Remember, this isn't a private citizen, this is a UNION. And UNIONS have a bloody history of violence and intimidation in America. Just like SEIU, Teachers Unions aren't just a bunch of young women fresh out of college teaching by day and running a union by night. They're just as full of thugs as any other union, just with a higher percentage of female thugs.
In my home state, as I'm sure they are in yours, Teachers Unions are expert at propaganda, they have infected our system of government schools to the point that taxpayers feel powerless to throw them out. And that's in the reddest state in the Union.
I wouldn't want to meet a New Jersey union thug in a dark alley...

Union Memo Hints At Gov.'s Death
Teachers Union's Memo The Latest Salvo In War Of Words With Gov. Christie
HACKENSACK, N.J. (CBS) ―New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie isn't laughing about a teachers union's memo that hints of his death.
The memo is the latest salvo in a war of words between Christie and the union over wage and benefits concessions.
The Record of Bergen County obtained the Bergen County Education Association memo that includes a closing prayer:
"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."
Association president Joe Coppola says the "prayer" was a joke and was never meant to be made public.
Christie spokesman Michael Drewniak says there's nothing professional about the group.
Meanwhile, Drewniak says the governor is also considering reopening union contracts to try to get salary concessions at the institutes of higher learning.
Unionized employees at the schools deferred a 3.5 percent increase last year when former Gov. Jon Corzine reopened their contracts.
College and university officials are considering cuts to staff and programs to offset a $173 million cut to higher education in Christie's proposed budget.
On Tuesday, Christie extended a deadline for school districts to receive additional state aide in exchange for teachers agreeing to wage freezes.
