    She should accept the fact that she is in the minority–this is all about the greater good–its not just about her. She still gains from what she hates–she is not prevented from venting her right, wing-nut ideology.

      Troughers are NEVER the “greater good”. Thanks fr the laugh you clown!

      As for her being in the minority- doesn’t matter if she is or not if what the trougher union is doing is unconstitutional.

      The US Constitution was written to protect the minority from the tyranny of the majority.

      I suggest you take you miniature brain and read Knox v SEIU, good case, for a change.

    A gay person in a minority-group might be subjected to the tyranny of the majority. This teacher is not being subjected to tyranny! Keep the personal insults down and stick to the topic please.

    Bottom line. This lawsuit is not about freedom of speech. It is not about right to work.

    It is about cutting off funding for the Democratic party.

    Not that there’s anything intrinsically wrong with that.

    CTA is a big union that spends lots of money on political campaigns and propositions. BUT, according to open secrets: “Whatever slice you look at, business interests dominate, with an overall advantage over organized labor of about 15-to-1. …”

    In other words, if this lawsuit is successful, it will make it MUCH CHEAPER for business interests to purchase THEIR politicians.

    Not to mention, make it much easier for the Christian Educators Association International (the MAIN plaintiff) to get God back in the classroom “where he belongs”, if you believe in that kind of thing instead of, you know, the Constitution.

    I would think an omnipotent god could get into a classroom without the help of a primary school teacher, but I have heard he works in mysterious ways.
