I will protect your pensions. Nothing about your pension is going to change when I am governor. - Chris Christie, "An Open Letter to the Teachers of NJ" October, 2009

Cover Your Ears!

Poor Wally Edge gets a case of the vapors:
Robert Reboli, a basic skills and remedial English teacher at Madison Avenue Elementary School in Irvington, has some advice for his fellow educators as they prepare to fight Gov.Christopher Christie’s proposed state budget: “Never trust a fat f***.”

That’s what Reboli posted on a Facebook group called New Jersey Teachers United Against Governor Chris Christie’s Pay Freeze, which has more than 57,000 fans -- a powerful grass roots tool as the teachers union fights Christie’s proposed state budget. 

But comments posted on the social networking site – most of them during school hours -- often get personal as they exercise their first amendment rights.
 Quick, get the fainting coach! And during their lunch hours! On school internet connections!

You know, Wally, if the Governor of NJ told your employer to expect a 15% cut in aid, and then cut it all, and then said you need to take a pay freeze and pay more for your benefits, and kept saying he wasn't demonizing you, except when he was, you might be a bit impolite yourself.

And nice job looking up the salaries of teachers and adding it to the story. Classy.
