01[12:24] {@Threei}  yeah, not cooperating
01[12:26] {@Threei}  one of major Victoria FB pages that normally just reports events, not comments on them, suddenly spoke on teachers:
[12:29] {Alexs} actually teachers are doing right thing, if they can get a raise why the shouldn't?
01[12:29] {@Threei}  if I can get a gun and go rob a bank, why shouldn't I?
[12:34] {troub} cause down here someone will standing in line will pull a gun and shoot your rear end off--for breaking in line.
[12:34] {Alexs} it's a free country you can try...
[12:35] {dino} problem alexs is the raises are given by school, which is paid for by taxpayers without consent
01[12:35] {@Threei}  yes, so as teachers decided that they can go ahead and strike, givernment announced lockout
01[12:35] {@Threei}  which is a good equivalent of someone with a gun in a lineup :)
01[12:36] {@Threei}  exactly dino... how about going directly to taxpayers and asking for a raise
01[12:36] {@Threei}  answer will be unequivocal
01[12:36] {@Threei}  but blackmailing government is somehow OK
01[12:37] {@Threei}  using students as hostages
01[12:37] {@Threei}  and now new shot's fired:
01[12:37] {@Threei}  BREAKING: The BC Labour Relations Board has ruled this morning that teachers must administer final exams to all students in grades 10 through 12, and submit final marks by June 20th.
[12:39] {Alexs} if I were taecher I would fight for my salary by all available means, no doubt
01[12:40] {@Threei}  well, claiming that you fight for childrens' education and going on strik two weeks before finals reeks of hypocrisy
[12:41] {dino} or extortion
01[12:41] {@Threei}  and demanding a raise just bvecause you can strike? if that's right thing to do, why anyone works at all?
[12:41] {dptl} vlo may be .40 break short again
[12:41] {Alexs} otherwise nobody would care
01[12:42] {@Threei}  so when your local fireman goes on strike right after the call...?
[12:43] {Alexs} I think that fire services must be private
[12:43] {Alexs} then there will be no strikes
01[12:43] {@Threei}  must be and are are different things
01[12:44] {@Threei}  education m,ight be private too
01[12:44] {@Threei}  then there wouldn't be any strikes?

01[12:54] {@Threei}  how's this for the irony of the highest caliber:
01[12:54] {@Threei}  - Follow up: Iran reportedly now sending some military forces to help fight ISIS in Iraq; have placed forces near Baghdad and other cities
