I might have to start stalking my new hero.

I'm not even going to muddy this up with crazy rhetoric.






Well done, Mr. Stewart. Well done.

Brilliant. Love that man.

Kimberly said...

Too bad Jon is already married. He's even hotter to me now ;)

Part time...whatever. Nothing annoys me more than complete and total ignorance.

prettylittlereckless said...

haha too funny. I wish someone would do a skit on our future, you know, the *children* in about 10-20 years. Show how behind we are because schools and teachers can't afford to actually teach them.

I think the politicians have awakened a sleeping giant.

jillsmo said...

DAMN straight. He's the only "news" I watch anymore

Vodka Mom said...

I would love all lurkers to fess up and comment. COME ON.


And watch this WHOLE THING!!!!!!!!

Jenn @ Juggling Life said...

Nobody says it like Jon Stewart. Sing it, man.

I just need to make sure you heard the joke going around about the corporate exec, the tea-partier and the union rep. If not, email me!

I saw this on the Daily Show yesterday! I LOVED it! Jon Stewart is great!

Leanne said...

I kinda got stuck half way through on the teacher thing. I imagine your teachers in the USA are similar to those in Australia and there is absolutely nothing part time about them. Bloody hell.
I have no idea who this Jon Stewart dude is (and what many of these issues are about) but I'm kinda liking him ...
Ok, back to watch the rest ...
Cheers

I'm de-lurking.
I absolutely love John Stewart.
I can not believe the stuff that comes out of some people's mouths (Fox). How can they possibly look people in the face and spout that rubbish, teachers working part time ha bloody ha!
Sometimes I wonder whether they actually went to school and learnt anything, they seem to have a strangle hold on total ignorance and stupidity.
Can't stand Fox and I'm embarrassed that it is owned by a fellow Aussie and he lets crap like that air!
Yay for the Daily Show.

Ladybird World Mother said...

Ok I have a problem. The video says that I cant watch it as its out of reach or something. Huh?? Anyway, am going to google Jon Steward and various other comments that people have made and see if I can find this thing... failing that, can you pop by and give me the link again... the suspense is KILLING me!! BTW am liking your new home blog... xxxxx

Brian Miller said...

you know we love you VM...he fricken rocks...and so do teachers...guess they are upset they only got a 5% pay raise in the senate...

duffylou said...

Bravo, John Stewart. Bravo teachers everywhere. Hock ptooie Fox New. I spit on your so called "experts".

Lynn MacDonald said...

Isn't Jon Stewart the best? Maybe i should have started my Professional Talk Show Guest career with him. HMMM...i am reassessing my entire life now.

This was awesome...as are you VodkaMom!

Lili said...

De-lurking :)

Jon is awesome.

I need tea this morning because it's frightening to me how easily adults in power can overlook what is best for their kids.

Do these nutjobs think that when these kids are grown and unskilled that they'll have any desire to care for an elder generation that let them down?

Ugh...

MiMi said...

He is really smart. He needs to run for office.

Captain Dumbass said...

Damn video won't play here. It has to link to another site but it just goes to the site, not the video. : (

Wendy said...

I *did* watch the whole thing!
And i'm only a *part-time* lurker.

Huh. Told her!

=-)

But seriously? I worked at a local public elementary (volunteer for 6 years and as paid staff for about 5 years, and drove school buses for about 8 years at LMNtary and Middle schools). I KNOW (most of) the teachers i met are Hard Working People who truly care about children.
I have a problem, however, with states like coughNewYorkcough that have unions where there are teachers in the system who *CANNOT* be fired, who show up everyday for work, but just sit in an empty room NOT teaching because they are UNFIT teachers!
I think THAT is a damn crying shame! I think THAT should be outlawed! I think THAT gives ALL the other teachers in this country a bad name, and a slap in the face and a punch to the groin.

Okay.
NOW you want me to go back to my corner?

I love you VM!
=-)

I'm still trying to figure out what word he said that was bleeped out.

Quite frankly, for all of the BS that I see educators dealing with when I help out in my daughter's school or go on field trips, $76K simply wouldn't be enough...

Ice Queen said...

I saw your tweet about this yesterday and I was dying. My favorite line is "Maybe your mom was a shitty teacher!"

Anne said...

LOVE IT.

Rene/ Not The Rockefellers said...

Meet you at Loehmann's Deb...
3 ish? :)

Cora said...

Oh my goodness, soooooooooo hilarious! Even daycare teachers are working at home after their shifts end, I know that first hand. Anyone who thinks teachers don't work effing hard is an idiot. Like you said before, I wonder what THEIR teachers are thinking about all of this?! My goodness.

UrbanCountryMom said...

I LOVE it! He is spot on.

♥ Braja said...

Even I found that funny, and I didn't understand half of it....
:)))

As Cape Cod Turns said...

OMG.
Yeah teachers work part time. Some people are so stupid.

I think I might love John Stewart.

jessica said...

I would LOVE to hear what that guy's mother has to say about him calling her out as never working after 3!!!!

I am a preschool teacher- of 2 year olds for crying outloud!- and work after school and weekends on lessons, finding interesting things for the kids, new activities, emailing nervous parents, sending links to articles about potty training and biting, working on our class website, editing pictures, writing funny anecdotes about our day, getting activities ready for the next day, looking up and printing out state standards as they apply to our projects... that doesn't even include what i do during the actual class!! it's way more than painting and changing diapers.
Although I must admit, my neighbors are very jealous of my '99 SUV with the dent in the back. What can I say, I like to show off with all that money I make.

only a movie said...

We don't have Loehmann's up here, but my son and I were cracking up the day after that aired, because at three o'clock...we were shopping in a discount store. (But then I went home and wrote and IEP and thought about finishing my report cards.)
Jon Stewart is my hero.
Love your new layout over here. Hope all is well with you and yours. xo
