Lies of Teachers Video Showing ‘The Rich’ Urinating on ‘The Poor’

Posted by FactReal on December 6, 2012

LIBERALS MAKING OUR KIDS STUPID
Using a crude image of “the rich” urinating down on “the poor” is the latest left-wing propaganda from a teachers union to advocate for higher taxes on the so-called rich. After all the excessive government spending, public unions still want more. Their addiction to taxpayer money is insatiable.

The California Federation of Teachers produced a video aimed to indoctrinate our kids by demonizing the rich, vilifying success, and inciting class envy. Proud socialist and multimillionaire (1%er) actor, Ed Asner, narrates the video that claims the rich obtained their wealth by pushing for tax cuts and by creating tax loopholes (which they equate to tax evasion.) According to the video, rich people’s greed led to the decline of schools, roads, public transportation, libraries, etc. The financial crash was also the fault of rich people, who later were the only ones who obtained government bailouts and are now blaming public employees for the fiscal problems in the nation — claims the teachers’ video.

These teachers thought it was a great idea to explain to kids the concept of “trickle down economics” (according to liberals) by depicting the rich (1%) urinating on less-affluent Americans (the 99%). Here is screenshot of that video section:

The California Federation of Teachers’ video is little more than unsurprising leftist propaganda, aimed to indoctrinate children with no basis in fact. Leftist, multimillionaire (1%er) actor Ed Asner narrates this video that claims the rich obtain their wealth through tax cuts, tax loopholes, and even tax evasion

Why Vote ‘NO’ on the $1.2 Billion Bond for Schools…and Labor Unions

Posted by FactReal on November 1, 2012

Miami-Dade spends hundreds of millions of dollars every year on questionable union costs. Now they want voters to approve more taxes despite the economic malaise that has caused so much hardship for taxpayers.
“Unnecessary union labor costs have been siphoning millions of dollars from Miami-Dade schools every year, at a time when the district can least afford it,” concluded the Education Action Group Foundation (EAG) after analyzing the teachers union collective bargaining agreement (CBA).

“The Miami-Dade County school board is asking voters to approve a $1.2 billion bond issue in the Nov. 6 election to fund physical improvements to the district…But the public might be hesitant to approve more taxes, particularly since the district continues to spend too much money on union labor,” says the EAG which analyzes school spending and education reform across the nation.

The EAG study titled “Sucking the Life Out of America’s Public Schools: The Expense of Teachers Union Contracts” found that:

IN THE 2010-11 SCHOOL YEAR THE MIAMI-DADE COUNTY PUBLIC SCHOOLS SPENT:

  • $270 million on employee health insurance premiums, while employees contributed about 12% toward their own coverage.
  • $21 million for substitute teachers to cover for teachers who called in “sick” due to the “illness of self or illness and/or death” of distant family members, acquaintances, or anyone who resides at the same address as the employee requesting sick leave.
  • $1.3 million for generous tuition reimbursement for teachers and office employees who continue their education.
  • $506,963 in alternative education stipends.
  • $347,000 in “supplements” for office staff arranging temporary instructors.
  • $255,800 for “supplements” for full-time interpreters for deaf and hard of hearing students. Those with a Bachelor’s degree earn an extra $2,000 per year while those with a Master’s degree or higher earn an extra $4,000 per year. Those hired to work on an hourly basis are paid $50 per hour.
  • $68,492 for one teacher to work as full-time union president.
  • $64,850 in “supplements” to employees who passed secretary training.
  • $59,300 for other teachers to have union “leave time.”
  • $42,779 as “increased financial incentive for the pursuit of further study.” (Sounds similar to the tuition reimbursement program)
  • $42,170 in stipends to employees who completed the urban education program “which will lead to advanced degrees for which credentialed payments shall be made.”

NOTES TO PONDER:
The school board has to cut expenses and waste before asking taxpayers to pay more taxes. Also, shouldn’t public employees pay for their own medical insurance? Why do taxpayers have to finance their lifetime pensions? Why do we need public unions?

Bully Teacher to Student: It’s Criminal to Criticize Obama (Video/Audio)

Posted by FactReal on May 21, 2012

The bully: Teacher Tanya Dixon-Neely
The school: North Rowan High School in Spencer, North Carolina
Via Breitbart.com:

The video shows a classroom discussion about the Washington Post hit piece about Mitt Romney bullying a kid some five decades ago. One student says, “Didn’t Obama bully someone though?” The teacher says: “Not to my knowledge.” The student then cites the fact that Obama, in Dreams from My Father, admits to shoving a little girl. “Stop, no, because there is no comparison,” screams the teacher. Romney is “running for president. Obama is the president.”

The student responds that both are “just men.”

The teacher…continues, “let me tell you something, you will not disrespect the president of the United States in this classroom.” …The teacher then tells the student – wrongly – that it is a criminal offense to say bad things about a president.

Latest: The teacher has been suspended WITH PAY (= paid vacations)

UPDATE
Student Bullied by Obamista Teacher Speaks Out (Video)

TX Kindergarteners Forced to Sing: “Obama…He’s Our Man, Yes We Can!”

Posted by FactReal on February 16, 2012

The Blaze reported (H/t USA Today):
Kindergarteners at a Texas elementary school were sent home with lyrics to a pro-President Barack Obama song that included such lines as “Barack Obama is the man” and “He’s our man, yes we can!”

The song, part of a Black History Month program, was forwarded from a parent at Tipps Elementary School in Houston to Joe “Pags” Pagliarulo, a nationally syndicated radio host and frequent fill-in for Glenn Beck. Included with the lyrics was an apparent memo to kindergarten teachers that said kindergarteners would be “required” to learn the chant for the program [all spelling errors below are original]:

Team:

Attached is a chant about President Barack Obama.  All Kindergarteners will be required to learn the chant for the Black History program.  Please write how many you will need.  Keep one copy to practice with students at school.

Thanks,
Mary Stovall
