"They characterize you as only caring about yourself," Biden said at the American Federation of Teachers conference. "But the fact of the matter is, I don't think they know you. I don't think [Romney] knows you."

The Democrats can run a chimp as president, and the NJ Educational Assoc. would back him.

@ Allan Yorkowitz, no wonder a chimp has more brains than Romney.

Most teachers are to be admired. It's the teachers' unions that are selfish. Biden just missed the target as usual. It's Biden after all.

some of the rhetoric suggests some politicians think you surrender your rights when you become a teacher and have agreed to be a slave and asserting your rights, ones that everyone else has, is deemed selfish

Of course Janelle has the old divide and concur thing down pretty well, but without their Union, no benefits, no living wage. Hell, they'd be in the same boat as Walmart workers. Given food stamp applications when they got the so called jobs. Thats what the wingnuts want for all of but the Super rich/2% and their manager class/12 percent, which leaves the rest of us, hanging on by our fingernails. Don't knock people who are doing OK. Knock people who are keeping YOU from doing OK. Don't let the wingnuts dismantle whats left of the middle class.

Wow "hanging on by your fingernails." That begins to explain things. No wonder you are soooo confused and disillusioned.

It may help you dislodge your head from between your buttocks where it resides stubbornly, and with intent to remain.

Roberto, why don't you surprise everyone and get your mind out of the gutter and show just an inkling of intellegence.

I don't think the GOP likes education, period.

Another called me Roberto. Thanks for confirming who "lies" behind the mask. Not that there was much doubt. Tough to keep your lousy personality from seeping into your drones eh? You truly do have multiple personality disorder. To bad none of you is very clever. Why don't you read something and stop talking crap...sociopath. Of course we know why. You crave attention, and you use the only tool at your disposal. Stupidity.

Though wasted on Pinky, Carl, the Jackass...whatever.....the link I suggested should not be missed. Thinking beings will find it educational, enlightening...etc. Pinky, it will make your head hurt.

Our oldest son and his wife are both teachers. That in itself is a difficult job, but they are teachers in Texas! Not only that, but our poor son teaches high school biology! OMG! My poor babies! They have two young sons, live simply, and struggle from day to day. Selfish? Not a selfish bone in their bodies, and that applies to most in the teaching profession. Their reward is seeing the blossoming of young minds - certainly not money or any other material reward!
