Contractually Obligated

I didn't post the brilliant full segment from last Thursday's Daily Show but I urge you all to watch it. Aside from obviously being hilarious, it exposes the lazy hypocrisy of idiot media pundits (mostly employed by Fox) when it comes to attacking teachers for ruining our kids and destroying public budgets. It is unbelievable to me how liberals can be accused of stirring up class warfare for this while conservatives don't even blink as they blame teachers--with their lavish $50,000 salaries and *gasp* dental benefits--for the ills of America. The very same conservatives who defended until they were blue in the face the "contractually-obligated" bonuses of taxpayer bailed-out Wall Street executives have the gall to support Governor Walker's attempt to shred public union contracts and prevent the fair negotiation of future contracts for the people who do the most important work of all (yes, even more important than an investment banker). Don't accuse me of class warfare for asking people making $250,000 a year to pay three percent more on the highest marginal tax rate while you spit on teachers, police officers, and firefighters and their apparent greediness in wanting to secure a decent living by not upholding their contracts and snatching away their labor rights. Wall Street bankers aren't the only people creating wealth in this country. At some point in their lives, they had a teacher.
