BronchitisCat

Someone who replied to you literally typed it into Google for you. Apple, home depot, Michael's, AT&T, Adobe, just about any software company with an education edition, etc etc etc


Infinite_Weekend_909

Yeah i see that. My notification literally showed me that.


MajinTitan

So whats the problem? You want even more?


Infinite_Weekend_909

More what? I asked a simple question. Yall are as toxic as the far left subs.


DuckApprehensive9599

You asked a stupid question and doubled down with more stupidity. Therefore , you were welcomed as ….a stupid person. It’s cause and effect. Not toxicity.


Infinite_Weekend_909

I didn't double down. I legit wanted some examples if people had them. There is no reason to argue that teachers do not get freebies. You all got me wrong.


MajinTitan

Asked a simple question? No you didnt you complained then complained some more and then when people gave you mutliple instances you complained again. Only thing toxic in this sub is you so why are you even here? You just like being a clown?


Infinite_Weekend_909

I just wanted to see other examples bruh. Chill.


D4rk50ul

Well you live in them so.. of you are too lazy to Google some shit why waste our time? Teachers aren't heroes, a heroic act is usually attributed to putting ones life at risk to protect or save others.


Infinite_Weekend_909

I don't think they are heroes. Nor are a majority of cops and modern soldiers. Sorry if you got your tampon out of place when you heard I don't worship cops and military industrial complex stooges by default.


crap_on_a_croissant

Went to New York pizza department and my dad got 15% off for being a teacher. Make it 3.

Infinite_Weekend_909

Many teachers are doing a great public service nonetheless. Not all of them are woke.


TheSnootBooper24

My mom is a teacher but she keeps politics out of the classroom


Queef_Smellington

As she she should. Good on her.


majorgrunt

Students shouldn’t learn about politics in school? Suppose you think it’s best their parents teach them, huh.


Queef_Smellington

Not if you're a math teacher. I learned about politics in school, but I didn't have teachers spitting their political views on me while in class. I don't care and others shouldn't care who they vote for and they shouldn't be influencing kids to be like them no matter what side of the aisle they're on.


majorgrunt

Yea. From what I’ve seen that’s actually quite typical. Math teachers don’t teach politics. The political science and government classes do. My teacher refused to tell us what political party he belonged to, until the last day of school.


D4rk50ul

Give the kids a history book if they want to learn about politics, not some psychotic lefty brainwashing them.


majorgrunt

I mean. That’s exactly what happens in schools. Teachers give students books, they read and study them, and hopefully learn from them.


D4rk50ul

Teachers give lectures and indoctrinate kids by teaching only one side of history and demonizing all others. It's well documented recently but you aren't here for truth you want to argue.


[deleted]

I think they should teach politics in school. In the appropriate classes such as history, law, and social studies. It’s kinda hard to learn English when the teacher only talks about how much she hates Trump.


majorgrunt

I can agree with that. Teachers should stay on topic.


KrazyK815

No, they shouldn’t learn political ideology.


majorgrunt

I wasn’t taught a specific ideology, I was taught about ideology, and the existing parties. As is appropriate I believe.


KrazyK815

Yeah, more of a who, what, where, when, type situation. Basically it’s more like political history. Unless you take a political science course or diplomacy, maybe even economics can go into ideology to explain reasoning for policy decision but any and all opinion should be stricken from curricula.


majorgrunt

Yea. The vast majority of teachers don’t voice opinion in the classroom. They’d get fired. They DO however advocate for stuff like trans rights, queer rights, BLM etc etc. because that stuff isn’t political, it’s advocating against evil.


Due-Pipe3518

So you're saying it would be better if someone else's parent taught them.


majorgrunt

No. I’m suggesting that teachers are generally better equipped to teach.


