    Now you know two things about me 1) why I get pissed over this topic 2) after seeing my property tax bill, you now know why we in Illinois are so pissed over our governor passing a 67% INCOME tax increase!!! We already get raped in property taxes.
    I don't know how else to put it, Illinois is screwing you.

    Yep kinda like what you do, lets see, it's not the teachers fault for our failing educational system, after all if one kid gets a good education then everyone can right ? So it's the students or his parents fault if they don't … isn't that what you said?

    So if one person can become rich in this country, by that same standard everyone can, and if they don't, then isn't it that persons fault and no one else's?

    If one person comes off the welfare rolls and makes a comfortable living for themselves, then those that don't only have themselves to blame correct. It's no one else's fault

    now surely you aren't going to use classic propaganda.....deflect, assign blame to others. Are you ?

    If people ask for lower taxes and it passes, you HAVE to decrease spending. You can't Decrease taxes without decreasing spending and you can't increase spending without increasing taxes. UNLESS you take the spending from something else.

    So my question is... in order for teachers to have this compensation, where do you want that money to come from, taxes? Social security? Policemen salary? fireman salary? governor's salary?

    The rich, historically, dumped chemical wastes in our rivers, polluted the air, for profit. How did you benefit?

    Are you really that ignorant? If so, the education system has failed you,and you it. You stand as an example of what I have been talking about. I have never excused the bad teachers, nor will I excuse bad parents or lazy students. I have always felt that the system can be improved, but as it is, it is adequate, IF the good teachers have good raw material delivered to them by the parents.
    My wife can tell you about the kids who are plenty smart, but get hooked on drugs, and some commit suicide.

    Our society is ill and needs treatment, and all you want to do is crucify the one profession that benefits us the most.

    actually poor people tend to do this more than rich people do; just as poor societies cannot afford clean waste removal and treatment. recycling, after all, is a luxury service.

    it's not. finding an evil "other" to target is par for the course in demagogeury.

    actually, you are wrong....even the dumbest dirt farmer knew to place his outhouse away from his well, or stream, where he got his drinking water.
    If he didn't, he learned quickly enough. Like the commercial says, we all live downstream..
    Back in the 70's when nuclear power plants were the monster du jour, chemical plants were regularly dumping waste products in rivers and streams. Rivers feeding the Great lakes were almost devoid of fish.
    Some rivers actually caught on fire. It was the robber barons and industrialists who placed profit above public safety that the govt finally went after.....lousy liberals and crappy conservatives, both sides were able to get on that band wagon.
