do they want more money by taking it from people making less than them?

i didn't know that form of socialism- although i guess i have seen it with the bank bailouts here.

that's a new twist on the old definition of socialism.

So while you pay out of pocket for your child to go to a private school, your taxes are used to educate someone else's kids. Seems like a raw deal.

I was paying to educate someone else's kid before I was married with a child. Hell, as an owner of investment properties I'm paying to educate multiple kids, cest la vie

Two tears in a bucket, mother .....

That's ok, she doesn't know who Chi was or what he did but hey, he was a good protester so she likes him. Roll eyes. That's how she teaches her students. The T-shirt look cool so it is cool.

LOL, I went to school for 12 years and all I got was this T-shirt. But it's cool looking.

Wow...
There you go being a Good Little Leftist......Trying to deflect the issue.....Are you one of the Commies in the video?

Maybe some of you should step into a classroom in Englewood (a Chicago neighborhood) before you speak.
Incase you can't figure it out, this thread is about those stupid teachers in the video!!!!!

Because things like this are non-issues and I the tenuous link established by editing and leading questions are something that the OP probably didn't into consideration? Sorry, but it's best to actually post about something that actually matters.

How's that deflection? I'm simple stating that the "commies" in the video are a non-issue. So what if they're political affiliation is different then mine?

Some of my teachers were VERY conservative, but they didn't bring it into the classroom and taught the facts. Isn't it possible that this is the case with them?

Racist and sexist group, obviously. Almost 100% white females.

Does that mean socialists are racist and sexist?