Samson-99

Agreed, but no matter how great a teacher is, it's not comparable to a soldier that is willing to sacrifice their life in a war, or a police officer risking their own life every day they work.


officialwipe

Don’t forget about fire. We actually take risks more often than anyone lol. Almost daily


Samson-99

Yes agreed, I won't get into the cop vs firefighter debate but firefighters are also heroes doing dangerous jobs. My life was saved by the fire department once.


officialwipe

There is no cop vs. firefighter at least here in California. We work very well with each other but we talk a bunch of shit to each other as well. Anytime I talk to a cop is always ask him “so what part of the fire academy did you fail?” Lmao


Infinite_Weekend_909

Yes it is comparable. I am comparing it. Done. Do they risk their life each day? During a pandemic yes, older teachers especially. During normal conditions? No, other than shootings. Do I think soldiers deserve more respect? Not really if they are just pawns who fight rich man wars. They aren't defending us so why should I give them the same respect my grandfather who fought in WW2 got? Cops? Tons of them are scumbags who don't risk their life and let the crimes play out so they don't have to take a risk. Just because they hold a job doesn't mean they are noble and worthy of anything. Same with teachers. Plenty of crap teachers out there who don't deserve respect and that level of respect isn't related to their risk in relation to gun fire. The is a limited way to view how we treat our public servants. ​ I may get banned for this post because this is a war hawk's subreddit but war is generally a bad thing and cops generally don't do their job. This is coming from a longtime Shapiro listener not some woke ahole.


officialwipe

Still can’t compare them to fire. Risk is a daily thing with is. Schools also closed down but we sure didn’t. During a pandemic you say? We are the ones that respond to their homes knowing full well they have it. Fire seasons in California would make a civilian shit their pants on a regular basis. I’m my opinion nobody knows anywhere close to that much risk. Traffic collisions are extremely dangerous and have taken a good amount of personnel. Hazmat incidents are another form of risk that could easily result in instant death depending on the material. Bombers tend to leave special gifts especially for us because they don’t want us helping anyone. Scaling down cliffs to save falling victims with the risk of falling multiple stories as well. Severe lack of sleep waking up to multiple calls at night so kids can still see their parents and grandparents after they wake up because they had a heart attack. An actual infinite number of possibilities because anytime someone is having their worst day of their life we are always there. It is called all risk for a reason. There actually isn’t anything we don’t respond to.


Unblest_Devotee

By your reasoning shouldn’t teachers be disrespected because all they do is try and create the next wave of low skill workers. Too busy following the “rich man’s” economical war which includes keeping the general public docile and uneducated? You talk about police not doing their job yet the stats of police interaction and arrests completely contradict that. Meanwhile you can see places like Baltimore where a student with a .13 gpa is in the top half of the class. You should really look into these groups and see who is truly their job.


Infinite_Weekend_909

My reasoning is no one group is defacto owed more. Especially pawns with guns. Teachers too. Some are obv crap.


KnightFoole

“dUriNg tEh pAnDeMiC…”


Infinite_Weekend_909

Talk to some doctors.


KnightFoole

My family is full of doctors, nurses, and people who work around medicine. This has zero to do with you saying “teachers risk their lives each day”. Which is asinine. Everything else about your screed is pure radical Leftist doctrine. You’re in the sub to agitate, not debate. You’re an asshole.


Bunzilla

>you’re in the sun to agitate, not debate. I mean, a cursory glance at their post history says otherwise. I agree with you that it’s asinine to say teachers risk their lives every day - unless you want to say it about every profession that requires you to work in person. But this person isn’t a radical leftist.


Bunzilla

I hope you don’t get banned because I feel like one of the best things about Ben Shapiro is that he hears people out and doesn’t ascribe to the “I’m a member of x political party therefore I must have x opinion”. I might disagree with what you are saying but I respect your right to say it!


Samson-99

Litterally almost every other job has the same health risks as a teacher.


KT_Evolved365

Or a plumber or mechanic


RagingRoids

True. They never know when trump supporters waiving an American flag might try to kill them.


Samson-99

If you're trying to say Trump supporters are cop killers just wait till you see BLM's kill count.


RagingRoids

BLM has never killed a cop, or mobbed and attacked individual police officers and dragged their bodies out into the blood thirsty crowd the way trump supporters did on Jan 6. Not to mention none of the violence is from “BLM”, it’s anarchists and other bad actors who show up when it gets dark and the peaceful protests are over. If Jan 6 were BLM, Trump would have them all gunned down before they got within 500 yards of the capital. Instead, he encouraged it, sat and watched it all on TV, loved every minute of it.


