Lame Email From Teachers Union Threatens Chris Christie With Death

After asking teachers in the state of New Jersey to give up their 4 percent raise and to make bigger contributions to health care, Bergen County Education Association president Joseph Coppola sent this email out to teachers:

“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.”

I suppose there are quite a few things a person can get upset about after reading that, but I think the thing that bothers The Mayor the most is the unoriginality of the email. I mean, The Mayor received that email in 1996 to his Hotmail account. Then again, an email like that is fitting to any teachers union in North America: unoriginal, unimaginative and outdated.

Joseph Coppola, the author of the plagiarized “prayer”, has since apologized, throwing himself on the mercy of bad comedy, but Chris Christie isn’t satisfied with that. He wants the head of Coppola on a school cafeteria plate. Some folks have suggested Chris Christie should just drop the whole thing, water under the bridge so-to-speak. But look at it this way: if a teacher in New Jersey caught one of their students sending out an email like the one Coppola sent out – but instead of Christies name, had Joseph Coppola’s name on it, or a teachers name ~egad~ what do you think would have happened to that child?

Well, for starters, a police investigation would be well under way. A team of child psychiatrists would be opening up the child’s head in order to reprogram the little delinquent, and the parents of the young rapscallion would probably be hauled off to face charges in some sort of court that deals with hate crimes and other crimes against humanity.

People are losing their jobs, their homes and their families. The depression is relentless and is affecting everyone. But look how the teachers union reacts when even the suggestion that their pay should remain the same – not lowered  – but just stays the same. How dare the Governor suggest that teachers should be treated like everyone else! My Lord, what next, take away their 2 months summer vacation, their March break, 3 weeks off at Christmas and their 7 hour work day? Ahhhhhhh, nooooo!!!!!!

What a sad bunch of critters, the revolution can’t come soon enough.

    It’s absolutely maddening. Give up a 4% raise for ONE f***ing year and add about one % to you own health care and no one will be laid off and the budget can be massively closer to “Balanced”…. OR piss, f***ing scream and cry and the whole f***ing thing goes up in flames and you lose your job anyway……. Hmmmmm… I wonder what a liberal will choose….

    You’re right. It can’t come soon enough.

    Teachers up there work seven hours a day. Ours work 6.5 including lunch and a few periods off. Plus one Friday afternoon off every month for “meetings” that couldn’t possibly take place on Tuesday morning.

    Fact is our teachers work 180 days per year which is just under half the year. Their salary, pension, and benefits are each far more than they deserve. If you disagree, open those jobs up to competition and see what happens. In Pennsylvania recently we had 3,000 people looking for teaching jobs.

  3. The Mayor Says:

    In Ontario, we often say, “I’ve never met a teacher that doesn’t have a cottage.”

    Some people think that’s a reference to teachers having summers off, but most of us know it’s said because teachers are the only ones that can afford cottages.

    The Ontario teachers usnion is the richest union in Canada, teachers are paid insane amounts of money and we all know how much time they get off during the year. Yet, as White Letter Andy says, “give up 4% raise for one year”…and watch the crapola hit the fan.

    I’m late on this topic. The teacher’s union in N.J. needs a reality check. Most workers don’t get a raise every year, even in good times.
    FL teachers didn’t get their raise last year..no fuss.
    You can’t get blood out of a turnip. We’re broke.
