Re: “Johnny Key touchy about criticism and silent on key issues about teachers and Little Rock

Yes Jim, apples = unions that support Democrats; oranges = unions that support Republicans. AEA is apples, for sure. They are also part the NEA, of which Wikipedia states "From 1989 through the 2014 election cycle, the NEA spent over $92 million on political campaign contributions, 97% of which went to Democrats."

Re: “Johnny Key touchy about criticism and silent on key issues about teachers and Little Rock

Interesting that in "Another damaging look at Little Rock Police Department," the Washington Post was "singing your song" when author Radley Balko complained:

"When officers have been fired and it takes a lot to get fired they are often able to appeal and win back their jobs, either in court or through the citys Civil Service Commission, usually with the help of the police union."

What's the difference?

Re: “Johnny Key touchy about criticism and silent on key issues about teachers and Little Rock

Tell me more about the "force for good" part. When I was in high school, LRSD teachers abandoned their students while they went on strike. AEA exists for the benefit of teachers, not students and not LRSD. Anyone who says otherwise is (a) lying, and (b) worried about the elimination of a group that has previously helped Democrats get elected.

Re: “Judge denies Courtney Goodson request for injunction against negative advertising

Confirmed that all you've got against him is the company he keeps. We know of at least one patantly BS legal position Goodson has taken.

Re: “Judge denies Courtney Goodson request for injunction against negative advertising

I see complaints related to groups supporting him (or opposing Goodson, I suspect) and his appearance at Republican events, but I can't find where he took a particular legal position, much less one with which I could argue.

Re: “Judge denies Courtney Goodson request for injunction against negative advertising

Tell me some bad particulars on Sterling, Jim. I honestly don't know much about him and could be persuaded.

Re: “Judge denies Courtney Goodson request for injunction against negative advertising

The ruling has nothing to do with Citizens United, dbi.

I'm with you, Jim. What's worse is that I suspect she does know basic constitutional law but was hoping to draw an activist judge like herself who does not care about what the law says.