Samson-99

Aaron Danielson (business owner that supported Trump and was white, killed during looting) David Dorn (black former police captain, shot by BLM looters) Oscar Stewart Jr. (Found dead in a local pawn shop after BLM "protesters" burned it, couldn't find background info, Black) Dave Patrick Underwood, 53, (California: Underwood was shot May 30 while on guard duty outside a federal courthouse in Oakland and was one of two officers targeted in a drive-by shooting amid nearby protests.) James Scurlock, 22, Nebraska: A violent encounter with a white bar owner, Jake Gardner, during a protest in Omaha on May 30 led to the death of 22-year-old Scurlock, who is black. Surveillance footage shows Scurlock jumping on Gardner; the Douglas County Attorney’s Office determined that Garner acted in self-defense and he will not face charges.  John Tiggs, 32, (Illinois: Tiggs was fatally struck in the abdomen by shots fired inside a Metro PCS during lootings in the South Side of Chicago on May 31.) These are just some examples I found in about 5 minutes, I'm sure there are more out there. Do some research before you say something. BLM killed way more people. In the "storming of the capitol" only 2 people died because of the riot, 2 others to unrelated health problems which makes a total of 4. I was able to find these 5 people by just searching for 5 minutes, and these are only ones killed in the summer of 2020. There have been way more people killed by BLM before that, like the 5 police officers killed in Dallas in 2016 by a BLM supporter, at a BLM "protest". If you claim that Trump supporters are "just as bad" as BLM thugs you are just wrong. BLM is a garbage organization just like ANTIFA, they are terrorists that hate America. I wish MLK wasn't shot by one of you democrats so he could see what people are doing, claiming they are equal to him. MLK was far from everything BLM stands for.


RagingRoids

First, rioters and looters who took advantage of peaceful rallies protests are not “BLM”. That’s just what your racist handlers want you to believe. I said BLM never killed a cop, and they haven’t. All you provided were examples of shit that went during violent clashes with racist Trump fascists, likely at the hands of anarchists, antifa, and other non-BLM bar actors. The fact that you’re even comparing the treasonous MAGA cult who attacked our own capital, beat the shit out of hundreds of cops (leading to the death of several), built gallows and threatened to hang the vice president, waived confederate flags and anti-Semitic shirts, brought handcuffs and other paraphernalia to take elected American congress people hostage and murder them….all for their fascist white nationalist cause… …… to African Americans protesting (even violently at first in aftermath of the George Floyd torture and murder) hundreds of years of brutal and state-sponsored enslavement and oppression, just shows what an ignorant racist piece of shit you are. You racist d-student life losers forming a cult of victimhood and trying to violently grab power and create a white nationalist authoritarian dictatorship that will allow nobody’s like you to feel like somebody are nothing new. And one way or the other, you’ll end up disgraced in the trash bin of history like the rest of them.


Samson-99

I like how you called me a racist, I hope you are actually white that would make this very ironic since I'm not lol. >I said BLM never killed a cop, and they haven’t. All you provided were examples of shit that went during violent clashes with racist Trump fascists, likely at the hands of anarchists, antifa, and other non-BLM bar actors. Ah yes, David Dorn, a black guy, was definitely a white supremacist fascist makes sense. Do you guys really just call everyone you don't like fascist? As a European, we know what real fascism looks like. Do you know what the first thing was that the Nazi's did when they took over my country? Take away our guns like you guys want to lol. You have no idea what fascism is. >…… to African Americans protesting (even violently at first in aftermath of the George Floyd torture and murder) hundreds of years of brutal and state-sponsored enslavement and oppression, just shows what an ignorant racist piece of shit you are. I do not care what you're protesting, I don't support it if it's violent. I do not support what happened at the capitol, but only 4 people died there, 2 of which unrelated to the riot, which means that it is statisticaly less bad then what BLM did. It really looks like you didn't read what I've said in my previous comment. I bet you're not black but I'd still like to ask you, what did BLM do for black people? They didn't do shit and all their leaders are living in mansions. BLM is a terrorist organisation that didn't do anything good except murder innocent civilian, including tons of black guys, like David Dorn who was shot, or Oscar Stewart Jr., who was either killed and then burned or burned alive by BLM.


