That teachers, firefighters, and policemen are the only Americans with value?

Answer? Because they're union.

No, because they are government employees. Only people who work for government do anything worthwhile, in the eyes of a liberal.

They dont, in fact those are probably the union employees they hate the most.....BUT they appeal to the middle class and most normal people.....so they use them as bargaining chips......you never see them threaten to lay off a lazy ass DMV worker or a friend of the mayor that doesnt do shit but draw a paycheck......nope always a teacher or cop......

As a former teacher, I absolutely agree with Romney that the union is nothing but a self-centered political machine, and does NOT put the kids first. Teachers should be held accountable, and tenure can result in lazy attitudes. As Romney has said, students and parents don't have a union to represent their interests, and they deserve someone who will work to make more choices available to them through charter schools and vouchers.

We don't value them more than others...we can't understand the current RW need to devalue them.

Time for some generalizations...

Any time a liberal talks about government workers, they are always thinking of the best of the best cops/teachers/firemen.

Any time a conservative talks about government workers they are always talking about the worst of the worst, pencil pushers, redundant jobs, lazy sobs.

Why do they both perfer to focus on the exception and not the norm? Simple, it appeals to the base and furthers the rhetoric.

Tell me, Pattycake. Do you have a dd214? If not, why not?

I do. I think we should get the benefits and pensions we were promised...just as cops, firefighters, teachers, road workers, etc. get the benefits and pensions they were promised...in exchange for lower pay.

Why is it required that to get a job in some places you must join the union? Why are some of the union dues you pay used to support a candidate you may not personally support?

All of the firemen I know are also in the military and have served in both Iraq and Afganistan.

Don't really think you should feel you have to support one over another personally.

I do agree with you as it takes a lot to get a lazy ass teacher out.


We have already had so many cop cutbacks, and firehouses closed. As it is right now in the city it takes along time for a response as they are so very busy.
