Teachers in West Chicago School District 33 appear set to strike over a dispute about health insurance.

The Daily Herald reports the teachers’ union filed the necessary paperwork on Friday, just a few hours before students left for winter break.

When classes resume on January 7th, teachers may not show up.

The school district recently capped the amount it would pay toward teachers’ health insurance premiums — a move the union vigorously objected.

    Everyone….

    …It is obvious that people on both sides of the gun debate are afraid.

    …as our complex world is increasingly dangerous.

    …The “Definition of Citizenship” is what is at stake.

    …”Self Government” doesn't exist everywhere else.

    …Many men have died to preserve these rights.

    … I've been to Mexico, it’s nice.
    …but I don’t want to live there.

    …I really don’t want to be Kenyan either.

    Respectfully.
