More Firemen, More Policemen, More Teachers

12 Jun

The conservative crazies think we need to get rid of more of these kinds of people that just drag our society down.

Austerity.

Need to free things up so that the the people that matter,… big banks, big corporations and their CEO’s, big energy, and especially the big finance people that absolutely need that certainty,  (a word I’m very tired of because it doesn’t seem to pertain to the average person),… more than the rest of us,— can save the country.

But,—- who are they saving it for??

More Firemen, More Policemen, More Teachers

First, Mitt Romney ridiculed Obama for saying that we need more public employment:

He says we need more firemen, more policemen, more teachers. Did he not get the message in Wisconsin?

Afterwards, some commentators wondered, couldn’t he have chosen different professions to ridicule?

And the answer is no. When we talk about public workers, that’s pretty much who we’re talking about:

When we look at the unprecedented public austerity in this recession, we’re basically looking at cutbacks on education and public protection.
