Your Neil Cavuto moment: Wisconsin, in so many ways class dismissed

We haven’t had one of these in a while. Neil Cavuto on the teacher’s sick out in Wisconsin. Direct and pointed. “Class is dismissed … in very respect.”

It took Neil a while to come down on this issue but his points are well made. What message do you send to your students when you teach them it’s OK to lie, and shirk your responsibility. Plus … being a public servant means you already knew you would not get rich doing the job. You took the job because you understood it to be a calling. Defining public service.


Precisely, Mr. Cavuto.

    The Legacy of Bill Clinton: He taught a generation of students that it's OK to lie, shirk responsibility, and recieve the no sex Lewinsky. That "IS" using the Bully Pulpit!!!

    I hear Neil talking. Good stuff.  Now he needs to spin it a bit.  Why aren't the teachers unions demanding that the education department make cuts above the classroom level in order to get more computers or more teachers. 

    How many non-teacher Education Dept folks were there?  Are they using teachers human shields?

    You guys are missing the forest for the trees. 100,000 showed up today in WI-and support was shown in many state capitals today. It wasn't for WI teachers' unions-it was  about what is happening today to us!!!

    Scotty has opened quite the can of worms. What this has become about is the rights of ordinary people in a democracy. — rights many  want to deny, whether gay rights, women's rights,  retirement rights, or the right to the best health a nation can provide to all its citizens. Unions, through their political contributions, support the basic freedoms, protections, and resources we all require to have a decent life and live in a civilized society.

    So, society wasn't "decent and civilized" before unions?


    Do bussed in "protesters" count as real Wisconsin protesters?


    Is the denial of rights limited to Republicans?  What about the right to life, the right to own a gun and defend your family and property, the right not to have your property seized by the government in the name of taxes, the right to run a business as you see fit, the right NOT to buy health insurance, the right NOT to contribute to government Ponzi schemes, the right NOT to belong to a union or the right not to have  your union dues supporting candidates you do not endorse, the right NOT to buy expensive union sponsored/owned health care plans, etc., etc.


    Thanks to the Democrats, you won't be able to afford to retire, nor will your children or grandchildren.


    "Scotty" has rightfully opened a can of worms that should have been opened decades ago.  The unions and their Democrat backers are getting hit in the face with a word they used to think they owned: fairness.
