You may ask what is the national average salary for school teachers

((The National Center for Education Statistics)

The average salary for public school teachers in 2009–10 was $55,350, about 3 percent higher than in 1990–91, after adjustment for inflation. The salaries of public school teachers have generally maintained pace with inflation since 1990–91.

THE NATIONAL EDUCATION ASSOCIATION AND THEIR POLITICAL POWER

It’s well known that education unions are perennial political powerhouses, nationally and locally. In his groundbreaking study of teachers unions, Special Interest: Teachers Unions and America’s Public Schools, Terry Moe argues that “by comparison to other interest groups, and certainly to those with a direct stake in public educational ”parents, taxpayers, even administrators — the teachers unions are unusually well equipped to wield power.” 

Consider this



Fortune magazine has consistently ranked the National Education Association in the top 15 of its Washington Power 25 list for influence in the nation’s capital.


Over the last 20 years, the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) has given more than $28 million in campaign contributions; the National Education Association (NEA) has given almost $31 million. That’s almost $60 million, more than any other organization,but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. 

At the state level, the AFT and NEA combined to spend an additional $61.8 million on candidates and expenditures for ballot initiatives in 2008 alone. Plus, teachers unions spend millions more on uncoordinated expenditures and get-out-the-vote efforts.

According to The Heritage Foundation, through July 2010, unions spent almost three times as much money on campaign ads as all corporations combined.



According to the Reason Foundation, the California Teachers Association has spent more than $200 million on ballot initiatives, candidates for state and local office, and lobbying. They used this money not only to argue against education reforms, but also to defeat healthcare reform measures and to defeat bills which would have prevented voter fraud.


In retaliation for Washington, D.C. Mayor Adrian Fenty’s commitment to education reform — and in an effort to remove the effective school chancellor, Michelle Rhee, who weakened tenure and got rid of bad teachers — the American Federation of Teachers dumped more than a million dollars into the 2010 Democratic Mayoral primary between Fenty and Vincent Gray.


Colorado saw sweeping education reforms come to the state in the form of weakened tenure and increased merit pay. How did the Colorado Education Association respond? By pumping almost a million dollars into the state. The money went almost exclusively to Democratic candidates and Democrat-backed proposals and ballot initiatives.


The head of the Chicago Teachers Union had this warning to any mayoral candidate in the 2011 mayor’s race who didn’t toe the teacher’s line: “I think the opportunity is to throw the weight of 30,000 members and their families and students and teachers. I mean, we’re looking at maybe 800,000 people we could affect on some level.”


Due to their massive base, and the massive dues that they charge, teachers unions can both mobilize voters and spend huge sums of money to defeat ballot initiatives and candidates that they don’t like
If you’ve ever wondered why education reform is slow in the offing, now you know: Politicians have real reason to fear crossing the unions. As Terry Moe put it, “when all is said and done, the power of the unions to block change is the single most important thing that anyone needs to know about the politics of American education.”
Unions Don’t Reflect Members’ Politics


The officials who wield teachers unions’ enormous political clout do so at the expense of their members, who frequently disagree with union bosses’ political agendas.

Consider the numbers above: Of the almost $60 million in campaign contributions distributed by the NEA and the AFT, more than $56 million went to Democrats. That means that roughly 95 percent of the unions’ money went toward Democratic candidates.

 THE NATIONAL EDUCATION ASSOCIATION UNION

RUNS OUR PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEM OR SHOULD WE CALL THE PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEM for what it really is SOCIALIST INDOCTRINATION CLINICS. 

The National Education Association is nothing more than a political arm of the Socialist Democrat Party conducting the Democrats Socialist agenda in our schools and disguising their agenda as EDUCATION..


Wake up America, The National Education Association and the Socialist Democrat Party are working overtime to brainwash our children.

BARACK OBAMA
THE WHITE HOUSE,January 11, 2010.

