    I saw these teachers on the picket line. Many of them could use a 30 mile hike, and many of them couldn’t do 30 blocks!

    This is a waste of time and effort – no matter how strongly these people feel about the issue.

    King Rahm has spoken – and he always gets his way. He appoints the school board -they are in his pocket. He hired Barbara Byrd – - she's in his pocket -no matter what she says.

    It's a DONE DEAL – - the King has spoken~
