de blasio thinks mayors are key to stopping health care bill


here he comes to save the day! mayor de blasio said friday that he believes mayors can stop the republican congress from passing its health care bill, at least in its current form, by joining together to lobby their senators. “those senators need to hear from bipartisan voices in their states. no one is in a better position to organize that locally than mayors,” de blasio said during a talk with politico at the u.s. conference of mayors’ meeting in miami beach. “so we’re working with a group of mayors around the country who want to provide that leadership locally and focus that energy over the next few days.” it’s not the first time the mayor has sought to gather other pols and shape the national discussion — before the election, there was his ill-fated pro...

louisiana teacher arrested during meeting for questioning superintendent's ridic


during a school board meeting on monday, english language arts teacher deyshia hargrave was removed from the meeting after repeatedly asking why the unelected superintendent was getting a $38,000 raise with his 3-year contract extension, while the teachers haven't seen a raise in years. in fact, as reddit user ragincajuns pointed out, the teachers actually took a pay cut in the last ten years because the school board claimed that there wasn't enough money to pay all the teachers, so in an act of solidarity, the teachers collectively decided to forgo one paycheck each so that everyone could keep their jobs. what needs to be looked at is how teachers pay actually went down the last ten years in vermilion parish. teachers used to get 13 checks a year, but the parish claimed they didn’t h...
