    I think we've worn out the teacher thread, so how's about we move on to a comparison to Police officers.

    How much should they be paid?

    I can save some time by telling you that the conservative consensus around here is that the police are overpaid, lazy parasites.

    Depends a lot on where they are police officers. I would expect the larger the city the more they should be paid. I know that our 2 full time officers don't expect to get rich....

    Not one dime more than an American soldier gets paid. Not one damn dime.

    Not!!! I admire everyone of them. They are soldiers and heroes, these days especially. They should be paid as much as their county can afford without exceeding their budget. If the policeperson cannot live within those means, they should look for the same job in a community that can afford higher pay and benefits.

    I guess you're wrong again, as usual. Stick YOUR ass out there and get shot at. Got nothing to do with politics.
