As others here have pointed out, this person is trying to use humor and poorly constructed satire to make her point ... and as others have pointed out, this is a petty issue not worthy of our time or keystrokes when there are major issues in the government schools -- such as Leftist indoctrination and failure to educate -- that should concern us much more than this dunce's attempted humor.

I'm just not going to get my panties in a knot about this one.

She is lying to herself too. She is a boat and she could float in the Hudson River, and she thinks she is Slim Pickens..

I think this was wonderfully funny.  Let's not get crazy about the small things. A little tongue and cheek humor can go a long way reaching an understanding between people (and kids). I think we should focus our outrage where it counts most. That being what and how they are teaching our children. Things like socialism is good/ rich people are bad/the indoctrination the Teachers use by way of their revisionist history. Or not teaching them to read. Those are the things I have a hard time dealing with.

Hostage should be used when speaking of the other kids who have to set there while their time is bing used up with the teacher trying to deal with the kid that should have been sent home. If she really belives she got away with Lieing to the parents- then she has never been a partent; as a parent my next question would have been ' Now what's the kids name your talking about? Cause it sure as hell isn't my kid!"

Are we seriously going to pretend there was something wrong with that video? Do we have to act like liberals and make a big deal out of nothing.... arguments like this gives no credit to the Tea Party, it only makes us look like we cry wolf over everything.

Chris, you're wrong. The title of the video tells it all. A Chicago teacher/administrator talking to the New York Communist teacher's union meeting. Her laughter was real, and she's proud of her dis-service.

Far too many parents don't want to hear the truth about their children today and the fact that teachers are so limited in ways to discipline unruly children makes it difficult for me to find fault with this educators method of beating the system.  I think our battles should be picked with greater care.

Give me a break. She was just putting humor into her talk! Why turn it into an absurdity with your mis-leading headline!   C. Woods

Joe Biden Vows: Give Taxpayer-Funded Obamacare To All Illegal Aliens In U.S.

Former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidate Joe Biden is vowing to give Obamacare, funded by American taxpayers, to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States.

During an interview with Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart, Biden forgot that Obamacare technically bans illegal aliens from enrolling in healthcare plans — although illegal aliens are still able to obtain subsidized and free healthcare at Americans’ expense — and promised that under his plan, all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens would be able to get Obamacare.

The exchange went as follows:

DIAZ-BALART: When I … NBC moderated that first debate with you, I didn’t … I don’t recall a clear answer, under your plan should … would the 11, 12 million undocumented immigrants that live in the United States, that have been here many for generations, would they have access …


DIAZ-BALART: — to health insurance.

BIDEN: Yes, they … if they can buy into the system like everybody else.

DIAZ-BALART: Because you know, in [Obamacare] they can’t.

BIDEN: Yeah. Yeah, I know. Well they can, that’s my point. They continue to be able to do that.

DIAN-BALART: They cannot under the ObamaCare.

BIDEN: Well and that’s my point, they will though. They will be able to buy into … [illegal aliens] would be able to buy in, just like anyone else could.

Biden joins Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg — among other 2020 Democrats — in committing to forcing American taxpayers to pay for healthcare for illegal aliens who arrive in the U.S.

Already, due to loopholes, American taxpayers are spending nearly $20 billion every year to provide illegal aliens with subsidized healthcare, emergency room visits, and other health services.

Under the 2020 Democrats’ plan to provide taxpayer-funded healthcare to all illegal aliens living in the U.S., Americans would be billed potentially $660 billion every decade just to cover the costs. Other research has found that the plan would cost Americans at least $23 billion every year.

As Breitbart News has reported, experts have said that giving taxpayer-funded healthcare to effectively all foreign nationals who can make it to America’s borders would drive “strong incentives for people with serious health problems to enter the country or remain longer than their visas allow in order to get government-funded care.”

Despite 2020 Democrats’ continued push for taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens, American voters are overwhelmingly opposed to the plan. The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey revealed that the healthcare-for-illegal-aliens plan is the least popular policy position, with opposition from 62 percent of U.S. voters.

Similarly, a CNN poll from July discovered that 63 percent of likely swing voters oppose providing healthcare to illegal aliens, along with nearly 6-in-10 of all likely U.S. voters and 61 percent of moderates. A Rasmussen Reports survey also found that likely voters, by a majority of 55 percent, oppose giving healthcare to even the most low-income illegal aliens.
