The Cage Match in Chicago opened up at about 10 PM on Sunday night when Chicago Teachers went out on strike for the first time in 25 years.Their main issue is the Shitholeization Program,an ongoing policy of Mayor Rahm Emmanuel,notorious 1% hatchet man and former Chief of Staff of Puppet In Chief,Barack Obama.Because teachers have walked off the job in the final leg of the 1% National Puppet Show,The Mayor will not be able to attack the teachers by firing them en masse or hitting them with fines that will permanantly ruin their lives.The 1%'s National Puppet Show could be made to appear ridiculous if he takes a hard line with teachers now because Obama just completed the part of The Puppet Show where he and other Puppets carried on at length in public about how much they care about children,middle class workers and education.1% Bondholders are insisting that Chicago's Public schools be gradually turned into Shitholes so they can then be sold and turned into profitable 1% owned businesses.Chicago Teachers have managed to hit the 1% right in the 'nads at the time when they are least able to defend themselves.It appears they may be using the 1%'s own methods against them...{situation developing}

"It’s impossible to exaggerate the national importance of the teachers’ struggle in Chicago. If the Chicago teachers’ union — 26,000 members strong — goes on strike, many critical yet ignored political issues will go into the national spotlight, exposing nastiness that many politicians and labor leaders would like ignored until after the presidential elections.

"Such a strike would also have the potential to rejuvenate U.S. labor unions by showing them a way out of the never ending wage and benefit concessions demanded by private and public employers. In fact, the Chicago teachers have the potential to become the most important labor struggle in decades, based on the timing, political context, and national relevance of their fight.", from :

I almost don't care about the teacher demands or Rahm's


For me, the key is UNIONS WAKE UP!

I agree & though you extend my point which was closer to the thread topic, I'm pushed to see exactly what your point of contention for 'disagreement' was / is.

The CTU did their homework-Mayor 1% is already begging them to stop nailing the 1% in the 'nads..."For the Children."

Gradually turned into shitholes? 50% (at best) graduation rate. 25% of fourth graders can actually read at a fourth grade level. Teachers are among the highest paid in the nation. You are right that the whole thing is a puppet show. Maybe God in Residence Obama will step in to "solve" the "crises".

LOL-I doubt The Puppet In Chief would touch that mess with a 10' pole or any other kind of pole-this type of crisis is an absolute nightmare because the election is still months away yet Mayor 1% can't use his usual callous brutality without blowing up the puppet show sky-high,Clearly the Chicago Teachers are aware that both Democrats & Republicans are Puppets being manipulated by an entity that stays out of the public eye.Anyhow-you don't often get a peek at people like Mayor 1% squirming with pain-I'm loving it.When you look up the word 'supercreep in the dictionary,'Rahm Emannuel's picture is there.