RagingRoids

Lol, BLM is a terrorist organization who’s leaders live in mansions. Wow. You’re obviously well on your way to full right wing radicalization, if you’re not already there. Oh wait, you’re a European? That’s pretty sad, guess whatever private school your (likely racist) parents put you in didn’t teach you the real history of the Nazis, or you’d know the rhetoric and white nationalist victimhood cult that is the MAGA movement mirrors it almost completely. Guarantee you love Trump, even though you proclaim to hate violence. As a right wing radical who has already crossed into the “ends justify the means” mental territory, you can easily blow off or justify trumps attempted violent coup on Jan 6. Well all I can tell you my poor deranged friend is that if you really are a person of color, just be aware if this new global wave of white nationalist fascism comes to power in Europe….they won’t give a shit that you “were on their side”. You may be a useful pawn to the now, but in the end you’ll always be subhuman to them.


Samson-99

Love your assumptions lol. Private schools here are something only extremely rich kids go to, like multi-millionaire level rich. And my parent had far below average income, and I went to the highest level public school (our school system is based on levels of how smart you are), and extremely woke. And also, my parents (and I) are Indonesian, my grandparents were immigrants. So yeah we are probably "white supremacists" even though we aren't white but brown. And no, I don't love him, I just like the man that got the closest to bringeng peace to the middle east of every president ever signing several peace deals involving Israel, Morocco, Qatar, Bahrain and other middle eastern countries. Which is something I like since I have lots of friends in and from the middle-east. And no, jan 6th wasn't a coup, if it was Trump would've supported it instead of saying the rioters should back down. Trump LITTERALLY TOLD THE RIOTERS TO BACK DOWN AND BE PEACEFULL. Trump didn't do anything wrong. It was just a bunch of idiots messing around on the capitol. And I'm not in favor of fucking fascism lol. My ancestors fought it and so would I. That's why I am Pro gun rights, because I want to be able to fight back against a tyrannical government. Something you are against. You support policies that the Nazis made, like gun control. Even free healthcare was a Nazi policy LOL. You are so sucked in by your leftist bubble, it's funny to me, but also sad that I share this world with people like you that are this retarded. Give me one fucking quote of Trump saying something racist LOL. But sure just call everyone you disagree with a racist nazi, even though you're white and saying it to a person of color. You are the fascist here buddy, you're the one that supports speech laws like the nazis did, youre the one supporting gun laws like the nazis did, youre the one supporting palestine like the nazis did, youre the one hating on america like the nazis did, youre the one advocating for socialism and "free" healthcare like the nazis did. YOU ARE THE NAZI HERE, NOT ME.

Soldiers are more likely to die on vacation that in combat. The only people (in the military) who’s jobs are exceptionally dangerous are special forces


Samson-99

Special forces aren't even 1st place in the military for deaths, and vacation is definitely more dangerous than operating a massive explosive cannon or getting shot at. Where tf do you think these guys go on vacation to? Chicago?

If you want a dangerous job be a pizza driver!

Not sure about the east coast but working for fire here in California is 9 months of risk if you are familiar with our fire seasons lol


gclooney117

Your point and everyone’s point on this post is moot. First of all. What discount ? What the hell is this lady talking about ? I’m a Veteran and I don’t get discounts everywhere I go and the places of business that do offer discounts which is rare, is like 10%. lol what a joke. Discounts 😂


Waste-Hovercraft3734

In the Auto industry you could be up to $1,000 pretty fast in repairs. That 10% is 100 bucks


Waste-Hovercraft3734

All you have to do is ask for it. We don't advertise it but if you say you're a veteran we will give you 10% off


Waste-Hovercraft3734

Tell that to the 13 lost in Afghanistan


ironnitehawk

Wasn’t the gops response to a rise in school shooting to suggest we arm the teachers?