PATRIOTS,With the stroke of a pen, Obama significantly increased the ongoing effort to federalize the states and take control of the National Guard in violation of the now more or less moribund Posse Comitatus Act. Posse Comitatus was effectively annulled by the 2006 John Warner National Defense Authorization Act. 
The act provides the president with power to declare martial law under revisions to the Insurrection Act and take charge of United States National Guard troops without state governor authorization
The subdivision of the United States into a 10-region country (thereby minimizing or even negating the sovereignty and authority of the 50 independent and autonomous states) goes all the way back to the Richard Nixon administration. (SEE TEN REGION MAP HERE)
In response to pressure from the United Nations, President Richard Nixon issued Executive Order #11647 on February 10, 1972, which carved up the United States into 10 “standard Federal regions.”
ere repealed in 2008.”
What most Americans fail to realize is it grants federal executive power to these 10 governors–with the specific responsibility of providing leadership and direction to the National Guard and related homeland military activities. 
And is it any coincidence that the number of governors appointed to this new CG is exactly 10? 
Even more telling is the fact that the 10 governors come from each US region (the governor of Porto Rico represents Region 2), except for Region 5, and guess what? Region 5 is President Obama’s region!
Here is the list of the Council of Governors, 
as it coincides
with the respective 10 regions. If you know anything about what is going on, you should easily be able to see the logic of how and why these governors were selected. 
Obviously, the two basic criteria would be 1) The location of necessary government infrastructure, facilities, personnel, etc., combined with 2) The compliant attitude and overall disposition of the governor selected. 
Here is how it looks:
Region 1: Governor Douglas of Vermont
Region 2: Governor Fortuno of Puerto Rico
Region 3: Governor O’Malley of Maryland and Governor McDonnell of Virginia. These are necessary, as these are the two border states of Washington, D.C.
Region 4: Governor Perdue of North Carolina
Region 5: President Barack Obama of Illinois
Region 6: Governor Henry of Oklahoma
Region 7: Governor Nixon of Missouri
Region 8: Governor Rounds of South Dakota
Region 9: Governor Brewer of Arizona
Region 10: Governor Gregoire of Washington State

Talking Your Head Off

The Liberal commentator I respect the most is honest, intelligent, sincere, a well-regarded scholar of jurisprudence, and deeply versed in the ways of Washington.  What he has to say on any policy or issue is almost always welcome as a salubrious counterweight to any tendency to oversimplify on the part of Conservatives. 

And yet in spite of all this, when the Big Moments arise for Democrats and they regard it as paramount to score a victory in the public relations domain, this intellectual paragon instantly reverts to a flat-out regurgitation of the Demonbatic National Committee’s weekly talking points; it is eerily as though the Committee invades the man’s mind and substitutes its programming for his independent thought, like a Civil Defense agency expropriating television time. 

Around about 1994 I recognized a phenomenon` I’ve been watching take place 52 times a year ever since, and I’ll regale you with it in the form of Thompson’s Law of Demonbatic Talking Points: 

By listening to the Demonrat guests on the Sunday morning talk shows, you will learn precisely what all the other Democrats appearing in the media throughout the following six days are going to say, how they’re going to say it, and in what order they’re going to arrange its component segments. 

Trust me.  This is not infallible in Roman Catholic Church-speak.  This is INFALLIBLE.

Written by Don Thompson: exclusively for Conservatives Speak Out

My instinct is to speak reasonably with people, especially those who disagree with me.

 I empathize with everybody who undertakes the passion-rousing quest I think of as the never-ending (because chronology persists and circumstances change) search for what is best for us all.

But the Liberals with their moral certitude and giddy pretension to intellectual probity refuse to clasp my open hand.  They assume irremediably that we Conservatives are jackbooted zealots who want to waste civilization in an operatic (Wagnerian, of course) orgy of butchering blood-lust, and that we consequently deserve to be dismissed contemptuously—and also snidely—from their circle-jerk of self-appointed philosopher-kings. 

