    Why the right hates teachers, firefighters and cops.

    Teachers are smarter, firefighters are braver and stronger and cops are authority figures.

    I've mentioned my encounters with folks on the right before on DU...one said of firefighters "It's God's will, some houses will burn." And of cops "I get my public safety from the barrel of a gun."

    Many of these folks home school their kids because they think they are better teachers and they can control what their kids learn.

    So, there you have it in a nutshell: mistrust of learning, distrust of authority and jealousy of those who risk their lives for others.

    Not a pretty picture.

    Everyone who lost money in their retirement accounts in the last 10 years or so have pension envy-the government guarantees the pensions of their employees, but not the private sector's retirement plans.


    As a government employee, I really don't make as much money as conservative politicians imply. Yes, I make more money than the assistant manager at Mickey D's, but a college degree is not required to be an assistant manager at Mickey Ds.

    I suspect liberals only support CHOICE when it's about aborting a baby.

    Of the 3 mentioned in the OP, teachers are the only ones I've ever seen most liberals support. They especially seem to not like cops. Cops bust you for smoking pot most places.

    Keep believing that when the unfunded liability bills come due and the state coffers are dry.

    Um, I don't know about Michigan but no pension is guaranteed in NJ. Especially considering that the government has been raiding the pension system for years without paying back a dime. I have 12 more years to do and I fear that there is going to be nothing in the pension system to allow me to retire but considering my professions, I will be forced into it at age 65.

    We luck out here in NM. I have Public Employee Retirement. All local and state employees pay into it, and the state cannot touch the money. PERA is good for the next half century.

    I don't know anyone who hates teachers, cops or firemen. I will say that the teaching profession, on the whole, has dropped its standards quite a bit from when my mother was a teacher in NYC, but that's another issue. However, the left is projecting. Many of them do hate specific groups of people, including professions. The left loathes the military, for example, not to mention bankers, energy producers and any corporation larger than a lemonade stand.
