Mitt Romney Speech

Seems everybody's talkin' about Mitt Romney saying 47% of Americans would almost automatically vote for President Barack Obama because they were “dependent” on the government, in part because they received government benefits and paid no federal income taxes. The Republican presidential candidate's remarks were being talked about on the radio ALL DAY LONG...

But what no one seems to be talking about: The Chicago Teacher's Strike - blogger Alex Gordon writes that he believes the Teacher's Union Strike should be in every Romney speech. Here's a snippet:

"The current teacher’s union’s strike in Chicago is reaching its second week without much movement toward an end. Right now, most parents support the teachers but many dread the consequences of a strike going on for much longer. The strike reflects the ongoing conflict between teacher’s unions and local governments as efforts to cut costs and reign in funds are countered by efforts to ensure quality pay for the important work of teaching, colored by the struggle our nation is facing in bringing our school quality up to a first-world level across the nation." read »

COMMENTING CHARGES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
