I say, this Okey chap is not what I’d call an OK chap. His priorities are most decidedly twisted. How on earth could he be taking money away from Race to the Top simply to save teachers? Why do we want teachers when we can have reform, like school closings and merit pay, that truly enable noble ventures like the Smellington Academy to take their places? Our President is most definitely a right-thinking fellow, which is why he’s promised to veto these absurd measures.
With fewer unionized teachers there’ll be more opportunity to fulfill the golden vision of at-will employment for all. If I’m paying the salary, I am entitled to fire the employee for whatever I wish, and why not teachers too? What if they aren’t teaching the Smellington way? Do I want my teachers blathering on about urchin’s rights, or training them to work long hours for low pay, thus enriching people who actually know how to invest money, rather than frittering it away on rent and groceries?
I’m relieved that New York has finally come along and decided to accept the wise reforms that Arne is promoting. Eventually we will rid ourselves of those awful unions altogether and pay workers what we decide. Only then will we be able to withdraw that awful minimum wage, bring back company stores, and have workers go to their graves owing employers money. Surely by then we’ll be able to pass debts to next of kin, or at the very least have the government guarantee it.
I see a bright future for our organization, and for our visionary philosophy.
Smellington G. Worthington III
