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

Posted by FactReal on December 6, 2012

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:


  • $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.”

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)

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]:


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.

State Agents Inspecting Our Child’s Lunch Boxes

Posted by FactReal on February 15, 2012

…While they gorge themselves.
Carolina Journal reported:

RAEFORD — A preschooler at West Hoke Elementary School ate three chicken nuggets for lunch Jan. 30 because a state employee told her the lunch her mother packed was not nutritious.

The girl’s turkey and cheese sandwich, banana, potato chips, and apple juice did not meet U.S. Department of Agriculture guidelines, according to the interpretation of the agent who was inspecting all lunch boxes in her More at Four classroom that day.

The Division of Child Development and Early Education at the Department of Health and Human Services requires all lunches served in pre-kindergarten programs — including in-home day care centers — to meet USDA guidelines. That means lunches must consist of one serving of meat, one serving of milk, one serving of grain, and two servings of fruit or vegetables, even if the lunches are brought from home.

When home-packed lunches do not include all of the required items, child care providers must supplement them with the missing ones.

The girl’s mother — who said she wishes to remain anonymous to protect her daughter from retaliation — said she received a note from the school stating that students who did not bring a “healthy lunch” would be offered the missing portions, which could result in a fee from the cafeteria, in her case $1.25.

“I don’t feel that I should pay for a cafeteria lunch when I provide lunch for her from home,” the mother wrote in a complaint to her state representative, Republican G.L. Pridgen of Robeson County.


“If a parent sends their child with a Coke and a Twinkie, the child care provider is going to need to provide a balanced lunch for the child,” Kozlowski said.

Ultimately, the child care provider can’t take the Coke and Twinkie away from the child, but Kozlowski said she “would think the Pre-K provider would talk with the parent about that not being a healthy choice for their child.

Wasted food:

When the school forces a “healthy” lunch on a kid, it doesn’t take away the lunch that mom packed. The child could, if he/she is hungry enough, presumably eat both, which is an … interesting strategy for reducing child obesity. And of course, the final punchline: The little girl in this case still didn’t end up eating any vegetables despite having two lunches in front of her, which, of course, is why mom didn’t bother packing any veggies in the first place. So we end up not only with a bunch of wasted food but with a kid who didn’t get the basic nutrition that her mother’s own meal would have provided her. Perfecto.

Other Case
A Caller from N. Carolina to Rush Limbaugh:

CALLER: About eight months ago my wife and I decided to enroll our son in daycare here in North Carolina, and I got this huge packet of sheets that I had to fill out, and they, you know, field trip permission slip, take your photo permission slip, and one of them was, “By signing this you agree that you’ll meet the state’s requirements for a preschool lunch,” even though I’m packing it. And it says I have to have six ounces of milk or a milk substitute, four ounces of meat or a meat substitute, three ounces of grain, three ounces of vegetable, three ounces of fruit, and goes on and on and on. And I did not sign it and I fought about it with them and they pointed me to the state official that I could talk to, and they told me that, “If your son doesn’t like milk just pack it anyway and we’ll dump it out for you and then you can pack something else.” And I said, “Do you know how much a gallon of milk costs?” And they said, “Well, that’s the rules and you have to follow ’em if you want to be in daycare.” So now I’ve got the government telling me that I’m not smart enough to feed my own child.

10,000 Students to be Used for Michelle Obama’s Event in Des Moines, Iowa

Posted by FactReal on February 9, 2012

What if President Bush had used students the same way? That is, take kids from school and mobilize them to events where he would use them as props and force them to exercise to advance one of his agenda items.
Read report via CBS/AP: 10,000 Students to be Bused in for Michelle Obama’s Exercise Event.
Let’s not forget about the Obamas’ love affair with junk food:
(Click image to enlarge them)

It is well-documented that the Obamas enjoy eating junk food

But now they want to control what we eat and what we do with our bodies.