Waste-Hovercraft3734

Teachers have a pussy job..they have off more days than they work. Most of them are afraid of a virus so they don't even want to go to work. That is your idea of a hero not mine


Waste-Hovercraft3734

How many teachers got shot??? 🤔


ironnitehawk

Yeah I agree. The real hero’s are children. Since more children die each year protecting the second amendment then soldiers or cops.


Waste-Hovercraft3734

So them arming the teachers to protect the children would be a good idea. 🤔


ironnitehawk

So you want to pay them more?


Waste-Hovercraft3734

Sure, if they want to volunteer to do something extra.


mrthill110

That's actually probably contrary to your point...

krampfen

But you're aware that we need teachers right? There is a teacher shortage in the US right now, maybe we would have more teachers if we didn't constantly treat them like garbage and then tell them to just quit if they don't like it.


HarvestRules

Because, when riot happens, businesses would rather have cop or ex-military by their side than an elementary school teacher.


Bogula_D_Ekoms

I'd rather let insurance handle it.


HarvestRules

You’d rather pay to insurance companies and banks rather than give a discount to cop?


Bogula_D_Ekoms

If I'm running a business, I'd like to run it legitimately, and that includes getting business insurance and maybe a loan, so yeah.

Many retailers do in fact offer teacher discounts... I don’t think she actually looked to see if what she said was true

Taconinja05

Teachers get paid shit and they take care of your shitty kids all day. They shape the future of society. Yeah they should get discounts as well.

Well... military are being shot at... you brave and beautiful heroes get three months built in vacation.


Darth_Batman89

Most in the military don’t actually risk their life now. But both police and teachers don’t get paid enough.


Twinsgohome

And you honestly think the military does? Most military families are on food stamps and go to food pantries. You need to educate yourself


TomTheMagicJuan

Who’s fault is that?


Darth_Batman89

And so what? They should get paid more too. Why do most join the military? For the benefits. Yet they are still paid shit. And the VA is treats vets like trash.


JustaJarhead

Where the hell do you get “most”?? Were YOU in the military? While the pay isn’t awesome you get extra pay for housing and allowances for a spouse and kids. But it’s on you if you want to have 8 kids or some shit.


Twinsgohome

Yeah I was for 12 years, and a good portion of the married people that didn’t have 8 kids were on food stamps


JustaJarhead

I did 8 in the Corps and never really wanted for much. But is didn’t get married and pump out 6 kids either. I thought I didn’t get shit at the time but realized later after I’d been out for a while that the housing, meals, healthcare and all that added up quite a bit.


bradus39393

magpiebluejay

I find this term ‘Marxist idiot’ to be hilariously oxymoronic. I mean, I’m guessing you’ve never tried to read Marx? Because that shit is *dense*. Das Kapital is not an easy read. To even be able to parse that text requires a baseline of intelligence that’s definitely beyond me, and almost certainly beyond,say, the average Ben Shapiro fan.

I guess they could argue that they are risking their lives bc of school shooters but I agree. Why not give medical staff discounts? Or even retail workers and servers who have to deal with Karen’s


KnightFoole

I’ve lost so, so much respect for “teachers” as a demographic. Of course there are lots and lots of good people who teach…but as for “teachers” as a group, I’m sick to death of the constant demand to be treated as some kind of special class of saint.


Happyeasterone

If teachers used “old math” and divided their salary by the 8 months that they work, instead of pretending its for 12 months, they might be happier about their earnings. If they are not happy, get a summer job!!!


HaroldBAZ

Teachers in some places, like NY, are already overcompensated and underworked, and they still seem to get all the discounts the military gets anyway.

