    The idea behind Reaganomics is that deregulation would allow the economy to soar, instead it allowed greed in Wall Street to bust our economy causing the greatest recession (job killer) since the Great Depression.

    As to why anyone would think that was a good idea, beats the hell out of me. And the kicker is, some still do! Can you believe that???

    I will have to backtrack on the 150k. Apparently those were the principal's of the school. However, this is straight salary for 9 months, not counting benefits.

    Salary: $45,801
    Position: Elementary Teacher
    Full/Part Time: Fulltime
    Years Teaching: 2


    Position: Elementary Teacher
    Years Teaching: 15
    Full/Part Time: Fulltime
    Salary: $80,369

    Salary: $104,066
    Position: Elementary Teacher
    Full/Part Time: Fulltime
    Years Teaching: 34
    Those salaries were for only 9 months of work. Let's annuitize it:

    The new teacher making Salary: $45,801 for only 9 months work is the equivalent of $61,068 for 12 months work.

    The 15 year teacher making Salary: $80,369 for only 9 months work is equivalent of $107,198.67 for 12 months work

    And finally the teacher near retirment at Salary: $104,066 for only 9 months work is equivalent of $138,754.67 for 12.

    Again, not counting any benefits. and again, all at the expense of the tax payer and the state's budgets/deficits.

    Re: Unions threaten Business

    BTW, there is a story at MSNBC that I just read, indicating that WI unions and disctricts are rushing through a lot of contracts before the law (which can save the districts loads of money) is actually published by the SOS.

    Does that seem like the actions of a negotiator that really has the best interst of the tax payer in mind?

    That is one of the big problems with public sector unions. In the private sector, negotiators for the company need to keep union contracts as low as possible, no such problem on the public side.

    I wonder...what exactly were people expecting from trickle down economics...that **** was going to magically just happen? People were required to work...and guess what...opportunites were there then. People did quite well for themselves.

    You want to know another sad reality? There are an awful lot of people today (more than then) that are waiting for that rainbow to shine out of Obama's ass and land on them. Guess what. It isnt going to happen. Success comes today just as it did then...from hard work. The opportunities to succeed were far greater under Reagan than they were under Carter. Maybe the people that incessantly bitch about getting pee'd on ought to stop looking at what Reagan did and try examining their own level of effort in this game.

    I didnt have much of what you would call a family growing up-but what I did have taught me valuable lessons in how not to live. I damn sure didnt have anyone giving me silver spoons. I went from nothing to being very comfortable, to having 4 kids and providing quite well for them and am watching them all enjoy success as well. It wasnt easy...it required hard work and sacrifice.

    It aint magic. It aint rocket science. And life doesnt change just by pretending it OUGHT to and that if it doesnt then it is not FAIR.

    So, when Obama killed jobs, that didn't have a negative effect on things?
