Low-Information Teachers

The rich are different from you and me: they want us dead.

Karen Lewis, president of the Chicago Teachers Union:

“Do not think for a minute that the wealthy are ever going to allow you to legislate their riches away from them,” Lewis told the audience at the event. “However, we are in a moment where the wealth disparity in this country is very reminiscent of the robber baron ages. The labor leaders of that time, though, were ready to kill. They were. They were just — off with their heads. They were seriously talking about that.”

That’s scary to most people. But the key is, they think nothing about killing us. They think nothing about putting our people in harm’s way. They think nothing about lethal working conditions.

Rush had this yesterday, I believe:

LEWIS: They think nothing about killing us.

AUDIENCE: (murmuring of agreement)

WOMAN: Right.

LEWIS: They think nothing about putting our people in harm’s way. They think nothing about lethal working conditions. Which side are you gonna be on?

WOMAN: Right!

AUDIENCE: (applause)

LEWIS: So are we gonna be on the side of justice, are we gonna be on the side of a living wage for every person, or are we gonna be on the side of people whose entire mentality is based on a lie? Job creators.

AUDIENCE: (laughter)

LEWIS: Really? Then why have we lost so many jobs?

AUDIENCE: (applause)

RUSH: This is what we’re up against. This, years ago, we’d laugh at it. I would sit here and think, boy, nobody’s gonna believe… Not that nobody’s gonna believe it. Everybody’s gonna see this for the insanity that it is, or for the extremism that it is. I was wrong. People eat it up!

He’s got that right. We are so far down the road to perdition, even the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act couldn’t pay for its paving.

The Great Recession ended three and a half years ago; we’ve been in recovery and growing June 2009. Under Obama, this is all there is.

    I just read that Al Gore, after selling his Current TV flophouse to big Arab oil, is now richer than Mitt Romney. Wonder if this turdball wants to eat Al and other rich Democrats (John Kerry comes with his own ketchup), or just the ones she doesn’t like (i.e. Republicans.)?

    Its old but the quotation from William Boetcker is worth repeating every time that stupid pinkos start moving their lips and talking crap
    “”You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
    You cannot help small men by tearing down big men.
    You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
    You cannot lift the wage-earner by pulling down the wage-payer.
    You cannot help the poor man by destroying the rich.
    You cannot keep out of trouble by spending more than your income.
    You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.
    You cannot establish security on borrowed money.
    You cannot build character and courage by taking away men’s initiative
    and independence.
    You cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they could
    and should do for themselves.”
