Join Jim and Greg as they serve up three good martinis, even if the last one is a bit iffy. First, they;re glad to see CVS reporting excellent progress administering vaccines to residents in nursing homes and assisted living facilities. They’re also happy to see the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York investigating the Cuomo administration for covering up the number of nursing home deaths. And they welcome President Biden’s goal of having K-8 students in school five days a week within his first 100 days, although they’ll believe it when they see it.

    Will the Xiden administration turn on the teachers unions?  They’ll probably let the governors do that, while tut-tutting in public and celebrating in private.

    One problem with the “investigation” of Cuomo et al, is that even at the worst, they won’t be convicted of something like negligent manslaughter (at minimum) which would be appropriate, and given prison sentences.

    I think Jim is missing Biden’s tactics on schools. Soon there will be a ridiculous bill that will throw mountains of money at the school unions and the development of new woke education, and when Republicans balk he will try to hang the failure to open schools on the failure to pass the bill.

    That’s possible too.  But Biden is already getting push-back on over-spending, including from Dems, so trying to pile on that much more could get blocked.  If he lets the governors break the teachers unions, it doesn’t get put on HIM.

    Whenever conservatives get excited about Democrats in legal trouble, I always tell them, if there’s a Democrat or RINO anywhere in the decision loop, nothing will happen.

    Breaking the teachers’ unions is not in the interests of the Democratic Party; and the Democratic Party always puts its interests ahead of the country’s.

    Maybe it will only happen in some states, especially those with (seriously) Republican governors and/or legislatures.  But overall wouldn’t the Dems benefit more from teachers being dependent, like the Dems seem to want everyone else to be, rather than being someone they have to “serve?”

    In effect, the union forces its minority of Republican members to donate to the Democrats.  The Supreme Court ruled this is unconstitutional, but the Democrats have ignored that ruling, for the most part.
