Santorum sleds down slippery slope of HB 151 (for those who say no, that won't happen)

Here you go.

Next? Nicaragua.

I’m guessing the list of countries we need to add to HB 151 will be longer than the list of countries that fall under the moniker “coalition forces” when we talk about military efforts in Iraq.

  1. Then such politicians like Santorum, Mandel, et. al., get to run for re-election or for a higher office and say how THEY supported legislation that kept those EVIL active and retired teachers from investing in IMMORAL countries, then they’ll eventually blame the IMMORAL, EVIL teacher unions somewhere along the way, then those IMMORAL, EVIL public schools will be dragged into it somewhere, including how we need more CHARTER SCHOOLS (White Hat to the rescue!), and the beat goes on! Pffttt!!! And there you’ll see, somewhere in their records, how White Hat and their ilk are lining the pockets of the pandering politicians. Bought and paid for. Such politicians are just political ho’s. The dummies can’t see it, but the rest of us see it very clearly. And – WHY do you think the WSJ left that inconvenient little truth about Mandel’s GE stock out of their publication? On whose side are they, anyway? Get it? It’s all about PROFIT, and there’s nothing wrong with making a profit but there’s everything wrong with the hit they’ve ordered on public education, educators, and their pension funds. The hit they’ve ordered on us is designed to line their pockets at the expense of public schools, public school students and families, and those who have worked and are currently working in the public schools. Notice that HB 151 doesn’t apply to Alternative Retirement Plans? And what are they trying to get started, at the urging of VENDORS that sell such plans, in HB 152??? And who gives more campaign contributions – vendors or teachers? Follow the money, honey!!!

  2. Brian, yes I do recall. There’s on question that as individuals, we might make different choices and feel a compulsion to do so. But there’s no parallel to that in the pension funds. And the WSJ’s failure in its front page story today to mention the GE stock held but eventually sold by Mandel, and his reasons for why he held it and then chose to sell it, is inexcusable, from a journalistic perspective.Thanks for commenting.

  3. Not surprising. As you may recall, I originally supported the bill until Sudan was added at the eleventh hour. There are too many countries where a plausible case can be made by someone to disinvest.When you start going down that road, it’ll never end.