Well on this day I dismiss them, and with a lot more contempt than I can adequately express.  I also hereby renounce all further effort to reason with these people as though they were actually well-disposed brokers of the intellect and culture. What they are is thought-police, tyrannical oligarchs, micromanaging nannies and unprincipled polemicists, and from now on I am going to deal with them as they deserve. Ich kann nicht anders.

 If any say I’m not being fair to “honest” Liberals who don’t bear a likeness to the portrait I have limned, my reply is: let them move away from what their creed has metamorphosed into and publicly denounce its pathology.  Christopher Hitchens did this, and they can follow suit.

A VOTE FOR A DEMOCRAT IS A VOTE FOR COMMUNISM

24 Dec
To Those Who Don’t Vote
To all of those that do not vote, those who use the excuse that:

My vote doesn’t make a difference anyway

All Politicians are crooks

The vote is rigged

The winner is already decided

I don’t like any of the Candidates

To you I would like to say Thank You!

Thank you for: allowing the Religion of Evolution and Secular Humanism to be brought into our Nations Schools and now our Society as a whole.

Thank you for: allowing one woman to have prayer removed from our Nations schools.

Thank you for: all of the unnecessary and unneeded entitlement programs.

Thank you for: allowing our Nations Military to suffer ridicule and disdain.

Thank you for: the advancement of the Communistic Socialist Party agenda.

Thank you for: higher taxes (I really appreciate it).

Thank you: that all traces of God and Jesus Christ are being removed from our Nation

Thank you: that Islam, the religion of peace is being allowed and funded by Federal Dollars to be taught in our Nations schools while, the evil, hateful, and violent religion of Christianity is being done away with in the United States of America

Thank you for: the ACLU, a group that loves my Country so much that they are doing everything that they possibly can to be strict Constitutionalists to keep my family and myself safe from those that hate Liberty and Freedom.

Thank You for: the invasion of the United States by the illegal alien hordes and all those that support them

Thank you for: Bill and Hillary Clinton, Harry Reid, John Kerry, John Murtha, d**k Durbin, Nancy Pelosi, Barbara Boxer, Tom Harkin, Diane Feinstein, Al Gore, Ted Kennedy, Charles Rangel, Joe Biden, and the list could go on for what might seem and eternity

Thank You: that now 11 year old children “LITTLE CHILDREN” who should be innocent will now be given birth control

Thank You: that in the name of “Social Enlightenment” sex education is being taught to children as early as the 1st and 2nd grades

Thank You: that the unborn child who was once one of the most protected of all humans is now less important than an animal because that unborn child is now considered “A Parasite” and can be ripped out of its mother because it is no longer considered a human life

Thank You: that the person who commits any type of crime is considered the “Victim of Society”

Thank You: that the rapist, the child molester, the murderer, will no longer be unfairly punished but rather “Rehabilitated” at the expense of myself and countless other American citizens because our system of justice has been so unfair to the supposed criminal element of our society

Thank You for: Political Correctness

Thank You for: a totally fair and balanced media network and for the Hollywood elitist in supporting them you have made our lives so much better

Thank You for: the United Nations an insignificant and impotent organization that loves our money, but hates our Nations true ideals

Thank You for: all those who, In the name of the “Innocent Children” will destroy all that is good to set up an evil dictatorial “One World Government” because “WE” do not know what is best for us so they will show us.

Thank You for all these things and so much more.

By not voting you have helped to bring about so many things to this great Nation of ours. You have helped to put so many good law abiding Politicians into public office. You should be proud of yourself in that, you have helped to put the United States on the path that it is currently experiencing. Without your “Un-Involvement” this could not have been possible.

Just think about it! You, by not being involved in the Political process have aided and helped all of those who hate, despise, and abhor the United States of America. You are helping to bring about its dismantling and destruction and just think, one day there might not be a United States of America, it will only be a memory and possibly be considered to have been a fable.

