    For reasons unexplained, American Federation of Teachers union chief Randi Weingarten announced Monday morning that she would be heading to the Ukrainian border to "assess" the damage after Russia bombarded the Eastern European nation.

    What does this union boss and Democratic crony have to do with Ukraine's war effort? Well, it's hard to say, but Weingarten claims she's there to help the kids and their teachers.

    Of course, after the learning loss created by government lockdowns in response to COVID, it is doubtful that most American schoolchildren could point out where Europe is on a map, let alone Ukraine.

    That tragedy was inflicted thanks to folks like Weingarten, who practically kept teachers and kids out of the classroom as long as possible. In turn, literacy rates have plummeted, math skills dropped, and depression has risen among students. American families are now dealing with the consequences, and an entire generation's academic progress has been stunted.

    Since the pandemic, public education has only worsened. Daniel McGrath, the acting associate commissioner of the National Center for Education Statistics, recently stated that America's school children have experienced "some of the largest declines we have observed in a single assessment cycle in 50 years..."

    Regardless, Weingarten says she was invited to Ukraine as "part of the global labor movement's commitment to assist the region's educators in standing up for freedom and democracy while keeping refugee kids learning in perilous times."

    "As Putin tries to take a blowtorch to democracy, we stand in solidarity with the educators, students and families in Ukraine," Weingarten said in a press release. "They are fighting against Russian aggression to uphold their democracy, their freedom, and their self-determination-and after nearly eight months of conflict their righteous resistance grows stronger each day."

    Weingarten added that the war on Ukrainian families with school-aged children has "been brutal" while praising "Ukrainian teachers' persistence, compassion, and bravery in helping students continue their learning in an active war zone should be lifted up and championed."

    Those Ukrainian teachers should take the compliment with a grain of salt.

    Weingarten also championed American school teachers during the pandemic, praising them for supposed bravery. Of course, thanks to remote learning, such teachers could go practically wherever they wanted. In fact, a Chicago Teacher's Union board member was busted after taking a posh vacation to the Caribbean while Chicago schools stayed closed.

    Perhaps Weingarten will advise Ukrainian teachers to push for virtual schools. After all, if COVID was too dangerous for American teachers to travel in person, certainly a warzone is too dangerous for Ukrainian teachers.

    Maybe Weingarten will trash school choice in Ukraine as she does here at home. Maybe she will try to unionize Kyiv teachers. Come to think of it, are school teachers forced to pay union fees funding Weingarten's trip overseas? Maybe she'll bring back an "I Heart Zelenski" tee shirt for one lucky union member.

    Actually, perhaps it is best she just stays in Ukraine. She can do less damage to the American public education system from there.

Inarguably, the policies of the Democrats in congress and Joe Biden as the Executive is plunging the United States into a recession, if we are not already there; a recession that was completely avoidable. Will abrupt changes in policies occur in time?
  Yes, the Democrats have a bold plan, yet to be revealed, to save us.
  No, there will have to be a complete undoing of the damage done by these Democrats.
  I can't do simple math, so how am I to understand the concept of basic economics.

It has been far too many years since the Woke theology interlaced its canons within the fabric of the Indoctrination Realm, so it is nigh time to ask: Does this Representative Republic continue, as a functioning society of a self-governed people, by contending with the unusual, self absorbed dictates of the Woke, and their vast array of Victimhood scenarios?
  Yes, the Religion of Woke must continue; there are so many groups of underprivileged, underserved, a direct result of unrelenting Inequity; they deserve everything.
  No; the Woke fools must be toppled from their self-anointed pedestal; a functioning society of a good Constitutional people cannot withstand this level of "existential" favoritism as it exists now.
  I just observe; with this thoughtful observation: What will happen "when the Vikings are breeching our walls;" how do the Woke react?
