Responding to the ridicule of teachers and the teaching profession by politicians and self proclaimed "experts"!

We Aint Got a Barrel of Money ! (Except for more wars that is)

It's a sad commentary when the government has tons of money for Iraq, Afghanistan and now Syria,  $100M jets planes that no one wants or needs, a myriad of military bases on foreign soil,  foreign aid to dictatorships and corrupt politicians, and big bank bailouts (with no one going to prison)  but no money for us (the citizens of our own country) !
No money to fund Social Security, pension obligations of cities and states, Medicare, help balance state and city budgets, repair infrastructure and create jobs.
The priority of the government should be America first but without a cadre of lobbyists and political donors promoting the interests of our citizens this will never happen !
It's sad to see how far the U.S. has come - backwards !
