything endurable including watching paint dry. About 90% of baseball consists of the players standing around while touching their privates whenever the TV camera is pointed at them or sitting around the dugout pretending to watch the other team while touching their privates. They often spit. Why do people pay to see millionaires lolling about in a park and hiding in a little concrete bomb shelter while spitting and touching their privates?

During the 1930s and 1940s, there were many genuine communists, as well as fellow travelers, working in Hollywood. Once the Cold War began, Hollywood turned against those people and instituted its blacklist, which made it impossible for anyone with communist sympathies to work openly in Hollywood. Of late, the further left you lean in Hollywood, the more you are to be applauded. That’s why it’s incredibly ironic to realize that Hollywood is once again blacklisting people – only this time, blacklisting means that the only people listed for employment have to be black.

The Left’s “Boycott Goya” campaign to bully and silence Goya Food CEO Robert Unanue for praising President Trump has backfired in epic fashion after scores of Trump supporters launched their own counter-boycott called “Goya Buy-cott.” The “Buy-cott” campaign inspired countless Trump supporters to go to their local stores and buy up Goya olives, seasonings, beans, and frozen foods like it’s Christmas. In fact, Goya couldn’t have asked for better marketing if it had paid millions of dollars in prime-time TV and newspaper ads.

In 1985, Michelle Obama presented her senior thesis in the sociology department of Princeton University.

Her thesis reads like a cry for help. "I have found that at Princeton no matter how matter how liberal and open-minded some of my white professors and classmates try to be toward me," she writes, "I sometimes feel like a visitor on campus; as I really don't belong." She didn't.