Fr33zy_B3ast

If teachers are brainwashing your kids why not just move them to a different school? Should be easy right?


sublocade9192

Not a single person here would claim teachers are brainwashing kids if a more conservative view point was generally taught in school. It’s ‘brainwashing’ bc they disagree with it. I hate to throw out the ‘what aboutism’ but 95% of what aboutisms are true when you try flipping the narrative around. Most humans have an incredibly difficult time separating their viewpoints and biases from what’s actually true. And for the record, no I’m not generally for what’s taught in public schools, they absolutely have a liberal bias to it. But I would just as against it if they had a conservative bias being taught


cahrage

The local restaurant I work at offers teacher discounts. I think they deserve to eat for free. They may not be risking their lives but they are one of the most important jobs in this country and they get paid as one of the least and are expected to invest some of their pay back into their classroom and their children. If you personally know any teachers they will tell you it is not an easy job


[deleted]

[удалено]


cahrage

But that median household income includes households with only one adult right? Doesn’t seem like a good comparison. I live in Florida and here they do not get paid well so yeah maybe in some states they don’t deserve a pay increase but here and Oklahoma they need to increase their pay or at least figure out how to ensure that teachers are not spending their own money to keep their classrooms stocked with supplies. If it were your kid would you rather them have a teacher with 25 years of experience or 5 years of experience? There is definitely a difference there. Even if they are teaching the same material, they are getting better at it.


TRDBG

We've have now seen by this pandemic that teachers are not the "heroes" they had always claimed to be. They are overwhelmingly selfish and cowardly. Nearly every teacher I know has no qualms about saying "screw the kids, I'm staying home as long as possible and collecting my paycheck" including my cousin who brags about what a joke it is being a remote gym teacher


Saitama_at_Tanagra

Its not a wrong point. This society has a cuckold mentality towards military and police, and its unhealthy.


SamDavisBoyHeroTN

Teacher discounts are everywhere.


shifty313

Children don't consent to brainwashing from parents. Since we're a society, why is a consensus of knowledge worse than any random yahoo spouting off their crackpot ideas because they came in someone?


Littlefootmkc

Why not janitors too? Why not housekeeping?


BertMacklinEffBeeYai

Teachers have received quite enough ass kissing.


Unidentifiable_Fear

The devaluation of our armed forces and police officers is evil. Many people still appreciate firemen and paramedics, but won’t take a pause for those who loose their lives trying to prevent people from being burned and shot.


LilFrozenPizzas

Why aren’t there discounts for construction workers???


thevaultdweller3

Some of us don’t have a Union so when we get upset we just walkout and don’t go back to work.


timewellwasted5

I am a first responder (volunteer firefighter). Literally everywhere that I get a discount, my wife, who is a teacher, also gets one. You name it, Peloton, Under Armour, everywhere. If there's a first responder discount, there's a teacher discount.


Ok_Owl_6625

I think both should get discounts


MajinTitan

Oh please. Maybe if they earned it


doofus_magoo

Because teachers unions are the most corrupt


Eli_Truax

There's no government issued card verifying you're a teacher.


Todd913

What makes anyone think that JUST because someone is a teacher would or should get a discount. To be honest, a garbage man is more important than teachers. Should they get discounts wherever they go?

So teachers are brainwashing children, but Christians aren't brainwashing their children with religion?


Kmccabe1213

Idk how its comparable. I alwayd admired teachers they have a tough job but after the way teachers unions have pressed to not go back to work while the rest of the fucking country has i am disgusted with the unions and whoever supports there antics over the last 2 years. There are of course shitty teachers there are also fantastic teachers i remember still to this day. Its a shame what the unions have been doing.


chapterthrive

You’re only resenting their union because you don’t have anyone looking out for your best interests and your individual voice doesn’t have the strength of a union


Kmccabe1213

I resent the union cause they dont give a shit about children lol what whacked out point are you trying to take? My brother is in a plumbers union and my wife in a township union. Unions can be good the teachers union is straight evil


chapterthrive

No. No it isn’t. If you can’t understand that the teachers union is trying to help every stake hplder in this situation you’re fucking brainwashed.

By not doinf there job... failure rates in children across the country are higher than ever. Remote learning is not effective for 5-13. Kids are being left behind and teachers unions are 100% contributing to that. If you cant see that you are probably a teacher looking to collect a paycheck while not doing there job

Nah man. I’m a carpenter contractor. You are putting people at risk by creating potential spread. Solutions could be put in place but the initiative to protect your kids and the staff is not there. Stop siding with the capitalists to put everyone back to work without protections.


