New Jersey Teachers Unions must be Tea Party advocates

Death wish expressed toward Governor Christie. If I have the mainstream media meme right, this sort of violence is a Tea Party phenomenon.

UPDATE: I have no problem with jokes in poor taste – those are my specialty – but take a look at who this Union chief’s favorites are – that’s alarming!

The e-mail in question was sent by Bergen County Education Association president Joseph Coppola in the form of a prayer, which said:

“Dear lord,’ this year you have taken away my favorite actor, Patrick Swayze, my favorite actress, Farrah Fawcett, my favorite singer, Michael Jackson, and my favorite salesman, Billy Mays. I just wanted to let you know that Chris Christie is my favorite governor.”

    Well let’s prove that our side can take a joke, even one in bad taste.

    the best way to deal with unionized government employees is to publish the details of their salaries and benefits, and compare them to what employees in the private sector receive. then, the support for these new princes and princesses of government largess will evaporate as the electorate realizes that we’re going broke paying for government employees who work shorter hours, have more vacation, sick days and personal days than we do, have more job security than we do, and get more pay and much much higher benefits [medical, dental, pension, vacation, you name it.] it’s the 600 pound gorilla in the room of any discussion of government deficits.

    This has been done, but not enough attention paid to it…

    It turns out there really is growing inequality in America. It’s the 45% premium in pay and benefits that government workers receive over the poor saps who create wealth in the private economy.

    And the gap is growing. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), from 1998 to 2008 public employee compensation grew by 28.6%, compared with 19.3% for private workers. In the recession year of 2009, with almost no inflation and record budget deficits, more than half the states awarded pay raises to their employees.

    Total compensation per hours worked:
    Public $39.66
    Private $27.42

    NO, not just publish an article abour inequality. A listing, in the wall street journal, or USA Today with names and addresses of these spoiled jackasses that are taking down the country. The union bosses, and their sick entitled pay plans so people can picket their houses
