Pleasanton: Where Teachers and Unionized Workers are Enemy #1
Original post made by Sal, Downtown, on Nov 8, 2012
Isn’t it heartwarming to watch residents kick around teachers who are responsible for educating the future of this country. Nevermind that Pleasanton has topnotch schools and consistently improving test scores, because that might get in the way of your unhinged sadism. It would be much better if teachers received slave wages in our race to the bottom. God knows the typical teacher in Pleasanton is a greedy multimillionaire being escorted to school in their stretched limos.
Speaking of multimillionaires, isn’t it a shame that butchers at Raley’s would fight for their benefits? They must be out of their minds and they should really know their place, which means bowing to the mean-spirited hate of local conservatives. It’s really great that wealthy grocery store butchers are the target of your hatred. BUTCHERS!!!!
We also can’t forget those super affluent union workers at Castlewood Country Club. How dare they picket and fight for a livable wage! They were scaring my daughter Buffy and daddy’s golf short game hasn’t been the same since they started protesting. Who cares if some court of law sided with their rights and determined the lockout was in bad faith. Obama must have paid off that judge.
So remember, Pleasanton has a message for all you blue collar union types. We aren’t going to tolerate your million dollar salaries!! We Pleasantonians never saw a unionized worker or tax we liked. And one more thing! Don’t force us to pay $200 per year for a parcel tax! We have flat screen TVs, bbqs, mud flaps, and Romney t-shirts to purchase!