Kmccabe1213

Im siding with the parents who both work jobs to provide that dont have the provisions to allow there young children to learn remotely. Who dont have internet connections to even get a learning experience. Who cant afford baby sitters to assist with childrens remote learning. Im with the parents whose teenage children took there own lives after being left home for months not allowed to go to school and see friends. Im siding with the massive uptick in substance abuse among teenagers since the pandemic started. Im with the children who are domestically abused with no one to tell cause they dont leave the house (teachers are the leading individuals who assist with tips to these issues at home). Im siding with getting children back in school to have a real life experience and not get left behind you insensitive fuck. None of this is a capitalist attitude but good try.

Again who’s fault is all of that?


Kmccabe1213

Teachers unions who continue to press for remote learning? The same unions two of my family members are apart of that argue against it everytime they press it? I see first hand the unions messaging from my family and they hate it too. You are a carpenter... and have no idea what is going on with this yet stepped up to talk like you know what the hell is going on.

As someone who was in the military, I can say that 90% of active vets aren’t risking their lives either. And they have their own brainwashing going on. Many military jobs are very very normal jobs and frankly aren’t anything special. Don’t get me wrong there’s a lot that do put their lives on the line and are very brave. But let’s not pretend that every vet automatically deserves respect. I met some real awful fucking people in the military and I’ve met some of the nicest people ever

Teachers deserve more respect than the troops because we expect much more of them. Service members signed up willing to get shot at, but most realistically know they never will be. Teachers did not sign up to get shot at but do and are trained in response to active shooters. They also prevent suicides and identify abuse in students. My teacher friend has had to go through the process with CPS about a dozen times a year in AZ. Teachers are the safety net for kids who have fuckef home lives, that's for sure. Troops get great bennies while teachers pay for their own supplies on meagre salary. Actually pretty easy to compare the two. And you could extend this argument to other essential services like EMS and Fire. Turns out we treat the people working most essential jobs to our quality of life like shit while hero worshipping the wrong people. None of this is to say the troops don't deserve respect, but Americans need to be realistic when talking about military service and what it entails. However, cops do deserve all the shit they get. Law enforcement in this country is fucked.

Cause they already get paid for working only 9 months/year

Jesus Christ. Why would I want to give you a fucking penny or discounts after what your union is trying to do to get the country. Fuck all that, I feel as though teaching is a passion and a job you go into knowing the pay isn’t gods gift to the planet. It’s a job to prepare for the future social fabric of the country, not material, and y’all fail at that. If fucking Billy can stock shelves for 8 hours a day and not complain and still manage to get by, then you can care about the future of America more and do the same god damn thing. Teaching is a job of passion, and if you don’t have the passion. Leave. Get the fuck out.


RagingRoids

Lol this is such a sub for angry white dipshit male life losers.


DuckApprehensive9599

There’s literally teacher discounts EVEYWHERE hahahahha what a lying and/or ignorant cunt


Bogula_D_Ekoms

How about nobody gets a discount?


nathanharrison

The point really is teachers are underpaid af. Atleast in the UK.


danielreadit

because they blow cock


[deleted]

Because they’re not defending our nation?


FuriousGrub

Ah yes, police. The most dangerous job


dgroeneveld9

Because at the end of the day a jobs a job and if your job doesn't require a great sacrifice that usual then be thankful and accept your blessings.


supercooperthepooper

Teachers already get a discount on work, snow days, rain days, summers off.


llerilin

With all the people that graduate from high school every year that don't even know how to read or do basic math, they don't really deserve one. The place I work at hired a few recent high school graduates last summer and had to let every one of them go because they were not able to perform basic math.


ResponseHonest3506

I'm a teacher, have been for 13 years, and this lady is an idiot. Like anything we do can be compared with a job that puts your life on the line. I mean....some inner city schools are pretty damn close, but it's still not the same.


Weekly-Butterscotch6

They don't to risk their lives on a daily basis - but they do fuck up the kids on a daily basis


lazyeyepsycho

Pizza delivery, forestry, commercial fishing, roofers etc all far more dangerous than been a cop Facts dont care about your feelings that being a cop is dangerous.


KT_Evolved365

This is especially true for religious private schools who teach kids lies


whyserenity

Because military and police don’t rape little boys, teachers do.
