There once was a young woman who had very expensive tastes; she would only consort with men who could give her everything she wanted. In return, she would give them what they wanted. When a man could no longer give her what she wanted, she would throw a temper tantrum and make life miserable for everyone. Finally, if the man did not do what she wanted (and give her what she wanted), she would replace him.
The Chicago teachers union is this woman. Mayor Rahm Emmanuel is the Chicago teachers unions latest boyfriend; and he can no longer afford his mistress! They put him in power (gave him what he wanted), but now the boyfriend realizes that he can no longer afford to give her everything she wants. The woman has bankrupted her man! Now that rich, spoiled, manipulative and selfish girlfriend is making life miserable for all the families of Chicago. Our local politicians have a lover like that, too, and her name is New York State United Teachers.
