Dear Chicago Public School Teachers:
Since my previous post from a few days ago, the display of greed demonstrated by supporters of the Chicago Teacher’s Union went from mildly entertaining to blatant arrogance. When money is at the root of any “advocacy” the greed vermin will do anything to get more, just like a junkie. Thanks to social media, careful observers will note an increasing, suspicious number of “CTU Justice Warriors,” or more accurately, the BOTS, to construct tweets of arguments and guilt trips, with a package plan of over 1 million FAKE FOLLOWERS to give the illiusion of support. The Chicago Teacher’s Union took a page right out of the ‘ol Trump playbook.
Before I proceed to my next point, allow me to tell you a story about Jesus and greed:
When it was almost time for the Jewish Passover, Jesus went up to Jerusalem. In the temple courts he found people selling cattle, sheep and doves, and others sitting at tables exchanging money.
So he made a whip out of cords, and drove all from the temple courts, both sheep and cattle; he scattered the coins of the money changers and overturned their tables. – John 2:13-15 NIV
Jesus entered the temple courts and drove out all who were buying and selling there.
He overturned the tables of the money changers and the benches of those selling doves. “It is written,” he said to them, “‘My house will be called a house of prayer,’ but you are making it ‘a den of robbers.’” – Matthew 21:12-13 NIV
Jesus didn’t live in Jerusalem. Today, he has millions of adoring fans.
There are MANY people today that do their best in following Jesus’ footsteps, and those that do get shut down and/or shunned by evil forces. Guess what? I do not live in Chicago, so I should just “shut my mouth and move to another state?” Okay, but……
YOU DO NOT GET THE RIGHT TO TELL SOMEONE TO SHUT UP AND CALL YOURSELF A FUCKIN’ CHRISTIAN.
Or “Spiritual” in ANY capacity.
Fuck outta here!
The city CANNOT meet your indolent demands. Your pensions AND your benefits are sucking the life out of every organism in the room.
SOLUTION: TAKE IT OUT OF YOUR PENSION. YOUR PENSION. FOR THE KIDS!!! THINK OF THE KIDS!!!!!
If not……does the idea of dipping into your pension too much to ask? If nurses, counselors (insert other keywords….er, talking points here) are THAT important to you, you CAN make this sacrifice and go back into the classroom. From recent discussions, I’m getting the feeling that is too much to ask.
Let’s imagine a deal is made, then what? Five years from now (or sooner) there will be ANOTHER strike, with different talking points disguised as “concern for the health and safety of our students.” Guess what? There has ALWAYS been an overcrowding classroom issue. My side of the family are ALL products of Chicago Public Schools, and I cannot recall a class size under 40 for EACH and EVERY grade. You didn’t resolve the overcrowding issue then, and you’re sure as shit not going to do anything now. Librarians? Who needs librarians? All research is done with the help of the internet. Other requests won’t make a DENT in improving test scores. Who the fuck are you kidding. With every strike come different keywords, and not one of those keywords made a dent in overall performance and test scores.
Hey Taxpayers! You’re not exactly innocent in this, either. You cry, whine, bitch on Twitter, and yet your solution is to MOVE OUT OF ILLINOIS?!! That’s so brave, that makes PERFECT sense. That’ll show those teachers who is boss! That’ll teach ‘em (pun intended). I realize taxpayers don’t have the luxury of a million sick days and summers off as teachers do, but I have to believe that someone, SOMEWHERE is envying the residents of Hong Kong because of their stance AGAINST their government. This post is meant to put a FIRE UNDER YOUR ASS. If you “build it — I WILL come.” Fucking REVOLT. It’s long overdue.
Back to you teachers: You can outrun a lot of things, but the one thing you will NEVER outrun is your inner voice. I hope that your inner voice haunts you, disrupts your sleep patterns, and become a menace to your daily regimen. May that inner voice forever haunt you for using kids as political pawns. May that inner voice forever shame you for participating in shady political tactics. Again, grade F for “Fuck you all.”
I’m not classy like Jesus. But I WILL STAND MY GROUND and fight against greed and shady politics as He did. AFUCKINGMen!!!
