    Why, because a judge dismissed a lawsuit for lack of standing? It has nothing to do with the merits of the case, nor does is prevent the case from being re-filed. In fact, it doesn't mean a thing.

    Very snarky. Almost near being clever. almost near it. But ultimately, you can't back it up with anything factual. It's just team cheering.

    I mean somehow the US was a super power. We achieved technological superiority over every other nation in the history of the planet. But there's no way that happened in our schools had a thing to do with it. Riiiight.
    I may be wrong.

    You are asking what contribution teachers make to our society? Wow, that is sad.

    Of course, even assuming that teachers did absolutely nothing, it is far better than tanking the economy and using the tax payers for a bail out.

    Noooooooo.

    The California Federation of Teachers — a branch of the AFL-CIO — has adopted a resolution at its annual conference supporting convicted cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal, the Daily Caller reports.

    From TheDC, which notes that Abu-Jamal is now being called a “journalist:”

    Among the resolutions largely pertaining to education and collective bargaining rights was Resolution 19 – to “Reaffirm support for death row journalist.”

    “Therefore, be it resolved, that the California Federation of Teachers reaffirm its support and demand that the courts consider the evidence of innocence of Mumia Abu-Jamal,” the Committee Report reads.

    Mumia Abu-Jamal, a former member of the Black Panther Party, was convicted of shooting, multiple times, Philadelphia police officer Daniel Faulkner in 1981. He reportedly confessed to the crime and was given the death penalty.

    Instead of recognizing Abu-Jamal’s conviction, the federation believes he is innocent and a civil rights hero.

    Good point. Who needs that baby anyway? It's all contaminated from the bathwater.
    This article proves education is worthless and the people who provided it are leeches on society.
    I may be wrong.

    I give it to the Republicans for taking the attention completely away from Wall Street and the lobbyists.
    Which is why you fail to understand what's really going if that's your "logic"
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.
