unionized teachers fired

 You're fired!

Unionized Rhode Island Teachers Refuse To Work 25 Minutes More Per Day, So Town Fires All Of Them

The teachers at the high school make $70,000-$78,000, as compared to a median income in the town of $22,000.  This exemplifies a nationwide trend in which public sector workers make far more than their private-sector counterparts (with better benefits).

The school superintendent has responded to the union's stubbornness by firing every teacher and administrator at the school.
How long before some judge overrules the superintendent?

Holder's Costly Mistake
It’s had real-world consequences, not least that the tension between the Axelrod-Emanuel-Jarrett axis (appease despots whenever possible) and the Clinton state department (appease them, but accuse them while you’re doing it) has given time and breathing room to the bomb-building wing of the Iranian dictatorship. But this chilling report by Eli Lake tells us that the cost of the Eric Holder end of that decision has been a much more immediate threat:

How Christian Were the Founders?

Boned Jello

The New York Times yesterday delivered a lengthy (10 pages on the Internet) piece on religion.   Here's the answer to the their question,  How Christian Were the Founders?, in a single paragraph, 99 words.   The rest is a veiled attack on Christians.

All Europeans who settled in early America were nominally Christian.  The Founders, those who wore their religion, were Christian.  Some, Deists, believed in the existence of God based solely on natural reason, without reference to revelation, and slept in on Sunday.  We had a common religion, a common unreligion, and a common tongue.  Because of slavery we are  biracial, and that has caused some problem, most of which is today perpetuated by race baiters for political reasons.  We prospered.  Now, we find ourselves being divided  (Balkanized) by religion, language, and race.  There you have it.  We had wise leaders.  Now we don't.

Cheney said that he was a "big supporter of waterboarding," and that waterboarding and other enhanced interrogation techniques should have been "on the table" for Abdulmutallab:

CHENEY: I think you ought to have all of those capabilities on the table. Now, President Obama has taken them off the table. He announced when he came in last year that they would never use anything other than the U.S. Army manual, which doesn't include those techniques. I think that's a mistake. [Cheney Hits Back]

Conan - Raison d'Axed

Cuzzin RickyCuzzin Ricky sent me "the Real Reason Conan Got Fired" video.  It's the Tonight Show parody of Michelle Obama's appearance on Sesame Street.  Before I self produce e-mailed videos, I look for the YouTube version ,which usually exists.  Not this one. Other video services found by YouTube owner Google had a "No longer available" tag.  At the last minute I checked the O'Reilly/Chris Wallace version (above) and voila.  I'm pretty sure I posted this at the time, but in retrospect it may very well be why Conan was fired.  What? NBC West chief Don Ohlmeyer insisted Norm McDonald be fired from his SNL fake news job because of shots he took at the Clintons and O.J. Simpson.    For you MacDonald fans, and I'm one, here's a 6 minute cut of his stuff for dessert (language).