And you my friends can claim the pride and honor of helping to bring all of this about!

You should be PROUD of YOURSELVES. Why?

Because in doing nothing, in “NOT VOTING” you enable those who want all of the things written above to come to pass. They will come to fruition all because you didn’t like someone or something, all because you believed that you don’t count or that your vote doesn’t mean anything.

I do not believe in positive confession but, If you believe you are nothing, that you’re not important, that you don’t count, that you and everything is hopeless, then that is exactly what you will be, “Hopeless”

I believe you are worth something, I believe you can make a difference. Jesus thought you were so important that He died on the cross for you and He rose from the dead for you. Seems to me that He thinks you’re pretty important! How ‘bout you?

” Without morals a republic cannot subsist any length of time; they therefore who are decrying the Christian religion, whose morality is so sublime and pure…are undermining the solid foundation of morals, the best security for the duration of free governments.” [Source: To James McHenry on November 4, 1800.]

John Jay:

“ Providence has given to our people the choice of their rulers, and it is the duty, as well as the privilege and interest of our Christian nation to select and prefer Christians for their rulers.”

Source: October 12, 1816. The Correspondence and Public Papers of John Jay, Henry P. Johnston, ed., (New York: Burt Franklin, 1970), Vol. IV, p. 393.

John Jay:

“Whether our religion permits Christians to vote for infidel rulers is a question which merits more consideration than it seems yet to have generally received either from the clergy or the laity. It appears to me that what the prophet said to Jehoshaphat about his attachment to Ahab [“Shouldest thou help the ungodly and love them that hate the Lord?” 2 Chronicles 19:2] affords a salutary lesson.”

[The Correspondence and Public Papers of John Jay, 1794-1826, Henry P. Johnston, editor (New York: G.P. Putnam’s Sons, 1893), Vol. IV, p.365]

To do nothing still, has a consequential action so why not get involved?

May the Lord Bless You

P.S. The definition of Politician

Poli; from the Greek word meaning “many”

Tician; from the root word “tick” meaning “blood sucker”

THE GETTIN AFTER LEFTY SHOW-CONSERVATIVE COMMENTARY
10 Dec
BONNIE BLUE FLAG
Is the Medium the Message or What?

Is the Medium the Message or What?

As a child of nine or ten, driving through the American night with my traveling-salesman father, there would always come a time, usually around two-thirty am, when we were able to receive only one of two stations on the Buick Roadmaster car radio of the day.

Both broadcasting operations transmitted at 500 kilowatts, one from El Paso (if I remember correctly) and the other from Cincinnati, and their respective programming seemed identical or at least interchangeable—radio evangelism or “Christian” radio—as did the voices and speaking styles of the successive bringers of good news, not at all wheedling or Jesus-painted-on-velvety but strong, forthright, compelling, matter-of-fact (a subtlety that totally eluded me at that tender age) and altogether inciting me to think that an unstoppable yet plausible and reasonable-sounding rant concerning the “ministry” of Christ was the appropriate thing to put on the air at three o’clock in the morning.

For some reason, I can still recall that the gospel-beamer in Ohio offered, in return for a gift of $10, “an oil-cloth table cloth featuring a hand-painted portrait of the Savior.”

As time and roads went on, these broadcasts regularized themselves with my consciousness and became as necessary to my psychic well-being as the Hank Williams songs that were normally our last listening fare before the onset of four hours of Jesus Radio; and at any time thereafter I could close my eyes and play the broadcasts for myself on my internal Donnie Station.

The oddest feature of the experience was that at the outset I had developed an auto-immunity against the actual message contained in the preachers’ mesmerizing collective manner of speaking, and by subconsciously dissociating the two—medium and message—not only was my mind preparing its top soil as fertile ground for the theories of Marshal Macluhan twenty years along the space-time continuum, but also attuned me to responding viscerally and quite helplessly to the speech patterns and vocal intensity of Ron Paul, regardless of whatever the hell he’s talking about.
