America’s BIGGEST political donor is not corporate America, bankers, Insurers or Wall Street. It is the National Education Association(1), which gave over $56 million(2) in campaign donations in the election cycle 2008 alone, and American Federation of Teachers(3), which gave over $12 million(4) in 2008. Combined, these two teachers unions gave over $68 million in 2008, ALL of it to Democrats.
Still trying to figure out why Democrats are desperate to save the public sector unions?
Democrats scramble to prop up public sector unions not on behalf of teachers or students, but rather on their own behalf, as the NEA is the single largest political donor in America today and they give almost 100% to DEMOCRATS! In short, without millions in campaign funding from the national teachers union, teachers would be better off, but Democrats would be in DEEP trouble!
Lately, there has been a lot of leftist press drivel about Republican supporters, the Koch brothers and Koch Industries, which has given some $11 million in campaign donations over the last ten years or so, 89% of it to Republicans. They aren’t even an ant in the sandbox of politics, compared to the NEA, which is more like the sand in the sandbox.
Koch Industries ranks #83 on the TOP 100 list of political donors. They are nothing compared to the NEA who gave more than $56 million in 2008 alone, essentially ALL of it to Democrats, and ranks #8 on the TOP 100 donor list.
Teachers working in the National Public Indoctrination System need a labor union for one reason only, to raise money from teachers to support the Democrat Party. Teachers, half of whom are fed up with federal indoctrination mandates, are NOT the winners in the current system. Leftist Democrats are, and their union thug buddies who advance their international socialist agenda via the Democrat Party, paid for largely by public school teachers.
I get why Democrats are scrambling to save the public sector unions, and even why other public sector employees need a union so that they can’t be fired for not doing their jobs.
But why are teachers supporting all of this anti-American indoctrination with their union dues and protest signs?
In the good old days, we were told to look for the union label and buy products made in America. After labor unions ran private sector manufacturing out of America, government jobs is pretty much the only place you can find the union label.
Beyond George Soros’ ActBlue Democrat juggernaut, it’s the teachers union, the American Fedn of State, County & Municipal Employees of public sector employees, the mass media union and scumbag lawyer union American Assn for Justice, that make today’s Democratic Socialist movement possible.
Without teachers, government employees and lawyers, there would be NO Democrat Party or democratic socialism in America today!
How dare those evil Republicans try to liberate American taxpayers from these cut throat leftist thugs. No wonder Democrats ran away to Chicago as Gov. Walker moved to liberate Wisconsin taxpayers.
$68 million in campaign money buys a lot of loyalty from leftist Democrats, huh? The teachers should be ashamed to protest. Shut up and return to the classroom before we hire your replacements. Fire your unions and keep the $68 million to feed your families next time!
For any one or two organiations to give that much money is rediculous. If the Unions best intrest was to make anything better it should have been the DOE. Should there be an excuse for poor apptitude in this country, nope. Politics is way more important.
What do people think that kind of money would have done for the DOE. Made better teachers for our children of course, but the democrats took that from our children for their agenda. Shame on them.
Balance the Federal Budget.
Sundown the DOE
Sundown the Homeland Security
Sundown the DEP
Sundown the Energy Department
Sundown all CZARS
Make Congress Do their Jobs
Sundown all Foreign Aid. (Start back when a country can truly justify the need for foreign aid.) No foreign aid to any country that espouses "kill the infedels", or has an outright hate campaign against the United States.
One year and the budget can nearly be balanced.
For those countries dumping junk into our marketplace, hit them with a heavy tarriff.
(Two personal examples of made in CHINA: Bought 12 carriage bolts, 7 were defected and once you finger threaded the nuts onto the bolts, could not get the nut off and bolts twisted into two pieces of junk; Second example: Chineese equipment trailer hubs - no grease seal in America will fit the inner seal area to stop grease from slinging onto the brakes - milled 1/10,000 off standard). I am personally at war with CHINE - buy nothing made in CHINA if I can get by without their products. - Join Me in this purchasing war).
We will get the budget balanced if we also get rid of OBAMA and his whiskey cabinet. They must all be drunk because I have not seen anything sane yet from this administration.
If we do not get rid of the Teachers Unions we will have another generation or two of stupid children that wear their pants crotch down at their knees.
I still contend that if PARENTS will take the fight to the Local District Judge against their County Tax Collector demanding that all SCHOOL TAXES BE Refunded so the PARENTS can start their own educational system outside of Government, then hell will break loose and the Teachers and Their Unions will suffer. Especially, if the school system is teaching communism, Sharia Law, and all the trash that is against the makeup of the County Residents.
Attack them from two directions. Budget wise and Legally.
Almost forgot and had to reopen and edit: If you think about it legally, the TAX COLLECTOR is your elected official (you vote them into office); and, since he takes a SCHOOL TAX from all County Residents, he is the agent of the Residents. Not of the School Board. He/She dols out the money to the School Board. The Tax Collector also has a fudiciary responsibility to the people of the County. Think about this and do some research on the County Government. Bet there is a loophole in every county's laws.
I pulled one about 20 years ago that got some attention. The County taxed my little 50 acer farm with one farm house $125.00 (about that much can't remember) to build a County Land Fill and it was called a Land Fill Tax. There are several 6000 acer farms in the county and they were taxed about the same amount. When I paid the taxes, I wrote a contract on the back of my check in pale blue ink two shades darker than the pale blue of the check stock. The contract read that if the County cashed my check, they agreed to have the Land Fill up and operational by the following July 4th, or they would be in default of contract.
They cancelled the Land Fill Tax that fall. We had to pay one year only. They then built a library with the Land Fill Tax, and contracted out the Garbage Pickup to the adjoining County Waste management.
A friend on the County Commissioners told me that I had played hell with their mental abilities.
Something to think about with this Teacher Union, School Tax attached to your property, the Fudiciary Responsibility of the Tax Collector, and the fact that the collector is your agent.
CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTIONS! When are we going to start calling them what they are BRIBES!
By whomever pays the corrupt government officials the most money; Let me see if I can word this so you understand, the senators and congressmen all get together and (first let me point out that there all slickster lawyers looking to bend you over, ie the tax payer_) and pass a bill into law that says it's all legal for them to except bribes and call them campaign contributions, and then there interest go the there boys that give them the bribes, oops I mean campaign contributions and do there bidding all the while ignoring the people there supposed to be severing and there you have it CORRUPT GOVERNMENT , that YOU PEOPLE put in to power and believe there lie and continue to support them.For example re electing the criminal liar harry reid.
