If conservatives weren’t so hateful, the left wouldn’t be forced to resort to things like this:

Bergen County representatives of the state teachers union have ratcheted up the campaign against Governor Christie’s agenda in a fiery memo that encourages members to “get some dirt” and “go public,” and adds the education commissioner to the “attack list.” But it’s the memo’s closing “prayer” that is sure to ignite controversy:

“Dear Lord … this year you have taken away my favorite actor, Patrick Swayze, my favorite actress, Farrah Fawcett, my favorite singer, Michael Jackson, and my favorite salesman, Billy Mays. … I just wanted to let you know that Chris Christie is my favorite governor.”

The memo, sent to locals in the county earlier this week and obtained by The Record on Thursday, is signed by New Jersey Education Association field representatives, including Joe Coppola, president of the Bergen County Education Association.

Can you believe it? This is unconscionable — prayer in the public educational system? If anybody gets fired, that’ll be the reason. Wanting the governor to be dead? Well, that’s what he gets for being a hateful conservative.

The teachers union says it was “a joke” — and if you’ve seen some of the curriculum in public education these days, I don’t doubt it — jokes are what they do best.

    It's not hatred if it's said by a liberal.

    Gotta love those "caring and dedicated" teachers! Can't wait to hear what they think of the children they are supposedly teaching.

    Chris Christie is ruining New Jersey. Other figures have said things like that about Obama and he didn't throw a fit over it. Chris Christie should focus on more important things than what is said about him.

    Avina get your head out of your arse! Or are you a teacher? Private sector employees can no longer afford public employees Cadillac salaries, benefits and retirement entitlements. We are tapped out. No more money, no more taxes, no more gravy train. Enough. Chris Christie is just telling you what the bottom line is – there is no more money!!!

    [...] unions What kind of sick person prays for the death of a politician they disagree with? An ultra-tolerant Leftist of course! If conservatives weren’t so hateful, the left wouldn’t be forced to resort to things like this: [...]

    Christie is a typical right wing coward. When in crisis, attack the least of us. And Nanny, you are nothingi more than a Sean/Glenn/Rush parrott at this point. You don't even need to type out your comments anymore.

    Christie has 1 term written all over him, much like the fraud in VA.

    you get what you pay for…NJ has the top schools in the country, which means your kid gets a top quality education and ultimately goes on to bigger and better things, with more opportunities and are better prepared for college and the "real world". As a result taxes are higher, but your property value is worth more. You get what you pay for. If you don't like it, move somewhere else where the taxes aren't as high. That's how the system works. Move down south where taxes are cheaper, but in turn the education is below standard.

    In other words, If you can't afford to maintain that nice sports car, simply don't buy it. Taxes have always been high in NJ. It's a problem that has been around for well over 20 years, this is no secret. If there's a money shortage let's start by having Christie contribute his share/his sacrifice , he's a public employee.

    Oh and with regard to teacher "Cadillac salaries" You mean Ford Tempo Salaries… teachers didn't create this problem.

    Teachers get paid ONLY for the 9 months of the year they teach–they can however stretch that pay to last the nine months. Also–ALL employees have the weekend off and most have Christmas off–so please, Blow Hard, I mean Work Hard, check your facts before going on a rant.
